My Life in a Year

I haven't posted to my blog in about a year. I guess a lot of that has to do with time.
Some of that has to do with the fact that everytime I posted something on my blog, I would hear about it the next day from certain people. I got genuinely tired of censoring myself, and chose to stop writing altogether to avoid the stress.

The last time I posted was January of last year, 2011. It's March of 2012, almost April now. So almost a year and four months. A lot has changed in my life since then. A lot has remained the same.

Last time I posted I was unemployed, but I've held a job for a year now. It's consistent, but pretty tiring. I work upwards of 30 hours a week, which doesn't sound like much, but it's constant labor. No desk job for me.

I've moved a few times since January, and I currently live in Henderson, NV. We have a nice little one bedroom apartment that's the perfect size for the two of us. It's fully furnished with our OWN furniture. Which is, of course, nice as well.

On February 23, 2012 Andrew and I got married.

So, as of today I have been married for one month and one day. It was a small wedding, attended by Andrew's brother and his girlfriend, as well as four of our good friends.
I haven't legally changed my name yet because I don't have my birth certificate, but once I get it I will begin the process.

My estranged father, who I haven't spoken to since July of 2010, found out because of the courts. Still haven't heard from him, and I'm assuming because he's too much of a coward to try to speak to me. He has all of the ability in the world, and none of the desire.

Andrew and I have been on a few vacations in the past year. Sadly, my old computer blew up and destroyed most of the pictures. I do have a few to share.
Those were from our trip to LA back last April. We went for 5 days, and on two of the days we went to Universal Studios. We also went to the beach and the Santa Monica pier.

We went on a camping trip with our best friends some time in the fall of last year. We've made new friends over the past year that are closer than any of our previous friends. They constantly come over and hang out, and we normally just play card games and still have a great time. Not pictured: other best friend Josh. He wasn't on the trip, but he's over the most out of anyone.

I also got more tattoos and a piercing.


I got another tattoo, but I'm not trying to find a picture of it right now.
My hair is now basically barbie doll blonde, which is a pain to keep up. But I wanted something different from my usual dark colors.
I also have a sweet little puppy named Chloe. She's four months old, and loves kisses and cuddles.
My mom and I still talk daily. We've had our ups and downs in our relationship, but we still talk and are relatively happy with eachother.

I've had ups and downs in my life. Hardships and stresses. Last year I was supposed to be married in April, but I suppose everything happens for a reason, and I just had to wait a year to be Mrs. Lopez.

My husband means the world to me. He genuinely cares for me and does everything in his power to provide for us. We're going on Vacation soon to get some well-deserved rest and relationship time. Of course, we're going to our favorite place in the world:
Disneyland. So attractive, I know.
Anyway, it's getting late, so I'm going to peace out. I'll leave you with my classic webcam photo, from current times.

So happy to see you back and blogging. I know we don't know each other but I had found your blog a couple years ago and have kept up with it. I lived in Vegas for about 5 years - mostly in Henderson. My dad still currently lives in Henderson. It's great to see you're so happy :)

Just wanted to welcome you back. ...hope to see more from you!
