Vacation. Was. Awesome.
9 days in a row of not having to commute to Washington or shower everyday or deal with other people’s financial problems. My sister’s visit was wonderful. We packed a LOT of things into the 2 full days she was here. We ate lots of good food, went to the Oregon Zoo, went to Multnomah Falls, walked around a couple different unique neighborhoods in Portland, and caught up on all the details of our crazy lives. I can’t wait to meet my little niece or nephew in August, that’s for sure.
Even though work has been a bit of a nightmare since I’ve gone back, I’m happy to have some routine again. I guess if I wasn’t stressed out from a hectic day at the credit union, I would probably be at home bored, right? I’ll keep telling myself that at least.
On a more positive note, I have some new loves in my life that I would like to share.
1. Desperate Housewives. I know, I know…I thought the same thing. But I tell the truth when I say it’s actually a great show.
2. Velvet Elvis. I’m hopping on the Rob Bell train just when everyone else is getting off! Hah!
3. Our new oven. Our cute little 50’s style stove/oven bit the dust this week so our landlord had a pretty new stainless steel one delivered Wednesday. It’s amazing to have 4 working burners and an oven that cooks food evenly. So thankful!
It’s so exciting that in about 2 weeks I’ll be back in the ATL for a few days. I can’t wait to see TWO of my favorite people get married while I’m in town. It will be one crazy week. I’ve been craving some chickfila, steak n shake, mexican food, waffle house, and many others that cease to exist in this part of the world. Obesity here I come!
