New job and couponing

First of all, I FINALLY got my security badge today!! This is such a huge answered prayer. This means I can finally start my new job at the airport. I am beyond excited about this, bc it has been 2.5 months since my last day at Kohl's. If I had known it would take that long, I would have stayed at Kohl's until I knew I could start... but there's no way I could have known. Anyway, I am very happy and grateful to finally be able to start at Million Air. I think it's going to be a really fun job!
In other news, last night I went to a couponing class at church! I have been wanting to start couponing to save us some extra money, but it is kind of overwhelming. Reagan was very helpful, because she is from the coast. There are so many great websites out there for couponing, but we don't have any of the grocery stores that they use here. (No Publix, Kroger, Harris Teeter, etc.) So, we have to shop at places like Winn-Dixie. However, Reagan gets pretty much everything except milk, bread, and meat from drug stores. So, now I have some helpful tips, and hopefully it will motivate me!

New blog!

Welcome to our new blog! I thought this might be beneficial since we live so far from our family and friends. Life in Mississippi is treating us pretty well! Philip is now a fully certified Air Traffic Controller, and I'm hoping to start my new job as a Customer Service Rep for Million Air any day now! (Who knew it could take 2 months+ to get a background check?!...). Meanwhile, I am trying out some new crafts and watching a LOT of HGTV. :)
We are really loving our new church family at Bayou View Baptist in Gulfport. In fact, Pip is playing softball with the church's team! We are very thankful for the friends we have found there. I am really anxious to get more involved and start singing again. That is something I really miss.
I guess that is all for now! I will try to keep you all updated pretty often. It has been at least 4 or 5 years since I was an active blogger, so we'll see.


P.S. Thanks to Ryan Stone for the blog name! Also to Emily Trussell for another great suggestion- The Knightly News! You guys are so creative.
