Our New Place...So Far

Here are some pics of the Ballard home-San Antonio edition. Cole and I used to live in an apartment that was about 450 square feet, so this place feels HUGE! It even has a one-car garage and a half bath downstairs. We like it a lot so far. I'm trying to make a gallery-style collage of frames like the ones pictured below, but I'm having the darndest time trying to measure it all out. Anyone ever done this before? Curse that Martha Stewart and her effortless style!

Messy loft

View from the loft and my sweet, lanky hubby zonked out

Master bath w/ a big tub!

Bedroom w/ our brand new mattress. We still haven't gotten a comforter that fits, but no matter, it's like 90 degrees when we go to bed at night; who needs a comforter??

Getting Ready to Grovel

This job hunting has got me down.

Do you know what percentage of the U.S. population has a bachelor's degree? As of 2005, it was 27.7%--less than half. Doesn't that somehow make me more qualified than over half the population? Shouldn't that put me in the immediate "Hey, Give that girl a job!" category? Twenty plus applications later and still no call-backs.

Enough of my moping. Yesterday we saw the famed Alamo and strolled the River Walk in San Antonio, which was beautiful. We plan to go again when it's not so hot and we're not so broke. Here are the few pictures I got. Next outing will be to San Antonio's German communities (who knew?) and Cole's boss' wife's cupcake shop! I'm excited! Hope y'all (hehe!) had a great Memorial Day!
