Cooking Adventure!

So Nate and I were thinking of something to eat. He suggested omlets. It sounded great and he said that he had a better way of cooking them instead of a frying pan. Reluctantly I said ok. He said that all you have to do is put your ingredients in a ziploc bag and then put it in bowling water. It cooks them perfectly. Still a little skeptical, I started making my omlet. We realized after cracking our eggs that we didn't have enough. So I had to run to the store and I just thought to get 18 eggs instead of 12, which actually will come in handy (keep reading to find why). So I come back and we finish cracking our eggs. We each put 6 eggs in our bags (which proved to be way to many). As Nate was so nicely mixing his he accidentally dropped his bag, that was not closed, so 6 eggs ended up on the floor. We cleaned that up, cracked 6 more eggs and started to boil our omlets. After about ten minutes we checked our omlets and noticed that Nates bag was leaking and he lost just about half his omlet in the boiling water. After bagging the omlets in a second bag, mine seemed to take forever to cook, but finally was finished. To my surprise they actually tasted really good. Thanks Nate for giving me a great cooking adventure. So the moral of the story is buy 18 eggs instead of 12.

Back to school!

Well it's official. I am once again a college student. Today was my first day of class at the University of Phoenix. As you all probably know, I started working there at the end of July. Let me just say that this is a major adjustment for me. I'm used to being outside on the go every day, not stuck in a big room with a bunch of cubicles. It's been really challenging to just sit in the same chair all day long. Honestly, I really don't like it. Darn this bad housing market right now. I've realized how much I really do miss being a superintendent. It was such an awesome job. I think I would've done that forever if it just wasn't so unstable. Oh well, moving on. This job has it's perks. One of them, and probably the biggest one, is that I get free tuition for school. Obviously since I haven't finished yet, this is huge for me. All the classes are online, I do one class at a time, and each class lasts five weeks long. I'm working on my criminal justice degree to help me in my police officer job pursuit. The plan is to hit it as hard as I can as long as I'm working there. After a couple of classes, I can double up and take two at a time and finish at a much faster pace. Meanwhile, I will continue to apply to different PD jobs and if I get one, then I'll take it. Most departments give tuition reimbursement so if I do get a job somewhere, I'll continue to take classes. A little further in the future I hope to get a job with the FBI/CIA, there's jobs at either agency that I think I would enjoy. I was on their websites today to see what their requirements are. I started to get really excited just knowing that I'm actually starting in the right direction with beginning classes today. It's going to be a long road, but I'm up for it. Class today wasn't bad. They start us off pretty easy. I'll keep you updated as classes go on. Wish me luck!

Old Job, New Job

Moving down here has been a lot of fun, but there are things that I do miss. My family, friends, school, and my job. I had the best job at Allyse's Bridal. It was so much fun, I worked with the best girls, and I had the best manager EVER! Before I left I took pictures with everyone because I knew that I was going to miss them. So to all of them I Love ya!! I have started a new job and it is completely different than what I have done in the past. I now work at U.S.A Youth Fitness Center coaching gymnastics. I am really having a lot of fun working here. As you can see in the picture, I get to go to work in a t-shirt, basketball shorts, and bare feet!! It has been really great not to have to worry so much about what to wear. But I am missing getting ready for the day and dressing in professional clothes. The girls that I coach are really fun to be around even though sometimes their attention span is non-exsistent. Although I love coaching, I am looking for another job because I work Mon-Thur nights and rarely get to see Nate. I will let you know how it goes. :)

Finally in Arizona

We are both, finally here in Arizona. We were able to find someone to rent our place so I packed up everything and Nate came home on Aug. 29 and we packed the truck then left. We got to our new place on the 31st. So now we are here living in Mesa, Arizona and are so excited. Nate is working at the Universtiy of Phoenix, and I am working part time at U.S.A gymnastics. I get to teach levels one, two, and three. And the ages are from 5-12. I'm really excited! If I can't get as many hours at the gym then I want, then I will be looking for another job. Our house is so cute and I am so excited to be living here. It is in a great area and we are a couple of houses down from Nik and Annessa, (Noah's Twin brother and family). We are also only fifteen minutes away from Noah and Giselle. We are excited to see what opportunities this move will bring. And we also want to thank everyone who helped us move, we really appreciate it. As a New September Resolution, or whatever, I, Celeste Fisher, promise to blog so much more than our lame every couple of month blogs. We Love You ALL!!
P.S. I will post more pictures once we have decorated and unpacked everything. Also, just in case you were wondering, those are real Palm trees right in our backyard. just FYI :)
