Guess What!!?

James and I signed on a new home last week!!! We are so excited and can't wait to move in. We have been looking to buy a home forever... we just hadn't found anything that was in our price range or what we were looking for. While we were driving around looking at a few places, we came across a model home... and lets just say everything just fell into place.

We have been living in a small one bedroom apartment for the past two years so we could save up all the money we can and so that we wouldn't feel as bad throwing our money away to rent. I have been feeling very claustrophobic and I swear I am constantly cleaning - but a small place gets cluttered so easy. All I can say, is I can't wait to move into a house that we can actually fit in, so we can invite friends over, and not have piles of stuff under our couch, bed, etc...

Our house should be completed by mid-October!! James and I are obsessed with our house. We have gone to look at it literally every day since we signed the papers. Here are some current pictures!

New Job

Yes, it is true, I have a new job, AGAIN! I know, it has only been 11 months since I started working with NetSmartz but I got this amazing opportunity to apply for the City of Provo in their Recreation Department - and I got the job!! I am so excited for the position - yet I am going to miss everyone I got to work with at the Boys and Girls Club and NetSmartz. I loved working with the NetSmartz program, and I had to turn in my Macbook today... it was a sad Friday.

So my first day with the City is Monday. I used to work part time as a Recreation Leader for Provo City while I was finishing up my undergrad, and now I am so excited I get to work for them again, fulltime, as a Special Events/Recreation Coordinator. I will be getting to run all the City's special events and programs! Yay!

Molly's Wedding

Yay! Molly got married over the Labor Day weekend!! Alex, James, Andrea and I were able to drive down to Vegas to be there and celebrate her wedding. It was so good to be able to be home for the holiday too. I can never get enough of my family when I go home.

Molly's colors were black, white, and purple.

We were all starving after pictures at the temple so we of course stopped at In N Out.

It was a fun night! Congrats Molly and Michael, we LOVE you.

Pirate Birthday

James turned 29 today and we celebrated his birthday on Friday at Pirate Island Pizza. It was so fun. We sort of went all out and had the whole thing pirate themed. Balloons, cake, party favors, the whole shabang. Thank you for all the great friends who came. It was so much fun.

Hot and Cold?

I have this picture sitting on my work desk, and whenever the kids at my work go into my office their first reaction is, "You know Katy Perry!!?" They get so excited and then I have to explain to them that the picture is of me and my husband. Now seriously, every kid thinks that the picture is of Katy Perry and not of me. Haha, it is probably because of her Hot and Cold music video:

What do you think?
