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 appreciated...my 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)....it 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! :)
