Life is Good

So I wanted to drop everyone a line and let them know I am still alive. Life couldn't be any better right now.

1. Gini and I are making great wedding plans. They are coming along great and hopefully we'll have a lot of the big ones out of the way so when March rolls around we can just focus on things that go wrong.

We have been registering which is a ton of fun. I really enjoy seeing our lives come together. It is a lot of fun and I feel that since we are both a little older than most of our friends who got married we have watched them all get ready and now we are able to have our own time. It hasn't been a chore yet.

2. School is great. Funniest thing happened in my class the other day. I have a freshman development class. The teacher says, ohh Chris has announcement. I look up and see this kid just beaming, I got my mission call...then another kid pipes up, yea me too. Wow not what I was expecting. I am old. School is going great though this semester and I am really enjoying myself.

3. I am having A LOT of success on the job front. I wanted to share this with my family because I know they have been praying for me. I had one job interview today, one tomorrow, one on Friday and one next Tuesday. I am really excited for all of them. Two falls ago I did an internship helping a small business owner figure out some finances. It was a lot more than I could chew at first and I had to ask for help from my professors and do a lot of research on my own, but it was so rewarding. I learned so much. I have been looking for a similar job to that, and I have been blessed with three sweet interviews. We'll know February 1 if I get any 2nd rounds. It will be interesting to see where I end up.

I want to say thanks to all those who have remembered us in their prayers and especially me on my job hunt.
