Friends and Family I am happy to announce that Ken did indeed get the job at NOVA MUD and started this last monday!! We are so excited that he will not be out on the rigs any longer. Well he will be out there checking fluids, but he no longer has to do so much hard manual labor! Plus he gets a company phone and truck!! What a blessing this will be for us! The only down side... Moving to NEW MEXICO. I'm not super excited about this, but whats adding one more state to my list of places lived? :) They want us to move ASAP but its hard to find a decently priced place that will allow us to keep our dogs... Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this transition phase.

After making the move to Texas, and allowing adequate grieving time for being so far from family, I am beginning to feel like I could stand to see some more of the country. It has been quite an experience and adventure living so far from the only home I have ever known, but it seems like it would be easier now, and even kind of fun, to experience more of the vast unknown! Who knows where this new job of Kens will lead us next! If you would have asked me 2 years ago if I would ever live anywhere other than Idaho/Utah I would have adamantly said NO WAY, but look at me now! :)

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!~ And we will keep you posted about finding a new place!!

Ok it actually started MANY days ago, but this is the LAST monday before my FAMILY gets here! YAY! My little sisters, their boyfriends, and my baby brother will all be getting here on SATURDAY!! I'm so excited I can barely stand it, its been almost a year since I have seen them so I know I'm going to be a bawl-baby! They will be here for an entire week so I promise there will be many pictures and exciting stories to tell coming soon!! I hope everyone has a wonderful week! HAPPY MONDAY!

Latest Obsession

This is a picture of my latest obsession. Now don't get the wrong idea, I CANNOT stand having my fingernails painted (atleas not a color like this) but I do LOVE having my toenails painted. I've been practicing and experimenting with different colors and this is my latest favorite! I never thought I would be a blue nail polish type of girl, but hey, I've surprised myself many times before :) Besides it looks great with my new flip flop tan! Thats right all of my Idaho/Utah friends, I have already got a flip flop tan! You can all be jealous :)

In other news, Ken and I have started looking at moving to be closer to his job, we are trying to decide where to go though. We would really like to stay in Texas, but Carlsbad NM as well as Hobbs NM have also become options for us so we'll see what happens! Living in Texas has been such an adventure for us and it just keeps getting more exciting!

I hope everyone is having an excellent week!
