I know, I know...

I was on such a roll there for a while, and then all of a sudden, I disappeared. 

Last time we "spoke",  I was heading to Dallas to spend the weekend with my 3 best girl friends. 
Guess what?
That didn't happen. 
I drove to Camp after work that Friday, Jennie and I hopped in her car and started driving in some crazy thunderstorm rain. About an hour into our drive, we realized her car was leaking water into the passengers side. 
So, we turned around, went and got Mexican food, watched movies and went to bed. 
(I ended up coming home at about 10am on Saturday morning. 
I was pretty bummed it didn't work out, but all in all, it was fun to see one of the three friends and fun to come home and hang out with my sweet husband.)

Some of the other things happening in our lives lately:

1.We have been shopping a lot. 
We have bought pillows for our bed, end tables, a TV and an TV stand. Lots of money, lots of time, lots of energy, lots of working togetherness
(This has been quite the marriage building exercise.)

2.Our niece, Kalynn had surgery on her kidneys last Friday. 
Please keep her recovery in your prayers. Sweet girl has suffered since she was a wee little baby with bladder infections and UTI's. She is only 2, so this was a big surgery. She's doing great though!

3. We spent a fabulous 3 days in Brenham this past weekend. 

It was so wonderful to be with my grandparents all weekend. We had good Mama J. homecooking, we antiqued, and talked a whole lot. It was great to catch up with them. They are so wise and so encouraging. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such a wonderful relationship with my grandparents. I don't know what I would do without them

4. We actually finished our dresser project. 
I love how it turned out and all credit is due to my sweet hubs. 
Ryan did this project all by himself. 
He even picked out the colors. 
(We were originally going to go with a robins egg blue, but decided last minute that since I change my mind so often with everything, we should go with a more neutral color.)
 It looks beautiful!

5. Interviewing
About a month ago, I let my boss know that I was looking for a new job on the side of town I live in. 
The hour, sometimes 2 hour,drive to work and the same back home, is getting very old. 
Right now we are spending about $500 in gas on just my car alone. 
That's not okay people.
 So, I have been interviewing for one job, and I have done 4 interviews. My last one was today.
 I should find out today or tomorrow if I got the job. I'm hoping that I did! I really want it and my last day here at the current job is next Friday. 

So, with that all said, we are doing great! We are both a little emotionally overwhelmed with me possibly not having a job for a little bit, but we are trusting God that He will take care of us and we know that He's got a plan. 

Hope you all are doing great!
Sorry I disappeared. 
I needed some alone time. 


A fabulous Life
