Why, oh why?

When I saw the ads for this movie I knew it was going to be hilarious!

And then when Jared told me that it was rated R I couldn't help but think, 'why does Hollywood have to ruin great story lines by making movies 'over the top' so it can be rated R?'

Nordies Promotion

Sorry for my February Funk...its been a busy couple of weeks and seasonal depression has definitely descended on our house, but I'm ready to get back into normal daily routines including blogging. I wanted to spill the beans on my big news and exciting opportunity as one of my many fresh starts.

After only seven months working for Nordstrom and one promotion within my department, I have been offered another promotion as a Clinique Specialist at the City Creek Nordstrom. I am completely head-over-heels over this new opportunity and challenge! It's definitely going to put me out of my comfort zone, but will be absolutely rewarding as I learn new concepts and tasks. My first day is the 20th of this month, which only gave me a little over a week to say goodbye to my team but it's a good goodbye.

Come see me at City Creek, for really anything if even to just say Hello!

Bonus: one more thing scratched off my Bucket List!

Target Practice

Jared is officially trying to get me ready for my carried concealed class that I probably will take sometime in March. He got the gun that I will carry as my CCW for me as a Christmas present and this was my first outing shooting it.

Jared was clearly a very proud husband.

Jared's 27th Surprise Party

Which I pathetically didn't take any photos of. Except for his sparkler candles which lit at different times so I only got a photo of one being lit. And he'd already blown out the other candles. Epic fail.

Additionally Jared came home a half hour earlier than I had planned so not all the guests had arrived yet to yell 'Surprise!' so it was more of, "Melissa, what are these people doing here?" and me yelling, "Surprise!" But the food was amazing, homemade green chili chicken enchiladas and peanut butter chocolate fudge cake both of which were huge hits!

Twenty seven is going to treat you great love!
