Update: Cooks Go Charlotte

Saturday, July 25, 2015

Hello all!
I've been talking about Charlotte and house-hunting a lot lately and I figured I should give an update.

Taylor and I found a house to rent!!!!!! WOOT-WOOT!
We are so excited. The house is in a safe area, has a yard for the dog-daughters, and has even more space that our current home. We are going to have room to make a small office/study, which will be of great use to both of us.

Now that we have found a house, our biggest concern is out of the way. That sounds a little strange, since we still need jobs. But the thing is, there are plenty of jobs in Charlotte, but the "pickin's were slim" on houses. We are both looking for jobs and that is a huge priority, but we feel incredibly relieved that we found a house. Praise the Lord! Seriously! Praise the Lord!

So if you are in the Charlotte area and know of any decent jobs, we'd love to know about them :) Also, we are excited to meet new people and be a part of a great church community and group of friends. We are going to miss our family, friends and church members so much, but we are very excited for this time of adventure and newness!

Also, I plan to still keep the blogging up during this move, but it has been tough lately to be consistent. If you don't see a post for a day or two, it's probably because I am packing my 7,788,998,022nd box, or doing something related to that ;)

Do you have any moving tips? Or are you from Charlotte and can recommend a church, a job, or even just your favorite restaurant? Comment below.


  1. Hmmm, looks like my comment didn't post! Anywho, YAYYY!!! So happy you found a house!!! Praise the Lord!!! Where did you end up renting?? My hubby and I are members of Sovereign Grace Presbyterian Church, we LOVE it! The people are amazing and the preaching is solid. We're very blessed to be there! It's located in South Park if you're interested in checking it out! Hopefully we can meet soon! Would love to have a blogging friend nearby! :)

  2. That's so exciting that you found a house! I bet that is a huge relief! I've never been to the area but my brother served his mission for our church there and loved it!

    1. Oh cool! Yeah, other than the fried bacon burger (#glorious) that I had, I know nothing about the area, so its exciting! :)
      Mormon mission?

  3. This is awesome, Kristin! I'm so happy for you and this new adventure you're about to embark on! Will be praying the perfect job opportunity will come your way.

  4. How exciting that you found a place to stay! That's definitely needed. And it's actually really cool to be moving to a place that has a lot of jobs open--I feel like in most places in Michigan, the only state I've lived in recently, that can't be said. It's much better to be moving to a place where there isn't a job shortage!
