Houston, There is No Problem.

We are heading to Houston, Texas!!

I'm so ridiculously excited about this, I can hardly stand it.  David graduates with his second degree in a couple of weeks, and he has been interviewing with several companies for the last few months.  We literally could have wound up anywhere, but he had his sights set on Marathon Oil and Gas in Houston...and we got the call on Friday afternoon that this is going to come true.  He received an offer to be a safety specialist for Marathon Corporate, and he will begin his new career on May 23rd.

We do have friends and family there, so the move will not be without company in our new city.

I do however have to stay through December to finish this Masters degree up.  But to be real honest, if the right job opportunity comes along, I'm out...  :)

So the house will be on the market soon, we're getting David packed up (he will be living with his sister and her husband for a short while until we can nail down a rent house for a while), and I'm cleaning out the house I have somehow managed to stuff full of just crap for the last 4 years...

But we come!

Phi Mu OKC Woman of the Year

Back in about October, my dear friend, Penny Cupp, called to tell me some pretty awesome news: that the Oklahoma City Phi Mu Alumnae Chapter had decided to honor me as the Phi Mu Woman of the Year.

I could not have been more speechless.  And actually, still am.

Last week was the Panhellenic luncheon at the OKC Golf and Country Club honoring all sororities' chosen Women of the Year.  17 total.  (in the picture below, the blonde woman in the purple dress-Sigma Kappa's WOTY-is the mother of a current Phi Mu freshman, Baileigh Means).

I was able to invite family and friends to the event, and one in particular I wanted there, was my Aunt Judy, Pi Phi alumna.
Luckily, I didn't have to say anything when I was presented, but my mom did...
With Judge Swinton (Zeta alumna), her daughter Caitlin Green (she pledged Phi Mu in 2005, and she was always one of my absolute favorite collegiates, me and mom.

All the Phi Mus that came to the event.  I could not have been happier, and I felt so honored these fabulous women came out to support me.
With an impending move out of state looming, I know I will cherish this award and these women for years to come.  Thank you for the honor...

I'm still speechless...
