Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Due to a combination of factors, I stopped blogging for a little bit.

But I’m back now!

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone. December is here with a vengeance in Utah. We have tons of snow and tons of idiotic drivers to go along with it.

I worked what is hopefully my last University of Utah Football game. I was out in below-freezing temps for over 8 hours (BOO!). We won, and against BYU (our biggest rival) no less. I am praying that this time next year I will be freezing my butt of in Bulgaria as opposed to freezing my butt off in Utah!

I have been a crafting maniac the past few weeks. I do this. I have these spurts of creative energy every few months. Sadly, it usually peters out and I end up with half-finished projects. However, I am happy to say that this time around that doesn’t seem to be the case.

I {finally} got my jewelry supplies from Etsy and made my “Cougar Town” necklaces. In addition to those I also made a few matching bracelets and some earrings.

My slightly ambitious plan is to make all my Christmas gifts this year. Don’t know how well that is working out as I have already purchased a few items for some people.

I recently got the knitting bug again and have been stalking ravelry day and night. I think I finally came to the conclusion that I prefer knitting over crochet. Which kind of sucks as I have an almost-finished blanket for V. that has been sitting for 2 years now.

Anywho, I ordered some wool yarn in very specific colors for a very special project (more on that in a future post). While waiting for that yarn to arrive, I am making some awesome cotton dish cloths to take with me when I move to Bulgaria. Already accessorizing my future kitchen, is that weird? My aunt has had them since I can remember and they are always the ones I reach for when I am cleaning up the all too often baking messes Annalee and I make in her kitchen.

Finally, today is the opening day for applications for Princess Tours in Alaska. I am going to be applying soon and it’s a bit of a surreal experience. I worked in Denali in 2008 (where I met V.) and have always wanted to go back. It’s still not a done deal. I have to be hired (not super worried about that) and V. has to get his work visa (super worried about that).  Fingers crossed we will find ourselves in beautiful Denali, Alaska this upcoming summer.

That about wraps up the past few weeks of my life.

Captivating, wasn’t it? 😉

  1. Pictures of the necklace, and keep us posted on AK with the boo. I hope it works out, I’m imaging it being disgustingly awesome.

    • Working on pics of the jewelry. I seem to have misplaced my camera, so that’s the reason why I haven’t done it before now. And AK plans are coming right along, I actually got a second job today! Princess will be my main job but I wanted to work part time somewhere else to make some extra $.

  2. Super captivating. 🙂 (I liked it! Lol.)
