Uncovered Blessings

Many Adventure's at RME

You know I look back on my life sometimes and I see things that have truly shaped who I am today both good and bad. I try not to get to caught up in some of my dumb choices and focus on the positive. I have worked at RME now for 7 years and it has truly been a great blessing in my life. These past 7 years have been a very difficult time in my personal live. I have struggled with the church and knowing exactly who I am and where I fit in. I have been learning to live with some disappointments that I never expected to live with. But through all these times I have had a truly great place go to. Most of us who have to work tend to spend a lot of time there whether by choice or by need. I have 2 wonderful active members of the church as my bosses. They both show in everyday actions there love and desire to serve the Lord and have truly been a great example to me. Another, one of the things that I am truly grateful for is the different co-workers that I have had. I have watched many come and go and many of them have been great examples to me in my life.(and still are) They haven't judged me but have listened and been supportive through there actions and friendship. They have been my support and connection to the church these last few years as I have made a personal choice to keep my distance. They have helped me over come bitterness and learn to look once again to the Savior, the atonement and the gospel for answers. When my faith has been truly shaken they that helped me see that our Heavenly Father is looking out for me and loves me as an individual. This has ended up a lot more personal that I have first intended but felt that I needed to express how thankful I am for such a great blessing in my life and the many wonderful friends that I have around me.

Me, Jenny and Christy

Jenny one of these amazing people that I have been talking about has moved on to a new adventure in her life. Most of the others that have left have stayed close by and I have been able to see them from time to time. I wanted to say good luck to her and Chris on their move to California for dental school. Jenny you are a wonderful and true friend and I feel blessed to have had you around these last few years. Thank you for all you have done for me and don't for get to call me when you are in town so that we can meet up for a strawberry cupcake at sprinkles!!!!

P.S. Good luck at USC (Go UofA)

New Puppy

Some of you may or may not know that I have been debating for about 2 years if I should get a dog. I have gone back and forth and as you know that when you throw things out there everyone has an opinion about what you should and shouldn't do. Which is good because I think that I was well prepared for my new adventure. Well when I went to Texas to visit Heather I would get so excited when we would get back to her house to see the dogs. I was always getting in trouble by Heather because I would get them all worked up. Well Mom Mac kept telling me that I should get a puppy. In fact when she called to say bye to me I miss her call because I was already on the plane. Here I was sitting waiting to deplane and I turned my phone on. I was a little depressed because I had had such a great trip and I love Heather family so much. I truly made my day when I got her message. The last thing she said was that I should get a puppy. I started looking in the paper and found the cutest Shih tuz puppies ever. So one day after work Leyla and I went to go take a look and here is what I found when I got there...
Who could say no to such a cute little face. The girls at my work (and there husbands) helped me name her and we came up with Macie Mae. It has been a great change for me. Even my boss who I could tell was not to keen on the idea now tells me it was the best decision I made. Thanks Leyla for helping me pick her out and a big thanks to Heather and Mom Mac for finally talking me into it.


In June I went to see Heather in Texas. We had a great time and before I left started planning my next trip out to visit. I am going during football season so that I can see what all of the fuss is all about...

Update at last...

I haven't updated in a while and it seems the longer I put it off then the more things happen and then I never want to update. So as I remember things in the next few days I am going to post them so in other words they are going to me out of order.

In April I did the Pat Tillman run with member of my work. We had a great time and I did horrible but I really felt like I did something great!

In June the girls at my work organized a recipe night. It was a lot of fun. We are brought something to share and 10 recipes to exchange which ment we all went home with 120 new recipes. It was a great way to get new ideas for things to cook which I think is by far harder then actually cooking.
