Life Update: I'm Moving to Dallas!!

Yes, you read that right: I am moving to Dallas! I have accepted a job with The Impeccable Pig in Southlake, Texas and I am just so excited for this next chapter of my life! Before I get into details, I've got to fill ya'll in with everything that happened last week.

This past week was one of the most emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausting weeks ever- which is why I was MIA from social media and my blog. I promised myself when I started this blog that I would post regularly and not make excuses about why I couldn't post. However, with everything that happened last week, I just had to put blogging on the back burner. But I'm back now and so ready to share everything that happened last week with ya'll. Last week was filled with many exciting things, but it started off terribly.

Monday, November 6 was my mom's birthday. We were going to meet my grandparents out for dinner to celebrate at our favorite Mexican restaurant. In an instant, our plans changed and we had to spring into action. We got a call from a neighbor saying the one thing you never want to hear: "your family has been in a car accident." We rushed there and it was a scene that I could not even imagine. I live in a golf cart community, so everyone drives golf carts to school, the grocery store, out to dinner etc. A high school freshman was on the way home from practice on his golf cart when he went to cross the street. I don't know exactly what happened after that, all I know is when I got there, the golf cart was in 2 pieces, the boy was ejected onto the side of the road, there was battery acid & glass everywhere, and my grandma was an absolute wreck. Long story short, the ambulance carried the boy and my grandma to the hospital. Everyone is okay, but the boy has a long way to full recovery. Please keep him and his family in your prayers! Things like that really make you take a step back and love on your family.

Tuesday I traveled to Birmingham for a job interview. It was a full day of driving, especially after being at the hospital till late the night before. But it went well and I made it home safely late that night! Wednesday was another full day! We had Scott's Antique Market this week, so the Wednesdays before are always full of loading our furniture pieces and home decor- it's basically like you are moving in and out all in one weekend! Thursday-Sunday was Scott's Antique Market. It's an antique/ home show that is once a month. My mom does a booth there every month, but I decided to help her out this month since November is always the biggest show. It's long hours and a lot of work, but totally worth it!! 

On Friday I had a phone interview with The Impeccable Pig out in Southlake, Texas. I had interviewed with this company before for one of their locations in Birmingham, but at the time it just ended up not working out. When they called me about this position, I knew Southlake was far away from home, but I still wanted to hear more about it. After talking on the phone for an hour, I just had a gut feeling that this was the job for me. I was so excited about everything she had to say and I knew this job was right up my alley. I thought about it, prayed about it, and talked about it with my family. The next day, she gave me a call and offered me the job; I was ecstatic!! After talking it over more with my family, I knew that this was an opportunity that I could not pass up. I called back on Monday, November 13 and officially accepted the offer!! My first day is December 6 and I am just so excited to move out there and start this next chapter of my life! I have never been one to up and move or travel alone, so this is VERY out of my comfort zone, but this is just something that I have to do and am SO excited to do. I have a ton of family out there, and they have graciously offered their home to me until I am able to find an apartment. I seriously could not do this without all of the love and support of my friends and family, so thank ya'll so much!! 

I am planning on continuing my regular blog schedule this week- so stay tuned for a post this Thursday!
