Burton Blender 2010 model - question!

Hey everyone!

I've been snowboarding for about 3 years or so, but I've only gone a couple times a year. The place where I've been going is only about an hour away from me so I'm hoping to get a season pass next year and have some fun! I'm tired of renting though and decided to get my own stuff. The problem is, I know very little about what would be best for me. I went shopping last week and went ahead and bought:
The Burton Blender 2010 model
Burton Citizen Bindings
And k2 boots

It was a great deal from what I can tell! But I'm having trouble finding much information/reviews about women's boards and such. The Burton board is a 148 and says it's mostly for park riding. I just figured out how to turn right going toeside a few weeks ago, so needless to say, I don't venture into the park at all (at least not yet!). Yeah yeah, I was the girl that would ride goofy instead of turning right on her toes...

But all that is to ask a few questions...will this board be alright to just go down the trails and such? I think it's the right size for me, I'm about 5'6 and 125lbs. The place I rented before ONLY goes by your height, so I'm not really sure what size board I was even using before..this one I can tell is shorter than what I've used though. But judging from what I've seen online, a 148 should work okay right?? So I'm COMPLETELY new and slightly overwhelmed by all this snowboard shopping and would love some advice. I don't need anything fancy, I just enjoy having fun out there and learning new things. Do you think this set will work for me? I'd like to find something that I won't really "outgrow" if that's possible, so I thought this might be a good compromise.
Thanks guys!

Sounds good

The setup you have sounds like it should be good for you, do you think you will progress into park eventually? If not you might want a board that is better for carving and less for the park.
