After a little over three years at Ernst & Young, I officially put in my two weeks notice today. After Jason and I weighed all the pros and cons, I decided to accept a senior financial analyst position at RRI Energy in their financial reporting group. I write this post with mixed emotions. I am super excited about this new opportunity and new chapter in my life but am also sad to leave Ernst & Young. I have been blessed over the last three years to work with incredibly wonderful people that made my job enjoyable (even during the crazy busy-season times when we were working insane hours). I feel like I have learned so much, gained many life experiences, and honed skills that will continue to help me throughout my career. I know that I will continue to learn and grow in this new position at RRI and am looking forward to the new challenges that are ahead. Please pray that I make a smooth transition (as I am not always the best with change). My first day is November 9th. I will keep you posted on how it goes.
Our good family friends, the Crabtrees, hosted their 2nd annual birthday bash last weekend. My parents, Cody and Britt, and Jason and I all met in Weimer on Saturday night to enjoy the festivities. The weather actually felt like fall, and we had such a great time eating, drinking, dancing, and just catching up. The Crabtrees definitely know how to throw a fun party. We had dinner complete with fried ribs (which I am sure were calorie free) and BBQ. We then enjoyed dancing to music by Steve Wariner and his band. All in all it was a fantastic weekend!.

Brittany and I had to take a pic with Steve Wariner. He stopped singing in the middle of his song to pose for this pic saying he wasn't going to miss that opportunity. HAHA
