happy mothers day to all mothers and mothers to be!

Is this not a great sight to behold? Utah is earning major bonus points for me now that it has springy weather.

Highlights of our hike in the aptly named Green River and in/around Arches:

Beau posing for the newest Izusu Trooper ad.

Finding a dead, headless rabbit.


Contemplating life whilst overlooking a scene that reminds me of Land Before Time. Seriously, this was the best view I'd ever seen. Photos (at least with my point-and-shoot camera) cannot convey how green and bright this canyon is, especially considering we were in the middle of the desert!

Ice cream and sunburn: the beginnings of a fantastic summer.

And for some other really exciting news.....

After just one week of job hunting, I have landed my first grown-up job! I start tomorrow at Utah Career College as an admission representative.

They offer courses for nursing, vet tech, pharmacy tech, criminal justice, and lots more. I will be contacting high school kids who are interested in enrolling. That's kind of all I know now, but after 3 weeks of training I should be a little more knowledgeable about what I'm doing. The campus is in West Jordan, and Beau also works in West Jordan, so it looks like we'll be thinking about moving a little further north. Alyse- too bad you guys just left!

So, think I'll be able to handle being stuck in an office 9-5? Good thing there's a Gold's right next door...


  1. congrats on the job! Have a good first day!

  2. I have never thought you looked like mom until now. In that "cacti" picture, I still can't decide if it's mom or you.

  3. congrats on the job - I'm so proud of you. I can't believe how awesome that canyon shot is - gotta love utah (snow, rain, sun, clouds - there is so much to explore, keep it up)
