Hi There!

Hi new (and old!) friends! I'm so glad you stopped by my little blog. I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner today to meet some new peeps.

My name is Jennifer and I've been blogging for just about six months now. I started the blog as a creative outlet to write about my newish marriage, crafts, learning to be like Christ, recipes, my addiction to Pinterest, and other random thoughts.

My husband and I have been married just over two years, and every day is an adventure.

No kids yet but we do have two sweet dogs and one of these days we'll get around to having children!

Making real, genuine friends is tough--I'm looking forward to meeting some new ones!

Midweek Confessions--May!

Ugh. I am such a blogging slacker. I seem to get in ruts and I don't know what to write about so I just don't even try. Does anyone have any suggestions for that?

Anyway--Midweek Confessions never fail to make me happy, so here goes!

-We have been searching for a house to rent, and it is oh-so-frustrating. We looked at one the other day, and I honestly don't think it had even been vacuumed since the last tenants moved out. Really? What makes you think I want to rent from a landlord who can't even be bothered to vacuum the property before showing it?

-Speaking of houses, we still have almost two months until we'll be moving, and our house is a disaster! Between Josh running two businesses (anyone need a home inspection or lawncare?), our kitchen table looks like an office threw up all over it.

-I currently am missing half of one of my front teeth. I look like such a dork! I broke it when I was 11, at the time, the dentist was able to reattach the broken piece and do a root canal. Last week one of the babies and work knocked me in the teeth with her head--and crack! I hate hate hate the dentist, and am dreading getting it fixed--but so thankful that worker's compensation is covering it!

-I dislike change so much. I hate change at work, at church, at home... I generally adjust pretty well after the change happens, but dread it up terribly until that moment.

-I have a secret! I have a new job that I will be starting in June! I've been keeping it quiet because I didn't want my current company to find out too soon; but they already found out anyway. I am currently an office manager at a preschool, which I love, but there's not much opportunity for growth in my current company. I accepted a position as an office manager for a charter elementary school. The school is brand new (opening in August) and I am thrilled to be part of their team!

Look at the fancy new button E made for Midweek Confessions! Her blog is all new and spiffy, go check it out!
