bye bye home away from home...

The move time has finally come and Provo Craft is packin' up and moving. On Friday we had our last day in the office and had to pack up everything. Everyone was only allowed two boxes to bring to the new office. It was hard saying goodbye to that place. I have pretty much lived there for the pst 8 months. Some people have been there for over 4 years. It was sad saying bye, but Monday brings a new home away from home and new adventures. Here's to change!


I went home for Memorial Day and took my friend Jamie from work and her daughter Lexie. Lexie had never been on a trip so it was fun to take her and let me tell you, she was thee best 4 year old I have ever taken a road trip with. It was great. We got there friday night, went to the beach Saturday, my sister got blessed on sunday and then we went to the strawberry festival and then had a little bbq, then we left monday. It was a much needed vacation and I was glad Jamie and Lex got to come.

Sage graduated from 6th grade and I was so excited to get to go to her graduation. It was cute and it was fun to see her. She looked gorgeous. Congrats Sage!

Nature Girl...

Well almost :] On Saturday morning my roomates Katie, Sara, and I went on a hike somewhere up Provo Canyon. It was my first ever real live hike. I must say, it was so much fun! I loved it. We are going to find a new place every Saturday and go. Here are some pictures! Enjoy!

Dear Best Friend...

Happy Mother's Day.
I know it is late in the day and you probably think I have forgotten about you but I haven't. The truth is I have just been putting this off all day long because I haven't wanted to cry...puffy eyes aren't attractive. So now that the day is done and I am off to bed, I figured it would be a good time to let you know just how much I love you.
You are my best friend and always have been. I know you have told me over and over again how you are here to be my mom, not my friend, but I never believed that for a second. You were there for me through the ups and downs, laughs and tears, boyfriends and heart breaks. You were never afraid to tell me when I looked like a bum, chose horrible friends, or when I was just plain being stupid. You held my hand through new experiences but weren't afraid to give me the push when I needed it. You were and are everything a best friend should be.
Now that I'm "grown up" (getting older is mandatory but growing up is optional) and I am out of the house I have realized just how much of a presence you are in my life. (Crap here come the tears.) I miss you more and more every day but am reminded of you in every little thing I do. Everything in my daily routine is inspired by you. From the motivation to wake up at the butt crack of dawn and go to work, to driving my car (even though i know it frustrated you more than anything trying to teach me) to my work ethic that has gotten me farther in the corporate environment than I ever thought possible for myself, I owe it all to you (Dad you too but this is a mother's day will get your glory next month.)
Thank you for all you have done. Thank you for answering the phone and listening to me vent even when the time isn't convenient. Thank you for always being there. I love you so much and I hope you had an amazing Mother's Day. It was hard for me not to be there. You deserve the world and I am so proud to be your daughter.
Love you!

Nolan David

Happy Belated birthday to the happiest kid I know!

It's so hard to believe that Nolan is two. He is such a little person and it has all happened so fast. It is crazy to be able to pick up the phone and have a conversation with him. He makes me laugh and smile even when I don't feel like it and I just love him so much!!!

Happy birthday buddy!!! Can't wait to see you soon!!!

You're 2!!!!! WHOO HOOOOO!

There are so many new things in my life that I have to say YAY to!

First off, I have a new little sister!!!!!!!!!! That's like thee best thing ever! She is so precious! I just love her so much!!! Little Evyn Rose. Can't wait to go home for Easter and spend some more time with her.

Next, I GOT MY COMPUTER WORKING!!!!!!! wooooo!!! I will finally be back in the blogging world (provided there is something to blog about).

Lastly, I am still working with Provo Craft and loving every second of it. We are moving to a new BEAUTIFUL office and I can't even wait.

Ryan and I went home this weekend to see the baby and had a great time! It was so nice to see my family and I am so glad that he got to spend some time with us. He got to go see some of his old work friends up in Irvine on Saturday night and while it was a fast trip, it was a great one. Ryan decided to stop at the Calico Ghost Town on our way home and I tried warning him that it was a little left of fun, but being a man, he had to find out for himself. Needless to say we were there for maybe 15 minutes. Haha. It was all worth it to him though, we found mud on the way out and since he was in a 4x4 rental truck, he HAD to have some fun. At first I told him to stop, but he said "HONEY, I'M A MAN, I DESERVE TO FEEL LIKE KEN BLOCK ATLEAST ONCE IN MY LIFE" haha I couldn't resist I had to let him have fun for that moment and I have to say, he definitely knows how to have fun.

So, after getting the truck muddy and letting Ryan have his boy moment we continued on to "home".

It was a great trip and thank you so much Ryan for all you did to make sure I got home to my family. I love you :]

Have a great night everyone!

Dear family and friends,

I AM ALIVE. I'm sorry that I have completely neglected my blog and facebook for those of you that are facebook friends. But the truth of the matter is that it isn't my choice. This last month has been a little on the crazy side. It's almost like everything I touch breaks! In one day my laptop, ipod, and phone all broke. I got a new phone, my awesome dad sent me his ipod, but I am still lacking a lap top and am currently in the process of saving up to buy a new one. The problem with that is I have bills up the wall! Between the dentist and the doctors I have zero money for anything else. RUDE! Anyways, I've been stealing roomates' computers and sneaking onto Ryan's when I have the chance, so be patient with me. I promise I'm not doing it on purpose.

There really isn't anything exciting happening in my life. Just the same ol' same ol'. I work from 9-5 everyday then spend the rest of the day with Ryan. My weekend have been consisting of BYU Men's Volleyball games.Those are really fun because Ryan and I get to see Davis and the kids. Its really fun.

That's about it. Just workin my tail off and getting ready for next semester...JOY!

Love you all!
