|So far this is what has been done. Walls put up, taped up, plastered, and textured. I'm super stoked that our laundry room is so close to being finished.|

It seems like forever ago that Arthur started on the laundry room; I'll be the first to admit we've both been slacking when it comes to remodeling the place. He officially moved back two weekends ago, so I do expect us to start doing so much more to the place within the upcoming months. Though, we're not completely done with the laundry room, I can't help but post pictures of the progress thus far. I'm so happy with how it's turned out. It's a tiny space, but it's changed so much. It's nice to have a man so handy around. ;-) Tonight the walls will be primed, and tomorrow I get to paint it! Who knew I'd ever be so excited to do manual labor?!? Here are the before and after, as of today. Of course, there's more work to do. I can't wait to get this baby finished (painted and shelves installed). Next project? Flooring in the kitchen and dining. Yay!

...But I see you now, my dear blog buddies. :) So, I rarely am on the computer these days, obviously. But since my new job and the access I have to the computer now, I am back on board (even if only for a short time). So this year has been a big year for me- lots of changes. First of all, I became engaged on May 11th; we will be married at the end of the year on December 1st, 2012 (12-1-12). Lots of ones and twos in there. And I recently left my job as a bank teller for a new one. And though it's been tough adjusting at first, I can now say that I'm getting the hang of things and enjoying it. I mean c'mon, I'm at work right now. I've applied for several positions here in the past, but finally got a position here. It's been really exciting! Where do I work, you ask? At the Texas State Aquarium (accounting). I have really enjoyed the folks here, they've been very welcoming and friendly. It's one big happy family over here. And I have really loved spending my lunch breaks downstairs, walking around and/or sitting down admiring the beautiful creatures- otters, fish, dolphins, and sea turtles, etc. Arthur (the fiance) and I have been working on our new place (apartment), doing little renovations here and there. Next on the agenda is new flooring for the kitchen and dining area. We've already picked out the laminate planks we will be putting down (hopefully sooner than later). It's a really beautiful color of "wood" aka laminate- Soft Plum from Lowes. It's been a lot of work so far, but it's looking great! I'm very happy with how everything seems to be falling into place. Until next time y'all!
So this is the apartment we are currently fixing up. This was the before, wood paneling and all. Yucky!
This is the apartment (living room) as of today. There's so much left to do, but I feel so good that we've done a lot of work already. Hopefully by December, it will be ready for Arthur and I to move into. Yay!!! And enjoy some random aquarium shots below.
There is something very calming about jellyfish. I love just watching them move in the water.
