Headed to David's Bridal tonight to try get measured for my bridesmaids dress for Janet's wedding in August.  I'm super excited for her wedding and love that i get to be a part of her big day! Janet was also a bridesmaids in my wedding last July.  We have been friends for a very long time, we went to middle and high school together but we didn't actually start hanging out until after we graduated.  I'm so happy for her  and she's marrying a wonderful man.

Breakfast with friends

Jon and I met up with Chris & Ainara for breakfast this morning.  Then we spent the rest of our day relaxing at home and looking for home in San Jose.  I know we still have sometime before we move, but its nice looking at whats available and in our price range.  I'm super excited for this next chapter in our lives!
Just look at that sweet little face!

Raspberry Beer Cocktails

Today I decided to try out a yummy pinterest drink recipe .  Raspberry Beer Cocktails
What you'll need:
1 cup of fresh raspberries or frozen
4 bottles of corona (12oz) beer, chilled
1 container frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate, thawed or pink lemonade
1/2 cup good quality vodka
Mix it all together in a pitcher
This is what it looked like once it was all mixed together
The drink turned out great. You can only have a a drink or two of these because its a pretty sweet drink.  But its delicious! This is perfect for a nice sunny day.
Jon and I had a fun evening with Chris & Ainara.  We drove out to Bothell and checked out their new house, which they move into next month.  Afterwards we went to Outback for happy hour.  They have a pretty good happy hour dinner and drinks menu.  Then we hung out at home for a bit and then hit up Tony's and the casino down the street.

Life Changes!!!!

I have some pretty exciting news! Jon was offered a position within his company in San Jose California and he accepted the offer today! I am SO excited to finally be moving to California! This is what we have been working so hard for, and has been our goal all along.  I was so excited when Jon told me about it last night, but I was told that i couldn't say anything until he officially accepted the offer.  So the details are still up in the air regarding the move, all we know at the moment is that we will be moving sometime in September or October.  I wish we could move now! lol.  I'm so proud of Jon and all of his hard work, he's making our dreams come true.  If we like San Jose, we can finally buy a house and settle down and have babies! It's funny how life works, Wednesday i was disappointed with the children's hospital and everything that happened with them, and then Thursday night, life got 100x's better after hearing these news.  Everything definitely happens for a reason, and now i am so thankful that the children's hospital didn't work out. 
I am so excited to finally leave the cold & rainy northwest and head into a sunny state, where the sun shines MUCH more often!
Jon's new office will be near the San Jose Int. Airport.  And we are about an hour and half away from San Francisco and 5 hours away from Disneyland! Life is just getting better and better!

Happy Hour

Ainara and I met for happy hour today.  We started off at "Milagro", a Mexican restaurant in downtown Kirkland.  This place kind of reminded me of "Matador".  I really liked it and will definitely check it out again for dinner.  After that, we headed to "Beaches" to meet up with the boys for some more happy hour and dinner.  Everything on their happy hour menu looked good.  I went with a cranberry margarita and some steak bites. 
These were pretty yummy!
We ended our night with a stop at "Red Hook"  I love having evening like these with friends.  A pre-celebration night out before the weekend begins!
Ainara and I both got the sampler.

What happened????!!!!

So..... you know how I was REALLY excited yesterday about my interview Thursday morning?  How i got everything taken care and my references checked out and completed what they needed for me?  Well guess what kind of email i got this morning?! I got this:

I was COMPLETELY shocked when i got this email.  Like what happened from yesterday to today?! I just feel pretty crushed right now, i really wanted this job and was so excited to interview and move forward in my career, but now I'm back to square one.  I was talking to Gay, who was my boss at OHSU, about this today and she said that this could be a blessing in disguise, which she is right, there has to be a good reason why this just didn't happen for me.  I need to stay positive and move forward.  Its just so hard sometimes, because my current job is SO boring and it makes me depressed sometimes and makes me miss my old job.  
I loved my job at OHSU, it was stressful but it was a job that i was proud of and it was a career that i had a future in.  I had so many opportunities to grow and to advance at that job, and with this one, i just feel so stuck.  I know that we are not going to live in Washington forever and i should just stick it out until we move but i also just want a job that makes me happy and keeps me busy.  
But I do have something to look forward to at work.  We are having a department retreat  next month with the department chair, my supervisor and the volunteer coordinator, and part of this retreat, we are going to reevaluate my job duties because they know that i am bored out of my mind and know that i am capable of doing much more in my position.  So hopefully things get better for me at my current job.

So overall, I'm pretty sad that my interview for tomorrow has been canceled, I'm going to keep looking for a new job, BUT i am hopeful with my current position that it'll get better.  

Ill leave you with a picture that makes me happy of my love and I.  I love Jon and how supportive he is with all of this. All he wants is for his wife to be happy and him telling me this makes me feel a little better and look into the future with a smile on my face.   Because I am happy, I'm just a crazy person that wants a job that keeps me busy, instead of spending my entire day playing online, lol.

What a day!!

I got GREAT news this morning! I received THIS email from Seattle Children's Hospital:

  This totally made my day.  I was really starting to lose hope, and was feeling defeated.  But after this email, it completely restored my faith, as I've said before, i REALLY want this job.  So today all of my references were contacted, and i have my interview on Thursday morning.  Im really excited but of course a little nervous too.  My interview will be from 7:30 - 9:30, and ill be meeting with 3 Neurology doctors and the administrative team, so its going to be a busy morning.  Hopefully they like me and I get a job offer by the end of the week.  So please keep me your thoughts on Thursday morning.

Miley is VERY excited for mommy too! Look at her little tongue!
Jon and I were relaxing on the couch when he got home from work, and were watching planet earth and Miley was totally into the show too.  It was really cute!

Relaxing day!

We all went out to Brown Bag for breakfast this morning , they have the best breakfast in town, and they are always REALLY busy with a long wait, but since we had a late start to our day, we only had to wait 10 mins, thank goodness!
We all ended up getting the same thing.  I don't remember what its call,but it was really good, like breakfast nachos!  Jon and I will definitely get this again.
After breakfast, the boys went to play golf and Heather & I enjoyed some girl time.  We went and got pedicures, and then headed to downtown Kirkland to enjoy the sunshine and people watch,
We sat by the water for a while
After sitting by the water, we went and got drinks at "Vista Lago"  We sat outside and enjoyed the sun and our drinks.
I got a margarita, Heather enjoyed a mojito.
We spent the rest of the evening at home, everyone came over to hang out and we had pizza for dinner, along with some really good baked brie that Heather made for everyone. 
The brie with honey before it went into the oven.  I forgot to get a picutre of it once it was ready, i was too busy enjoying it!

Sushi & friends

Got home from work today and got our spare bedroom ready for our weekend guest.  As you can see, this is Jon's "man cave" and he's a huge Oregon Ducks fan!
Once Jon got off work, we went out to sushi with Chris and Ainara. I don't eat sushi but i enjoyed my edamame and beer.

After dinner, we headed home and waited for Heather & Ivan's arrival. They got to our place around 10, and they arrived with a present for us. Which the boys soon opened and enjoyed.

We hung out at our place for a little while, then we headed out to show Ivan & Heather the casino down the street from us. It was a fun night

Ainara, Chris, Jon, Ivan & Heather
