I can't believe how LONG it has been since my last post, I am so blog-barrassed!! I figure most people may have forgotten I even have a blog.  So what have we been up to in the past month?  Well for me, it has been work, work, work, and then more work.  What?! That's the same word!  In the middle of December, my company bought part of another company, which is good for my company that we are doing well and growing, but the work load that has resulted from this acquisition has been insane!  We've added 2 people because of it.  Pretty much since then Casey has cooked every meal during the week (minus Wednesday's when we eat out before church), done laundry and dishes, and not complained when his wife comes home tired.  Such a great husband!  In the midst of the work craziness, my department moved on the other side of the floor, so packing/unpacking was super fun.  I got a small promotion that went into effect the beginning of January, so when we moved I said goodbye to the cubicle life and hello to an office!!  I'm kinda sad to leave the cubicle next to my friend Leslie because it was so easy to pop up to talk to one another or just talk to one another while we worked, but it's nice to have a window and the whole floor doesn't have to hear every phone call you make.  Haven't had time to get things unpacked and decide where they need to go, but here are a few pictures:

The crazy work load and the longer hours will get better with time (this is what my boss keeps telling me to make us both feel better).  The weekends have been spent relaxing and getting things done around the house!  The fixing of the sag is complete, so the search for carpet has begun.  I think we are close to finalizing that and saying see ya later to the old/stained carpet.  A couple Fridays ago Casey and I got out the fire pit my brother in-law Joel had given me for Christmas and we made S'mores!  (I love S'mores so much that this was the reason I asked for one for Christmas)  The night was kind of chilly, so that made it the perfect weather!

Myself enjoying a S'more

The s'mores were delicious (even with the JUMBO marshmallows) and the company was delightful!  I definitely look forward to more fire pit nights in our backyard together!
