It's been awhile....

I apologize, I really don't have much of an excuse as to why I haven't blogged in almost 4 months. Other than the fact that I am just lazy, and we haven't done anything super exciting the last couple of months. But just to give an update on what has been happening in the life of the Jones family.

Lets see, in January we went to Sundance with Nick's family. It was a lot of fun, it was my first time. We saw Tommy Lee Jones, and to be honest he wasn't all that nice, but I was able to get a picture of him. He is a whole lot shorter in person.

That was all we did in January, well at least that I can remember. February was a busy month for us. The first of the month Nick had surgery on his leg, they were able to go in and fix what was wrong. His knee still gives him trouble every once in a while, but we are glad that we got it done. Now if we can just get the rest of the hospital bills paid. The following week after his surgery I quit my job at First American, which turned out to be a blessing! And then one of my good friends got married, aren't they cute?

After their wedding it was Valentine's Day, and we didn't do anything to exciting. I got tickets for Nick for the Paul Cardall Celebration of Life concert. It was absolutely amazing! We sat on the front row and I loved every single minute of it! These are the beautiful roses that Nick gave me!

In March all I can really remember doing is going shooting for the first time. I absolutely loved it! It was so much fun! We packed us a lunch and were gone for the day, and it was wonderful!
It was also my wonderful little brother's 16th birthday. It was a lot of fun! We went to Tucano's Brazilian Grill. We also went to a lot of Matthew's basketball games. I love my little brother! He is truly one of my best friends! He is one of my heroes! Sorry, I don't have any pictures from that day, but it was sure a fun day of celebration!
Let's see, that now brings me to April. We didn't do a whole lot the first of the month, well we did do a lot of babysitting, we had Tyson and Nichole sleepover on seperate weekends. That was fun, but, wow, they have a lot of energy! But I still love them. I also had a lot of job interviews but none of them worked out. So, I went to the Church employment services and they helped me get set up on the new beta system. Which is totally awesome! So one morning I was looking through the jobs and I found one that sounded really interesting and so I gave it a try. I called them at the beginning of the week, and I didn't get a call back until Friday afternoon. They asked me to come in on Monday afternoon for an interview. So all weekend long I was very anxious and quite nervous. Monday, I went for the interview and it lasted about 10 minutes, they told me that they would contact me no later than Thursday if they had any information. And after having so many job interviews and having them tell me that they would get back to me and never following through, I was like okay, whatever. So all week long I kept hoping that they would call, Thursday afternoon came around and they still hadn't called. So my mom said that I should call them and see if there was any information. This is what they said when I called, "Oh I was supposed to call you today, can you come back in for a second interview?" I was shocked! I was so excited! So I hurried and got ready and went in for my second interview. While I was meeting with them, one of the men that was in the room, he was like, "Just offer her the job already!" So needless to say, I am now working part time at McDougal Funeral Home. I absolutely love it! I love all the people that I work with! They are wonderful! My job entails of me calling the families after there is a funeral and setting up appointments to meet with them. I have been here now for three weeks and I am loving it!
Sorry this post is so long, I promise that I am almost done! Let's then last week my brother in law got married, and it was wonderful! I helped do the flowers, which was way fun, tons and tons of flowers! I will have to do a seperate post all about that. Also on the same day, one of my dear friends and adopted grandma's passed away. It was a very emotional day, but I know that she is with her loving husband and with the Savior! It made me very grateful for the Plan of Salvation and Eternal Marriage! Well that sums up the first couple months of the year. I'm sorry that I really have been such a slacker at doing this, I will be better I promise!
