Montana Finally!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Well we have been in our new house for about 6 weeks, but it is still a jumble. We were not able to move in until after my husband's new teaching job started because the closing date kept getting pushed back. We had to live in a hotel room for about a week with 4 kids and my parents (at least we had a two room suite, but still)!

It is finally starting to settle down, and I am trying to get back into the good habits of exercise and eating healthy. My oldest (babysitter) decided to go to public school this year so I have to get the younger two to watch the baby. But the baby is going to be three in a few months so they are doing ok playing with her now. Still, some days are harder than others and getting my exercise time has been challenging. Honestly, though, I have not been as adamant about having it. Fixing that little by little.

Our house is wonderful and we are really enjoying our new town. Our church is great and we are starting to meet people. We can't believe we already had a first snow (Oct 3), but we are looking forward to the adventure of winter. At least I have the best mother-in-law who bought the kids all new snow boots!!

The kids are enjoying living here and starting up activities like 4-H and Girl scouts. And of course we are adopting a cat, which we have all been waiting for a long time.

We praise God everyday for His continued blessings! Even when it is stressful, we know we are where He wants us to be. And we are grateful!!

    I lived in Billings while going to college for a quarter there. It was a beautiful place.

    Congratulations on getting into your house. We got our first real snow yesterday. We had it twice before, but it melted almost as soon as it fell.

Montana 2

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Well, we are moving in three days. Saturday is the truck loading, but our house isn't supposed to close for about two weeks so we are travelling around to visit family on the west coast until then! My family is close to where we are now so I will take the kids there while my husband and his step-dad drive the stuff to a storage unit in MT. Then we will meet in Oregon to visit hubby's family for another week. Hopefully at that point our house will close and we can move in in time for school??!!??!! If not, well, I guess we will have a different adventure, either way we feel so blessed to be able to do all of this! We are excited about what God has in store for us and our prayer has been for Him to prepare a place for us! I think that prayer is being answered!! I will check in when I can, but my computer access and time will be limited for a while! Keep checking on me just in case:)

I can't wait to get back on track with exercising, there is so much going on I think I am probably burning the same amount of calories!! But I want the routine back. It will happen!! Just like everything else, we have decided that this whole thing is the "faith and patience" adventure. We are learning to trust God in His timing and wait for the blessings as He delivers them. Unbelievable!!
Keep sparking in the mean time!!

    Enjoy your adventure. I would love to go to Oregon; that is where I grew up and my family still lives there. Have fun.

Well, my husband got a job in Montana after all! He will be teaching math at a high school. We are very excited and we have been trying to do this since last year! We went on a trip up to the new town, which is very small. We were planning on renting a house for the first year, but it is very difficult to find one, so we are trying to buy instead. This is very exciting and stressful because we have never bought a house before!! And doing everything long distance is interesting. But, while we were visiting we found a house that we like, so now it all comes down to timing! We will be very busy for the next few weeks, so I will only be around a little bit. I am trying to eat right and exercise, but it is so crazy! I will check in when I can! Keep up the sparkin'!!

Surprise: New size!

Monday, March 26, 2012

I went shopping and found a really cute skirt. They didn't have my size, or so I thought (Out of size16). I decided to try a 14 anyway, even though the skirt is straight (not my typical style due to hips from 4 babies). Well it fit and I was so excited I had to buy it immediately! I haven't been this size since before my son was born in 2005 (so that means early 2004 was the last time I wore a 14)!! Well, just thought I'd share! And say keep at it everyone, it works!!

Can't wait to be overweight!?

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Well I finally broke 180!! I have been stuck for a while, but finally made it! So of course my next goal is to get to 174, which will put me in the overweight range instead of obese! I never thought I would be happy to be overweight, but I can't wait!! I only have a few pounds to go! Keep it up and prayers to everyone striving to be overweight (instead of obese)!!
