Weekend update

Well I survived my 1st week at my new job! Yay! By friday afternoon, my brian hurt! lol.

Happy Wendy on Friday morning! 
I became official at work with my new name plate :)
 Friday night, Jon and I headed out to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner.  We love that place! Then spent the rest of the night hanging out at home.
Oh Mr. Burns, he cracks me up :) FYI, he slammed his finger in the bathroom door, so now he has an yucky nail that will probably fall off :(
We stopped by a bar near our place before heading home for some drinks :)
Our Saturday of course revolved around college football! We headed to Scottsdale to watch the game at Dos Gringos.  We ended up sitting at a table with another couple and ended up hanging out the rest of the night.  They are both from Oregon, so that was fun, and then while we were sitting there, one of our friends from back home ended up walking into the bar! lol, it was so random! So we hung out with him and his coworkers also.  So it was a very fun filled day!

Such a beautiful sunset saturday night!
Sunday morning, we headed to the sports bar near our place to watch the Eagles game.
Mimosas and football!
Then came home and Jon got ready for his trip, sad face! And then I drove him to the airport, sadder face! He's in California for work until Wednesday, and then his bff Rob comes into town on Friday night.  So we are pretty excited for our very 1st Oregon visitor in our new home :)

Hopefully these next few days go by quickly, I hate being home alone with out my lovie!   Hope everyone had a great weekend and has a super week!

Today is a BIG day!

This is a very special blog post for a very special lil sister, who is not so little anymore :(

My little sister, Michelle, turns 21 today, and I am so sad that I cannot be there to celebrate such a special day with her.  Michelle, or Chicha as she is referred to in our family, is 9 years younger than me.

She has a great way of making me feel like an old lady, but at the same time, has not problem stealing me clothes, which means that I am still kind of cool, right??!!!

Meeting my lil sister and best friend for the 1st time. 
Me, Chicha and our niece Ellie on Michelle's 18th birthday. 
Us on my special day
This picture cracks me up! This was a few years ago, we were all hanging out at our older sisters house, and Michelle had left to run an errand.  Well, she was gone for a VERY long time, so we decided to pull a prank on her and our niece.  SO Jon and our brother in law climbed up onto the roof with a hugh bucket of water.  We planned on dumping the bucket on our niece Ellie, but she was smart and stopped at the door step, as you can see above, but Michelle just walked right out, so she was the lucky receiver of the bucket of water.  I love that I caught the action with my camera! 
Michelle has visited me in all of the different states i've lived in.  Well, Ive only lived in 2 states, other than Oregon, BUT she's been to both! :)
Us when she came to visit me in Seattle for a weekend. 
Us at the beach in Santa Cruz.  We always have a great time together :)
I love the relationship she and Jon have also.  They definitely act like brother and sister :)  He's the big brother she never had and she's the little sister he never had! 
Whenever we are together, we always cook something yummy up in the kitchen! 
I am very proud of you chicha, and everything that you have accomplished in your young 21 years.  I cannot even imagine all of the other amazing things your will accomplish in your lifetime! I love how big of a heart you have and how you are following your dreams  to work with people with special needs.  I love that you look up to me, because my whole life, I tried to be the best example I could be for you, because I only want whats best for you.  We have had some pretty hard times in our family, but all of it has made us stronger women.  I am proud to call you my lil sister and best friend.  I miss you SO much and I hope you have a great day today celebrating such a special day! 

Love you forever lil sis! Come visit me soon so we can celebrate in the desert together!!!

Oh Monday! I passed your test!

So yesterday was a big day for me.  It was my 1st day at my new job and I was VERY excited about it!  Sunday night, Jon and I picked out my outfit and were all set for my big day.

Yesterday, I got up early got ready for work, and just hung out with Miley until it was time for me to head to work.  Just a nice quiet morning...... Until I get to my car, and it WOULDN'T start! Like the AC & the radio would turn on, but that was it! So I started to panic! I had about 45 mins before I had to be at work.  So I call Jon and told him that my car wouldn't start and I didnt' know what to do, since he was already at work.  He told me he was on his way, but to go ask our neighbor, Al, if he could help me get my car started.  Luckily, we have very sweet neighbors, and Al was getting ready to head out for golf, so he came over and checked my car out and said the battery was dead, boooo!!!!  So I rolled my car down the driveway, and he came over with his car and jumped my car.  After his jump, my car turned on, but Jon didn't want me to risk anything, so he picked me up and drove me to work.

By the time Jon picked me up, it was 7:30 and GPS said my office was only 22 mins away, so I wasn't too worried, until we hit the freeway.   It was like a freaking parking lot! So I'm back in panic mode! Thankfully, after some scary maneuvers from the husband, we made it over to the carpool lane, and were able to bypass most of the traffic.  And guess what???!!! I made it to work 5 min early!  I couldn't believe that my morning had started like that!

Thankfully, my boss wanted to take me out to lunch for my 1st day, or else I would of starved at work! lol.  After my very eventful morning, I spent the rest of my day training and learning about my position.  It looked a little like this:
This is my new cubical.  Ill post more pics once its cuteness level increases! 
I have never worked in a HR team, its always just been me and my boss, but at this company we have a team of HR members, and Im really excited about that.  I met a few of them, and they all seem very nice.  So I'm pretty excited for whats to come! :)

Jon picked me up from work, and then we headed home, picked my car up and took it over to a car parts store and they checked my battery and they confirmed that my battery was bad, so we had to get me a new one.

Monday tried to ruin my day, but better luck next time! Team Burns can overcome anything! :) :)

Lets hope the rest of the week goes by smoothly!!!

Happy Monday!!

Guess who has a job and 1st day is today??!!! This girl! Yay!!! I am now an Employment Coordinator for a big pool company.

I had my 1st interview with them 2 weeks ago, and then I had a 2nd interview on Friday.  The interview was at 10:00 am Friday morning, and at 12:20, I received a call from my new boss offering me the job :)  So it was a GREAT way to kick off my weekend!

Friday night, Jon and I went out to dinner to celebrate, and then got home and had a FaceTime hanging out with our good friends, Janet & Phil, back in Oregon.  I think we FaceTimed for about 2 hours, and it was a lot of fun.  I love FaceTime, it definitely feels like you are hanging out with your friends, even if they are far away. We are planning a Vegas vacation to go see Britney Spears new Vegas show that starts in December.  Janet and I are lucky enough to have husbands that are willing to go to the show with us :)  We are planning our trip sometime in February, and I am SO excited for it!

Saturday morning consisted of breakfast, mimosas and a surprise from the husband with some pretty flowers :)
Slaving away making breakfast! lol
Pretty colorful flowers from Mr Burns
My scruffy dog! We are finally getting her groomed Wednesday, thank goodness! 
And no Saturday is complete without some college football! So, Jon's friend, Curtis came over to watch the Duck game with us.
Jon and Curtis supporting their Ducks
Miley hanging with the boys watching the game
Supporting my Duckies! 
Miley fell asleep towards the end of the game.  The Ducks were dominating the other team, so there wasn't much action.
Sunday, Miley had a vet appointment to get her vaccines updated.  As you can see below, she was a very happy doggie, until the vet came into the room and started messing with her, lol.  But really, she did a good job, and is a very happy and healthy doggie, which makes me a happy dog mommy!  And she got to come home with a new super cute dog collar :)
After Miley's appointment, Jon and I did a lil shopping to get me ready for my 1st day of work.  Ever since I left my job in Oregon, which was 3 yrs ago, I have had very casual jobs and very laid back dress codes.  Now with this new job, I'm entering a very professional work environment, so it's time to vamp  up my work wardrobe.  Any kind of shopping is fun, so i don't have a problem with that!

Well, that was our weekend! Hope everyone has a great day and wish me luck on my 1st day of work!

Weekend Update

I know i'm a day late with my update, but i'm here now to give a lil update :)

Friday was a big day for me, I had another job interview for a HR position with a pool company and it went amazing!!!! I seriously felt like I was gonna walk out of there with the job BUT they are just waiting on getting my background check clearance and they would like me to come back in for a 2nd interview this week.  So i'm pretty excited about this job, it sounds like a great job for me and a great opportunity to learn and grow.
Friday night, Jon and I had date night, so we headed out to a near by Mexican restaurant and had a great dinner and it was nice to finally sit down and just talk and have a good time.
Saturday was a laid back day, we spent our morning working on our tans in the pool, then we checked the mall out near our place and then we headed to a nearby bar to catch the UFC fight.  It was our 1st time at that bar and it wont be our last.  The servers and the food were great!
My yummy dinner.  Gouda mac & cheese. So great!
Sunday was a gerat day for me! Jon totally spoiled me :) We headed to the mall and I got to get my very 1st Michael Kors purse! Yay! We had a deal, where once I got a job, he would buy me one BUT I managed to get it before getting a job, lol.  Then we walked into Kate Spade and they were having a huge sale SO I got to walk out of there with a new purse too! Yay me!

My new babies!

Since I got spoiled, we went to sushi for dinner since Jon loves his sushi.  Jon was pretty disappointed with it, so we are still on the hunt for a great sushi place.

Now i'm just spending my week getting our place completely unpacked and keeping my fingers crossed that I get some good news this week!
