In memory of family and friends who have lost the battle with cancer; and in support of the ones who continue to conquer it! Post this on your LJ if you know someone who has or had cancer.

First post of the new year!

I am alive I promise. I just don't seem to get on this blog as often as I do our family blog.

Life is good though. I have a job (even though I may not love it), a place to live, family, friends, and so much more!

I haven't really set New Years resolutions. I am just going to continue to work on myself and become a better person.

I know this post is short, but I really can't think of much else to say.

Check out our Family Blog! It gets updated more often!

Hi There...

So I really suck at updating my blogs... Today however I did update Alicia & Shaun: Our Journey Together. You should go check it out. It will tell you pretty much what has been happening in my life =)


Life is better!

I am not as stressed now. I am done with my second job and school is almost out (1 more day of class and then my final next week!) It is nice having time to just relax and to have time to bake and clean and do the normal things I didn't have time for.

Shaun has found some people to do work for and that has been nice. Hopefully this new guy he is working with will turn into a lot of work!

I am going to the symphony with my mom this friday and I am actually REALLY excited. They are doing musicals (which I of course LOVE!!) So it should be a fun time!


I find it interesting...

That for some reason people think it is so hard to get your name changed on your social security card. I am doing taxes today with my grandpa and the last 2 clients we had come in got married last year and neither one of them have got their name changed with SS, because, as on of the clients said "it's just too hard..." Umm okay.. I am not sure what is hard about filling out a piece of paper and going and waiting to have someone look at form and saying its okay... Maybe the waiting at the office is the hard part? I don't know... When I went I thought it was a pretty easy process, that took maybe 45 minutes at the most... but oh well... What do I know right?


I am REALLY REALLY annoyed with them right now. Today I tried to return a gift that we had got (yes I know I got married 6 months ago- yesterday- but we got the present late and just recently decided to return it)  that I thought they stock. Before the lady even checked it see if was an item they stocked she made me go try printing a paper off of my registry. Well my register is apparently no long in the system (at least at the store) or I tried calling the help number they have listed. They pretty much were no help after spending 20 minutes on the phone with them... The best part is, and by this time I am REALLY annoyed, that the lady says we can see what we can get on your license. She goes to scan the item and then informs me that its not even and item that they stock!!!! Why couldn't see have checked this for me 25 minutes ago?!?!?!?! Needless to say I will not be registering at Target when I have a baby and I will recommend to all those that I know who are getting married to not register there. Bed Bath and Beyond were SO much nicer about returning things!



Lately has been REALLY REALLY slow. Most nights after the day HUC leaves I just sit and play around on the computer, like I am doing tonight. Last night I even when home 2 1/2 hours early. Needless to say it has sucked. During they day, of the most part, think stay pretty constant, but not at night.

Monday I was an hour last for work, because I got stuck on the freeway. The freeway shutdown completely for about 45 minutes due to a car accident involving 4 vehicles. I was literally parked on the freeway. It was lots of fun... or something like that.

Hopefully think will pick up at work soon. I am starting to work on taxes again so that should keep me busy.


This week (minus not getting to spend much time with my hubby) has been pretty good. On Tuesday I found out that I don't have to take my lab class for physiology this semester! And then today I had time in between school and work I had sometime so I decided I would just swing by Best Buy and look around for a few. I went to look to see if by some miracle of a chance they had Wii Fit and THEY DID!!! I was way excited! I have been looking for it for a while now and I FINALLY have it!! I can't wait to go home a play with it! (This probably won't happen until tomorrow... Since I work until midnight)

Oh and tomorrow I get to go to the Draper Temple open house!

I am alive I promise!

I know it has been forever since I lasted posted on here, but things have been a little busy for me lately... So here is a little update while I have a few minutes.

Shaun and I are really liking it in Riverton. I love the area we live in and the ward we are in is great. Shaun and I both have a calling. We are teaching primary... The 9 year old who are turning 10... It is definitely an adventure. We have a boy in our class who is definitely a handful.. Hopefully as the year goes on things will get better.

I am still working at I-Med as a HUC and a Tele Tech. IHC is building a new hospital in Riverton, which is supposed to be done this fall, so I am hoping to get a job there because it is so much closer to my house.

I also started school again this semester. I am talking physiology again. Hopefully it will go well...

That is about my life. I am loving being married. Shaun is an AMAZING guy! He makes me completely happy!

I will try being better about updating this... I will try REALLY hard I promise =)


I think I am becoming accident prone...

Last night I was washing dishes, well the first item of the batch and I cut my finger. It started bleeding pretty bad so I ran to the bathroom to run it under water and see how bad it was. I think I freaked Shaun out a little bit, but he was really cute about the whole situation. After looking at it closer we decided that I should go get it looked at. We were able to get right in at Instacare and ended up with 3 stitches on my index finger on my right hand.  Fun for me... or not :)
