Randomness

Several random things from today...completely unrelated, but most of them excited me nonetheless:

1. WeAreTeachers launched our marketplace in Facebook!!!  You can check it out here: I Am Teacher Marketplace.  This is HUGE...many, many hours of work (still many more to come), but a very important milestone for our little company.  It's so exciting to watch it take off and grow! (If you have a Fb account, search for 'I Am Teacher' in the applications and add it to your profile...pretty cool.)

2. On a more personal note...our family received some VERY EXCITING news today as well...  My brother-in-law, Joe, found out this morning that he has been accepted to Columbia for their MBA program.  We are so proud of you, Joe! (And very excited to come visit New York City...)  He and his wife, Candice, will be moving to NY in January...in the mean time we love that they are here in the metroplex after four long years in the San Diego area.  We all went out for a celebratory dinner tonight and had a wonderful time... here they are...



3. Have I mentioned that I freakin' love our church (Keystone Church)???  After dinner with the fam, I headed over to Simply You (owned by our good friend, Melody) to meet up with some of the women for a ministry event.  What an incredibly refreshing night to catch up with old friends and meet new ones as well.  I've been so busy with every day life that I really haven't taken time out to just stop, breathe, and take it all in.  Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to do that - you ladies minister to me every day and I am so thankful you are in my life.  And a HUGE shout out to Tracy for all of her hard work and organization...thank you!  (A side plug... if you live in the area and haven't been by Simply You... ya need to try it... yummm!)

4. This next item does not excite me due to obvious reasons...  I was saddened today to see that the little town Ben and I lived in outside of Minneapolis made the news because of a plane crash.  My heart goes out to that community...we miss our friends from Owatonna every day!

5.  And finally... My sister got she and I tickets to the John Mayer/ Colbie Caillat concert tomorrow night.  I know, I know...I said I was a music snob...go ahead and throw stones at me for going to this concert.  But, I am excited...very excited!  Not so much because of the music, but because it will be a fun night with my little sister (and one of our "surrogate" sisters, Blaire Bender).  And, because I am secretly hoping to see/meet Jennifer Aniston.  This may sound weird, but I know that she and I would be BFFs if we ever had the chance to meet...

So that's all for tonight...heading to bed to catch up on sleep.  But before I do, I just have to point out the obvious...I'm a list maker.  My apologies go out to all those that are annoyed by this, but it will continue.
