Finally GOOD News, Great Music, and Weekend Update!!

Many of you have followed my last several posts about my job hunt being very unsuccessful and I'm happy to report that thanks to Kelly Services I've got my first temp job!!! My mom has been trying to get me to go to them for some assistance for a while now so yesterday I finally did. It took nearly 3 hours to complete all the paperwork, interview, and introduction information that they require, but it paid off! :) It's only a 3 day job as a front desk assistant at our local junior college, but at least it's something!

I've always waited until much closer to Thanksgiving to break down and start listening to Christmas music, BUT when Michael Buble' released his Christmas album on October 21st I decided I'd wait until after Halloween at least.

I've enjoyed it soooooo much so far! His voice is like sweet honey to my ears and oh so very sexy! Haha! I strongly recommend it!!

Another CD that I am really enjoying that was just released yesterday is Miranda Lambert's Four The Record!

I'm only about halfway through it, but I love every single song so far! I watched her perform on Regis and Kelly this morning and she looked and sounded so awesome!

Last weekend, my hubby and I made the 5 and a half hour drive to Louisiana to go visit my Grandma and Uncle. I hadn't seen my Grandma in nearly 5 years since she just moved back from living in Arkansas. Between school, my sister's hospitalization, and the wedding driving to Arkansas was just not a possibility. She's aging very quickly and health is unfortunately not very good so we're planning on visiting every couple months. She's in assisted living so we stayed in my Uncle's gorgeous house and spent some good quality time with him too. Saturday night, we met my cousin and er fiance' at a steakhouse and sushi restaurant that was so very delicious!! After dinner we went to the movies and saw In Time.

I really loved it and especially love when I can't guess the way I think the movie is going to end. We left to head back home after breakfast Sunday morning since we needed to come pick up Rowdy from my parents since they were gracious enough to watch him for us. :)

Have a great Wednesday!!
