Creepy Crawly Halloween

Happy Halloween Everyone!!! I seriously love this holiday! Did you know today is Nevada Day and so everyone in Nevada has this day off?! Freakin lucky ducks!

Shane and I aren't necessarily celebrating actual Halloween today. Why you ask? Well because we had an early celebration last weekend in VEGAS! It was so much fun! My most wonderful best friend Miki and her cute husband Jared came down with us.

Shane and I go to Vegas around this time every year for the NHRA drag races. He loves them for the actual racing. I love them for the people about rednecks.

So when we discovered that the drags fell on the weekend before Halloween we decided it would be a brilliant idea to invite Miki and Jared! And a brilliant idea it was! The drags weren't until Sunday so we went out on Saturday in our awesome costumes...Miki and I were Indians and our sexy men were Cowboys! Miki and Jared had never been to Fremont Street so Shane and I decided that would be the best place to go. It was so much fun! We saw just about everything...literally.

Here's Shane and me in our Costumes!
Haha I think I miiiiight be part Indian? eh??

Aren't we sexy?!
I am so glad I got to have some girl time with Miki. It is hard living far away from your best friend. We had lots of catching up to do and I am so happy her and Jared decided to come with us! Shane and Jared get along really well which makes it a lot of fun for the four of us to go out. I can't wait to do this again!!

Viva Vegas! On Fremont Street
Shane and I at the Drags!
There was a miniature golf course by our hotel that was all KISS themed! Shane was in heaven and had to take pictures!

That's Right...This JUST Happened!


So for those of you who don't talk to me everyday...which is about everyone except Shane...and my Mom... I was given permission to apply internally for a Banker position at my current lovely job, Wells Fargo.
Now let me clarify a few things first.
NO. I am not a banker already.
I am a teller.
Yes. There is a difference. 
A Teller: 
processes your transactions like deposits, withdrawals, payments, etc. etc. 
A Banker:
sets up your accounts, does loans, helps you with most of your questions on your accounts and much more.

Now that we are all on the same page...this was a preeetty big deal to me! I jumped on that opportunity like it was a brand new trampoline! I was so pumped. That's not all though. I interviewed in a group interview for this position on Friday. I was a nervous wreck people. A NERVOUS WRECK! I was shaking and in order to calm down...I sang the whole way to my interview. No, not to the radio. I made up my very own song about how I was gonna kill it at this group interview and how I am a bad ass. Yes, I am basically the next Rihanna. No big deal. So I ended...and I sat and wondered all weekend! Untill...
I got back to work from taking my lunch and there was my boss holding her office phone implying that it was for me. (The manager I had interviewed with on Friday was on the other end of that line) I walked into her office and she told me to shut the door. I couldn't help but think to myself, "Holy Shit...I really hope I got this job...or else this is going to be SO embarrassing." Well turns out... I got the job! I was so freaking excited! It took everything for me not to scream! It is soooo bitter sweet! 

You see, this position is at a different branch here in Cedar. I love the people i work with right now. They are all so wonderful and I am going to be really sad to leave them. But, I am so dang excited that I am moving up in my career! This is the best feeling ever! I never thought I would be where I am right now. I am loving life so much and seriously positive thinking is a huge factor in all of this happiness.  Seriously! Always find the positive in a helps so much!

This was my "I can't believe it" face!

Can I tell you all a not so secret?? I am kinda most excited that I get to wear heels again!!!

Done Being a Slacker...


It's been awhile eh? I apologize for my lack of blogging skills lately! I have been slacking in a lot of areas actually. One mainly being the G word....ya. GYM. Pathetic. I didn't go once last week! Not ONCE. 

So I have decided to start a money jar. You know how some people do a swear jar? Mine is a not working out jar. I will start every week with seven dollars, if I work out I put a dollar in the worked out jar and if I don't work out I put it in the "I'm a fat lazy ass" jar. At the end of the week I take the money in the "I'm a fat slacker" jar and have to give it to someone or something I don't want to. The money in the "You're a sexy beast for working out" jar can be saved for new clothes or spent however I would like. 

I am really excited to try this out! I need to get my butt into gear! With all the holidays coming up I need to find some self discipline! 

What do you guys do to motivate yourselves to get up and hit the gym??

Dear Boys...That Call Themselves Men....

Dear Life,
How are you so amazing?! I am really loving you right now. Keep up the good work.

Dear Boys..That Call Themselves Men...
Just so you know, when you whistle at a girl...she isn't going to be like, "Oh my God. He juuuust whistled at me!!! He is totally the one! We should date." Sorry to be the one to break it to you but you are interpreted as a creeper not a gentleman. 

Dear People Who Put Flyers on My Car,
I know this is a big surprise...buuut no one reads them. If I don't pull them out from under my poor violated windshield wipers I usually make a game out of trying to get them out from under them while driving home. So thank you for the entertainment but I'd rather you stop killing poor trees for no reason. 

Dear Wells Fargo,
I love my job. I love working for you. I love everything you have done for my life! Thank you!

Dear Boyfriend, 
Even though you mixed up dates and are now going to Detroit instead of to Thriller with me, I still love you. You are wonderful and I am loving our life right now. Your crazyness makes me laugh really hard and I love when we act like idiots together. You are my everything and I am so blessed to be your girlfriend.
