Book Signing!!!

So, I've been in CO visiting fam--especially my sis who just had her precious little girl last week! :)  And yesterday my Mom and I found out that--our favorite blogger--The Pioneer Woman was going to be in Denver this weekend!  So, my parents and I went down to her book signing today.  We had been planning on going to McGuckin Hardware in Boulder anyway, and we made the stop in Lodo at the Tattered Cover Book Store to see PW too!

We got there around 1:30 and even though we got tickets to see her/have her sign our books we had to wait about 4 hours before we could.  We had a great day and afternoon though, and it was totally worth the wait!!  We got a pic to prove we got to meet here below.  And may I add that PW is even more beautiful in person!  Plus, she's super sweet and nice!  :)  How cool!  And what awesome timing that it was when I was in CO!  :)

We're an Aunt and Uncle again!

The newest addition to our family was born on February 3rd, and she's just beautiful!  Mom and baby are doing really well, and her siblings just love her so much!  :)  Here's a sneak peek...
I just love those little baby hands! So precious. So tiny.  So perfect.
Congrats A&J she's definitely a keeper!  ;)  Can't wait to watch her grow!

PTL! I got a job today!

You know what I think is really funny?  When I woke up this morning, I just thought it was going to be a rather normal day.  Little did I know what God had planned for me though!  :)

I took J to work because I had a couple of errands to run today.  I got home after taking him and got to work on some crafty things and also some cooking.  Then around 11am, I heard the phone ring (as in home phone that we have right now, but will be getting rid of in the next week or so) and since it's usually no one but solicitors I wasn't even going to check it.  Then I thought I'd better, so I walked over and saw who was calling.  It was this awesome place I just applied to about a week ago.

So I answered the phone and they not only wanted an interview with me, but they wanted to do it today.  So I put on some dress clothes and drove right over.  It was a great interview and she ended up offering me the job -- even though she had another interview to do this afternoon -- and I accepted it!!  Cool huh?  It was all such a God thing with the timing of the call today, the interview today and just the whole job in general!

So I am now an employee of a high-end cooking store!  I couldn't have asked for a more perfect job, and I'm sure it's going to be a great fit!  My boss already seems really nice, and thinks that customer service is #1--which is what I think too!  :)  God has once again not only provided for us, but completely gone beyond my expectations!  So, praise the Lord!!!  Hope y'all are doing well!  :)
