Big News and Some FiH Fun...

Happy Thursday everyone! I have some big news to share. My boyfriend got a job offer in Northern California, and will most likely be moving there with him sometime THIS MONTH! This is a big deal for me on many levels. I have never lived outside of Arizona. I have lived in Tucson and Flagstaff, but they are both about two hours from my parents. This will be over 10 hours to drive home. I also have never lived with a boy. Yes... I am almost 25. Yes... Dave and I have been dating for almost three years. I know we could handle it and in most ways I think it will be great. I will have to find a job up there and possibly get a Cali RX license, which means taking their law exam and learning all their rules.

The bigger issue for me is leaving my family and friends (and his friends too.) I am extremely close to my family and I would miss them like crazy. My grandpa is also having some serious health problems and I would not be able to see him every week like I do now. There are a lot of issues for me to think about before I decide but a big part of my heart is saying "GO FOR IT!" and I think it would be nice to explore a new state and city together. I love Dave so much and I can't picture my life without him. So, while this is not exactly a "thoughtless post" I will share some random snapshots of Dave and Ty for Thoughtless Thursday. In my heart I know it would be a great adventure with this wonderful man by my side! (And that little furry man too!) I will definitely keep you all updating with the whole move and everything! On a lighter note, the wait is finally over for the new Twilight movie. I am not a fanatic like some, but I actually really loved the first movie. I had LOW expectations because I normally hate that kind of story, but this was much better than I thought. I never saw the second one, so I am hoping to rent it soon and then hit the theaters for the newest installment. Thought I would share a little Face in Hole fun... Did anyone else know that Robert Pattinson sings? Its actually not too shabby! Check it out...

Head on over and play along too!

  1. Wow, that is awesome! How exciting to move someplace different!

  2. What part of Northern Cali???? I'm in the Sac'll love it!

  3. Wow! Congratulations on his getting a job out there! I think I'd be hesitant to leave my family too, but you can always visit! Do whatever is right for you -- good luck with your decision! :)

  4. That would be such an adventure! I love California and will hopefully be traveling there more often since my dad's moving to the Malibu area in September. Will you be close to the coast?

    I actually love Robert Pattinson's music. :-)

  5. I just found your blog and realized you live in AZ too :( and now your moving LOL..But what an exciting time! I have family all up and down the coast of California, you will have to post many pics! I hope you don't mind a new follower!

  10. Congratulations and best of luck on the move!

  11. Haha love the pic of you and Robert Pattinson! :)

    I gave your blog an award! Check out my blog for info!

  12. That's a big decision, but I'm a huge supporter of just going for it!! Change can be such an amazing thing! When I decided to move to NY from LA, I was petrified, but it's been the best thing. I am wishing you so much luck and happiness!


  13. It takes a lot to pick up and move from the city you grew up in. I wish I had the guts to move a few cities over but I am so use to routine and am not good with change. I wish you the best of luck with your move and I hope once you have settled in, you continue to blog. I really enjoy reading your posts.

    P.S. I have left an award for you on my blog.
