New Year, New Place, New Jobs, New House.....Here's To New Beginnings!

Wow, two posts in one day. I am getting some serious work done (on my blog at least). I know I have a few blog posts about how we live in NWA, and have new jobs. Well, there is more "newness" to come!

At the beginning of the year, they started building our first ever house!! We are so excited and can't wait to be in our new home. We have lived in an apartment going on two years now (I'll be going on three years), and it is just a hard place to call home. Especially with us moving twice in the past two years. I just feel as though I am cooped up, and it is hard to spend time outside when you do not have a yard. Hey, some people can do it and I give them props! There are many people that love apartment living. It does have its Pros, such as: not a lot of space to clean, you do not have to mow the lawn or water the grass, if something is wrong inside the apartment just call the front desk and they will send maintenance over, you have a gym, pool, etc. Apartment living has been good for us, but we are in a new stage of life now where we would like a place where we can come home, and feel like we are home. I also cannot wait to meet new neighbors, and possibly develop friendships with people just right down our road.

Here are a few pictures of the progress of our new house. I will keep you updated very frequently I'm sure. We have already been out there so many times since they have started the house. It should be finished toward the end of April with weather pending. You never know how the weather is going to act here, especially January/February.

It may not look too exciting, but we sure we excited when we saw that the dirt was moved around! :)


Our foundation before they poured the concrete

It's weird how it looks so small without the frame up!

Stay tuned!
