After a loooooong month of job searching, I finally landed with one! They called me late last week to schedule an interview for Monday. Daniel and I both had a good feeling about this. After my interview, they scheduled me to come in for training that same week. It's a job involved in Marketing research and the hours are VERY flexible...I make my own schedule weekly. Which means we can plan our date nights, holiday trips home, ad family vacations without having to worry about the conflict with work. Overall, we feel a huge relief! Daniel is even more excited than I am because now he "thinks" he'll be getting all of his new snowboarding gear! lol... Some other great news, we have a new member in the family. My sister in-law, Laura (Daniel's sister) had her baby on Friday, October 9th. They named her Annelyse Krista Mammen. We can't wait to meet her over the holidays! Also, we have a new member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My niece, Erin Kay Horn Pascual was baptized and confirmed a member of the church on Saturday, October 10th. We were also able to celebrate her 8th birthday with her! What a great blessing it is to see the progress in our family and the love we all have for one another!

On September 5, 2009 we went to a BYU vs OU football game in Dallas. The day before, we had our open house at the Platt's and it was just beautiful! My mother inlaw Christa did an amazing job with the house with all the family members who came to help! It was my first time going to a BYU game and they won 14-13! OU was rated 3rd and BYU 20th. This game pushed them up to 7th! whoooohooo!
At the end of the Summer semester in July, I made my first trip down to Texas to meet my inlaws for the first time! Before that, I had already met my mother inlaw Christa, and sister inlaw Erin. After meeting them, I knew I hit the "jackpot"! Words also inspired by my brother inlaw Kyle...
This was Daniel's baby blanket. His mom (now my mother-inlaw) showed me a picture just like this one when he was a baby! I had to get this shot!
So, on this day, the family decided to take me to the lake. It was a beautiful, sunny, and HOT day. It was fun getting to know the family!
