Bringing all my blogs together today!

I guess somewhat stupidly, I posted details about something super big coming up in my life on Facebook instead of writing a cliffhanger status and directing everyone here to my blog. Oh well! Lesson learned I guess!

If you did not read it on Facebook already, Tony accepted a job offer in China Lake, CA and will start work at the naval base located there as a Computer Network Defense Specialist. We found out Tuesday morning that he had passed the security clearance/background check and they need him to start July 18th.  Eek! He has a little less than a month left in Utah with me. Time to amp up the packing and get more serious about how we are going to make this happen.

I wish so badly the job was moving us, but it's not. We were thinking to move everything that has been packed to a storage unit so that we can move around a bit more easier and continue packing. I have a baby shower to host and a Pinterest party and I'd rather have a downstairs not filled with boxes when people come over. Part of the problem is that we need his truck and he ordered a part he needed but was sent the wrong one. Hopefully we can get it fixed in the next week or so so we can get these boxes moved out.

I'll join Tony in CA (Ridgecrest to be specific) once he finds us a place to live. We have been looking not super seriously on Zillow the past few months but now we can look seriously. There are 2 houses we really like a lot so we will see what ends up happening. They'd have to be available still when he gets to CA mid-July so he can check them out. Any advice on getting a house? Feel free to send it our way. There is a chance we might just rent something but we'll see what direction the house idea goes.

So there you have it. After 5 years in Utah, I'm heading back to the state I was born in. Granted I grew up in northern CA which is so very different than southern CA but still. Maybe I should get my "CA CHICK" personalized license plate back! Questions? Comments? Concerns? Me too. I have lots. Shoot whatever you want to send me over though and I'll do my best to answer any questions!

You guys! I've gotten to get quite a bit of blogging done lately and there's still more roadtrips to blog about and some crafts but here's what I've got so far!

I went to World Market the other day and found some pretty cute stuff. Of course, owls! among other things.

There's only 5 days left to enter to win dessert for a year from a fun company here in Utah. My mouth drools and I can't wait to go in! 

I got a new niece in May and she's so adorable! It has been fun getting to know her and her personality a bit.

If you live in Utah you may be sick of hearing about the Cavalia show but I got lots of cool pictures when Tony & I went. The show is headed to Portland, Oregon next!

The Everything Food conference was one of the funnest things I did in May. No joke! It was such a fun experience and I look forward to volunteering again next year.

I was able to check out the Utah Valley Parade of Homes one week with my friend Tiffany and it was so crazy cool. If you have not gone yet - it ends on Friday!

Remember - you can still get $5 off a ticket to participate in The Color Run happening August 20th in Salt Lake City. Tell your mom, tell your dad, tell all your friends!

It's been a few years but last weekend Tony and I stopped by City of Rocks national park on our way back from Idaho. It was perfect weather and we enjoyed a short hike. I got some really awesome pictures too.

Why were we in Idaho last weekend? Tony's mom's side of the family had a big reunion honoring their grandpa's 100th birthday! It was such a blast. I'd never been to Albion, ID before but I wouldn't mind going back.

For a belated anniversary trip we headed to Glacier National Park as well as some other cool places in Montana.

One of my favorite places in Montana (okay, they were all my favorite) was this awesome museum. I wish it had been open but we made the most of it!

Stay tuned for another post with more links to some fun things soon!

About this blog

I have quite a few blogs and I just feel like I need to tie them all into one place so this is where I decided that is going to happen. I'll still be blogging on my other blogs but I will link all my posts to this blog so you can easily find them. We'll see how it goes!
