Operation 'Get Kirsten & pups ready to leave on Saturday' is in full force

I survived my Monday in the office after being out for 4 days. Now I have to kick it into gear to get myself ready to go to NE on Saturday.(Mike is leaving later in Sept) How do you plan for a month living out of a bag in NE and a Vegas trip thrown in the mix?...this'll be some interesting packing.

But before Operation "Get Kirsten ready" is in full swing, I wanted to share our news about our new house. YAY!! We were in Santa Fe last Tues-Sat searching for a new home and we had success. And I think I'm going to just love Santa's beautiful, we can drive 5 minutes from north Santa Fe and we're in the mountains, ski resort is 25 minutes away, Santa Fe takes such pride in their history and culture, also takes much pride in preserving the outdoors & the views(they have very few street lights in the neighborhoods because they want people to enjoy the stars), & it's very dog friendly...amongst many, many other things! I think we'll fit right in and enjoy all Santa Fe has to offer.

Here is a pic of our house in Santa Fe and we close at the end of September.

I'm off to get packing and get my portion of the cleaning done. :)

a rough month so far

Sometimes I just can't take it! I miss my Mike once again because he's working like a mad man. He's been working 12-18 hr days EVERY day since July 31st with absolutely no break. He's a maniac, if you ask me. Although I miss him, I was made aware months in advance and agreed(not that I had a choice for this particular event) to this spurt of a crazy working schedule. It's the Legg Mason Tennis Classic and since the facility is located on park police property and it's in Mike's assigned district, he is required to work.(according to Mike anyway) A few extra dollars as we prepare for our move and hopefully buying a house can't be a bad thing.

But very soon this crazy work will end and I will get two uninterupted days with my hubs in Ocean City, MD. We are planning an early celebration of our 1st wedding anniversary in OC, which is where we were married, since we won't be here in MD on our actual anniversary. I'm looking forward to going back to visit the beach we were married on ~ already makes me a little emotional. I won't get too sappy but I have to tell you that I have such an incredible husband and I hope everyone enjoys marriage bliss with their spouse as we have over the past year. (We'll pretend Mike would say the same about his lovely wife.) :) Mike is absolutely positively the love of my life and I can't even imagine(and won't imagine) life without him.

What do I love today?

Besides the obvious ~ husband, family, friends, pups ~ Today I am in love with my Strawberry Paraiso White Tea from Teavana. Even if you aren't a tea drinker now, try a few Teavana teas and you too will fall in love! Absolutely refreshingly wonderful!

Unfortunately, there are no Teavana stores in Santa Fe but I can order online. Whew! Who knows though, maybe I'll find some incredible tea store in Santa Fe.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday!
