Labor of Love

Thanks Catherine for making the cookies for me to decorate! I know they took a while to make, but they were delicious. They only took 6 hours to decorate, too! Now I know why bakeries charge and arm and a leg for one! Our Labor of love for Gretchen and her baby girl!

Vegas/ St. George

On Friday morning Londyn and I caught a 7am flight to Las Vegas to meet up w/ my parents. (this is her playing on the little table and chairs by our gate.) My mom and dad flew to Vegas on Thursday and stayed at the Paris hotel. We flew down so we could spend the day w/ them and drive to St. George w/ them, instead of waiting until 6:00 when Cody got off work to drive down with him. Kind-of silly I know, but it was worth it. It was a fun day.

These pics are at the mall in St. George.

And this one is at my brother's game. I liked her upside down sunglasses! And just so you know it was freezing in St. George. Not as cold as Salt Lake, but still way too cold!

A change in direction

Just to give everybody a heads up: after much debate (and way too many last minute business trips) I've decided to shift gears and pursue a new career direction. Starting in a few weeks I'll begin work as a User Interface Designer for:

Backcountry is one the premier online retailers of outdoor gear and apparel, and is well known for their core nature and commitment to their customers. They have a great company, really sharp people, an awesome culture and a really flat management style that encourages employees to take risks and develop new programs and processes. I have really enjoyed my time at AMEDICA, but feel that I need to pursue more creative avenues and get into a more predictable schedule. I'm really excited for this new opportunity and a chance to work for a company that is so tied to the things I love. I'll keep everyone posted on how it goes.

Here's a little more info on what a UI designer does, and the principles of UI design.
