Grand Prairie Uptown Theatre


I am finally all in my new apartment, with internet all set to go.  Only problem is I immediately set my priorities to unpacking my closet, so I'm yet to touch my desk, and my kitchen!  I have set up a make shift desk on the coffee table, and hope to have a real writing, reading, blogging space set up by close of business today or tomorrow.  If only work didn't get in the way...


When Lennon and I were still dating, all of two weeks ago, we visited his parents in Grand Prairie and made a stop at the historic Uptown Theatre to take a few pictures. I have quite a few folders of pictures Lennon has taken saved and ready to post, so I'm nervous what's going to happen to my outfit photos once those dry up.  I should probably order a remote to go with my tripod.


I've been doing well on my resolve - I bought pink sheets with rosebuds on them, and have been spending time with different people almost every evening for the past... four days.  I may run out of friends soon, so I hope the ones I have are ok if I start calling way more often!


To my pleasant surprise, things that I thought would bother me at first haven't: sleeping alone, coming home to just my puppy dog instead of a boyfriend, etc.  I have a balcony by my bed that I leave cracked so Bella can go in and out, and the breeze coming in and the cars that go by at a steady pace are peaceful.  I can see why people like having fish tanks, now.  I assume this has the same calming affect.


This set of pictures is also a favorite because it reminds me of movie dates.  I'm hoping I get to go on a few of those in the future.  I can't remember whether or not I like dating.


Dress: Suzane Monaco via Buffalo Exchange
Shoes: Frye's (clearance)
Cameo necklace: grandma's (a favorite, I should probably wear something new)
Bracelet: great grandma's (another favorite, especially since orange is my favorite color)
Ring: costume jewelry found in an antique mall

Like the dress! I apologize for doing this but it's time you're outed: YOU ARE NOT SINGLE!
I will refrain from listing the multitude of reasons why but none-the-less, you are not single, so you can write about living on your own for the 1st time in a long while & all the associated experiences but no more "I am single" proclamations until you are actually single. It's like a heroine addict proclaiming that they're now sober, while they continue to take methadone.

Phil - stop being so weird and doing inappropriate things like comparing me to a heroine addict on my facebook account AND blogger account. I'm sorry that you think spending time with Lennon once since moving counts as "not single," but it's really not your place to determine where I am in life or where I am not, nor is it your place to judge me based on who I spend my time with. One conversation doesn't give you that liberty. Now stop leaving me comments like this on every forum I have. I will continue to delete them if they continue to be inappropriate or false.

If you're going to blog, you should be prepared for comments that don't always agree with you. Come on Amanda, how is this inappropriate? You yourself said to me yesterday, that 'you don't feel single.' I also mentioned yesterday that I was going to out you on your blog. & 'no' I can't stop being "weird", it's part of who I am.

Amanda said...

you are indeed weird. and my first heckler. congratulations. And yes, I privately told you that I don't "feel" single after being single for two weeks. I'll work on it. The being home alone part helps. Like right now. and yesterday, and tomorrow...

Sorry about your break-up... but congrats on the new place! And that outfit is gorgeous. I wish I could wear yellow!

Amanda, after I broke up from a boyfriend and moved to Austin a few years ago, having my own little place was such a magical feeling. The unpacking part sucks, but ruling your domain and making it your own will be delicious fun. I know you're going to make it so cute, too! So, please promise to take pictures.
