beautiful saturday

Today was the beginning of Connor and I’s staycation. Spring break started yesterday for me but today we started house sitting for my aunt and uncle. Their jacuzzi and tv (did I mention that at our house we no longer have ANY channels because comcast requires some sort of digital contraptions for local channels now?!) are absolute luxuries. Our silly puppy is acting downright giddy about the doggie door he can use this week to go outside and play in the grass. Yay staycation! =)

So two weeks ago was my 23rd birthday and I wanted to make a list of all the averagely cool things I did with my 22nd year. Two weeks isn’t too late is it?
