SOOOooo What's chnged since Christmas? Jordan and I moved!!
Finally- Huntington was getting me down. Not really, but kinda- it's just really far from our friends who all live in the Costa Mesa area. So we moved to Irvine- it isn't quite Newport, but it's certainly a step closer. It reminds me of home... I'm originally from Northern California where its beautiful and green and spread out a bit more... Irvine at least has lots of greenery and things are a little more spread out and it isn't built on a grid like HB. Our new place is a tad bigger but still a one bedroom, but it's been so fun to decorate!! I built my own headboard and painted a wall in the living room... ok so there hasnt been a LOT of decorating yet, but hey, I'm still only working part time and last I checked, crate & barrel hadn't start a scholarship program. Here are the projects I've done thus far:
Here's the bed before... Excuse the mess, we were still in the midst of moving in...
We also bought this beautiful trunk from Crate & Barrel:
So that's pretty much it for DIYs recently... other than that I took up horseback riding- which I am LOVING!! how could you not- with this beauty as my companion:
It's been challenging but so rewarding, who needs a therapist when you have horses?! Seriously it's the best thing I've done in a long time.
My birthday came and went and now I am officially in my mid-twenties. 25 feels so much older than 24.
Aside from all that, I'm still on the hunt for full-time work. I've only had a few interviews since my last post, which has been disappointing, but I'm confident that the right thing is coming and I'll know when it shows itself. I'm currently waiting to hear back on an interview I had last week! Cross your fingers! If that one doesn't work out I'm going to have to look into what it'll take to become a super model- that seems like it shouldn't take to long, right? In any case, I'll be putting the job hunt on hold until I'm back from Europe.
EUROPE!!!! Jordan and I are going to London & Paris for 2 weeks in May- SO SO excited! His parents are taking us along with them on their very first trip to Europe- Jordan and I have both been over there a few times, so we'll be the seasoned travel guides!!
All in all, life is pretty dang good.
