Baby on the move!

Yep, my little 10 month old Olivia is on the move- she is walking!!! I seriously can not keep up with her. She is cruising all over the place, making one mess after another. This is definitely a fun, but tiring age! I am trying all sorts of new activities with her, trying to expose her to new things- but she just doesn't seem to be interested unless it goes in her mouth, which I must say is not the best place for sidewalk chalk. Needless to say, I think I was jumping the gun a little bit on that one.

I am stuck in limbo and I hate it, the hubba wubba applied for a job back home that would move him up in the company and give him a pay raise. I am hesitant to admit that I am now sure if that's what I want to do. I would love to be near my family, but I feel like it has taken me until just now (1 1/2 yrs since we moved to our current town) to finally have a social life, friends, obligations, etc., etc. I am not so sure I want to start all over again, I am not friends with the same people I used to be friends with back home, so if we moved back, I would be starting from square 1 all over again. I also love where we live now, it is so cheap to live here, it's beautiful here with mountains and rivers everywhere, there is virtually no crime and an incredible school dept here.

Theses are pictures I took of the town where I live- It is so breath taking-ly gorgeous here!

I really just want to know what I need to plan for, I hate the "not knowing", and the hubba wubba still has not heard anything on the job since he applied- the job has been closed for application for over a week now! I am losing my mind stressing over this.

On a side note, I scored at the garage sales this week-
  • 2 pairs of Gap jeans for $4
  • huge play dough set with play dough toys $5
  • alphabet and number magnets $1
  • interactive play mat $1
  • steam carpet cleaner $20
  • 2 pairs of Jeans for Olivia .50 cents
  • awesome cat scratcher $2
  • 2 summer outfits for Olivia $2
  • set of thank you cards $1
total = $36.50

getting cool used new stuff = priceless!

Well that's all for now because I really need to get cleaning because I have cousins coming into town tomorrow, I will be back later though to post a recipe for my delicious whole wheat banana pancakes with strawberry topping! I just made them this morning and the hubba wubba even like them which says a lot because he hates it when I want pancakes for breakfast!


  1. Wow, there are so many things in this post that could be right out of my life...

    ...having a baby that walks at 10 months (What? Aren't we suppose to get like a year before they are moving on their own?!?!?)

    ...relocating, or better yet, stuck in the "could we be moving" limbo. Exhausting! We have lived in 3 states in 5.5 years...and the hubs is already itching for another promotion...which would mean another out of state move!

    ...garage sale finds...I love a bargain!

    Since we pretty much are the same person...I will surely be your newest follower! :)

  2. Now that sounds delish! And i understand not wanting to move from that gorgeousness. Every time we moved, I felt this sense of mourning and I always felt a little lost and lonely for a bit of time, especially when the girls were little.

    And what great deals! I used to garage sale shop all the time. It's like a big treasure hunt!

  3. Saying HEY from Friday Follow.
    Of course we follow you through GFF, please make sure to stop in and do the same for us :)

    Psss.... We also have an iPad giveaway going on right now 7/2!

  4. Good luck with the job thing! It is gorgeous where you live! I remember how bad I wanted to leave Denver, and now that I've been in CT for over 3 years, there are things about Denver that I miss SO much. But I know that if we moved back there, I'd be missing CT. I guess the grass is always greener!

  5. Ohhhh it is really lovely where you are now. However it works out, though, you can make life beautiful wherever you are. :)

    Have a fabulous weekend and try not to stress! Get out and enjoy some of that big beautiful sky country. :)
