The "Show" must go on.... finding my Rainbow!

As you may have read in the previous post that were having "car issues" well, the car with "issues" is gone & that left us down to one car.
One very small car. 
We were sad but the "Show" must go on! 

We both decided (& after having a talk with my dad-- Thanks dad!) that we should Save up our money & buy a van in cash -- opposed to making payments.  Even though the payments wouldn't be that much - it's just the fact that we wouldn't "own" it. 

So I found myself a little job -- completely Surprised me!

I felt like I needed to type up a resume one day after looking at job listings on Craig's list. I thought to myself.... what are the odds of me -- a Stay @ home mom of 10yrs getting a job when their are hundreds of people looking for jobs that have been in the work field longer & have the "education" backing. 
I typed it up anyways.  (I always go with my "feelings") aka prompting.

When I was finished I thought it looked Fabulous!

I would Totally hire me after reading it!!

How I typed it & how it flowed.... it all just came to me.  Tom liked it too.
So I sent it off (before Spell Checking it) to like 2 companies before I realized I forgot to do that!!! oopsie! so much for being "Detail Oriented!"

The 3rd one I sent was "fixed" & I got a phone call the following Monday.
(E-mailed it out on Thurs. or Fri.)

When she called me I thought it was someone from our new ward.... because her personal name showed up on the caller Id. -- so kids were being kids in the background --- LOUD! 
I scheduled the interview for that afternoon. 

I walked in & sat down & saw this huge stack of resumes on her desk!
I kept my cool. -- feeling pretty relaxed. I found out that she & I have a lot in common... including our religious beliefs.
After like 40 mins. of visiting I thought to myself...
gosh I wonder when the next interview is coming.
She flat out said: "Well, I think you're perfect for the job! When can you start?!"
I was blown away! --- I asked her if she had any other interviews to do & she said "nope" -- just you!
She said she had her ad on Craig's list for 6 hrs. & received 65 resumes!!!!
I was on the TOP!!

You can't tell me that the Lord's hand was not in this! -- Seriously!
So I'm working part time (4-6hrs/day) sometimes at home & or in the office!
The office is like 8-10mins. away & she is flexible with Tom's school schedule so we don't have to pay for child care!


I'm still doing noVae Clothing -- It is our "Thing" & it will always be our Thing!
Anyway we can help bring "modesty" back into society & to help women feel good about who they are, that is what we are going to continue to do!  

Everything seems to be falling into place...
Just when a few weeks ago it felt like it was Raining on us... then Pouring!
I'm so HAPPY we found our Rainbow!

Hope you are enjoying your Summer!!
Make sure you become a fb Friend...
we are getting ready to let you help us with our Fall line!!
You are going to LOVE it!!!

- notice their hands are in their pockets!!!{lol}

This is my "hubby" (above) -He's literally my other half! 
Isn't it funny how kids are when you try & take a
"Good" Picture?! or just any picture for that matter... 
{our cell phones don't do a Superlicous job but it'll have to do.} 

My Handsome BOYS!

My SweeT Daughter!
Everybody has to have at Least ONE Girl,
We just "chopped" her hair off a few weeks ago... this is the
shortest it's EVER been!

WE RULE the HOUSE! ;o)

Tom has already started one of his 2 classes he's taking this Summer
& I think he likes it so far... it's just Math. He's SO good at Math!

I, on the other hand, am not!
I Love the calculator & Prefer to use "other" sources/software to do 
the dirty work. 

I LOVE this New - Older home we are in! 
I LOVE the location. 
It take me Mins. to get where I need to go... 
Church - 5 mins
Post office - 'bout 7 mins
Grocery Store - 'bout 7 mins
BSU - 5 mins
                         Target - 'bout 15  (interstate -- so I can drive FAST!)

I plan on Enjoying the rest of the Summer with the kids playing in the Water
aka: Sprinkler under the Trampoline. - my kids think it's SO Cool! 
{do you remember doing that as a kid?!}

Have a Wonderful Summer
& I plan on posting more frequently now that my life has
Slowed down a little ....
