The new furniture

We have new furniture! :) One of Brian's wonderful clients gave us a Secretary and a hutch for free for Brian's great job of being an agent...or at least that is what I like to think! Aren't they fabulous! They really help bring the house together!

Valentine's Day

What a wonderful day! It all began by NOT having to wake up at 3:30 AM to head on over to Starbucks. Brian and I woke up a little after 6 in the morning. He actually got out of bed...I stayed until 7 AM. We had breakfast together (oatmeal and grapefruit that Brain prepared) and then went to the grocery store to pick up 4 lobster tail which we planned on having for dinner that night. We invited Brian's dad (Dave) and Connie over for a nice V-Day dinner. We made clam dip, home-made Clam Chowder, lobster tail and couscous. For dessert we had homemade raspberry chip ice cream (which wasn't fully finished so we added some delicious Bluebell Homemade Vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries! It was wonderful and a lot of fun to enjoy with family! I never knew I could cook lobster tail but look at me go (with the help of Brian, Dave & Connie)! :) Hope y'all are having a great Sunday taking it easy! Brian and I sure have!

Oh...and a shout out to Valerie for introducing us to Fellowship Church of Christ!

A nice little update

A lot has been happening but nothing so big that I have taken the time to post about. I am really enjoying my new career with Apollo College. It is such a blessing to have a great working environment and a solid team already in place!
I was able to have training in Phoenix last week with all the HS Admission Reps. It was so nice to be able to place faces and names together. The knowledge and feedback was also so extremely helpful.

Last Saturday was a big day for me. It was my last day with Starbucks. I have spent the last 2 and half years working for this company and have enjoyed every moment of it. I cherish the friends that I have made with my manager and co-workers as well as the frequent customers that graced us with their presence every Saturday! Brian is thrilled that I am finally finished and I will actually be able to sleep in on a Saturday morning. I must say it is bitter sweet. I am thankful looking forward to tomorrow morning and knowing that I will be setting my alarm for 3:30 AM. However, knowing that I will not be seeing those familiar faces is sad to me.

Another blessing of closing this chapter in my life is now feeling confident that I can be more involved with the church we have been attending. Fellowship c of c is a quaint church that meets at the YMCA every Sunday morning. There are probably about 60 people that attend and Brian and I really have been enjoying it!

We are still debating whether or not we should be looking for a roommate. We really would rather not but the financial help right now would be VERY beneficial. I am finally selling a lot of our "singlehood" items on Craigslist since we were able to receive so many nice wonderful gifts from the wedding festivities. I will also be making a run over to The Salvation Army for a hefty donation and things that have been packed into the back seat of my car and in the trunk for a week now. Now if we could find someone to just take our non-working refrigerator away from our property that would be wonderful!

That's all I've got for now! Happy Friday and happy day before Valentine's Day!
