So!! A whole lot of "much" has happened since I last blogged. Jeff graduated college! (yay) We went to Aruba to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary & his graduation. He got a job at CH2M Hill. I got a new job at Saatchi & SaatchiX. We bought a house. Can we say BIG STUFF going on in Hickleland. No babies on the way yet though (whew). Gotta get thru some of these other life changing events before we cross that path. We are just SOOOOOOO amazingly blessed! God is good.
Jeff really likes his job. He stays super busy. He is a special projects coordinator for CH2M Hill - a huge engineering firm. It's only a year contract, but we are PRAYING they hire him on full time after a year. Or if not them, then some other engineering company here in NWA. We really hope to stay in this area! (obviously, since we just bought a house).
Yesterday marked the last day of my first week on MY new job!! I'm the HR Coordinator for Saatchi & SaatchiX (pronounced sot-chi)- a global advertising company headquartered here in NWA. I think I'm going to like it once I learn the ropes, but man what an overwhelming week! I am responsible for 200+ employees (insurance, benefits, etc). The job comes with a LOT of responsibility but also a lot of perks, so I'm really excited!! For example, we get 3 days off at Thanksgiving (paid) and we close Christmas eve & remain closed thru New Years (paid). Wahoo!!! LOTS OF PAID HOLIDAY TIME! And I think I'm gonna need it...lol
Ok, moving on to the house!!!!!!! Wow, I'm so excited about it! We have it inspected Wednesday, so pray everything goes well for us!! It's an all brick home, 4 bedroom, 2 bath, wood burning fireplace, jacuzzi tub in the master bath, large open kitchen & living room, hardwood floors, great deck out back. I'M SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!! This is definitely the nicest house I've ever lived in!!! If all goes well, we should close on Nov. 5th. And we're taking volunteers to help us move!!! ;-) hee hee
So that's our life lately.......in a nutshell...........and now I leave you w/ a pic of the new house! :)
