Searching for Jobs

I have spent all of my time searching for jobs. As of late, there are no music teaching jobs. I have had two interviews with a trucking insurance company, both of which went really well. I know what you're thinking... trucking?? It's not what you think! It's a really professional office, with really great people who work there. I should find out in the next week or so if I got the job, so keep your fingers crossed!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday, and I just wanted to let everyone know how fantastic I think she is. She has been the best mom in the world. Here are a few reasons why she is so special:

1. She is ALWAYS there for me when I need her.
2. She loves all of us, no matter how many dumb things we do.
3. She loves Disneyland just as much as I do :)
4. She has given me some of the best advice of my life.
5. She has also given me a shoulder to cry on.
6. Her testimony is unwavering, and she has taught me so much.
7. She knows how to have a good time, and is AMAZING at games :)

Thanks mom! I love you very much! I hope that this birthday is a special one! :)

Catching Up

There are multiple posts below because I am trying to catch up on blogging. And what's with the Disneyland music?? I LOVE DISNEYLAND! Randy and I will hopefully be going there soon, and I needed to put it on here because it just makes me so happy. Okay, happy blogging!

New Rug!

Randy and I recently moved to a new apartment, which is cheaper and bigger. Not a bad combination, right? The carpet can get really dirty, really fast, so we decided to get a new rug. I have been searching and all sorts of places to see about getting used rugs, and everything was sooo expensive! We found this awesome rug at Tai Pan today, and we bought it. It was much cheaper than any of the other rugs that I had seen. I can't wait to continue to decorate our apartment, and make it our own. Since I don't have a job yet, most of my time is spent searching for jobs, and trying to think of ways to make our apartment as cute as it can be on a budget. Any ideas are appreciated! :)


Okay, I really have to be better about blogging!! Randy and I had a wonderful Christmas together. Finances are still tight, so we bought a little miniature Christmas tree and decorated it. I surprised Randy by buying it because I told him we couldn't afford anything. Then I found a really great deal at Kohl's on a tree (even though it's small!) and a cute wreath for the door.

Aren't the presents pretty? Someone gave us Christmas wrapping paper and ribbon for Christmas, and we had TONS of fun wrapping the presents and making them look cute! We spent Christmas Eve with both of our families. First we ate dinner with my family. Every year we have different kind of soups. Then we went over to Randy's parents to visit with his family. Nate was here from Arizona, so it was nice to see him. Randy's oldest sister wasn't able to be here for Christmas, but she was here the week before.

On Christmas morning, Randy was soo excited to wake up! Okay, actually, I was the one who was excited :) Here is Randy, loving his Christmas presents. He looks a little funny in this picture. He either loves, or hates the blanket. I made it myself! Maybe he's confused? I mean, why would a BYU fan make a U of U blanket?
