Our cRaZy December

I promise, I haven't just been slacking. I have never been so busy in my whole life. I have 10 new posts for you to check out- all the way from Thanksgiving! Here is a little recap of December- not only is it the most crazy month of the year, we just have to throw in a whole bunch more! We have been wanting to move closer to Tom's work, and our lease was up on December 1st, so we started looking for homes in Chandler and Gilbert. We looked for a couple weeks and it was really tough. We would find one we liked and then we would fill out an application and then it would be gone. It was heart-wrenching. Then we found this beauty in Chandler and luckily we saw it the day it went on the market. We jumped on it fast and surprisingly, we got it!! I was so excited to finally be out of limbo and know what we were doing. Then my friend asked us if we could watch her boys (see below) until Dec.8. So, we changed our move date to the 11th. Crazy, I know!! So I ended up packing up our whole house in two days. It was pretty intense, but luckily I have some wonderful friends (Jen, Kasey, Heather) who offered to watch my kids- Thank you!! So we got all moved in and that next weekend I got sicker than I have ever been in my entire life. To this day, I am still not sure what caused poisening, the flu- whatever it was, it was worst! I started feeling queasy around 9pm then went to bed and had horrible stomach cramps until around midnight when I finally just gave up and threw everything up. Then I felt better for about 5 minutes, then it was back with a vengeance. I was pretty much puking violently around the clock for 6 hours.Then the fever and body aches set it.  It was pure torture. I did slowly get better, but it took a few days before I could eat anything and I could barely walk because I was so dizzy. Luckily nobody else caught it. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I seriously thought I was going to die. So, then my parents and sister arrived on the 19th and we partied with them until the 31st. We had a ton of fun! Make sure you check out some of the stuff we did in the posts below. It is so nice living close to everything. We are like 7 minutes from the 202 where you can find pretty much anything you are looking for.Things got back to normal on 3rd- I am back to designing and Braden is back in school and we are just loving life. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and heres to a happy and safe 2011!!
