Lubbock Home

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.

ENJOY ~ Meagan

    Best of luck to you! I’m so sorry we didn’t get to meet while you were in Houston but I’m sure our paths will cross again. It’s so nice to be close to family, I know you must be so glad – and the cooler weather! Oh, I’m so jealous! ;)

    Welcome to your new home. I left a very lucrative marketing position with a major firm within a year after having my daughter. It is a really tough decision but I didn’t see why I had her and then sent her away the majority of the day. Congratulations to you on a really tough decision! And a new home! It’s beautiful.

      Thanks so much Sarah. At least I have a while to decided if I will stay at home or not. I really like my time with her right now.
