Milly and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Thank you to Carolyn, Claire, Lauryn, and Olivia! You guys are the sweetest. It's really flattering that you guys think my life is exciting enough to read about, it means a lot.

Last night I went to bead around ten, but I was woken up at midnight by Latin music. Yes, Latin music. I ran to my window to see a live Mariachi band playing across the street from my house, and all my Hispanic neighbors outside with beer and food and festivities! I wanted so badly to go out and join the party, but I didn't want to wake up my parents, plus I'm too shy to walk up to a random party like that. If I had had Amy or Alison with me though, we totally would've done it. So instead, I sat out on my patio and watched and listened to the music.

I came back inside, and watched La Vie En Rose (one of my favorite movies of all time) and talked to my friend Bradley(who I actually dated once)'s current girlfriend, Heather. We've always been friendly acquaintances, but last night we actually had a really good conversation that lasted a couple hours. I like her a lot, and she's a couple years younger than me but she lives right down the street from me.

Then I woke up this morning, talked on the phone with Alison for a bit, and then I went thrifting with my new friend Milly. Milly is this really sweet, pretty girl who was in my driver's ed class in junior year but we've never actually talked. But apparently, we mutually Facebook/Tumblr stalked each other. So today we hung out for the first time. I really like her and I hope we start hanging out more regularly!

I got two new movies that I've been really wanting to see, but are impossible to find, The Science of Sleep and Driving Lessons. So I'm very excited about that.

Anyway, I'm very very tired, so I'm going to get some rest. Goodnight!


  1. haha, i saw your posts and such about waking up to the mariachi band. that's just so weird. xD it really would have been so cool to join. maybe it'll happen again some other year and you and your friends can join that time. :D
    also, milly is a cute name. but anyway, i'm glad you enjoyed your time spent with her and all. making new friends is always fun, especially is they know the wonders of tumblr! that's a great added bonus. :]
    & i find it funny that you hung with a girl who was in your driver's ed class, and then later on got a movie titled driving lessons. xD

  2. hi bree!
    i'm going to check out every movie mentioned in this post just because i've been trying to find some good new movies/books to get into.
    i googled and wikipedia'd all i could but couldn't find any holidays or events on august 22nd that your neighbors might have been celebrating. you should ask them sometime!
    hope you got some nice clothes, i love going thrifting. and i also hope you and milly become closer friends! she sounds great. anyone who knows how tumblr works would be a good friend.
