So apparently, some of Taylor's friends think that I am too high maintenance and won't make it Thailand for five weeks and they are gonna start placing bets! All I have to say is keep your money crap faces because you are about to be proven wrong and if you think I can't handle it, then you don't know me very well at all!!! I won't go anywhere that is ultra dangerous, but that is pretty much a no brainer. Anyway, I just thought I would shout it out, because it made me a little upset. I will post some photos here soon, I promise! Until next time...

I gave my notice today at work and it was soooooooo sad. When I told my boss, she started to cry. I told a few of the girls that I am really close to before the annoucement email went out and they both cried and I cried and it was just heart breaking. I am so attached to the people here and have spent so much time with them that it's hard to say goodbye. I just felt so loved after the annoucement was made and everyone was so supportive and excited for me and it just shows me that this has really been a one of a kind job, but I have also met some one of a kind people and I will miss everyone dearly.

More First Bank!!

First Bank Continued... I love you all!

My Memories of First Bank of the Tetons... I will miss you all so much!

Dying to get out of here!!!

It is official!! I have short timers and all I can think about it quitting my job! I have worked at First Bank of the Tetons for a little over a year an a half; first as a teller and then after seven months, I was promoted to new accounts (Customer Service Relationship Manager) and I have been doing that for the last year. Banking is not something that I want to spend the rest of life doing, and I am just ready to move on. I haven't given my notice yet, and so I can't tell anyone about all that's on my mind, and it's killing me! I want to shout on the rooftops that I am going to Portland in 4 weeks and then to Boston and Thailand in 7 weeks!!! I want everyone to know, because I am so excited for a new chapter in our lives. I am ready for a break from Driggs, Idaho! Not that I don't love the beauty of this place and the happiness that it brings to my husband and all the people I've gotten to know, but I just need some time away.

Now for more big news... I am going to start applying to Esthetics schools to be an Esthetician and hopefully start in January!!!! I have been struggling for a long time with decision to go back to school or not and I have had this passion to go into Fashion Design, but it's no longer offered and Byu-Idaho and so if I went back, I would just be settling for some random degree that wouldn't make me happy. So I started looking into Esthetics, because it's not only extremely employable, but it's something that I would absolutely love and I could work at a spa, with a dermatologist, or at a Doctor's office; the possibilites are endless!! I'll keep you posted on what happens!

Southeast Asia: Here we come!

Taylor and I are big into traveling together; we've been to quite a few places since we've been married. We've been all over Eastern Europe, to Nassau Bahamas, and I got to go to New York with my Mom in '07. Our next adventure will be  to Boston for ten days to visit Taylor's parents and then we are off to Thailand, Camobodia and Loas this November for five weeks!! We are so thrilled, it will be an incredible experience.
