Big Changes...........

your looking at the newest student at Utah State University!  Go Aggies!!
Yep - its true - i've registered for my first semester of college EVER.  I'm 34 years old and staring from scratch.  Kinda crazy i know - but i've been in the Mortgage industry for over 15 years and had always planned on returning to that when my kids were old enough and in school.  I could make my own schedule and still do some from home.  Well - thats not an option anymore with the economy and the route that the mortgage industry has gone - its to cut throat and the rules and guidelines are changing daily.  I still have my liscense but won't be doing much with it.  I'm going into secondary education - so i can still have the same schedule as my kids and get good insurance!  Wish me luck.

The second change is WE ARE MOVING!  We are in the process of purchasing a beautiful home in Honeyville - which is about 25 minutes north of where we live now.  A much more remote area with alot more land and peace and quiet!
ALot more room for the kids to run and play and for us to spend more time as a family.  I will share the inside later - before and after's.  We are re-carpeting and painting and doing some new counter tops.  But it's a fun home with a layout we will have to adjust too. Here at our house - everything is on one level - there - everything is split between three levels.  So things will function differently - in a good way I think - we won't be on top of each other all of the time.  So WoW!  And if that werent enough...............

We are getting a puppy.   We went and saw them last night............trying to decide between the yellow male Lab or the yellow female.  We went with the intentions of getting the female - but Dean liked the personality of the male better - so in a few weeks we will be the new mama and papa's over here!  Which brings me to this layout i did of Buddy - we miss him sooooooooo much and i wanted the picture to be the main focal point - i used the Lovely line by Lily Bee Designs.  Here is a link to the blog post i did about the layout!


So thats it - my life is going to do a 360 in the next few months.  KInda scared - kinda excited for some change and a new start!

hugs
Brenda

I started crying when I saw the layout I remember the story of Buddy and today I have to take our Sweet Emma to the vet she is about 12 years old and has a growth on her paw and seems to be in pain and she didn't want to eat yesterday so I knew something was not right. She is a black lab who we got through a rescue organization when she was about 2.
Anyways congrats on the new house, starting school and getting a new puppy!

I'm so proud of you, Brenda! You are going to be an excellent student & I really think you'll like going to USU. I had a great experience there. :) Also, that's great news about the house! Sounds like we are both going through the process! Hey, sorry we weren't able to get together while I was up here. We were trying to fit too much in - - -visiting too many people/family members in one day. I'll tell you more later. Love your guts, C

Those pictures of Baylee and your Dad are priceless!
Even though I will always be a little mad at you for moving (not really mad, just sad) I am so happy for your family, it will be such a great place for them to grow up. Also, you will be an awesome student!!

Wow!! So many changes - I had no idea. You will love living in Honeyville - I grew up in Garland (in fact my dad is the mayor of Garland now) and went to Bear River....fun times.

Also - USU!! Kevin and I graduated from there - you'll love it and I'm so proud of you for taking that on with kids.

Congrats and good luck in all you do - we'll miss seeing you around MemoryWorks :)
