Everybody's working for the weekend..

I got a job! I have been searching all week for one and yesterday I got one! I'm really excited because I needed a job to where I can walk to work because Chase will need the car for his job. There were not that many options in where I could work seeing as there is one little shopping center, but I'm happy with what i got. Panera Bread! I have worked at these kind of stores before and have loved it and I figured for two months its not that bad! I can walk to work and they are hiring me as a manager!! The guy interviewing me said he would love to have me be a shift manager, which is awesome! I am so relieved now that I found a job just to help us out while we are here in Missouri so we can save more money. The only down fall is that Chase works from about 12 to 10 at night and my hours are going to be 5:30 in the morning ( yes I know, I don't know how I'm going to do it) till about three. So our schedules are not perfect but its only for two months so I think i can handle it :) I am loving Missouri, I'm getting to learn my way around here a little better and they people are so nice and our ward is great too!! There is one other couple here as well that Chase works with and I love his wife! It's fun to have another girl around to hang out with, while we wait for our men to get home from work we either lay out by the pool or watch Anne of green gables, its great :)We have already gone on some double dates and had Sunday dinner with them. Life is good and I can not complain.. I miss you all though! Come visit :)

I LOVE that first picture of you two, so beautiful! And about being to work at 5:30 every morn....you'll get used to it. I've been getting up at 4:30 to be to work at 5:30 for a year now, it sucks, but its nice to be done with a full days work early in the afternoon. It will seriously feel like your back in seminary again.....but its not that bad because you're going to go make money, instead of having to go look at Don Markham for 50 minutes....oh those were the days!

You are the most beautiful bride ever. I absolutely LOVE the new pictures. THe dress is gorgeous and you just radiate. How fun! The time you and Chase are in now will be your favorite. Even though your schedules aren't perfect it makes every minute sweeter. It's so nice to have friends there too. Good luck with the new job. It will be fun but I'm SO NOT a morning person.
