Happy 22!

Yes, I am now officially 22 years old....I still can't figure out where the time has gone! It was such a good day though. I took the whole weekend off from work, which is always a nice break. That morning Clint made me breakfast in bed, we open presents and decorated out Christmas tree. Then we headed down to Salt Lake. We went to the SLC temple and did a live session, very cool, loved it. Our friends met up with us after that and we ate dinner at The Gardens and walked around Temple Sqare. The new snow made everything so beautiful. Sunday we went to my parents and they made the best steak and potato dinner with cake and ice cream for dessert. It's all over now and a year away, but December 1 will come again!

I know I've been a slacker!!

Finally, an update on my life! I know I have been a slacker on keeping my blog updated, but things are finally starting to settle down a bit. Here are pics from the last couple months! I will get more soon! (Halloween pics to come, they are on my friends camera)

Girls trip to Florida!

I thought this baby octopus was pretty cute until it bit me!

Elite Gym with the friends...

Fireball on the inside...

You Are a Jam Cookie

On the outside, you project a straight-laced, innocent vibe.
But on the inside, you're complex, exotic, and full of flavor.

This is a shout-out to my little bro. who is currently serving a mission in Bogata Columbia! His birthday is September 11 and he isn't a teenager anymore...big 20 here we come! And no worries bro. you won't have to hear about 9/11 this year being out of the country and all :) We have so many good memories together and I will forever consider him one of my best friends. Remember the London/Scotland trip...loved it, want to go back so bad! The late night talks with Dad, good times. Driving to good old Weber High together and being late everyother day because I just could not wake up on time. Double dates with Clint and Jed...and eventually Kelli. Talking about your main woman (Tayler, miss her) until all hours of the night. Taking you rock climbing and changing your life forever :) Playing games and watching you win all the time....I know I'm the worst loser! Getting our endowments out together. Anyway the list could go on for days, but I just want him to know that I love him to death and I hope, even though far away, that he knows we are all thinking of him! HAPPY BIRHDAY DAN!

London Tower Bridge...the UK rocks!

Small cars....just my size.

The night we got our endowments out.....

Labor Day get-away

This last weekend we packed up the car and headed to good old Bear Lake. Clint's fam. had rented a house that slept like 20 people...crazy! It was really fun, playing games with the cousins, hittn' up Pickleville Playhouse, skiing, playing on the waverunners, and my new favorite, rope swinging at Lake Bloomington. If you haven't been there it's like a 45 min drive from the Pickleville Playhouse. You head up a curvey dirt road up through the mountains, it's a breath taking drive I must say. But the lake itself is even better! It's completely clear, you can see the bottom of the lake where ever you stand. It's a glacier fed lake, and normally there is still snow and ice on one of it's rocky sides. But since it has been such a hot summer there was no ice to be found. We were really surprised! Whoever put in the rope swing, genius. It's a blast, if you get the chance, go!

I love Bear Lake, it's like the perfect blue!

Me and my sweetheart!
To jump or not to jump, that is the question.

I love the cliffs that surround this lake, they are amazing

Here I go....rope swings rock!

The new dew

For the last few weeks I have been so envious of a few of my dear friends when they chopped and sported a new dew. I hate to be the one who follows the crowd, but the whole 'grow my hair out long' just wasn't making the cut!

On my trip to the salon my intentions were a trim and color change. I kept telling my self I wanted long hair....what do I really know? Looking in the mirror at my drab due I knew it had to go. And it went! And I love the short hair! Just walking out of the salon I felt like a new person with enough confidence to conquer the world. Thanks Cass for fixn' me up!

Sportn' the side view...I love it!

Picture happy....

Longboarding Fools...

We have a longboard! Clint and I have been longboarding several times with different friends, but just recently got one of our own. Thanks to our good friend Jared Rawlings, who designed and made our longboard. He does an awesome job and is working on getting a website set up so the whole world can see his boards. 'Verano' is the name, meaning summer, it totally rocks!

Last night we had an FHE with our marrieds ward. We had Olympics night and our team wore bandanas. We looked pretty fearsome if I do say so my self. After that we went with our friends Heather and Jordan Avner to hit the hills up for some good longboarding. WSU is a great place to go, we pretty much stayed on these two grass rollers. Pick up speed on the cement and once you hit the grass lean back because you are in for a ride! A few grass stains never hurt anyone anyways!

a pile of memories...

From Lake Powell to Bear Lake...

It took two trips, but between water skiing and wake boarding reading suddenly became one of my priorities. Dan Brown keeps you intrigued and interested from the very first page. The prequel to the Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons is sure to keep your attention until the very end!

I loved it and couldn't put it down! Robert Langdon takes you on a ride as he gets dragged along on an adventure he wasn't looking for. Yes, it took two weeks, but balancing being in the water (which I love) and reading this book became quite the task! Clint and I read it together on our fun filled vacations and would recommend this 700 page book to anyone who is in for a little suspense!
