quick update

Life has been a bit crazy over the last couple of weeks, here's a numbered update since I'm short on time and brain cells in this moment.

1.  I have a part time job.  I'm working at Charming Charlie (a women's fashion accessory boutique) and the 7-day opening store stretch ended today...grand opening tomorrow!  I will be working tomorrow and Wednesday and will have worked 8 days straight as of Thursday morning.  It's been really exhausting to set up a 10,000 square foot store, but SOOO MUCH FUN!  I've dressed mannequins, neck forms, picked out jewelry/hand bags for displays and learned how to merchandise.  LOVE IT.  I've also made friends there... which leads me to #2.

2.  I have friends.  We've gone to lunch during our breaks at work, went to happy hour/shopping today and have a plan for trail running tomorrow before the shift.  I could literally cry as I type this.  For those of you who have talked to me over the last 2 months, you know how desperate I've been for relationships with solid women... and it's FINALLY happening!  Thank. GOD!

3.  Visitors and Travel.  Britt and Dave will be here on Friday for the weekend and I couldn't be more excited to entertain our first visitors!!!  We have plans for the wine walk, golfing (boys), great food, Tahoe, and much more.  It will just be amazing to spend time with people we know and love so dearly.  I will be in SLC over the weekend of the 2nd for Dani's shower, mom will be here during the weekend of the 16th, and then we fly to LAX to be with the Whites over Easter weekend.  We're so stoked to get away and hang out with close friends this spring!

4.  Church.  We found a church that suits us quite well and continues to challenge us on a weekly basis.  We're both testing 'community groups' and plan on getting pretty involved.

5.  SLC.  I still really miss it and (not so) secretly hate hearing about parties, gatherings, events, small group, and friendships just because I can't be there to be a part.  However, I'm slowly starting to gain confidence in God's plan for us here in Reno and look forward to creating memories in this chapter of our life together.
