End of Summer in Bear Lake & Utah

Hello again!  It's been a while since I last blogged, but lots has happened, so I need to get on it :)

I last left you preparing for our trip to Utah...and boy what a trip it was!  Seth and I flew to SLC two Fridays ago, whereby we flew in and directly hopped in a car to drive up to Bear Lake for a fun-filled weekend with the family in cabin by the lake!  All of the family (except Jack, who wasn't felling up to the trip) was there and we had a great time - from soaking up the sun, to eating (a TON!), to playing on the water, the trip was perfect!  In fact, the trip was even more fun the we had originally planned because, to our surprise, Jay (Seth's brother) secretly bought a boat and brought it with him...SO FUN!!!  Sadly, it really is true what they say: time flies when you're having fun, because before we knew it, Monday had rolled around and it was back to Salt Lake.

Bear Lake!!!

Seth, Evie, and I outside of Bear Lake Pizza...yum!
After getting back to the city, Seth and I spent some quality time with the fam, as well as enjoyed playing catch up with our friends (along with some food and fun/dancing, of course!)  The weekend before we headed home, Seth and I were lucky enough to have timed our visit right so that we were in town for Dan's (my next door roommate my Freshman year at BYU) wedding happy for him - and excited that he is moving to Virginia for a new job!  Finally, to wrap up the trip, we went with Mindy, Chrissy, and chillins to the Zoo, followed by a farewell dinner at La Puente (the family staple!)

We finally got to taste our wedding cake...1 year later!
Well, that's about all I've got for's time for bed...and I need to get in it and get some rest, because summer has officially come to an end and school is back in session!!!  More to come soon, but much love and gratitude for each and every one of you until then :)

PS: The picture below was made on, and is a mosaic of me, Seth, and Rev. Anita at the alter that is made up of our wedding pictures :)  Enjoy, and go make one of your own!

(Almost) End of Summer Update

Hi all - long time, no see...but I'm back in action and ready for a quick but EXCITING update :)

The last time I updated the Blog was heading into my last two weeks of work.  Well, my last bit at the office was busy and chocked full of fun, goodbyes, and worrrkkk!!!  Luckily for me, it all turned out well and last Thursday I was officially given an offer to return in fall of 2013 to start full-time employment as a full-fledged attorney.  All that stands in the way now if a year of school and that pesky bar exam...the first part of which I actually take on Friday!  If you'd like more information on the firm, please visit our website at:  I'm beyond thrilled to be at such an amazing place (voted the #3 law firm in the entire country to work for!!!) and will keep you updated about everything as things move along.

Other than that, its been a fairly uneventful few weeks other than celebrating our one-year anniversary and spending time with friends :)  But never fear, that's all about to change as we head off to Utah this Friday to wrap up our last few days of summer before school is back in session!  Until then, much love!!!

I love my lil' family :)
