Moving (again)

Here's a pic of my kitchen area of my current place. Tomorrow or very soon I will be moving downstairs to another apartment that is slightly bigger. Instead of a studio, (I've been using one room as a living room AND  a bedroom) I will have a one bedroom apartment. I'm excited because the bedroom has a brick wall and the living room is hardwood floor. I really hate moving though, even if it's only downstairs. And the feeling I have is bittersweet. I really love my bathroom with its natural lighting and deep tub, and my kitchen is specious and lovely. But I hate how congested it feels in the bedroom/living-room space.

My bathroom: love the window!

Another of the bathroom. I love the pedestal sink

Another view of more of the kitchen

My bedroom/ living room. Doesn't it feel congested to you? Maybe I'm just crazy

Better view of the bed

Another view of the room- sorry for the mess!!

So thats that a bit of a tour of my apartment, soon to be "old" apartment. I can't wait to start decorating downstairs and starting fresh again, and have a little more room to do so.

Have a great rainy day!

It's been one of my most favorite things lately to look through Pinterest and find my favorite rooms and spaces. These usually include lots of natural light, lots of green plants and a Kilim rug. Ha ha!
I pictured a few of my favorites above, here are their links: Onetwothreefour.

I've been pondering a lot and feeling listless, like I'm not doing what I'm meant to be doing. God gave me a singing voice for a reason, and a desire to heal people. I have an appointment with a music degree councelor at Saint Cloud State tomorrow morning, wish me luck! I really would love to pursue a music therapy degree, but I don't want to travel or move, so I think I'll attempt finishing my music degree then go on to do a music therapy equivalency program online. It will take longer but I believe that it would be cheaper and more suited to me. I've been meaning to do some more schooling but I've never took the step to get back into it. Here's hoping and praying that this time I will really do it, not just have good intentions, and that this is the right step. They say that it's hard to go back to school once you stop...well...I'm living proof of that. It's been too long. It's time.

Now I'm off to go work out with my gal-pal Angel. Hopefully this will stick too! :)

Here are a few snaps of my January. Its been sooooo cold in Minnesota, pretty much record breaking. It was fun though, my college friend Katrina came up for a sleepover and we watched the Golden Globes together. I also just hosted a Super bowl party with my truly wonderful neighbors. I'm glad that I can utilize my apartment so well, despite it being so small. I love to share my home with others. Have a great start to your February everyone!

1. Looking through my pictures on a warm day, listening to the snow melting off the roof.
2. My cat loves the new rug I bought! What a goof.
3. A mixed drink I made at my Super Bowl Party, truly tasty. Heres the link for the recipe!
4. My cat also loves my "new" vintage, velvet couches. So does her hair. :(
5. My beautiful friend Katrina and I enjoying coffee at a local coffee shop on her visit.

A "Very late" Christmas party post

These photos are very late, (and blurry, sorry only an iPhone for pictures) but better late than never I always say! I had the perfect opportunity to update my blog considering its -20 degrees outside and i'm hibernating until this arctic blast is over! I had my new "housemates" over for a meet-n-greet Christmas party in December and it was a blast! I love these ladies already and we get along very nicely. All the boyfriends were busy so we got to have some good girl time. I made puppy chow, and the girls brought home-made salsa, meatballs and various treats.
I made spiked cranberry rum which was oh so tasty, and you can find the recipe here.

Have a safe and happy new year! I have many things I want to improve on this year. Most of all I am thankful for all I already have.
