CELEBRAAATEE GOOD TIMES


Want to know why I was so stinkin' giddy yesterday at work? Hmm... maybe because I GOT AN OFFER!

That is right... for those of you who don't know, I've been working at a Financial Firm since February as a temp. Back in April they asked me to stay for a few months for 40 hours a week until about August. Well, August came and went... & I waited, and waited, and waited. 

Everyday when I'd talk to Caleb he would ask "did you ask them yet?!" and I would do the walk of shame... telling him "no, I just couldn't". See, if you know anything about me... I hate confrontation. I mean, HATE it. I'd do almost anything to avoid it. But in this case, I had every right to know where my job was headed. I mean, I'm going to be a married woman after all. We all know that stability is a NEED!

So, I finally mustered up the courage to walk into the big guys office; ask him for the job that everyone knew I deserved, and guess what? After a simple 7 minute meeting; I had a job. Like, a real... full time... salary paid... FREAKIN J-O-B!!!

I ran to the bathroom I was so excited! I took a few pictures of myself (above), did a happy dance in front of the mirror, and said "you go, girl". Immediately I told my best friends and when I came back to my desk; there was a pretty little "Official Offer Letter" laying on my keyboard. EEEK!

God is so good. I mean, really. So.. you know Caleb and I had to celebrate! After convincing Caleb, we decided --screw our low carb kick... we're getting Mexican...deep fried Mexican at that

Even better? I lost 5 pounds this week. Yeah, we're getting personal bloggers. Deal ;)

AHHHH... I think this new "official" job means some new clothes?
