Hi! Thanks to Cheryl for letting me guest post today. Cheryl and I have known each other since I was five or so years old. I actually remember being seven, she was sixteen, and they had let me come to a dinner with them after one of their high school football games. I ended up losing my tooth at the dinner table (embarrassing to say the least). There they are talking about how homecoming is coming up and I lose a tooth at the dinner table. Shows you the slight 8 1/2 year age difference we have. Ha. She is BFF with my cousin (who is more like my sister) and once she stopped babysitting for me and my brothers we became friends!
Anyways, I'd like to give you a little background of what the end of the summer has been like for me... I moved!
The month of August was a whirlwind. I got offered a job in Orlando (I'm from St.Pete, Fl) right before I left to go on a family vacation in The Florida Keys. Of course my first thought was, "YAY! New job!" Yay then turned into, "Where the heck am I going to live?!" Which is a very valid question if you ask me.
While searching for Orlando Apartments I realized it was not an easy task. I found my apartment back in college because it was, as friends had told me, "The place to live!" "Oh, they have the best pool parties!" What they didn't tell me was how at night it was semi-sketchy and the pool parties? Every Saturday. Don't get me wrong, I love pool parties, but not every.single.weekend. Sometimes I like a little afternoon nap which was next to impossible with blaring rap music outside my window. Funny how you learn as you get older what you like and don't like and how those preferences change.
I ended up finding the perfect apartment and am thrilled to show you all how the decorating is going as I adjust to a new city, new job and new living situation. Here's a sneak peek:
Thanks Cheryl for letting me share my recent moving experience! I'll be back soon to show you the rest of my "Pinterest inspired" apartment. I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
