The Last Few Months!

     Well I haven't been as good at blogging as I would have hoped, but I figure while I'm home for the summer I can at least update everyone about how I spent the last couple months. Over the last three months, I have celebrated my 30th, spent time in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah, and moved into a new apartment. It's been a busy time, but I've really enjoyed settling in to my new home and establishing some routines. 
My awesome cake!
With Tasha for my birthday!
   Here are some pictures of my birthday, my trip to Iceland Water Park and my new digs. I am lucky enough to have a great group of friends here in Al Ain and they all came out to celebrate 30 with me. They even got me a cake from the cake lady which was delicious! We also took a weekend trip to RAK to enjoy the water park, which was great in the heat. I have realized that even though age has made me fearless in a lot of ways, amusement park braveness is not one of them. I went on the highest slide, but can't promise that I'll ever do that again!!

     Part of why I love the UAE so much is because we do something fun pretty much every weekend, whether it's going out in Dubai, pool partying in Al Ain, or hitting up a concert in Abu Dhabi. There is never a dull moment with my friends!

 As you may or may not know, my old apartment smelled like sewage. That is why I found a new place and moved in June 1st! I love my new digs and am so happy to be able to actually invite people in! After about a month, I finally got a couch and was able to host a housewarming gathering with a bunch of friends. I took advantage of my nice big kitchen and cooked for everyone. It was great having all my friends over. If only I had though to take a picture!!

So that's a brief glimpse of the last few months. While I've really enjoyed being home for almost four weeks now, I am really looking forward to my two week vacation to Paris and Italy. Seeing all of my family and friends has been wonderful and I look forward to the next time I'm home. Until then, I'll continue to keep everyone posted through my blog. I'm not going to make any promises, but I will try to be more frequent than once every three months!!
