Well, it’s been a pretty uneventful week in Arizona. We’ve been spending a lot of quality time with our computers – beefing up our resumes, writing kick ass cover letters, and applying for jobs. I’ve been applying for office jobs even though I’d probably be happier bartending. Never fear – I’ll apply for restaurant jobs next week. If you’ve never worked in a restaurant before, the application process is a little different than for ‘real’ jobs – mainly because if you apply for a job and they like you, they generally want you to start right away – sometimes the same day you apply. Since I wanted to go to Vail for Dave and Lisa’s wedding, I didn’t want to apply somewhere, get offered a job, and miss out because I didn’t want to work the holiday weekend.
We’ve also been out in search of the perfect northwest Phoenix apartment. We’ve been spoiled in the past with cool, unique apartments, but those don’t really exist in Peoria or Glendale. We’ve looked at about ten places so far, and to be perfectly honest, they all look the same. We’ve got a few more to look at, but I think we’ll end up picking the cheapest one that isn’t too ghetto and call it good.
The other thing that’s been keeping us busy is our new business venture. We have been working on getting our website up and running and delivering our first finished product to our guinea pig first clients. Jen and Steve were nice enough to let us design their wedding Save the Dates and Invitations, and they turned out really good (even if I do say so myself!) Hopefully that is just the beginning for our design business. If you’d like to check out our website, it’s www.thetaylorddesign.com I’ll warn you, it’s still a work in progress so please be gentle – we’ll do an official launch sometime next week once we finish polishing it up a bit more (and adding more pictures of our work!)
Speaking of Vail and Dave and Lisa’s wedding, we are back on the road and headed north this time. We’re going to hit two states we missed on our honeymoon – Utah and Colorado! It’s going to be an awesome weekend! It’s the trifecta – a fabulous wedding, Mike’s birthday, and the Fourth of July! It’s going to be fun!
