Simple Incredible!

Eventful Weekend

Well we have finally made friends in Clovis, New Mexico and it is so exciting. Friday night we went to the movies with this girl named Crystal, who works at the Buckle with Sean and her boyfriend Jesse, who owns a part of a sport store in the mall. Then Saturday Sean and I woke up early and we were very productive. We made breakfast together, deep cleaned our house, and then washed my car inside and out. Then later that night we went to Jesse and Bobby's softball game ( Bobby owns the sports store in the mall) which was really fun, but the game did not even start until 11 pm, which is way past my bed time. You know you live in a small town when you have only lived here 4 months and knew about 5 people at the softball park. Then Sunday, we went to church and had a potluck dinner afterwards, then later that night we watched wrestlemania. Lately, Sean has been addicted to wrestling. Anytime I am watching tv, he just goes to the computer and watches wrestling. Anyway it was a lot of fun meeting new people hearing about their background. The Lord works in mysterious ways and sometimes he puts us in places we necessarily don't want to be, but teaches us very important lessons.

Spring Time and Tanning

The past couple of days have felt so amazing outside. Yesterday it was 82 outside and today it was 81. Oh how I love it being warm outside, but that means that I get to start wearing shorts to work. Well today as I was at working wearing my shorts this guy comes up to me and says "girl you need a tan" I guess that is a hint that I am pretty white. So tonight I went to this cute place in Clovis called Body Mystique Salon and signed up for a month of tanning. I love being tan, it makes me feel so much better, that sounds kind of silly. Anyway I am so excited about spring and being able to tan. Yeah!!!

The Best Decision of my Life

Yesterday, I was able to attend a baptism of a young 15 year old girl. I always love going to baptisms because it makes me think of my own. This one however really touched me because she was the same age as I was when I made the choice to be baptised. I sat there the whole time just staring at the girl just remembering back how I felt and what I was thinking. I am so grateful for that decision made 8 years age because my life has been blessed in so many ways for things I probably do not deserve. Life has not always been easy, but I have learned a great lesson and that is when you do what you are suppose to life runs a little smoother. How grateful I am for all of you who have helped me stay on the straight and narrow so that I was able to be with my husband and family forever.

A New Beginning

So here we are.... I am as we speak being forced into writing this blog. Sarah has a knife to my back and I have no option but to write this blog. In all actuallity she has threatened to take away my PS2 unless I help start this thing. I have also heard that this is the new "in" thing for married couples to do, so therefore it has begun.
Where do I begin? First of all we have moved to New Mexico about 4 months ago and let me tell you, I have NO idea why this place is called the "Land of Enchantment"! It has taken some adjustments but we are enjoying ourselves. Sarah is working at a car dealership in Portales, NM and I, of course, am still pursuing a career with The Buckle. All is well in the Russell household.
On the church side of things, Sarah has been called to the nursery which has created the sudden urge to have kids..... No comment. And I have the opportunity to be a ward missionary and just got called to the Sunday School teaching the 15-18 age group.
We will try to keep a regular post on this thing so ya'll can keep updated.....
