Howdy Pardner.... (Is That How You Say It?)

Do you know that I did not wish one person a "Hoppy Easter" this year? Quite tragic. I believe last year I had a blog post with that terrific play on words. So, for old times sake, I hope you had a (wait for it...) Hoppy Easter. Done and done.

The past week has been insane. Not for me, but for my husband. And since many of you have asked for an update, here goes: We decided last week that we were going to start searching outside of Tulsa. Michael hadn't received many calls from potential jobs and the market has been pretty dead in general. So last Monday (a week ago yesterday) he decided to search in Dallas. Met with a head hunter on Wednesday and they were able to get him a job interview that afternoon. He showed up and realized the CEO of the company was the dad of one of his childhood friends. Wow! So Michael had his interview and drove back to Tulsa. When he was 30 minutes away from our house, he received a call requesting a second interview on Friday. In Dallas. Oops! I was off work on Friday so the two of us drove back to Dallas together and he had his second interview. Came back to Tulsa, spent Easter with my parents (hooray!!!!) and then found out yesterday he received the job!! Which means...

I'm about to become a Texan.

I'm freaking out, man. This all happened so fast. Michael is ridiculously excited, I'm cautiously excited, and Thumbs is just beside herself. I guess I shouldn't say cautious, but this is just the beginning for us. Now we need to sell our house, find me a job, buy a new house, etc. Crazy. Oh and did I mention he starts TOMORROW!? Yes, tomorrow.

We are going to clean our house this weekend, take some pictures, and then try to sell it. Our dream home. It's definitely a bittersweet feeling, I thought this house would see one of our kiddos and possibly two. But! I'm not going to lie, I am uber, UBER excited about a fresh start in a new place. I think it's going to be great!

That's all for now. If you or someone you know wants a beautiful home (yes it's my opinion, leave me alone), which is only one year old let me know!!! We'd much rather sell it to a friend or a friend of a friend than some complete stranger.

Have I mentioned that I am going to really, really miss Tulsa? Because I am. So much.

(I went to the Death Cab for Cutie concert on Sunday. Loved it, per usual. So here's a fab DC song for you to enjoy...)

Don't let the "becoming a Texan" part overwhelm you. You can keep your dual (trual?) stateship forever if you want to. You can take the Tulsa/Fort Smith out of the girl... :-)

Yay Yay Yay!!! I'm so happy for you guys. You are going to love Dallas and how exciting to move to a new place. I know it's scary, but still so fun! Kyle and I have always wanted to move, but never did and obviously never will now that I'm preggo. So have fun and enjoy!

Tell Michael (even though he doesn't know me from Adam) that I said congrats!

First, the first Easter I don't wish someone a Hoppy Easter will be a sad one for me.

And, YAY!!!! I'm so glad he found a job! How exciting for you guys to start a new adventure in a new place!! I hope you have good luck finding a job and selling your house! You should give me info on the house because Lee and I are looking and I'm sure it's fabulous!

Hey a while ago one of my wife's friends sent her something from you blog. She found it witty and has read it ever since. Congratulations on the job. Texas can only make you a better person. Texas makes everyone a better person. Tell Mike congratulations too.

We are so excited for you and Mike! I totally understand the bittersweet part and things happening really fast. I really hope to get back to Dallas so we can be neighbors! :) Let me know if I can help in anyway. We love you guys and will be praying for your transition the next few weeks.

Hey! Saw a link to your blog off of Haley's. Congrats on your husband getting a new job. And congrats on moving to Texas. We lived there for two years about two hours northwest of Dallas. We loved it.

Ok, I'm a little behind. Congrats on the big life change! What a wonderful wife to submit and move on such short notice. I'll keep you in my prayers for a good move, a speedy sell of the house, a good job for you, a comfortable change of scenery for Thumbs, and all things Texas.
