SUMMA time and the livin's easy

Today it snowed. YES, SNOW. It's almost the end of March. March is a very bipolar month in Utah. So to help myself not slip into a deep, dark, cold depression I decided to make myself a list of things that I am looking forward in the upcoming months.

1. HAWAII in May.
This trip has been planned forever and it finally feels like it is coming soon.

2. Fresh picked fruit in the summer. Utah has the BEST PEACHES.

3. Beach + SUN . This one might not happen too often this summer. But I do have a Seven Peaks pass :)

4. Tulip Festival this Spring at Thanksgiving Point. I have yet to go and this year is going to be my year.

5. Surfing. Hopefully I will get to go a couple of times this summer. At least I will go in Hawaii. Maybe we will do a roadtrip home in July.

6. Island Park for the 4th of July. Seriously, can't think of a better place to be on the 4th with these lovely ladies.

7. Hikes and just being outside.

8. Picnics up Provo canyon.

9. Park City ALPINE SLIDES. It's so beautiful and green in the summer. I love it.

10. Baseball Games. We love the Dodgers but we can compromise with Bees and Owlz games too.

11. Last but NOT least....Graduation #2 - from Nursing School !!!! wooo wooooooo

So, even though today was pretty crappy with all the snow and coldness...I've realized that I have some great things I am looking forward to. Remember, Count your Blessings :)

I surfed the TSUNAMI

This past weekend Case and I took separate vacations. I went home to California for some fun in the sun and Case went on a boys trip to Vegas for the basketball tournament with his dad, brother and Dale. We both had a great time but I was kinda missing my bud towards the end.
G-funk and I at lunch. She's a lovely lady.
Mac and I checked out this sweet little bakery/cafe called Euro Pane in Pasadena.

yummmy french toast.

Papi trying to figure out his new phone.

We went and saw "Jane Eyre". Great movie. If you liked Pride and Predjudice you will love this one.

Mac has this crazy love obsession with The Biebs. She even gets his tweets forwarded to her phone as text messages. He smiles at her every morning on her way to school.

I am not by any means making light of the Tsunami in Japan situation at all. But, in all honesty I'm pretty sure I caught the wave that shut down all the beaches in Orange County and Santa Barbara County. For some odd reason they did not shutdown any beaches in LA County. In fact, there were a couple firetrucks in the parking lot at Malibu and they did not say a word to us as we walked out into the water. There was a crowd forming on the beach with photographers and news crews waiting for the 8:41 am tsunami warning. The waves were seriously on 1-2 ft...but then out of nowhere, around the time when the suspected wave was coming, a perfect 4 ft wave came rolling in with my name on it. It was epic.

Chad was pretty stoked.

Meet our newest NEIGHBORS!

SO they have not moved in yet....but Casey and I are lucky enough to have 2 fabulous new neighbors moving to our street soon. Casey's sister Kelly Heinz, her husband Bryce and their babe Benson will be moving into the upstairs of the house with the basement that Casey and I used to live in (literally just at the end of our block). and Casey's brother Kevin, his wife Jen and their 3 kids will be moving right across the street from Kelly's house! How amazing is that? We created our very own Orem Family Compound. and let's just say that we are pretty excited. I mean what are the chances?

Joshua Radin

So I bought Casey these tickets for Christmas which seems like forever ago. We both really love Joshua Radin. His song "I'd Rather Be With You" was kind of our theme song when we got married. It was a great concert! I love when you go to concerts and you realize that the person is even BETTER live then they are on the radio. I had a midterm earlier that day so Joshua was the only thing pulling me through. and He totally did!
(although "In the Venue" is probably the WORST venues in the entire world....this might have been the last time I will ever go there).
