oh saturday, i can't wait until i can actually call you my weekend. 
[saturday is kind of a "monday" to us. yuck.]

i've been a busy little bee around here. more packing, more working. 
but what an exciting week it has been. here's a little re-cap of what we've been up to. 

+ burger night at one of our favorites: liberty tap room
+ sons of anarchy marathon on netflix. 
+ working with the lovely ladies of den of thieves
+ putting our official notices in at work. six years later...
+ carter made a huge decision about a temporary job in . i'm continuously praying over this.
+ again, i'm continuously praying about our future. everything will fall into place. just trust in the lord.
+ this week's episode of the vampire diaries... hello, delena! my heart is smiling but breaking for stefan. 
+ found out my grandmother is having surgery on tuesday, please keep her in your thoughts & prayers.
+ i'm going back to school in the spring, next step is meeting with the advisor once back in tennessee!
+ this amazing mural. we plan on getting a french bulldog and i was over the moon when i saw this.

so yeah, a lot has happened in the last few days. several big decisions with a couple minor setbacks. i'm so excited to be heading home on wednesday for the thanksgiving holidays. hopefully, if all goes well with my grandmother's surgery, we will be able to celebrate at home together and not in the hospital. we are packing my teeny car down with as much as we can to give us a head start on moving. luckily, carter's dad has agreed to bring a uhaul down the following week to help us with the rest. now, we just have to figure out how to get our turtles home. not as easy as strapping them in seatbelts. i am so thankful for both of the amazing families i am a part of. and for the time we are about to have with them. but most importantly, i am eternally thankful for the man i have in my life. with everything going on, he just wants to make me happy. and i, him. 

happy real weekend to you all!
