Big News

As in huge...epic...GINORMOUS!!

You want to know what it is....

Like, really want to know...

Okay, I'll stop now

We're NOT moving to Texas!!

Let me say that again...we're NOT MOVING AT ALL!!!

Ryan accepted a position with a new company two weeks ago
They might be kind of familiar to you as I'm sure many of you have either owned or remember those annoying commercials

"'re gettin' a..."

Yup, that's right, Ryan's going to be the new Dell guy...he's been working on his acting career in his spare time

Yeah, right! You won't be seeing his face on the TV and he won't be who you call for technical support. I honestly don't even understand what he does and I'm okay with that. Keeps the excitement in our marriage! :) This opportunity fell into Ryan's lap and God paved the way from start to finish.

God listens and answers prayers,

 every single one of them my mom prayed against our moving

Seriously, that's what she and I believe half our church prayed for the past 5 months

...the other half, well, we'll deal with them later (insert evil laugh)

So we will continue to reside in the lovely state of Michigan with our fantastic family and friends. We won't have to sell our brand spankin' new home!

Ryan's office will be based in our home. He will have to travel but not as much as he did with his previous company.

I won't bore you with pictures of all the great things that Michigan has to offer...

Just know that I will not miss the boots, belt buckles and rattlesnakes of Texas

and two last words

Go Green!


  1. Yes, you never had a chance with your mom and me praying. We've prayed lots of BIG prayers and He seems to answer most of them as we asked. Yup-You never had a chance!!! ;) Seriously, I'm so happy for you-congratulations to Ryan!

  2. OH. MY. GOODNESS. I am so happy!!!! I know we don't get to see each other as often as we'd like, but at least I know we'll have the chances to!!!!! Yeah!!! Congrats to Ryan too! happy!!!!

  3. Good news! Congrats to you guys! (Even though that green junk was a sad way to end the post)

  4. SO glad you are staying although I was hoping to see some BIG HAIR! :0) Beth Moore will never know what she could have had!

  5. Yes! What great news! I'm sure your parents are so relieved. Now I just have to pray my daughter back here and all will be well!Miss Molly did so well in Sunday School today. She was smiling the whole time!

  6. You just made my day!!! This is the best news ever!! I reverse-pray all the time when something I don't want to happen...might! God did say you could ask him for anything!!

  7. Welcome "home!" What a relief for all.
    Congratulations Ryan!

  8. that's so exciting! congrats to your family! :)

  9. YAY!!! Im so happy for you guys Em!! And GO GREEN! One of these days the family should come down and visit me, and maybe get a little ice cream from the Dairy Store!! :)

  10. This is only my second time commenting (just found your blog today!) and I just had to comment. When we were prayfully considering homeschooling for our girls this past year that exact same socialization concept came to us. I couldn't agree more!

    Sounds like it's all working out, and I can't wait to read more!
