A whole lot of nothing and an aching heart...

So not much has been going on with us lately. I have been sick with something but we don't know what it is. But no worries I will get over it sooner or later. Jonah was sweet enough to buy me a wedding band to go with my engagement ring. He is so sweet. I get it tomorrow. The rings are getting welded together. I will put a picture up when I can. It is going to be so beautiful. We have been having a lot of fun with our friends Olivia and Jared. They are really cool people. They were over by our apartment the other day and decided to stop by with brownies and a movie! We had a lot of fun that night. They are going on the camping trip with us and I am so excited. I love listening to Olivia's stories. She is the cutest girl I have met....just don't make her mad or she will " punch yo face" Lol Sorry that is part of one of her stories. Very funny. So like the title says, a whole lot of nothing....ya sorry we are so boring. We don't really do much when I am not feeling good. But we are going down to St George tomorrow and I will have something to post when we get back. I am so happy to be going down there. I miss my family so much. I have been getting so home sick. And I have been having nightmares about my dad so I just really want to get down there and be with my family.... You never know what you have until its gone. I know that my family is not gone, but they are not at the tip pf my fingers anymore. They are four hours away and that makes things really hard for me. I feel like I miss out on so much and I wish so badly that I could be there. But I want them to know that I love them and that I always miss them. My brother and his wife. My sisters. My nieces and nephews. My grand parents and my mom and dad.... I wish that I could be in two places at once. But you got to do what you got to do. I am so glad to have my husband with me though. I have some part of my family with me and that helps ease the home sickness a little. So I hope that this trip will help me get through the next while until I can see my family again.

Our Big Break

So we have good news! Jonah got the job with Comcast!! We are so excited!They were rated the #1 employer in the nation last year.We are so excited that he got the job. He had to go through a four hour interview process, and he wowed them enough to get the job. He will be and installer for them. The benefits are unbelievable. He will get his own company truck, full medical, dental, and vision, 401K, tuition reimbursement, 28 paid vacation days a year, paid sick leave, paid holidays, discounts on Macintosh and Dell products,free cable and internet, and a TVO for only five bucks a month! There are so many more! I can't remember them all but I was shocked when I heard all of them. He starts November 3rd and has to do 3 months of training. After that he will get a dollar raise and get going on his own. There is so much room for advancement with this company to. So he is going to be sticking with this job for a while. It is to good not to keep. And if he wants to he will be able to move up and into different positions that pay more. But what he will be getting paid now is more than enough for the two of us. So we are hoping to save as much money as we can so that we will be able to buy a home or a condo in the next few years. Also with the tuition reimbursement, Jonah will be starting school in the fall. I am planning aon starting with him so that we can do it together. So we are excited that this wonderful opportunity presented itself to us. We are so blessed and we are so grateful that the Lord is watching over us. He has truly been listening to our prayers and finally answered them. We have learned so much from this alone. Paying your tithing, attending the temple and church and praying to your Father in Heaven can only bring you more joy and more blessings. We are so happy with the way things are going for us right now.

Busy Bee's

Well Jonah and I have been keeping ourselves busy, and its only going to get crazier. We will be heading down to St. George on the 24th to visit family and friends, and to see Thriller. We are very excited. Especially me. I have been getting very home sick so I will be really glad to see my family and friends. Then on the 7th of November, we are going camping!! Yes I know it is going to be cold, but we have a big group that is all going together and it is going to be so much fun. I really can't wait. Then the following weekend, we will be going to Vegas for a family trip! I am really excited. I just found out that we will be able to go! YAY!! Anyways, then we will be going to St George for Thanksgiving to spend it with my family. So we don't have many free weekends left for the rest of the year. Lol. So I just thought that I would keep you updated on what we have going on. If you want to reserve us for a weekend please let me know. Lol.

A day at the Park and a whining dog

We had a very fun time at the park for FHE. We took the camera and had at it. Lol. These are the most up to date photos of the newly wed family....

In other news. Reign has been getting on our last nerve. He has been whining all night long for the past few nights. Yesterday, Jonah and I came home from his parents house, and Reign was in the living room. We were shocked because we put him in his cage before we left. So we thought we would test it out again. We went for a short walk. Before we left we put him in his cage. When we came back he was standing in the kitchen. Somehow he got out of his cage. We think that he paws at the latch and then crawls through. Anyways, so last night we had had it up to our ears with his whining. So we let him out of his cage and let him sleep in the kitchen. We did not want to loose more sleep over a whining dog. As far as we can tell he did ok. He was still in the kitchen when I got up this morning. And he stopped whining so it worked out pretty good for us. So we will try it again and see how he does. Everything else is all and well with the newly weds!
