Cliff is legit, and I have resigned!

A week ago, Cliff took the oath and officially became an attorney, and I experienced my first true work-free day! Needless to say, it was a GREAT day.

The Friday before Thanksgiving was my last day at The Summit Group. I had been working there for 4+ years. I started working there just after I graduated from BYU. Just around my 1 year anniversary with the company, Cliff graduated from BYU, and I had Stone. We were off to Lubbock, Texas, for Cliff to begin law school. My boss called me in and offered me the chance to work from home. It started off as a 6 month trial to see if we could make it work from home, and we quickly realized it was awesome on both sides. ...for me, and for them. It turned out the be one of the greatest blessings through law school. It enabled me to put Cliff through law school, and to remain a full-time stay-at-home mommy. I got to put my degree to practice all Mad Men style (actually, it's nothing like Mad Men). Cliff is now done with school, and lately, it had become QUITE THE CHALLENGE to be a full-time mommy while juggling what had become a crazy work load. So now, I get to give my kids my undivided attention. It was a little bittersweet, but more so sa-weet! I'm really feeling how wonderful it is today. Last week was vacation, so this week I will really begin to feel my freedom. Today FEELS GOOD!

Up next...our Thanksgiving trip!

Music to my Ears

I love everything about this girl. Recently, we've learned how sensitive she is, and how shy she can be! She's so stinkin' adorable. But here, you get a taste of her wonderful laugh. I'm so glad she's mine!!

PS: I think my favorite part is at :15 seconds when she makes a poker face for a mili-second, just before loosing it to laughter.

Attorney at Law

Meet my husband, a new Texas attorney. HOOOORAY!

Remember when I said, "He did it. We did it. We're Done." ? Well, we weren't quite done. He had to take this massive thing called THE BAR. 3 day test, not to mention one of the harder bar exams in the country. I knew he'd pass, but you can't help but feel a little anxious and nervous as you wait 3 months for the results. Plus, we moved across the state of Texas for a job, so our fingers were crossed, prayers were said, and we heard last week. HE DID IT. WE DID IT. WE'RE DONE.

Congrats, babe! I Love you, and I'm proud of you! You rock my world!
