Miller Motorsports Park

Just wanted to post a few pictures of the activity I went to with work on Friday. We went karting at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele. It was a bit cold, but definitely a lot of fun. I drove like a snail though, I'm still cautious from my scooter accident. Enjoy the pictures! :)

Most of the ladies from my dept at work
Kristie and Me gearing up!
Peace OutNotice anyone around me!? That's because I'm going so slow!!!This feels like a top gun moment, no!?

I was looking at my sister's blog this morning...has it really been 5 WEEKS since my last post!? My apologies, I'm completely pathetic and totally boring. I've been so enthralled in my seasons of Friends that I'm totally ignoring my husband, ironing, dishes, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, The Office and so many other wifey responsibilities. The worst part is I'm only half way through....5 seasons down and 5 more to go (I hope to still have a husband when I'm done).

In other news, I got a hair cut on Saturday. What do you think!?

Please disregard the frizz and the no makeup...I've attempted this picture several times in the car, but to no avail. I finally had to recruit my friend from work to help me out- hence the mug shot! It's taken a while to get used to, but I think I like the change.

I did vote yesterday and was horrified that I waited so long to go (I was not looking forward to the evening rush). Matthew and I headed to the poll's at 6:30pm with books in hand ready to wait in the long line. To our surprise there was none, that's right....NO LINE!!! We walked right up gave them our name, placed our vote, and walked out- in less than 10 minutes. It was a Miracle!

I'm counting down the days to AZ...48 to be exact! I'm looking forward to two weeks with friends, family and delicious food. Not to mention quality time with my adorable nieces and nephews.

I'm missing my father in my life. I pray every day that he knows how much I love him and miss him. I know he's watching over me and I hope he's proud of who I've become. I'm so grateful for the church and the plan of salvation.

I completely admire and look up to Stephanie and Christan Nielsen's Family. Their story is incredible and I feel moved by their strength, love, and determination.

I'm so blessed to have a husband who loves me and works hard for our family. I know that he is striving to make a life for us that we can enjoy. Money might be tight, but we're happy and totally in love. He'll be graduating in April of 2010. I'm totally excited for this!!!! Then on to Grad School...

I kicked butt at work this quarter!!! I brought in lots of money and closed lots of audits and I even surpassed all of my personal goals (which I thought would be nearly impossible)!!!

I'm loving the weather today- cold and snowing! If only I were home in bed watching Friends! ;)

I feel blessed at work, at home and in my callings and my relationships with my family and friends. I'm completely happy with my life!

Thank you for reading and Happy November! :)

P.S. I promise to post more often in the month of November.
