What a crazy life we lead!

It has been a busy couple of weeks for us lately. We moved back home for a few months while we decide our next step... We were going to be buying a house in the fall, however, both our cars have been having problems lately and since I'm not alone in the car anymore, Jason and I decided it was time for a new car (Thanks David! lol). This past week, Jason and I sold my old Impala and bought an '08 Chevy Cobalt - it is beautiful! I don't think I've ever owned a car this new and I'm loving it! Jason's next car? A new Chevy Malibu! We wanted to buy it this time around, but it was just too much car for our budget... We'll try again in the future.
Jason has started a new job (we both lost our jobs last month). He has returned to the nursing home where he did his clinical hours for his CNA program last fall. It's not an ideal situation since he makes less and has an hour drive each way, but it's better than nothing. With the hours he works, he makes just about as much as we both did combined. I'm now a stay at home mom and I love it! I do miss making an income and working, but being able to stay home with David is amazing. He has grown so much lately and is so much fun!
We also took our first family vacation the first weekend in June - We set off for Salt Lake City, Utah! Our plane left Thursday night the 4th and we came home Monday night the 8th. We visited our friends and family and had a blast! I also got to see one of my missionary friends! Her and her companion were the ones who taught me before I got baptized - it was awesome to see her again! We also got to go to temple square which was amazing! We didn't get to go do anything inside the temple since we had David, but the spirit was amazing just being on the grounds. I laughed because there were so many couples being married that day!! When Jason and I got married, there was an older couple being sealed that morning, then us just after noon and that was it! Of course that was St. Louis and not Salt Lake. I'll upload pictures as soon as my computer stops acting dumb

Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
