The call finally came on November 15th 2012 around 12:30 pm in the afternoon to Rexburg Idaho! I was on the way to my health and fitness class with my friend Sam and she was there to witness me pulling it out of our mailbox and shrieking in excitement! 🙂 Hurray! Time to call and text everyone that I’ll be opening tonight at 7:00!
Well 7:00 came! It seemed like it would never come! I had a bunch of good friends come and watch me open it while I had my family members on multiple speaker phone along with a couple skype sessions on laptop-ah so exciting! My best friend who’s currently studying abroad in Greece got up at 4:00 am to watch me (via skype) open my call, I feel so loved.
The call letter read…
