Finally after 4 months of fasting and praying we have jobs! We are apartment managers in Provo. Eric is the maintenance man and I will be handling all of the office duties. I have never been an apartment manager before so I am a little nervous about it. There is a ton to remember and I feel like I am never going to get it but I think all jobs are like that at first. We won't actually be moving in until the first of May which is a bummer but it's because the managers want to make sure we are trained well enough to handle the responsibilities on our own. Even though it's going to suck driving back and forth until we are moved in, I am thankful because there is a ton of important information to retain. I am so excited that our long efforts of looking for a job have finally come to a close! We are both so excited for this job and are ready for the challenge!

February Events

This past month has been busy! My brother in law Dave was baptized this last Saturday and it was such an amazing experience. It was so touching to see how much he felt the spirit that day and to see how much the gospel has already changed his life. He is a great dad and a wonderful husband! I am so happy he is a part of our family. 

The next event in February was Nicole's birthday. The day started out with Nicole waking up to an awesome pirate themed decorated kitchen followed by Jamie and Nicole getting their toes done while Jessica and I waited. It always is so much fun when we can all get together. I love it. Then the family went to Olive Garden for Nicole's birthday dinner! After dinner we went back to Jessica's house to open presents and eat cherry cheesecake. Eric and I gave Nicole the best card ever(we always give the funny inappropriate cards) and she ended up getting the stereo and speakers for her car she had wanted. I can't believe she is 20. It feels like yesterday we were driving around Roseville with all our windows down blasting Yellowcard. Even though I am married she is one of my best friends and I couldn't imagine my life without her. She is such an amazing example to me and sometimes I feel like the younger sister. She is one of the bravest people I know, sometimes a little too brave (nickelcade!! haha) love you kolipoki! 

The next exciting event in February was Jamie's birthday!! The day started out with Dave taking Jamie out to breakfast. He also bought her red roses which was sweet. Then for dinner we had enchiladas because that's what Jamie wanted. Jessica drove up and it was fun to watch Jamie open her presents! She got everything she wanted and then we ate yummy yummy chocolate cake! It was such a fun day spent with family. I love Jamie so much and I am so proud to call her my older sister. She has taught me so much about life and I admire her so much. She is also one of my best friends and is one of the strongest people I know. We have been through a lot but it has only made me respect and understand her more. She is such a strength to me. Love you me me! 

The next event on the list is this stinkin cute boys birthday. He will be 2 on the 25th and I love my little man so much. Even though he's Jamie's I call him my man! I can't help but love this little boy. He is so funny and brings so much laughter in to the house! Time is flying by and I can't believe he is going to be 2. I am so blessed to have this little man in my life! I love you Jaden!

Okay, so I am finally on here.  I'm writing to brag about my awesome sushi skills.  Yes you heard right, I made sushi and I did it with some serious skill!  Basically, I love sushi and ever since I went to my friend Chris's house where I had homemade sushi, I have wanted to do it myself!!!!!!!  I went to the local grocery store and got all of my supplies.  I was able to do this because I am unemployed and thus have lots of time on my hands, and because Chelsea was in bed all day not feeling well.  Anyway, after getting the supplies home and watching hours of sushi preparing videos online I made my first roll.  It was only a California roll, but it was good.  After that, I upgraded to some salmon rolls and had a blast mixing and experimenting.  So yeah, I am now a sushi master!
