Honeymoon Cruise

Although it's 6 months late, we finally found our pictures from our cruise. We went on our honeymoon about a month after we got married. We went on a cruise to Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada Mexico, we has a blast!! Here are some of the highlights!

This is the first view of our ship, it was huge!

This is the grand staircase, it was so pretty and elegant.

Our waiters sang happy honeymoon to us at dinner and we had to kiss the entire time they sang, it was so much fun, we were laughing while kissing.

This look was pretty much how our faces looked the entire cruise, we had the best time!

*Conflict Resolution*

I went into my boss yesterday at the Pharmacy to speak to him about the problems I have been having with certain employees and the way that they treat me. I truly wanted to quit that job, but I'm very non confrontational (on certain things) and I was nervous about doing it. When I went into his office to quit, I began explaining to him the problems that I have been having and why I felt the way I did. He expressed his apology for the way I had been treated and told me that he didn't feel it appropriate for anyone in his company, janitor or not, to be treated that way. He told me it was my decision, but that if I wanted to stay he would speak with those departments and try to improve my working environment. I felt he truly cared about me and my position with them, so I'm going to give it a try! Hopefully things will improve, because I haven't enjoyed being treated that way, and if they don't I always have my option to quit!

I am still trying to find more full time work, because this will help Mike and I get qualified for a home loan. So if anyone knows of anything or hears of anything in the Pocatello area, let me know!
I have applied and sent resumes to several dentist offices in town, for both office work and dental hygiene assisting. But I'm willing to take anything!

*Changes in our life*

I always get bugged about updating my blog, and I know I should do better, but I have been slightly busy lately! Here's what's new in our lives!

-Mike is doing really well at his job, he makes a lot of sales and really enjoys his coworkers!
-I have been working 4 jobs over the past 6 weeks. I am still at Gold's Gym teaching swimming to little kids, I work at a communication lab on campus, I still have my students, and I recently got a job cleaning at a pharmacy. I don't really enjoy the pharmacy job and I will probably be quitting it soon...They're just not very nice to me and I don't appreciate a job where I'm treated that way.
-We are still living in Inkom, but we're trying to buy a house. Because Mike works mostly on commission, we can't qualify for a loan on his and my basic salary. Even though we would make enough to afford it, we can't qualify...
-I am loving being married, it is a lot of fun and I enjoy it a lot. My husband is amazing and treats me like a queen!
-We have been so busy with our school schedules...It's been slightly intense! But hopefully all will go well and we'll pass all of our classes.

So we're not moving...

Well, we thought and prayed a lot about what we should do with this opportunity we were given. In the end, we both couldn't get a good feeling about doing it, so we decided to graciously pass. We're looking at several different options now. We could possibly stick it out in Inkom, it's really not too terrible, but it would be nice living in town. If we stuck it out, we could save some money and get out of some debt. But it also would be nice to live in town, we'd be closer to work and school, we'd save money on gas, and be able to have the internet at our house. Once again, let us know what you think!

Possibly Moving!

Well, as many of you might know, we are currently living in Mike's grandmother's basement apartment. It has been such a blessing since Mike got laid off, we really wouldn't have been able to afford rent right now. It is in Inkom, which hasn't been too bad, just a big consumption of our time and gas. We did a lot of remodeling on the basement to get it nice and new for future use, which has made us feel really spoiled living there. We love living close to family, but it has been getting slightly difficult to live in Inkom while we're going to school, you can't exactly pop home for lunch when you live 20 minutes away.
Recently I was approached by a professor of mine, who I am good friends with, about the possibility of managing his apartment complex. He owns an apartment complex in old town called Brentwood Manor. It is an old fashion building, built in 1920, by a man from Chicago. He wanted to build something that resembled buildings from his old neighborhood. It is a very quaint building and very cute! We would be responsible for collecting rent, maintaining the building, and other little things like that, but we also get paid on the side for the extra hours we put in. We will be getting a 2 bedroom apartment, FREE, with all utilities and wireless internet included!! We're very excited about this possibility. However, we are still thinking and praying about it to make sure this is the right decision for us right now. Please comment and let me know what you think! If you want to visit the apartment, you can go to their website, which is
