It All Works Out

I'm so excited!

I will be moving in a few weeks. I will be living with two of my best friends. I will be having my sister with me for a few months.

Everything is lining up quite nicely. :)

When something is right...

When something is right, you know. Things will line up, you'll be so happy, and you just want to dance.

For example, 2 days ago, I was looking at apartments in Salt Lake City. Maybe one or two listings would have worked. Then, yesterday, I was offered a job in Salt Lake City that I really wanted after the interview. When I went online to look at apartments again, BOOM!!! All of a sudden there were tons of options!!! There are a couple that I'm really leaning towards. There is one in particular that is $710/mo for a 3 bedroom place. Which is amazing!

Not only that, but my good friend also got a job interview in Salt Lake City. His interview is Monday, so we started planning a trip up there. I currently have 3 apartment viewings scheduled. I then got a call from the Lehi Legacy Center, and they have a training that I need to do with them scheduled for Monday... Coincidence? I think not. I'm so excited. Everything is lining up perfectly, and while I sure do not understand it, I am absoultely not complaining because I'm so happy.

I'm moving to Salt Lake City, and I could not be any more excited. I love it up there, and I'm beyond excited to live with Annie again.

Another Good Day

Everyone has those days where, even though there are a few minor hiccups, it is a very good day. Today was one of those days. I woke up and decided to get some errands taken care of. Then I watched Eat, Pray, Love. I swear that is one of the best movies produced in a long, long time. 

From there, I also wrote a follow-up interview letter. Not one hour later, did they give me a call about some of my references and after a few phone calls back and forth, we got everything sorted out. I'm now awaiting, hopefully, for a phone call with a job offer in the next couple of days. 

I also was able to take the day off from work making it an entire week off for me. Which is always something that can make a person happy.

Again, as I said, there were a few hiccups. But why dwell on those? You can look at any situation and see either the bad or the good. I choose to see the good. 

My dear friend, Rendall, asked me the other day to accompany him to the Thunderbird Ball. I got a new dress and everything. I'm very excited. There will be updates. Promise.

Beauty and the Beast!

There are only a few movies in this world that always make me smile. What is the choice for this evening? Beauty and the beast! 

It, without fail, is one of my favorite movies. I am so glad I own it on DVD. My kids, especially my daughters, will watch this movie... Many, many times. And i'll be right by their sides watching it with them. I hope my husband doesn't mind watching movies over and over again, because I tell you what, This movie will be watched many many times during the course of my life. 

Today was a good day. I read something online, and today I put into effect... 

It only makes sense, you feel better when you put a little time into yourself. And it worked. I felt great all day long!

One Day...

These are some of the things I'm striving for...

One day I want to be married. One day I want to have kids. One day I want to be so ridiculously happy that I don't know what else I could want. One day I want to buy 2 Nerf guns and leave a "You're under attack as of now" memo next to it when my husband gets home from work. 

One day I want to send my daughters off to prom. One day I want to see my sons get nervous to go pick up their dates. One day I want to wake up every day and just say, "This is a good day because I'm surrounded by people I love and who love me." 

I know I have those days now, but I'm so excited to have that happen every day, and I know it will.

No one is perfect, and so I am aware that there will be hard days, but as long as I get to kiss my kids on the forehead when I send them off to school, and I get to crawl into bed with the love of my life every night, I have this feeling that it'll be a great life.

So, Today was a beautiful day!!! It was 68 degrees outside, and sunny. My good friend Thomas and I went to the park. I studied a little bit, and he hit some golf balls. Our friend Tyanna met us there with her brothers, and we all hung out for hours. I got a beautiful sunburn going on, and I can already tell I look better. I always look so much better with a tan. I am so excited for this weather to continue just the way it has been going. 

I keep learning new things everyday. The quote I'm living by right now is, "Look like a girl, Act like a lady, Think like a man, Work like a boss." I have tested it out, and it seems to be working out for me. I have noticed that I don't talk as much, and I am kind of liking that because it gives me a moment to truly hear what people are saying before I respond. I've also learned that I have a lot of things that I don't need to share with people. I can just keep some things to myself. 

I look forward to updating this blog every day. I hope someone gets to read it.

So, today is the 2nd day of April. What am I going to do with it?

I've learned that you have to do something that makes you smile everyday. I know that sounds cliche, but its true. And you can't just sit idly by waiting for things to happen to you. You have to go out and get what you want.

What do I want today? I want some ice cream, I want to study for my test, I want to watch The Unit, I want to get to bed early.  The reasons I want these things don't matter to anyone but myself. All I need to be looking out for right now is me. I don't have the time or energy to worry about anyone else or try to tell them what is best for them.

Also, again, don't let yourself be afraid of what you want. Take your risks now!!!

Thanks Amy.

I'm actually really excited to keep this upbeat look on life. It feels pretty good. :)

Twenty Twelve

I've decided that I cannot let myself be afraid of the things I want. So what have I done lately? I've been doing well at work, I've been applying to jobs all over the country. From Los Angeles to Minneapolis to Dallas to Boston. I'm not supposed to be in this city anymore, that is for sure, but I'm not sure where I'm supposed to go. So I figure I'll try and open as many doors and windows as possible, and then where ever I find a job is where I'm going to end up. I would love to live in Minneapolis again. I love that city, and I love the people in that city. However, I think it would be a really cool experience to live somewhere I've never lived before. Explore entirely new horizons and meet new people. 

I will keep you updated on my adventures... especially because I updated my blog and now it looks all cute and stuff. :)
