What a Relief!!

For about a month before coming back out to Utah, I was applying for a lot of jobs out here. I really wanted to get a good job that was full time with benefits so that I could support us while Eric finishes school. I hadn't heard back from anyone before we left Virginia. I was getting a little nervous. When we got back to Utah, I started applying to more places. On the first Friday that we were here, I got called into an interview for the next Thursday for a job at BYU. I went to the interview and thought it went well. I felt rally good about it until I was told that they were going to start doing second interviews now and that they would let me know by Friday or Monday. On Friday I sat by my phone all day hoping for a call. I heard nothing back all day... until 4!! Talk about making someone nervous. They asked me to come back for an interview early Monday morning. They also said they were very impressed with me. Well I went in on Monday morning, and after about a 45 minute interview, they offered me the job!!! I was so excited. Eric and I had been prayin really hard about this job, because we'vre both heard that BYU is such a great place to work and that they have great benefits. I feel very blessed to have gotten this job. I started work the next day and so far I like it. So now I am officially an advisor in the Bachelor of General Studies office in the Department of Continuing Education. Everyone there is so nice, and I think that I will really like working there. It is close to home, and if I want to, I can see Eric.

Yesterday when I came home from work, Eric made me close my eyes because there was somthing that he wanted to show me. I went into the kitchen and heard he getting something out of the fridge. Well when I opened my eyes I saw the following:

Eric's parents and sister sent me this wonderful edible bouquet to congratulate me on getting the job. It wa so nice of them. I really appreciate it. Both our families were both very excited for me. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family and such great in-laws. Here is me with my delicious bouquet!!
