Weston the EMT!

So Weston is doing EMT & looking for some clinical work with a nurse or doctor at an ER!  Are any of you affiliated with a hospital that Weston could team up with to do this?

Thanks so much!

Life is going so great!

Busy as usual, but we couldn't be happier!

We have some great goals for the next few months that are so fun to work on! We also will have had a guest every weekend in January! That's pretty sweet, huh? We love guests!

Grandmother was here the first weekend, Ann the second weekend, Momma last weekend & Weston's mom this weekend!  We call ourselves Hotel Brinkerhoff :)

We are upgrading our hotel to a 2 bedroom in the next few weeks!

It was so much fun having my mom here for 36 hours!  We took full advantage & barely slept a wink! It's been 2 months since I last saw her & it was so refreshing. I love her so much, she's my other best friend!

We enjoyed using that ClearPlay of ours to filter out the bad junk in movies!  My parents have one as well, so it was fun sharing movie lists with eachother.  Sunday night Spencie, Wes, Momma & I watched "Due Date" Oh my gosh. We were rolling on the floor. Best humor.  My mom got in Saturday afternoon. Friday night Wes & I watched 'Couragious.'  Wow, that movie was phenomonal, a little too much of it applied to some of my life experiences. & holy cow, I was bawling most of the movie. It was very powerful. I suggest you watch it!

That's the IMDB info on it!

Saturday morning we slept in. Thank heavens for Saturdays. I got all showered up & got Reni's gift ready, then headed over to Reni's baby shower.

I stayed there for a little while, but had to leave early to pick up the Momma at the airport in SLC.  It was a little bit of a freaky drive. It was raining, which people in Utah do NOT know how to drive in the rain, good heavens.  Grandmother would have had a heart attack if she was in the car with me!

Then Momma took us all to lunch at The Brick Oven. Yumm, thanks! 

Wes had prepared the most amazing meal, nom. Pork Loin, Carrots, potatoes & homemade rolls for Sunday dinner, which had marinated for a day. Delish. We stayed up Saturday night playing games & talking, it was so much fun!  Sunday Wes wanted to look at houses in TN for dreaming purposes! My mom's a real estate agent, so she pulled up her awesome website & we found some amazing homes that we may be able to afford in a few years. We're so excited.  Our goal is to move to TN next April! Hallelujah, is it bad to say I can't wait? Well, I can't, TN, lookout, I'm comin back to my stompin grounds!

Also, anyone in TN, we're looking for paramedic jobs for Weston next spring! Also, please pray for Wes. His paramedic application is due at the first of April, it's competitive due to demand.  Most people will have a lot more medical experience by the application date than he will.  But we're hopeful that he will be accepted as well!

This weekend Weston's mom is coming up this weekend & we'll be making more headway with wedding plans! It's fun! I love love!  Sadly, due to work, I won't be able to be there for the set-up or anything like that, but I've been able to give some opinions & boy it's so fun!  Melissa has her dress, we have SOME engagements done, but will be taking more this weekend, we're crossing our fingers the weather will cooperate! We had a blizzard this past weekend! It's a winter-wonderland in Provo! I'm praying there will be some fresh snow, but not actively be snowing when we go to take them!

I also have an awesome Relief Society activity this Saturday! I'll get to learn about hair-cuts(heaven knows I need assistance in this department), food storage/canning & some other important things to know. I am ecstatic for it!

Anyways, that's a little of what's going on! & I'm still pluggin away at my job that I totally love!


  1. Sounds like fun! Utah will miss you guys!

  2. Does Mama Joan know about this TN plan? Oh, the tears!

  3. hahah partially, but we just recently pinned down a tentative date, but yeah it will be lots of tears for us & them. But I miss my family a lot!

  4. You know Rachel, the last time Weston, actually Elder B., was in TN Mama Joan had the "wall of Weston." Guess now it will have to be the "wall of Weston & Rachel." I'll bet you miss your family, and I'm sure they miss you and are looking forward to having you closer.

  5. hahahha Janet! That's so funny! I have heard quite a bit about the wall of Weston! Yeah, we'll miss everyone here so bad. I just hope my "plans" to go back to TN area work...it all depends on job circumstances!

  6. It was fun to hear about your Mom's visit, Rachel, and of course, I LOVE your blog. It is great to hear all about how things are going and to know about your upcoming plans, in another year. I'll be home by then, too, and will look forward to that happy reunion! I enjoyed hearing about Hotel Brinkerhoff and all your other fun visitors. Wondering if they were as much in to the political scene as I was with you all! There has been some great news on that front, huh! I have a TV hooked up now so I've been watching a little of what is going on on all that now. February is looking like a really great month for the Mittster! Sure hope he pulls it off in Tennesee on Super Tuesday! Have a happy and productive week, Weston and Rachel! Love you lots! xxxooo
