6 month update

Well, apparently I only update this once every 6 months.  Last time I was talking about my New York trip, let's just say it was amazing.  Times Square, amazing!  Yankee Stadium, insane!  Food, crazy good!  I also had the opportunity to go to Phoenix again and most recently Indiana, random I know both trips to see family and they were fun :)  Next in line is hopefully a beach somewhere and possibly Chicago or Boston.
Work is good, I'm with a new company underwriting loans now.  I keep busy which is good.  Also, been working with HDSA to make Utah an affiliate, a lot of work especially after just completing the walk but it's good to stay busy.
Still not married or dating anyone seriously, they always say it happens when you no longer look.  I think I stopped looking about 3 years ago, with random spurts here and there so I just keep doing my own thing, no sense living in the future.
Still love the Jazz, went to the home opener on Halloween, it was a lot of fun.
Well, I lost motivation to type and look at the computer screen, until next time.

It's been awhile...

I always have wonderful plans of keeping up on posts, but when you pretty much do the same thing day in and day out week to week it gets hard to come up with clever posts. I'll just let you all know what I've been up to lately. I had the opportunity to go to a few Jazz games and another one this Friday. I will never complain about that :) I have a trip to New York planned in June. Yes, I am a Red Sox fan and yes I am going to two Yankees games, but it's Yankee Stadium, I HAVE to see it.

Mr Baxter seems to have settled into life here quite well. He's alone the majority of the time I'm at work and sometimes I think he prefers it. He makes me feel like I'm the most amazing person in the world when I come home though. I think we're good for each other, he gives me company and I would like to think I take good care of him.
I had the opportunity to visit my Grandma's gave yesterday, tomorrow would have been her birthday. I'm grateful I have the knowledge of eternal life and even though I know she's not at the grave, it brings peace visiting it and I feel closer to her. I can't believe it's coming up on two years since she passed away, I still miss her like crazy every day.
Lately, I've felt like somethings missing in life or I'm just in need of a change. I've been on sort of a journey to figure out what that could be (yes, even as I'm typing that I know how ridiculous that sounds) I've toyed with the idea of going back to school, but I'm not sure I'm prepared to be rejected or move out of state.
Well, I'm going to end this, I've recently started Instagram and seem to be better at that than this or even Facebook, I've even posted some pictures of my house :)

My extended weekend

It started with a very boring Friday night, started with grocery shopping and I'm sure included some NBA games and One Tree Hill, I purposely stayed up late so I would sleep in a little because I knew I had no plans for Saturday. On Saturday morning I got a message from my cousin (if you read this, again THANK YOU SO MUCH) asking if I wanted some stand-by passes that were soon going to expire. It's funny I was originally going to go down to Arizona this weekend, but backed out after I found out about going to New York. After going back and forth about what weekend I should come, I thought well what if I came this weekend. After looking at flights, it looked like I could get on one around 5:00 that night, so that's what I did. I quickly did some laundry, took Mr. Baxter to my parents and was on my way. It was such a fun quick get away. I've always wanted to do a spontaneous trip like that and thought it was perfect for the little slump I was in. It was great to see family, eat amazing oranges and constantly smell the orange blossoms and on Monday Mallory and I got pedicures and went to lunch at an outdoor patio place in short sleeves and flip-flops. We even had a bonfire on Saturday and went for a walk around the lake Sunday. It sure made it hard coming home to snow and 20 degree weather. It was such a fun weekend, I'm now feeling refreshed and got a little bit of sun which never hurts. Thank you everyone who made it possible!

Update of the past few months

It's been awhile, but I blame never wanting to get on my laptop. If I could blog on my phone I'd do it all the time. Well, lot's has happened the past few months. I purchased my first condo which I love. I'm planning to do a video walk through and I'll post it. It's a little scary now being an adult with a mortgage, but I'm really excited about it. I also went on another trip this time to Hawaii. My friend Lidia got married on the beach there, again one day I'll post pictures. Speaking of marriages, Chalice and Blake finally got married too. I was also able to go through the temple and be there for it, which was a good experience. Recently I've adopted a dog, his name is Baxter and he's a bichon frise (I think that's how it's spelled). Besides that I think everything else is the same.

WIth today being Thanksgiving I'm grateful for the life I have. I have sooo many blessings, it would take me days to list. I'm thankful for my family, friends, job, opportunities in life, gospel everything in my life. I'm going to keep this short and sweet hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll try to keep these posts closer together!

Epic Fall of 2011

And epic it was. It all started when I was running slightly late for an appointment on Sunday. Well that and I saw someone I knew that I was trying to avoid. I had my temple recommend interview with the Stake President. I got there and saw a group of guys talking, like 10 of them. I knew someone in the group and we all know I hate the small talk so I was hoping to avoid saying hi to them. I had the brilliant idea to run up the stairs, acting like I was in a hurry to avoid it. As I got to the second stair, I completed face-planted it. My scriptures went flying, purse and temple recommend. It was a good 15 seconds until I realized what happened and was able to get up. By this time a few of them came over to help me. I heard one say oh how sad, she's going for her recommend interview. I just grabbed my things and ran inside. To top it off when I got inside I lost it and started crying. I did hurt, but it was more the emotions of everything. I tried to find a bathroom, but of course got to the Stake President's office first. I think the secretary was like what in the world is wrong. I told him what happened and I was able to go to the bathroom to get myself together. All is well that ends well I suppose. I was able to do the interview and had a few battle scars. Of course I documented everything.

I just painted my toes the day before, maybe it was for the best it probably chipped off before the nail. Sadly my middle toe and ankle probably hurt the most from all of this and obviously you can't see that in pictures.

The top of my left leg. Of course I feel on the second stair so this scraped the top of it. It was the most painful thing to have my skirt on this over church.
My right leg, only I could fall so I hurt every limb on my body.
My leg and arm also have bruises, I think because my skin is darker you can't see as well, but let me tell you it still hurts.
I should bubblewrap myself I think...

Start of an adventure

What a day! I feel typing this out will help me feel better so here goes and I'm not going to edit it this will be my spit everything out post. So, the amazing vacation with the cruise, day in Disneyworld and layover in New York is coming up on Saturday. Everything is scheduled and ready to go as far as when I'll pack, get laundry done, all of that. Well, today Marne emails saying we probably won't make our flight from SLC to JFK. Did I mention we decided to fly standby...keeping in mind we need to make the cruise by Sunday? Well, it's a risk we took because it was so cheap. AFter probably 127 emails back and forth anywhere from calling in sick tomorrow and driving to Long Beach to catch a flight, to just driving to Vegas. Well, we decided on the flight from Vegas to JFK then Orlando. After more discussion, we decided to not chance driving the 6 hours and just fly down there. Well, that's been officially booked so now our trip will entail flying to Vegas, then New York, then Orlando, cruising to the Bahamas staying in Orlando for two days and going to Disneyworld flying back to New York and spending the day there and finally back home..all in a week. HOpefully the only stress will be what came today and the rest will be peaceful and relaxing although it is fun now having quite an adventure.

THe other craziness of my afternoon is last week I went to the doctor to get some blood work done because I haven't been feeling the best. Well, they found out I have hypoglycemia. I think I've only heard of it just a few times and it's something with blood sugar levels. Basically the doctor wants me to change my diet, she said to Google diet plans and then they'll evaluate where I am in 6 months. Does anyone out there in the blogging world have experience with it? Any helpful websites or books? From websites I've read and discussion posts I'm really excited for how I should feel after changing a few things. It answers soo many questions about why I feel the way I feel and the dizzy/fainting spells I've had.
WEll that was just in the span of a few hours, let's just say I can't wait until I'm on that ship :)
