The one with a table. Finally.
Also, you'll see in this picture, I need curtains!!! Really bad. Trying to figure out the best design/color for the room. I love how light and airy it feels- so I don't want to get something dark and heavy- but at the same time- I need to get something up quick.
A picture I have NOT posted is of my kitchen. But I would officially call it complete. The walls are decorated, the appliances are in, and I'm back in business! There are a few things I still need to replace (waffle maker, food processor) - but for the most part- it's a complete working kitchen! It feels good to say that.
On a more personal front, life in DC has been good. I still have hard days and I'm getting used to the fact those days will just happen. There will be things I go to grab or use and realize it's not there. Or songs/documents on my home computer that I start to search for...and realize they aren't there. In addition- just trying to find out what 'normal' life will look like here in DC. Normal in Dallas was SOOOO drastically different than normal in Tallahassee. It took major adjusting to. I'm assuming normal in DC will also take adjusting to.
In all of this, I've realized how much I love for things to stay the same. Sure, there will be an ebb and flow to all aspects of our lives, but I love steadiness. Probably why I love Jesus as much as I do: it may be one of the most attractive characteristics about Him. He's constant. Bottom line. I can't say that about too many people, but He is.
In other news, I turn 29 in just over 2 weeks. And as my roommate so lovingly reminded me- that i'm entering my 30th year of life. I never thought of it that way. I kept thinking 30 is NEXT year. But in reality- I'm beginning my 30th year of life. No special plans for my birthday, but if the weather is good, I may take a half day and do some solo sight seeing that I've yet to do much of in the city! The only time I've seen the sights in DC is when I've gone for runs and I just run past them. Speaking of running, I'm running my 2nd half marathon on March 16!!! I'm ready for it to be over with. :-) Is that awful? Ha! I'm tired of training for it and ready to cross the finish line :-)
And last but not least, a few travel plans in the near future:
-Dallas in April
-Florida Keys in May
-Possible Michigan trip in May
-Disney World in July
