Concert in Nashville

I added this all kind of randomly, I promise I'll get better. But here are the pictures to go with my last blog entry. There is a picture of my cute house and also pictures from the conert.

Here are some pictures finally

This is Utah Lake up in Payson Canyon. I went on a drive with a few friends from my ward, it was beautiful!

Being a carrer woman is tough work!

It was a very strange feeling going to lunch with two of our clients. It was quite intimidating as I tried to appear as knowledgeable and mature (despite the fact that I look like I am 17 maybe 18 and I had worked for my company a whopping 2 weeks). They were very nice though and everyone was mortified that we had come to Tennessee and were leaving on Saturday morning before the Tennessee Auburn game. I'm pretty sure there were 10 people that asked if we were staying for the game.

We had a great week though. I thought ok we'll go to work for our 8 hours and then come back to the hotel and go play for a few hours and rel axe. No, not so much. We ended up working 9-10 hour days. We did though eat at some wonderful restaurants. There is nothing better than going to a restaurant and ordering what ever you want and not having to worry about how much it will cost you. You better believe I ordered a drink every time! (Which I usually hold back because I just can't justify it in my head)

We had one day that we actually had time to do stuff. The last day we finished early and had to drive to Nashville to fly out the next morning at 4:00 am. So we decided to do a little touring (at the persistence of our boss) so we went to tour the Grand Ole Opry. It was a lot of fun. We also decided that we would go to a concert there that night. It was so much fun, we got to see Carrie Underwood, Jo Dee Messina, Terri Clark and a few others. It was great nothin better than going to a country concert in Nashville Tennessee!

So have you ever got to experience running/sprinting through an airport? Well I think I've done a fast walk/half jog before but Saturday I got to experience sprinting through the Denver airport. We had a short layover and as we were quickly walking to the terminal over the intercom we heard that our flight was preparing for departure. My co-worker (Heidi) was very anxious to see her husband and I was ready to be home so Heidi start running. I follow after here. Now it was like we just had to run down the hall oh I'm pretty sure it was the opposite end of the airport that we were at. I was so exhausted when we finally made it. Now that I think back it was quite embarrassing but at the time you just want to get on that airplane.

Oh by the way did anyone see my mom, she sang in General Conference Saturday afternoon, she was pretty excited.

Business woman goin on a business trip!

Today my boss asked me if I wanted to go to Tennesse on a business trip! Do I ever, I was so excited. It's really a strange feeling that I'm actually old enough and suposidly knowledgable to go on a business trip. I actually have no idea what I'm going to do on it but I'm excited nonetheless. All I know is they already gave me a $100 check to cash so I can have cash with me and they gave the girl I'm going with a credit card for all of our purchases! We fly out monday morning and get back Saturday morning. I feel really bad though because the girl that started about a week and a half before me doesn't get to go. I almost felt like the Devil Wear Proda when she has to tell the girl she gets to go to France instead. Am I a complete jerk? Well I didn't have any say in it. So I'll have to let y'all know how it goes.

I had more car problems. UGGG I was just mad this time, it was my battery. Again I went out to go to work and my car wouldn't start. Luckily this time I listened to the spirit and went out earlier rather than just sit around in my house. I was able to walk to work on time. I'm debating whether to return the car or not. I don't know.

The boy drama...not a whole lot there. There are some cute kids in my ward nothing much has happened yet. Everyone is really slow out here. I will be patient though.

Well I guess that is all the adventures for now!

The New Adventrue: Spanish Fork

I've finally written a blog! Thanks to Crystal and Eliza. I've had this blog for about a month now I just haven't yet written anything. My adventure began about a week ago and already it has been quite the adventure. I had a great first day at work, I didn't mess anything up to terribly bad. Then Tuesday morning I go out to my newly purchased car (Toyota Corolla '05) and went to start it and it WON'T start. Immediately I start freaking out realizing I'm going to be late my 2nd day of work. So I start running/walking to work. I called me boss and left a message and said I'd get there as soon as possible, I made it only about 10 minutes late. I luckily only live about 9 blocks from my work. My boss was very kind and offered to help in any way. My dad came down on Wednesday and we towed my car to a shop turn out its the starter! This is why I spent more money for a nicer car so i wouldn't have these kinds of problems but what can you do? I finally got it fixed on Friday. This whole car episode did have it benefits though. I did get a couple rides from the cute kid that I work with, so it wasn't all bad ;) ;)

My job is going great though and I have finally figured out what the company that I work for actually does (it only took me 1 week to figure out!). Their clients are typically insurance companies and they collect payments from the person that was in an accident with the insurance client. Make sense? Well I am the administrative assistant and I do whatever random jobs need to be done. We also open claims and prepare them for the specialists. I really enjoy the people I work with we have a good time.

The wonderful and exciting singles ward...ok at first I was a little nervous but apparently all the good looking guys come in a little late, why is that? Anyway there are some really nice people and I think it will be a lot of fun. My roommate Shaela still needs a little convincing of the need for a social life. She isn't quite that excited about kick ball for FHE!

The Adventures of Spanish Fork will be continued...
