above is the sweet view from my new office. last week we moved some people around at work and i ended up in a roomy new space, all to myself [prior to this, i'd been working from a bigger office that i shared with a co worker]. amusing downside to the new office: it's techically a hallway, because it has two doors -- one of which leads to our product room, so i have people walking through often. upside: i now overlook the gas station next door, the 15 freeway and gorgeous mt. timpanogos. not a bad setup.
got some unfortunate news last week...due to the pending summer move and this whole baby thing, i gotta quit my job when we go to colorado. boo for non-steady paychecks. i'll be launching a little freelance PR career here in a bit [which i'm actually pretty excited about], so feel free to fling leads my way.
b, on the other hand, is rockin it in the mba world. some of his schoolmates are still trying to nail down internships for the summer, while we've had this taken care of since before christmas. we have been so blessed not only with a great summer job for him BUT one that is ever-so-accomodating -- they've been sending him little welcome gifts and answering all my momma-to-be questions, and we learned last week that they'll be putting us up in uber comfy digs for the summer. i was nervous we'd have to bring baby dub home to a dump, but it looks like it will be quite the opposite.
also, he was chosen to be executive vice pres of the marketing association in his program for next year. i'm not really sure what that means just yet, but i know from personal experience he is the world's best VP.
[in college, i was the president of byu's chapter of the public relations student society of america -- i actually met b when he was elected as one of my VPs. the first thing i ever learned about him was when our council got together for introductions and each had to share our favorite quote. he used a line from a killers song and i thought he was a weirdo. luckily our relationship improved from there.]
annnnd he got a job as a TA for an undergrad marketing class for next year. i'm so glad someone will be bringing home the bacon in one form or another, since apparently i suck at maintaining my role as sole breadwinner. this baby better be worth it.
