I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t had any time to blog with working over 40 hours a week, going to the gym, hanging out with John, and more!
Two weeks ago, John and I moved about 10 to 15 minutes down the road to a much bigger space. We went from a small apartment to a good size townhouse with two bedrooms, two floors, laundry in the kitchen, off street parking, and wood floors. Both places have laundry in the unit which I like, and the laundry machine in the small apartment was bigger. Both the new and old places have off street parking, laundry in the unit, hardwood floors, and are in the same town which I like as well. My new place is about 15 minutes closer to work which is always very help on busy traffic mornings and evenings.
In our new place, we have a bigger patio and are allowed to keep Kayaks, bikes, a gas grill outside, and more where as the old apartment would not allow that.
I’m really happy with the new place as it is bigger and surprisingly less money than the small apartment. The small apartment did have a pool nearby as well as a small gym, which we belonged to, and had to pay extra for.
Our new place is a month to month lease and we do not plan on leaving any time soon. We looked at over 20 places in a few weeks and did not find anything like it for our budget.
This weekend Recap –
Friday began with work and then I met with my parents at the new apartment that me and John are renting. They brought over the Rum that we got from Cayman Islands (see previous post) to give to our friends Elex and Diego at their wedding (that happened yesterday). They brought over my snow tires as well which John will be putting on this week since he is a mechanic. We both work for the same company in the auto instrustry and do complete opposed jobs.
My parents and I went out to a Thai Cuisine in the center of town where we met with John after work as well. We ordered a variety of dishes that were all shared, and had a good time chatting.
After the restaurant, we went back to the apartment and chatted for at least a good hour before my parents headed back to New York at their house.
We decided to call it a night and go to sleep as we work six days a week and were ready to end the day.
Saturday mornings I am usually up early to head off to work, however on this special day 12/13/14 our friends Elex and Diego were getting married. I began the day with some yoga and stretching and we then went to a hair salon where our friend does a wonderful job on both of our hair. I am very impressed with how lovely Linda and Angela curled it. They easily blow dried my hair straight (it’s naturally curly) and then curled it with a curling iron. The last time I had my hair like this was at my sister’s wedding three years ago!
We then went back to the apartment and got ready to head out for the wedding for the weekend. We arrived at 3 pm and the wedding ceremony began at 4 pm.
Below was me right before the ceremony took place –
After the ceremony, we went to the party where we danced the night away and chatted away. We did the electric slide, the cha cha, and danced to music from the 80’s the most recent music. We then all stayed over at the Best Western Hotel and met up the next morning.

Lots of fun and I look forward to seeing everyone that was there again for possibly new years!
Sunday began with branch with the newlyweds, bridesmaids, groomsmen and more. The couple was happy with their wedding ceremony, party, and gifts. I’m so happy for them and wish them the best of luck!
John and I said our goodbyes and headed home where we got ready to go to the gym, lenscrafters to get me a new pair of glasses, and the mall where we went to the apple store for a couple of hours to fix an itunes problem. It now works and I can buy music again. Yay!
We then went back to our place where we had homemade chicken with salad and later we relaxed on the couch and had some popcorn.
Look forward to hearing from you!
