California Dreamin'

Just a little while back I took a trip to Sacramento, CA. Actually I was in Roseville, just outside of Sacramento. I went to go see to friends from my mission, Jamie and Adam. Adam was my zone leader for about 4 months of my mission. Jamie and I never served together, but have become good friends since being home. As there are few sisters in the mission, we'd see each other at zone conferences and firesides. She came to Utah for a mutual companion's wedding and also for the reunion. These two are some of my best friends from the mission!

Trying to get a good pose for reunion memories..

Eating at PF Changs where Sam, Jamie's boyfriend, works...hook ups!!

The night that I flew in, Jamie took me to a multi-stake YSA dance. Gotta love getting down with my bad self!

What?! Work?!

Most of you know that I work at Zions Bank, well the branch I work at just closed and moved up to another branch. In preperation for the move, we had to throw a lot of things out. One night while cleaning out paper, Preston and I desided to have a paper war. We threw cash out tickets everywhere. This picture is after we gathered them all up.
The next day Caryn found tickets in random boxes...good times!

Tough Girls of out!

Here's the bank that I used to work at, it's an in-store branch. But starting Tuesday I'll be at a normal branch with a drive-up and everything. My new boss is cool, she's pretty chill. I was a bit nervous at first, but things'll be good!

As Sisters in Zions...couldn't resist!

Get out the way! Get out the way! Move!

Well a couple of weeks ago I experienced something for the first time, I hit a deer while driving. Luckily I was driving on a street with a slow speed limit, so I was only going about 25 to 30 mph. I was going down hill so I had my foot on the break to keep myself from going too fast. Although I wasn't going too fast, I'm sad to say that the deer didn't make it. After hitting it, it stood up and just stood there looking at me. As if to say, "what did you just do? did you really just hit me with that car?" After just standing there, making cars go around him, he walked to the side of the road and laid down. I must have done some internal damage, cause by the time I drove off he wasn't moving. I called the police to report it, and it looked dead when the cop was over there prodding at it. Too bad Curtis wasn't there with his bow.

Here are some of the pictures for the damage, you can see it's pretty minimal. The grill looks cracked, because of the bubbling of the crome finish.

This was the worst of the damage to the car, too bad I can't say the same for the deer.
