    Yes!! I love your recaps, I was going to call you on not having done one for a while lol

    I’m going to have to check out the new DMB if it’s as good as you say. Congrats on being halfway through your summer class and congrats on the New Orleans trip! Sounds brilliant!

    I’m with Kyla, I was wondering where your June recap was. =)

    Happily fatigued is a wonderful feeling isnt it? I love Felicity and need to start watching it on DVD. I also think that you should start wearing neon green. I rocked the neons when I was younger, sadly there are pictures to prove this.

    We need to discuss a roadtrip too!

    Nora-time sounds great! Your dog is so so cute, we need more pictures of him on your blog! I’m a huge fan of Felicity. I love catching reruns on tv all the time…

    I just worked my way through all of the seasons of Felicity this spring. I love netflix! I had watched most of them, but had definitely missed plenty so it was fun watching the series from start to finish.

    Congrats on hitting the 1/2 way mark on grad school classes! Hopefully you get a little break before your fall classes start!

    How did the move go? AND how was Julia & Julia? It’s on my bed-side table, worth the read?

    I always love your recaps! Glad to hear the move went well..minus the futon that is!

    I love your recap! What a fun idea. I love that you said, “bane of my existence.” It’s one of my favorite things to say, and so many people are ignorant of what I mean!

  12. Jessica July 6, 2009 at 7:54 pm #

    Sounds like a great recap! What is Clean House? I haven’t heard of this before!

  13. bellerenee July 6, 2009 at 9:34 pm #

    Yay for saving money! This was a very feel-good list. Sounds like things are coming together nicely.

  14. Lys July 7, 2009 at 9:59 am #

    i’m still missing you, and reading your blog isn’t helping!

  15. Kimmers July 8, 2009 at 7:39 am #

    I am obsessed with True Blood… I was so sad last weekend when there was no new episode! And I hear ya on saving money… this upcoming paycheck will mark the start of our first real savings account and we’re both pretty ridiculously excited about that.
