chelsea and jeff have been in northern california for a couple of years and haven't been to yosemite. dad, mom, jordan, and were all in time so we all decided it would be a good time to go. we spent a fun day in the park hiking around.

wear it wednesday: fall fashion

one of the most exciting things about fall is fall fashion. i can't wait for cardigans and sweaters and fall nail colors. i don't know what the current rule is on white or not after labor day, but i think it's totally fine. white jeans can be just as good in the fall as they are in the summer.

beauty time ties

i have the hardest time finding hair ties that actually work for my hair. most of the time they are too tight. i have them everywhere trying to stretch them a little.i finally found these at nordstrom rack, and i love them. they are tight enough to hold my hair, but not so tight they hurt my head. i will definitely be using these from now on. do you have a fave?

weekend happs

most of them time i really enjoy the weekends. this weekend was no exception. i had the BEST weekend. it was so good, and  i'm sad it's over.

i had a pretty stressful week at work so i intentionally did not make plans for friday. i ran a quick errand that ended up not being as quick as i planned so it was nice not to have other plans. danielle told me about the clearance sale at dillards. since i didn't have other plans, i went shopping-for jeans. jeans shopping is not my favorite thing ever, but it actually wasn't so bad. i found a few pair of my favorite jeans on major clearance and the cutest pair of heels-none of which i have pictures of.

saturday started out with a take it easy rainy 10 mile run. now that the marathon is over, it's so nice not to have the pressure of a race. i definitely want to keep my mileage up, but it was nice to run a little less this week.

after running i met becky, michelle, and mandi to take a pure barre class. they have new music and new choreography, and i really really love it. i was also sweating like crazy about 5 minutes into class. it's been a while since i've taken class with my friends, and it was so fun.

after pure barre we went to lunch at the protein house in draper. i don't know how i have missed that place. it was so good. we had the best time at lunch chatting and eating the most delicious healthy food.

we spent the afternoon hanging out-basically talking. laughing, and doing nothing. it was perfect and so much fun.

i went to dinner with brenna saturday night. we talked about a little of this and a little of that and had a great night catching up. after dinner we stopped by mandi's for a "quick visit" turned into multiple hours of laughing and chatting.

i went to church early on sunday and had the rest of the day to get things done. i got so much accomplished. i was so happy.

the weekend was one of those weekends that left me feeling so happy and so grateful for my life and all of the people in it.

how was your weekend? any exciting happs?

wear it wednesday:fall fashion-wish listing

*sponsored by century 21

we all know i really really love summer. i really do like fall-some years more than others. this year i am determined to embrace the changes in the seasons. i am most excited about fall fashion. i already bought a few things for fall/winter, but i am sure there are more things i need. 

i remember my first trip to NYC. the shopping was the best. that's where i discovered century 21. they have the best stuff at the best prices. there are quite a few things i want for fall.

and for sure some pants, but who really wants to talk about shopping for jeans?!? i sure don't.

shopping online is fun, but i wish i was walking into a century 21 store right now. maybe i should hop a plane to NYC...

what's on your fall wish list?

random rambling...on being a grown up

remember when you were a kid and all you wanted was to be a grown up?!? and then you became a grown up and sometimes all you want is to be a kid? having someone be in charge of making sure i have clothes to wear and food to eat seems kind of nice some days. however, i do like being in charge of my own self. i can basically do what i want when i want.

one of the best things about being a grown up is having nice things. i have dishes that match and kitchen gadgets for everything. i can spend a little more money on clothes and shoes and makeup and hair. i am in charge of when and what i eat. i go to bed when i want and wake up when i want. i can keep things clean or not.

speaking of nice dishes...

we always had simple correll dishes growing up. they are very functional and do the job. as a grown up, it's fun to have dishes that are a little more grown up. the unique patterns make these a little extra fun. nourish is all about creating beautiful memories around the dinner table-something i really love. maybe being a grown isn't so bad (winky face)
