Memorial Day Partying!

I'm linking up with Stephanie and Chelsee (like usual), but first I have to share some great news! I have a new life plan! Okay, a little dramatic, but my plan for Charlotte has changed some.

Original plan: Start work on May 28th. Move in with my grandparents, drive 45 minutes to an hour to work every day, have no privacy/free time, have to leave Zuko in Georgia with my parents. Save every cent I make to try to afford an apartment in Ballantyne (expensive area of Charlotte) by myself and eat Ramen until Christian was ready to move out in September/October. Cry a lot.

New plan: Start work on June 10th. Get paid for working May 28th-June 9th even though I'm not since they changed my date and I am relocating. I also found an apartment only about 20 minutes from work that's an affordable one bedroom in a gated community. I am taking over someone's lease so I have no extra fees/deposits. Just rent. I get to stay home for two extra weeks and enjoy more summertime/family time while getting paid and I don't have to live with my grandparents at all whatsoever! The lease ends in August and Christian will either move in and renew or we will find somewhere else!

Okay, so now onto Memorial Day weekend! My family is going to our lake house in Anderson, SC on Lake Hartwell so I won't be getting too crazy. But, if I was able to this is how I would spend the day.

Drinking these:

Watermelon vodka (lots)
Sprite (a little)
Cranberry juice (barely any)


And, this one, I don't have a picture of it but it's the best...

2 cans of frozen lemonade 
1 can of cheap light beer

Grab a pitcher and dump the lemonade in it. Fill the cans with vodka twice. Then add half a can of water. Dump the light beer in. Stir. 

Get realllllll drunk reallll fast while not realizing it sitting at your kitchen table making plans for the night with your friend and then realize you can't drive anywhere and pass out.

Drink responsibly. 

I'd also be wearing this if I wasn't poor. 

Luckily, I really will be here:

And I will be sitting in the front of one of these:

Not ours, but close enough.

Here's to hoping I come back tan and not red like the current shade I'm rocking after falling asleep at the pool Tuesday.

I'm also linking up with a new follower, Kristin, for Thirsty Thursdays!

Happy Friday Eve, everyone :)

Just found you through the linkup. I'm a new follower. That drink looks amazing!! Definitely wouldn't mind having one of those at the moment. Oh's only 11:30. Hey...oh well!! lol. Looking forward to getting you know you better!!

I do a linkup called Thirsty Thursday. Come on by and link this drink up if you want!!


And P.S. The apartment thing is way better. It's always nice to have your own place. More expensive, but more freedom!!

Sweet news on the job!! Lucky you!
I love beer-o-nades. That's what we called them at least, the beer vodka and lemonade. You don't even realize how much you're drinking, my favorite kind of beverage :)
