the big news

oh my GOODNESS! i have been dying to share this news for so long, but I wanted to make sure everything was official before i shouted the news from a mountaintop.

we.

have.

jobs!

like....career jobs. like... what we learned about in college. like.... actually applying our degrees!

today it became official and we gave our two weeks notice to our current jobs. also, notice i keep saying WE? thats right. we BOTH have jobs with the same company. ahhhhh!!! i will be an environmental scientist, and josh will be a wildlife biologist. you have no idea how excited we are about this. after searching and searching, unemployment, putting in time at $10/hour jobs, dozens of emails sent and resumes written, pestering emails and phone calls, etc... it has finally paid off.

we will be starting right after christmas, and after some training we will be working here in utah! we have started looking into buying a house, and we are going to look at some this weekend. anyways, there is the big news. i've been waiting to tell you all for months! also, i reallllly hope this doesnt come off as braggy at all, because i do NOT want it to come off that way, but i am just so excited i want to share it! eeeeeeeps!
