Fun in the sun =]

Well, today was the first day that wasn't focused on the new place.  My mom and I went to explore Ft. Myers Beach.  It was a nice, HOT day at the beach and I came away with a little sun burn... BUT this will turn into a great tan!  A "gulf" beach is so different then an "ocean" beach.  The sand is different, the water is different... 

The only bummer is... I CANNOT find my after sun lotion!! =O It is packed away somewhere in boxland. =/ lame.  There was a family on vacation sitting kinda close to us at the beach today and hearing some of their conversations were pretty funny.  The son brought his (or another member of the family's) cell phone into the water (where is got wet... DUH!) and proceeded to ask him mom for some rice to let it dry in...?? Like to totally excepted his mom to have a random bag of rice at the beach.  Also, the daughters didn't know the name of "some surfing clothing company", where I was like "Roxy, Quicksilver, Billabong, Hurley..."  

After the beach, Mom and I came back home and fell asleep.  A day in the sun ALWAYS drains all the energy out of me.  After awaking up on the couch, I realize that I need to finish unpacking my closet... =/  I didn't realize how much CRAP the movers packed that I told them not to... Fail.

I also need to find a way to organize all my OPI nail polishes. So I need some pointers =]

That is all for now!

  • I finally unpacked my Wii today, so I can hook up my Netflix! YAY
  • I am really excited to the Real Housewives of Orange County Reunion show tomorrow =]

Holy CRAP!

HOLY CRAP! This week has been INSANE!  The hubby and I have officially moved to the west coast of FL.  My sense of direction is so thrown off (My "east" is now my "west" and I'm so confused).  However, I can find my way to the Bell Tower and Coconut Point malls, so I think I'll be okay! =D

Anyways, on to our biggest change... OUR NEW PLACE!! AHH It's so exciting.  Chris and I have been together for over 6 years now, married for a little over a year, and for all that time we never really lived alone.  It's exciting to have a place that is just for the two of us to do what we want in and just be.  We are renting a 3br 2 1/2 bath townhouse.  (I get my daily workout running up and down stairs a million times a day.)  Our first night here was on Thursday, with the moving truck coming Friday morning, so it has been organize/putting away nonstop since about 9:30 am Friday.  We have actually gotten A LOT accomplished.  Our kitchen (except we need a trash can and maybe a few more decorative thingys) is completely unpacked, cleaned, and put away.  And we put together our new family room!



I have to say, I think our family room looks really good after 48 hours!  Chris and I have been looking for a rug to put under the coffee table to break up the tile downstairs.  

I will most definitively add more pictures as rooms are organized enough so I'm not embarrassed. =]  I am covered in bruises and my body is sore from moving/unloading boxes.  But I want all the boxes emptied out so I can break them down and have more space to move around.

Night Y'all!

Oh the joys of packing... =/

     So, the movers were supposed to come to the house today to pack up all our things and put them in the  moving van... truck... whatever.  BUT they now moved it to tomorrow.  On the plus side of this it gives me an extra day to gather our things and the items I'll need for the couple days we are still in Melbourne.  I've never had professional movers move my stuff, so I don't quite know what to expect.  And they are also coming WAY to early in the morning ( I am NOT a morning person).

     Yesterday, Chris and I went our to Ulta because they are having a great sale on select liter shampoo and conditioner.  I was so UNHAPPY with my current Joico shampoo and conditioner, that I couldn't even finish the bottles. Yuck.  I would come out of the shower with my hair feeling like straw.  So, in a search for some new hair products I decided on Healthy Sexy Hair.

     I have the Healthy Sexy Hair leave-in conditioner and I LOVE it.  I've only used the shampoo and conditioner once but it was already 10x better than that Joico stuff, so I'm not complaining.

    Well, I must return to numbering my shoe boxes so I know if one gets stolen! (I have my priorities in order!)  Hope everyone has a happy and safe Independence Day!
