I'm back!...with big news....

So I have been holding out on posting much here for a while!! Truth be told: the last month of my life has been a complete whirlwind. You know that trip to Amarillo where we got to spend literally 48 hours scoping it out? Well, the husband was here for an interview and I got to tag along. I was in major denial that we could potentially be uprooting our newly established life to hightail it out west. Cut to a week later, after lots of tears and prayers, we decided he should definitely accept the job offer. And..., we live in Texas!! North a little google mapping if you're not sure about Amarillo. It's smack in the middle between Alburquerque and Oklahoma City. Of course if you follow me on instagram or if we're real life friends, you're aware of our big change and probably saw snippets of our westbound travels! :) We had a successful farewell tour in the midst of packing up our house and getting it ready for the market. Our trip out here was a blast and I can't believe we got to check off some of our "biggest cities in the US" goal. It was definitely fun. Even though it felt like a vacation, the final destination and change was looming over us so, it was nerveracking at the same time. Don't get me wrong, we're excited to be here. Embracing the change.... but neither of us have lived more than an hour away from our hometowns so this is huge. I know we'll be alright, though! Our little Honda Accord was packed to the brim with our most important belongings and we thankfully arrived in one piece. So we're here! 2400 miles away from home, in a little furnished apartment, just waiting for our house to sell! Fingers crossed it'll be real soon.

Since the hubs has started his new job and I've unpacked and made this humble abode liveable, I should be back to blogging next week on a regular basis. My main focus is finding a house and maybe even a job. I could go on with the terrible and interesting things I've seen while house hunting here (ahem. crazy clowns!?), but I'll just keep trucking until we find something cute!

So friends, this weekend we'll be exploring our new town, heading to a "city center" block party, and maybe even hanging out with new friends! Hopefully I can check a few things off my to-do list and maybe we'll have better luck in our house hunting! Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine!
