Well, I’m here to report that our new adventure is going good so far! Brady started working on Monday (last week) and he really likes it! He’s doing good and I’m so proud :) I, on the other hand, am enjoying the beautiful weather, reading a great book and spending time with Brady and my in-law’s! I am not too familiar with where we live now but I know I’ll pick it up quick (hopefully)! I’m so excited to go to the library this week and check out some more books. Do some more spreads in my bullet journal, and start exercising a little bit more. There are some exercise goals that I want to work on so I’ll have to do a little bit of research first!
I miss my family and friends. Going home this past weekend was really hard on me. Missing my dad very much, feelings of depression and just being back home really made me wish we hadn’t come home in the first place! I never thought I’d say that but I’m ready to go back to our new home and life. I’m so excited to keep sharing our lives with you here on the blog. Little things that I’m up to and maybe things we do or places we go! One of my goals either this month or next (depending on the weather), is to make it to the temple!! I sure miss that place!

Brady and I went to church in our new ward and it went just fine! I was a little nervous going into the classes but I ended up doing great! Brady just looks so cute in his Sunday attire!
Brady and I have moved a lot in our married life. It’s exhausting and causes me a lot of anxiety. Packing is the worst and I just want to settle somewhere and not have to pack ever again. It’s hard work.
Feeling like I needed to cram in all of my goodbyes was stressful!! There just isn’t enough time in the day or the week or the month! I ended up with a pinched sciatic nerve the last couple of days of work and that was really hard. At my job, I’m on my feet my entire shift and I’m lifting boxes, climbing on ladders, stocking stuff on shelves, walking around… just constantly moving and it really made the pain worse. I tried to tough it out because I didn’t have time to go see a doctor.
I’m so grateful to my mom and my husband who helped me pack our stuff because I would have gone crazy if I had to do this myself. Before taking off on our new adventure, I was able to visit with my cute friend Taelor and her little girls!! They’re so stinkin’ cute. I’ve never met them so I was really excited when we got together for lunch and a treat after! It’s so good to catch up with Tae in real life, I miss her so much!!
So so so so grateful for good people in my life. People that love and care about me. So many people online too! I have amazing online friends as well as IRL friends! ;) My life is one big blessing and I am doing my best to see that each day!
The other day, my sisters and I got together to do some Christmas crafting. I had so many ideas of what to do but decided on just two. I was going to make a “Santa Cam” for my sister, my mom and myself. I think it’s the cutest thing ever! Buuuuuut mine ended up looking terrible and nothing like the photo I saw on Pinterest. Haha!! I laughed a good laugh! I love crafting with my sisters! We enjoy crafting together! Also, please take note of the other crafts in this photo, my sisters are sure talented!
I had a pretty good weekend.
Spent a lot of it with family & Brady.
On Friday, I went to the mall with my mom and sister, and her boys.
It was pretty fun! We love browsing the mall.
Cooper was my little friend that day.
I love spending time with the boys!!
I also got my gorgeous ring cleaned,
so I of course had to take a photo of it!
I’m excited for Thanksgiving this week,
we’ll be spending time with Brady’s dad & his family.
