{ Life update | New job & new home! }

Omg guys so the last 6 months have been so hectic for us. From finding out we are pregnant, going to all the doctor visits, looking for a new place to move to, going to showings every almost weekend and just working our full time jobs, it’s been a very stressful time in our life. Kind of a messy time of our life. I sort of compare it to that awkward stage where you are growing out your hair and it’s not quite long but it’s not short either it’s just kind of there and kind of a mess. That’s how life has been feeling for us the past few months. 

Trying to get everything figured out all at once has been just a lot to deal with! Besides that we have had other personal things in our families going on that have been taking up a part of our mind and also not making things any easier! In the midsts of it all I also had to find a new job unexpectedly because I was told the company I was working for is no longer going to be in business.  All I can say is that things are never permanently bad, I know this was just that “awkward, in between” stage and it wouldn’t last forever.  Luckily for me finding a new job didn’t take long and I was hired to work for an amazing company less than 12 hours after being “layed” off.  I do have to tell you, even though everyone around me was freaking out about me losing my job, I stayed calm and positive the whole time because I believed in myself and knew that things would get better. Cody and I usually always have our shit together so this was kind of a funky time for us.  I always try to see the positive in all and not let stress get the best of me, especially now that I’m pregnant and I shouldn’t be stressing. I think that since I got pregnant I haven’t been as stressed by things as I used to be. Before I always stressed over anything and gave myself anxiety. I feel like I cope much better now with the stress because I have to. I obviously want to make sure my baby is safe and that kind of forces me to be more optimistic and laid back. 

Cody and I have had a lot on our plate the past few months and things have not been very easy, but we are so excited for the end result and to see the outcome of this all! Knowing we finally found the perfect home for our new little family and bringing our little baby into this world will make us understand why we fought so hard to get here.  I really hope you guys realize also that bad times don’t last forever and that it should only be motivation for better days ahead. I know that we don’t have it bad, we never did, but sometimes you just feel like you lose control of your life and that’s when I rely on God to guide us and just lead the way. I don’t know what or who you believe in but I think that whatever or whoever it is they will always help you get to where you need to be as long as you don’t give up and are open to it.  

I hope you guys appreciate me sharing a little bit of our life with you and what we’ve been up to the past few months. I also hope this inspires you to never give up and push through that awkward hair cut stage you’re in because eventually you will see the result you worked hard towards achieving and it’ll all be worth the struggle in the end. 

With all that being said I’m so proud to tell you guys, we have made it through the moving process (let me tell you, that was not easy!) and are officially homeowners! This is so exciting for us and we could not be happier with our new home, it is exactly what we wanted and we can’t wait to make some amazing memories here for the next few years to come! Look out for some home decor and home update posts in the near future if you’re into that stuff! 

  We had a lot more stuff to move than we thought!
