Well life is definately gonna be picking up for us. No we arent pregnant. But I recently changed offices for work, I love it!!! Its a lot closer to home, & its crazy busy, I come home exhausted but happy. Its a nice change, & the new schedule is taking some getting use to. Nick has been looking for a welding job for a while now, he is certified in mig, so he can have a job in that area. He applied to his friends work, did awesome, but his timing was way long. They were happy w/ what they saw so they called him back for a second interview, the second on didn't go so swell.... he just called it & quit. He was so sad & frustrated, but after talking I told him for good measure he should call back in a week to atleast follow up. Well he did, he was told they hadn't made a decision. So a little ray of sunshine crept in & became the whole sun!!! He did infact get a job offer, turned in his 2 weeks notice, had to go take a drug test & he starts next monday!!!! We are truely excited, the great thing about this job is there is plenty room for advancement, & he goes to work early & comes home early, hopefully if he can keep this job for a while, when I quit work (due to a baby) we will have pleanty of time, & now he's the one with an ideal schedule.On top of all of this fun, we are so sad to say we got released from being primary teachers. I got a new calling, activities coordinator (enrichment leader), I am so nervous about the responsibility that has been placed in my lap, but i have faith. I am a little intimidated, but know with heavenly fathers help it will be ok.Nick got a new calling too... elders quorum secratary! That means he's gonna have to help with visits, & his meetings will be on opposite nights of my meetings, & I'm a lot nervpus about not seeing him so much. Plus my calling, he's gonna get roped into helping me set up chairs, & helping me any way he can. I assume the same for me to help him....Also on top of this, Nick starts school this week. This is his last semester & hopefully he can get a couple more certifications so he can do all sortsa welds. But again, more time away from home. I know this is short lived, & I am so proud of his accomplishments, & greatful that he is so willing to help me set up to be a stay at home mom when that time comes. I just feel like we took a big step into adult land, & incured a big amount of responsibility, but heavenly father knows what he is doing i guess.... i know, it will definately keep us busy. No idle hands in the Anderson home for sure!!!!

- I met Nick through his x-girlfriend....I always love starting our dating story like that, makes it seem like some scandalous affair, however I met her the day before I met him at a stake activity. The beginning of the next week he added me to facebook, and later that week I accepted. I felt so bad that I had not checked it earlier, so I gave him my number to text me sometime. He didn't waste anytime texting me after he read my facebook message. He came over that night, and we watched Without A Paddle. I wasn't interested in a relationship then, just thought that I would gain a new friend outta the deal, I gained that and so much more. We have been inseparable since then. Our different backgrounds, me being a country girl, and him being a city boy creates interesting moments daily, most in which we end up dying laughing at. We are so very fortunate to have each other in our lives. I am so grateful to be able to wake up next to an amazing man every day of my life.
