working girl.

Let me just start by saying, today has been a fantastic day. 

The biggest challenge I've had since moving to Georgia has been adjusting to a pretty empty weekly calendar. I went from student teaching five days a week, plus organizational meetings Sunday-Wednesday, to a pretty open schedule. It didn't bother me during the summer, because Kyle only had one meeting a week and we had a great time being completely lazy together. But since he has started school and I didn't find a teaching job, it has been a bit of a struggle. Don't get me wrong, I have loved getting to sleep in late and stay in sweatpants all day if I feel like it. I have just had my fill of those rather dull days. 

Well ladies and gentlemen, today I got a job! 

About a month ago my family came to visit and we took my sister to look at wedding dresses here in Atlanta. I fell in love with one of the shops we went to. All of the girls working there were great and it was a more relaxed bridal shop than most. I inquired about job openings and a week later sent in my resume. I had two interviews this week and today they called to offer me a full-time job. I could not be more excited!!

Like I said, the shop is really different from any wedding dress shops I have ever been to. In addition to the wedding dress side of things, it has a boutique attached to it. I'll start out working on that side of things and eventually transition to bridal. How fun is that?! I think it is going to be a great experience and am looking forward to my first day (Monday!). I am so excited to have something to fill my days with and to hopefully meet some great new people. 

I still hope to have my own classroom one day and to use everything I learned about working with children, but I know that this is going to be a wonderful experience.

Thanks for letting me share about our exciting day. We celebrated with a Starbucks trip this morning, fajitas for dinner and are about to enjoy cupcakes and a movie. I hope all of you have had wonderful weekends as well! Can't wait to share all about my first big day!
