Thursday January 21, 2010 is a day that will always be remembered by my husband and me. We went to Murray in the morning for the most important interview of our lives: his interview to become a permanent resident of the United States. I was so nervous but we had everything we needed, so I tried to be confident. We arrived in Murray an hour early so we decided to eat breakfast since we couldn't go to the Immigration office yet. -Funny side note: We were on our way to McDonald's and Faiver turned left at a light but just made a U-turn. Right after that, a cop pulled behind him. Luckily, we weren't stopped although it was a funny start to our morning!- After that, we went to the office and checked in with security. We waited only about 10 minutes before getting called back. The immigration officer led us back to his office and had us stand so he could "swear us in". That was the first time I've ever done that!! Then he asked us for tons of documentation to show that we were really married and in a legitimate relationship. After 15 tense minutes, he informed us that he could now be a permanent resident. We were so happy!! He'll receive his green card in about 10 days. He is official!!
We told our parents and then went about the day as usual. We went to celebrate at Chef's Table in Orem. I have heard that it is so good so I wanted to try it. It was really fancy! There was a guy playing the piano, the front-lady took my coat and gave me a number, the table had a candle and a rose on it...it was really nice. The food was good too. For dessert, Faiver had German Chocolate cake, for the first time, and I had Creme Brulee. It was yummy!!
I'm so glad that everything went well and that I could enjoy this wonderful time with my husband.
