life catch up

i feel like some months i do really well  updating about our lives, but the past few have not been so good. 

so for a quick catch up...

we graduated on the 11th of april. it was really exciting to have us both graduating at the same time. it was a very long day full of packing the apartment and cleaning. then going to the graduation ceremony. but we were so lucky to have our families come to support us and help us get all moved out of our apartment. 

during the business and communication ceremony, one of the speakers talked about how we need to live in the moment and for the moment. she talked about how looking back on her time at byu-i she cried because she didn't like this, or wanted that. but now that she was getting ready to leave her heart was aching for the crocked walls in her apartment where the pictures of her family hung, the freezing walks to school, and meeting some of the most amazing people she had ever met. so of course, me being pregnant and all i started sobbing. fail. but it really make me think about how amazing my time up in rexburg was. i can honestly say it was some of the hardest years of my life, but some of the most amazing too. and now that the fact that we graduated really has hit me. i am so sad that we won't be going back to rexburg this fall. that is our home. and that little freezing town with nothing to do will always have a little piece of my heart. 
when they called our names for us to walk, they called us together and we were able to walk across the stage together holdings hands. it was so fun cool! 

we moved back to meridian to live with my parents for a 'few weeks'. thinking that we would find a job fast and be out on our own. well... false. it has taken a little longer then expected. but we are getting there. 

after weeks and weeks of applying for jobs, interviewing and knowing 'that was the job', to get no's i was getting to the point in thinking that maybe this whole living with my parent would be a permanent thing. which was the last thing that i wanted, no offense to my family. i am so grateful for their hospitality and willingness to let us stay, but i am ready to be on my own. then finally, this week rhett got a job as a paralegal at a law firm here in meridian! and it all happened so fast! he applied tuesday, got a call back, interviewed wednesday morning, got the job offer wednesday afternoon and started thursday! it was an answer to all of our prayers! so now we are looking for an apartment to rent so we can move out and be on our own again. as of right now rhett will be working there till next summer/fall and then we will move somewhere for him to attend law school. kind of scary but i am excited for the adventure! and glad we can be around family when the baby comes this fall:)

and on the 2nd of june we found out that we are having a little girl! we couldn't be more excited :) now we just need to make some money and figure out a name and she can come! well we might need a little more then that to happen first, but she will be here before we know it!
