I thought it'd be good to let everyone know we are here in Louisiana now. We are almost settled in - we have a place to sleep and a storage unit for most of our belongings (for the time being). Once something interesting happens, I'll be sure to post!

Markie was right...

I can't do it. The purpose of this blog is to keep in touch with friends and family and I feel as though I'm making it impossible to keep them updated with this blog on private. My friend, Markie, told me "everyone that decides to go private goes back." Well, I'm going back. I lasted almost a month.

On another note, why is it snowing now? It has gone almost all winter long with little skiffs that melt quick and now it is sticking - of course it happens the week we are moving. I guess we will be packing the truck in snow/rainy weather. Looking forward to that and driving it in the unplowed streets.

Great news...everything is packed and ready to go. What is even more impressive is I did it alone since Kevin has been working in Louisiana. And just to note, I am so glad we only have enough to fit in our apartment. I couldn't imagine packing a house.

And even better news... Kevin will be home tomorrow! I can't even tell you how excited I am! As long as I can help it, we will never do that again. Ever.

How I spent my weekend...

I found this puzzle of New Orleans' French Quarter at Walmart while I was picking up some cleaning supplies. I was thrilled and worked on it while watching episodes of The Office.
I was actually productive and did some cleaning in between sittings.
The oven has never looked better!

big news... no we're not pregnant

We had come to the conclusion that we would remain in Idaho after Kevin's graduation. We thought it would be smart to avoid the cost of a move and keep my job, which I absolutely love. It has paid the bills and we have insurance benefits and... Idaho might have grown on us a little. Disclaimer: I do not love Idaho, but it has been good to us and I think we've grown up. After a few interviews, prayers, and trying to exercise as much patience as possible...we have decided to move back home to Lafayette at the end of February. Kevin will be working with my dad at the lockshop and getting to use his degree, which is pretty exciting. He hopes to also begin in the Fall 2012 semester for his MBA at U of L. I'm fortunate enough to keep my job with the hospital and I'll be also working at the shop. With this situation it is win-win for everyone involved, which is always great.
We'll be busy and these are big changes but we are excited to be back in the south!
