First day of work today!

Today is my first day at the new university job. There's a bunch of new employees starting at the same time, like five or six of us. I'm excited to make new friends, and also a little nervous. I jokingly told my family I'm convinced it's going to be like the scene from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, with all the cool kids at one table and me by myself at the other.

^^See 3:05 to 3:35 for a visual.

So now they keep making fun of me and telling me I'll be fine as long as I don't bring moussaka for lunch. On the plus side, my mom made me lunch for tomorrow. It's like grade school all over again!

I can't get over how lucky we've been that Frank and I both have jobs already. As crazy as it is to be starting a new job just three and a half weeks before my wedding, I'm so grateful I found work so quickly and didn't have to take time off. Now I just need to put my game face on and impress my new office. :)

Wish me luck!


  1. Aww you've totally got this! They're gonna love you. But hey- don't rip on moussaka. That stuff's delicious! ;) Praying that God works in you and through you as you settle into your "new" life.

  2. GOOD LUCK!!! You will do great, even if you aren't cool. (Don't worry, I am a serial inhabit-er of the uncool table, it's not so bad ;))

  3. So exciting! Sending three Aves your way for a great day!

  4. Good luck, y'all!! And there's nothin' wrong with Moussaka... ;) Some people just don't understand it.
