Beep Beep...

This weekend was so much fun! I went to Moab with my whole dads side of the family to go rock crawling in the jeeps. I finally got to feel the warmth of the sunshine this year and it was a.maz.ing! This year was especially nice because I finally got to drive on the trails. we did Sevenmile Rim, Rosegarden Hill, Flat Iron Mesa, and Kane Creek the last day. Sevenmile is the one that I got to rock! Its a easy starter one....Rick said it was my training wheels. But I loved every min. of it. The last big part was super scary. The hill was super sketch!! We didn't even have to go down it because they just came right back up.... but I put on my big girl panties and went for it! Dad gave me some great pointers as in "left" "right" "forward" and at one point I was facing straight down at the on-coming rock bottom with my back tires off the ground waving in the wind (literally... I could feel it teetering. Poop myself!)

Rick had a few problems with his jeep because he loooooves to push it to the limit. Sadly he pushed it a little far and poped some widget or other. But we didn't let it slow us down!! We did have to cut the trail a little short. But as we got to the end suddenly Ricks jeep was covered in silly string. So naturally we had to plot! After a really funny ride to the local market with Rick and Catherine we came up with a great idea. And to make it even better Todd's jeep was parked right outside!!

12 rolls of toilet paper and a lot of giggles later we got our first attack. we later got them with silly string but the toilet paper was by far the best.

Moab is the greatest! Even though you are bouncing around in the back of a jeep getting major whiplash, it seems to be magical. With the red rocks, nice sunshine streaming down, and twinkling starlight at night....its blissful.

mothers day

to all.
We started with breakfast up Millcreek Canyon in the beautiful sunshine with the fowler fam.
Then came home and took a nice little nap!!

Sean and Lauren came up for the weekend to celebrate and brought chubby lil' Tank with them.

We made a delightful dinner. Ravioli stuffed with lobster and gruyere topped with marinara sauce, green beans, and garlic bread. Mango shakes for dessert! Yummy.

Happy mothers day mom! Love you so much for all you do!

I'm so excited for all my friends that are graduating from collage this spring.
 Katie, Emma, and Brynn.
(to name a few!)
 I am a tiny jealous because I still have forever left in school. But I did have the pleasure of attending Brynn's Nursing graduation ceremony at SLCC. We have been besties since we were 4 years old so we have always been their to represent and support each other through it all!

A blast from the past.
(first day of school in 5th grade)

Eating at Cheese Cake Factory with her family before

The official grad pin and all

If you know me at all you know I heart scrapbooking and making my friends gifts for pressies. I'll post pics of some things I have made at a later time. But I made her a "b" for Brynn and some frames as a gift. I like to think they ended up looking pretty dang cute if I do say so myself!

Congrats to everyone who is done with school!! Super jealous of all of you.

Yesterday I finished (and hopefully passed) my FINALS!!! I still have a looooong way to go for school but the good news is
.......drum roll please......
I only have 2 more classes until I am able to apply for dental hygiene programs at Weber, Dixie, and any other schools that tickle my fancy! Until then I am just chugging along, currently at both Salt Lake Commuinty Collage and the University of Utah. Hopefully by the fall I will only be at the U.

I also just moved back home with mom, it's weird coming home after being away for so long. It's not like I was never here just hanging out for a little while, but living back home is a completely different story. Mostly becuase I have nowhere to escape to, and I have to tell her where I'm going and when I'll be back....which I never know! But I love my mom and were having lots of fun. We loved our old house so much! It was the cutest thing ever.......

(Pic curtosey of my little camera phone, not the best quality but it was all I had)
Dear Roomies:
I already miss you girls greatly! So many good memories from this house.


I finally did it..... I have broken down and become a blogger. But just as a disclaimer to anyone and everyone who reads it: I am not a not writer! It will be messy and I most likely will not post often. But hopfully you will have learning about me and what I am up to.
