I wanted to give everyone an update on our house search! We have decided to look for a home in The Colony area (between Lewisville and Frisco off 121). We looked last weekend and are going out with our realtor again this weekend to look, hopefully we'll find what we like and make an offer before too long!!! Keep us in your prayers....this can all get a bit overwhelming, but its still lots of fun! I'll let you know how it goes this weekend!

P.S. I was tagged by Holly and I promise I'll reply soon!

Time has creeped up on us and its now time for us to start looking at buying our 1st home! Our lease is up right after Christmas and now that I know where I will be working we know where we'd like to buy a home!!!!! (I took the Family Practice job, by the way). So, as exciting as that is, its also really scary. Its a lot going on at one time....finishing and graduating PA school, taking my PA certification exam, looking for a home, moving, and starting a new job....and its all during the holidays!!!!! Obviously, thinking about it all makes me a little stressed, so I try to just think about one at a time! Keep us in your prayers as we embark on many new and exciting things in our life!!!!!

Well, its official...I am terrible at predicting how things are going to happen. If you know me, you know that I'm a planner! I try to plan everything and usually that just creates stress for me and frustration for my husband! Well, I was all planning for my wonderful upcoming job as an OB/GYN PA given the offer I received a month or so ago and what do you threw me a curveball. Another job offer came along that isn't what I thought I wanted, but seems to be much more perfect for me than I could have imagined.

What is it? Well, its working as a Family Practice PA for a small clinic in Plano. Its a wonderful place to work and it feels almost like a little family. The physician there is amazing and so sweet and its the type of place that thinks about you as a person and not as just an employee. They made me an offer that was very comparable to my other offer, but included a wonderful bonus program that would make my potential earnings much greater. They are also much more flexible and willing to pay for part of my maternity leave! Its also very close to where Josh and I want to buy a house and very close to our church and friends as well.

So, after making a pros and cons list and talking it over with God (and those closest to me in my life), it looks like the Family Practice job is the one I will accept.

Maybe God was just trying to teach me that I don't always get to do the planning.....HE has a plan for me as well!!!! :-)
