We are here!

Well, we made it to Omaha last Wednesday thanks to a lot of help from both of our parents packing up our truck and Bert driving with us to our new home. I was SOOO worried that Omaha was going to be flat, flat, FLAT! However, it isn't! There are no mountains, of course, but more trees than I have ever seen in my entire life! From every hilltop all you can see is trees with a few skyscrapers mixed in. Omaha is a HUGE city, but I think that we are going to adjust quickly. Every time we speak with someone new they tell us how good the food is here, and we LOVE to eat out, so I can't wait to experience it. Last night we ate at an italian restraunt called Lo Sole Mio...to die for. Every bit was throughouly delicious!
I LOVE our home. I think I have told Cody about 5 times each day how much I love it. It is just perfect for us. I know that so many of you want to see pictures, and they are coming, I promise! I just didn't think that you would want pictures of boxes in every room...it just has a different effect when we have made it our own! We are getting close to being done. The first day I set up my kitchen, of course! I have so much storage space and, because of my amazing sister, a perfect amount of counter space. She gave me a kitchen island and I seriously don't know what I would do without it! Thanks Manda! We have almost finished our living room, but our bedrooms and basement still have lots of work to be done. I can't believe how many closets we have. I have already found myself trying to spread things out on the shelves to make them look more full! I am sure that in a year or two I will be complaining about the lack of space, but right now it is overwhelming!
Something really exciting happened to me the day after we got to Omaha, I got a job! I have been going through the interviewing process over the phone for a couple of weeks, and I met the Dr.'s on Thursday and worked on Friday! I am going to be an Oral Surgery assistant, and I know that I will love it. One of the Dr.'s does facial plastic surgery like botox, nose reconstructions, brow and cheek lifts, etc., as well as regular tooth extractions, jaw surgeries, and more. I am so excited to learn more about this field of work. The Dr.'s are both really nice and both love golf, so Cody will have to go out with them! I really like the girls that I work with as well and know I can learn alot from all of them.
Anyway, just wanted to fill you in that we are here safe and sound AND loving it! Pictures are coming, I promise!

That is so exciting. That should keep you busy and you will still be able to photography in the evenings. Thanks again for the pictures, I'm having fun with them as they are so us. It was great to get back into touch with you. Take care of yourself.

wow - congrats on the new job! That's awesome.... although if you looks dramatically different next time I see you, I'm going to suspect you went under the knife too...
:)
So it sounds like you'll keep yourself busy while the hub will undoubtedly be busy. Besides working with the doctors, you have your photog, doing hair, taking care of your new spacious abode, and maybe you could do some nonprofit fundraising...
