This is me with my new short hair. I love it! At first, it was a big change from being so long, but I'm glad that I did it. It is so much easier to maintain like this. I cut it this short because I donated my hair to Locks of Love. This is the 2nd time that I've done this so I am really glad that I did.
So, everyone else is blogging these days - why not me? Well now I am.
I guess I will start on a little background of our life. My husband is Michael. We met working out at Gold's Gym through friends. We became friends and hung out every week for about a year. Eventually we both needed a place to live, so we decided to get an apartment together to share(2 bedroom/2 bath). Then about a month into living together it clicked- and we can't be separated ever since. This was in 2002 and we got married on June 11, 2005.
We tried for over 3 years now to have a child, but nothing has come of it yet. We started fertility treatment, but had to stop when I left my job in October 2008. Now, we are taking a break and hope that maybe God will answer our prayers and it will happen naturally.
We have a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house in Hutto that we moved into in March 2008. We are still in the process of getting it to look the way we want to, but we love it!
Life is so full these days. Michael works full time as Maintenance Coordinator in Austin. I work full time as a Legal Assistant at an Attorney's office in downtown Austin. I am and Independent AVON Sales Rep and that keeps me busy at least one day out of the week. I am also going through RCIA to become a part of the Catholic Church this April and that is every Thursday night. We are working with the Father to get married through the Church this May, and we will have to attend classes and workshops starting in February 2009 for at least one day out of the week. And- to top it off I am attempting to take some classes online to get my Real Estate License to have it "in my back pocket"- as Marion put it - in case I ever find myself without a job again. Plus, I will try to sell some houses on the side to make extra money.
So, as you can see, God has been really good to us. And we really can't ask for anything more. We know that our time will come to be parents. We are just enjoying our family, and friends as much as we can. We hope to travel soon - including: Hawaii, Washington D.C., Colorado or New Mexico to snowski, a cruise to Mexico or Bahamas, and many more...
Keep tuned for updates!
