First day on the job!

Well today was my fist day at work! It was mostly just this is this and that is that, oh and the whole this is how we talk to our customers. It was rather amusing but I swear I came home smelling like a fruit basket or something. Today was spent mostly in the beauty section. The make up, perfume, and lotions. Naturally they had us sampling the products. As a result I came in smelling like 3 different lotions, 4 perfumes and had a total new look then when I left. 
Amusing actually. I work tomorrow as well but I am working in the bra section. I am only hoping that I don't make a total disaster of it. I mean it looks way complicated. I was a few minutes early today and so they had me hop into the bra section and shadow the girl that was in there looks way confusing! But hey I guess that is what I am there for to learn! One day at a time doing one thing at a time until I finally get it. When that day comes I think I might have a heart attack. There is just so much to learn and so much to know how to do and such.....

Craziness of me!

Well I start work on Wednesday! I am really excited, a bit relieved to tell you the truth! I was starting to stress out, because they told me that I got the job but hadn't told me when I started. Stressful! 
Oh I hooked up Diana on a blind date! Ha ha. She tries to pretend she is indifferent but you can tell she is excited. She is doing well transitioning to the big city. She is getting alone with the other singles in our ward. Then again they all thought she was the older of the two of us and they didn't think we were sisters. Hum. I mean we saw one of my friends that had never meet Diana before and he could tell that we were sisters. I swear something is up with the singles in the ward, maybe they are all crazy. What do you think?
So for Easter we went to one of the singles' houses and they had a pot luck. It was nice to meet more people but it was awkward. I had forgotten how a lot of singles have clicks, I mean we all do people that you are comfortable around. It just makes new people feel awkward and out of place. That was totally me last night. We were both so tired after that we went to bed early... bad idea! We both woke up and couldn't get back to sleep until around midnight. Ahh the pain! Okay so not so much!
Today Diana continued the job hunt. I thought it would be nice to go running, why not right. Wow I am so soar! I over did it. But it was not just the run I also walked around the mall with Diana for quiet a bit and then Diana, my friend Jeff and I went on a hike. Between everything.... oh plus volleyball with the singles.... Not doing that every day!
The hike was beautiful though! I didn't think you could find a place that felt like you were in the mountains of Montana while only being a mile or so away from the city. It was nice.
Volleyball was great! Fun like always, not as bruised up as I was last week which is good.

Happy Easter!

I thought I would take a moment and tell everyone a Happy Easter. It amazes me how much love the savior must have had for us. If we realize the history behind Easter. It is not about the chocolates, the eggs, or the bunny but it is centered in the atonement of Christ and the Resurrection. Jesus Christ suffered and died for US! Jeffery R. Holland says it perfectly when talking about the Garden of Gethsemane "To the thoughtful follower of Christ it is an amount of surpassing wounder that the voluntary and merciful sacrifice of a single being could satisfy the infinite and eternal demands of justice, atone for every human misdeed, bear every mortal infirmity, feel every personal heart ache, sorrow and loss. But I testify that is exactly what Christ did for every one of us. I bear witness that the atonement is the compassionate foundation and central fact in God's eternal plan for our salvation and our happiness. Is it any wonder that we walk quietly and reverently hear? Is it any wonder that we make sacred convents because of the love that was demonstrated hear? Is it any wonder that Christ the greatest of all partook of the bitter cup and did not shrink hear? That we might not suffer, if we would repent and come unto him." With the reality of Christ atonement and the purpose behind our celebration we all need to take a moment from our party, our egg hunts, our song singing and thank heavenly Father for the atonement of his son Jesus Christ!

Well everyone I am in Utah alive and well. This last week has been spent finding a job. Happy to say that I am now working at Victoria Secret. Ironically enough. I love the tender mercies that Heavenly father sends us, because honestly I had no intention of even applying there but I kept having the prompting to apply, and apply now. Well I applied and 2 hours later had a job interview. They interviewed 3 of us at the same time, and honestly I was the oldest and most qualified but I doubted that I would get the position. But I did. I was amazed!
Well Diana and I went to our new wards singles FHE and loved it! They actually have FHE lessons like we are suppose to! Then after the lesson we went to the stake center and played volleyball for a few hours. It was a blast! I got some huge bruises but it was worth it. There were a lot of singles there but once again I fear I am the oldest one there. But even though that may be true I felt completely at peace. I know I am were the Lord needs me to be!
Yesterday Nichole, Peter and the girls (my 3 nieces) were in Salt lake and so we spent the day with them. We went and toured the conference center because they wanted to see were President Monson spoke from during General conference. They were so excited. At lunch time they had fun coloring Aunt Mariah and Aunt Diana's rug with peanut butter and jelly, but it all came out so no worries. Oh the joys of children!
Well best of luck!
