Extra, Extra Read All About It

The News: One week ago today Jesse and I found out that Jesse was being transferred to Houston, TX!

The Details: Jesse starts work there March 15 and I will joining him by the end of March. This is completely fast and crazy if you ask me, but I guess that is part of working for a big company.

The Work: We have only a few weeks to go to Houston and find an apartment to rent, thoroughly clean our house and get it ready to be out on the market, find a Realtor and do some work around the house. Luckily we don't have to pack a single thing, the company will do that for us and they will fly us down to Houston, so for the most part it is stress free, but that still doesn't mean there isn't lots of work to do.
We plan to rent for a while until I can find a job and figure out our commute schedule and to figure out which neighborhoods we want to live in.
Here is something crazy to think about, we will have lived in four cities in the past 22 months: Stillwater, Ponca City, Bartlesville and Houston. Even crazier to think about is how in only 11 months we have lived in three of those cities. Less than a year and three moves...good thing we like to travel.

Our New City Skyline

Although we are sad to leave close family and friends, we are also very excited to start this new adventure. We will have so many options of places to go to church, places to buy a house, shopping (Ikea and Target in the same dream!!), eating out and options for me to find a job (most important of course because I will be spending lots of money at Ikea and Target!). Just joking Jesse...or not.

Please be thinking of us as we prepare for this change in our lives and please know that everyone is welcome to come visit us :)

Jesse's B-Day Details with a little Valentines Day on the Side

Jesse requested Lucky Charms for his Birthday breakfast

The Loot!

In the words of Jesse "IF I live to be a 100, then I am already a quarter of the way done." Depressing anyone?

Yummy Paula Dean Red Velvet cupcakes. I would suggest just buying canned frosting, her's was good but did not make for a very pretty looking cupcakes. Notice the one off to the side, I had to scrape off and start over.

Jesse did a good job on these beautiful flowers

Happy Birthday Hubby!

Today is Jesse's 25th birthday. I will post more on the birthday events later, but so far he has had a wonderful day. And he is probably super embarrassed that I am making this post, but oh well....Happy Birthday Sweetie, I love you!

Setting Records

The first of February brought approximately 12 inches of snow here in Bartlsville, OK. Yesterday about 14 inches more snow fell totaling about 26 inches all together so far. Other than setting record snow fall we also set a record low in temperature this morning. A low of -28 degrees was recorded during the early morning which according to one news channel was colder than the North Pole or Alaska! Here are some pictures of the snow day's around our house.

Weather forcast for next week...70 degrees!!! I can't wait!


Just a Saturday Morning with The Pioneer Woman

Saturday morning I met up with my bff, Julie, and battled the crowd to get our books signed from The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Her newest book is titled "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" and talks about how she turned from a city girl to country wife and mother.

My Saturday ended with celebrating a friends birthday. We went to eat at Cattleman's in Oklahoma City. It was yummy! Happy Birthday Clay!
