Still alive and kickin'...

Hey friends...so I know it's been about oh...forever since my last post. Well a lot has happened since Thanksgiving...lets see...I went home for Christmas and boy was that an adventure...Western Washington was hit with a huge blizzard...it was the most snow I've seen up there since I was a little girl. It was fun!!


I moved to a new apartment after the new year. I have some great new roommates...Here is a pic with me and Katie on the left and Lynsi on the right. I love these girls...It's been living at the Timp Gateway Condos.




I will be moving AGAIN on Aug 24 up to Orem...At the end of Feb I got laid off from my job and so I decieded to go back to school full-time...I will be graduating April 2011...with a degree in Secondary History Education (high school) and a minor in Music and another minor in Political Science...I decided to delay my graduation a semester and that way I would be able to include the PoliSci minor...This way I will have a better chance of getting a job when I'm done. So the reason for the move is to be closer to school (within alking distance). I'm really excited and I think that this lay-off was the best thing to have happen. I never would have had enough guts to quit myself but when this happened I didn't have a choice. My wonderful family and close friends have been so incrediable supportive...they have been such a blessing!!

It's interesting have all this free-time. I have decided to not work for the summer and just focus on school. I was fortinate enough to have saved some money to live on. I have found that it's hard to not go out and find a job. It's instinct really...haha...so I decided to build a flower box...I was bored...haha...I turned out great though!!...here are a couple shots of the pretty flowers...

Other then that there isn't much new right now...other then it's wedding season...WAHOO...I have been busy doing flowers for some weddings and even more receptions to go to...it's going to be a great summer I think...

Mariah! It's been forever! Hey, I'm sorry to hear about your job, but I'm excited that you get to focus on school now. Way to go with all the minors and stuff- you will be VERY educated by the time you are done. I miss ya, old roomie!
