The Job Hunt is On...

Boy, do I feel old... I went OUT with multiple copies of my resume (which is something job seekers did in the olden days to impress potential employers) and was told at every turn that hiring is now done online.  How, pray tell, would you DARE hire someone from the internet.  Isn't that the place where people can create a persona completely different from what they actually are?!  Ugh.  I hate job hunting.

Keller Williams Realty Marketing Manager?
Avon Lady? - is this even a real job???
Dillard's Sales Associate?
Jet Blue Reservationist (from the comfort of my house) - not hiring

These just sound like poo to me! :(


"Mom, when were you born?"
"Uh, it's the 2000's now.  That was a long, long, long time ago."
"Thanks, Ellie."

Del Taco Days

Del Taco.  If you're part of the Utah crowd, you know there's really no better place to gather when Grandmom & Granddad are in town.  I love this place and miss them.

Girls' Day Out

It's Martin Luther King, Jr. Day ~ no school for my little ladies.  Sandy opted to stay home for the day, but Ellie & I went on a little outing :)  We started by sharing a lunch special @ 2 Jack's Pizza in Spanish Fork.  THE BEST LITTLE 8 INCH PIZZA ON EARTH!! 

Then we went to FYE in Orem to buy a new copy of The Phantom of the Opera.  

After FYE, we headed over to Petsmart where Ellie got 3 new goldfish. 
Their names are Clynette, Nemo & Brackin.

We're home now with all of the lights off and curtains drawn watching The Phantom of the Opera in surround sound.  I think I might be in heaven!

Repurposing Slatted Closet Doors

Sandy's room was a bore. No bed frame. No mirror. No color. No flair. Brady works with discarded supplies all day long and brought home some thrown-out slatted closet doors. Sandy's room makeover was in full swing and he decided to use the old doors to make a headboard. Here's how it turned out!!
