One Year Older...

Dearest somewhat organized a little b-day thing for me. Very last minute, but at least he tried. Still, I had a great time seeing all my friends- even the ones from SF. :) I feel old. 22 was always a milestone age in my mind- graduating from college, finding a job, being independent. So I'm mostly there, but it's still freaking me out a bit. It's sort of a wake up call- Hey, you're not a kid anymore. You're about to graduate, you've got two to support (no, not a baby- me and Dearest!), and you're getting married soon. Crazy!

Classes have been... going. Five weeks left of this quarter and then five weeks of summer school. July 24th, here I come! Funny, Dearest and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary the next day. I can't believe that 2 years have gone by already. Hopefully the next 4 years of Dearest's school will go by just as fast. Hopefully.

In other news, come July I'll have to quit my nanny job to find a full time job (gotta pay the bills somehow). So if anyone is up for watching an adorable 2.5 year old about 3 times a week in the afternoon, let me know. She's incredibly cute and fun to play with. She's a bit loud and adventurous, but she'll really make you love your job.

We're currently looking at a new place to live. It's a bit smaller than our current space, but everything is BRAND NEW! Brand new carpet, paint, whirlpool tub, "his/her" double sinks... The best part is the amazing kitchen with granite counter tops, new stove- finally gas again! There's a huge wrap around deck that's ideal for BBQs and entertaining. We're not sure if we'll get the place yet, though. I just can't wait to be out of construction hell. :(

So, lots has happened! First off, Dearest and I got engaged! We just started the planning process and it's quite fun. We've found our ceremony and reception venue, but all i'll say is that it's beautiful! Hey, I have to leave something a surprise. :P

I'm almost done with school- just this quarter and then 5 weeks of summer school! I'm SO excited! Possibly more about this than getting married, but don't tell Dearest. ;) It seems surreal that I'm going to be a college grad soon!

3 months to go- til we move! We love this apartment and it's really a great place to live, but we can't stand the construction that's going on and the parking situation. Hopefully our next place will be a lot better!
