hello march..

Hi friends..

Since its the beginning of a new month i thought i'd do a catch up/fill-you-in post.. i've been a whole lot busier since moving here (like i actually go places now.. and have things to do.. and people to hang out with.. its nice!) but the reason posting has been light around here is because i don't have hardly any of my stuff here. When i moved it was just me, our cat and a couple suitcases. So I have no ingredients to bake with (i guess i could buy some.. but i haven't) and no craft room to DIY in.. ect. so bare with me as i post about non-sense for the next few weeks/months.. until our stuff gets here.

In the mean time, this is whats new with me…

-I haven't seen josh in 6 weeks. but i'll finally get to on march 10 ..for a few days. then he'll be off again for another couple months. is this hard? extremely. but we talk/text/video chat constantly which makes it a little easier.. and also, staying busy and hanging out with friends helps.(so if you live in the area, get a hold of me.. and let hang out!)
skype
(scary eyes)

-i got a job!! i'll be working full-time as a hair stylist starting march 14. i'm VERY excited.. answered prayers!

-we hit a snag or two in the house buying process. wont get into details but it made for a very discouraging and emotional week (last week).. thankfully, my husband stayed positive while i wallowed and it looks like everything will work out just fine again! we're just doing what we can and letting God handle the rest.. and we'll be happy with the outcome either way.

-on a lighter note, i've become obsessed with frozen yogurt with mochi. my favorite flavors are pistachio, coffee and plain tart.
froyo with mochi... all the time

-and last but not least, i should have my etsy shop open later this month. It has definitely taken me longer than expected! I'll be starting out with an apron i designed (7 colors/patterns to choose from) and a few handmade knit things.. and possibly a few vintage items (housewares, dresses) thrown in there.



and some photos from the past couple weeks..

Here's to a positive and productive month!

  3. It's sweet that you keep us updated. I was wondering how things were going. That Frozen yogurt looks AMAZING! I loved all the photos from the last couple weeks. They're so cute! I totally agree with the best condiment one - I love that stuff.


    On a side note: I really like the new title...It fits you and this blog perfectly!

  5. Lovely pictures. Adjusting can be very hard but it is all about the process in the end.

    Cheers!

  6. from one wife of a musician to another - i totally feel your pain. i don't know what we'd do without skype or face time. even though mine is off the road for the moment...studio time always creeps into our time.

    sounds like he's home for a break soon - enjoy the heck out of it!!!

  8. i really like your blog, cause it's really an inspiration to me, particulary how you enjoy the little and beatiful things in life. and for me it's also reconstructive (?don't know, if this is the right word?), when you say things like "lettin god handle the rest" -that phrase reminded me of this truth. lovely greetings from dresden/germany..steph

  13. My hubby use to drive tour buses. It's tough. I think it's worse than being a musician on the road, after a tour he just moves on to the next. I feel your pain! I'm glad that he doesn't do it anymore. I do miss meeting cool people, especially the movie stars, lol. I've made some great friends though that I get to see once a year when they come through town. ;)

  15. i'm SO glad i discovered your blog! i'm new to this vegan-thing (i've been a vegetarian for almost a year, but decided to kick it up a notch.) at the risk of sounding creepy, you've been helping me decide what to eat for the last few days :)
    oh and i was really glad to see that you take daily pictures for your husband, whenever my boyfriend (of four years) and i are apart that's something we do! i definitely felt less cheesy.
