Once In A Lifetime

Curtis was baptized SEVEN years ago this month!! Crazy! :) Bishop Edgely, first counselor of the Presiding Bishopric, attended his baptism. We happened to run into him a couple weeks ago at the Utah vs. BYU basketball game and he invited us up to Salt Lake for lunch. We went up to the Church Administration Building today and had lunch in a cafeteria where the apostles eat...and guess who was sitting at the table next to us?! Elder Jeffrey R. Holland!! :) He came and sat with us for 5-10 minutes. It was an incredible experience!! They are both AMAZING men! We also got to meet President Hinckley's son and grandson...and a bunch of other people! I can't believe how down to earth President Holland was. He made you feel so special and like he truly cared about everything you had to say. :) I can't even explain it. It was an extraordinary...once in a lifetime experience to be surround by such remarkable people!

Bishop Edgely. Most likely the biggest BYU fan I have ever met! :)

Elder Holland.

Huge Scare

Two nights ago, Curtis and I were laying in bed watching TV. Tyson was laying on the edge of our bed scratching his nose when out of nowhere, he jumped off the bed started chasing something (or so I thought). We just heard him banging into walls. He stumbled down the stairs and could barely stand on his feet. Curtis went down stairs to check on him...then bolted back upstairs and put on a jacket. He knew there was something wrong. I was freaking out and quickly put on some shoes and ran downstairs. Just by looking at Tyson I knew something was wrong. He could barely stand up. I let him outside and he just wobbled out the door. He threw up 3 times on the front lawn. I ran back inside to google a 24 hour animal hospital. There's an animal hospital right down the street from our house with a 24 hour on call Doctor. We called him up and he said he'd meet us there in 10 minutes. Over the next few minutes Tyson started acting like himself again. We took him to the hospital and he was pretty much back to normal. The doctor checked him out and said he was fine. He said to keep an eye on him for the next 24 hours and if any of the symptoms come back to call him up again. He was SO nice and let us go free of charge :) It was the weirdest thing ever! We still don't know what happened or what was wrong. It was scary! You probably think I'm crazy...but I was totally freaked out. It's pretty much safe to say that Curtis and I will be overprotective parents someday haha! :)

Happy Valentine's

Curtis got me the most amazing flowers for Valentine's this year! :) I'm not a huge flowers kind of girl...but every once and a while they can totally brighten my day! After a LONG day at work we went to Ruby River for dinner. It was the only place we could get into without reservations (since I have connections in high places haha... jk). After dinner we headed straight to the gym to burn off our hearty meal :) It was a simple, but perfect Valentine's Day!

I got a promotion last week!! :) I'm officially the Assistant Director of Nursing (ADON) at Provo Rehabilitation and Nursing!! CRAZY!!
Last month, the Director of Nursing talked to me about a possible promotion. At first, she wanted me to be a charge nurse or unit manager. I was in that position for about 3 weeks when she approached me again about the ADON position. I was in SHOCK! I've only been at this facility since August. I never thought I would even be in the running for this position! This past week has been CRAZY busy. It's always hard adjusting to a new job and trying to learn all that goes into it. My "to-do list" seems to be never ending! I'm definitely still learning...and probably will for the next 6 months! I'm super excited about this opportunity and I know I will learn A LOT! It's been extremely hard trying to balance my last semester of school with working full time, but it will all be worth it in the end. :)
