Love, Mawwiage...and a job

Pin It!

And even though we ain't got money
I'm so in love with you honey
and everything will bring a chain of love.
Something I haven't shared with you guys yet, is that my husband started his first big boy, attorney job yesterday. He got a couple of offers the week before Christmas, and after careful consideration, he chose a small firm in Carlsbad {about 10 minutes from home and right down the street from my work!} The location itself is worth celebrating because it was very likely that we were going to have to move wherever he found a job. After a lot of squealing and dancing around the apartment, it started to sink in that my time as the sole provider has come to an end. And although the last six months have been challenging, and we've had to be really frugal with our money, I feel proud that my job was able to support us for as long as it did. As a woman that feels really good. {But not so good that I would want to do it for even another week longer.} It feels incredible to have some of the weight lifted from my shoulders. We can now start paying off school loans and saving for our very own home, and let's be real - shopping! It seems like ages since I've been able to buy that cute pair of shoes when they wave to me from the window.

In other news, you can find me chatting about love and mawwiage over at Always Kiss Me Good Night.

Yayyy! Go get your "nails done, hair done, errrything did" I used to be the moneymaker in the relationship and although it made me feel powerful, its also a TON of pressure. So happy for you two!

Congrats! I'm sure you guys are both so excited, and that it's a relief to be able to breathe a bit with your budget. Way to take care of him for those few months, though!

congrats to hubby!
i am so happy for you love!
this is great news! i know how
you feels because that happened
to me before with my sissy. We
both take care of our bills but
we went on vacations to Argentina
and she had to quit her job. When
we came back everything was on me
and it was super stressful! Now
she has a job and we are back to
splitting our bills. So i am
definitely happy that he will be
able to help you out!
