Bountiful here we come!

So it's finally official. Darren and I found a place to live in Bountiful. We are so excited to finally live up there. No more commuting 2 hours  a day to go to work. We move in a couple weeks to our new place. We are very grateful for Trish and Keith for keeping us fed and giving us a place to sleep. They have been great and very patient with us. Darren is going to miss all the meals he has been getting. Oh well. :) I know he will eventually love those instant potatoes.

Missing Cabo

Hey y'all, this is Darren... Yes, I am missing Cabo, but who seriously wouldn't miss this (the picture below)? This is what we woke up to every day which seems like years ago. Oh well, that's life, right? You work your butt off for years for a measly 8 days in paradise? I must say though, it was worth it! The sad part about this picture was that it was taken the morning that we were leaving for home...

Life has been good lately, although not much news to talk about. Heather and I are still looking for a place in Bountiful. I have to admit, we really haven't been looking that hard, but I am feeling more and more motivated to really start looking hard. We have enjoyed staying at my parents house and we are EXTREMELY grateful to them for putting up with us. However, both Heather and I are becoming more anxious to just find our own place quick. The funny thing about this is that my personality is more like "Let's take our time to find the right place..." whereas Heather thinks more on the lines of "Just find me a place already, Darren!" I learned this early on as Heather wanted to marry after dating me only a couple months whereas I needed to take my time to think through such a hard decision. Anyways, we'll find the right place soon!

My job is going good. I have been with Sherwin-Williams now for just over two months and have enjoyed the job. I am so anxious to just dig in alredy and majorly impact my store. Unfortunately with this experience, I really need to learn patience and let knowledge come with time. I love business and analyzing why some businesses do better than others. Besides all this, the job is a really good one, and I'm definately enjoying it for now!

Like I said, there's not really much new with us except for trying to find as place to live. We'll keep you updated!

A blast from the past!

This is a picture taken from our first month of dating. I was in beauty school, so my hair was a little funky. It has blond pieces in my bangs and fringe. Darren wore this hat often around me. We are a cute couple even way back then. I love you DAR!

Starting a new chapter

The past couple weeks we have been living with Darren's parents , till we sell our old lease and get into a new apartment. Well, we sold our lease. Now we just need to find a new apartment in Bountiful. So the search goes on. The Tintle's have been easy to live with and fun to have the company. Darren is getting use to all the home cooked meals. :)

I started my new haircutting job up in Kaysville. I absolutely love it. I didn't realize how stressful Walmart was. My new job is less stressful and actually fun! I love cutting hair everyday. Darren is still learning his job at Sherwin Williams. I think it's a little overwhelming at times for him, but all in all he is enjoying learning new things that comes with it.
