I have a job!!!

Well can I just tell you how busy I have been. I was extended a position last Friday as a Fitness Specialist for a company called Corporate Fitness Works!! I interviewed for this position the whole month of may. I had three interviews and finally they extended the position to me. We were so excited!! Now since Jordan works in Springfield, and I work in Rockville Maryland we were in a bit of a pickle when it came down to the car...So we got a new one!!! Yayyyy We went car shopping all day last Saturday and picked out a car. Its a Dodge Caliber and I just love it!! Its sorta like a mini SUV. It gets good gas mileage and it was in our price range. I started work on Monday. I was getting trained to I had to go to all of our fitness centers in the region. I went to Sprint Center in Reston, VA then I went to Census in Suitland, Maryland. Then finally I went to Westat in Rockville Maryland where I will be staying for now on. It has been really fun so far. Now I'm sure you are all wondering what does a fitness specialist do? Well I will tell you...

Our company contracts with other companies. For example I am working at Westat which is a Research company. All the employee's of Westat can join our fitness center which is located in there office building. So I teach classes, do personalized exercise programs, health consultations, health interviews, health promotion programs, everything to get them ready to join our facility. I work with two other fitness specialist and we pretty much run the center and keep everything up so its looking nice and all that other great stuff. Its really a fun job. I get to do exactly what I wanted! My favorite classes in school are the ones that prepared me for this job. I was thinking right after I received the position how much BYU-Idaho prepared me for the real world. I had so many opportunities to get real world experience. During the interview process they asked a lot of questions related to experiences that I have had in the Health field. Luckily BYU-Idaho gave me all of those experience that I was able to tell them about. I am so thankful that I was able to go to a University that allowed me to go outside of my comfort zone and have to be the leader many times in my college career. I'm pretty sure I complained about it often but now looking back if I didn't have those experiences I probably would not have this job.

Anyway so Jordan and I are doing great!!! Traffic is kinda annoying but I get to drive a cute car! :) that makes up for it! haha

So that's my update for now. Hopefully we will be doing something fun for Memorial Day and I can post about that. We haven't really made plans yet. Oh yeah and I will post some pictures of our new car soon!

Front Row...Heck Yeah!

We went to an O's game last weekend. Orioles vs. Red Sox. It was a good one above was where we originally sat. Really good seats and a great view of the baseball diamond, but then we upgraded to these.....

If you look really closely and know what my parents look like you can see my dad, and mom in the second row. Jenney is down there too but you cant really see her from this picture. This is a picture we took from our original seats two decks above them. (we zoomed in a ton of course)

Our awesome next door neighbor offered us her amazing seats for the Orioles vs Red Sox game. We love going to baseball games especially when we get to sit in there seats. So she got us all tickets and we all went on Saturday night. We were really excited to go, it was a great day and the Red Sox were in town. We root for the O's now since we have lived in Maryland for almost 11 years. We used to root for Boston but then we felt we were betraying our home team!

So this is how it happened...We arrived at Camden yards at about 6:30 for a 7:05 game. We decided we would eat first before the game started. Of course we had to go to Boogs BBQ our favorite spot at Camden yards! So we were walking to go find a table, my dad and Jordan were in front of my mom, Jenney, and me when I hear a lady say excuse me a few times. I turn around and she asked us if it was just us three and I told her that there was two more in front of us and two more coming. She sighed and kinda was like ohh...then my mom asked why? She said oh well my friend isn't feeling well and we are going to go home and we wanted to give our tickets to some one...then she goes on to say they are front row seats right behind home plate!! I was like uhh I'll take them. She didn't want any money or anything she just didn't want them to go to waste. So we took the tickets. I ran over to tell me dad and he was like Oh my gosh seriously. We all obviously wanted to sit in those seats so we decided to be fair....since my dad bought all of us tickets in the first place we decided to take shifts. haha yes only the Premont family would actually split up the time so we can all get a change to sit there. My mom, dad and Jenney took the first shift. Then Jordan and I switched at the top of the 5th inning. Then Carole Ann and Jon came at the bottom of the 7th. And my dad stayed there the whole game.

It was a blast!!! It is a totally different ball game being so close to the players and all! My fav player Nick Markais hit a home run along with Luke Scott and some others! It was pretty cool!

This is Nick...I'm pretty sure we are on first name bases now since I sat right behind him and cheered for him!!!

After the game!
