Today was Jakes first day of work at KPMG! I dont think he is quite as excited about working as I am, but he will get used to it....or at least he better. :) He has been in school for so long that I think it scares him a little bit to know that he will be working for the rest of his life without a summer break. It is so nice to be able to come home and have him be there to hang out with though. Instead of only seeing him for about 40 minutes at lunch and maybe an hour or two when he would get back from class, I get to see him in the morning when we are getting ready for work, and for 4+ hours when we both get back. It's awesome. The only thing that is going to be less than awesome is that his student loans are going to come due soon...and then we will have loans equivalent to the cost of a Large house in Kansas. haha But it is well worth it. Jake is awesome at what he does, and he is going to help out so many people with his abilities. Maybe i should drop out of work for awhile so he can be the sugar daddy. :) hahahahaha
Last week I took the big step and cut off my hair. I went to the wonderful and talented MaryLynn, and she did an amazing job. I cut off 10 inches to donate it to Locks of Love. It is so nice to have a fun summer haircut. What do you guys think? Don't worry, it grows back if you don't like it. :)
Today is the happiest day of our lives! JAKE HAS OFFICALLY FINISHED SCHOOL! After 23 long years of schooling, he will finally be entering the work force with the rest of us normal people. :) Jake has taken a job with KPMG in Denver and will be working in the tax group doing corporate tax returns. After his last week of finals I could hardly recognize him as he neglected to use a razor for the same period.........can you say Grizzly Adams? Actually, he prefers Jeremiah Johnson instead. I had no idea who that was, but after a brief explanation from Jake I have come to learn that Jeremiah Johnson is the title and also the name of the main character in a Robert Redford film where Robert Redford portrays a man who leaves the civilized world to become a mountain man. Jake only wishes that was him. Now its on to studying for the CPA exam, cleaning our cars (the cars haven't seen a car wash in quite some time), and getting Jake to finish my Honey-Do List. In the mean time we will enjoy spending more time together in the evenings and will actually be able to enjoy eating dinner together at a decent hour......say 6pm instead of 9 or 10pm. I will be glad to have him back now that, as he says, "He is a free man!"
Well, here goes nothing. Since a lot of my friends from the Bible Park ward have or are moving away, I thought this could be a really good way of keeping in touch with them, and with the rest of my friends and family that are all over the U.S. I hope I can make mine half as cute as all of yours!
Hey Guys! A little bit about Jake and I...We have now lived in Denver for the past 2 years and are finding that we are really enjoying it. We have been married for a little over two years and are still crazy in love. :) Jake is still working at KPMG and is doing really well there. I am still working at a law office which I still really enjoy. We are both always looking for a good time...so let us know when you want us to come over. :)
