New Here :)

Hello Nesties!

I just moved to FL from NH and thought getting on here might help me get to know people/the area better. I'm new to message boards in general, so I'll have to figure out the lingo as I go. Bear with me! I'm 24, married for a little over 5 years, no kids yet. Looking forward to chatting :)

Re: New Here :)

  • Hello there!  Nice to meet you and welcome to the boards :)  Which part of South FL did you move to?  H and I are getting ready to celebrate our 2 yr wedding anniversary in January, no kids yet either.  Look forward to chatting more with you!

  • Welcome to the Sunshine state... even though its not that sunny today!

    We're in Coral Springs area, have been here just over a year (moved from Clearwater, FL) so we dont really know anyone either. We've been married 1.5 years and no kids.. unless you count our two dogs! 

  • We are in the Ft Lauderdale area. Loving it so far! This was my first green Christmas. My family said it snowed yesterday morning in NH. I don't miss that! But it was pretty hard not seeing my family for the holidays...

     Are you guys far from family as well?

  • I can imagine it was difficult not seeing family!  My parents and brother live in the St. Lucie area, and we're down in Coral Springs.  The rest of my family is in Michigan and H's family is in New York.  Being from Michigan I understand - I miss the snow, but don't miss the shoveling and driving in it!

  • My parents are in Orlando and H's parents are in Wisconsin.

    We didnt go anywhere, and it was kinda nice, but kinda sad at the same time too.

    My dad and one of my sisters are actually coming down Wednesday and staying with us until Saturday, so that will be nice!

    What did you guys do for your first green (and 80+ degrees) Christmas?! 

  • Glad I'm not alone... we went to H's cousins house to eat and play games. We had a good time. I'm really thankful they live nearby! We also started going to Calvary Chapel in Ft Lauderdale. So far so good. It's so big that it's hard to really meet anyone on a Sunday. I'm hoping to join a women's group and get us into a couple's group so we can start meeting people!

     

  • BTW I'm working on how to use The Nest fully... any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, did you gals get any awesome gifts this year?

  • I've heard Calvary Chapel is big.. so is Church by the Glades.

    I've thought about joining a church, we went to one in Clearwater, but H is picky about them. I'm hoping we could make that be a new thing for 2012! Best of luck! We've been here about a year and a half, and still have no friends! I'll be honest though, we havent put forth as much effort as we should have though. Between work, me back in school, and H working from home, its a bit harder than expected!

     Hopefully soon though! ;) 

  • I'm just now starting to participate more on here, so cant provide too much advice!

    I like the "married life" board and the "money matters" board.

    They have a lively bunch of ladies! :)

    Its hard to keep up! I don't know how some of them do it! 

  • Hi! I just joined The Nest too. Although I'm not new to South Florida. Been living in Hollywood almost all my life. No matter how many times I leave the city I always come back. Been married for just over a month now. So excited! We need new married couple friends. All of our friends are still single. lol!
  • As far as using The Nest, I just come on here and my anniversary month board.  I don't really go anywhere else..sometimes look at the articles but that's about it.

  • Thanks! My goal this year is to learn how to cook.
  • Congratulations diade! My ongoing goal in life is to learn how to cook (it's a rollercoaster ride, lol!) I can make about 5 things really well, everything else is just a crazy experiement. Luckily H will eat just about anything ;) Have you checked out some of the recipes on here?
  • I have not really looked at them yet. My husband is Colombian and wants hispanic food. I'm hispanic as well but only know how to cook italian.

    I totally understand! We have been married since July 2010 and 2 weeks after we got married we moved over here from Clearwater, FL. So not only do we need married friends, we need friends in general!!
