I have to admit, I feel like I'm sort of cheating for this week's Pink Saturday post. I wanted a chance to give all my blogging friends an update on our life lately, as well as link up with Beverly and all the other Pink Ladies today! Even though it's only been a couple of weeks since I last participated, I feel like I've been out of the loop forever!
Anyway, the big news is that our life has changed dramatically (for the good) in just a week! On Monday, May 16th, my husband accepted a job in Pendleton, Oregon. We have lived in Eastern Oregon all our lives, except for the last 15 months which were spent in northwest Washington.
So, we literally had 4 days to pack up everything! We've got most of it packed and about 2/3 of it moved---we are 6 hours away so must move in-between work weeks! Jamie started work this past Monday the 23rd, and we moved into our new place the day before yesterday!
We were so blessed to be able to move right back into the house that we moved out of 15 mo. ago! I just love this house and will post some pictures once I get things unpacked. It's a Craftsman home that was built in the 19-teens. There are so many little things that just give it great character!
On the first day of work, Jamie was promoted to a different position than they originally hired him for. He received a raise in pay and it turns out that he's doing exactly the job he was hoping for when he first applied. He's really excited about all the new things he's learning as a Software Engineer, and I'm excited that we finally have him home for dinner in the evenings and home on the weekends!
So...since we've only been in our new house for a couple days, I've not been able to take any new pictures... In fact, I was just going to say that I can't even find my camera but I just spied it over in the corner! Ha!

However, I don't think I ever posted our family's Easter picture..so here we are. There's a couple of little pinkies there, as well as a few other great looking people!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend and don't forget to enter my giveaway! I'll be drawing a name on Sunday afternoon and will contact the winner via email so make sure I have a way to get a hold of you!
HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY! Visit Beverly and wish her a Happy 3rd Birthday!
