Yay! Big News!

No, we are not having a baby lol.
But one step closer (the financial-savings step)

I got the job!!!!!!
My business just grew :) Beginning in January, Emerald City Dance will be not only partnering with the Issaquah Community Center, but also with Sammamish Children's School. I will be teaching a 3-5 year olds Creative Movement Dance Class on Tuesdays before my classes in Issaquah. 

They handle billing and will be paying me. It's a lot and we're pretending we don't have it....

We are so excited about this. I have been dreaming of the day we would have money in our savings account since we moved here and now it is going to happen. (It is super close to happening with what we have now) So this is just a cherry on top! A BIG cherry. I want nothing more than for us to be out of debt so we can work towards saving for a down payment on a house. Living in Issaquah, our down payment will have to be pretty large and has always seemed like something impossible...not anymore!! 

I prayed for this. God heard me. I love God. 
So theres that. I'm super excited!

*Side Story*
Yesterday I had an awful yucky day. The only time I managed a smile was while I was teaching because, well, it's impossible to NOT smile when I'm with them. It was a dreary day, super Seattle-y. 
Today was really nice out, super not-seattle-y. 

Anyways, I read my email. Ran and basically tackled Matt in excitement about the news giving him a jump hug lol, and what does he say, "Man, why couldn't today have been a dreary day!"
I immediately was caught off guard and hurt. I ran off and burst in tears 
(this is not uncommon around here). 
I thought Matt meant he wished it was dreary because I got overly excited and he was annoyed.
NO...(I really need to remember that not everyone thinks I'm annoying).
He meant he wishes today was the dreary day instead of yesterday so that I would have had a reason to be happier yesterday instead of today when I already had a fabulous day.
Man...I need to chill OUT sometimes.
And...I have the best husband in the world.  

Good news day!! We are so happy and I can't wait to start teaching some more little ones : )

Sorry I've been MIA, I was feeling like I was beginning to write some boring blogs. 

Tonight we're going to be picking out Matt's classes for this next quarter. We saved enough that he can take 3...full time! Yay! I'm so excited for him :) 

Ok, time to go finish my Water for Elephants on my Kindle before the library takes it away :( 

I hope everyone enjoyed this wonderful day as much as we did!
(OH...Almost forgot!!--we bought Kinect Disneyland today and have been playing non stop. It's as close as we're going to get to Disneyland until August and it actually may work in holding us over...SO awesome!)
