Here it is from the beginning...
In December, I got to spend a lot of time with my mom and Brother Michael who came up for my graduation. They finally got to see Idaho (excluding the fact that Michael's already been there), and my mom got to see what I've been doing for the past 4 1/2 years!!!So after I graduated, I came home to Missouri and spent some wonderful time with some people I love...Especially my boyfriend Sean who came and spent about a week with me....
On the way home, we got to stop and see my adorable nephew and niece, Chloe and Eli...
Afterwards I went to Florida and surprised Ashlee (my sister) and spent time with her, Gavin, Jon, and my littlest bro, who's not so little, Johnathan.
I also got to see my other sister Stephanie, her husband Wes, and their baby Kaleb. It was so much fun! I had a great time!
We went to the beach and swam in the Atlantic....and pick fresh oranges right off the tree! They were the best I'd ever eaten...
We also went to Disney's Animal Kingdom, MGM (Hollywood Studios), and the Magic Kingdom.
I loved it! I really love Florida!
This is me on one of the rides at the Animal Kingdom...LOL
I'm doing so great! I had a hard time my first few days getting here and adjusting to everything by myself, but I guess you could say now I've gotten in the flow of things. I really love it. I need to know where those shops are with really cheap clothing...I'm so out of fashion here. Seriously.
Officially graduating is kind of a big deal, except for the fact I feel so small and so young out here. It's good but crazy.
I am working for Coltrin and Associates. I haven't really had much to do since I've been here--there are no projects right now. I've just been reading and reading, sleeping and sleeping. It's kind of relaxing though.
I moved out here last Thursday. I flew into JFK and took my first ride in a taxi. My mom was really paranoid but my driver was so kind. Taxi drivers know their stuff though. They are pushy and crazy, but surprisingly I felt safe the whole time. I almost missed the city skyline because I was looking out of a different window of the cab...it was so great when I did see it though. It really did look just like the pictures.
I'm living in
I met my roomies when I first got there. There was only one and the other came last night. They are leaving at the end of the month and I will be too. The lease is ending so I think I'm moving to
The single's ward is great. The people are all so so friendly. I forgot that everyone goes to NY to make it big, so there's a
It's such a fun city. I can't believe how many people there actually are, but it's awesome. Always tons on the street. I love that everyone walks everywhere. I have a subway station right by my work, but I figured I need the exercise so I walk 6 blocks to one corner of
I'm here until May...depending on how much I love it.
I'll probably be coming back to Rexburg because...
Well, Sean and I are getting MARRIED!!!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Crazy!!! I'm so excited...it's not official but will be when I come back. It will probably be in July in
