Moving on Up

So I started a little packing last night and am realizing that this job is going to be quite the process! I can't imagine what it's like to move when you have kids! Matt and I are just starting out and really don't even own all that much (with the exception of my massive jean and shoe collections!). Seriously, I prob own between 30 - 40 pairs of each. Ridiculous, I know. Thank God I can at least still fit into my shoes (perhaps not for long though?). I pray that I will get back into my jeans...

Back to business. I don't think Matt has the slightest clue what moving all this stuff will be like (no, I'm not only referring to my jeans and shoes :) ). I looked up packing tips online and Matt laughed at me! I tried to explain this won't simply be throwing things in boxes...he then warned me that I might not like his packing skills....uh oh! We'll get through it:)

Good news! Ok, just when I wondered how life could possibly get any better, God trumps it! Matt just informed me this morning that he is being promoted! This happens to come with a nice hefty raise!!! So proud of him:) And what better timing with buying our first home and having our first babe:) Praise God!


  1. congrats on his promotion! what a great provision for you guys as you're preparing to welcome your baby! don't worry, you'll get back into your jeans. six months after i had my son, i weighed less than i did before i got prego. and then of course i got pregnant again... i'm really looking forward to staying in my old jeans for awhile after this little girl arrives!

  2. Congratulations on the promotion!!

  3. congrats on the promotion! That is awesome! moving is a huge chore but I love to clean out and declutter in the process!
