Whirlwind of a Weekend!

Hi folks! I hope you all are enjoying the last day of your weekend.....I'm kinda sad that it's almost over because it has been such a great adventure! A lot has happened since the last time I posted so I'm going to update you a little bit....

I finally heard back from the job I've been interviewing for last Wednesday to let me know I'm still the top candidate for the position and I'll be getting a call to schedule a final I'm keeping my fingers crossed and praying that this is where God wants me to be. I'm trying to keep my spirits up about not having a job, knowing God has a position just waiting, but its getting tough.

J also received a call from HR to let him know he was being offered a conditional job offer pending his final interview!!! So excited for this news!! He's finally gotten a break and it was for something that he really wanted. Things for him are starting to look up :)

Later in the week, I saw that the job I have been interviewing was re-posted on the Internet and it kinda bummed me out. I wish I could just find out either way. I know I need to be patient, but I do my best to be professional and prepared for my interviews, and I would like the common courtesy of professionalism from my interviewers. Have any of you had experience with unprofessional potential employers?

Other than the job thing.....J and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary!! It's very hard for me to believe that we have been dating for a year already. When we met, it was almost instant that we knew we would be together for a long time :) J still doesn't believe me that I was the first one to try and make a move when we first met.

For our anniversary, we acted like little kids! J and I went to an arcade and played the day away while it poured and poured outside. We weren't going to let the rain spoil our day! All the games were old school arcade games that we love!

I apologize for the mess I was!! It was raining outside.

My favorite game!!

Had a little trouble....the machine tried to eat my tickets!

Enjoying some great greasy (not healthy at all) food. I promise I will be back on my diet soon. I have to!!!

You have to have dessert....And a few more games to top it all off!

After the arcade and lunch we headed home to get ready for a movie. I took J to see....

And gave him this....

And made him this...
Not the best picture...but I took a post-it pad and wrote a reason why I love him on every page :)

We had such a great time. It reminded me how much I love him and how excited I am to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!! God has blessed me in so many ways.

This weekend was also J's nephew's pre-school graduation....

T-Man is third from the right. He looked sooo cute in his little khaki's and button-up with the sleeves rolled up. His momma sure knows how to dress him!!

T-Man's little sister saying a prayer with Grandma and Pop Pop.

J with his niece, Em Em.

It was such a blessed week! I hope every one's week was just as great as mine!


  1. I love all your pics...looks like you had a great time! Congrats on your 1 year!

  2. What a great weekend! I'll be praying for good news for both of the jobs. Happy anniversary, that post-it note idea is so cute. Although for some reason, the photo of what you got for him would not load.

  3. Did you like the movie? I wanted to see it... but it looked sketchy. Was it good?
    Praying for the job too!

  4. You are too sweet...I'm just now seeing your post of "T Man's" graduation. We are blessed to have someone as wonderful and true as you in our family. :-)
