Drew's BIG Exciting News!!!

Get ready to be excited!!

Two years ago, Drew applied to Texas Christian University. (Obviously we were still living in Texas at the time.) He didn't get in. He was sad. I was sad for him. 

Fast forward a year. Drew was getting a little restless with his job and still wanted to go back to school. He decided to give it another whirl. This time he applied to a Communications Masters Program at the University of Texas (at Austin) and Texas A&M. He wasn't accepted into UT and Texas A&M told him they didn't have any funding to offer.

However, around the same time we heard from Texas A&M, Drew also had been offered the job in North Carolina. We had decided to go to North Carolina regardless of what news we heard from Texas A&M. Good thing.

A couple months ago Drew applied to Wake Forest University. He applied to their MBA program. Isn't he a fighter?? He just doesn't know when to quit. Most people would give up but Drew knows how important education is. And he wants to be able to take care of his family in the future.

3 days ago he was told that he was ACCEPTED to Wake Forest!! 


I couldn't be prouder. He is an amazing man, husband, father. 

(Side story: While we were in NC apartment hunting, Drew got chilly. He ran into TJ Maxx and came out with a Wake Forest sweatshirt. Little did he know he'd be associated with them just around a year later!) 

Anyway, yesterday we went and toured the campus (by ourselves. Nothing formal.) It's so pretty! The buildings are WAY prettier than BYU's. While we were there, Drew said. "I feel like I'm cheating on BYU." Haha!!

This is a chapel on campus. Drew's TJ Maxx sweatshirt and a $5 WF hat.

Going crazy!

Some pretty building. I have no idea what it's used for.

This where he'll be taking his classes (we think).

My handsome MBA hubby!

The kids are excited for him, too!

Congrats to Drew!!!
