the rest of Vegas

The rest of the trip was less eventful but still fun. Karlee and I had matchy matchy fishtail braids. We made PF Changs lettuce wraps. Karlee had dance, and we played. It was a lot of fun. I didn't want to come home.

ya never know

Please excuse the pictureless post. I'm supposed to be working right now (It's 7pm though so I don't feel too guilty), but this is blog worthy if you ask me. I've kind of been dying over the blog world lately. Confession...I'm a little jealous of all the bloggers who have tons of followers. I kind of want to be one of those, but I usually feel like only 2.5 people read my blogs. Well, I guest posted last week over on roommate Suzie's blog. Only 2 people commented which made me think less than 2.5 people actually read my blog. Roommate Suzie just called to inform me that 66 people viewed my post and in her words "you're way cooler than you think you are". Way to make a girl's day! I feel so popular even if it really is only for a minute. Thanks for reading people (whoever you are).

Vegas Adventures

Suzie and friends are running Vegas Ragnar this weekend so I came along for the ride. The ride just got a little more exciting when we got a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, Utah. Gracias to Cameron for knowing how to change a tire and doing it in 10 minutes. 45 minutes and 2 new tires later, we're back on the road. Let the adventures continue.

Guest Posting... about Winter

We all know I LOVE summer and HATE winter. I know I know. I live in Utah, and Utah has winter and snow...lots of snow. I'm guest posting over on Suzie's blog today on my plans for surviving winter and beating my seasonal anger disorder this year. Check it out here.

Missouri Catch Up Part 1...St. Louis 2

PICTURE POST...We left the zoo, got some lunch, and went to the Magic House (a discovery type place). There are so many pictures, but the kids are so dang cute.

playing in the sand table. karson wasn't too sure about it at first.

playing with huge blocks

these kids are so cute playing in the house



is this the cutest little doctor you've ever seen???

the kids and maybe the grownups loved this

karlee was a little freaked out

playing with sand

We had such a fun day at the zoo and Magic House. The kids were completely worn out which was perfect for the drive home to Cape.

Missouri Catch Up Part 1...St. Louis 1

Somehow I got back to Utah missing half the pictures from the Missouri trip. I finally have all the pictures so here's part 1 of the rest of the trip.

We flew into St. Louis in the late afternoon. It was too late to really do much so we went to dinner and took the kids swimming at the hotel.

We got up the next morning and went to the zoo. St. Louis has a really cool zoo, and it's free. We spent the morning seeing all the animals. The kids loved it although Karson's favorite part might have been chasing the birds.

this huge hippo was one of the first things we saw

Karson loved looking at the animals so close to him

Karlee was so excited to ride the carousel

We have practically the same picture of Jake and Karlee looking at the penguins over 2 years ago.

October=Breast Cancer Awareness=No Sugar

october is breast cancer awareness month
co-worker michelle and i have been pretty good about not eating sugar
it's already 3 days into the month
cancer (especially breast caner) has hit a little too close to home the past couple years
this post from homemade grits

what do all these things have to do with anything???

i started reading this random blog (homemade grits) through some other random blog i read. i mostly love everything about it. she's pretty healthy and i love that. she posted this post the other day and i was immediately inspired. cancer has hit way too close to home for me the past several years between friends, family of friends, and others fighting, surviving, and losing battles with cancer. i'm mostly good about not eating sugar, but in support of breast cancer awareness month and the inspiration from lesley, i'm done with sugar for the rest of the month. who's with me??? (don't worry that it's practically oct. 4...start now) and you might even see me sporting a little more pink this month.

BYU vs Utah State

The parentals are in town with another couple so we went to the BYU game last night. Co-worker Emily is a huge USU fan/BYU hater so it's been a fun week of trash talk. For most of the game (starting with a USU touchdown in the first 14 seconds) I thought we'd be getting payback this week. Somehow BYU got it together and scored 2 touchdowns at the last second. It was a beautiful night, intense game, good times with the parents, and it looks like Emily will be sporting BYU blue on Monday. Go Cougars!
