Sweet Boy

So, I thought I'd post a couple pictures of Cash. It's been awhile. He constantly changes and amazes me on how determined and smart he is. If he wants something open, he'll work at it until he gets it. Cash went to work with Ryan the other day from 12-8. He quickly got promoted to landscape supervisor. He even got a little farmer's tan. Ryan took a couple pictures of him, thank goodness. Pretty soon he will be speaking Spanish and getting everyone organized. :) This morning I found him all the way in Max's kennel, with Max in there as well. He wanted to give him loves! His new favorite place to play in the kitchen is the lid drawer underneath the stove. I turned around this morning from washing dishes, and he was sitting in it talking and playing. I love that kid!! :) I stuck a few more pictures of Hawaii on there... I just had to!

The day we got back from Hawaii was pretty crazy. Not many of you know, but I have been trying to get a real estate sales position at the new Legacy development for some time now. It was one of the reasons I got my license to begin with! Anyway, I interviewed with them several times, and about a month and a half ago, they basically offered me the job full time (they did not want or even like the word "part time"). They told me to go home and think about it and give them an answer in the morning. I thought I'd be completely excited by this, but I left feeling sick and almost in tears. I just didn't feel like I should be spending the majority of my time away from my family and home. So I made the decision to tell them that I couldn't do it. The most I could do was part time. Anyway, I really didn't hear from them until the Saturday before we flew back home from Hawaii. Much to my surprise, they wanted to meet with me on Monday. So, after a red-eye flight (no sleep, thanks to the little girl in my belly), reuniting with my sweet little boy and puppies, I headed out to meet with them. They said they wanted to extend the job offer to me at part time and wanted me to start ASAP! I came home and talked it out with Ryan, asked my dad's advice, slept on it, and called them back the next morning to tell them yes! I worked last weekend and it was quite the learning experience. It's going to be a lot of fun.

Needless to say, I now work with Holmes Homes now, and I'm very excited to be a part of it. They are the main builder in the new Legacy development out in Eagle. If you haven't heard about it you really need to. It's absolutely incredible. There isn't anything else like it! I will be working the Parade of Homes this weekend if you'd like to come out and get more information and visit. Here are the web addresses as well for you to check out. It's well worth it! www.legacyidaho.com and www.holmeshomes.com Check them out! Also, Mia Hamm and Brandi Chastain (part of the acadamies at Legacy) are going to be coming out for a Semi-Grand opening on June 14th. Everyone should come and be a part of it, it's going to be huge!

Hawaii was amazing! Becky kept telling me that I'd get "bit by the bug" and it for sure happened. However, as we started our vacation and had to leave our little Cash, Ryan and I both almost called the whole thing off. It was NOT an easy task to get on that plane. We missed him and his cute face the whole time, but we still enjoyed ourselves immensely. We stayed on the North Shore near Sunset beach. Our house was one away from the water, and very nice. Ted's Bakery was just a block away and we went almost every morning for their addictive donuts and omlets. We'd sleep to the sounds of the waves (and the occasional dog bark, thanks to Poi) every night. I wish I could remember everything that we did! We were able to visit the PCC and went to the Temple, which was beautiful. We visited the BYU-H campus and the Dole factory. Most of all, we played and laid on the beaches and enjoyed the crystal clear water. It was a dream. Here are a few pictures of the trip. I'm going to be brave and post some that I normally wouldn't, just so you all can get a good view of the belly. Enjoy!
