Hurry Up and Wait... Life of the Army

So if you haven't noticed I have been kinda la de da lately.
And it has nothing to do with blogging.
I love it,
It is a fantastic outlet for what I create.
Also it is nice to get some randomness out there too.

But for the past couple of weeks my personal life has been stressful.
If you didn't know my husband is in the Army.
He has just gotten off of a stateside deployment.
Which left us kind of in a lurch.
We could have gone back to his civilian job.
Which is also working for the Army.
But we would have taken a MAJOR pay cut.
So we put in to go AGR, which stands for Active Guard Reserve.
Fancy words for saying active duty on the reserve side of things.
SSG was picked for the program.
But he didn't get a job offer.
SSG found out there were 30 jobs and he was 41st on the list.
So we waited, prayed, and hoped that by some miracle at least 11 people would turn down jobs.
However a 6 a.m. phone call answered our prayers.
He got an assignment.
To make matters even better.
We actually get to stay in Utah!

Another piece of news that is just WOW!
We were approved for a home loan!!!
Can I get a high five here???
The best is looking for a house.
Going into a house and trying to picture it being ours.

So this is why I haven't done much crafting.
I would rather show ya something that is awesome!
How about let's say we take a break until after New Year's?  
That way I can get back into the groove of things.
Much love and happiness to you during this holiday season.
I look forward to talking to you in the 2012!!!

Also I have some new sponsors and we will be having a giveaway after the first of the year!
Also maybe I will be opening my very own Etsy shop!
We will have to do a giveaway with that as well!

Happy New Year - what a fun way to start. Let me know about the give away - I'll even write the whole darn post for you (moving is NO fun, at least for me!) if it would be helpful! Let me know when you get your Etsy shop up and running and I'll feature you on my ever-growing blog ;)
