The Game of Life

Standard

Oy – I thought last week was great! This week has taken the cake – and it isn’t even over yet!

Chad put it best last night when he said it’s like we’re playing The Game of Life…and WINNING! It seems we’re spinning all the right numbers and landing on all the right spaces this week. Not that we really have anything to do with it – to GOD be the glory! We’ve prayed earnestly for these things to happen in His timing, and that’s exactly what’s happening.

The week started off on Sunday – a great message at church, an impromptu lunch date and then we drove out to Cleveland to meet our brand new PUPPY! His name is Cooper and he was born on February 7 – that’s right, we share a birthday! He’s a pure bred Corgi (the breed we’ve wanted for so long!) and can officially come home with us once he’s old enough – April 2.

Then on Monday we got the news we’d be anxiously awaiting for 8 days – WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! We’re officially under contract for our first home in Spring, Texas. Things get REALLY real when you start writing big checks! The inspection is Saturday, so we’re praying for nothing but good news.

Tuesday was Mardi Gras – we didn’t do anything to celebrate, but it’s just a fun time of year. Thanks to our NOLA friends for sharing your pictures!

On Wednesday, a group of friends gathered at a favorite Irish pub and pizza joint (just trust me on this – it’s delicious) to celebrate my belated birthday. It was great to see some people I hadn’t seen in a very long time – we laughed, we ate, we drank – a solid Wednesday night!

Today is Valentine’s Day AND Chad’s first day at his new job!!! We’ll exchange cards and such tonight, but will forgo the day-of celebration since now we both have to go to bed early :) I am SO proud of him and excited for him – I can’t wait to hear about his first day when I get home tonight!

Tomorrow is when we’ll actually celebrate Valentine’s Day – we got a hotel in The Woodlands and plan to grab some Chinese takeout and just relax, just the two of us. Sounds pretty perfect if you ask me!

And then Saturday, as I mentioned, is inspection day! And that night we’re having dinner with the Brogans. HUZZAH!

This has been a GREAT week!!!

A Big Week Ahead!!

Standard

Greetings, blog readers! It’s been a while since my last post, but that isn’t for a lack of on goings! And a lot of big stuff is happening this week, so I’ll catch you up :)

First, I resigned from my job at Acxiom at the beginning of the month. I know, crazy! But I’m beyond excited to start my new job at my old company. That’s right! I’m going back to Pierpont Communications to work on several PR accounts. PR is my first and true love, and I can’t wait to get back to it. I start Monday!

Second, Chad takes his final teaching certification test on Tuesday! He’s one small step from being completely certified, which is a great thing, since he’s been offered a teaching job! I won’t go into specifics since the contract hasn’t been executed just yet, but its teaching math at an excellent high school nearby…

Third…and by “nearby” I mean near the house we put an offer on today! Mom (our realtor) submitted the paperwork, but we won’t hear back until at least Monday, since the home is a foreclosure and foreclosure agents only work M-F from 9-5. We are praying this is THE place for us! Expect a longer, more detailed post about the house if we get it :) We put a bid on another house a few weeks ago, but lost it :( It was heartbreaking! And you KNOW how I am a House Hunter¬†connoisseur¬†– they never show the people who lose the bids on that show! And they also never show the people who have to look at dozens of houses over several trips – like we did. When it’s all said and done, I think we’ve looked at about 20-24 houses (right now). God willing that number will not go up!

Fourth, Thursday is my birthday! That’s right, I’m turning the big 2-7 :) I”m excited to celebrate – I just need to figure out how! Though I think pizza and beer are on the agenda – and you KNOW how I feel about agendas! Love.

And finally, there’s this little thing called the Super Bowl tomorrow! Being the football lover that I am, the Super Bowl is like a holiday for me – and a great way to start off the week! Though I may have to call it a night early, since I plan to wake up early and hit the gym before going to work on Monday morning.

So there you have it! A recap of what we’ve been up to for the past few weeks. I’ll keep you posted on the house hunt!
