Spring Fun

Hello Friends!! So, I know that it has been a super long time since I have posted. I find my life is not quite as exciting as it was when I lived in Taiwan! I have now worked at "The Window Box" floral Shop for the last two months. I have loved working with flowers again. Even though I love delivering and designing, I secretly miss being in a classroom. I have been interviewing over and over again without any luck... finding another teaching position has been so much harder then I ever dreamed it would be. However, I know things will work out and something will happen. Well, enough of that. Here are some pictures of things I have been up to the last few months :)

Heritage Park Ward Camping Trip

Arches with my great friends, Erica and Vanessa. They are amazing girls and I am so sad that Erica is going back home to Japan next week.

I have never been to a drive in movie before and guess what? They show TWO moview! I was so excited. We were quite snug in the back of the truck, but it was so stinking fun! Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS to Trae and Jaci who are now engaged.

Just waiting for the movie to start. Mike moved home for the summer and I am so thankful! I'm in a rough place right now and don't know many people. If anyone really knows me they know that I hate being by myself and want to be doing something every second of the day. I was getting really sick of driving to Salt Lake all the time to hang out with people. Mike and I have been doing lots of hikes and have a great summer list of things we want to do. Thanks Mike!
This is a wedding that my floral shop did down in Springville. It was a long day and a lot of work. Just the flowers were $24,000! Yes it was amazing, but i can't imagine spending that much money. Wow.

Jaci's Birthday
For Jaci's birthday Trae and I planned a surprise party for her. It was really fun because she had no idea and was really surprised. I love birthdays because they are just another excuse to see my amazing friends. Seriously, I am so lucky to have you guys. I couldn't ask for better friends (even though most of you are all married now). I am so thankful we still see eachother often, you guys are so important to me. Love ya!

Christy's Graduation and Chase's Eagle Award
Oh my heck... Christy is graduating from High School! That makes me feel old. Brittney and I were laughing because it is such a weird feeling. You know... writing this is making me remember how blessed I am. Not only do I have amazing friends, but such a loving and supportive family. My family is so close and I am so thankful that I have so many cousins that are my best friends. How could I be so lucky?

Jaci and I went to Addison's wedding reception... I don't think I have ever been so excited to see a wedding anouncement. Congratulations Addison! ( by the way, Jaci and I are trying to make smoothie faces.. weird, I know)
Caitlyn's Home Coming
As the usual cousin tradition, we met Caitlyn at the Airport as she flew home from Argentina. I am so excited to have her back, I have missed her!

Not having much going on with my life, I bought a ticket to Ohio one day and went out to visit Heather. Heather is living out there right now and I hadn't seen her since before I left for Taiwan. I had so much fun with her and we ate way too much food. Miss you Heather!

Babysitting my favorite family! We always have a "Princess Tea Party" every time I stay at their house. We made cake, cookies and a special drink. It was so much fun!
