The Farewell

Waaaay late in posting these! Here's some pics of that weekend. It was a fast trip for Kay and I. We drove down on Friday night and left Sunday around 3pm. Here's pictures from that weekend.

I'm sure you can all guess what happened in these next four!

Decisions Decisions

On Friday a coworker of mine got promoted from her current job (processor) to a new manager type job that has left an opening in the area. The promise of this job has been what's kept me with Wells Fargo and putting up with evil manager in Bountiful for so long. Apparently the job is mine if I want it and I'd make quite a bit more money if I stayed, but I feel like I received an answer about moving to Vegas and felt like I should go. It's frustrating that all of this has occurred because if it had happened just a few weeks earlier, I wouldn't have even applied for the job in Vegas and would be content to stay here. I guess there's no decision to be made. I'm moving still and becoming an underwriter will pay off in the long run, but it'd just be nice to not have to wait 3 or 4 years for the kind of money I could be making now.

Give Me Them Bright Lights, Long Nights

It's officially official! I got a call from a Wells Fargo recruiter yesterday offering me a job in Las Vegas! Luckily my managers Brad and Wade were awesome and recommended me for the position, otherwise I had an even smaller percentage of getting this job. I already work for Wells so I can skip most paperwork and will be moving in two weeks. TWO WEEKS! I've already started putting my furniture up for sale on craigslist and am getting calmly anxious about the whole moving thing. I've done it so many times that I've realized how sick I am of moving entire households so I'm giving away/selling things that I absolutely don't want/need. Anyone is welcome to come over and just pick something up and ask if they can have it-I'll probably say yes!

The hardest part is leaving all the friends that I've made. I had to start from scratch when I came here and felt so relieved when Jenny talked to me and decided to let me be her friend. For the first time I feel so involved in my ward and have a group of friends that I don't have to question what they really think about me and I know we'll still be friends even after I throw a volleyball at them because my team is losing and they're winning. (true story, I'm a brat when I lose.) They've all helped me come out of my shell since moving here.
Anyways, I'm excited for this new job and the move and the professional progression I've been able to make.

Eat your heart out Bakerella!

For those of you who know who Bakerella is, know how awesome she is! I was making normal, boring cupcakes for Tim's (coworker) bday and saw this idea on the back of a cake mix box. How cute are they!?! The best part was frosting them. I melted down a tub of frosting, dipped the bottoms in, let it sit and then added a little more and fluffed them up a bit. I'm not one to toot my own horn (yes I am) but I can't wait to show these off tomorrow!

Here, there and everywhere!

I don't like blogs without pictures. Half the time, if you don't have a picture, I won't read the entry. With my feelings as such, I don't like blogging without adding pictures of my own. This one won't have any though.
I've been to AZ 3 times in a month! I went for a week vacation, then turned around the very next weekend and went for Kenny and Stuart's farewell and THEN came a third time for a job interview.
There's not much else new so I'll post pictures of randoms later.
