Hey y'all!

We're moving to Texas.

When husband and I were engaged I remember asking him, "Do you ever want to move back to Houston?"

{His whole immediate family lives there and he lived there for 3 years.}

His response, "Maybe.  In the future if things work out that way.  But I'm happy to be here in AZ!"

That was approximately 5 months ago and already we have put our house up for sale and have made the plans to move!

So why are we moving to Houston?
Well...for lots of reasons. 
But mainly for husband's job.

Poor guy is scared to death that my family hates him and think he's "taking me away" from them.

But I assure all y' was mainly MY decision to move.
Obviously, we wouldn't be going if it wasn't for his job.
But I had ultimate VETO power.

It is all kinds of crazy though!
The weekend we are planning on moving out there will be exactly a year from when he first asked me out.
And so therefore, we will be moving there a little less than a year from when we first met.

Crazy how much can change in just a year.
A year ago from now I had no idea that I would be moving to Texas.
And with a husband!

Anyway, we spent 2 weeks in Houston this summer so I could get to know his family and get to know the area, "just in case" we ever thought of moving there :)  

Well, now we actually are.
And we're super excited for this adventure!

Now I just gotta go find me some sassy boots :)
I'm thinking these will do!
