Grey's Anatomy

So I have yet found another series to get myself addicted to. We finally got all caught up on 24...which totally sucks cuz now we have to wait until January until the new season; however, we managed to find our way to another series to get attached to. I had been trying to get Dustin to watch all the seasons of Grey's Anatomy with me forevvver now but he never would. Well, because we would always just watch 24 instead. But now since I have his sister to watch it with...I can watch it with or without him!! :) Yet, somehow I knew he would eventually get sucked into it...and I have almost succeeded!! Me and Trish watch a couple episodes every night and he always ends up on the couch by the end of the episode. Ha, it will only be time before he gets completely sucked into it. Ya! haha...anyway...this is my first time seeing all the episodes of Grey's anatomy and I am absolutely LOVING it!! ahh, i just had to write about it. It's just soo good! I highly recommend it!

When it rains, it poors

They really do mean it when they say "when it rains, it poors"! But hey, it can only get better from here right?? Yeah, well I hope so! We have done nothing but job hunt all week long and still nothing. I do not know what the deal is with our luck...this has never happened before! I have never gone a week without getting a job. In fact, this is the first time I have not had a job since before I got my first job at Cracker Barrel. We are slowly running out of options. All we can really do is keep our positive attitudes and keep trying to get something, anything. I blame ourselves for deciding to take that pest control job. If we had just decided to come back to Utah after the wedding we would both be at our normal jobs..working full time and everything would be just dandy! Well, I guess you live and you learn. We lived, and now we are definitely learning. Note to self: Don't trust the too good to be true kind of jobs. Chances are they are too good to be true. Unless, you are just a really good salesman, then it's another story.

Well, as a wise woman once said...If you don't have a plan don't have a plan. I guess it's a good thing we are thinkin about a plan B. Along with counting down the days until September so we can just be back in Provo and to the normal lives we live...sick of all the state hopping around. I will be so ready to get in one place and stay there!!

And might I add, it has been a minimum of 110-115 degrees out here all week! I don't know how I am going to live with this heat the rest of the Summer!! Everyday by the end of the day...I am completely dehydrated!! It is sooo hot! Oh, how I miss the crazy as that sounds..!

How about some rain??

Too much driving.

Well we packed up all our stuff as soon as we had made a decision to take off for Mesa, Arizona. We got in late late Friday night. The drive took absolutely forevvvvver; probably because I had to do all the driving since Dustin had lost his wallet and couldn't exactly legally drive. Well because of him losing his wallet we had to make an extra trip down to Las Cruces, New Mexico so he could get himself a new drivers license so he could get a job. So this afternoon we left from Mesa to Las Cruces and it once again drug on because I was the only one driving. Luckily the drive wasn't 12 hours this time, only 6. :) Ok--so this is the funny part. We get to Las Cruces, visit with his family for a while and then they give him a huge pack of mail and of of the packages in the mail was....HIS WALLET! ha. yep, we drove all the way down here so he could get himself a new drivers license...and well now he has it! So we made an extra trip for nothing....BUT now we get to just visit with his family for a day instead of sitting in at the DMV all morning that's the good part. :) We also got our Official Marriage certificate in the mail as well! woo!! We are finally OFFICIAL! On file and everything!!....wish I could get my name changed already...but I will be more patient and just wait for Utah.

Well besides all that traveling stuff, things are going much better already. Dustin and I spent the whole day job hunting Saturday and Dustin has an interview on Wednesday with Dillard's so we will see how that goes. I haven't had any luck quite yet...but I still have a couple applications to fill out as well. I am planning on making some phone calls by Tuesday and see where that gets me. The area we are in Mesa is soo great. We love it. There are soo many different job opportunities that we should be able to find a job in no time.

Well Dustin got lucky enough to spend the last hours of Father's Day with his Father. It was good to see them. I was really bummed I didn't get to spend Father's Day with my Father but I guess that's what I get for living so freakin' far away from him. :( They were all in Florida and I am sure enjoying the amazing weather in Panama City. I am very quite jealous. I am sure he still had a great Father's Day...and all you other father's out there...Happy Father's Day!!

Gas Prices! suck...

So, I just found out that Sacramento, California has the highest gas prices in the Nation! ...and we just so happen to be living here. Wow. We just drove past a gas station that was 4.75 a gallon! That's even 25 cents more than the one right by our apartment! Man, it sure is a good thing we are heading to Arizona tomorrow!!

Anyway, that was just my spill about Gas Prices in Sac Town!

Everybody's doing it...

Hey ya'll! SO, I have recently noticed that blog spot seems to be the new thing! Well, at least for couples that have just recently been married; so we thought we would try it out just like everybody else! Then we can find out what this is all about...

Where do I even begin?? Well here is a little bit about the new Brandons'! I am Jessi, 21 years old, from Lawrenceville, Georgia. Dustin who is 22, and will be 23 in March is from Las Cruces, New Mexico. Yes, very different places in which we both grew up in, but somehow we managed to find each other! We just got married on May 10th of this year in the San Diego, California temple. The wedding was beautiful and there could not have been a better day for it. We spent the reception in La Jolla Cove and enjoyed all the time we spent with our families. It was so good for all of us to be together again! We went on a Carnival Cruise to Mexico. We stopped in Cabo San Lucas and the Ensenada. The whole week was perfect and we are already wanting to go on another cruise! I love him so very much and am so blessed to call him my Husband!

The Elation!

Amazing Cabo!

Interesting Ensenada!

La Bufadora!

La Jolla Shores, California!

Dustin and I have spent the remainder of the month in Sacramento, California for his job. He was working for Bell Pest Control, but unfortunately it didn't work out for us, so we are soon moving to Mesa, Arizona to spend the remainder of the Summer before we have to head back to Provo in September.

Downtown Sac!

Me and Becca...the only friend I had in Sacramento! ha

California, State Capitol!

Dustin is attending BYU and so we will be stuck in Utah for the next few years of our lives. Not so bad, I am finally getting used to the idea of Utah. :) He is majoring in computer science for the time being and are both hoping it will stay that way. I will hopefully be attending real estate school in Utah with my sister in-law come this fall. I don't exactly know how that will turn out but I thought I might as well give it a shot.

We are both very excited to get settled in somewhere more permanent and enjoy every moment we spend together. We are having so much fun being married and starting our lives together! Though, nothing is ever sure is worth it!
