A new, beautiful year

It's been a while since I posted, which I've posted about, but now I'm serious about getting this blog going. I finally bought a new computer, so I can finally type in an efficient manner. No more posts from the iPhone.

My thought for today:

It has been one year since I moved back to Phoenix. It has been an incredible year with very little downs, if any, and so many wonderful moments. I interviewed for a job a week before I moved and I got it. Then I got a promotion and raise after a few months! I moved here with my then-boyfriend, being somewhat miserable as I had been in that relationship for a while. But, I hid it well and tried my best. We rode it out, tried to fake a good relationship and finally broke up in June. That is a whole other story. It was hard for a few days, but I got over it pretty quickly, but I had been over it for a while. It really was a happy moment. So, starting after the break up, I started to change things. My best friend and I (the reason I moved to Phoenix the first time four years ago) started having weekly dinner dates. I bought some new clothes that I felt really confident in. I started volunteering with homeless children. I went on On Match, I met my boyfriend Nick. I never expected anything to happen but then I met him and he was this breath of incredible fresh air. It was soon after the breakup but I would have been stupid not to go out with him. Then I started thinking about buying a house. Then I found my beautiful house. I bought it, which was stressful, but now here I am, typing this in my beautiful house. It has been a wonderful year and I think this one will be just as amazing, if not more so. I get to spend the whole year with my lovely Nick and I have never been so comfortable and confident in a relationship. I still have my dinner dates with Jessica and we are doing Lifetime movie nights with one of my friends form high school who lives here now. Phoenix was one of the best choices I have made. My life has come together and I feel like I'm at home.

Life is good.

Here it is!!!

I am so proud of my costume. I wasn't sure about it at first but I think it looks really great! I'm not super crafty so this is a big deal for me. Yay!

Also, I love Nick's dinosaur pajamas.

Just some more....

Here's some more pics of nick and I (and others) being silly....

Here it is.....

The costume finally happened. Here it is!!!! Thanks to nick for taking the picture (and throwing the party).

Tonight's the night.

Nick and I have been dating for a few months now and tonight I meet the parents and brothers. It's been a while since I've had to meet parents (and then they didn't live in state so I never saw them anyway). Nick's parents live in state, hell same general area so it better go well. At least I look cute. I should have taken a picture of my outfit. Maybe later. But I look very Parisian. Black and white striped dress and red flats. I have to leave straight from work so hopefully I won't be too disheveled. I will leave you with a picture of my dog being adorable.

Another part of the costume.

My leggings came today. They are from PandaChunk's store on etsy. I think I'm going to wear them inside out. The color is a bit duller, which I like. I can't wait to finish this up!

Saturday night

Nick and I did scary movie Saturday last night and watched the ring, psycho and alien. We also had a bunch of margaritas and tacos and all kinds of fun beer. Dexter couldn't help but cuddle. Or maybe he wanted my beer.
