Congraaaaatulations!!! (And some BIG news!)

Drew deserves a HUGE congratulations!!

Why, you ask?

He got a promotion! He will no longer be a Territory Representative for his company, but a Marketing Associate. He went and interviewed a few weeks back and 6 people interviewed him there and once he got home 2 more people interviewed him by phone. And apparently they LIKED HIM!! I am so proud of him.

Sooo, what's the big news? Well, this means we are moving so he can work at their headquarters.

Which is 1,135 miles from where we live now.



















That's right! We're packing our bags and heading out to North Carolina!

Umm, does that seem crazy to anyone else? So basically, I'm going to have a baby and then a couple of weeks later we have to drive to North Carolina. And LIVE there.

Whoa.

It's so worth it so that Drew can have a job that he loves. He is so excited (he's so cute when he get excited) that I can't help but be excited, too. I'm just not looking forward to starting my life all over again. New ward, new friends, new home.

Anyone from North Carolina? Any advice for us?

Congrats you guys! That's great! Chris' aunt lives there right now. What part are you moving too? I think they are in Mooresville...but if that's close to where you'll be living, I can give you there info.

We are VERY excited for you guys!!!

My mission president is now the temple president in Raleigh. President Scott. (It would be great to see him and Sister Scott!)

And, I have a friend serving in the Raleigh mission. I'm pretty sure its a huge mission. I don't think she's served in Greensboro yet. Kristi Dodge.

First off, Yay for finding a job you like. Boo for having to pack so soon after having a baby. Yay for having an excuse to have people help you pack! Boo for ruining plans of living close together. Yay for Luke turning 2 and all those cute pictures of him on your blog (the one where he's in his suit and holding a toy looks like he's about to propose, I have to do a double take every time!)! Congraaaaaatulations!

Hey! That is wonderful!! I have lived in NC for all my 40-something years. I love the easy drive to beaches or mountains (don't try to do both on the same weekend!). I enjoy the lack of severe weather/natural hazards in central NC. Lots to go-see-do! You are going to LOVE IT!
