Welcome 2011.....7 months later...Geeez

Good heavens so I am NO good whatsoever at keeping up with the blog world...So here's a little catch up on our lives...Derick and I have been doing nothing but work work work.. I have been at Kohl's for almost 3 years now and love it. It is a great company to work for and I am happy.. Derick has had a recent change in his career.. He has decided to go back to school and get a degree and work as an insurance agent on the side. He took the test and passed his first time around... WAY TO GO!! So sad to sell the pawn shop but we know that it is the right decision for us in our lives right now. We are coming up on our 2 year anniversary this weekend so we are eager and excited to start to enter our baby making years...LOL Don't know how soon that will happen since Derick has so lovingly challenged me (  I lost a bet bowling) to save $6500 and then we can start having kids. We shall see how that goes but I am saving as I go so cross your fingers that I can do it sooner then later. We are smart in saving money so we will have kids when the time is right or when I get my money so any donations will gladly be accepted... ha ha Well we welcomed 2011 with open arms and have been looking into buying a home..we have looked and found some good places.. I just get super stressed and don't have the patience necessary to go and house hunt. We have found a townhouse that we love but are not too set on it yet. We shall see what happens but we are excited for our future with all these changes coming ahead... Lots of good things and new memories to create!! Here are some of the latest pictures I have gotten..ENJOY!

Expeliamous...Derick and I at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1..We love us some Harry Potter... Pretty much obsessed and counting down the days till Part 2 is here.

My boss, me and my Shaina.. love these girls.

Silly time out of work.

We have a bulk of woman who work at our Kohl's.. Great baby showers..

So this past weekend I attended the Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork... I decided to invite my sister Krista again and my brother Bryce. He has never gone so I figured it would be fun for him to see the crazy things we do here. I have been to the festival of colors for the past 4 years and I love it!! We had a great time and enjoyed throwing paint at each other. Good times!!

The Utah siblings..

Bryce and Krista

We had so much fun together. I am so happy they live so close so we can hang out whenever we aren't all working. Best day ever!

Right after the countdown... We got plastered.

Jumping for joy...
