I'm Going To Be An Auntie

My sister Drew is PREGO!!!!! I am so excited, words cannot even comprehend how thrilled i am. Drew is about 9 or maybe 10 weeks along. She has been a little sick, but for the most part she is doing quite well. Her first doctors appointment is the week after Christmas. I think it is a boy but most of my family thinks it will be a girl. I guess we'll just have to wait and see in February or Marchish... Drew and i are only 14 months apart and i still feel like i am getting used to her being married and it has been almost 2 years. ha ha I am so excited to meet the newest member of our family!

XanGo Christmas Party

Last night was one of the best nights EVERRRRRR. XanGo had their employee Christmas Party at the Thanksgiving Point Barn. Jason Hewlett was the main entertainment for the night and he was hysterical. My friend Brea and i were crying we were laughing so hard. After he entertained for about an hour, the founders of XanGo did the prize giveaways, which was taking the money from a founders pocket. There were six people call up to get the money from the founders, then they called a name to take the money from the President of XanGo's wallet. Guess what?! It was ME!!! I was in complete shock and i was so freaking excited! Craig (The President of XanGo) pulled out $200 cash and a coupon to Sharon's Diner in Holiday. Gordon (one of the founders of XanGo) wanted to pay me $50 for the coupon to Sharon's Diner. I laughed and thought he was joking, but after i got off the stage he took the microphone and asked where the girl was that got the coupon and said, "I will seriously pay you $50 for the coupon." So, he came down and got the coupon and i received an extra $50! Best night of my life! Oh, and earlier that day, at the XanGo Christmas breakfast, there was a $25 gift card to Target!!!! XanGo is such a wonderful company and i feel so lucky to be apart of it.

Here is a picture of Me, Vanessa and Brea at the Christmas Party. We dressed up as Christmas Ornaments. ha ha it was hilarious!

Time Waits For No One

The other day my mom sent me this email and it really made me think of how i waste so much time. Seriously i do. I just go in and out of the day hoping for the next day to end, and it is just an on going process. It is quite sad. I take some many things for granted. I am grateful i have a brother and sisters and a mom and dad, and i am extremely grateful i have never failed a final exam. (knock on wood)I have so many wonderful people in my life, and i am so grateful for my friends and family. I love you all. I will never take you for granted again. xoxo

Real Salt Lake

Today at XanGo (where i work) Some players from RSL came to show off their new 2009 MLS cup!!!!!!!!!! It is the most amazing feeling to be apart of a company who represents RSL. They played a great game as the underdog in Seattle and won against LA Galaxy. I am not going to lie, i wasn't a big soccer fan until now. I am in love with soccer!

Disturbing 911 Call

As i was driving to school today, i was stuck in traffic for about an hour and a half, and as i was listening to the Morning Zoo on 97.1zht, they played a disturbing 911 call. Donna Jackson is a 56 year old woman who was home alone on December 4, 2009. Donna's dog was barking very loudly at 1am. Donna walked down her stairs to find a man pounding on her sliding glass door. He was trying to break into her home. Donna's husband was at work and she couldn't go to her neighbors home because they are all older than 80. Donna called 911 right away to get help. The man eventually broke into her home and she shot him in the chest with her shot gun and killed him. Click on the link and listen to the call. Donna is so calm and kept composure through most of the call. I applaud her for how amazing she is!

Life can be so Frustrating

I have finally come to realize, things change, plans don't work out and life is just so darn frustrating. I thought i had everything figured out for 2010. I was going to work full time and not go to school January through April to save up for an amazing and once in a life time trip to Europe!!!! Then, when i got back from Europe i would move to Provo and just see what path my life is going in. Well, pretty much Europe has fallen through :( which i am so sad about. But, hey, there is going to be plenty of time for me to save up and go some other time; and now i am second guessing myself moving out. I am so close to being done with my associates, i don't want to just take a year off of school.. When i planned all of this, it felt like a good idea and now, i'm just not sure. We'll see what happens. Everything happens for a reason, and we will see what the reason is for this situation. It better be good!

Lily's Cleaners (THE WORST PLACE EVER)

I had the craziest experience as i went to the dry cleaners tonight. My friend Brea took her brand new jacket to the dry cleaners because there was a baby print with spit up on the back of her coat. It wasn't a big spot and shouldn't be very hard to get out. Well, when Brea went to pick up her jacket, it was completely ruined. The press has flattened the pockets and you could see all the lining on the outside. The cleaners did an awful, awful job. Brea came to work upset about what happened to her jacket so i decided i would go back with her to the cleaners to see what they could do to help fix her jacket. As we walked in the door and explained the situation, Lily (the owner) automatically became defensive and started yelling at the two of us. She said it was the fabric that made the jacket look like crap. Then Lily proceeded to tell Brea her coat was cheap and poor quality. I chimed into tell Lily she had the worst customer service i have ever seen. She told me to shut up and i am not apart of the situation. WHOLLY MOLLY!!!! Who says that to a customer? Brea went on to ask for her jacket to go through the cleaners again and if it does not look the way it should, she would like her monies worth for the jacket. Lily went on to say sue me! Brea and i were in shock. No one should ever be treated poorly because a worker screwed up and wouldn't own up to their mistake. Come on!! I don't even know how it escalated into a yelling fight. It was insane. An owner of a company should NEVER EVER treat their customer like that. Lily's cleaner is located in Saratoga Springs. Don't ever go their and give her your business.

Get On With It

I've decided to get on with it! I found an appartment and i am moving out in April!! I'm freaking out. For so long everyone has told me to get out of my parents house and go live in Provo.. Well, that is exactly what i am doing. My mom was really sad when i told her last night. She wants me to stay home forever. Ha ha I'm pretty sure i will finish my generals at UVU and then hopefully transfer to the University of Utah. I just love that school and i am a total city girl. Life will be completely different, but i need that change. Where i am at in my life just isn't working. I'm not as close with people as i thought and other people seem to be moving on with their life faster than i can get my life started. It just seems like a good time to go for change.

California Vacay

Last week I went to Californ-I-A for a little vacay with the fam. It was so fun and such a long week. We went to Universal Studios on Monday, Disneyland on Tuesday and Wednesday, Thursday we drove to Newport Beach/San Diego, Friday we went to the San Diego Zoo (which was amazing) and Saturday we went to Sea World, then on Sunday we came home. I loved every second of being in the happiest place on earth. It was only a week long vacation and i couldn't seem to put the camera away. I have over 350 pictures ha ha.
