Happy Birthdays!

October is filled with Birthdays on both sides of our family. We have Payton, Lucy, Grandma Billie, Joe, JD, and Shawn. So happy birthday to all on their respected days. To celebrate Shawn's birthday we started with dinner with his parents last night at Texas Roadhouse, yum. Shawn and I both had to work today, but we were off by 5:30. When Shawn got home we opened his gifts. He is now all set for the upcoming snowboarding season with a helmet, gloves, goggles, coat, and snow pants. All found at great deals, which all together cost less than the coat at regular price! Go me. After presents we went to Tucano's, the Brazilian restaurant at the Gateway. It was really good, topped off with a nummy snickers cheesecake. We've had some fun celebrating all the birthdays this month, we love you all! Happy Birthday Shawn, I love you! PS Our camera died so here is a picture of our first venture to Tucano's a few months ago

New Departments!

Unisan   Large Angler Broom
Exciting news on the working front in the Cochran home. Shawn has been promoted to full time and switched departments. He is now in the maintenance department instead of the food court. This means he won't come home smelling like old hot dogs and grease, yay! Now I can give him a hug when he comes home without saying "you smell like food court go shower and then I'll hug you." Not that I don't love my husband, I do, I just hate the smell of the food court. So now he gets to work more hours, work at his own pace, take his breaks when he wants, better schedule, and more money. Although this also means he has to open, cleaning the store before we open at 5 AM. LAME! 
I also applied for a new position, in the photo lab....and got it! I applied a few months ago and didn't get the position, but the manager had me do some cross training so I could help when they were busy. So I have been working over there a couple days a week for a month or so. When the new position came up the manager told me to apply and out of 4 applicants I got it! So now I will be in the photo lab from now on. I have a better manager, better hours, and better work. Plus our benefits will go up with Shawn working full time. So it's a win win all around for both of us.

We cracked

Yes its true we finally cracked under the peer pressure of the blogging nation. We have been meaning to do it for a while but never had the time. I finally found the time today. Shawn is at work, so I was trying to take my Sunday afternoon no avail. Shawn called and woke me up after only 30 minutes and I couldn't fall back to sleep. So here I am creating our blog. Any welcoming words or good suggestions for blogging would be greatly appreciated. I'll try and be better than my sisters who only post once a month. I get bored with them, so I'll TRY and update ours more than that. So here goes....
Shawn and I both took yesterday off from working at Costco for the Utah football game. We have season tickets in the MUSS. But after some thought we decided to spend our only Saturday off else where. We went up to Morgan with our friend Austin and went shot gun shooting. Austin lives up there so he took us to a neighbors house up on the mountain. We were completely by ourselves and had a blast. Although, we are all sore today. Lame. But we had fun none the less!
