Friday's Foto Finish Fiesta

This week has had some very big ups and downs. At the beginning of the week Dave and I were starting the process of finding a home to buy and getting pre-approved for a mortgage. We were both very excited to finally be taking this step and we were both happy with the area we had chosen.

Then out of nowhere Dave is told that he may or may not have a job and that the higher up were going to have to discus this. It's a really long story and I wont bore you with the crazy details but it has nothing to do with Dave not doing his job and everything to do with the economy and car sales being down. We spent two days not knowing what was going on. Then finally this afternoon Dave was told that they had a place for him on the sales floor. We are so thankful that he has a job but after the way they have treated him he is out looking for something else. For now though we are good.

Of course this scared us more than I can explain and we decided that we would put the house buying on hold for a couple of months, maybe longer, and see how things go. I think that this scare was a sign that it wasn't our time yet.

Things like this always make me think about how lucky I am to have him in my life and to have our children. All of this made me decided that maybe this week I should pick a picture from out wedding to share for Candid Carries Friday Foto Finish Fiesta and here is the one I choose.

I always loved the pictures of the hands and had to have one from Dave and I's wedding. I had my nails done specifically for this picture. For some reason I thought that the little rhinestones on all my nails would look really good in this picture and they do. I love this picture so much that it is framed and sits on my nightstand for me to look at every night before I go to bed. This picture is also the only thing we have left of Dave's original wedding band, but that's a story of it's own.

Now it's your turn to go and share a picture with us.

Oh, so sweet (the picture, that is). Sorry to hear about the job tumult. If it makes you feel better, three people got the axe at my office this week—THREE!!! Not me... for now.

That is a very nice picture. You have to have a hand picture when you get married it's just the right thing to do. :)

Glad Dave still has a job, it's so scary right now.

What a perfect picture to go with your post. So sorry to hear about your week, the job craziness, & having to put off on the new home venture. Glad to hear that he will have a job though! The economy is going down the pipes!
