The Big Move!

Let me start this by saying, I hate moving!  Moving house is soo much work, but in the end it is all worth it because we are in a fun place and we are having fun putting everything together.

Saturday we rented a U-Haul and picked up our furniture from where we were storing it at my Grandpa's house.  We spent the entire day until about 11pm at night putting everything together.





Luckily everything fit perfectly!

Today we got some wood so Grant could build us some more shelves in our closet.
There was no way everything would have fit without the extra shelving.
Before: 
After:
He added the shelves all the way down the left side and all along the top! 

We are almost done...NOT!

More Changes

This week has been really crazy busy!  I interviewed for 2 jobs, and said yes to the one I really like.
So I started a new job and moved to a new house all in one week!  Talk about crazy.
After work today I met my mom and Lacey, my cousin, and Grant at our new place to start unloading a few car loads.  Tomorrow is the BIG move where we will officially have everything in the place.
I will update with pictures soon, but right now its 11:38PM and I am soo tired and we have to start at 6 am tomorrow.

Its all so exciting!

2 Awesome Sunsets

That is right, we have had two beautiful sunsets 2 nights in a row.

This is what I normally wear when I am at home bumming around.

And this is what I wear on my job interviews, yep I said it 2 interviews in one day.
Take that! 
Can you believe this is a real sunset that has not been altered at all?
Amazing!

One Crazy Weekend

This weekend turned out to be a little crazy.  Grant went to work on Saturday to help out a friend fix their stairs and next thing I know I get a call saying he has cracked his wind shield with the wood somehow.  So we spent the afternoon getting his window fixed.  After the window we went to the Verizon store to look for phones because in all the confusion about the window he dropped his phone and stood on it, so now its not working very well.  Since I don't want to spend a bunch of money on a phone that will probably get ruined very quickly we are waiting till we can find one for free or cheap.

Sunday, mid morning rolls around and Grant decides to pick me up and body slam me into the bed and the next thing we know my mom's 100 year old bed breaks!  So again Grant spends the afternoon gluing and reattaching the bed together!

I got a lot done this weekend thanks to some free material from my cousin Lacey!
I covered 2 pillows and my office chair in some soft zebra material and it came out great. 
Before: 
After: 
I can't wait to see how everything is going to look in our new place.

Beauty Blog

I would like to introduce all of you to:

Mandy is a freelance make-up artist who is currently starting her own business.  She has worked at an eyebrow studio for years shaping eyebrows and doing permanent make-up, but now she is starting her own make-up business where she travels to any Southern California destination to make you beautiful!

I find her blog super interesting because she does great before and afters and she also has a tip of the week, where she shares a beauty secret with all of us followers.

Last Year Same Day

One thing I really like about having a blog is I can go back in time and see exactly what I was doing that same day the year before.  Last year on January 18, 2011, I posted about our last weekend spent in the north of New Zealand at Grant's family beach house and about how I had just stared a new job.  Read more about a year ago here, if you want.

Today exactly one year later:
  • I woke up in CA (where we live now)
  • My car did not start again (its been not starting on and off)
  • After jump starting the car we drove to get it fixed
  • We stopped by my Grandpa's shop to say hi
  • I went on a job interview
  • We drove and picked up my car (now its fixed!)
  • I got home starving but decided to wait till Grant got home so we could eat together
  • Since the day is not done I plan to still get some stuff together for immigration and work on painting my little side table for our new place
Only 7 Days till the big move...
