Celebrating Match’s New Job

Cop: Okay, so since umm, you’re not going to jail tonight I was wondering if you would like to go to dinner with me?
Phoebe: Me?!
Cop: Yeah. Ever since you flashed my badge at me, I kinda can’t stop thinking about you. You’re the prettiest, fake undercover whore I’ve ever seen.

So I know I still haven’t recapped Carmel but the exciting news of Match’s new job trumps that post. So yesterday morning I waited nervously to hear about Match’s final interview. I didn’t hear my phone ring and I was devastated that I couldn’t talk to him when he called. But hearing the message, “Sweetie, I was HIRED!!” was almost as good. I saved it and played it over and over again until he got to my office so I could hug him and hear about it. I was jumping up and down and couldn’t stop smiling.

After work I met Match up at his parent’s house for dinner to celebrate in style. We toasted with some tasty champagne and got to hear all the details about his final job interview with the sheriff’s department.

Oh and  I stand corrected. Apparently we’re to call him Deputy once he’s out of the academy, not officer. So this was a big goof on my part:

Match appreciated the gesture anyways! He’s such a stickler for the rules. I guess that’s why he’ll make such a great deputy huh? πŸ˜‰

I kept getting teary eyed and emotional over dinner. I am just so proud of him and I feel like this is the start of something really big for us. We’ll be moving to a town about an hour from where we live now and it’s a brand new town for the both of us. We’re going to start our married life off with two good careers (even if mine is a snooze fest at times, it still pays well and they take care of me) and hopefully we’ll be able to buy a house soon! I feel like such a grown up.

I know we’ll have our share of bumps ahead and being the wife of a deputy is not going to be easy, but I’m ready. Because it’s Match, and it’s us.

    Girl even I am getting emotional over this post! HA! So are you going to have a super long commute now? Starting over is such an incredible and freeing feeling, I bet you guys are going to have the best time making your new life together. And omg I can’t wait for “Date Girl Does Decorating.”

    that is such wonderful news… does this mean your commute to work will be that much longer when you move? or will it all balance out?

    and… was that cake as delish as it looked??

    Thanks ladies! The commute will be longer, πŸ™ it’ll be an hour now. But Match has been commuting an hour to his job for the past 8 months so it balances out. Hopefully my work will eventually let me work from home, fingers crossed!
    Oh and that cake was delicious but SO rich. I had maybe one bite and I was practically in a sugar coma! πŸ™‚

    GO Match! Congrats πŸ™‚ Glad you had fun celebrating!

    So if moving an hour away will you keep your job and commute? Nevermind I read the last comment and got the answer lol.

    Hopefully they will let you work from home some. That would be great πŸ™‚

Your comments make my day!
