holy update!

Hello fellow bloggers!

It has been a while since I have posted an update and boy has life gotten crazy!

I got married in July! By the time it was the week of- I was so ready for everything to be done!  A year of planning and stress- not everything went of perfect but the night was still amazing! I was a lucky girl to have my friends and family present for the occasion.

As if the wedding wasn't exciting enough, three months prior to our nuptials we found out we are expecting! Our baby boy is expected to arrive mid December.

Hubby got a job a the beginning of the year and we moved to a very small town. I have been struggling to adapt and hope is on the horizon- he may be moved after the end of the year to a larger town. Still small in comparison to Omaha, but much larger than where we are now.

I have also made some strides in the family history department- I will post more about that later.  There are so many resources I have yet to dip into and I am very excited to get going with all of them. It seems that as fall slides in, I will have more time to do research as I am not working as much.

With the help of a fellow family researcher, I have made contact with another distant relative that has been wonderful in offering information on members of his side of the family that have left us with many questions- some that he was even able to answer.

Speaking of family- we have decided to have our son's middle name be Alexander- after my aforementioned relative that was a white slave.  His story is so rich and intriguing to me- I felt a connection with him from the start.  This connection is shared with few of my deceased relatives.

I will update once again with more family history research.

Life has changed SO much for me since I last updated.. so I will fill you in!

I got engaged in May.  The date is set for less than 6 months from now- July 14, 2012.

I changed jobs in May, same company different position. 

Fiance got a job up north in small town Iowa.  That new position? Leaving it to move to BFE Iowa.  Can't wait.  No seriously, I look forward to NOT working full time, going to school full time, and planning a wedding.  It will be nice to have a break.

Speaking of school- I graduate in April! I am in my last term and still maintaining Dean's List.  All set to graduate with honors. 

There have been a few breakthroughs as far as the genie side goes.  I have connected with a third cousin located in the South and i look forward to sharing information with him.  I have also upgraded my software. For those of you using older versions of FTM, I HIGHLY suggest the update to FTM 2012.  The integration to your Ancestry tree is amazing and long over due.
