first post as an aunt.

It's been a busy week or so.

I'm officially an aunt to Harvey Joshua Shelley, born to Josh and Danielle Shelley on May 20, 2011! Yes, it was May 20 here and in China. :) He's healthy and precious. Can't really tell who he looks like...but with babies I can never tell anyway. We'll see. They're so pumped and we got to finally talk to them last night on Skype. Thank God for technology that allows us to see our loved ones across the world!

This is my favorite picture of Harvey so far. It cracks me up.
I wish I could just grab him through the computer. I'd give him back, but just you know for a few minutes. If you're wondering how he got his name, "Harvey" is our Grandaddy Shelley's first name (his great-grandaddy) and "Joshua" is his daddy's name! I've inadvertently been referring to him as "The Harve", but I don't know how his parents would feel about that, so maybe I should call him by his real name.

In other news, I graduated last weekend. Pretty sweet. I also got my first big-girl interview for a fill-in office manager/receptionist/whatever you want to call it job until I start babysitting for the summer. I was pretty nervous about this, because my only interviews up until that point had involved making up dances, acting crazy in front of people, being on camera, running the RBC Center stairs, taking hockey quizzes, and playing with kids. Probably not anything I'm going to run into for an interview again.

But I did get it, praise the Lord, and I trained and worked on Friday. It was actually fun working for a big software company. I did a pretty good job if I do say so. I like talking to people and helping people so that made it enjoyable. I did do a couple things wrong though, like transferring people to the wrong lines. Or struggling to understand people with British accents. I can't even understand people with British accents on TV, much less a phone. And one time when that happened it was in front of the CEO...oh well. He was nice and helped me. I already liked him before I met him because he has life-size Star Wars statues throughout the entire office. Young Anakin stood right in front of me in his pod racing gear all day. Love.

It was good because I'm trying to get some office experience. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to end up doing for a job. But the awesome thing is that God does know, and it's the best. I'm excited to see what He has in store. But for right now, I'm going to be exploring my options and asking around. 

Chris and Erica got married on Saturday! It was beautiful, they were so happy, and we had such a great time. Jordan and Katherine did an amazing job singing. :) I have such a talented husband. During one of songs he looked into my eyes for a solid 10 seconds, and I felt like a 13 year old groupie who was melting into the ground. Forget Bieber fever, I am hooked on Jordan.

 Well, I'm done for now. I'm about to go outside and try to convince my body that it is not, in fact, July - despite the 93 degree temps. Have a great Monday, my dear friends.
