I've really been in the mood to travel lately. Actually, I've been in this mood for quite sometime. I haven't left Texas since I was 13, that's semi-embarrassing for me to say.. everyone around me seems to be going somewhere all the time. Sure, I've done stuff here in Texas, and don't get me wrong, I love this state. It's huge, meaning you can drive for three hours and still not be out of it, but the scenery around you has changed immensely. Sometimes I think about how people must feel living in smaller states, where you're able to drive an hour or less and be in a new state, that's kind of crazy to me.. But then again, I am from the middle of Texas, so traveling to Oklahoma and Louisiana takes some time; don't even talk about making it to New Mexico. Fun fact, did you know that if I lived in El Paso (very west Texas) I'd be closer to California than my hometown here in Texas. That's insane.
I will get a bit of travel fix come May, Curtis and I are going on a cruise to Jamaica, the Grand Cayman Islands, and Cozumel for our honeymoon. I've never been on a cruise before, so I'm pretty stoked. And no, I'm not scared to go on a cruise, I don't really think they'll let another ship break down..haha. But, I really do hope we travel more once we've got real jobs. He knows traveling means a lot to me, just because I haven't gotten to do it as much as I would've liked to growing up. I did more than some people I know, and got to spend an entire month in New York with my aunt and uncle, which was awesome. But, I've always loved the idea of new places, new people, and new cultures. This is probably just a big ramble with nowhere to go, but I think I'm going to try to save more for trips. Not that I have a whole lot to save anyway, but I'm going to make an effort to make my dreams become a reality -- and hopefully be able to share my adventures with you guys on this blog.
Anyway, here's my twenty-second day of 30x30, eight more! I can almost here my closet calling my name again, not to mention thrifty thrift shops, Target, and Forever 21 (or at least the jewelry section).
I thought of this outfit when I first started the challenge, but the first time I tried it on, I didn't like something about it. Honestly, I have no clue what I didn't like about it then, but I love it now! I really wanted to button up my collar all the way, but the neck in the sweater is too wide..oh well, I like it this way, it's nice and relaxing, even if I was sweating in class this morning. Coffee and three hundred people surrounding you in an auditorium classroom will do that to ya.
What about y'all? Do you want to travel anywhere in particular, or have you gone anywhere really awesome recently? Try not to make me too jealous!
