I Heart My Friends! xoxo

In life there are so many different kinds of friends that influence and enrich ones life. New friends, old friends, boy-friends, long distance friends, ward friends, facebook friends, single friends, married friends, I could go on and on! Each friendship I've had has completely affected my life in it's own unique and wonderful way and I feel so blessed!
So, I know I'm not suppose to play favorites but there is something to be said about having a group of girlfriends that have been apart of your life for SO long that you have all shared and experienced each others FIRST breakouts, breakdowns, boyfriends, baby births and every major and minor event in between!!!

So, two of my BFF's are moving!!!! Melissa is moving to Florida and Joce is moving to Panama! I am SO excited for them both but I am going to miss their guts! It did give us the perfect excuse in all our busy lifes to get together and catch up! It had been WAAAAYYYY to long!
And of course we had to stick with tradition and meet at the OG baby!

I HEART you Melissa H, Melissa A, Liz, Angie, Heather, Jessica, Joce, Elyce, Lyndsie and Traci! Can't wait to see where life takes us all next....

Baby Kate

My BF of like forever had another take your breath away gorgeous baby!  I almost can't believe how precious she is.  She has such a sweet little spirit and calmness about her.  I think she gets it from her mama! 

I love Melissa so much!  She has been one of those people in my life that has been there for me through everything! I don't think I would have been able to get through some hard times if it wasn't for her and Tom.  I am forever grateful to God to have them in my life.  She is an angel!
Honestly I don't think there is anything sweeter in this world then seeing a dad holding his baby girl.  I'm getting teary! I need to move on to the next picture!
Can I borrow her like maybe once or twice a week?

Maui Round 2

Last March my brother David and I headed to Maui to get out of the cold.  Well, we had so much fun we decided to go again!  This could be one tradition that just might stick.  We just need to get the rest of the family to come!

I don't know why the pineapple is SO dang good in Maui.  I never eat it when I'm home but I couldn't get enough of the stuff.  I think David and I together probably ate 5o pineapple by the end of the trip!  

Every night the sunsets were amazing.  They were all so different but this one was my favorite!

This is us eating at Hula.  We ate there last time we came to Maui and loved it so much we decided to go again...twice! 

This is us walking on beach trail
Hanging out with the fish and flamingos at the hotel.  David kicked my butt at speed but he was no match for me at UNO!
I could do this all day for the rest of my life! 
The crab was amazing! I could only afford it for one night but it was worth it!  This trip was just what I needed to keep me going until all that white cold stuff melts away...hopefully it's sooner than later.

Tagged: 25 Random Things About Me!

Heather tagged me and since I have never actually done a tag I thought it would be fun!  So here is a lot of random things that maybe a lot of you don't know about me!

1.  I love going to the grocery store.  I don't know why I love it so much but it's so fun to go down all the aisles and look at all the random stuff and find new products.  Don't even get me started on Costco! I could waste an entire day going through that store!

2.  My favorite season is fall.  The smell of the crisp fall air, the weather, the changing leafs and the football games make me so grateful to live in Utah.

3.  I love getting "deals" on everything.  However, when I get my deal I end up buying at least two to three times as much because I got such a great deal.

4.  I have been a Vegetarian for about a month.  I don't know why...I'm just random like that.

5.  Sunsets are one of my favorite things in the world.  They are like candy for the eyeballs.  I try to see the sunset every night because each one is different and if I miss it I know I will never see one like it.

6.  My grandma's laugh is the best sound I have ever heard.  I wish I could bottle it up and have it with me whenever I need to laugh or be cheered up.  Just thinking about it makes me smile.

7.  I am a health nut/sugar addict.  I think the two extremes put me somewhere in the middle range of a normal person.

8.  I would love to live abroad for a couple years.

9.  I love being in love.

10.  When I see someone cry I automatically get teary.  It doesn't matter if it's a commercial or my best just happens.

11.  I am a cat women!  Sammy, Oreo, Blackbeard, Puff, and Sushi have been kitty's I've had throughout my life.

12.  I love rollerblading.  I will rollerblade till I can't rollarblade no more!

13.  I have over ten journals.  I love reading them and remembering events in my life.

14.  I have a night light in almost ever socket in my house because I'm so scared of the dark.

15.  My favorite thing to bake is cookies.  I love making up new recipes and eating them!

16.  If I could do anything I would lay in a hammock on the beach and just watch the ocean.

17.  I love to travel and want to see everything!  I really have to go to Italy, Thailand, Prague, Germany, Switzerland, Egypt and about a million other places but for sure Italy.

18.  My best friend is my brother David.  

19.  I want to be a mama someday!

20.  Even after having a broken heart I still believe in a Happily Ever After...

21.  I love going out to eat and finding new restaraunts.  I think I would love that as a job.  

22.  My favorite holiday is the Fourth of July.  This is's warm, there is always yummy food and BBQ's, games,  and fireworks.  I LOVE fireworks!  Even if all the other stuff was gone and there was just fireworks it would still be my favorite holiday.

23.  I think I am the only person left on the planet who still buys CD's and still doesn't know how to use an I Pod.  

24.  I love people watching.  I could be anywhere and if I can watch people I am happy.  People fascinate sounds creepy but it's way better then any TV show!

25.  I love my niece Shelby and my nephews Dalton and Garrett more than anything in this world.

Silly at Sundance

My friend Ty had a movie showing at the Sundance Film Festival so my friends Danielle, Kristin and I thought that was just the perfect excuse we needed to get out of Provo and head up to experience all the festivities that Sundance has to offer.  I thought this picture was funny because we were trying to act like we were famous! It kind of worked though because someone asked us if we were on The Hills!  We are now answering to the names of Audrina and Whitney just in case anyone is wondering! 

We ate at this really yummy restaurant right on Main Street.  Nachos are always good no matter what time of night it is! 
This is my friend Ty!  His party was so fun and it was fun to see part of his documentary.  It was awesome!  Did I mention Tapango was there....remember her from Boy Meets World?  That was a freaky trip back in time!  

It was also fun to walk Main Street because there was such a fun energy in the air! I love watching people and meeting new people and I had such a good time with my girlies!  I love Utah! Seriously sometimes I have to pinch myself because it is just the most amazing place ever!
