Phew! These past few weeks have been a whirlwind. let me take you back to the beginning…
First thing, I got a new job! It happened SO quickly. I applied a while ago, and literally haven’t heard anything in months. Then all of a sudden randomly, I received an email on a Monday asking if I was still interested (I basically crawled through the computer and said YES). Tuesday I had an interview with the company, Wednesday I had a second interview with Ford, and Thursday I was offered the job.
I’m so thankful for this opportunity, as I’ve wanted this job for years (Literally. I was in college and was trying to get into this job). I’m now a Motorcraft Analyst for Ford, which basically means I’m in charge of some of the part catalogs that are distributed to parts stores and dealerships. Adding parts, making sure they’re still relevant for the current year, etc. It’s very interesting and I’m looking forward to learning it all.
Of course, that means that I left my other job, on my birthday. My co-workers had a huge Birthday/Going Away Party for me, and it was the best (hello Target gift cards!!) I will be forever grateful for the knowledge I’ve retained there, but it was time to move on. I’ll always remember them and we still talk every day.

Also on my birthday after work, we left for the $50,000 race up in Stanton, Michigan. We left Wednesday to get our tent set up and to relax for the night, and Matt’s dad and step mom were bringing the race car the next morning. Thursday morning we got a call letting us know that Matt’s dad had emergency surgery because he had a hole in his stomach. He told us not to come back down, so we checked on him a few times a day. Matt raced our friends car, but we didn’t bring home the big check. Boo. (Matt’s dad was released from the hospital this Saturday, and he seems to be doing well!)
Next, Matt got a new job too! He’s with the same company, just a different position. And because of this, we are going to wait to sell our house. We figured that way, we can save up as much money as possible and look next year.
We have been extremely busy and adjusting to our new schedules, but we are loving it!
