Update... and GREAT NEWS

Hi my wonderful friends! So, I have a lot to update everyone on! First of all, I AM MARRIED :) My new husband Brad and I got married on June 22 (couple weeks ago) Thank you to everything that gave us their congratulations.  We greatly appreciated it! We went to Casey Keys, Florida for our honeymoon for two weeks. It was absolutely wonderful to have a place on the beach.  I did not want to leave. (who ever does) Anyways, we are back to the house in NC and we are loving every minute of married life!!

BUT to the OTHER good news..........My husband got a NEW job.  He has been looking for something better than what he had!  He got a job as a High School Biology Teacher and is coaching football and wrestling in the same county that I teach in!  God has really blessed us in so many ways!

Let me tell you the story on how he got the job! He went for his screening interview at the county office. (have to interview at county before you can interview with principals) He went and meet with a lady that I bubble letter love!! She is the nicest person you will ever meet and is always there for teachers if you need her.  She interviewed him the DAY BEFORE our wedding.  When they found out his wedding was the next day.  They made him sit there while they called principals from three different schools that had openings.  The county office arranged all three schools to meet at one location that SAME day and had Brad go meet them and interview will all three school at the same time.  WOW, isn't that stressful for someone that had no idea what to do. (Brad told me that I didn't prepare him for that ha ha) He pulled it off amazingly, like always.  We got married the next day and set off for our honeymoon.  The County office lady emailed him several times while we were on the honeymoon and on the fourth of July she sent an email stating that one of the principals wanted to meet with him again when he got back.  We got back on Sunday and Brad emailed the principal.  She called him at 8:00am the next morning and asked him to come in at 12:00 that day.  He went to meet her and they spoke some more and he meet with the Athletic Director about coaching and they said they would make a decision by the end of the day.  The principal at the school called him at 2:00 and offered him the job! MIRACLES do happen! I am so proud of my husband for everything that he has done to get where he is! Now we are a teacher family :) kindergarten and high school teachers! He is still in shock because it happened so fast.  But it was a wonderful first day back from our honeymoon and the beginning of our married life together!  :)

Here are some pictures from our wedding.... :)

  6. Congrats!! Such beautiful wedding pictures! I noticed in your bio you mention how weird it will be for your kids to call you by your new name this year. I got married last summer and just want to say, it is weird, BUT-- I actually felt like I got used to my "new" name so much quicker because I had 24 little people saying it All. The. Time. So if anything, it helps :)
