Two months later...

I'm sick. I think I got Levi sick too. No bueno. We left early from church today because I was about to have a coughing fit in the middle of Sacrament meeting. I'm thankful Levi could drive new home. I'm so grateful to have a partner as caring as he.

Yesterday, we went to Levi's sister's baby shower. 
It was so nice to see his family. They are all so very kind and have been warm & welcoming since I met them. I'm thankful for that. I'm lucky.

I enjoy seeing all of my father-in-law's wooden creations. I appreciate the time & talent put into his pieces. I'm grateful that he taught Levi this wonderful talent. 
On Friday, we went to see Dr. Strange. It was pretty good and I always enjoy watching the Marvel movies with Levi.

The evening before, my friend and colleague Chuy (or did I call him Chewy before?) married his high school sweetheart. 
It was a fun reception although I'm so bummed that I hit traffic and missed the ceremony. The bride walked into the Up song. Levi had to work and I miss having him by my side. 
This is CJ. She trained me for my current position. I couldn't be more grateful for such a patient, funny, helpful & kind colleague and friend. 

I'm sad that this 4 day weekend has come to a close, most especially since we're both under the weather. 
Bummer. 👎

Date Night.

I just wanted to remember this evening out with my sweetheart. We went to Filippi's in Santee, had the usual family combo of spaghetti, lasagna & ravioli with a meatball. We talked about the upcoming Fall season and our Fall traditions. We smiled a lot, teased a bit and enjoyed each other's company, immensely. I truly love evenings like this.

A Friday Nite Quickie.

  • Just got home from church after setting up a little more for the ward luau tomorrow night.  I should be downloading music for the luau right now but I'm kickin' back a little, watching Grey's Anatomy. 
  • I started watching Grey's Anatomy about a month ago and I'm on season 6. I actually really enjoy it!  I love all the anatomy lingo but occasionally I get tired of Meredith Grey.  Miranda Bailey is probably my favorite, along with Lexi Grey.  I'm so consumed with GA that I feel like they're my O'Malley.  <3 li="">
  • I'm going to work tomorrow. I LOOOOOOOOVE that I have the option for overtime, which will help with my upcoming birthday!  I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing for the day, but there will be church.  Maybe a brunch?  We'll see.
  • Have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy my job?  I really do as weird as that sounds. I really like my department, the people I work with and what I do.  I get to work with numbers all day and calculate all the money judgments my firm sends to court.  I like how mellow my department is which is such a huge blessing. I like that one of the partners feels the need to tease me each day.  She's a riot, that's for sure! :) It's just so nice and laid back at just the right times during the days. Our annual review is coming up next month, I'm interested to see what will be said.  
  • I have more I want to blog about, but I've gotta get this music going.  Until next time....

Longing for Harrah's!

On August 7th, I booked a night for our anniversary at Harrah's SoCal. It was my gift to Levi since he LOVES lazy rivers. It was such an amazing day there. We loved floating down the lazy river at night.
It was just so relaxing and I loved looking up at the sky with the purple lit hotel. 
The next morning was my favorite. We had about 2.5 hours before check out so we went swimming. We started off in the lazy river but ended up floating around the 21+ over pool. I seriously loved it so much. I was relaxed on a float as Levi floated around me in the water, while holding on to my tube so I wouldn't float away or into people. I loved him so much for doing that. He just let me relax and enjoy myself. We were just two carefree people in love and enjoying life in that moment. 
I love this man with all of my heart and I can't wait to we find ourselves together again at Harrah's!

Divinely Favored.

There's so much I need to blog about, but for now this is on the forefront of my mind & heart...

This man, this single human being, this love of my life makes me so incredibly happy. I look at him and wonder what did I do in my life to be blessed like this!? I will never fully understand why this amazing soul of a person chose me (and continues to choose me) to love for the rest of eternity. 
I am divinely favored, that is for damn sure.

A very good reminder!

I was reading up on the life of Pres. Howard W. Hunter and came across a great point to ponder;

I definitely needed this little reminder today. 👍

The Last 2 Weeks!

Man, the last 2 weeks have been BUSY.
I didn't even really get to post much about Father's Day.  It was a wonderful time spent with family.  I always love seeing my Dad.  I'll definitely have to post more about my Dad, SOON!
Last week was FULL of training, since my partner was going to be out on vacation this past week.  Wait, did that make sense? 2 weeks ago we trained...5 days of drinking out of a firehose.  Seriously, it was a lot and I think it started to take a toll on both of us.  Thankfully, I totally like my partner and I get the feeling that it's mutual.  She's way chill and funny, which helps since we work closely with each other.  So this past week of work was better than I expected!!! Seriously, I'm so lucky.  I thank my lucky stars and my Heavenly Father that I was able to endure it and come out on top!! The cool part is that my boss let me "spin the wheel".  It's a little incentive for our department and our other offices.  You could spin anywhere from $25 - $100.  I LUCKILY spun and landed on the one $100 spot!  I was stoked!  It was a great way to start a Thursday!
To start this past week, Levi and I were asked to speak in church.  I'm not gonna lie, I was nervous for both of us  We had a week to prepare and this would be Levi's first talk, EVER!  True to form, Levi was calm, funny and informative. Also true to form, I was nervous, emotional (it was on the Priesthood, so I spoke about my Dad) and VERY teary eyed.  I couldn't have been more proud of Levi.  Seriously, so many ward members came up to introduce themselves and compliment us....mostly him and I was perfectly ok with that.  He did an amazing job.
I'm so thankful that life is going to slow down for a little bit, that we can both get into the rhythm of our jobs and figure out having one partial day off together.  Saturdays are definitely different and somewhat lonely.  Saturdays used to be our adventure day.  It's ok though, we've just become more creative with our adventures now.  Until next time....ciao!

The Bigger Picture.

Stupid pity party. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed that I forget the big picture.
I won't be perfect at my partner's job, but I'll do my best.
My talk will be the best that I can share because it'll be from the heart.
I will look forward to meeting the ward members after church and enjoy a nice little snack. This will help Levi and I make more friends. 
Everything will be accomplished and it'll all be ok. 
Breathe, Ehu...just breathe.


Work has been overwhelming lately. Seriously, I've been in overdrive this week trying to learn my partner's desk before she leaves for vacation. I'm not gonna lie, I'm mentally exhausted by the time I get home. Everything looks similar and my notes don't quite help at times. Honestly, I hope next week goes my like a blink of an eye. I'm just so mentally done and I've still got two more days of training. Seriously, I'm so spent I just want to scream. I miss just working my desk and processing court judgements.

Not to mention that both Levi and I were asked last Sunday to give a talk, this Sunday. Honestly, I'm not too pleased about that. He was asked first while I was still in my Relief Society class. I probably would have bargained to speak at a near future date. We've been asked to speak on the Priesthood; something he just received two weeks ago. I feel like it's just a bit early to be giving a talk so soon.  But wait, there's more....
And I keep forgetting that Relief Society was asked to host the ward's first Linger Longer. My RS President asked the presidency to make a main dish that can feed a whole family. Hello crock pot meal...

I keep thinking, when will I have the time to accomplish all of this?? Oh yeah, and we've gotta do laundry too, aside from me working overtime this Saturday to prepare me for next week. Have I mentioned that Levi now works on Saturdays? I'm learning to adjust to it because I miss him terribly as I'm alone most of the day. Our adventure day has dwindled down to grocery shopping, dinner & sleep. Bummer.
I'm just venting. I just need to learn to decompress...or yell loudly into a pillow. Sorry I'm in a sour mood, my plate's a little to full at the moment. I just remembered another thing, I need to figure out my parents' insurance before we start to move them this next month. 

(But I'd bring Levi, for sure! He's cute, such a good driver and we like the same road trip snacks.)

Sunday & Father's Day.

There's so much I want to blog about but it's late and I don't want to pull out my laptop. Plus it's 12:50am on a work night....eek!
Today we were asked to speak in church. Next Sunday: What the Priesthood means in our lives.
As for the rest of our day:

I love this man! I enjoy the time I get to spend with him. 
Sorry so short, my mind is consumed with my talk. Nervous, excited, anxious and happy! Good luck to us!

Sunday: Setting Apart & Sitting Together.

Today was a very good day for us.
My sweetheart was ordained to the Priesthood. I was very fortunate to spend some time in Priesthood quorum today. I appreciate the good brethren who made me feel very welcomed. I'm not gonna lie, being the only soprano in a room full of bass and tenors, was a tiny bit intimidating but I think I sang a little bit louder with a lot more enthusiasm. I couldn't help it, it was one of my favorite hymns, Have I Done Any Good? Plus, I loved sitting next to him in Priesthood. It was nice seeing him in this element.
I appreciate the words of our good Bishop, during Levi's ordination. I am so grateful to have a home filled with the Priesthood, again. I think this will make my Dad happy, as well. The Bishop also mentioned having Family Home Evening, which makes me happy. I think this will start a good tradition for our family and our future children. 
After Levi's ordination, the Bishop asked if I was ever set apart for my Relief Society Secretary. Since I hadn't been, we pulled Levi in and we were able to be together for that. I'm glad because I was so happy to have him there with me. Two things that stood out was when the Bishop said, "You are admired by all" and then made reference to my organizational skills. I was taken back by the "admired" comment because I'm still getting to know the sisters (women) at church so how could that be? Maybe some admire different qualities about me? I don't know exactly but it made me happy because I know Heavenly Father knows me and that matters a lot to me.
I've been so blessed. I love having Levi with me. He's so good at church. Sometimes, a lot of times, I marvel at how he just "gets it"! Today's Sunday School lesson was on repentance and one of his answers on the purpose of repentance was so deep and eloquent it just made me wonder how I got so lucky to have someone who is just so dang good!
Since today is now our only day off together, I truly appreciate all the time I was able to spend with him. He's my very best friend and I love him with all my heart.

Friday, I'm in love!

*Today is Friday and I'm ready for the weekend.

*Life is good and there's really no complaints except for the adulting part of it. Dang laundry.

*I'm thankful I don't work tomorrow. I love the idea of catching up with work but man, it'll be nice to sleep in. 

* Levi is over the moon about his new job that he started this week. I love how happy he is when he gets home and all his exciting stories he shares from his day. I'm so happy he's happy. 

* I'm enjoying my newish calling as Relief Society Secretary. It's different not being in charge but that's way cool with me. I'm getting to know more of the sisters which I love. They're so kind and sweet. I taught Relief Society about 3 weeks ago and I was nervous and excited to do so! 
Good times!

I'll blog more later... Life is good!

Come, follow me.

My sweetheart was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this past Saturday on May 28. Honestly, it feels surreal and normal, if that makes any sense. It feels normal because of all the many Sundays he's attended church with me but surreal you actually be two active, covenant-making members of the church. He's the "Brother B" to my "Sister B", we're now, "Brother & Sister B"!! That trips me out in a very happy way! I love having him in church with me. I love hearing him pray.
I love the way he just "gets" stuff. I have so much more I want to say, but since it's late, I'll have to post later. 
Right now, I can't adequately express everything I'm feeling and part of me is just trying to wrap my head around this beautiful blessing. I love it!! 

Saturday, April 16, 2016


Tonight, I am so grateful for my sweetheart.  I love the way he is always so tender with me, especially when I fall ill. 
I don't know what happened this afternoon, but man, I had the worse stomach cramps. It wasn't like the usual stomach ache, there was such a bad throbbing pain. I started to go over my day and think of what I could have eaten.   Ugh, it was definitely an evening I'd rather forget.  It was rough. No one likes to see their lunch in reverse. I hate throwing up, which always makes me HOPE I don't get morning sickness.
I'm just so grateful for the tender way he takes care of me. He's just so attentive. Although I was asleep on and off for the past 5 hours, he would check on me and see if I needed anything. 
I'm grateful for the wonderful man that he is. For the past month, as we've been praying together before bed each night, I've felt a much closer bond with him. I've truly loved it. I love the way we pray for each other and express our gratitude for our blessings, most especially for the blessing of each other. He is my heart and my better 2/3rds.

Time has just been blowing on by! I can't believe I've been in my current job position for about 2.5 weeks! I friggin love it! I love the chill vibe of the department. I love that I can breathe and feel like an adult. I'm no longer treated as if I'm a teenager at my first job. I love that people are serious about getting their work done, not out of fear and resentment but because they understand that it's their responsibility. I LOVE that I can listen to music all day long, with my headphones in. Seriously, I friggin LOVE it!!! As much as I miss my friends from upstairs, I would not go back to my last position if I was even offered a raise. Nope, no thank you, zilch, zero, nada! I don't have to deal with angry debtors calling or just angry people in general. Plus, I don't feel like I drag myself out of work at the end of the day. I still feel human. I don't come home anymore venting about someone I didn't like or how someone's incompetence just killed my vibe. I enjoy my colleagues and my immediate supervisor. Everyone's upbeat and genuinely really happy to be there! I am happy!! I feel like this weight has been taken of my shoulders and I actually enjoy going to work now! Plus, with my schedule starting 30 minutes later, I miss a huge chunk of traffic! It's assume!! I'm so happy and I couldn't be any more grateful for this position!
Life is good!
(I'm pretty sure this is what I look like walking into & out of work)

How I Felt About The First Day.

I just might like working here, that is for sure!
Please excuse my full happy face, my boss took our department to Starbucks for breakfast.

And in case you were wondering what the second day looked like...
Corned beef & cabbage on rate from DZ Akins! Celebrated St. Patrick's Day & a paralegal's birthday. I'm totally ok with that!

Tuesday, March 15, 2016


Tomorrow's going to be a big day!
I start my new position!
So many people I've worked with have asked me if I'm excited.
Honestly, I'm not one of those people that LOVE change. 
I'm a creature of comfort. 
I get a lil hesitant to jump into new adventures without some sort of safety net of familiarity.  I'm glad I've got Chuy down there since he transferred to that department a year ago.  At least I'll feel like I have a friend, who actually knows how to pronounce my name.
Yep, I'll have a whole day of correcting people on how to say my name. fun.

I don't know...I'm nervous.  I'm going to miss my team and all things familiar.

Here's to moving up in the world!

Daylight Savings Monday: Training & Discussions.

Today flew by so quickly.  
At the end of today, I started to clear out more of my cube to take down to my new cube.  I'll take my last box on my way out tomorrow night.  I'll probably set up my desk so it's ready come Wednesday when I start in my new position.  
As I was cleaning stuff up, I started to clear my computer of files and folders I no longer needed.  As I did so, I came across templates and email examples my trainee will probably need in time.  I have no idea how many emails I sent to her labeled, "SAVE FOR LATER: (name of template/example)".  I was just thinking of how I just wanted to be set up for future training with the tools she would need.  I know I wouldn't be there to train her later, but I wanted her to be prepared.  I didn't want her to be blindsided later.  I wished I could be there for all of her training with future projects, projects that I am familiar with.  I suddenly had this maternal type of feeling that I didn't want her to fail and my time of training was soon coming to an end, tomorrow.
It made me wonder if that's how parents feel as their children grow up and soon leave the nest.  Do they wonder, "Have I done my best?", "Will they remember everything I taught them?", "Will they do what is most important?",  "I hope they know they can always ask for help." It almost made me sad to think I won't be there to help my trainee with all of her future questions.  I now have to trust my team mates to take care of her.  Dude, sometimes, I don't know how parents do it.  I mean, it makes me think back to when my nephew, Simi left for his mission. I know she'll be fine and in due time will learn everything she needs to, to fulfill the position.  She'll be in good hands. 
I will surely miss my team.  We've been together for the past year and I'll miss QuiQua, my one colleague that I've worked next to for the last two years.  We've been together since week one.  It'll be so different in my new department.  New faces & new names to remember.  I don't want to get too sentimental, it'll make tomorrow hard.
Last night, we had the missionaries over for dinner.  It was so nice.  They're our first real guests at our place (dinner wise).  It was nice feeling their spirit.  We went over the first discussion.  I'm not gonna lie, I got emotional while they were sharing the Joseph Smith experience of the first vision.  It just brought back so many times I was able to share that experience with those we taught out in the mission field.  It made me think of my sweet companion, Sister Cobb.  I loved my mission and all that I was able to experience. I love and miss a lot of my companions, I'd say, all but one really.  I think I do a pretty good job at keeping in touch with them.  I love them.  
I'm grateful for the challenge of reading the Book of Mormon again, with Levi.  When I don't read the Book of Mormon as often as I should, I forgot all the great stories and experiences that took place.  The elders asked me last night what I liked about the Book of Mormon, and I told them that I liked all the experiences that happened therein.  I said I liked Alma the Younger who wasn't perfect and even tried to lead people astray, but he repented and came back to be a powerful missionary.  I like that the Book of Mormon tells of Alma the Younger's conversion.  I love all the stories of Captain Moroni.  He's the best.  I can't wait to dive back into the Book of Mormon and read all these great stories and most especially when Jesus came to the Americas and blessed all the children.  The best part of the Book of Mormon, is knowing that it is all true.  I'm ready to reaffirm my testimony of it's truthfulness.

Life, in rewind. {this past week}

I finished our nephews & nieces frame. I love it! I love seeing these kids that we love so much!

I went to Hobby Lobby today, as my "do something fun on your half day (of work)" I love the light blue frame for our wedding party photo. It'll be a nice pop of color amongst the dark frames on the wall. I'm still debating if I like the "Family Rules". I feel like there are so many rules! We'll see where we're at with that, in a week.

I'm so glad Levi said to go with the light blue. It's perfect and brings out the touches of light blue in the photo. I love this photo with all our loved ones.

I brought Jonah to work with me on Friday. He was a hit! I seriously love this bag! $2 at a thrift store = AWESOMENESS!!

I seriously love having a Food Saver!! I also love being able to seal all my Mason jars oh so easily!!

This was the BEST fortune I've EVER received!! I seriously want to frame it!

I made this meme from a funny quote I found. So funny & so true!

Levi had a special photo project in which he asked me to model for him. At the end, I thought I'd snap a few photos of myself as I waited in the car for him. I wanted to surprise him when he later went thru all the pics to make selections. This was his favorite:

This was the sweet little experience I had this week:

We were at Mission Trails working on Levi's photo project. I very much enjoy Big Rock Park! 

But I enjoy this man, a million times more.

My new kitchen! I love the new shelves & kitchen table and chairs!! Our kitchen is so much more organized and bigger now. I love all the space!

This is Levi fixing my mistake. I can't stand assembling things. Reading instructions to build things make me a lil anxious & frustrated. Him, not so much.

Adios old round table & chairs.

I feel like this has been such a fast week. So much has changed in our little flat. Work has seriously flown by and soon enough I'll be starting my new position. I'm nervous, exited, anxious & sad all wrapped! Well tonight we "spring forward " for the time change and it's 1:51am and in 9 minutes it'll be 3:00am. I'm wide awake and church starts at 9:00am. Yikes!! Good night!!

8 Days.

It's 10:21pm.... Not really in the mood for a structured blog, so we'll go with random points.

-I have only worked 8 full days, this month. EIGHT!! That's insane. Due to my aunt's passing, I had 3 days off bereavement, a holiday & 4 days of due to sickness.

-So I've been off for the last 4 business days/6 days total due to Pneumonia. FRIGGIN PNEUMONIA!! I never want this damn thing again! It totally wiped me out! My lungs/ribs have never hurt so bad because of such awful coughing fits. It's been bad. 

-I go back to work tomorrow. I've never had this much time off of work before. I wish I could say I did something productive, but I think working on my health was productive enough.

-I'm still coughing quite a bit, but at least my voice is not as hoarse as Friday morning.

-I have more on my mind, but I think I'm getting sleepy.

-Last night's dinner: Homemade soup & garlic cheese rolls.... All because nothing was on tv, but Food Network was popping!

Things that bug me the waiting room.

*When this guy thinks the "if you're coughing, please use a mask" sign doesn't apply to him...and he's coughing all over the place. (That's the 3rd chair he sat on)

*Why can't medical waiting rooms ever have something educational or beneficial on their televisions? Please no talk shows or soap operas. I'm here to feel better, it wouldn't hurt to feel mentally better, too.

*When you're under the weather, but your body wants the air conditioner on, while you want to wear a sweater.

*Wanting to sleep but your lungs want to cough and cough and cough.

* Feeling like you're only getting about 10% of air through this face mask. Yet it also somehow serves as a sauna for your lower face.

*Funny how me and the kid across from me, who's also wearing a mask, hasn't coughed. But those not wearing a mask are coughing, quite a bit. 

* I'm done....and still waiting to be seen.

The Cube Life x 2!

Out of respect for my cube mate, who also went up for the same job position, I've been trying to curb my enthusiasm for my new position.  Whenever anyone's come by to talk to me about it, they usually ask if I'm excited for my new job.  The last thing I want to do to my cube mate is rub her face in it, so I really downplay my emotions about it.  But honestly...I'm pretty friggin' ecstatic!  The last lady who had the position raved about how awesome it was to work in that department.  Nan used to be on my current team, but left to fill the position back in October.  She recently got a new job at a different firm, so it opened the Money Judgment Processor position.  
I can't believe I showed up to the interview wearing dark blue jeans and my new bear shoes....but I did!  I LOVED the way I had the two interviewers laughing!  Seriously, there was a lot of awesome vibes and good laughter!  One of my favorite questions was, "As a manager, it's important to hire someone who gets along with the team, but also gets their work done.  Which would be more important to hire; a hard worker who may or may not get along with the team or someone that has a great personality that gets along with everyone but doesn't quite get the work done?"  To which I said, "Well, lucky for you two, I'm both!"  Seriously, I felt like it was such a ballsy answer, but they loved it and laughed so hard and said, "I like that answer!!".  It was awesome!  I felt terrific about the interview!
When my cube mate got back from the interview, I'm not gonna lie, I was a lil worried. We were cordial towards each other and even had dinner w/ a couple others that evening. 
When I found out I got the job, I only told one other person at work. I didn't want my cube mate to find out from someone in the office, other than HR.  
A couple days ago, I found out from a team member, that my cube mate seriously thought she aced the interview and that the job was definitely hers.  She had no doubt that she clinched the new position!  From what I was told, she was sure that with her background there was no way the job would go to me.  It was a little enlightening to hear this.  Honestly, I would have been happy either way.  Just hearing all of this made me think one thing; don't ever count me out.  
With that said, I'm so stoked to be moving to this way awesome department.  Everyone I've talked to has only said the nicest and most exciting things about this department.  Nan told me that they have food in the kitchen, a lot!  It seems like every Friday, someone is buying food for the department.  I'm a fan of free lunches!  It helps that 95% of the attorneys for the firm are in this department.  Plus, Nan told me that my new manager is way awesome and super nice! I'm way stoked!  I'm also looking forward to decorating my new & bigger cubicle. 

I can't wait! Maybe I want to buy more plants?  I don't know....but I can't wait to find out how this will all turn out!

"Urgent Care"


I've been down and out for the last 2.5 days.  This is the worst cold/sickness that I've ever had.  Seriously, I feel like all my body wants to do is cough and cough and cough.  I can't even take a deep breath without any type of irritation in my throat, which just leads to more coughing.  I HATE IT. 
I tried to go to Urgent Care today but they wouldn't see me without permission from my doctor....who of course is not in his office on a Sunday. FML. I'm so mad.  Urgent Care said that I could try seeing them without my insurance but fees start at $125.  It makes me mad because why pay for insurance when it doesn't come in handy in the moment you need it?!?!?  So friggin' mad.  My chest feels heavy and I just want to cough everything out of passageways.  I just HOPE Levi doesn't catch whatever funk it is that I have.  Plus, I'm so fatigued.  I get winded just walking around our apartment.  How the hell am I suppose to try to go to work tomorrow?!? UGH...I HATE getting sick.  Why can't people stay home from work when they're sick?!?
**TIP OF THE DAY: Please use your own sick time so others don't have to.**

My piano & "bench".

I love having a piano at home again. Sure, it's not an upright like my last one, but it totally serves its purpose. This was the kindest gift my cousin Fray could have given me; my Aunty Keala's piano. 
It makes me think that she used to practice on it before playing the organ at church, just like we both used to do for our own individual wards that shared the same chapel. I like practicing on it. It's such a nice way to unwind I the evenings, after work. 
My favorite part about it is the "piano bench". If you look close enough you'll see the corner of our marble coffee table. Since our living room is a bit small, it would be hard to pull over one of our kitchen chairs. So we both decided that we could push the coffee table up to the piano and I'd sit on that.
As funny as it sounds (and probably as you are picturing), it actually works out perfectly! I am not worried about this coffee table, at all. This thing was made to be sat upon. The marble top and legs are so thick, that there is no way this table is gonna crack or break! I love it. I seriously love the hilarity of the situation. This is just one of those things that I know Levi and I will look back on and laugh. One of those memories that we'll share with our children & grandchildren, someday.

Bad things in 3.

When I was 12 years old, I busted my knee and ended up in a cast. During the three weeks I was to wear the cast, I also ended up with my period and Chicken Pox. I remember my sister picking me up from junior high school saying that bad things always happen in threes.
Today, I woke up without a voice. I have a cold. My left eye was hurting; I now have a sty. This is also the weekend my period starts....or actually started, as in today. Along with the cramps. :(

I don't think my body likes me very much today.

New Adventure!

The week my aunt passed away, I found out there was a position opening up in our Eviction department. My mind was a little scattered the day I returned back to work, but I submitted my cover letter and resume to HR. Later that day, I was invited to interview the next day. HR told me I could still dress down since it was Friday. So I did...
I'm not gonna lie, I was a little nervous when I showed up to work the next day wearing jeans and my new bear shoes while my cubicle mate actually looked like she was going to an interview! (Which she was, also! It was a lil odd to be going up for the same job against my team member and cube mate.)
My interview was first and I've gotta say, I felt great about it! I had them laughing and seriously asking great find out questions. It felt less like an interview because our discussion/conversation led right to the next question they had for me....or somehow I'd answer the next question before it was even asked. Probably the easiest and best interview I ever had! I felt good about it!
And it paid off! I GOT THE JOB!!
Yesterday, I was emailing one of the ladies from my new department regarding a case. She later congratulated me, then sent me the following email: 
When we found out it was you….. we were all very excited.. you are such the perfect fit! When I found out that you interviewed, I kept telling my boss that you would be the best fit for this position! We all did! You’ll be fine!
Just reading that made ne even more excited!!
And my soon to be new cube mate sent me this: Super excited to be working together!! 
I've only heard the nicest and greatest things about my new department and manager. This makes me less nervous and even more excited. I'm not gonna lie, I'll probably feel a lil overwhelmed having attorneys all around me, all the time. I'm sure I'll get used to it. I'm stoked that my bigger cube has a window about 10 feet away. This makes me happy. There are so many things that make me excited for this new change. New adventures are on the horizon!
