A Weeks Worth of Thoughts...

This is going to be a very scattered and most likely unorganized post. So I am apologizing early if you can't make it through the whole thing! It's been a busy week, I feel like I'm always saying that so I guess I should just say it's been a typical week... ha. Lots of Big things happened this week.. for starters I got my license renewed...apparently it had been expired?? For like 2 years! I have just had an ID card and hadn't even noticed so I went to the DMV to get my license back and get everything in order since I will be taking over the title of my sisters car... well apparently when you have had an expired license without renewing it you have to take the test over again... the paper test. If you know me, you might know that I cheated off of my brother on the written test when I was 17...and since it's been about 3 years since I've actually driven (no need living in the city) I was slightly nervous.. but I passed with flying colors! So as of Tuesday I have a license and a car! I also have discovered that I HATE driving on that's GREAT. (haha)

I've spent most of the week over at Mom & Dad's just hanging out, running errands and shopping with my sister, having dinner with the family and just relishing every last crazy second with them here. It's been great, and officially as of today 3 of my 4 siblings have already started their journey East. Stopping first in North Carolina to visit with family before the move to NYC. Mr. Jones and myself will be joining them in 2 weeks!

Something I meant to post about on Monday but forgot was that my Sisters amazing and adorable friends threw her a going away party last Friday! I was so happy that they included me in their festivities and they did a great job of pulling off a fun and exciting surprise party for my sister.

First up was dinner at an Italian restuarant in the "Little Italy" section of SF..

My Sister is the cutie in the Blue Jumper..always perfectly dressed!

After dinner her friends continued with the surprises with a "scavenger hunt" around the neighborhood leading her through some of their favorite "stomping grounds" finally ending up at the final bar where all of her guy friends were waiting to surprise her! It was so much fun and it was great to see how loved she is by all of her friends.. I know they will miss her as much as I will.

My Sissy and I... love.

Mr. Jones and the guest of honor!

It's also a big week for a few of my dearest friends, three birthdays this week! First up my amazing friend and personal teacher inspiration Danes..

Love this lady so much and she is an amazing teacher that I am so happy to have to look up to.

Also my oldest and forever friend Whit celebrated her birthday this week as well, I have known her since the second grade and we really have seen each other go through every life stage together, she is my LIFE inspiration! She is an amazing friend, mother, wife, daughter, teacher, cook, home decorator, the list goes on and on...I love her and one of the positives about my family moving East is that she lives outside of NYC so I will get to see her more often as well!

Whit and her adorable son!!

And last but not least, it's my dear friend Marks birthday today! I love him and my "roomie" Mere so much and wish that we could spend the weekend celebrating in LA but family came first this weekend and hopefully they will be here permanently soon! He's not just my best friends boyfriend he is also someone that I can genuinely call my friend as well. I love him dearly and wish him a very happy birthday!

Love them with all my heart... Mark the birthday boy and Mere.

Ok.. well if anyone made it to the end of this post congratulations!! I will try to do a better job with updates so as not to incesantly talk and talk and talk... just so much on my mind that I had ( wanted) to share! Hope everyone has a great Friday!

XOXO- Miss. V


  1. I made it to the end! :) jk it wasnt bad at all!
    I cant believe you havent driven in 3 years!! Thats pretty awesome! So why is the fam moving across the county??

  2. Dad's job was transferred and it was too good of an opportunity to pass up, all the siblings are 25 and under so NYC sounded very appealing!!
