Can you say PROMOTION?!?!

Woooooo hoooooo-before going home to UT for Christmas break I applied for a new position at Tech. After lots of interviews, I found out this past week that I got it! I am so excited to start my new job. I will be the new Senior Research Specialist for Tech. I feel so blessed to be the one to get the position. I will now be working directly with Development Officers to bring in donations to the school. I will also do a lot more, but to be honest, I don't know all the job entails. I just know that it is completely applicable to my college degree, I received a great raise (reasoning behind me holding money in the pic), and I can now say I have officially started a career. Due to the 2 weeks notice policy and all the deadlines I must make in my current position, I will not start until Feb. 4th. Come Feb. 4th I am a new woman........or just a new Senior Specialist.

Guess what's new with Trav?!

Were you able to guess? Trav has recently gotten glasses. He has had a hard time seeing distance for a while, so he decided to go in and get his eyes checked. Yippee-ki-yay, he can finally see! He is really happy with his new and improved vision and glasses. I'll be honest, upon first seeing him I wasn't quite sure about the frames, but now realize they are completely him- a little silly and original. Gotta love this cute guy!

P. S. I also gave him a haircut-not too shabby aye? Miraculously enough, he let me do it. It's not perfect, but you know what they say....."practice makes perfect." We'll see if he'll let me cut it again in a few weeks.

Blast from the Past

While in UT, I was able to get together with some of my old soccer buddies. Shelby, Courtney A.K.A. Buck-it and I were able to remenisce about the good ol' days and also catch up on all the present day events that are going on in life. While growing up, we were the best of friends-kinda like peas and carrots. I'm just glad that we were able to get together--I love you ladies.....hopefully next time Lauren will be able to make it!

Back to life, Back to reality

We just returned home from our Christmas break in UT. It was such a great break but went by way too fast. While in UT, we were able to attend family parties, put together puzzles, watch movies, celebrate my sister-in-law's B-Day, and see the snow-lots and lots of it!!! We also were able to get together with some of our most favorite friends-hang out, eat delicious sushi, etc. All in all, the break was much needed and so much fun!!! We were so happy to be with our families for the holiday, but are also relieved to be back in Lubbock's 65 degree weather. Vacations and holidays are wondrous things, but always come to an end--back to work for me and school for Trav. It'll take some time to get back to normalcy-wish us luck cuz sometimes normalcy and reality hurts! P. S. was UT always that cold while growing up?!?!
