A Busy Time

I have not been very commited to this blog lately. Things have been crazy and are finally settling down a bit, but will still be very busy for sure.
We finally moved into our own apartment and are starting to get unpacked and everything. It is a great place that has 2 bedrooms, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, new carpet, and a fireplace! It is, also, located 5 minutes from both of our jobs. I am starting to get into the habit of going to my new job and the duties that I have there. I feel very blessed to have been given this job. It is pretty ideal.
Garrett and I just got back from Oregon on Friday. We were there visiting some of Garrett's family for Thanksgiving. We had a great time and are now back in the real world and are both back at work today.
This past week I bought my first maternity clothes. So exciting! They are pretty cute and feel much more comfortable than when I was trying to fit into my regular clothes. haha :)
I definitely have a little baby bump developing and I love it! I am 18 weeks now and have been feeling the baby move a bit, which is awesome!
We will be able to find out the sex of the baby in about 2 weeks...I can't wait!
I do have a picture of my baby bump at 18 weeks, so I will be posting that soon.
Until then...have a great week and I will leave you with some things I am thankful for this season~

1. God saving me and pursuing me
2. A loving and godly husband
3. This little miracle inside me
4. A supportive family
5. Garrett and I both having jobs during this tough economy
6. A church where I can worship, serve, and grow
7. Food and shelter
8. God always providing and always working in my life
9. The future
1o. Love

Getting Settled

I haven't written in awhile. Garrett and I have been so busy with the big move back to Boise. We have been here 2 weeks now and we are finally getting settled a bit. We are living with my grandma for the time being while we save for a deposit on an apartment. We thought we might need to stay with her awhile while I looked for a job. As many of you know, I looked for a job like crazy in Moscow for 5 months and only had one interview. It was not a success. Well, within 5 days of being in Boise I got a job! It is only by God that I recieved a job so quickly and to top it off it is the kind of job that I was wanting. I am a runner at a law firm and work 20 hours a week. I work 1-5 pm Mon-Fri and have all holidays off. It is great!
God has really provided through all of this and I just praise Him for it!

As far as the pregnancy goes, I will be 15 weeks tomorrow and am feeling much better. Morning sickness is finally going away! Yay! :)
I still need to find a new doctor here in Boise and I need to do that soon so I can have my next appointment within the next couple of weeks.

Anyways, that is about it for now! Just very happy to be back in Boise. :)
