House Update

Greetings y'all! Hope this week finds you well, we're almost done! Hooray for Friday!

I haven't posted much about the house lately.  Everyone told me that once the drywall went up it would seem like they were moving at a snails pace.  I found that to be so true!  Sometimes we're going out to visit only once or twice a week.  Doesn't help that we've been really busy with work too. 

I went out to visit today and had to break in through a window! Apparently we've been locked out of our own house...bummer!  I was thrilled to see that we had cabinets installed!  The kitchen is what really sold me on the house and I love watching it take shape!

They've also started painting and have put up all the trim work.  I'm so excited to see the colors in real life!

The Office

Dining Room


Day by day we're getting closer and closer.  I still haven't really thought much about packing and moving because it still doesn't feel real.  I suppose I should get myself in gear!! 

Hope you all have a great week!


Good in Goodbye


She's done it again!! Carrie Underwood's fourth album has hit the shelves and y'all, I've been waiting for a looooong time for today to come around, like since her last album was released back in 2009!  I just love Carrie!  She's beautiful with an even more beautiful voice and just seems like we could be friends!

 My favorite song so far is "Good in Goodbye".  It's a song about someone running into their ex and realizing now that even though it hurt at the time, that it was for a good reason that they went their separate ways.  I guess I'm having an I really miss home day, because when I heard the song it really spoke to me as a sign that even though it was painful to leave home that it was for a good reason and will be worth it in the end.  And like the lyrics say, I thought I deserved to not have to go anywhere to have everything I ever wanted.  I thought I deserved to have my husband and my family and my job and my home all in the same place.

As bad as it was,
as bad as it hurt,
I thank God I didn't get
what I thought that I deserved.
Sometimes life
leads you down a different road,
when you're holdin' on to something
 that you gotta let go.
Someday you'll see the reason why.
yeah sometimes,
There's good in goodbye.

The difference for me was that I didn't have to wait until someday to see the reason why.  I got the clarity and happy ending that I needed the minute I had to say goodbye to my friends, family, job, and home.  He was standing at the end of the altar waiting for me almost a year ago.  And I know that this move will be good for us.  I know it will make us stronger and more united in our marriage.  I just have to wait and see about the details.
