Labor Day Weekend and New Beginnings

I can honestly say that this is by far the best weekend we've had in a long time. I'll start with Thursday.

As most of my family, facebook friends, and fellow small groupers know, I passed my RD exam on Thursday! After waiting three months to be eligible to take my exam (long story!) and then losing Oma right after that, I finally took my exam and passed (on the first time yay!). I'm just looking forward to this fall. God-willing I hope to find a job soon and be able to move on a bit in life. I'm just finally happy to be a Registered Dietitian!

Friday was a day of rest. I was so exhausted. I don't remember much from Friday, but I know I felt insanely tired.

Saturday Bo got this amazing deal on a planer. Home Depot (or DeWalt) was phasing out a particular model, in order to replace it with a cheaper one. Anyhow, I think he ended up saving 75%. He had to call around quite a bit to find one and eventually drove to Pflugerville, but I'm happy that he seeks out ways to save money especially for things that are considered to be good quality. Also, I got a rabbit! I haven't taken any pictures of him/her, but I will. I *think* it is a lionhead or lionhead mix. He's not as fluffy as some of the lionhead rabbits I've seen pictures of.

Saturday night we went to Driftwood Vineyards and enjoyed our friends' band Clay Roof Rising. We also had the opportunity to get to know more of the people in our church since we go to the same church as Annie and Adam. It was a great night, with a beautiful view of the vineyard, great wine, food, conversation, and of course, music!

Sunday we were bulletin greeters at church. I think Bo and I are getting better at it and I hope we'll eventually know who the new people are. We still feel kinda new, as we've only been going since April, and we sure haven't learned everyone's names. However, we feel incredibly blessed to be a part of Christ Church.

Today we slept in, although Bo would argue that he could have used a couple more hours :) We packed Brodie up and went to a local park for a cookout/picnic our church had. I was surprised at how many people came. Again, we had the opportunity to hang out, chat and get to know people better.

Tonight I plan on finishing up my resume and I'm curious to see what tomorrow brings with my job search. I'm so thankful for such a great weekend and I'm looking forward to the rest of the week!
