Back in Utah

So it's back to life as usual. Ben and I made it back to Utah with one less cat and one speeding ticket. We stopped in Ohio on our trip back so Ben could see where I grew up. As we went to leave my mom's friend's house my skittish cat Beatty made a break for it and jumped out of the car. We tried to chase him back toward the car but he bolted for the woods and we haven't seen him since. We looked for him the entire day and put out cat food, his litterbox, anything that might smell familiar but to no avail. My mom's friend said she'll call if anyone sees him, but so far no luck. I miss my kitty cat.
In other news: Ben started school yesterday and I started my new job as a administrative assistant to a Financial Representative at an Insurance and Investment Firm. I wasn't aware you had to get fingerprinting down to work in a securities industry. The policeman who did my fingerprinting seemed confused about my cheerfulness with the whole process, for me it was a novelty. I'm so excited to have a job again, even if I'm terrified about how much I have to learn. I was bored out of my mind in August because where I was working had no jobs for me the entire month so I sat at home and cleaned, not exactly my ideal way to spend time. Sorry for the short post I'll try update soon.

Twilight

So I'm obsessed with the Twilight series and a friend of mine had it as a theme on her blog so I couldn't resist. Also if you're as excited about the Twilight movie that comes out in December you've probably seen all the teasers and trailers. I got a kick out of this awesome spoof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dompotjTeIA

Family Fun with the Clan

My return journey to Utah is now less than a week away and the goodbyes to family and friends on the east coast has already commenced. Last night Ben's Family had their barbeque complete with Hamburgers, Hot dogs, olives and cream cheese, humpty-dumpty bbq chips, blueberry upside-down cake, and a friendly Wii competition. I'm still stuffed and exhausted. We began with Mario kart for the Wii in which Ben defended his title with Princess Peach as his racer. Next we moved on to Wii Bowling to see what the women could do. Joy won the first game and the second winner was...watch the clip and see.

After an enjoyable evening of screaming and good food Ben and I returned home exhausted but happy.

In other news I'm in the process of working on a free-lance article for Ancestry Magazine where I completed an internship earlier this year. Also I'm interviewing for a client services position with a Financial Services Company where my friend Jackie also works. I've had two intense interveiws and I have a third upon my return to Utah. I also now have a place to live when I arrive in Utah as the new house in Lehi is done and Jackie and Eric started moving in yesterday.

Last week Ben and I had the opportunity to go to a Too Late the Hero show (our Friend's Band) and then this past weekend Ben and I hung out with Jared (the lead singer of Too Late the Hero) and his girlfriend in Old Orchard Beach. For your viewing pleasure I'll show you what Ben and Jared did for fun:

And also to show you how slow and kind of boring my life was this week, I got all excited about Friday dinner. We go out to dinner every Friday with my Dad (and granddad if we can get him to come), so I curled my hair see...


I hope your life is more exciting than mine. Have an awesome day!
