And the winner is...



Texas Tech! So it's off to Lubbock, an hour and half from the New Mexico border. I'm thrilled just knowing where we'll live, and Paul really loved the city when he visited it, saying it was a great place for families. I'm starting my search of the best places to live and fun things to do. We'll be just 5 1/2 hours from Dallas, so it'll be an easy trip home for the holidays. Living in Lubbock seems less intimidating than Dallas and the Metroplex, so my small-town roots will be happy.

Go Red Raiders!

Congrats-- what a relief it must be to know where you're going and what you'll be doing. Too bad Lubbock is so far from Houston.

Hooray Hooray! Great to have a plan--finally! Oh, I have a gift for Hattie now!! I'll send it sometime when I get to the post office. Can you email your address? I may just have Len's address for you . . .

p.s. In answer to your question on our blog Mel: Yep, we're gonna be in Utah this summer. Beginning of August. Spenc's brother Matt is getting married... you know, the roommate Paul forgot he had? Ya, Matt. We're VERY excited! (For Matt and going back to Utah!)
