So here's what we've been up to!
-We found a really awesome duplex to rent-- it's on the water, we can dock the boats, the landlords seem to be really nice-- AND they decided to pop in on us last night. BUT, I think we passed their "home inspection" so now were onto the financials, and we might just get the place of our dreams(to rent).
(They wanted to make sure our cats didn't stink up our current place.)
Florida living at its finest?
I think yes.Rob has been referring to this property as "Paradise," I hope we get it!
-We're back to planning a wedding. I think we've been going back and forth so much on the reception part of the wedding day is because we are both
I am most comfortable as the dutiful hostess. I like to make sure everyone is drinking heavily & well fed so they won't notice how awkward I actually am.
We just need to get over it. We are just weirdos, but we are also excited now that we have some actual plans hammered out. R even picked out a few dresses he liked-- I'm gonna have to get real skinny! Of course he likes all the fitted dresses.
(I am still having a hard time with the white dress thing-- but I am warming up to at least trying some on.)
-I finally decided what I wanted to try to sell on my etsy shop. A few months ago I mentioned wanting to open shop, but I had so many ideas at the time-- it was hard to get started since I had nothing really to focus on, but I came up with some good ideas, I am going to do a little trial run with my friends and see what happens!
Here's a hint: It has something to do with being clean & green.
-Speaking of being clean and green, I wanted to mention that I am still using baking soda & lemon juice to wash & "condition" my hair. Besides needing a trim, my hair looks awesome!
I am going to get my hair cut in May (mostly because I refuse to get my hair hacked again by the lack of talent locally) by my hair dresser who has been cutting my hair since I was 14-- SO I want to see what she has to say about the condition of my baking soda washed hair, and then I will do an official update.
So far I have turned a bunch of my friends/family on to this, and they are happy too!
-Rob wants to go hydro. Hydroponics that is. We've been designing some systems so we can have a hydroponic garden at the new place. We want to keep growing peppers and tomatoes and cooking herbs, and we want to start growing lettuces, squash and I would like to make some ficus bonsai's.
We don't know much about hydroponics and I know almost nothing about bonsai-- so we'll see how it goes!
Hydroponics is like an awesome science experiment that feeds you! So much goes into it, we think it will be much more productive than our current soil based garden.
Tonight we are going home to Orlando (just for a few hours) to have dinner with R's family. The exciting thing about dinner is I will be meeting a cousin that I have never met before. Rob has a pretty tiny family (there are only 7 of them locally!) so meeting ANY of the out towners is always a treat.
I come from a large family-- so while large can translate as highly dysfunctional-- I wouldn't trade any of them in. However, I would trade in a few of my Christmas experiences for some of R's-- I am sure his have historically been much more pleasant!
The second exciting this about this is, we are going to a restaurant in our home town that I remember always wanting to go to as a little girl-- but to this day I still haven't been! I am a food freak, so ya know I will have a good time. :)
AND that's it, regularly programed blogging shall return eventually/soon.
