My Life Right Now

For quite a while we thought that we were staying here in Airdrie. We were led to believe that was the case. So, we found a beautiful house here, fell in love with it and pretty much bought it. The next day we were told that Matt wouldn't be able to keep his job here. It was a pretty huge shock and we were very disappointed. We had finally reached a point in our life where we were settled. We had (or were going to have) our first home, Matt had a great job, we were starting to make good friends, etc. etc. etc. And now we were back to having our lives up in the air. So, we've spent the past few months looking for a new job. It's been stressful! But I think we've finally found something - at least I hope so. I'm excited about it. It will mean another big move, but I think it will be great for our family. We should know by next week what the deal is - then I'll let you know where we are headed.

This weekend my cousin got married and I got to be their photographer. It made me realize how much I've been missing taking pictures. I really do love it and I feel really happy when I'm doing it. I snapped this picture of the temple while I was there. I wanted one to hang in my home - and I just love the way it turned out. I'm excited to make it really big!! And the wedding pictures turned out great too - you can peek here if you want.
And if you know anyone that needs a photographer - feel free to send them my way. haha!

I've really been hating the way I look lately. I know that I just had a baby - but I'm sick of being squishy and mushy. I finally decided it was time to do something, so I got a gym membership. I LOVE it!! I've been going 5 days a week and doing lots of different classes (my favorite is ZUMBA - you have to try it). It's amazing how a good workout makes you feel so much better! I'm super out of shape - but I feel good knowing that I'm changing that. And it's nice to get out of the house too!

Aiden and Dexter are doing good. I'm still adjusting a little bit to having 2 kids - but it's fun. Aiden is at such a funny age right now - he always says the funniest things. And Dexter is getting so big and cute. He's just starting to smile, which I LOVE!!! I'll be sure to put up some new pictures of them soon!

And now, I'm off to bed. Better sleep while I can!

Ooooooh, Kari! I'm aching to know where the next adventure will take you guys! Stinks how the Airdrie thing turned out, but I'm one for a good adventure, so yeah for you! Love the pics you took. You sure you don't want to visit NZ at the beginning of November to take some baby pics? Surely you could use it as an income tax deduction. :) Glad to hear things are falling into place for you guys!

I'm also excited to hear where you're going and as much as it may suck at the moment, I'm sure it will turn out great. Could be worse, you could still be stuck here in Mission Glen like us, right? Your picture of the temple is so gorgeous. I seriously want a copy of it. And I'm glad you're enjoying working out, it feels great, hey?

Hopefully everything turns out great. That sucks about Matt's job as he seemed to really like it when we talked to him October. So sad for the house - hopefully you find one you love even more in your new area.

Oh I hate that unsettled feeling... I bet having it turn out like this will make your next place even better! Good luck!

I LOVE that picture of the temple. I want to buy a copy from you, please!

I have a serious love/hate relationship with the gym. Way to go on being so consistent!
