Starting My Own Business

So today I officially signed up as an avon consultant.  I am really excited about it.  I think I have a good shot with my 3 main networks: work, church, and the only womens gym that I go to.  The lady who I met with Pauline was so nice.  She had quite a few questions about the church.  I think it's a good missionary opportunity if nothing else.  She is a neat lady!  I can't wait to introduce the gospel more.  She said that every mormon she knows is really happy! :) it's true!  So I am going to be handing out books and making my clientel, probably the hardest part... getting started.  I look forward to the money though.  It will help.  We are going to put it towards a trip to Mexico! :) (Good incentive to get me going).  Well Calgary... HERE I COME!!!

Valentines Day!

So yesterday was our first Valentines day being married!  Shane woke up first as I wanted a few more minutes of shut eye.  I woke up, threw on my gym clothes, and was off to the gym.  I love the Kickboxing Combo that they have on Saturday mornings at 9:15 AM!!!!  I am totally paying for it today, but it was worth it.  I came home to do the typical Saturday morning routine (laundry, dishes, etc...)  Shane and I exchanged gifts, a gift card and season 4 of the office.  We went shopping and were preparing for our date that evening.   I had googled the Keg and called and set up a reservation for us.  Yesterday, to find out that we were headed to the other end of town.  We decided to take the C-Train and went downtown.  It was MINUS 14!!!  It was a really cold 5 block walk!  We were seated and enjoyed the BEST steak I have ever had.  It was fabulous!  Not to mention the best part... it was FREE because we had a gift card!  Needless to say, the coldness was worth it!  We came home plenty full and are happy to have each other!  Tomorrow might not be as pretty :(

Ok, so after swearing off blogging because I didn't want to be a "typical Utah girl," I've decided that it's a lot easier than keeping a journal, so here I go.  It's crazy that it is February already!  We are running at full force here at the Gallup home.  It is fun being a newly wed and rejoicing when our friends get engaged, or pregnant, etc.  It is sounding like we have a summer of wedding ahead of us, and we are ok with that (ours is done and over with)!  Shane is bak in school again and looking forward to next week, READING WEED = 1 whole week off of school!  I am happy, but I will be working like crazy doing marketing at Earls.  At lease he will have some time to do things that he really enjoys.  We are looking forward to Saturday... Valentines day!  Woot woot!  Surprisingly enough, working in a restaurant, I have the day off :) :) :) :).  We plan on going to the Keg, a nice restaurant (where we have a gift certificate, thanks to Shane's Christmas Bonus)!  That is if we get reservations... I should get on that.  Anyways, we are looking forward to that!  "Time flies on wings of lightning, we cannot call it back."  Amen to that!
