So Happy.

Just found out that I (finally) have a job. I will be nannying again, this time for a beautiful family twenty minutes away. I have been looking for and stressing out over finding a job for so long now and it just feels good to finally relax. I am actually very excited that this family found me and can't wait to get things started with them in July. Things are really looking up!

It's been incredibly hot here lately, today it is going to be 98 degrees with the heat index reaching 111. Luckily I can just stay in today and hopefully get my computer fixed (something I have been talking about doing for so long now).

G and I are both super excited that this week is over and we get a weekend together. My mom and sister Karli are flying in this Thursday so this weekend we'll most likely be cleaning and getting things ready for their twelve day stay with us. I'd like to go to the farmer's market downtown as well.

Happy Friday!

Lightning Cats.

Last night we had the most beautiful thunderstorm I have ever seen. The lightning was non-stop for about 45 minutes with mild thunder. I love feeling so safe and comfortable inside our new home together.


Thunder and lightning always makes cat pretty crazy and it's fun to watch her run her energy off in our new large sized apartment. Lately she's been hitting this bottle cap around the house, hockey style.

Sunny Savannah.

It's 90 degrees and humid like crazy outside right now. You'd think it would be cooler in our house, but since I'm trying to save money I haven't turned on the AC and so it is 85 in here. I keep sticking my head in the freezer and drinking cold water with lots of lemons. It might be helping a little.

Yesterday G and I walked to the park and played tennis. We're getting much better and can actually hit the ball back and forth without flinging it too far off the court. You should really see the sweat rolling off of us after just ahalf an hour of tennis here.

I'm thinking this summer is going to be one of the hottest I've experienced in a long, long time. You can all send me Gatorade when you get the chance.

Thank You!



Thanks to my wonderful family, we get to look at these everyday. Such pretty colors and they smell amazing. I love you guys so much.

Adjusting.


I haven't written much of anything lately, mostly because we've been so busy. G started his first week at Job:Real last Monday and we are both trying to adjust to his new schedule. Actually I have had to do no real adjusting of my own so far because unfortunately, I still do not have a job. Who would have known it was going to be so difficult to find work down here? Probably something I should have considered before pursuing an English Literature degree.

I'm still waiting to here from Armstrong State here, hoping they have some room left for me in their teeny-tiny teaching program. During the days, I drive to preschool after preschool filling out applications and talking my previous work experiences up like crazy. After a few hours of driving, I head home and Cat and I spend the after-lunch portion of our day reading, cleaning, and re-loading the Craigslist job page every five minutes. Pretty exciting.

There is some fun/weird news I am just dying to share, but for those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, it will just have to wait. Keep posted!!

Thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, love, and gifts. I felt like the luckiest girl on the planet and truly am because I am surrounded by lots of amazing friends and family. Thanks to wonderful G, my mom and little sister Karli are coming out here at the end of the month for TWELVE WHOLE DAYS!! Their company will be much needed.

Things are slowing down for a bit (G was telling me today that here, everyone says "for a song" instead of "for a little bit/short time" :-) and so I will hopefully be posting more this week.

Hope you all have a great Monday!

Big Bugs and New Jobs.

So, remember when I was saying that there are really gross bugs the size of a dime down here in Savannah? I am proud to say that they don't really bother me anymore because now I'm just worried about bumping into this guy's friends:


G started his new job this morning at 8:15. Look how fancy he is now!


This was G leaving for his interview in March. This must be his signature pose:
