Friday the 5th of November

My happiness from Thursday continued through the weekend. Friday was the 6th year anniversary of when Ryan and I went on our first date. I will never forget how nervous I was before he came and picked me up. Overall, the first date went great. The only 2 things I still remember being bad was our movie choice and Ryan's driving. We decided to go see Grudge and it was a terrible movie. We ended up talking through much of the movie and talked about leaving it early even though we never did. Ryan's driving --- he was driving so fast en route to the movie (i'm sure to impress me) & I was slightly scared for my life. I now feel much more comfortable telling him to slow down in car rides when he gets his heavy foot.

Friday we thought we would go see another scary/weird movie. He talked me into seeing Saw 3D and what a terrible choice. I was so grossed out after 10 minutes, I had to leave the theater. Ryan followed me and we left. I still can't believe people actually want to see movies like was disturbing. To celebrate our 6 year mark, I decided to find a picture from each of the 6 years to see how we have changed.

Thursday was a good day for me...maybe I should say great!

More importantly I found out I got the JOB I wanted! Since moving to Arizona, breaking into the pharmaceutical industry was a goal of mine. I knew it was a hard and sometimes impossible industry to get started in. So it was a goal that I really didn't talk about a lot because I wasn't sure it was feasible for me. Let's just say I have reached that goal and will start my new position Dec 1st! I will be working for a third party company and will be promoting three Astrazeneca drugs. I am super excited!

Thursday night, I had a Junior League meeting and then when I got home Ryan wasn't here. I was confused and could tell he had been home earlier. I called him and he acted all funny on the phone. A few minutes later he came through the door with a pink rose, card, Safeway cheesecake and some Andre champagne to celebrate my new job (can you tell we celebrate on a budget). Sumo was convinced the rose was for him and pouted once he finally figured out Ryan didn't bring him back anything. I am so blessed to have an amazing husband (& spoiled dog who thinks everything is for him).
