Tips on how to Ship Your things

Our least favorite time of day working in the shop was 4:00 pm when we had to have all the jewelry cleaned, packaged and in the box to send to the UPS man.  My mom liked to made sure that we used up all our working time right to the last minute.  We would send Nicole off to meet the UPS man (because she knew how to get there FAST!)  While we waited anxiously hoping that the package got there in time.  More often than not, we were able to make it in time!  When we missed the UPS man…that was not a good moment!!!

What I have learned about myself moving to Canada!

Tales of the Shop:

My family and I recently moved to Canada, and I would like to tell you a couple of things of what I learned about myself:

1.  I am a pack rat and keep all things that are of sentimental value, which led me to be able to fill a 26 foot truck!

2.  When I get nervous I have a hard time sleeping at night.  Luckily this only happened the night before we crossed the Canadian border.

3.  I am not a very good solo driver, especially if there are kids involved, which there always is:)

4.  No matter where I go there are good people everywhere who are willing to help. Read more

Exercising – A Family Activity:)

My parents love exercising.  They make it a priority to exercise everyday.  This began at a young age, my mom would put in her current aerobic video which happened to be Homestretch with Lee and Ali and we would be running around her while she was exercising.

Later on we would go to the rec center at Snow College and go swimming, play tennis, or racquetball.  As we got older we learned how to play tennis and afterwards get a Hogi Yogi ice-cream, because we deserved to gain back those calories that we just burned:)  We would walk our beautiful dog Queenie every day, and on Sundays we always take our family walk around the massive huge block in Spanish Fork, UT
