A Week of Big Announcements!

Friday, January 27, 2017

Linking with with This Ain't the Lyceum for 7 Quick Takes!

Things have been a little quieter on the blog due to lots and lots of big developments! Everything I thought/hoped would happen over the course of this year  happened in one week! Here's all of the big announcements and news.


Husband Got a New Job

Matt got a (somewhat surprise) offer for a job on Thursday, terms on Friday, and we had the weekend to decide. We officially accepted the offer on Monday.

Which means....


We're Moving to Minnesota

And the new job is in Minnesota! Twin Cities to be more specific.
Hit me up with your local tips, homeschool/Catholic stuff in the area, and any and all tips for surviving winter with kids. Or just surviving winter. I'm from Texas, I do natural disasters not long term dark and cold.


We're House Hunting

We will probably be renting for the first year (due to the REALLY not sure about this winter business). If you have tips on neighborhoods, leads on 3+ bedroom houses for rent, etc.
Very much looking forward to having our own laundry machines!


New Baby Makes an Appearance in September

Yup, we're pregnant!
It felt like it took forever, but we are expecting baby due in mid-late September. Interviewing midwives now so any recs for homebirth midwives in the Twin Cities would be awesome.


John's reaction to the moving and baby news: "Momma, I'm excited about the new baby.....and the new backyard." #SameLevelofExcitment

He's also very interested in what baby looks like each week, and very concerned this baby does not have legs or hands yet. Sorry kid, growing a baby takes a while.


The Importance of Being Earnest opened

Opening weekend went great! Happy to be back onstage tonight.

If you're in the SF Bay Area, you should come see the show! You can find ticket info here.


We're still awaiting reviews to come out (and I'm dying), but in the meantime photos were released!

Some are from our early (before we knew what our costumes would be in final form) photoshoot, but the others were from one of the last dress rehearsals. My cast is gorgeous!


  1. Oh! So many congratulations, I don't know where to begin!! But, one of your comments on an article (or in a group) makes much more sense now (about tips on helping kids move).

    Talk about Happy New Year!!

    This was a fantastic good news article, and I hope you are all thrilled.

    1. Thanks! We're thrilled. It all happened very quickly. Everything we thought/hoped would happen sometime this year all happened within one week. Talk about a whirlwind!

  2. Congratulations on the everything! You look beautiful as Cecily, Kirby. I don't know if I have any good advice other than invest in wool socks and a library card. :)

    Prayers for you and the new baby!

    1. I love that people keep suggesting libraries. I can totally get behind this books and cozy socks idea!

  3. Congratulations!! This is all such exciting news!!

  4. Wow wow wow!!!!! Congrats on everything!!! Oh my goodness, you look gorgeous in those photos, congrats on the baby, move, job, just everything! This is like Christmas all over again :) I've never lived there, though I visited once when my brother lived there for a summer-you should google the Bunce family (buncebackyarddotcom); they put on theatrical productions in their backyard (they live on the outskirts of Minneapolis, I believe), and my brother was in their production of Fiddler on the Roof several years back. That kind of thing seems up your alley.

    1. WWWHHHHHHAAATTT! I'm all over this!

  5. So many wonderful things at once! Praying for you and your beautiful family as you make your way through many transitions over this next year, Kirby! <3

  6. Congratulations!!! Surviving winter? Lots of movie nights... lots of gloves and hats (they always lose them) and Find a place your kids can run! They get sooo crazzyy!! Hahaha we had a crazy cooped up kids day today

  7. Whirlwind week indeed! Congratulations to you and Matt, praying the Lord will smooth the way forward for you all. :)

  8. Congrats on all fronts!! Excited to read along during this time of change. No cold weather tips from this Texas girl.

  9. Congrats. I'm due mid-late sep too! :)
