AT&T PARK! So cool because it is right along the Bay
Lots has happened since I moved to Cali. Firstly, I got a full time job! Whoohoo! I am working at the Laura Mercier counter at Bloomingdale's in their Cosmetics department! And I am really enjoying myself! There is a very specific client who shops at the Stanford Shopping Center Bloomingdale's they fall into two molds. First, the old woman with the rock on her hand that would sink her right to the bottom of the ocean who you know will buy the ridiculously priced $95 hand creme. And second, the young Asian woman with the giant Louis Vuitton on her arm, usually with a pathetically small dog inside that I always confuse as a rat! In either case, I welcome them both at my counter with a large grin only to then have them confuse me as Tatyana, the blonde Russian woman who works at the counter across from me. She was worked there for years, and I do kindof look Russian I guess. When they find that I am not her, they are usually visually disappointed! Ah, the joys of the workplace. I have been having so much fun hanging out in the city! Danen's sister, Kiera is living in San Fran right now for 6 months doing an internship, so it has been so much fun hanging out with her and exploring the crazy sights of San Fran together! The greatest adventure we have had together requires its own unique posting that I will discuss in a few minutes!

This was the most exciting sight of our whole 13 hour drive... awesome isn't it!
Well everybody, it has happened! I have committed to something and actually followed through with it... haha! I have moved to Palo Alto, California and am having a great time so far. My first weekend was packed with lots of fun, unfortunately I was sick the first 3 days I was in Cali but I got better relatively quick. On Friday night Danen and I went to the first pre-season game of the San Francisco 49'ers! It was so much fun, we had great seats... and it wasn't as cold as I had anticipated. Danen laughed at me all night long wearing a long sleeve shirt, a tee-shirt, a sweat shirt, and topped it off with a scarf and it was the middle of August! But we live in the Bay area so it is always cool at night here! Saturday we went and saw The Time Traveler's Wife which I absolutely loved, we deemed it fair to see the ultimate chick flick due to the fact that we went to a football game the nigh before! I am posting some pics. of my house in East Palo Alto (EPA, also known as the ghetto of the Bay area.) Please don't google it... Holly will not like the stories she will read! haha! Enjoy the pics everyone! I will start blogging more now that I have left dear Happy Valley, I promise! yeah... Cali's expensive... i need a job quickly! haha
The lovely look on my face after purchasing my very 1st tank of California's Gasoline... yikes!
(mine's the top bunk!)
Our lovely little townhome!

OK... I have officially become the worst blogger in the history of blogging, but I will try to make up for that now! I graduated from the University of Utah on May 9,2009 with my Bachelors degree in International Studies. (Although technically I will not receive my diploma until August because I am finishing 2 classes this summer.) It was so fun to have all of my family come to town for the big day! It was almost surreal to walk and hear my name called out in the Huntsman Center.. I am official an adult now! Time to grow up and get a real job, but I couldn't do that without one last spur-of-the-moment trip to Europe (of which I'll blog about next!)
