We're Moving!

Well it is 99% official! We are moving to Houston when Jeff graduates in May! We recently found out that he was extended a job offer with Hewlett Packard, and last Friday he accepted the offer! I apologize for the amount of exclamation points, but it is very exciting :)

Now that Jeff finding a job is off our to-do list, we get to add on to the list packing, finding a place to live, renting a moving truck, actually moving, and all the other exciting yet stressful things that have to do with moving.

I have loved living in College Station for the past few years (make that almost 6 years), but I am certainly ready to move somewhere new. At first I was worried about moving to Houston because the traffic there is horrible. But now that it is getting closer to becoming our home, I am kinda looking forward to this new adventure in our lives together.

My brother and sister-in-law live in Houston, so it will be nice for our boys to see each-other more often. They're only 1 month apart in age, so it is really nice when we can get them together and play.

We've already put together a budget, and we have done tons of research on places we would like to live. When we go to Houston to visit Jeff's parents for Easter weekend, we're going to go look at some places and hopefully find where we are going to move.

I get very anxious when it comes to this kind of stuff because I don't like not knowing where we are going to go or what we are going to do. I think that has something to do with my control issues :( and I like to have a plan for everything.

This will be our first big move with William, any pointers on making a move with a toddler go smoothly?

P.S. I apologize for the very wordy post :) these thoughts were floating around in my mind and I just had to get them out. 


  1. I'll make this a two-fer post. First, I LOVE LOVE the Berenstain Bears quilt. Those were my favorite books growing up too and I can't wait to have little babies so I can share the books with them. I know your son loves/will love the quilt :)

    Second, congrats and good luck with your move! You aren't moving too far and you seem super organized so I'm sure you'll make it a smooth transition. After moving 3 times in the past 2 years, I'm used to up and moving and all I can say is make lists! Or at least that's what helped me stay sane. Congrats again and I love reading your blog :)

    1. Thanks Emily! Making lists for basically everything has definitely become a must for me :)
