My week in a nutshell..

No, this is me in a nutshell: "Help! I'm in a nutshell! How did I get into this bloody great big nutshell? What kind of shell has a nut like this?" ((austin powers)) ha!

*THURSDAY-Dan and I went to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate my new job.. he got the shepard's pie.. I got the chicken bow tie pasta w/ broccoli instead of peas and we got the ghirardelli brownie for dessert.. YUM!!

*FRIDAY- I started my new job, which went really well.. I totally love it!!..

* SATURDAY- Went to breakfast at this cute little place in Costa Mesa then.. Tom was in SO CAL working and stopped by for the day.. we took him to the beach and down to the pier and up main street.. had bar-b-q for lunch and Mo's and then he installed my car stereo ((which him and my mom got me for christmas and has been sitting in my closet..)) then we went to Fred's Mexican for dinner... SOOOOO good!!.. BEST Mexican salad ever!! YUM.. and it over looks the beach and ocean it's great!!

*SUNDAY- went to church and finished the blanket I started on thursday for Dan ((yup did it in THREE days.. don't even ask why I thought to attempt that.. but it all worked out and he loved it!!)) Dan brought me some beautiful orchids gave me some other sweet gifts and then we laid at the beach and then went to Outback -Fillet Mignon & Crab Legs.. DELISH!! and then a huge amazingly good cake ((we don't normally eat out this much i swear!!)) and then watched Love Happens.. good Valentine's Day movie

*MONDAY- worked again- Dan had the day off and made me a great Chicken Chow Mien dinner.. and watched the kite runner, I had just finished reading it so I did a lot of comparing but it was still really good

*TUESDAY- worked and then hung out with Dan.. watched figure skating for the Olympics and then received a Valentines massage it was FABULOUS!!. would have thought he was a professional if I didn't know any better

*TODAY- had the day off so I did some cleaning, walked to the beach with my roommate (AMANDA!) went to Jamba.. laid out for a few hours.. went shopping up main street and then later get to go watch Dan play in a basketball game...

EXCELLENT week if you ask me!! (I think we probably won't eat out again for a month or so tho haha)

Hope everyone else had wonderful week and an extra special Valentine's

*and the search is finally over!!..

My new job!!..
So after months of searching and some crazy boring temp jobs, and lots of stress.. I got a job!!.. It was definitely worth the wait!
I interviewed last Tuesday at Orange Coast Orthodontics/ Jungle of Smiles- Pediatric Dentistry and was invited back for a working interview on Wednesday afternoon. It went really well and loved the place.. It's decorated like a Jungle with monkeys and the big tree you see in the picture, paintings on the walls of zebras and tigers and elephants.. it's really cute. Also I really like everyone that worked there. It seems like such a great environment.. it's kind of in an upscale area of Orange County and they describe it as the 'Nordstoms' of dental offices ((meaning there are a lot of really rich patients)) :) I really really wanted the job and he emailed me Sunday saying I would hear from him on or before Wednesday.. Then I got home and had an email offering me the position!! I am sooo excited!!
I don't know a lot of information yet I should be talking to the Dr. tomorrow and hopefully meeting with him this week sometime to discuss the details!
The coolest thing about it is I worked really hard to get this job and it all totally paid off in the end!!
I can't wait to start and update on how it is actually working there but I am sure I will love it!!
