Ok, Taylor and I have been married for almost six years, and we are moving for the fourth time!! It really stinks. Taylor likes to call it our "two year plan"-whatever that means!!! I am devastated to have to leave our home and neighborhood, I have made great friends here that I am going to miss, and we have just loved it so much. And it has been a whirlwind weekend. We put an offer on a home in Mesa, so we have had our house up for rent. We signed a contract on Saturday at 2:00 and the people needed in by the 12th of July. Well, normally two weeks is enough time to get moved out, but we have had a trip planned to Yellowstone for almost a year, and we leave THURDSAY!!! So we spent all day Sunday packing boxes, and then decided the best way to move would be to pay someone to do it for us- so that is what we did. As expensive as it was, it was sooooo worth it! But to add to that, nothing has been finalized with the house we put our offer on, we aren't even in escrow yet, so we are going to live with my parents until then. It will be a little crazy, but we are so fortunate to have amazing parents who not only let us live with them (two kids and all) but welcome us with open arms!!! Thanks Mom and Dad- We love you!! So it is back to Mesa for now, who knows where we will be in another two years!

This past week I went to Florida to visit my sister and see her new baby, and to help her out a little while she adjusts to having two children. We didn't do a whole lot, we got some shopping in, but we had such a blast. She has been my best friend since we were little, and I have missed her so much since she moved to Florida, so it was great just to spend time with her- without my own kids (luckily I have an awesome husband who watched them while I was gone)! Anyways, I was sad to leave, but I missed my kids more being there than any other trip I've taken without them. I think maybe because I was there with Sarah's kids, rather than on a cruise where there's no kids around! But Sarah and her family are coming to AZ in July for a few weeks, so it will be fun to see her again so soon! I can't wait!
