Old News

I don't really have any new-news, but I just realized that I never officially blogged about our new job! So, I'll do a little post here just because this is our family journal and important things like new jobs- or rather FIRST REAL jobs should be noted.

As many of you know, Jarom applied to over 20 fellowships across the country, (fellowships are sort of like what a residency is for a doctor) they are highly competitive  and was taken onsite to a lot of them, and offered three positions at three different health systems (yeah, I'm bragging cuz' he's a pretty slick guy). Long story short we took an offer from St. Elizabeth's Physicians in Crestview Hills Kentucky. So, June 17th we will be bidding New York adieu. We are both really excited for this new change, it will be so great to finally have a stable income- so that we can start saving for that sweet vacation- or first home ha ha. I'm so proud of my little Jarom, he is so fantastic, we've had a lot of road blocks in our 5 years together and I have to say he's the rock(et) that keeps us together and moving forward. I love that man.

Anyway, hopefully after a few months of Kentucky living, it will be appropriate for me to start saying "y'all" and adopting that country/southern/hick accent I hear they showcase out there.

My "rustic" wreath

Right now

Lets see, right now I am sitting at the computer, looking for housing, watching Fae make a mess of Jarom's papers, and listening to the Nora Jones station on Pandora. But, aside from what I am physically doing, mentally I am in turmoil! I honestly can't believe how fast our time in NY has gone by, and how little I feel like we've been able to do (traveling and vacationing wise). We are moving in about 2 months, and there is still so much we have to accomplish- one of the most important being finding a place to live without being able to see them in person. I've never done this before and I'm pretty sure its kicking my butt. Anyway, I am confident that we will find something, and that we will successfully be able to call it (as well as make) it our home. 

In other news, I cut all my hair off! Jarom thinks I am rebelling, haha, but in reality I nearly shaved my hair off three weeks ago! I get so annoyed with it! I've just never had very pretty hair, and its so fine that holding any sort of style besides "up", is a huge task. So, because my dear friend Aaron gave me a gift certificate to Jean Paul Spa, I was able to get a fantastic, crazy cool, master haircut! I had such a fun time watching all my hair be cut off and fall limply, rather hideously to the ground. It was quite refreshing, and I absolutely LOVE the way it came out. Jarom has been telling me how sexy I look since I came home with my "new do" on Thursday- I have even been getting extra kisses and compliments so that's reassuring.

So Far I don't have any really good pictures of it when I wear it "down and pretty" but here is one of Fae and I and one of me by myself (self portraits are always the worst haha)
- I like to Faux Hawk it most of the time :) 

Anyway, I also got rid of my facebook for a while- strangely enough, it was before listening to conference today which seemed to dwell a lot on the use of technology- so I'll try to update on here more often!
