New Beginnings. .

I am just so thankful and happy for where Justin and I are in our lives right now. We had a wonderful weekend of softball with the fire department and relaxing. It was nice to finally get to spend some time with Justin. I feel like I haven't seen him in weeks! Although he did get a little banged up from playing so many games on Saturday. His knee surgery is in 2 weeks and I think both of us are ready. Hopefully this will correct the problem he is having!

The big news for this week is I am employed again! Finally! And the best part is I don't think I could have found a better job. I will be working for clinic in Anchorage doing front desk/administrative work. There are so many wonderful things about this new job. It is in the medical field which is clearly where I want to be working and this gives me a huge "foot in the door"once I get done with school in less than a year (yay!). The hours are low and the pay is pretty high so I don't have much to complain about! But probably the best part is I will have time to spend with Justin, work on school work and have a little bit of time for myself! Very excited about that! I start this Friday so I will let you all know how it goes!

The weather is beautiful so I am going to head out and enjoy it while I can! =)

And I will finally get to spend time with Justin this weekend! Believe it or not me not working has actually meant that I see Justin less. . Crazy, right? He has been in this class for the fire department since I quit my job and has been at work every single day. But the class is over today and that means that he is off all weekend and I will actually get to spend some time with him. Thank you Jesus!!

The weather has been amazing the last few days. Hard to believe that summer is really coming to an end. I hope the beautiful weather continues for the weekend so we can get out and enjoy the sun!

I went to a new dentist yesterday and I must say I don't think I have ever been so excited about a dentist! The office staff was amazing, the hygienist was a blast and my dentist was super sweet. I really like that they kept me in the loop the whole appointment and let me know everything that was going on. Of course I have pretty good teeth so the dentist is never really an issue for me. However, they did point out that I had some staining on my bottom right side. Stupid smoking. Why did I ever think that was a good idea?!  Now if I can only convince my sweet husband that he should quit then we will finally be a smoke free family! He is working on it though and I guess that's all I can ask for! Have a wonderful weekend everyone and try to stay cool. I see the temps aren't letting up too much on the east coast! xoxo

I have been super busy!

At least that's going to be my excuse for not blogging in over 2 months! How sad it that?! The worst part is I feel like so much has happened but not really. Alaska summers are beautiful as long as it's not raining. Which we have been getting rain almost every day for the past few weeks which is pretty lame. We haven't really gone and done too much lately. We did a 5 mile hike a few weeks ago which was nice. Here is a view of Anchorage from our hike!

And we went to see the Portage Glacier which was amazing! It was really windy out on the water though and it was kind of spur of the moment. Poor Justin had on shorts, flip flops and a t shirt!

A few other happenings.

  • I currently have a 4.0 in college which is pretty awesome. It isn't easy but I know it will be worth it in the end.
  • I am unemployed at the moment. Don't really want to get into too much detail but my job and I found different things important in life and at the end of the day I had to do what was right for Justin and I in the long run. I have a few things I am looking into and will let you all know when I finally start working again. In the mean time, Justin is enjoying home cooked meals and a clean house!
  • Summer is quickly coming to a close to Alaska and this makes me sad and excited at the same time. As beautiful as it is I am almost a little ready for snow! We are looking forward to having a white Christmas this year!!

We miss everyone very much and think of you often! I promise I will try to keep this blog updated with all the interesting (and not so interesting) every day life happenings here in Alaska! xoxo
