Our New Place!!

Carson and I have been crazy busy the last 2 weeks. We became apartment managers, so we packed up all our stuff and started moving. On top of that we had to clean a few apartment including our own, made a quick trip to Moab where we hiked to some really cool indian ruins, came back home, where Carson had finals, and I had graduation. Thru all of this we had a few interesting moments...
  • Carson dumpster diving because I threw away his newspaper
  • Finding a statue of Christ at DI for $2.00
  • Finding an entertainment center at DI for $25.00
  • Moving our couches about a million times
  • Losing a bocce ball in the creek and walking in freezing cold water to find it
  • Dallen finding the bocce ball!!!!!
  • Losing another bocce ball
  • Turning my hands purple from washing marked quarters
  • Trying to cook plantains for the first time
  • Totally failing at cooking plantains
  • Found out that there is no shortcut from Oak City
  • And found out which dryer does not work in our laundry room
So you see we have been very busy, but now we are all moved in and loving our new place. Even though it is not very big, it is twice the size of any other place that we have lived yet so it feels like a mansion.

Our Bedroom

Kitchen with green counter tops
(Carson does not like them, but I don't think they are that bad)

Living room

Bathroom (more green counter tops)

And my beautiful new clock that was a present from my siblings for my graduation in its new home (thanks guys). My walls are a little bare, but I am working on that.

And the totally unrelated apple pie that I made because we had tons of apples

(Monticello Utah Temple)

Carson and I were really struggling with what we should do this summer. We were not sure we would be able to find jobs here, but we weren't sure if moving to Moab was the right thing either. We weighed a few options, and thought we had found what we should do. We went to the temple one afternoon to be sure we had the right answer. As we sat in the temple together, neither of us felt that what we had decided was right. We were no closer to knowing what we should do, but we knew the Lord was mindful of us, and we left feeling much more peace then when we had gone in. On our way home Carson stopped at a random gas station to grab a paper to read that night at work. In it he found an employment ad for apartment managers. We applied as soon as we could, and at the interview we were hired right on the spot. We finally knew what we should do this summer. It is so great to have reassurance that the Lord is watching out for us, and to have a temple so close that we can go to when we need help.

I did it!!! I graduated. Thanks to everyone who came to share the special day with me!!!

The Business Blues Band.
(the dean and 3 professors, so cool)

I have to say after all this hard work the alumni association made it worth all the effort by giving each graduate one giant.....

chocolate ice cream cone!!!!!
(Carson also took me out for ice cream as my graduation gift so the 4 years of lectures, homework, papers, and tests were totally worth it)

Carson's New Toy!!

Carson is spoiled rotten!! Look what he got!!
(he got a really good deal though, and I guess he deserves it)
