okay... i'm still kinda settling into life here, so i promise to start updating more once i get it together. it's weird to not have a routine. i don't even know where the library is yet- blasphemous.

so here's the update...
things are going really really good.
tyler is doing awesome with his business and i am super proud of him. withing the first week he had already lined up a few jobs, and gotten a lot of leads. within 2 weeks he has landed a couple of apartment complexes, and lots of businesses, and he hasn't even advertised yet.

we are super blessed.

i am currently cleaning for one of the complexes that tyler does the carpets for. i needed to find something while i waited for my nevada cosmetology license to come through, and this just sort of fell into place. i actually really love it. it is so nice to wear sweats to work and not deal with people at all. (i am cleaning empty apartments, and their main clubhouse). i just listen to my ipod and do my thang. it's super hard work, but i feel like i'm going to the gym for 5 hours a day, so bonus. also i work whatever hours i want and they're paying me well... so double bonus. i think i might take a break from hair for awhile and just do this.
so that's me.

our ward seems pretty good so far. we went to the ward christmas party the other night and had a fun time. it's so different from idaho! it feels like the kind of ward i grew up in which will be fun. tyler was in heaven because we sat by this super cool older couple, and the dude sat back and whisper gossiped with tyler the entire time, telling him the low down on everyone in the ward. tyler's dream.
dottie is enjoying being a reno puppy, but i think she misses her land. (and her gwamma). however, she loves the dog park, conveniently located down the street from our house, so we try to take her as much as possible.

just a heads up... ty will be updating his blog in the near future, so make sure you check it out so you can see 5000 vw bug pictures- ha. but really, check it out... he spent about three hours last night picking out 6 of his favorite songs to put on a playlist for his blog. so cute.

i have been thoroughly enjoying having my family so close. we had thanksgiving at kenny's house and then they came to our house for dinner a couple days later. sophia is the yummiest, and such a happy, funny, good natured two year old. dad and kathi came down for dinner and a movie (new moon whoop whoop), and then dad came down the other day and he and i garage saled and mcdonald's-ed it up. my dream come true.

so.... all in all we are doing great, feeling great, and keep looking at each other and saying how happy we are that we're here.
more later.

Selfishly, I'm still so sad that you're not going to be in Idaho to cut my's getting so long and I wanted to SHOW you!! But I am SO glad that you guys are settling in and loving your new life. Maybe we'll meet up one of these months in Utah. :)

I am so glad that you are happy!!! and we all knew tyler would do great! what a good hard working idaho boy. we can't wait to see you (and have you cut our hair of course. smile). what day are you coming now? Tell kenny a call would be nice!

So glad to hear that Reno is a good spot for you - and great that you're so close to family. Take advantage of being so close to Tahoe. Go skinny dipping and think of me. XOXO.

I love you and I miss you Nicole. I wish I could sit and talk to you on the phone for an hour...but I know that's not your style. :) I'm so glad you love Reno!!

ps- Kirsti and i were at the Mall today and I mentioned how much I loved Cinnabon, and she told me about how you and your Mom used to go there when you would go to reno and she would steal the middle out of the cinnabon as fast as she could so she could have it and you would get so mad. I laughed so hard picturing the whole thing. I could totally see it in my mind.

Yesterday night I plugged my iphone in to charge. I must have pressed clocks when I put it in as this morning when I woke up, 8 hours later, and unlocked the phone clocks was the first thing to show up on screen. Does that mean that the internet was connected all night or does it disconnect when it locks?
