breathing...

What a week.

My husband accepted a new job. WHOOP!

My husband quit his job here ... went very well.

I celebrated my birthday 3 nights in a row... yeah for no cooking!

I got lots of fun presents for my bday... a new Nicholas Sparks book (in hardback... I normally wait until its in paperback), a beautiful new coat, a Sonicare toothbrush (which I LOVE!), and a couple fun things from some girlfriends... including some Belly Butter from Burt's Bees... every pregnant woman should try it... its great!

We put our house on the market. We even had a showing yesterday and are suppose to have a couple more this next week.

I've cleaned my house more this week than I did the entire month of July. (If you remember I was pretty sick that month and cleaning wasn't in my vocabulary that month... nor was cooking!). Seriously though my house is so stinkin' clean.

Adam and I are meeting his parents today to drop off Grace. They are keeping her for the week! Well I guess for a few days. We will be going to their house on Wednesday. Until then we will be working on finding a new house and praying our current home sells so we can buy a new home!

So for now I'm just breathing and taking one day at a time. While we are super excited to be moving home, I'm just trying to take it slow and not get overwhelmed. Thanks for the prayers.

We actually ordered a St. Joseph on e-bay that I'm hoping will come very soon. Have you heard the old wives tales about a St. Joseph statue when trying to sell your house? Check it out here... anything is worth a shot :)

Glad to see that everything is going ok. I hope the house sells quickly! When does your Hubbie have to be in TX for the new job?

I am so excited!
I have heard about the St. Joseph thing also... My grandmother swears it help sell her house!
Good Luck

Happy belated birthday! Maybe a late birthday present will come and you'll have an offer on your house next week!

This is the time to sell, people usually move around Christmas and at the end of school!

Have a great Thanksgiving and keep us posted on your house status!

I love my sonicare toothbrush, too! You will see huge results when you go to the dentist next time!

Good luck with the move!

How fun! I didn't know Nicholas Sparks has a new book out! I've read all of them! I guess I'll have to get on that one! Thanks for the tip! Oh, and hope your time without Grace goes by fast!

Glad you have a month or so before he starts the job! Hopefully you will have a nice relaxing Christmas in a new house in TEXAS!!!
