Teaching job update!

I interviewed with Red Mountain Elementary today thanks to my sister for the hook-ups! I'll keep you posted! Nothing from Alpine yet. Sorry Salt Lake family!

Busy Week!

In the past week we have celebrated both my birthday and our 2 year anniversary! Both were great thanks to my wonderful husband. Since we are starving students Daniel decided to forgo the present and take me to Red Lobster, where I have been dying to go for months. When we got there and looked at the menu prices I remembered why Daniel kept saying "No!" . Haha. It was really good and fun for it to be just us. He even shaved and got dressed up. It was so cute!
After dinner we headed over to my parents where my family was waiting with my two favorite pies from Croshaws and a cake! Yum! Thanks to all of you for the gifts and funny voicemails! I loved them all! My brother Jordan even made a "special trip" from Vegas to make it in time for my party. I felt so loved to have everyone there. Afterwards we went to Daniel's parents to see the visiting relatives there. It was fun to see you Klint and Kylene!

On Conference Sunday we made breakfast for my parents then headed over to Daniel's parents for dinner/lunch. His mom is such a great cook and it was fun to see almost the whole family around the dinner table. It doesn't happen very much and it was very special. After dinner all the grand kids came into the kitchen singing "Happy Birthday" and Daniel's dad was holding a cake. I was confused to who's birthday it was! Haha! His parents gave me some money for a massage which I am so excited about! Thank you! What a great day with conference and all. My favorite talk had to be President Eyring's talk on Sat. morning. If you missed it, make sure you check it out!

The next day was our anniversary. I had a long Monday at the school and Daniel called a few times telling me to hurry home. Of course I'm irritated but I hurried home anyway. When I walked in our entire downstairs was spotless, all of the leaky ceiling tools I've put up with for two months were put away, and on the set table there were roses and a sweet husband standing next to it. I almost wanted to cry when he pulled out a pizza from the oven. It just melted my heart to think of all the trouble he went to to make my day special and all I got him was a new razor! Thank you Daniel for how much easier you make my life. I promise to love you forever plus two years!
