OH-IO (Columbus to be exact)


No joke, it's the honest to goodness truth. After a very unique job search (including a Purdue career fair, a Harvard career fair, 28 portfolios, 10 sets of business cards/work samples, too much money in postage, two trips to Columbus, and countless prayers) Casey accepted a job with MSI in COLUMBUS OHIO (yes i'm screaming)!!! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. 3 1/2 hours from my parents 4 hours from my sister, does it get any better than that (if only we could get some Elmers out this way)? Casey has maintained control, but I think he's pretty darn happy also. I'm so proud of Casey, it's been a pretty long journey and he has excelled every step of the way. I couldn't ask for a better husband and father and even though I'd love him to just stay home with us every second of every day I think he'll start the new job next week. So wish us luck...

I know you must be so relieved! With this crazy economy having a job is SUCH a huge blessing. I can understand why you are excited that you will be so close to family. Now YOUR job starts: finding the perfect ward, perfect home, and great school. Congratulations and happy hunting!

We are so proud and happy for all of you and only a little sad that you are not closer...Casey couldn't have done what he has done without you Amanda so give yourself a big Hi 5!! We love you and are excited for this new phase of your life!

My SIL is moving there too. I know a couple other people from Kent's MBA program who are living there or will be moving there shortly. It seems like a great place to live! Congrats to Casey for finishing up school! And congrats on your new baby! Did that itching go away yet? It did for me after about a month, but then a couple weeks ago it came back! It's not as bad, but I still itch some! Ugh!
