I stopped cloth when Norah was around 5 months old. We were having too many leak issues, the fit just wasn't right.Well, I decided to give it another go. Obviously she's in a different size now, but my sister and I split the cost of the mediums back when my niece was using them. They've just been waiting for me!
We've been using Rockin Green on our clothes for several months and love it!
This is just part of my effort to be a little more earth friendly.

Butter Toffee Almonds, Cinnamon Toffee Almonds. My oh my, they are soooo good.
I'm sure they lose all they're good nutritional properties when you cover them in a butter/sugar mixture, but hey, they're delicious! Groupons are so cool!
I also got in on an awesome deal from this new site Gilt. They were giving $20credit for creating an account. I was able to get Norah a super cute organic bamboo shirt for free! It even covered shipping! I actually got George to sign up too so we got two shirts :)
I love free stuff! Thanks internet!

Otherwise we are all doing great! George likes his job, I like being here with Norah. Norah is crazy smart, oh and she's cutting her fourth molar. I need to start working on her 15mth old post....she has several words now! Okay, time for random pictures:
Her eyes are turning brown!I made pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting....yum.

We moved to White Salmon on Saturday the 9th. The moving van was huge. I was suprised at how much room our stuff took up! And that was after purging and condensing boxes. We had a lot of help loading and unloading everything, it was still crazy and stressful, but overall not too bad.
Our office is still a mess, but the computers are functional!
We've also been enjoying the view....
We can see Mt Hood almost every morning. Although you can't see it in this picture, if it was clear it would be visible through the far left window.
I found a stable for my horse! It's super nice and he gets his own 'shed' so he never has to be closed up in a barn/stall. You can kind of see how big his paddock is, and he will be turned out in a big pasture everyday unless the weather is horrible. I'm so excited and relieved we were able to find such a nice place at a price we can handle! I'm hoping we can move him next weekend.

I am so so so incredibly happy to let you all know that George accepted a job today!
American Aerospace Engineering, in White Salmon, WA. Which in is the Columbia Gorge across from Hood River, OR.
We have been through some really frustrating ups and downs in the job search the last few months. This position was referred by a friend and it all happened very quickly! George got a call from a friend on Saturday that the position was open, he sent his resume in within an hour of the call and got a reply right back setting up an interview for Monday. The interview went really well, and he got an offer this morning! He signed, accepted and returned the paperwork within a few hours. He starts on Oct 11th!
We are searching for rental houses right now since we need to move so quick and there aren't any apartments in the area, well, unless you go to Hood River and we really don't want to pay the income tax!
Over the last few weeks we have been going through our things in storage. Purging, reboxing, and organizing so moving would be easier. It was a lot of work but we are so glad we took the time to do it then so we don't have to now.
We are going up to look one place on Friday (maybe more if I can find any), and hopefully moving by next week!
There are still A LOT of details to work out, but I'll update when I know more.
