Dreams DO come true!

I don't know if you have heard but....

I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and its my dream job and im so excited!!!! When I moved to Utah, aside from school, my motive was to get a job at a scrapbook vendor. I had a job that I was looking into but it ended up going out of business. So lately I've been jobless and struggling to find one. FINALLY the other day i was on the provo craft website ( check it out! and I saw that they were hiring for a customer service/sales support position at their corporate offices! I quickly applied and took my resume to make a long story short, I got called in for an interview the next day and got the job!!! As I was being interviewed by the supervisor she stopped and said "you know, I would love to have you on my team, but I think there is another area you would be great in." So she refered me to another area and I ended up getting interviewed there too! SO i start monday and I will be trained in both areas...i have my own office and everything!!! wooo i finally have a good job! this is what ive been waiting for since.....forever!!!!!!

wish me luck!

It's Been a WHiLE

Sorry I'm an awful blogger but what can ya do! So I feel like I had a really great day today and I wanted to write about it...not only for your sakes, but I want to be able to look back on this day and feel happy.
So church here is a hard thing for me. I don't really know anyone in the ward and the roomate that I'm the closest too doesn't really go to church all that often. So its been a struggle. So today I decided to change my outlook a bit. I decided that I was going to go to church with the goal and excitement to meet new people...and thats EXACTLY what I did. There is this girl named Julia that spoke one of my first weeks there and I have wanted to be her friend ever since. So, today I walked right up to her tell her I loved her testimony and that I wanted to be her friend. From there I made friends with her friends Mary and Adam who are both awesome. Then I decided to stay and join the ward choir where I met a boy named Josh who invited me over to his house for scripture study. Then I came home from church where I met two (very cute) canadian boys in the parking lot, Ben and Jay. Then from there I went to ward prayer where I met SEVERAL people and was told I have beautiful eyes (HA they arent so squinty after all) Then I went from there to Josh's where I met Chase, Steven, Natalie, Sara, and Jessica. So whats that...11+ in one day!

It has AMAZED me what can happen when you wake up with the intent to accomplish something in the morning. I prayed that I would be brought into people's lives and that I would feel at home here and based on today, its looking pretty great!

I encourage you all to wake up tomorrow( or whenever you read this) and set a goal for yourself that day. Put yourself out there and don't let anything stop you. Keep a prayer in your heart and you will be amazed at what you accomplish!

Love you all!
