So, today is my last day of work here at the library. I will miss it. This has been the best college job I could have ever had. I loved working here. I learned a lot and I made a lot of friends. It's sad to go. If it weren't for the hiring freeze I could probably keep working here, but, alas, it is not to be. Oh well. I'll have to find my fortunes elsewhere. I am looking and applying at a lot of places, so if anyone hears of anything, please let me know. I feel pretty confident that I will find a job soon. Things just need to pick up. Although, I think Monday will feel pretty good. I'll get Eli off to school, and I won't have to go to work or school. That's really nice!!! Eli's excited for this coming semester. He's got a lot of hard classes, but he is really smart and I know he can handle it. I was feeling a bit nostalgic for school earlier. I do love the fall when school starts. Well, I love the first week of school, then I'm over it. The thing that cured me of my nostalgia was getting Eli's books at the bookstore. Yuck! I'm so glad I didn't have to buy some too. Anyway, that's about all. I'd appreciate prayers for me to find a job.
Oh, the other exciting thing is that Eli and I are going to a soccer World Cup qualifying game next Saturday. It's El Salvador v. USA at the Real Salt Lake stadium. It's Eli's birthday present from me, just a little late. He's been wanting to go since he heard about it, I think he's pretty excited. We got good seats too, it should be a lot of fun. Even though I'm not a big soccer (or sports) fan, I think the excitment and enthusiasm of the crowd will make it really great.
That's about all. We're going to a birthday party tonight and then I think we'll go see Julie and Julia this weekend. Maybe I should be a blogging chef. I could blog about how to cook in a tiny kitchen with no air conditioning in the summer. I guess that's a pretty small niche group, huh?
Have a good weekend everyone!

Big Events!!

So, since I last posted we've had a lot of big events. We celebrated our one year anniversary, Eli's 24th birthday, and my graduation from BYU. Here are a lot of pictures.
For our anniversary we went back to the Little America Hotel in Salt Lake where we spent our wedding night. It was so much fun. We went swimming, ate a nice dinner, and even got room service. I got Eli a soccer ball and he wrote me a poem and sang me some songs. It was a great anniversary. I can't believe we've been married a year. It went by really quickly and it seems like we've been married for a lot longer than that.
For Eli's birthday we had an awesome Nacho Libre party. We dressed like wrestlers, nuns, or orphans, ate a lot of food, had a wrestling contest, and watched the movie outside. It was a lot of fun.
I graduated on Friday. It was really nice, short too. My mom and dad came out for it. We had a really good time with everyone. On Friday night we had a nice barbeque with all the family that was in the area at Eli's parents house. It was a lot of fun. Now, I'm just looking for a job. Eli's working and getting ready for school to start. It's kind of strange to have a fall without starting school. But, nice.
Here are our pictures:
