He got the job!!!

Chad got the phone call, Monday afternoon, that he received the position of Track Worker through the railroad! After being laid off for 7 months this is going to be an adjustment (in a great way!) He will start in 2-3 weeks after some tests, a physical, and a weeks worth of training in Georgia. We couldn't be any happier and owe a huge THANKS to all of you who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers!

Now that he is going back to work we can focus on the bathroom that we have been hoping to add. I found some cool colors and decorating ideas but have no real concrete ideas yet. I only know I want the colors to match our current bedding which looks like this:

Target link for BLOOM bedding.

I like the cabinet in between the mirror instead of one long mirror on this one.

I love the dark wood here.

Our bathroom is going to be long and narrow like this, with a walk in closet on either side as you walk into the bathroom. I'm going to lose closet space in the process but I'm alright with that. I don't own that many shoes, purses, and clothes so it is no big deal!

The cool colors in this picture remind me of a spa. I also love the arrangement on the counter!

I will be sharing some Pink Paislee sneaks soon so stay tuned! Have a great week!!!

After a long break...

I am returning to blogging.

There has been much going on in the Albertson household over the past couple of months; Chad has been laid off since January. Things are looking good, the railroad is picking up, and hopefully he will be back by the end of the month. It's been nice having him home so the kids and I can spend some quality time with him, but on the other hand it's scary not having health insurance. But I have to say that God has taken care of us throughout all this!

We decided not to sell our house. Instead, we are in the process of refinancing and taking equity out to finally build the master bathroom that Chad and I have both been dreaming of. With 4 girls total it is getting VERY cramped in out tiny bathroom, LOL.

Softball season has started and while we're not off to a great start I sure am having fun playing the game and having fellowship with some great friends. And that's what it is all about.

PTA this past year has really been time consuming, much more than I initially thought, but fun none the less. Looking forward to a great school year for 2009/2010.

I haven't been scrapping much, I guess you could say with everything going on that has been my least priority. But I'm happy to say that the scrapping bug has bit once again and I've really been enjoying some time in my scraproom. With CHA quickly approaching I have MUCH to keep me busy too. Speaking of are some awesome sneak peeks from Pink Paislee's 4 new lines debuting:

I still can't believe I get to work with all this stuff...lucky me! Here is a direct link to Pink Paislee's blog. You will want to be checking here frequently for more sneak peeks and a chance to win some of the new collection!

We've also been making a lot of stops to see this:

The new "African Journey" has opened at the Fort Wayne Zoo. It is very cool. We love feeding the giraffes!
