This morning at 9:15 I was showing my co-worker the video of *Doug getting his head shaved *(priorities, right!) when my phone rang and it was a Nashville number. Instantly I freaked out a little then tried to compose myself and prepare for news - good or bad.

THEY OFFERED ME THE JOB! I could not be more thrilled. Even if we weren't moving, this is a job I would be interested in doing anyway. What a blessing, and thank you Lord that it all worked out in the end. I'll be working at Vanderbilt under the Development/Alumni Relations department, specifically doing research to discover new donor prospects. It will be interesting and challenging and something I'm excited to sink my teeth into.

Today, about a bazillion of you have called/texted/sent messages of congratulations and to be honest, I am completely blown away! We have such wonderful friends who love and support us and genuinely want to see the Lord's will for our lives.'s setting in that we're actually leaving and now I have to put on my big girl panties and deal with it...

Now we're both Vanderbilt Commodores...!!! Doug and I are going out to celebrate tonight!

*Video of the head-shaving will be posted soon!*

Congrats! An old friend and onetime boyfriend of mine was a Vandy grad. He even did crew.
