Big News...a little late

I have a new job. I've already been working there for 3 weeks...I've been a bit of a blog slacker. It's completely crazy how God put all the pieces into place. I was starting to think there was a chance that I might want to eventually go back to working in tax. I wasn't thinking anytime soon, just sometime out in the future. I even talked about it with my boss one day. The next day I went to lunch with my friend Amy (who I worked with at PwC), and she got in the car with a job description and asked me if I wanted a new job. That is the short version of how I find myself working at Brinker (the company that owns Chili's, On the Border, Macaroni Grill, and Maggiano's). It all happened so fast and has been so crazy that I have barely had time to process the fact that I've changed jobs, but I know that God's hand was undeniably in it and that it has been a good change.

One of the greatest parts of my job is the comp card I get to eat for free at Chili's and half off at all the other restaurants. The funny part is what I have to do to earn it. This Monday & Tuesday I will be working at Chili's. One day in the kitchen (yes, they are going to let me cook), and one day as a hostess. I think it will be an adventure for sure!!

Other than the new job, the last month has been pretty full. Amy, Kami, Erin and I drove to Amarillo for Billy & Katherine's wedding, we had D-Town (our disciple now), had a birthday party for PapaDub's 75th, and celebrated LB's birthday.

I'm moving next weekend, and then headed to Brazil the next Friday. Needless to say, my blogging is probably going to stay sparse for a while!

So excited for you and all that's going on right now! Oh, and don't forget that there was someone else in that car going back and forth to A-town....someone who was in serious need of caffeine at one point, if I recall. Better now! =)
