Lunch at Serranos!

I am so excited! My friends Matt Laney and Cameron Boheme just recently came home from their missions. So, Wednesday the 26th of November we all decided to go to lunch at Serranos. We had so much fun catching up and eating food! What more could you ask for? Here I am with my good friends Sara Reheis, and Kaylene Woods.
Kaylene and I she has been my best friend since Jr. High.

Here are my two best guy friends in the whole entire world. (Besides my husband) Cameron on the left and Matt on the right.

Here are the five of us at Matt's house. It was so much fun to see everyone basically since Cameron and Matt left on their missions. I love each and everyone of them so much, I don't know what I would do without such great examples in my life. They each bring so many different strenghts to my life they will never truly know the impact they have had on me.

We used to call ourselves the Triangle in High School because we were all best friends all four years at Mesquite. We were practically inseperable. ha ha lol

Hiking at Superstition Mountain!

Michael and I decided to go hiking on Tuesday morning. Well, we decided to take the dog on his first hike. We went to Superstition Springs Mountain at the wind caves. We had such a great time and Kaiser kept us at a really good pace. The top two pictures of Michael and I we are at the top of the mountain and then my favorite pictures are of Kaiser sticking his head out the window and his little lips flying everywhere. He enjoyed sticking his head out the window on the way their but on the way home his slept all the way back and then he slept for another hour once we got home. It was so nice cause Michael and I were exhausted after the hike.

Are you the Mix 96.9 10,000 dollar Mystery Shopper???

So,three weeks ago Debra Jo and I wanted to find the Mix 96.9 10,000 dollar mystery shopper. We thought they were at Superstition Springs mall. So, I called her and asked if she wanted to come with me to find the shopper. Off we go.............
Ahhhhh I hope we find them!!! It was so cute on the car ride over we were trying to get Tyson to say the phrase " Are you the mix 96.9 10,000 dollar mystery shopper" and it was so cute he said the word are and then I turned around and said "You" and he giggled every other word of the phrase we said he giggled every time we tried to get him to say it. It was adorable.

Getting discouraged we decided to ride the carosel before we left to brighten our spirits because Tyson was roaring like a Tiger. So, we hop on and Debra Jo goes to sit him on the Tiger and he starts crying. ha ha lol It was so funny the whole ride he just clung to Debra Jo.

Never to young to ride a carosel. I rode the Unicorn. : )

He is such a joy and little bundle of love.
Here Tyson is trying to put my shoes on the other week at my parents house.

My brother Taylor was playing with Tyson and Tyson kept laughing at Taylor and would put his head up close to the stair railing! I wish I could have been where Taylor was standing but I was afraid in the excitment of things he would fall!

This is my favorite one of him!

Boulder Colorado!

Boulder Colorado Here we come! I had the opportunity to go to Boulder this past weekend from Thursday until Sunday! For a convention called IACURH! IACURH is a leadership convention for Community Assisitants and RHA (Resident halls assistants) around the nation for University students! The theme of the convention was The legend of the hidden leadership. It was based off the old game show legend of the hidden temple. I learned so much that I can now share with my team at work and have great ideas for fun programs that will hopefully get our residents out to them. It was such a fun learning experience and I hope I am able to attend the next convention NACURH in February.
Holy Cow! Talk about squished! four of us piled into the cab of Britny's dad's truck to the air port and even better I am holding the display in the front seat cause it would fly out of the back. So, I couldn't see anything. Everyone kept teasing me and was like "Oh no were going to crash look out ahhhhhh" It was so funny and such a great experience to start off the trip!
The subway system was so cool at the air port! I have never been on one before so it was fun holding onto the polls and the hand loops at the top of the subway!

Getting ready to go on stage for our skit!


SNOW!!! It snowed Friday morning! It was Beautiful! I love their buildings at the University!
Holy Cow! Ok! So, in colorado they have the cutest chip muncks ever! And, they are so fat and plump too! I wanted to catch one and keep it! But, I wasn't fast enough so I took a picuture!

Snap shot! Hey do you like our Harry Potter Scarfs??? ha ha

University of Colorado at Boulder is Gorgeous!

Ryan, Britny, Erin, Eleanor. Chillin in the courtyard out side of the conference room waiting for a class to finish so we can quite freezing our hind ends off!

While in Colorado the Athletic Director spoke to us about being successful and during his speech we would cheer at the good parts that he spoke about. Well, he had mentioned that their basketball team was playing that night and that our energy of all those from IACURH would make a big difference at the game. Their was about 400 students total that attended IACURH. He asked if we would be interested in going to the game and we said yes! So, we all got free t-shirts that we are wearing in the picture, we got into the game for free, and he ordered all of us pizza. It was a lot of fun! And, The Buffaloes won 43 to 32. It was a great game.
This is Cyri she is from The University of Utah. She and I became good friends during the Convention.

Here is Eleanor on the left and Britny on the right. They are inseperable. I thought that this picture was cute because during the whole convention in you found Britny you found Eleanor and if you found Eleanor you found Britny. And, they wore almost the same outfits the whole time, jackets and everything. : )

You can't see it but my left hand is full of stuff and Ryan's left hand is full of stuff! We both wanted to leave a note on UofA door so we had to help each other take the cap of the marker off. Well, putting the cap back on was the most difficult and it took us about three tries to get the cap back on! We are such NERDS!!! : )

Polytechnic at ASU! Go SUN DEVILS!!! Left to right Joe, Jordan, Stephanie, Ray, Kayla, Arnold, Erin, Britny, Eleanor, Catherine, Ryan. We had such a good time at the banquet even though we didn't win anything!

Veterans Day!

Their were huge wooden pallets full of these candles lit every where. Total their were five of these all around the chapel and outside of the chapel. They light a candle for every saint that they have.
Mike and I in front of one of their dead priests! It is not a real person it is a statue of a real person. I feel really bad that I forgot the priest's name. But is one of their most importnat preists or saints that they have.

Inside the Chapel.

Mike and I in front of San Xavier! That is a real dog that was just hanging around outside of the church. It was really nice but we decided not to pet it! : )

Mike and I decided to take our Tuesday off and go to Tucson with our friends Adam and Liz Zamora! We went and saw San Xavier just 10 minutes out of Tucson. Also, because Mike had a school prodject to do! But, we had a good time!

Have you ever opened up Google and clicked on images and then searched for random memories you have of High School! Try it sometime! Don't waist a lot of time doing it just spend about 10 minutes serfing the net. It is fun to have a whole bunch of memories flud your mind of High School or your teenage years. My favorite is looking at pictures of Lighthouses, flowers, and lds temples. So, below you will find some random memories that popped into my head while I was online!

High School Memories!

Watching movies almost every other weekend was a natural accurence in High School! Cars is one of my favorites! I just love Pixar films! You can't help but Smile, Laugh, feel good, and want to enjoy life when you see a Pixar film!
My best friend Kaylene and my guy friends always wore Volcom. Ok! not always but pretty much! Volcom was on our folders, our clothes, even our shoes! ha ha

Who doesn't love pictures! We were constantly taking pictures and placing them all over our folders. We were such nerds!

Who doesn't like Avril! We loved rocking out to music with our windows down and singing at the top of our lungs along with our stereo turned up almost as loud as it could go!
