When Pablo and I moved to Utah we came hoping that we could get jobs super fast! Thankfully we have both found part time jobs in less then 3 weeks. I am working for lane Bryant and Pablo is working for Wells Fargo. We are so grateful to have an income again. We are hoping to both find second jobs until we start school but for now we are grateful for what we have.
Growing up I never appreciated my siblings as I do now. This past weekend was my birthday and all of my siblings were there except Jerry. It was so great to have family around. I feel like I am finally super close to all of my siblings and I love it. Here are some pictures of us after dinner this past Saturday. Love you guys!
One day my husband sat down on the couch with a bag of saltine crackers and a stick of butter. He then proceeded to spread the butter on the crackers and eat them! For awhile I thought it was the strangest snack ever! One day I got up the nerves to try it and IT IS AMAZING!! Pablo also likes to put jam on the crackers. You would never think huh, but its so good! Try it please! I find myself craving it these days. Yay for saltines and butter!

As sad as it may be Pablo and I love our dog to pieces. He really is our pride and joy. He is a long haired Chihuahua and we got him in May. Pablo found him while he was knocking doors over the summer. Pablo saw his brother and thought he was so cute so two days later we went and picked up Podi for only fifty dollars. He sleeps with us every night and he tends to receive lots of scraps from the table because of his super cute face. He is now seven months old and loves to go outside. We try to give him a chance to run around wherever he wants at least once a day. He also goes on several walks a day so he can relieve himself. It's so nice to have a cute furry friend to come home to and Pablo and I enjoy splitting up the responsibilities to prepare for parenthood. We recently have had to destuff all of Podi's toys since he takes all the stuffing out and eats it. :) We currently have several raggedy non stuffed animals lying around our house and a ton of half chewed bones. For now he is our only responsibility and we love having him as part of the family. He brings a smile to our face everyday.Podi with grandma Elena
Pablo and I moved to California this past summer to work for Pinnacle Security. It was a really hard summer! Pablo was working about ten hours a day knocking door to door selling security systems. Pablo took some of his signs home when he switched people over to Pinnacle. Here are the signs he brought home at the end of the summer. He was so excited to be done and so was I.
So here is the story. Pablo and I met when he got home from serving a mission in Colorado. We met through a mutual friend over Thanksgiving break in Washington in 2007. We became best friends right away. For several months we dated other people and talked all the time giving each other advice and being best friends. We both headed off to BYU-Idaho for the summer semester in 2008. We started dating almost immediately and the rest is history. We have been married for almost a year now and are excited to start a blog so that our friends and family can keep up with our lives. We just moved to Provo Utah. In the winter I will be attending BYU and Pablo will be attending UVU. As of right now we are working and just enjoying life with the two of us and our cute dog Podi. Thanks for keeping up with us!
