- looking forward -

I'm really looking forward to the future.

Right now everything is looking good down the road, hopefully I don't happen to take some wrong turn or wined up facing some bump in the road! I'm super excited because I'm inching closer to September. Since my return in May,  I have been staying in my dads apartment, and let's just say, going from having your own space, to living with two other males is not ideal. But as I said, Septembers getting closer and that's when I am suppose to be getting an apartment with my sister if she sticks to the plan. If not I will be living alone again, which I actually enjoy because hey, I can walk right out of the shower to get something to drink and not have to worry about getting dressed.

I really miss having my own place, I have only had a "roommate" one time, and it wasn't too bad. I really just miss decorating my place. When I was 19 I got my first place and I immediately hit up IKEA and bought all my furniture. It was so nice to be able to keep things the way I wanted them and decorate exactly how I wanted. I tend to move things around a lot, I must've got that from my grandmother, always redecorating.

Not only do I look forward to decorating, but I will have SO much space to create. I don't have all my belongings, most of it sits in storage and it's hard to be without them, but once I get that back I will have so much time to DIY and share so much of my decorating tips. Right now I lack the space and materials to be as creative as I can be, so once I get my apartment, there is no holding back, and I will be able to share my journey through it with all of you guys.

Another thing I am looking forward to is finally accomplishing something I have been needing to get done for so long which will enable me to do SO MUCH MORE. I also will be able to go back to school and I can't wait!

And the icing on the cake is my boyfriend will be finishing up his enlistment in the USMC in November. It's about 5 months earlier from when he was originally suppose to get out and I am so excited yet nervous at the same time. I can't wait till he is here and I won't have to wait around for him anymore, we will be able to share more life experiences together and support each other through school.We had a pretty good talk last night that helped eased the stress of trying to accomplish a lot more from now until November. I'm so glad they picked November, we can end it with the Marine Corps Ball and his birthday is at the end of the month, and we can spend the Holidays together. The excitement is building up and I hope these months breeze by quickly because I am looking forward to so much.

We always joked around about what he would do if the world was ending like they say it is and I was in Texas and he was 19 hours away from me and 38 hours away from his family. Now I no longer have to worry because if he gets out in November that's still a whole month before the Zombie Apocalypse hah!

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by.


  1. Aw so many good things on the way! I'm so very excited for you :)
