Getting Into The Groove of Things

It’s been a while since I’ve updated everyone. I haven’t been able to post anything on my blog yet. It’s really hard to blog on my phone. I’ll be buying a tablet this weekend to hold me over until I get a new laptop. (If y’all have any suggestions on what to get, that’d be great! — looking into iPads & the Microsoft surface thing. Haha)
I’ve been here almost a whole month! It’s so insane to think about. Time really has flown by & I really enjoy it here. I’ve met lots of amazing people & have already made some friends that I hangout with. Everything has just been so good. I’m so happy & I’m excited about each & every day here.


No, I am not super tan yet…no cute tan lines, more like a farmers tan from the many walks I take every day with the kids. I haven’t been to the beach since my mom was here. I’m really hoping that will change soon, now that I’ve gotten myself adjusted & have people to hangout with.

I’m still trying to find my go-to Japanese place to eat here, since there isn’t a Fuji. My favorite place to hangout is the mall just 10 mins down the road. I love just walking around, even if I don’t buy anything.


Work & living with the family I work with has been so nice. It’s nice that I work where I live because I don’t have to get up an hour or so early to get ready and leave. The family & I get a long great. Finally found my groove with the kids & everything has been going smoothly, especially nap time now. I love snuggles from the 7 month old & the 2 year old is attached to my hip most of the day. She’s my best bud. She comes into my room 20 times a day. She loves being with me when I get ready in the mornings or when I’m getting ready to go somewhere. She watches me as I do my hair & makeup & loves it when I pretend to put deodorant on her & do her makeup. She does get into my stuff a lot…that’s going to take some getting used to. She took my shoes that I was going to wear the other day & threw them out the door as I was getting ready to leave for sports night…then went to go picked them up to give them to me & tried to hide them instead. Haha. This is definitely great practice for when I have my own kids someday, that’s for sure!
