Verona, Wisconsin!

Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't updated this blog for a very, very long time! And thanks for reminding me to update Paula! I really do need the reminders. Sometimes I just get sidetracked with everything else I don't just sit down and tell people what is new with Greg and me.

Well, my last post I announced that Greg and I got married and we've been married for a little over 6 months now! I can't believe it! Being married to my best friend has been amazing and the time just flies! From a couple days after we got married to Oct 18 we were living with my In-laws, Bob and Diane. Neither Greg nor I could get a job before we graduated/got married and had to live somewhere and Greg's parents were so generous to let us live there until we got a job. THANK YOU BOB AND DIANE! It was pretty difficult looking for work. We both applied to so many different jobs and not getting response from almost any of them was hard.

But then one fine day in September Greg got an email from Epic (here in Verona, WI) saying that they wanted to interview Greg over the phone. Later that week, Greg had his interview and the NEXT DAY he got an email expressing interest in an on-site interview! We were both so so excited but still didn't want to keep our hopes up just in case it didn't work out. But apparently it worked out!

So now we are here in Verona, WI which is right next to Madison the capitol of Wisconsin. So far we like it here. People here are friendly and our ward is really nice. Apparently, 1/3 of the ward works for Epic! We have a very nice apartment that has a washer/dryer in the apartment! And every building has an elevator! Greg is currently on his 4th day of work and so far he likes it! Hopefully he still will like it when all the training is done and he really gets into his position at Epic. (If you would like to find out what Epic does I'd recommend going to their website

As for me, I'm still looking for work everyday but for now I'm kind of enjoying being at home. I've been making dinner the past few nights, and I feel like a more accomplished cook than I ever did during college! This is probably because Greg and I actually planned our meals for this week and next week. I never did that during college. On my Facebook page I posted pictures we took of our apartment before we really started moving in. Now we have a nice dining table and chairs we got from Walmart and we basically went on a shopping spree at Bed, Bath and Beyond! We received so many gift cards as wedding gifts! Last Friday we probably spent over 2 hours in that store, bought over $800 worth of stuff and STILL had hundreds of dollars in gift cards left! I thought that was pretty amazing!

Well, I think I'll post again tomorrow and post some new pictures of our apartment with a few more things in it!
