So how long has it been since I have updated last? I don’t even know. I am going through my off again portion of my on again off again blogging regime. Each time I go through long periods of time without wanting to update I always try to pin point why I stopped blogging. Most of the time it is motivation (or the lack there of). But this time I think I know what it is:
Brady and I still have iPhone 5’s that are 8 gb. Apple doesn’t even make a phone now that is less than 32 gb. Anyway, we have managed for so long with 8 gb, but the older our phone gets, the less storage it seems to have. So what I am getting to is I do not have enough storage to take pictures. If I don’t take any pictures I don’t want to post anything. For some reason I just feel that posts without pictures aren’t as fun. Whether that is true or not, I am not sure, but it’s how I feel.
So to bad so sad, I am actually going to force myself to give an update without any pictures. Here it goes!
We have been living in Wilmington for almost 4 months now. It took us 2 whole months to find a home, which now we have! (Oh hey, I do have one picture!)
There it is. Isn’t it cute? We live right downtown, just a block or so away from the start of the downtown boardwalk. Our neighborhood is beautiful and we love the area we live in. We live on the main floor of this house, and someone else lives upstairs. It is kind of a funky layout, but we really like it now that we are settled in. One of these days, when I get my memory issue figured out, I will do a home tour and post it on here.
Just before we got our house at the beginning of April, I got a job! I am working as an administrative assistant for a small construction company here. I am really enjoying it! It definitely isn’t what I want to be doing for the rest of my life, but I really get a long well with the owner, and am enjoying learning about the construction field.
Brady has been working on some WordPress work lately. iOS has been a bit tricky to get started with, but we are excited for the opportunities he has been getting and for when he will be able to be mostly/fully doing iOS work.
We love it here. Our neighborhood is great. We love our house. And we love our ward. Each week I just feel so grateful that we have them.
Our best friends here are the Stainbacks. They are AMAZING! Seriously we love them. They are an older couple who have a few grand children. Their oldest grandchild is coming home from his mission in June. Anyway, we get along with them so well. They are sweet and as southern as can be. We love it!
We had another younger couple who we really got along with, the husband actually went to my high school, but was a couple years older than me, and his wife is from Blackfoot. Anyway they just barely moved back to Utah and we are pretty sad about it.
Luckily we have had a few other couples who we are just starting to get to know. And just last week at a relief society event, I had one of the presidency’s daughters come and introduce herself to me. Her, her husband, and their little boy just moved in with her parents for the summer. They are just staying there while they look for a home in Fayetville, which is about 2 hours away. We decided to go out together this past weekend and had the best time! We even got to play games with them after. We haven’t really had a chance to play games at all here, and anyone who really knows us knows how important game nights are!
Anyway, we are slowly, but surely making friends. And what I love the most about it is they are all from our ward. I haven’t really ever been in a ward where people reach out to us the way that they have here. It has been amazing to see.
Oh I have a calling as a relief society teacher. I wasn’t super pumped for it at first, but these relief society sisters in my ward are absolutely incredible, so I have loved being a part of that. Brady just got a calling today, but hasn’t been sustained yet so I better not put what it is.
So there it is. My update for what we have been doing for the past 3 months. We have had quite a few events come up, some that I will hopefully blog about in the future, but for now, this will just have to do.
