Home Hunting: What’s important to you?

My next adventure? Looking for a new place to live with Paul.  The apartment we have now is fine, but we want a little more room for visitors.  I’ve been through this chore, but never with a significant other.  I have to remember to ask him what he thinks about a place. But there are a few things everyone should… Read more »

My Furniture Obsession or Why I Love IKEA

Have you ever noticed the smell of furniture from IKEA?  It’s there. Maybe it’s the scent of Swedish meatballs combined with particleboard that makes me want to buy build it yourself furniture.  Or maybe it’s genetic.  As I’ve previously stated,  pretty well known fact that the women in my family have this thing with rearranging the furniture in their houses. … Read more »

Since I’m currently seeking employment, I don’t have a regular daytime routine.  Also, since I recently moved across two time zones and into a place with my boyfriend, I have quite a bit to get used to…many changes happened over the last week.  Not to mention that thing in Wyoming… The weather might be contributing to my confusion too.  It’s… Read more »

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 5 – South Dakota & Home

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 3 & 4 – Wyoming, Again!

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 2 – Wyoming

We woke up to a cold, snowy morning in Salt Lake City.  A text message from my friend in Laramie was beeping.  I’m so thankful for Christi.  She kept me and Paul updated on road conditions and survival tips.  Apparently, traversing I-80 during a snowstorm isn’t a smart idea.  Of course, we waited until mid-April thinking such weather events would… Read more »

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day One

      No Comments on Road Trip to Minnesota: Day One

Anyone who has ever moved as an adult hates packing.  Even though I purged and purged, I was still forced to leave crap behind in California.  The essentials, sadly not including wine, were all that would fit into my Beetle. In a frenzy, I had to decide what was needed (clothes for job interviews) and what could wait, (wine, fancy… Read more »
