You guys are seriously the best for continuously checking in with my blog even though I've been absent for the past month. Never in three years of blogging have I taken such a long break. You would think that I was pregnant with such an absence (I'M NOT!) lol. 

Todd and I are getting into our new routine of life, and now having a second car is going to help tremendously with that!!! Lets break down how the past few weeks have gone.
  1. Do Todd and I see each other? Yes and No. Todd goes to work 7 days a week, and will be gone from 5:00 am (on average) to 6-7 pm at night. He's on call 1-2x a week where he is at the hospital for 36 hours straight. On the nights we see each other we usually will make dinner together if I haven't already made it. Since his days are super long we will usually go to bed around 9 pm. For the past 4 weeks Todd has had 4 days off, and when he has a day off he spends it studying for his exam at the end of this month. 
  2. What do I do when I'm not with Todd? Currently I am teaching Pure Barre at 3 studios: PB Dallas, PB Uptown, and PB Preston Hollow. Since I moved during a time when the schedule was already set I have been picking up classes until I start getting on the schedule in August. When I'm not teaching I'm working out at home doing my BBG program. Once I'm done working out for the day I am then trying to get caught up on the backend of my blog, and leading my Senegence team. 
  3. Have I explored much of Dallas yet? To be honest no! I've been here 4 weeks, and I know how to get to the grocery store, mall, work, and home #theessentials lol. I explored a little of Dallas when I went on a shoot with Red Fern photography. I'm hoping that once Todd has finished his test that we can start exploring our city on his days off. 
  4. Have I made friends yet? I'm getting there. I feel lucky to be apart of Pure Barre, and be surrounded by so many women. All my co workers have been so nice to extend a helping hand out to me, and invite me to things. Last week I went with a fellow PB teacher to the Perot Museum where I met two other women, and their darling kids. After our museum date we then met up with another PB teacher for lunch. I seriously needed that day date because all last week I was feeling so lonely. It was as if the Lord knew I needed some friends all last week, and blessed me with an opportunity to meet 4 new women. 
  5. Are we unpacked yet? We are getting there!!!! We finally unpacked our whole front room, and we need to start furniture shopping. My office is pretty complete minus things that I need hung up. I'm waiting for Todd to get done with his test until I put him to work to complete my office. My closest is completely unpacked, which took the longest out of any room. Since we have two bathrooms I have the master, and Todd has the guest. We still need to unpack both of our bathrooms, and get everything organized.

  2. Well it sounds like you are making great progress! I have only visited Dallas once and it was one of my favorite cities ever. I think once you get to really exploring it, you will fall completely in love! And my closet is always the longest and most tedious to pack and unpack whenever we move! It is the price of looking fabulous...as you always do! Hang in there.
