Joy keeps movin' on up

Happy Halloween! I have great news!!! As you all know, I've been the weekend anchor at KCAU Channel 9 in Sioux City for about two months now. But that job title won't be mine for much longer! I've been promoted to morning/midday anchor!!! Meredith Putney, who's the AM anchor right now, got a job in Fort Myers, Florida (we'll miss her...she's a solid anchor and a good friend...) She's leaving the first weekend in December and I'm taking over her duties. I still get to report on special assignments, I'll get unbeatable anchor experience AND I get my weekends back!!!
Many of you know that I was cautious to shoot for Meredith's job because I thought I would have to extend my contract. But my bosses gave me the option to finish out my existing contract (until August 31, 2005)...the raise isn't near as big...but money isn't everything right? (This experience is priceless!)
In other news...I already picked out my wedding dress!!! I went shopping with my mom and sister on Friday in Des Moines and found it. It's just perfect for me!!! (Only ten months away from the big day!!!)
Take care,

Jessica Wedding

Jessica was kind enough to pass along these pictures. Others should send more if you got 'em.
