My Awesome Husband

As many of you know, my amazing husband is a school bus driver. Last Saturday, he competed in the Bus Road-e-o, and placed second in the novice division! Wahoo! My niece, mom, and I had a lot of fun cheering on Randy along with our friend Emile, and her daughter Caroline.

Here is Randy, maneuvering the oh so dangerous off-set alley :)

This is the event he was disqualified from. He said it was the best parallel parking job that he has EVER done... until he hit the cone!

They had to back up between these cones that were really close to the bus. I have trouble backing into a parking spot. I'm pretty sure I'd be dead in this event!

But not Randy. Ta Da!

Aww.... he's so cute :) All in a day's work!

Allergies, Jobs, and Earthquakes... Oh My!

Weird title, right? First of all, I think I might have some seasonal allergies going on. What the heck?? I've never had them before! My head has felt crazy weird all week. My eyes have been puffy and hurt, and my sinuses hurt. I thought that I was getting headaches from too much tension or something, but nothing was helping. Randy finally suggested that it could be allergies, so I took a zyrtec (and a long nap!) and FINALLY feel a little better. My sister suggested that I get some claritin (spelling?) because it's over the counter and lasts 24 hours. I'll give it a try... How do you people with allergies deal with it?? It could just be in my head, no pun intended!

Job update. Randy will be flying out on Monday to Wisconsin. They are paying for EVERYTHING, and it seems like he will have a really good time :) I will miss him though! For those of you who hate corny/sappy/lovey dovey, don't read the rest. It will be the first time that he will be away since we've been married. Aww... and speaking of married, today is our 6 monthiversary from our wedding! I am so happy to be married to him! Okay, back to jobs... He was also randomly contacted by the LDS church TODAY for an interview TOMORROW. He has been working really hard to try to do the assignment that they gave him. It's awesome that they want to meet him in person so quickly! So, cross your fingers! Maybe we'll get to stay in Utah instead of heading out of state :)

Okay, did anyone feel that Earthquake that happened like five minutes ago?? I was sitting here at work when it felt like a herd of Elephants were running around the room. The computer screen started shaking, and the whole building moved. It was crazy! I haven't felt an earthquake since I was really little. Everyone in my office felt it, so ask them for verification of whether or not it was really an earthquake :) It was! Believe me! It brought a lot of excitement... hey, only an hour and a half left of work! Yes! Alright, I think it's time to end this post. Just remember to keep your fingers crossed for Randy, that he might get a job soon!

Randy is going on a vacation!

As most of you know, Randy has been applying for jobs like a mad man. He has seriously applied to so many places that sometimes, when he hears back from companies, he's like "when did I apply for that??" Well, at some point, he applied for a job in Wisconsin. He heard back from the company, did an initial phone interview, had to do some huge test to prove he was smart, and just heard the other day that they want him to fly to Wisconsin for an on-site interview!

I was so happy to hear that Randy has gotten this far in the interview process! Whether or not he gets the job, at least it's a moral boost. He's still waiting to hear from a couple of jobs in Utah, and is still applying to more jobs. Hopefully he will find a new job soon, because I KNOW he is so sick of applying for jobs!! So, perhaps we'll know soon whether or not we'll be heading to Wisconsin! I would love to stay here in Utah with family, but Randy really needs experience. So if Wisconsin is the right place, to Wisconsin we'll go!

Cooking, Cooking, Cooking...

If anyone wants some *awesome*delicious*amazing*yummy* muffins, go to Lehi Roller Mills and pick up a box! Oh my gosh. They were sooo good! Randy and I bought a bunch of Lehi Roller Mills mixes back in Christmas when they were on sale, so we are stocked up for a while. I am so glad that we bought the muffins! We have blueberry and raspberry.

Also, here is a picture of one of my "Honey-Bear Brownies" (see post below for explanation). They turned out delicious! I have been having a lot of fun experimenting with different recipes, and I think Randy is enjoying it :) If you have a favorite recipe, PLEASE let me know! I would love to try it!!
