we went camping

and loved it!
I LOVE to camp. I love being in nature, where it is calm and serene.  It was nice to get away for a weekend and just enjoy the outdoors.
I especially love Tony's Grove in Logan, UT.  It is one of my favorite places.  It is not only beautiful, but Luke and I went up there quite a few times and had a lot of fun experiences when we were dating and first married.

We headed up with Luke's sister and niece.  Next time we need to get more family to come, it was awesome!

Bear Lake with Sandi and Makenzi

Us, beautiful as always

Eating yummy shakes from Bear Lake (PB and raspberry, not together)

Getting camp set up

Kenz and me

Us again.  See the beautiful area we stayed at? Ah, it's gorgeous.  I want to go back!

Me and Luke

Hey there little chipmunk

Our fire starter and peach cobbler maker. Thanks Luke!

Gorgeous lake!

Again, beautiful area.

Someone bring me more tomatoes!

Seriously! I could live off of tomatoes and peaches right now people.

(Don't judge this till you've tried it).


I was in college and Shea introduced me to the lovely tomoto sandwhich- 
"You've never had one of these before??" 
"No."
"First you toast the bread, cut up the tomato, put mayo on the bread, put the slices of tomato on, add a little salt, and voila!"

And there you have it. The tomato sandwich.
I'm pretty sure I remember eating them non stop for a week.  

It's back to that, thanks to our dear neighbor and Shea's mom for providing me with plenty of garden fresh tomatoes, I get to eat this about 3 times a day! :)

2 more favs

Here are 2 more favorites for your viewing pleasure!
Ah..I love this.


I may or may not have tried practicing several of these moves in my apartment after first watching this!

So You Think You Can Dance

Ah... I'm obsessed again.  Maybe I'll post here and there. I've got a list going of all my favorites. Here are 2 good ones :)

Love Melanie's audition (she ends up winning).


This routine is fabulous and who doesn't love Twitch? Plus, Alex is a ballet dancer, so seeing him do this hip hop routine is Uh.mazing.

Birthday Celebrations!

Happy 28th to Luke!
If you've had a birthday, shout hooray!

We celebrated Luke's birthday at the end of July.
Here is a little Happy Birthday beauty for you to enjoy:


Luke's birthday wouldn't be complete without a REAL Salt Lake game. They won!


A day-before-your-birthday breakfast of peaches and cream french toast. So yummy! (although it's more like bread pudding than french toast) recipe found here: Peaches and Cream French Toast 

A birthday wouldn't be complete without opening gifts!


Please notice the flip flops made by his niece that he is now wearing :)
Dinner at Tucanos
Festive decor in the yard.
Festive decor in the house
more gifts, plus cake


Breakfast the day after his birthday at Bruges Waffles and Frites.  It's a tiny little restaurant in Salt Lake. So delicious!


mmm hmm....this happened. Pin the tail on the donkey.  In our house, just the 2 of us= F.U.N.


Please enjoy some of the fun as well :)

Love you, Luke. Life is better with you in it.

summer sundays

This is what every other summer Sunday looks like for me.



I kind of love it.



Oh, dear. This wasn't really funny to me at the time, but now when I watch it I can't stop laughing :)
That little shove at the end came out of nowhere :)

luke-the soccer pro

I know you haven't heard much about Luke lately.  It's totally my fault. But, don't worry.  You get this post and another one coming soon.


Basically, he is the soccer pro.  He's been playing on a team that his brother and some friends put together and they play once a week.  I finally got out to one of his games and loved watching it!  He's quite the stud.  It's so great that he is doing something he loves and that he gets to do it with his brother. Luke was moving super fast on the field.  I was like, "Whoa. Where did this come from?"  Like I said guys, he's a pro!

There he be.
Running really fast...
 Great defending!
