More Bounce in California

Click play and read on

I can finally tell y'all the big news that I've been tormenting annoying you all with!

We're moving..........


Irvine, California!

It's about 45 minutes south of Los Angeles, which I am pumped about. Lots of celebs to see stalk.

Doug's company is transferring him here. We found out almost a month ago, but I couldn't put it on here until his boss announced it. I (sadly) quit my job (where I cried the ugly cry on my last day) a couple weeks ago so I could get ready for the move, and most importantly, spend time with my family. 

We are going out there next week to find a place to live, and then Doug starts on the 25th. I want to rent a house, so Maisy can have a yard to run in. This trip will actually be my first time in California! It's kind of weird that I'm moving somewhere I've never even been, but I know I'll love it.

However, I've lived in Georgia my entire life. I went to college an hour away from home. This move will be a shock to me, I'm sure, and will take some time to adjust. I'm not letting myself get sad yet...just excitement for now :)

Another exciting part is.....Doug and I are driving out there! I refuse to put my babies (Maisy and Pep) on a plane (Maisy would have to go in cargo...NO thank you!) My mom was supposed to do this trip with me, but her treatment schedule made that impossible :( 

The drive is 36 hours. Luckily, Maisy and Pep are angels in the car and sleep most of the time. I'm pretty excited about our trip! 

SO, if you know of any connections, recommendations, jobs, etc. for anything in the Irvine/LA area, let me know! We don't really know anyone or anything there!

OMG!!! That is so exciting! Congrats to you and your hubs on the move!

I've only been to Cali once...on our honeymoon actually and we stayed in Huntington Beach and did the Disney thing and loved it! The weather was beautiful and not super hot and the ocean was amazing!

Best wishes on a smooth move for all of you! :)

Oh my gosh!!! JULIE!!! This makes me happy but selfishly sad at the same time. We are gonna miss y'all! But I can't wait to read about your glamorous life in Cali. And I will be praying y'all find a house out there, it's the best thing that happened to us since we got a dog!

(P.S. That song always reminds me of Win a Date with Tad Hamilton. Love it!)

That's awesome that your babies are so good in the car. Our dog is HORRIBLE.
