Snowboarding!

Sundance Snowboarding
Well I got a pass to sundance and I went for the first time yesterday. I am so sore today! We went for 4 hours and my body is not used to this. But it was a blast. I went with my friend Greg. 

Me and Greg

So freezing cold!

Gingerbread House Extravaganza!

Me and Derek, and Heidi and Josh made some cute gingerbread houses! I've been wanting to do it for a while and they came out pretty good.  We made gingerbread houses and watched elf.  A very fun night :)

Dinner Time..

Katie, Amber and I (these crazy girls who I love)
Me and Amber got new dishes from Ikea and decided to throw a dinner party.  We invited some guests and had a blast. This house full of people is amazing and I am grateful that I live here. I have some really quality friends. I dyed my hair dark can you tell??

Brant, Phil, Erik, Amber Katie, Me, Hiedi, and Josh (almost all of the gang- missing Marie and Cort and James)

Such fun times...with our fancy wine glasses

Temple Square


It's that time of year.  I went to temple square with my friend Jake and his family.  We went to see the Christmas devotional and it was amazing.  And we happened to run into Julie (imagine that!)  It was really fun to see her.  She looks great and was nervous that night because she didnt know if she was going to go outbound. 

The conference center looked amazing!

Sister Higa (Julies comp from Brazil, she is so cute)

Me and Jake

What a photographer he is...everything looked beautiful that night

me being goofy...




It was a really fun night. We just got an email from Julie and she is going to Billings Montana! Get ready for the cold weather.  I am so grateful for a living prophet today. It was amazing that I had the experience to go and see the temple and the living apostles today.  Good Sunday.

Tucker's in Town...

 What a fun week!  Becky and Tucker, Mom and Dad and Me and Jake all went to Cassie's new house this last week.  You know we did the usual, sat around and ate.  Went on the occasional walk.  I did a few assemblies up in Salt lake this week as well. 
Me and the little man (Tuckerino)

Refinishing our entertainment system...

We needed an entertainment system and our friends had a ghetto one for free so we decided to sand it and paint it. With the help of everyone we refinished it.  Me and Marie painted it.
There's lovely Marie

Me in my painting clothes, gotta love those green pants I used to think were so cute, what was i thinking?



And here is the finished product. I am really good at just asking people to help me, but I am starting to see why doing it yourself is rewarding...


Four Wheeling...

Me and Katie, Cody and Logan all went to the Spanish Fork Canyon and went four wheeling. It was a blast. Cody and Logan are best friends and me and Katie are best friends so it was fun all being together. The weather was perfect and the colors were amazing!


Me and Katie Checkin' each other out

Me and Cody...I was a little scared it was his first time, but he did really good.

Katie and Logan, beautiful trees!

Katie and Logan

Life is all about Best Friends who make you happy :)


Me and Cody..


On of our fun adventures this fall.  We have not been doing as much, just busy with work, but they will continue once the snow is here!  I just got a pass to Sundance so i am going to be a great snowboarder!

On the road...

Me and Marie driving around to schools to do internet safety presentations.  You know, saving one kid at a time from the dangers on the internet.  



On the Road, its starting to snow around here...

Second try...first try was at the ghetto hotel,  it smelled like a smokey dark funeral home so we said we were sick and needed to leave. And then went to a nicer hotel.  Not the best planning on my part.

Me and Marie, happy with our stay

Just eating at the local Mexican restaurant. 


So there are weeks when I am driving around a ton, and then others when I am in the office and just scheduling schools.

My new Snowboard

No biggie, just finally jumped on the bandwagon and am going to start getting into snowboarding....

Here is my sweet new board, I got a really great deal on it. 

Hiking the Y

Oh one of the wonderful joys of living in Provo is hiking the Y :)  I remember the first time I hiked the Y, Julie and I were going out to visit Becky when we were younger and out of shape, or just change in elevation.   We just got off the plane and becky said  "oh we are just going on a fun hike".  Man we took a few short cuts and I was really feeling it.  I was so light headed and was going to faint. 

How things have changed. Now I love hiking.  So me and my friend Jeremy decided to hike it today.  It was Jeremy's first time. 

Looking down at the Y

Me :)

Jeremy taking it all in...

Morning Hike...

 Morning Hike at Sundance...

The beauty of living in Utah is that everything is so close and so beautiful!  With the flexibility of my job right now I can go hiking in the mornings if i have a long day the previous day.  So this morning I woke up and went to Sundance and just went on a quick 4 mile hike. I love it!  Here are a few pictures!



So Pretty....and perfect temperature!  Like 65

Yes me in the morning with no makeup....so attractive...kind of a funny smile...



Here's a video that captures it better :)
