10 Years Ago....

Lincoln High School
So its been 10 years this month that I graduated from High School. I've been thinking about this the last few days. I can't believe that its been 10 years and my reunion is next month. I will be unable to go due to it being back home in Washington. I am very proud that I went to Lincoln. I was the last of 5 kids to graduate from there. I guess I kinda had it a little easy the teachers knew my older siblings and yes they loved my sisters. I remember a few times in class I got called Shawna or Susan then I had to remind the teacher how long ago my sisters had graduated. One graduated in 87 and the other in 89. Also my grandpa graduated from Lincoln back in 1924, I never knew my grandpa because he past away when i was 7 months old. The one thing I loved about Lincoln is they had pictures of past graduates on the walls. So every day as I walked into one of my classes I would see my grandpa's picture. There was so much history behind Lincoln. My favorite class was newspaper, I had so much fun in that class. My friend and I did an article of the history of Lincoln. As we read old newspapers we found out that Elvis had performed in the bowl. (For those of you don't know the bowl is the football field and yes it does look like a bowl). So I am very great full for all the experiences I had while at Lincoln. I am bummed that I won't be able to make it to my reunion but I have all the best memories in the world. And yes I am one proud Lincoln Abe!

Pet Peeves

I have to say my biggest pet peeve since moving here to Utah has been stupid idiots not wearing a helmet while riding their motorcycle. I was shocked to learn that Utah has a no helmet law I grew up in Washington where you had to wear a helmet. You can ask Cody and he will tell you that it irritates me to no end to see people riding around with NO helmet. I grew up around motorcycles my dad had one and even before we could go on a ride with him we had to put on long pants a jacket and last but not least our helmet. I always want to roll down my window and yell at these idiots. I think Utah is stupid for having a NO helmet law. I sit in my front room and I hear more people speeding down the street on their crotch rockets and of course NO helmet. I'm not saying everyone is stupid but come on wear a dang helmet. This is Utah and they don't have the smartest of drivers. I've seen cars cut off motorcycles and it irritates me. The last thing I want to see is an accident with someone not wearing a helmet.

What A Great Weekend!

After a great first work week for me, Cody and I had the whole weekend off together. As many of you know Cody has been working pretty much 7 days a week. Well he actually had this weekend off. So I told him that he and I could go on a date. When my brother and sister in law and their kids and my older sister and niece came to visit last month. On our way to Salt Lake I had told them I Had never gone to Chiles. That day came and went and the next day my sister and I stayed here at the house while my brother and sister in law gassed up the car and ran some errands. My brother comes back to me with this To GO Box and said you left this in my car. I was thinking I didn't leave anything in the car yesterday. So I opened it and there was a gift card to Chiles and movie tickets for Cody and I. SO We were able to enjoy ourselves and go on a date together. We had a great lunch and we went and saw the Hulk. That was a great movie. I just want to thank my brother and my sister in law and my sister for that little treat for Cody and I we really appreciated it. I just have to say I am so great full for my family and everything they do for me. I love them and miss them lots!!!!

I survived my first day of working

So today was my first day actually working. Yesterday was orientation and today was training. They have me in the singles department. It wasn't all that bad but i'm not used to standing on my feet all day especially in steel toed shoes. It was nice we rotate every 30 minutes to a different work station so its a nice variety rather then doing ONE thing for 8 hours. Right now I can't stand the sight of nasty American Cheese. Its the hot dog of cheeses and doesn't smell all the pretty. So I get to look at lovely American Cheese for the next 2 weeks. And I have to tell ya my hair looks like crap after wearing a hair net and hard hat all day. I'm going to go relax and then go get my hair cut. Wearing that hard hat all day has convinced me I need to go a little shorter.

Started My New Job!!!

So I started my new job today. I'll be working at Schreibers along with Cody. For those of you who don't know what the heck Schreibers is its a cheese plant here in Logan. Cody has worked there since September of last year. He also worked there before before he went in the Army. So here I am starting a new type of job that i've never done before. I've always done the whole call center thing but I realized with my last job that I hated call centers and will never ever go back to one. I am excited for tomorrow to come. I'll be training for 2 weeks in "Singles" the next time you buy your American Cheese just think I could of helped make that cheese. They do all sorts of brands. I'm excited to finally be on with a great company. I hope i'll be working here for a while, well that is my plan anyways. I won't get to see Cody much the next few weeks i'll be working the day shift and he will be working the swing shift. I'll be giving more updates on how life is at Schreibers Foods.

Finally took our honeymoon

As many of you know Cody and I never got to take a honeymoon after we got married. So here we are almost 3 years now taking our honeymoon. We went to Disneyland and California Adventure. We spent a few days at each park. While in California we had dinner with a friend of Cody's. They were in the Army together so I was pretty excited to finally meet him after being able to talk to him for 3 years. We went to Outback for dinner and we stayed there for over 3 hours. Tuesday we started the day out by going to Disneyland. Now every time I go to Disneyland I like to go on Pirates but that ride was closed for a little so we went on the Indiana Jones ride which Cody had never been on. We spent all wednesday at California Adventure now that was a lot of fun. I now have a new favorite ride Tower of Terror. I would recommend that ride to anyone. So after California we headed off to Arizona to see Cody's friend from his mission. We were there for a few days. It was nice to meet his friends. They have two beautiful little girls who I miss already. Their 2 1/2 year old was just so sweet and nice. Cody's name became Bob so it was just a lot of fun. I have to say this was the best vacation I have ever been on. I hope you all enjoy the pictures!!

New to blogging!!

Why yes I have entered the blogging world. I figured since most everyone that I know was blogging I should do it as well. Not everyone in my family has Myspace or Facebook this way they can enjoy the updated in mine and Cody's lives. I will try to updated this as much as possible. I hope you all enjoy my lovely updates.
