okay ladies, I had a wonderul weekend and wanted to share it with all of you.
First: I GOT THE JOB! Thanks for all of your happy thoughts and prayers. It has been a hard road but God has blessed me with this.
Second: my family and FI's family got together last night. It was a smashing hit. Everyone got along great and had a wonderful time. It was great food, good conversation and great times. We are so happy about that.
Now we can officially announce our engagement to everyone. The cards have just been waiting until we had the families together, before we let the cat out of the bag to everyone else. We wanted to do it in a traditional way, and it worked out wonderfully.
Thanks everyone for all your words of kindness and great ideas and advice. Now on with the planning!
