New Stuff

Lets play catch up! Some cool new things are happenin’ over here and I feel like I should share. You guys like knowing about my life, right? RIGHT?!

I can’t remember if I told you guys or not, but we saved up our precious dollars and bought a couch. Since Paul and I didn’t live together before we got married, we didn’t have a lot of furniture to our name. We got a lot of hand-me-downs, thanks to our parents, and kind of pieced things together. Now, don’t get me wrong. We were very lucky that Paul’s mom had an extra couch laying around for us. BUT it was purchased in 1976 and had a floral pattern with a green background. ‘Nuff said. The cushions were pretty shot. But it was a good friend. We were sad to say goodbye to it. And by we, I mean Paul and his mom. Our new couch is lush and cozy and easy on my sensitive eyes. With the down feathers sewn perfectly into place, the cushions are a paradise for my butt. Life is looking up.

I haven't moved since it arrived.

Easter candy is taking over my life. We some how acquired a massive amount of candy. Paul’s family had an Easter egg hunt. I hadn’t gone on a hunt for candy since I was 11. The child in me came out in full force and I became very competitive. I guess I realized that finding food was one thing that I was good at, so I might as well give it my all. Between us, Paul and I got quite a haul. Today for some reason, we decided to peruse the grocery stores for discounted Easter candy. Let’s just say, I won’t be bathing suit ready for a while…

Cherry blossom trees are everywhere! I feel like I’m in heaven. No one told me that cherry blossom trees would line the streets here! I feel like I’m in a Dr. Seuss book that takes place in heaven. They’re so luscious and full. It’s crazy how trees can put you in a good mood. It’s the little things in life, really.

There is no way you can deny their beauty! Taken outside my apt.

Also, I dyed my hair! Nothing too crazy, but enough of a change that I feel different. Not many people have noticed. So I guess that’s good? I have a very ashy brown/blonde natural color. It’s almost honey color in certain light. I think Paul and I managed to find a perfect match to what my natural color would be if my hair was virginal. It’s weird having your hair match your eyebrows! Also, I feel very low-maintenance now. So yay for changes! Who knows, maybe I’ll go darker someday?
