Home SWEET Home!

We are finally doing it. We are building a house! Derek and I are both really excited and anxious. We are hoping we will start digging at the first of January and be finished by June 30. Thats not much time, but we are going to attempt it. Our lot is on Marble Canyon Dr. with a great view of the Rodeo Grounds!

Catching Up!

So I have been a slacker on my blogging. Alot has happened in the last little while. I got promoted at work to be the Assistant Manager. Im really excited because I have all these new responsibilities and I'll get to work in the mornings. Derek and I will finally get to spend our evenings together. A couple of weeks ago Derek went up to The Crawford Mountain to go hunting. He had been putting in for this tag for quite some time. Unfortunatley he didn't see any big deer and was quite dissapointed. While he was away, I went up to Logan to spend time with cousins and friends. It was a great week. Now we are just gettin ready for christmas and snowmobiling!

We just LOVE Harley sooooo much! So has been such a great blessing in our life especially after all thats happened. The potty training is kinda tough, but she is learning. Other than staying busy with the pup, Derek and I are both working hard.

Lake Powell, Keith Urban, and a new additon to our family!

Lake Powell was once again awesome. My family came over for a couple days and it was great to spend time with them. The weather was awesome and the sun was super hot. I really think I could live there.
Keith Urban was AMAZING in concert. I went with a great friend from school. It was by far the best concert I have ever been too. We had pretty great seats which makes it even better. If you are a fan of his you definently need to see him live.
Harley joined our family really quickly. Derek and I have wanted a dog for quite some time now and we finally decided to do it. After lots of research and viewing hundreds of dogs on KSL we found Harley. She is a Shiranian which is a Shih Tzu and a Pomeranian mixed. Its crazy how much I love her already and we just got her Sunday. She is gonna be SPOILED.
Other than that our lives mostly consist of work and watching the Office.

Lake Powell was Heavenly!

Derek and I had an amazing time at Lake Powell. I was in dire need of a vacation. There has been a lot going on in my life thats hard to talk about, but the vacation was a great time to get away from life.

Physical Therapy

... Derek has finally decided on a major... Physical Therapy with an emphasis in sports medicine. We are both super excited and feel great about it. Im happy that my hubby has finally decided. It's been rough lately because his dad really wants him to take over the business, and although Derek is amazing at it, it just didn't make him happy. I couldn't imagine going through life hating your job. So Derek is going back to school...for a while unfortunately... but in the end it will be totally worth it. I can't wait to see where this job will take us.

The Shack

Since Im currently into reading, I have picked up a new book called The Shack. It is supposed to be a very compelling book that takes a man closer to God than he ever thought possible. Im only a couple chapters into in, but so far it is really good. I think everyone should read it. If you are interested in reading it, let me know and I will get it to you as soon as I am done.

Senses lost and the things I take for granted

I have been sick for about two weeks now and it has been rough. A couple days into it, my loving husband bought me some Zicam nose gel. Instead of reading the directions, I put the gel in and sniffed it up. Well apparently you are not supposed to do this because it burns your sinuses. So for about 8 hours I was in the most pain I have ever been in. I bawled the entire time. Now two weeks later, I cannot smell or taste anything. I am so afraid that I have lost my senses FOREVER!!!! So lately I have been thinking about the things I take for granted and how I can make them better.
1. My Husband: Sometimes I feel like I never praise him enought for ALL that he does for me. He is always there to listen to all my problems, fears, regrets, etc... He is my best friend and I love him more than anything in this world and Im going to work on being a better friend to him.
2. My House: Im always looking around for new things to decorate with or update instead of being thankful that I even have a house.
3. The opportunity to go to college. I seem to complain more about my classes and homework and tests than I am thankful that I get to further my education and become a better person. Im going to lessen my complaining and find more good at SUU.
4. Complaining about everything. This is my biggest weakness, I voice ALL my complaints. It is so hard to be around people who complain non stop and are constatly ornery. I don't know what my deal is, but it's a problem for me. I never look for the good. I only see the bad and then I tell everyone about it. Sorry everyone who has had to hear me complain. Im really gonna work on it.

Sam, My New Phone

Meet Sam. He joined our family last week and I really love him. He has been such a great phone. He gets me my email as soon as it is sent, he plays the best music, and is great at texting. Everyone should adopt one of these. Im now a member of the AT&T network so I can have more bars in more places.

The Bachelor Letdown

Once again my favorite never wins. As of tonight I am officially never watching the Bachelor/ette again. You would think that Jason would pick the right one especially after DeAnnas mistake. Oh well I'm over it.

Derek, Rob, and Dusty went over to Beaver to do some snowmobiling with some work buddies. They had a great time and the snow was awesome. Then for Valentines day, Derek and I, and Dusty and Emmi went snowmobiling to Brian Head for dinner. It was really fun, but really cold. It was -17 degrees and anyone who knows me knows that I hate being cold. It was fun though.

I Got It!!!

I finally got the job I have been wanting since August. I will now be working at the Hampton Inn and I am so excited to get my foot into this industry and be a part of the Hilton family. So currently I have 2 jobs. Im still working at Spirit, which I absolutly love. All the people there are so fun to be around. I am also going to school with 15 credits and cleaning two houses a week. Life right now is super crazy. I barely get to see my husband, which sucks, but I am learning a lot and loving it.

Derek had the opportunity to go to Vegas and watch BJ Penn and George St. Pierre battle it out at a UFC fight. He had such a great time with his cousins and his brother. Of course GSP won so it was a great day. Thanks Hanna brothers for takin Derek. We love and appreciate all you do.

My New Job

I did it. I finally got a job. Derek has been nagging me for months to get a job. I guess all my TV watching was driving him crazy. Hey I am a sucker for MTV and VH1 which are mostly filled with trash shows that make me feel better about myself. Anyway... I now work at Spirit Fitness. I am really excited because I need to get in shape and hopefully motivating others will help motivate me. So come visit me. I'll be the girl at the counter saying, "Welcome to Spirit. Have a great workout"!!!
