What I've Been Up To!!

So, aside from being super busy editing photos (which has been fantastic), my summer has been pretty chill so far! First of all, I go over to my mom's house most mornings to help her in the yard, after which I do pilates with my sister Adriane, who lives a couple blocks away. This little stinker can make that difficult sometimes! Especially when he is using this pacifier!

I have also had to keep tabs on my dear Kirby. This is what happens when I leave him alone.... And yes. That is my purse. And it's full.

At the end of June/beginning of July my family vacationed up at Aspen Grove. It was a lot of fun! Gregory discovered just how much he loves to swim!

And Kirby and I took a pottery class. Kirby was a natural. And I failed miserably. But it was fun!

My parents love reading up there. They are so cute. They read and take naps for their vacations. :)

Another toothy grin from my darling nephew...

And then, on July 5th, a guy in my aunt's ward in Pleasant Grove put on a fireworks show! It was sooo cool! He's a licensed pyrotechnician, so he can get a license from the city to light off REAL fireworks. :) It was amazing. The fireworks were literally right above us. It was magical, as cheesy as that sounds! Our friends Mark and Amy came with us.

Classic Mark.

So yeah. That's just a random sampler for you. I felt like I've been neglecting this blog, with all my new posts on my photo blog! So here you go! Hope you now feel refreshed!

How fun is this!? My friend Melanie posted this, and I thought it was fantastic, so I stole. :)

1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember. If we're only blogging friends write about a post that is most memorable.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll be sure to write one about you....either on your blog, in my comment box, or I will email you one back.

3. If the memory happens to involve my husband, please include him.

4. If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all.

The Alphabet Thing-a-ma-bob

So, Meridith tagged me, and I figured why not! There is no D and no R, for some strange reason, but you'll get over it! :)

- Attached or Single—Very attached. ☺

B- Best Friends—Kirby, Mom, sisters, Meridith, and Sarah (they’re my bestest friends. I have too many “best” friends to write down!)

C- Cake or Pie—Pie, if it is apple or peach (but cobbler might win over pie,) but I’m a sucker for a good German Chocolate cake.

E-Essential item—camera (because you never know!)

F- Favorite Color—depends on the day, really. And I prefer color schemes over individual colors. Colors are so much cooler when they’re combined into a scheme.

G-Gummy Bears or Worms—definitely the bears.

H-Hometown—Orem, Utah.

I- Indulgence—sleeping in. ☺ Big time. And I love me a good shopping spree when I’m in the mood.

J-January or July—Neither, really. I prefer moderate temperatures. But if I had to choose I’d have to say July. Summer is a fun time.

K-Kids—Love em. Want em. ‘Nuff said.

L-Life is incomplete without—FAMILY (I copied Meridith on this one, but I have to agree.)

M- Marriage Date—December 28, 2006

N-Number of Siblings—two sisters, one brother, one brother-in-law

O-Oranges or Apples—Mmmmm… Oranges. ☺

P-Phobias or Fears—Drowning; Needing to do CPR on someone and freezing up; well, really… doing CPR on a stranger would be pretty freaky too… Even on someone you know! NEEDING TO DO CPR ON ANYONE!!!

Q-Quotes—“Any man who can kiss a pretty girl while driving is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves." –Albert Einstein-

S-Season—As previously mentioned, I love spring and fall. They are exciting seasons! Seasons of change. ☺

T-Tag three friends—Jewelyn, Sara, and Adriane.

U-Unknown fact—I’m “growing out” my hair.

V-Very favorite store—ETHAN ALLEN! Haha. Okay, Meridith. That was really mostly for you. I love furniture stores, where I can get interior design ideas. I love perusing jewelry stores, too, because I love sparkly things (although I never buy anything.) And I love wandering through Roberts, too, although I can rarely justify buying anything. Once We have a house and I am making good money with photography, I’m going to splurge there. ☺

W-Worst Habit—Tugging at my eyelashes (usually at night)

X-Xray or Ultrasound- X-ray? Ultrasound. No lead blanket necessary. Plus there are positive connotations. At least now. This one time in sixth grade I had to get an ultrasound because they thought I had appendicitis. I didn’t. But they made me drink over a quart of water and hold it for several hours. It was a rough day.

Y-You're favorite food—I love pasta with cream sauces. Especially stuffed ones. Mushroom ravioli is divine. But I also love me a good tender steak.

Z- Zodiac--Aries
