Good News and Bad News

What a start to 2015 this has been.

Drew and I found a new place! We move in January 28th and we are super excited about it. It's a step up from the apartments we've had in the past. This time we got a duplex with a yard that I know our dogs will love. It's a cute two story duplex with the living room/kitchen on the bottom floor and the entire upstairs is our bedroom, restroom, and huge walk in closet. I am so excited to start decorating.

Other good news - I was pulled into the office at work with news that I may be getting a role change soon. They want me to take on a more project oriented role which excites me a lot. In my previous role I was answering everyone's questions about benefits and helping them figure out their new plans. When I move to my new role, I will not be on the phone anymore. Woot Woot. They did mention that I may be working longer hours some days, but I'm very okay with that.

The bad news - Drew lost his job of 5 years on January 8th. I know, perfect timing right. But the way I see it, it's actually good news. Really good news. I could see that he was becoming unhappy working there and even after 5 years he wasn't getting paid what he deserved. He was such a hard worker.

So he's on the hunt for a new job. So far the prospects are building and designing pools, landscaping, or foundation repair. All of which I know he'll enjoy because he likes using his hands and creating things. He also loves a job that he can sweat and get dirty at. He is not the office type of guy.

With that being said, I am soooo excited for 2015. A lot of new things are happening and I look forward to the day that we're settled into our place, Drew has a new job, and we are happier than ever.

New Beginnings


I'm hoping the New Year will bring me more energy and time to blog more often. Not only that, but we're moving into our new place at the end of this month and I will have internet again! Hallelujah.

So I really do hope to blog more and run and workout and just feel good about myself again.

 I'm going to let my pictures explain what I've been up to lately because obviously I don't remember how to write a blog anymore.

My niece is getting so big. Every time I see her she is changing. This Christmas she was finally old enough to rip the wrapping paper off of her own gifts. Too cute.

A Christmas Decorating Competition at work. We went all out

Watching Drew's Softball games

Watching Drew do what he does best

Okay so this entire post was pointless, but very, very necessary.  It's a reminder that I need to use my camera again and go out and do fun things.

Next post is sure to be better, I promise.
