I had the best surprise waiting for me when I got home from work today! Collin had gotten the mail and he was sitting at the table going through it when I came through the door. He (knowing that I was anxiously awaiting the day that this would come in the mail) put it behind his back and says, "Guess what came in the mail today?!" I got so excited when he pulled out a jury summons for KRISTIN DAY! Yay! I'm sure this sounds crazy to most people because hardly anyone in the world wants to get jury duty, but I did. I have only been picked one other time and I was in college and couldn't do it. This is the first time I've been picked since being in the "real world". And I get to go...April 15th. I am so excited. I think I'm going to google "How to get picked to be on a jury". If you have any tips on what to do or what not to do, I'm all ears! Collin thinks I'm crazy and if you're reading this you probably do too, but it's OK because I am happy :)

I am proud to announce that Collin has passed his Series 7 licensing exam and is now a FINRA member. That basically means that he can buy/sell securities, etc. If you're like me until recently and have no idea what the Series 7 is, here's what they say about the exam:
The Series 7 exam covers content such as corporate securities (stocks and bonds), municipal securities and U.S. government securities, options, direct participation programs, investment company products, variable contracts and federal securities laws.

Today, March 11th, is our 2 year anniversary. It's hard to believe that it's been 2 years since our wedding. Well, in some ways it's hard to believe. Sometimes I feel like the time has flown by and then other times I feel like we've been married for so much longer. I didn't think that when I said "I do" I could love Collin any more than I did that day. But I do. So much more. In so many ways. It's amazing how love grows. I am so blessed to have this amazing man to walk this life with me. I love you, Collin - Happy Two Years of Holy Matrimony! I am looking forward to a lifetime more of memories with you, my lover and very best friend.

My dad is doing LOADS better. He has been home from the hospital for a week and a half now. His white blood cell count was elevated really high while in the hospital, which apparantly meant that he had an infection somewhere in his body. They treated him with a variety of strong antibiotics and his white blood cell count went down, as did his blood sugar and his fever. They still don't know where the infection was but they were able to treat it anyway. He's still not feeling 100% but is slowly improving everyday. He still cannot see out of his left eye but saw his eye doctor last week, who says that it is normal and usually takes weeks/months for normal vision to return. I hope it returns sooner than later for his sake. Only being able to see out of one eye has to be driving him crazy! I was able to drive to Fort Worth and stay a few days with my parents. I really enjoyed getting to do some cooking for them and trying to help them out during the busy time. Thanks for all the prayers that were sent up on my dad's behalf. God answered them - He is so good!
I also got a long overdue haircut while at home. I had almost half a foot cut off and she tapered it in the front around my face. I LOVED it when she did it - the way she fixed it was adorable. It looked like my hair had just stepped out of a magazine. I was so excited. I kept walking past mirrors and catching glimpses of my short hair (it's not short to most people, but it's short to me) and being thrilled on the inside! Then I went to bed, got up the next morning and showered, and I couldn't do anything with it. I don't even own hair spray much less "paste" or anything else useful to fix this new 'do of mine. I should have made a trip to Ulta this weekend but I didn't. So, I've been wearing my cute new 'do in a ponytail. The short layers in the front fall out and I have to wear them behind my ears. But oh-well. One of these days I will get some hairspray and the "paste" that my mom graciously offered to buy from Nicholi (the lady who cuts our hair - no idea how to spell her name...she's british and has the coolest accent!) will come in the mail (we were going to buy some when she cut our hair and she was out) and I'll learn how to fix it. I wish that I wasn't a hair retard. I'll post a picture soon!
