Yay for today!!!

No pictures today. Why you may ask? Well, it's because my gut is the size of a 15 pound watermelon. Today was delightful-started early with sending my little sister Jana off back to Provo, and then sent David off to work. I had about 20 min to myself and just sit and ponder. It was the best 20 min of the day. Until I forgot that I hadn't packed my lunch yet-so I rushed and did that and literally sprinted out to my car for work. (the neighbor was laughing at me the whole time because I forgot something in the house and I stalled the car trying to keep it running and go up really fast.) But anyways....work was great. I'm almost done with training at the bank and I am super excited to start being an official tell for real. I mean playing with fake money is great and all, but I need more interaction with people throughout the day!

Side note: Today I was trained by Robin, she is a delightful woman with a lot of experience under her belt. She is kind and warmhearted and I want to be more like her. She greeted me with a warm smile and a hug and said "welcome to the bank! I'm sorry I wasn't here last week, but let's get started..." I instantly felt at home and calm. We talked throughout the day, reviewed what I had been learning all last week and she was just wonderful. When I had questions, she made me feel smart for asking 'the right ones' and if I ever made a mistake she would say, oh it took me years to really figure these things out! I found out that we were 'soul sistas' because we had similar wedding rings, and taste in clothes (she like to wear black, gray...and sometimes color, haha like me!) She took time to get to know me and my family and even invited me to go to her house for dinner sometime soon-it was just nice to feel special and not just the 'trainee' Oh how I adore Robin, and I am so grateful for her today.

Ok, back on track....today was great, I got off work early and headed straight home, picked up David and we went to the TEMPLE!!!! WAHOOOOO!!!!! Oh how I love the Temple and its peaceful power. You enter and whatever problems you had that day just melt away, and you instantly feel at home. Nothing can beat the feeling of being in the Temple with your hubby-knowing that you both are doing what is right. Well, also tonight our dear friends Lindsay and Devon were getting out their endowments for their wedding on Friday! So excited for that too! Wahoo! :) Well, after a glorious session David suggested that we go to Craigos. (ok, it went more like....

me: I feel gaunt
david: well what do you want to eat?
me: doesn't matter
david: no really, what do you want?
me: seroiusly, doesn't matter, I"ll have whatever tonight
david: what do you want
me: ok, PIZZA!!!!
david: so do you want craigos, dominos, little cesars, pizza hut...
me: doesn't matter
david; mandy just tell me
me: no you pick, i picked what kind of food
david: well....how about little cesars...
me: uhhhh maybe not...
david: then what do you want?
me: craigos? maybe?
david: I could do craigos
david: why didn't you just tell me in the first place?
me: mumble mumble mumble
david: what was that? I can't hear you?
me: doesn't matter, we're getting PIZZA!!!!

If any of you were wondering if that's how we did dinner every night, it is. haha doesn't always end up being craigos, but switch in different foods and that's pretty much how it is daily. haha-you'd think I'd learn.

Ok, so now you all know-after an all you can eat pizza buffet including dessert pizza (ooo I love orero!) I am sufficiently stuffed for the next 2 days and want to go work out but know if I move, I'll regret it later.  So I'm committing to work out tomorrow, and if I don't...well, I 'll have David think of a punishment. Overall, life is good and I couldn't be happier :)
