A Year In Review Continued

This is Robbie in interview prep mode. Poor kid. His interviews are so much harder than mine ever were! For me, it was all fit questions and behavorial stuff. For him, you ask? Tell me about a recent merger & acquisition you have been following. What is beta? What is the WACC? Walk me through how you would value the UTA Trax system. What is the effect of depreciation on all three financial statements? Ick. He literally has hundreds of pages of guides, practice questions, and suggested answers printed out. Not to mention all the flashcards he totes around for those extra moments of study - waiting for a haircut, sitting at a stoplight, riding Trax to class. That kid is such a hard worker, it will absolutely pay off. I think it was the Dean of the Business School who said that students should be spending 20 hours each week on preparation and job-finding, and Robbie has really taken that to heart.

And this is my Valentine's Day adventure! I think it turned out :)

A Year In Review

Can you believe it's been a year? Robbie started our blog off with a roar, and I clearly dropped the ball. I've been reminding myself to update our blog for 13 months now, yet somehow I still let 13 months pass... But nevermind how we got here, let's just give you the update.

Kenya! What an incredible trip. Honestly, "trip" is not the word, adventure is more like it. We spent six weeks in Taru Village having the time of our lives. I'll give you a few pictures for now, and hope to juice it up with some stories later. let's hope it doesn't take another 13 months.

Within just a few weeks of coming home, we bought a house! I never imagined I would own a house so young. That is something old married people do...but, I guess that just means we are old and married :) I have been slowly trying to decorate our place (it's not as easy as it looks!) A recent addition is my paper wreath experiment:

Next comes Jordan's wedding. And I just realized I don't have a picture with the Bride in it, haha, sorry Jess!
