We’ve finally made it to California, and I haven’t quite settled into a routine. It’s the holidays, and my new home doesn’t feel completely moved into yet…
Blogging (my favorite pass time) has turned into a chore on top of everything else that’s going on… and I hate that! So I’m using this time as we transition to California living… to repost older entries from my previous blog.
….. Required to save my blogging sanity 😉
So lets travel back in time again 2 years… Steven and I had been married for just a few months, and we finally made it to our honeymoon: a cruise to Mexico. Also… our first Holiday season with the in-laws.
Yep. Honeymooning & The Holidays. Newlywed Style.
Honeymooning & The Holidays
This post is a delayed, but nonetheless I wanted to share some pictures from our first holiday season together. We spent Thanksgiving with Steven’s family down in St. George, UT and then Christmas/ Hannukkah with my family in the bay.
Over the holidays we also had the opportunity to finally go on our honeymoon. We went on a cruise to Mexico – our boat stopped in Puerto Vallerta, Cabo, and Ensenada. We decided that we liked Cabo best, but apparently we missed out on good sightseeing in Puerto Vallerta. A lot of people we spoke to preferred Puerto Vallerta to Cabo… but I guess that’s what we get for not planning any excursions ahead of time. We also decided that we aren’t cruise people (we caught some cabin fever), although it was nice to have food available to us at all times without dishes or worrying about our wallets.
We spent new years at a night club on the boat, thinking that was where all the fun would be, but we also missed out on a pool party with the rest of the passengers in the middle of the boat. Maybe that was the issue with our cruise: we kept missing out on all the hot spots 😉 We still had a good time, but we were excited to come home to Miley and Rue.
Now we’ve been back for a couple of months, and we are back in the grind. Steven left insurance, in the hopes of pursuing real estate with some help from his wonderful brother Justin. We are hoping to start a family someday soon, and getting his own insurance agency started has turned out to be a slower process than we anticipated.
I’m still working on my degree in school psychology, and I’m hoping to graduate in June. I am defending my thesis at the end of February (fingers crossed that I will pass and that it’ll be over for good!).
And someday we hope to move back to California, either this year or next 🙂 Where should we go? Northern or Southern? We can’t decide!
