Aloha!!!

Quite a few things have happened rather quickly and fast around here......here they are in somewhat of an order:

1. We're moving! Very excited...we are going to be saying goodbye to "urban living" and hello to the suburbs of San Diego.....we currently live on, let's just say a rather interesting side of the "805" highway here and we'll be moving to Scripps Ranch.....still renting but the house is *awesome*, small, but super clean, totally upgraded and great backyard (the owners are leaving the swingset!).....it'll be a great move for us!

2. I got a job!! =0; solidified everything yesterday..i'll be doing what I was doing before, and actually it's with the same company, but different "group", there are a lot of contracting groups within my old company, so this will be solid work (hopefully!) and basically i'll be going to the veteran's center and I basically do transitional counseling for vet's with disabilities, so they are given a rating by the VA and with this specific rating comes benefits for education/additional training which they can take advantage of, so I help them figure out what benefits they want to use for educ/training and then I write up a plan if they want to go back to school etc. For example: i've put people into plans for vet tech school, nursing, auto repair, etc....just depends on what they want to do...it's really a fun job and many of these vets have done one thing for so long, and now have acquired a disability on active duty, sometimes it's hard for them to imagine their next step, so it's truly an amazing process to be a part of.

3. We....are taking a trip! Dave surprised me with a trip to Kauai!!! I found out Tuesday night and we leave SATURDAY!! AHHHH!! SUPER excited!!! We totally need this time away and i'm just so excited to spend time with him and to relax....we're planning on basically hiking, snorkling and just relaxing....we're staying down in the south end in Poipu, so hopefully a bit more sun then the north side!! Suggestions are greatly appreciated =0.

That's it for now =0 hehe......Plus One doing great! 15 weeks tomorrow, still running along here =0

Hope you're having a blast on Kauai! My husband and I took a trip there when I was 2nd trimester too... We called it our 'BabyMoon'. If you get a chance before you leave, find a vegetarian restaurant in Kapa'a called The Lotus Blossom (or something like that). Even if you're not vegetarian (we're not) it's a fantastic place to eat! :)
