Birthday Presents

I've always had really great birthdays. My first date was on my 14th birthday. With an October birthday, I usually get to celebrate on Columbus day or sometimes the same day as homecoming. I usually get great weather, and I was always in school so I get lots of "happy birthdays" sung to me. Two years ago Kevin got me 2 seasons of The Office, and one of my favorite snacks. It was then that I suspected he liked me more than a little. I still remember that crazy night my freshman year when we celebrated my birthday; I borrowed Keriann's coat that I'm pretty sure she ended up returning. We went bowling and we went to the dollar theater and I think we played sardines at like 2 a.m. @ Deseret Towers...

Anyway, today has been no different. I had an interview scheduled with a local store that caters to soon-to-be missionaries (men and women). i still really wanted the position with Down East, but felt I should go on the interview since I hadn't heard for sure. The interview went okay considering I had to wait 30 minutes for the interview to start and I could tell the guy wasn't the best interviewer in the world. I left the interview, checked my voice mail and called Down East back to find out that I got the job as the kiosk manager!

I could not be happier. This is something I really wanted and it felt really right. The timing is even perfect. After the good news, Kevin took me out to lunch and to Costco to buy me one of my birthday presents. And next week I get to spend a week with my family! I am seriously the luckiest girl in the world and can't believe how much my Heavenly Father has blessed me. Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes during the past couple of months that I've been looking for a job. Couldn't have done it without you!

Wishin' and Hopin'

I know that Down East talked to at least one of my references. I finally inquired today after not hearing back for almost a week; sounds like I should hear back either way by tomorrow. Hopefully it will be a good birthday present this year!

My sweet Kevin finally asked for some time off for my birthday. He didn't even ask off for his own birthday. I'm still deciding where to go when he takes me out for my birthday lunch. Any suggestions? I'm thinking the Spaghetti Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, or Chili's... But maybe if I get the job we'll head up to SLC for some Texas Roadhouse or even Cheesecake Factory to celebrate!

I totally cannot concentrate right now because I am so anxious to hear back. If it isn't good news, it will definitely be ok. I have an interview with another company scheduled for tomorrow, but I really hope I get this position with Down East. Here's hoping!

Second interview

Today I had a second interview over the phone with Down East Basics. I think it went well considering I didn't know I was going to have one until I got the call. I really really hope I get the job, but if not, I know I'll be okay.
