It's Off to Work We Go

So it's been almost a month since we last posted! I had no idea. I still haven't been able to get Kevin to post and I now have a job. For the past month and a half, I've been working at a local Victoria's Secret Store. I know, I know. I have a degree and I want to work at a lingerie store? The thing is I worked at VS in Oklahoma City this summer and I had a great time. Although I love PR (what I majored in during my five years of college), I think that retail management is a better career for me in the short term. My career plans dramatically changed when I decided to marry Kevin, and when we decided to live in Provo rather than move to Chicago.

But seriously, I love my job. It's so much more interesting than a desk job because I get to work with so many people. There's so many different tasks and I often get to do them all in the same day. With retail, things are always changing, and I work for one of the largest companies and biggest brands in the entire world. I've worked at three different stores in three different states. I love that wherever I go, there will be a Victoria's Secret - and that I'm part of such a large, worldwide family of Victoria's Secret Angels!!

So I keep busy with work, our laundry, cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc. and Kevin still works at the Provo City Library. He's busy as ever there and was recently in a commercial for the library (featured on iProvo, or channel 17 if you have comcast). He doesn't have a speaking role, but you can see him at the front of the line in one scene and he's sitting at the circulation desk in another. I'm so proud of him for working so hard - if it weren't for him we wouldn't have health insurance. We don't always get to see each other as much as we'd like, and our schedules don't always match up, but we are still happy and still madly in love. Today I was able to stop by the library during Kevin's break and spend a few minutes with him during a day when we wouldn't have seen each other for 12 1/2 hours!

So stop by Victoria's Secret at the Riverwoods or the Provo City library because that's usually where we are!!
