I am moving to the Pleasant Grove Branch!

I know I know, its so hard to beleive that after almost three years I am leaving the South Orem Branch of UCCU. It is about time I think. I got offered a full time MSR/Loan Officer position at the pleasant Grove Branch and I am so excited. I will be closer to home and doing what I love full time. I am working full time now, but I work as Head Vault teller in the morning until 12, then I do loans the rest of the day. I have been wanting a position like this for some time now and it is about time! I will probably not leave for sure for 2 weeks, it will be a great change for me. I will miss every one at South "O" very much! Even those of you that have been calling me "traitor" all week ;) Thank goodness for phones and email.

DAD'S 50th Birthday!

So my dad turned 50 yesterday! I know can you beleive it?? Ok ok so its not that old and he claims he feels fantastic. That is all that matters right? So, we attempted to throw him a suprise dinner at brick oven ( key word being ATTEMPTED). Of course he knew exactly what was coming! My father cannot be fooled...this is true. The dinner turned out to be great and it was fun to be around my side of the family. Yes, it has been a while :) We filled the room with black balloons and he ended up getting an " over the hill" survival kit, great idea Ulene! All in all it was a great day and I think he loved it.

Side note: I locked my keys inside my house yesterday. Thats right, I left my keys on the counter and locked the door behind me. then i went to start my car....hahaha oh wait I dont have my keys! I was on my way to pick up my friend to take her to get her car out of the shop, I started freaking out. So I went over to the realtors office of pebblewood...I dont know why because I knew they woudlnt keep a key to the house we own, but I was desperate. So Nate the guy in the office decides to be a good samaritan and help me out. We tried many of them being to climb on the roof to see if my window was unlocked, it was but the ladder was not tall enough. Next, we tried to see if any of the construction workers could pick locks somehow (CREEPY) Then, since my dead bolt was not locked Nate decided to try to unlock the door with a credit card. I was thinking ummmm not in a million years is this clean cut goody good realtor going to be able to jimmy my door. Magically all of a sudden the door pops open!! he looked about as shocked as I was! I almost hugged him but refrained (which was awkward). I was so happy and glad that I didnt have to ditch my friend in her time of need :) Also, there is a lesson to be learned....Lock your dead bolts because it is obviously not hard to open a door with a credit card. Unless Nate is holding back on us in someway.....

Brad and I were both lucky to have a three day holiday weekend. I was very excited because Brad does not have holidays off as often as I do :) We woke up early on Friday and decided to go eat breakfast at Ihop. The only problem was that so did everyone else in American Fork! Luckily it is just the two of us so we didnt have a thirty minute wait like some other families. There is no better way to start your Fourth of July day than to eat red, white, and blueberry pancakes! They were wonderful. Next, we decided to make our way to the mall do some shopping and catch a movie with the family. We went and saw Hancock. It was not a super great movie, like we thought it was going to be. The story was a bit lacking...but we still had a fun time.

The best part of the day was of course the FIREWORKS! Brad's family watches the staduim of fire fireworks every year. they set up blankets and chairs near the marriot center. Brad talked me into driving there on the scooter. I really did not want to drive that long of a way on the scooter, but I gave in. It really did turn out to be a fun little ride :) So, we are all sitting on the blankets talking and having a good time. Out of nowhere we hear this squirting noise....I feel a little water on my face and i was thinking someone was squirting us with water guns. Needless to say, I am a little slow. The sprinklers came right on!! we were all scrambling and running to pick up our things, while trying not to get soaked!! It was actually pretty funny :) We had to move our things across the street to a different area. The fireworks were so great!! They really do get better every year. We had such a fun and family filled fourth of July. Thanks everyone!

P.S. we saw WALL E on Saturday. Now that movie is worth seeing! It was soooo cute. Everyone needs to go out and see it :)
