My Newest Adventure

Although I'm pretty sure all of you already know, I thought I'd make it even more official by posting it on my blog...but I'm getting married!  His name is Cameron Hunter and he's WONDERFUL!  I've known him since 8th grade and we even dated in high school.  We dated off and on, and even when we weren't dating we stayed really good friends.  He's always been one of my best friends and he's helped me get through a lot of trials and challenges.

He got home from his mission the day after I moved home and things just fell into place.  We got engaged 6 weeks after he got home.  I know, I know, it was quick, but I felt like it was okay because we've known each other for almost as many years as we didn't know each other.  We're getting married on the 27th of November, the day after Thanksgiving, in the Bountiful temple.  I hope to see all of you there!

Here are some pictures of our adventures together.  He's a cutie, or as Aunt Eileen puts it "He's handsome!"  We have a ton of fun together and I enjoy every second I get to be with him.
We went up the mountain to take pictures of the fall leaves.  They're not all quite there yet, but we sure had fun taking pictures anyway.

This picture is from Lagoon.  This was taken on the very day he said "When we get home, I'm going to talk to your dad."  That was it.  Technically he never asked me and I never said yes. :)
We went on a night hike up at the "C"...I guess we were scared or something.  I don't really know why we're making these faces.
He borrowed one of my sweatshirts...and was a little small for him.

These are our super hero faces.  Yes, we're conquering the world one mexi-mustache at a time.

Hello Seattle

Steven was a trooper and joined me on my adventures to Seattle and Idaho. We drove over 2000 miles but it was a blast, at least for me. We visited Audrey for almost a week and we got to see some new things, including her new baby. I'll post the pictures from Idaho in a couple of days, I don't want to overwhelm all of you with jealousy. :) It was so good to see Audrey, Barrett, Daven and new little Afton. She's a beautiful baby with TONS of hair! Thanks again Audrey and Barrett for letting us crash your apartment!


On our way to Seattle, Steve and I stopped in Twin Falls to have some dinner. We crossed this huge bridge and at the bottom of this gorge there was the most beautiful golf course. It was sweet!
I seriously could not get enough of Afton's hair. I love it!
In my personal opinion, Pike's Market is a must see if you're visiting Seattle. There are tons of fruit stands, honey stands, fish stands, flower shops and any other shop you could possibly imagine. There are people singing on the street and hippies everywhere. It's great!
LINCOLN PARK (no not the band)
This is the "Sandcastle Beemine" as Daven named it. We took the only patch of sand we could find on the beach and built a fantastic sandcastle. Good job Steve and Daven!
We saw two jelly fish in the water. One was dead and just floating along, and this red one looked as if it were dying. I didn't think they came this far north. Shows you what I know about jelly fish.
On our little hike to the beach, we spotted a spotted owl. I've never really seen one, so I thought it was pretty cool.
I just love this picture. Afton sure is a great baby! She didn't even cry when Steve held her. :)
We rode the ferry to Vashon Island and it was one of the highlights of the trip. There was a street fair and we walked around for a while, passing little booths as we strolled up the street. I really love street fairs, mostly because they always have live entertainment. There were a few bands and singers that I really liked, and there was even an old man dancing/doing Tai Chi under a tree. I wanted to take a picture of him, but I didn't really think that it would be appropriate. He seemed really into the music.
I officially love Seattle, and I hope that Audrey and Barrett enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs!

Wendover and the FUNBUS!

A couple of weeks ago a few friends and I paid $15 to ride the Fun Bus out to Wendover. It's actually a really good deal. You pay the $15, they drive you to Wendover and back, you get a $25 all-you-can-eat buffet, a little coupon book for free drinks and discounts at stores and $5 to gamble. So, if you don't take any more money than the $15, you get a full belly and a few bucks to blow on Black Jack or Craps.

I realized that I really hate gambling. I don't really like spending money or shopping, and just blowing money on a card game was silly to me, but the whole experience was really fun. We also decided to dress up, and when I heard this I thought "I'll go as a cowgirl." Everyone else went in 80's outfits, so we looked pretty silly walking around the casinos. Who am I kidding? All the old people there looked way silly, we fit right in.

So, if you're looking for a cheap date or just something fun to do, hop on the Fun Bus to Wendover. It will be well worth your $15 and 6 hours.

Fun Fun and More Fun

For my birthday I invited my roommates, cousin Brittany, my brother and some other friends to go camping at Zion National Park. We had such a great time and got to enjoy the beauty of southern Utah.I love Brittany to death! She's super hard-core, but is also very sincere and genuine. I consider her one of my best friends.
Blowing out 21 candles.
My roommates Liz and Kiley.
Hey my good lookin' brother!

I must admit this is probably one of my all-time favorite pictures of Steve!
A few weeks after school got out, my friends and I went camping and rock climbing. It was rainy and cold, but totally worth it!
I figured everyone wanted a good picture of my bum. Well, here it is. I really love rock climbing and want to get better at it (*hint* *hint* Steve).

A lot is going on in my life, but because I have to go to work right now I will have to wait until another day to update you. Life is good, I'm happy, I love my family, and I'm extremely blessed!

Her Morning Elegance

I have always wanted to make a stop motion music video, and I think this one is beautifully done. The song is pretty awesome too, or at least I think so.

Life is good in Logan, and I will be posting more pictures pretty soon. I just don't have the internet at my apartment so I have to use my friend's computer. All I have to say is "Hooray for Summer!" I'm going camping tomorrow and went camping at Zion's for my birthday a couple weeks ago. I'm so excited to spend lots of time outdoors. Logan really is beautiful at this time of year!

Spring is Springing!

I, along with everyone else in Logan, have been complaining about the poor weather. Just two days ago it snowed and covered all of our beautiful green grass with a white blanket of coldness. I figure I can't control the weather, so there really is no point in making a big deal out of it anymore. If it's gonna snow, it's gonna snow so why not enjoy it?

We have had some beautiful days sneaking in every once in a while, and on one of them we (meaning Marisa and I) decided it was time to have a BBQ. So, we called and text all the roomies and some other friends and embarked on a park adventure. It was so nice to be in the sunshine again, even if it was a little chilly still.

They totally weren't posing for this picture......well....kind of.....
Marinda, the light of my life and one of the happiest people I know.
Liz and Marisa....they look like this probably 90% of the time.
It was actually quite remarkable that Tasha ate a hot dog, considering that she hates them.
Chrissy and Tanner playing catch, only appropriate on a beautiful day in the park.
Colby was kind enough to watch the grill and flip the hot dogs with a stick (I forgot a spatula).
I can't remember why Liz posed like this, but I sure like it!
And this picture has nothing to do with the park, some of us just decided to hit up the hot springs a few days earlier. It's really nice to have friends that like to do fun stuff. I'm really lucky to have them!

Oh Arizona!

As most of you already know, I went down to Arizona with the family last week. It was so wonderful to see the sun again and to attempt to get a tan. On our way back we stopped at the Grand Canyon, and I must say it is pretty grand!

Steve looks so much in awe...or like he's about to sneeze, I don't quite know!
Now, I look like I'm in awe. I've been working on my facial expressions lately.
This is where everyone else is putting theirs.
I'm so glad that my parents still like each other. They are a really good example for me.
Posin' by the watchtower. Work it baby! Work it!

We spent a morning at the riparian preserve and it was way fun. The kids discovered a couple of dinosaurs while we were there. Good work kids!
Two of my favorite girls in the whole world!
We went to a spring training game in Scottsdale. We watched the Giants and the White Sox play. It was really fun to be in the baseball atmosphere, with all the salesmen yelling about peanuts and beer. We also had awesome seats on the second row right in between home and first base.
Workin' the shades as always.
Mmmm! Hot Dawg!
Swing batta batta, swing!
Lillian of the most precious little girls I know, even if she is posing on a dirty truck in the parking lot of Lee's Asian Marketplace.
Dad's been searching and searching for herbal laxatives. Finally, he found some.

It was so wonderful to be in 85-degree weather and to go swimming. I didn't think that Logan was that cold until I came back. The day after I got back it snowed 2 inches and has continued to snow all week. Yeah...I wasn't too happy about that. :) I guess we do need the moisture so I shouldn't complain.

Thanks again Jen and Alec for letting us stay with you. Thanks mom and dad for letting me read out loud to you on the drive back. And thanks Steve for taking silly pictures with me and being the best brother ever!
