Life has been really busy lately! But I thought that I would do a little update to keep everyone in the loop.
Nic and I finally finished painting the kitchen. We had to do about 7 coats until we found the right color that we liked. It looks great though! Exactly what I imagined it to look like.
I started working at the Landmark Inn in Marquette about 2 months ago. I am bartending and serving at banquets. I only work 1-2 days a week but it is putting some extra change in my pocket. It is also nice to work with people, compared to my desk job. I like being on my feet and interacting with everyone.
The past couple weeks have been filled with visitors and fun!
My friend Tiffany came up from Chicago to enjoy the U.P. weather. And man was it HOT! 80’s and 90’s with plenty of sun. Perfect for the beach. We took our first dip in the big lake this year. brrrrrrrr. We also rode bikes around town and had a couple beers on the lake shore with friends, overlooking the city lights.
On the 4th of July, I went kayaking down the AuTrain river with a bunch of friends. It was a blast! The river water was very warm and the sun was abundant. Couldn’t have asked for a better day. I was so tired from the sun and kayaking, that I slept right through Marquette’s fireworks. Oh well. I needed the sleep considering I also worked the entire weekend at the restaurant.
My parents and their friend came up for my B-day on the 5th and we had a great day relaxing. We did some shopping, ate some sushi and watched a movie after taking the dogs to the beach.
Then….This past weekend, Nic’s little brother was in Marquette for a few days with his friend. Jordan hasn’t been to the U.P. since Nic and I were dating! So we have had tons of visitors lately. My neighbors probably think that I am running a hotel or something. 🙂
