Happy 2012! As promised, I'm about to life update everyone with what feels like an entirely new life. First things first, I got a new job! I graduated with my MA in Counseling back in 2009 (5 days before I gave birth with Brooke) and haven't been able to find a counseling job since then. Instead, I took a marketing job which I am NOT quitting, but keeping as a part-time job since my new job is as a half-time counselor at a small elementary school. I thought my mouth was going to burst from smiling when I was hired.
Next, we bought a (town)house! We are so extremely excited to own a little place in Hawaii that we can completely re-do. It's an older townhouse and really outdated, but in good condition. I am sad to be leaving the gorgeous house we rent-- B took her first steps here and I watched her grow from a little lump on a log to a running, jumping and talking little girl-- but at the same time so very excited for this new chapter in our life.
Here it is! These are old pictures but being the noob I am, I didn't take pictures at the house inspection...
Living room. There are mirrors EVERYWHERE in this house! It's borderline creepy. We plan to remove these mirrors, change the floors and paint the walls
Dining area/stairs.. we plan to take that hideous white ... thing off of the stairs and change the floors.
Kitchen .. not bad. Will change the floors, but the rest can wait for later. So excited to finally have a dishwasher!
Master bedroom.. totally in love with the fact that we'll have a balcony!
And that's it! (For now) Can't wait to see what else 2012 has in store for us...
