Big time purchase!

2012 is going to bring tons of fun, new things for me.

I'm going to Hawaii with the family in August. Should be very interesting getting my mom on a plane flying over water for 6 hours. Maybe this vacation will actually be relaxing....maybe.

I'm doing some of the biggest events I've ever done at work. Lets just say that July should be very interesting. :)


I buying the most darling blue house ever!!!
We settled on a deal today and will close in April. Hopefully inspection and everything else goes smoothly. The thoughts of decorating, painting, etc will occupy my brain for the next several months. I cannot wait to put it all into action.

Stay tuned for my many projects to be documented.

6 months ago I was very comfortable and confident in my life and work. I had been at work a year and felt mature and successful in what I was doing. I knew I had tons to learn still but I was happy with where I was.

I was happy with my single girl life.

Today I am unsure about things. Not that comfortable anymore. Maybe I'm supposed to be learning patience or how to be submissive.

Quarter life lesson to be determined.

Few things....

1. I have a few older gentlemen admirers. One is a regular attendee of Rotary here at work so I see him every Thursday around 11am. He is gradually getting bolder with me. He has recently told me that my curly hair is sexy and that I have cute feet.

My other fella is around 40 and frequently tells me he wishes I was his wife. He is definitely married.

Who gave old guys the "say whatever you want" pass?

2. My name is not Amber, Ashley, Audrey, Aubry or Aubri. Neither is my last name Wilson. I would hope those who've known me for several years would know all this but apparently not. I would NEVER mispell someone's name. I would feel so bad....its their FREAKING name!!

3. I go on family vacation in exactly one week. I am not currently sold on Disney World but am being told that Disney will prove itself to me and be amazing. Bring it me what you got.

Here's a little peek into every Saturday night of my life :)

Here comes 25

I love today. I feel so calm. It feels fantastic outside. I've had so many things going on and tons of things to think about in the past few weeks that I haven't had a chance to sit and write. 
I started the process of purchasing a house about 3 weeks ago and since then my mind has been constantly occupied with houses, townhomes, zip codes, windstorm insurance, decorating, moving, down payments. I am super excited about this next few months but know it will a mind boggling process. I can no longer drive through a neighborhood without analyzing everything. I see a house for sale or a nice neighborhood and I must research it later. 
I was slightly stressed about it about the beginning and felt the pressure to make huge decisions about houses I wasn't sure about. Now, for some reason, I am calm about it. I will find the one I love when the time is right. I will not stress.
During this same time, I was planning a shower for Sara in the span of a week and taking on the role of Membership Chair for the hospitality association in town. I constantly had 7 different things rolling around in my head. I am happy to say that Sara's shower was precious and went wonderfully! And I am making my way as the Membership Chair. Meetings and lists have been made and things will be great.

We are now in the month of my 25th birthday and I can see that 25 is going to be a great year. 24 had some many exciting twists and turns, I can't wait to experience what's next.
Get excited for fun, creative decorating blogs to come. They're gonna be big! I am personally anxiously waiting to see the first inch worm of the summer. They are soooo cute I can barely breath. Heehee.
