It was the year 2007 and I graduated from Texas Tech University. I left college for London, England and then shortly moved to Houston, TX. I certainly never thought I would move back to Lubbock to where I had family, my sorority and my alma mater. GOD had bigger plans for Shaun and I and we certainly wanted to be closer to family since we had Olivia. Did we expect to move this year? No! However, Shaun had an interview this summer with a bank and before we knew it he had an offer and we were selling our home. That meant I would no longer be working in the oil and gas industry and for the time being I would be a stay at home mom while blogging on the side.
The last two weeks have been very interesting for me since I no longer go to work and instead I take our beautiful child on morning walks and watch sesame street in our pjs. I still don’t know what I have in store for me and I’m weighing my options at the moment but I do enjoy spending every minute with Olivia.
Two days before we moved to Lubbock I was on my way to pick up my father in law and his fiance from the airport. I decided to take a short cut through downtown Houston to avoid traffic. I was going through an intersection when I was hit on the passenger side causing my vehicle to flip. With the help of some gentlemen I was able to get out of my upside down vehicle and call my loved ones letting them know I was all right! It’s been almost 4 weeks since that accident and it’s been quite adjustment not having my own vehicle to tow me around. No worries I should be getting my new vehicle this next week!
Things I am looking forward to in our new city!
- Family – lots and lots of relatives
- College football and tailgaiting
- Getting back involved with my sorority (kappa alpha theta)
- Starting a new baking business A Glass Jar
- Staying at home with Olivia
- Neighbors who actually come to talk to you
- Dinner parties
- Date nights (we have lots of babysitters)
- Cold Winters
Things have been quiet on here on the blog for the past month but I am hoping that I will catch my groove soon with this move.
