All Settled

So the boy and I headed down here to Irving Texas (just a sneeze outside of Dallas) last Monday/Tuesday, and we are pretty well settled in at this point. Only a few small messes to straighten up, some walls to paint (I already have my colors ready to go!) and some art to hang. When it's completely finished I'll have pics to post, before and after. When I look at the mess of the before pics now, I can't believe what a mess this place was. We could barely walk around. Now with everything in it's place there's actually a good amount of space in this one bedroom apartment! And we LOVE it here! We are literally right around the corner from absolutely everything. A ridiculous abundance of  restaurants and stores and a huge mall. Soooo much stuff we didn't have in Richmond Kentucky. And if we drive into Dallas (not quite brave enough yet, haha) there's galleries and the museum, a huuuuge three story mall (if we ever have money) and so on and so on. Or if we just wanna stay around home we are right next to one of our complexes three pools. :D We've been utilizing that as often as possible, haha.
I know when school starts up at the end of August, and when we get some part time jobs we will be really busy, but we're gonna freakin love it. 
Pics soon!

One Week Away

Yesterday was Seth and I's last day as jewelers for Tiffany's. It has been by far the best job I've ever had, and I will miss it, and my coworkers a great deal. But now I get to move on to even bigger and better things for myself. It's time to start packing and head from Kentucky to Dallas. :)

No I'm not going to a Cowboys game, don't ask.
We have a great little apartment already waiting for us just 6 miles from campus (oh man, the gas money we will save compared to driving 60 miles a day!) and both of us get to start work on our MFA doing what we love. And it's a full ride for both of us, well over $40,000 a piece, paid for. A year ago today I would have never seen this coming. *heart aspload*
I'm going to miss my good friends so much, but as for Kentucky, I can not wait to get out of here. Neither one of us can.
Time to purge and box up this apartment!
