Day 6, 7, 8 and 9

Wow can you say slacker...
I missed 3 days on this picture challenge
so now it is time for catch up.

Day 6: A photo that makes you laugh

This is Braxton.
He cracks me up.
He thinks he is a serious hunter
just like his daddy.
Day 7: A photo of someone you love

How about of 2 people I love?
These are my two best friends
Kami and Kassidy.
Love them!
Day 8: A photo of your favorite band/musician

If you don't know who this is,
I am not sure if we can be friends.
Day 9: A photo of your family

This photo is about a year and a half old.
There is a new little girl
(notice Shalane, front right)
Then Jess is expecting a girl
and Amanda is expecting twin girls.

Yeah my family is huge!

Day 5

A photo of yourself

Hmmm should I do recent?
Or old?
Or when I was little?
Too many options!

So I'll just go with this one for today

I showed this picture before
but it is one of my favorites!

I was Madonna from her Like a Virgin video
for a rally we had with Verizon in Las Vegas.

My mom helped me make my awesome tutu
and I had so much fun this night!
Really I would wear that tutu all the time
if it were back in fashion!

Have a great weekend blends!

See you tomorrow.

The 4th day

A photo of the last place you went on holiday

Oh well doesn't that sound fancy?

The last place I went on holiday was
Sweet Home Alabama!
To see my wonderful sister and her cute family!

Katie, Kenzie, Jenny and Me
enjoying some girl time while
Mariann took Ethan to the Dr.

Miss you guys!
I will come visit soon!

Day 3

A photo that makes you happy

The following photo not only makes me happy
but cracks me up!

Please note the following things:
  • I am wearing 3 shades of blue
  • Kassidy's face
  • Our creative use of fruits and veggies

I think it is safe to say that
Kassidy would kill me for posting this picture!
Good thing she doesn't ready this blog!

Love you Kass!

This photo was taken shortly after I had moved to Cedar.
It was the first big snowfall since I was living there,
so as soon as I got home from work Kassidy and I
decided we needed a snowman in our yard.

The snow was so powdery so it wouldn't pack
and we were freezing by the time we were done,
but it was so much fun!

Day 2

A photo of yourself a year ago

Ok so this one was hard.
Because, as most of you know,
last year at this time I was living on St Thomas!
(you sick of hearing about that yet? Because I talk about it a lot, sorry)

And I have A LOT of pictures from there.
So narrowing it down was difficult.
But here goes:

Brynne and I on Virgin Gorda
This was taken on part of our tour of The Baths
right before we came around to Devils Bay.
More pictures here.

As much as I love Utah
and snow and winter
and everything we have here,
I wouldn't mind going back and seeing this again.

30 day Photo Challenge

So I am trying out this little challenge

For 30 days you post a different picture that falls under the category
then give maybe a little story with it.

I will have to make a few changes, but I think it sound fun!

Day 1: Your Facebook Profile Picture

It was Halloween
I was carving pumpkins
Does it need any more explanation?

See you tomorrow for day 2!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Last week I woke up to a text message from my singles ward.
That night they were holding a costume party for Halloween!

I love dressing up!

Only problem my original costume idea was maybe not church appropriate...
(it was better then years past, but shorts and fishnets...probably not)

So I had to think of something fast!

I went to the fabric store and picked up a few different patterns
then recruited my mom to help.

My ultimate goal:
Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas

My mom is A-MAZ-ING
and made this:

Not only did it turn out great
but I won Best Costume at the activity!
(she made both these costumes in just a few hours)

Thanks again Mom!
You are awesome!


It was so fun to get away to St George a few weeks ago!

Angie and I went down Friday to attend the
What Woman Want Expo.
They do this twice a year and I love it!

After that we met up with Bethany for sushi.
I hadn't had any since St Thomas
when my friend Sam invited us to the Ritz
and made us so many delicious rolls!
I love sushi so it was so good to have some again!

The next day my mom and Amanda came down
and we all shopped until we dropped!
(literally...none of us wanted to walk another step)

Then that night we went to THRILLER!!!

Odyssey dance theater is so good
and I love watching them any chance I get.

One of my favorite parts of the night was seeing my friend Karolann.

Each year dancers are selected to mingle/frighten the crowd before and after the show
and they also get to join in on the final dance of the night.

She did so good! 
It was so fun to see her dancing as a professional
after being on drill team with her years ago.

All and all it was a great weekend!
