I am sitting here by the fire, watching tv, after a long day of cleaning. I havent had a relaxing day like this in a long time. A couple of weeks ago I had my last day at Del Sol after just over 5 years. What a bizarre feeling, but totally awesome. I dont start my new job until the second week of January so I have had 2 weeks to do NOTHING! I cant say enough how much Ive enjoyed it.
I think I could get really used to being a stay at home wife. Yesterday, I got up early, cleaned the house, met with the Comcast guy, went grocery shopping, did all the laundry, cooked a delicious meal, and had a great night! I feel so much more productive with all this time!
I was pretty sad to say goodbye to my friends at Del Sol, but so excited for the opportunity to work for this new company.
When you think about it, you spend more time with your co workers then you do with your family! I became really close to many at Del Sol and when I looked back through my pictures, I cant belive all the things that we've all been through together.
I have compiled a few (A LOT) photos of some of my favorite times at Del Sol. This is actually one of the longest posts Ive done. But, its 5 years of memories.
Every year Del Sol puts on a golf tournament for all the employees. They have a fantastic incentives(Money & Prizes) to make puts and golf well. We look so young!
Angi & I
On another year, I golfed with Ashley. Although she was much better then I am we often found our balls in the same place.
This is not a fun place to find both of your balls when doing a scramble.

Did you know you can rent books from the library for your Kindle? Its been a fantastic discovery for me.
Since we are on the topic of sports, another perk working for Del Sol was that I got to learn to play softball. I was terrible, but I finally found my nitch in softball at the very end when I got to fill in as catcher. I loved it! Its incredibly scary, but you get way better of a work out. You stand up and squat about a thousand times and you are more involved!
A few of us decided to do the MS bike ride up in Logan.
At the time I was...overweight. I was like 30 lbs heavier then I am right now. When I signed up for the bike ride (45 miles) I didnt even own a bike.
It was a great experience and I had the greatest time, and we raised money for MS.
thisvideo and we laughed and laughed. Its probably one of my favorite Youtube videos. If you dont want to watch the video, its a drunk man from Mexico at a party doing a hell of a dance. We couldnt help doing the dance to warm up before our flag football game!
This year was the year I had the no-good-very-awful bang cut.
We also got to go to the Bee's game as a company.
Nothing like a yummy hot dog, kettle corn, fireworks and great friends to make baseball bearable.
I always say its amazing what people will do for free stuff. I guess I now know! There was cow appreciate day where if you dressed like a cow you got a free meal!
The corporate office is in Utah, where I worked in the accounting department.
In winning the $2,500 you are supposed to visit one of our locations so I took my parents and Russell on a Caribbean cruise! Thanks Del Sol!
One of my favorite memories about Del Sol, is the companies love for Halloween. I love Halloween and dressing up!
They have pumpkin carving contest! My department won 2 years in a row!
Ale and I carving the first years winner, a fish bowl with real life fish!
Another year of Halloween with Heidi!
Del Sol also let us have a day off to play in the mountains! They would pay for us to either go sledding, skiing, or they would give us money to shop!
This year after I put in my 2 weeks at Del Sol we had our annual Christmas party. It was a good chance for me to spend one last fun time with all my friends. Our Christmas party this year was up at the Canyons. Angi and I were on the party planning committee so we went up early. It was fun to ride the ski lift up to the cabin.
Thanks to my friends for throwing me a going away lunch:
PS. On a side note, I credit Del Sol for helping me find my way to Russ. One of my co workers introduced me to one of her friends. We became really good friends after that, and she invited me to a summer dinner party she was throwing and guess who happened to be there? Mr Russell himself, the rest is history!
