Big, Big News!

Do you want to start off with the good news or the regular news? I like to save the best for last, so let’s cover the basics first. 

Dinner last night came together really easily.  Billy wasn’t going to be home from practice for a while, so I ate on my own and then warmed his up when he got back.  With such an easy meal, it was a snap.  Ham steak grilled in a pan with whole wheat penne + parmesan cheese + basil and cooked baby carrots:

Dessert was two oatmeal raisin cookies + milk… and then for breakfast today, this happened again:

Redundant, yes… but still so delicious!!

For lunch today, nothing new:  Mixed green salad with carrots, chicken, and BV, plus the last slice of whole wheat veggie pizza from the other night.

All my leftovers are finally used up so I promise there will be some new meals coming up soon!

Post-lunch I snacked on some dark chocolate covered raisins + peanut butter M&Ms:

After all, I was celebrating!  Why, you ask?  Well, here’s the good news. 

Drumroll please…….

I got a job!!  Like a real, full-time, career-launching, salary+benefits, big girl job!!

I was beyond excited to get the offer this morning, since I’d been waiting to hear for a few weeks now.  I couldn’t wait to share the news with everyone, and the support and congratulations I received from my family, friends, and coworkers was just wonderful!  I’m so lucky to have so many great people in my life, and I’m so happy things are falling into place.  I’m not going to lie, it’s a little scary, but it’s also such a relief knowing I have something lined up, and I’m so excited to start this new chapter! 


On to the next step: apartment hunting!!
