The Grand Ol'Tour...of Texas! most, if not all of you know, Ty and I have been hoping to make a move to Texas to be closer to our family. And as of's OFFICIAL! Ty has been offered a tremendous opportunity to work for Encompass Home Health, and the position is everything he was looking for and will also provide mucho room for growth! Which is just so exciting!

Now here's the real kicker... Ty's start date is July 6th. What? Yeah, that's right July 6th. As in less than a month from now. So moral of the story is that we're some busy folks over here and are doing a lot with a little amount of time!

On July 1 we'll be on the road making the trek to what the next chapter of our lives holds. And while we're SO crazy excited, we're also fully aware of what we're leaving behind. (Ugh, I don't even like saying it that way...) How about we're fully aware of what we won't get to see every day...because there's no way we're leaving it all behind.

We've both done a LOT of growing up here, from college to meeting one another, to falling in love and getting married, and all along the way - making some of the most treasured friendships we've ever had. So, you better know full-well this isn't the last you've seen of us!

To commemorate the occasion, I thought I'd take you on a tour of some of the things you'll get to see when (and it is only a matter of when) you all come out to visit!!!

Y'all ready for the tour????

Bluebonnets - these aren't the state flower for nothing! Look at how blue that sky is!

Kingwood - this is the greenbelt where Ty and I will be running, or walking (let's be honest) and no joke, it really is this pretty. I've walked across this bridge many times already. Did I mention this is right by an awesome golf course and lake? Love it!

Right past the greenbelt above, lies my Dream House. FOR REALS. I've seen it in person many times...I've made us drive through this particular development pretty much every time we've gone to visit my family:) Oh and wouldn't you know it, here's a picture for you all to see! It makes me want to go make a dress out of some green velvet drapes, real bad!

Here's where I'll be doing my shopping! The Houston Galleria is unlike any other shopping mall I've been too, it's out of control y'all! (I won't do that in real life, I promise) See those towers sticking out of the large, lower, and wider buildings? That would be the Westin. Yes, they have a Westin built into the mall, cause it's just that big! And see that skyline???

Here's a better view of the skyline - you're already excited to come and visit, huh?

There's SO much more I could show you, but I think I'll save it for many upcoming posts! As you can imagine, I'm going to try my best to keep this blog updated throughout the move and it may get a little frantic from time to time, but I hope you'll keep reading and keep in touch!

To all you AZ readers - we're going to miss you! Don't y'all be strangers now! We're expecting many a visit:)
