about us

We're from the Syracuse, NY, area and started dating when we went to BYU-Idaho for college. We were married December 2008 and have a daughter, Sophie. We will be welcoming a new baby in November 2013! We currently live in Mason, Ohio, near lots of family! Drew is working at Liberty Mutual Insurance as an Auto Claims Adjuster. Carissa is now a stay-at-home wife and momma! We know there's more in store for us in our future, and we say, "Come what may and love it!"

What's Up With Us Lately...

It's been almost 3 months since the wedding, the parties, and gatherings with family, but we're still staying busy!  Drew is working at the Carousel Center Regal Cinemas, where he worked before college and his mission (his dad was also manager there after Drew left-but has since become manager of another movie theater).  He was having a hard time finding a job here while I was still working at Blockbuster (yipee), then fell back on a job he knew was guaranteed: the theater.  So he's working about 40 hours per week in Syracuse while I idle away at home... I'm only getting, at MOST, 15 hours per week at Blockbuster.  I'm trying to find another job and have some applications from random spots here in Cicero to turn in.  Hopefully I'll be making a little more money soon.
A little fun thing for me this past month: I legally changed my name.  I have a new Social Security card and new Driver License with my new name on each!  Very cool!  As far as Driver Licenses go, Drew got his about 2 weeks ago and he is loving the new independence.  (He laughs and says it will be a fun little trivia fact in years to come that he actually got married before he got his license.)  Very exciting though!!
SO, the newest update is that about our moving status.  We were going to be headed back out west by the end of this month, if not in April, so Drew could continue on in school, but that will no longer be happening.  Drew has differed this Winter Semester (January-April) and is technically back on "track" in the Fall Semester.  We received his differment approval letter stating that he is differed for this Winter Semester but will be ineligible to take classes in his "off track" (a.k.a. Spring Semester starting at the end of April-July).  Our newly formed plan is to stay here in the Syracuse area (thanks to Rick and Julie Drogowski, my parents) and earn and save as much as we can before heading out to Idaho in the Summer.  We are tentatively planning to leave between July and August.

For those who don't have our address:
Drew and Carissa Barron
8532 Old Towne Path
Cicero, New York 13039

By the way... as for our families in Ohio, Kansas (and Missouri), and Utah, we are planning on making a fun road trip out of our drive out west, so we want to maybe stop to see our family!  Most of you haven't met Drew, so that will be fun!
That's about it for now!
