Moving (again)-Part 1

Good news: my house has been approved for short sale!!! Bad news: they moved closing up to tomorrow (friday)!!! I suppose that could also be good news considering it gave me a deadline to get my butt in gear but they didn't really give me much notice to assemble a team and I had to cancel my trip home which included an old friend's wedding, Tanner's and my boy :( ...and I'm working on 24+ hours of sleepless bliss. I worked last night and headed up the mountain with my friend Eric from work to get things at the house organized and ready to move. You guys finally get to meet Eric!!! Eric is from Peru and works as a monitor tech in the ICU. He is one of the best friends I have ever had! He has been instrumental in my motivation and a voice of sanity and positive encouragement. I can't even begin to tell you some of the wise things that have come out of his mouth. Having said this, you would never guess it of him by meeting him shortly because he is a giant goofy ass!!! More on my moving in the next couple of days and then I can get back to my Picture Fall!!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!!

When Eric moves he does it right and insisted I do the same. We wrapped everything in plastic wrap. I'm pretty sure he was calling it surround wrap which works as well.
Like I said-Goofy ass

My Picture Fall

I decided to sign up for the Picture Fall class that Chrissy is taking. I love fall!! Plus I've really been slacking on taking photos and I needed something fun to do for myself during this chaotic time. I'm enjoying myself so far! Some of these prompts are challenging for me because of where I am in my life but that makes it more interesting!! Thanks Chrissy!

1. Get Comfy
I have no furniture in my house except for my bed right now so it has become my haven lately
2. The Beauty Challenge
3. Morning Light
Morning is different for me than for most people. Since I work nights it's more winding down than gearing up and one thing I always find peace in is watching my cats relax in the sun.
I took this photo this morning outside my realtors office. Its in the morning light as well. I love the colors and the mountains in the background!

Happy fall!

Dad's New Mower

I had a really long, exhausting night at work last night so this will not be a long post. Just thought I'd share a few photos that dad wanted to take. He got me on the lawn mower ;) At least he let me drive it! His objective is to have a then and now photo of me on his mower. I can't find that old photo so I posted the only one I have which is Jake and I on Grandpa's mower. Enjoy. Have a happy Friday everyone!!!

Me and Jake

Dad getting it ready for me

Dad even worked a few angles. He also took a pic on his phone which he later sent to Ryan. Mom was like some day Ryan is going to regret giving his phone number to your dad ;)
