It was a really good trip and I am so glad we were able to make the loooooong drive to Colorado to see them. It was definitely worth it!

My My My

Well, Garrett and I got back to Moscow last night from a 6 day trip to Kiowa, Colorado. It is a little town about an hour SE of Denver. We were taking this trip with my dad and family to celebrate my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. I am so proud of them for sticking through the hard times and making it 50 years! It is such an accomplishment.
We had a great time and did some great things: went to the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Aquarium, Denver Zoo, shopped, ate, talked, and on Saturday had a 50th anniversary party!
I will post pics soon...I lost my camera's battery charger again! I really don't know how that keeps happening!
I had an interview scheduled at a denist office this morning and so we hurried back so I could get ready for that. So, I show up this morning and the lady I had the interview with tells my they hired someone while I was on vacation and they had dental experience, so they gave the job to that person. She said she forgot to call me! I couldn't believe it. I thought it was so inconsiderate that she didn't call and let me know. I was also heartbroken because I have been searching and applying like crazy to jobs since we moved here in May and this was only my 2nd call back...I thought I was going to get it. I was so dissapointed. I just started crying the second I got back into my car...what can you do, though? Every one keeps telling me that God will provide in His own time and I know that to be true, but it is still dissapointing and frustrating. I will just keep praying and trusting God with it all.
I am now getting settled back home. I still need to unpack. But, I have put away some things, went grocery shopping, filled the car back up with gas, dropped Garrett off at work, mailed bridal shower invitations, bought Jess and Trent a shower gift, and now am about to clean the kitchen and make some cupcakes.
I am tired and a little sad. But, I know that everything will be okay. :)

Updates, Trips, Jobs and Cupcakes

Things have been pretty busy around here. We have had multiple family members come and stay with us this past week. Garrett's mom came up for a weekend and then my mom and brothers came a few days after that.
It is always nice to spend time with family and we had a fun time. Here is a few pics of my family on our hike up Moscow Mountain:

Garrett and I are going to have another busy week because we are leaving tonight for a week long trip to see my dad's side of the family in Colorado. It is my grandparent's 50th anniversary and they are having a big party for it. It will be so much fun to spend time with them and get a break from hectic life here in Moscow. :)
I will definitely be posting pics of our trip when I get back.
I have been applying to SO many jobs that I can't keep track of what I applied to and what I didn't! And finally I have a job interview! This trip is sort of in the way, but luckily they were very willing to wait for me to return! I am just praying and praying that I will get this job. It is at a pediatric dentist office here in Moscow as a receptionist. I think I would just love it! So, prayers for that would be greatly interview is August 12th @ 10 AM.
I would also appreciate prayers for a safe trip to Colorado as we are driving and it is a 13 hour drive from Boise.
On a lighter note, I am starting to have a new dream/goal in my life (besides being a mom, growing my business June Tree Designs, and serving in a women's ministry) is to own my own cupcake bakery! I don't know how serious about it I am, but I like the thought and have been making cupcakes like crazy! Here are the pics of my two favorites that I have made so far:

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

Cookies and Cream Cupcakes
Fun stuff. :)
Well, that is it for now...and I won't take so long in between posts next time! :)
