DEMOLITION DERBY

9.11.2017




I remember my first Demolition Derby like it was yesterday. I was 12 years old, and I had been invited to go with a friend's family. I had no idea what a Demolition Derby even was, but I was hooked as soon as the car-smashing began! But it's not every day that you find other people that also love Demolitions Derbies; they're a tad bit red-neck, haha. So when Berkley texted me and asked if Jake and I wanted to go with her and Corey, I was SO STOKED! The derby definitely did not disappoint, and neither did our company. Berk and Corey are some of our favorite people, and we can't wait for more nights out with them. :) 

FULL MOON AT SUNDANCE

9.09.2017





It's been almost two years since my first date with Jake; during which he took me on the Full Moon Lift Ride at Sundance. So when I found out he was planning to take me there again last night, I immediately became ecstatic! I've been itching for Fall to arrive, and it was the perfect way to indulge in a little bit of an early Fall! Up the canyon, the air was crisp and there was a definite chill in the air. Jake wrapped me up in his plaid blanket while we waited for our turn to hop on the lift. On the lift, we got to cuddle and laugh about our first date and wonder how we got to where we are. We're still not that sure, haha, but we couldn't be happier.

We tried so hard to take a good picture, but it was so dark outside that every time the flash went off, I couldn't keep my eyes open! We have so many pictures of Jake lookin' fresh, and me lookin' like a dead person. Although, that's pretty typical no matter the circumstances haha. 

If anyone has any good Fall Bucket List items, send 'em my way! 

BECOMING AN AUNT FOR THE 13TH AND 14TH TIME

9.07.2017










 It was right around last Christmas when BOTH of my sisters-in-law revealed that they were pregnant with due dates ONE week apart! I'd been anxiously awaiting the arrival of those perfect little babes ever since. After what seemed like an eternity, we were able to welcome Kailor D. and Lyza Jane out of the wombs and into the world! I was instantly smitten, of course. 

This past Sunday was Lyza's blessing day. I love baby blessings. I love thinking about the future of this tiny little human that has no idea what kind of adventure he/she has begun! Life is a wonderful miracle, and I love the fresh perspective babies bring. 

Also, if anyone wants to talk about how attractive Jake is while holding a newborn baby....holla at me! ;)
