2) chris and i have decided on an apt in greenville - yay! after some deliberation over another apt complex and renting a house, we're going with this location because it gives us a little more space for a comparable price. my favorite feature is the double vanity in our bathroom - no more sharing the sink!

one challenge i took from today's sermon is DO put all your eggs in one basket if that basket is God. i'm really going to miss our church and the friends we've made when we move. i trust that God has a purpose for us in greenville - church-wise, career-wise, otherwise... one of my professors has said that nothing truly worth doing in life comes without anxiety/struggles beforehand. i find that i rely more on God when i'm uncertain of and have little control over my circumstances - in other words during times of transition like the one we're beginning.
as far as seeing our families, we will be going to augusta next weekend for a visit - the first time since christmas!

this time we're focusing on my favorite mexican restaurant: jalisco. it is the mexican i long for on friday nights and was a staple of our friends' diet at tech. it's a buckhead family owned place that has plaques next to each of the tables and booths in honor of the regulars.
food: the food is great! who knows whether this is "real" mexican, but we think it tastes good. they pretty much have the best cheese dip, and the salsa is always excellent. my favorite entree is the golden enchiladas - deep fried chicken enchiladas with lots of the shredded white cheese and sour cream on top. the double order of chimichangas is also a great date night share meal. last thing - great sweet tea.
service: as at most mexican restaurants, the service is pretty quality. chips and salsa on the table as soon as you get there, and katy and i can often eat here in under 45 minutes. you can interpret that however you want - either i eat fast or they have fast service. the hostess is always the same lady - i think she owns the place.
price: typical mexican prices, $7-15.
address: 2337 peachtree rd ne, atlanta, ga 30305

all joking aside, they really did have some good suggestions about how to clarify some of my research and strengthen my conclusions. hopefully the work ahead won't take too long, and i can get my thesis completely behind me. i haven't posted in a while because i've been working on my thesis, and i probably won't post now for another couple weeks.
i'm still enjoying my job, and we're starting to get to crunch time re: looking for a new place to live. we've got several nice prospects in greenville, and we're definitely looking forward to the move. hopefully we'll have more on this front by the next time i post.
in other news, i ordered my season football tickets this week. i was pretty excited to order them for the first time (since i've always been a student before). i know that to some of you ladies it might feel like football season just ended, but i'm already ready for another exciting season. as espn would say, here's to football (esp. when you're no longer a student).
