go MAVS go!

We are so excited... Chris matched into ENT (otolaryngoloy if you wanna sound dorky or Ear, Nose and Throat surgery for us cool cats) at our first choice and it is such a huge blessing!
It's a little further south than most of our family live, but we're hoping that the
draw of the Riverwalk will entice many visitors to come stay with us!! :)
...Since we don't really know anyone that would want to come for a Spurs game...
Yesterday was a blast! It was (as the multitudes that subscribe to our blog know) Match day.

Chris is "helping" me write the post this time, but so far he hasn't been very useful....
Aaaand he just gave up to watch Georgia Tech and OK State... pshhh, boys! jk jk :)
It's been pretty exciting to watch all the games this year even though both of our brackets are
floundering helplessly. Thank you Murray State, Ohio and all you other upsets that I didn't guess right. :P

I kinda got side-tracked about Match Day earlier... and now I just wanna go sit by the fire and drink something warm and delicious. haha
Here's another rabbit trail for ya.... I'm reading The Complete Sherlock Holmes collection of works and it has just been fabulous. They're mostly short stories so it's easy to just read one quickly. Or, if you're like me... read "just one more" and the "maybe, just one more" you do when your watching your favorite Tv series on dvd.

Ok, that's enough for now I think.
Maybe next time I'll be a little more focused. :)

In the coming week....

Well, match day is just around the corner.. ahh!! :)
We alternate between crazy excited and crazy nervous. it is gonna be a big week.
I know we have been covered in lots of prayers and am so thankful!
It's been an incredible journey for us these past months just learning to fully rely on God.
We have been praying that He put us where ever He wants to use us...of course we've
also let Him know what we think would be the coolest ever! :)...but ultimately we know
that He works all things together for the good of those who love Him.
The challenge is understanding that our limited definition of what's good for us is exactly that...
limited. My prayer is that whatever the outcome of next week, our Heavenly Father receives
all the glory and that He gives us eyes to see the perfection of His plan for our lives.
Thanks for all the prayers, love and support!
Get excited!!! :)
