New Hair-Do

Last week I was at work and decided that I was bored with my hair. So I called and made an appointment for the next day.
The 3 1/2 hours I spent at the Paul Mitchell school was well worth it.

Long Overdue...

This post is long overdue. Our summer has been fairly uneventful. And I am not very devoted to taking pictures so unfortunatly I don't many to post. Work and school have been pretty much our lives. Jake starts his last semester of school at BYU-I in a few weeks so we are really excited for school to start so that he can get through his last semester.

Jake and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary in July! Time flies! I am so lucky to have Jake because he is by far the best husband ever. To celebrate we went to Salt Lake and Logan. We hung out with family, went shopping and fun stuff like that, but the highlight of the trip was the Jack's Mannequin and Fray concert. They were awesome and I have to admit I have a bit of an obsession with both. It was so much fun we were so close to the stage.

We weren't allowed to take our cameras in so we snuck a few pictures with Jake's cell phone. Here is one of the lead singer of fray.

Here is a video of Jack's Mannequin. Can you see why I am obsessed?!

Birthday and Father's Day

It was Jake's birthday in May and once again I am late in posting about it. We had a lot of fun. We first went to dinner with Jake's family that lives here and we had so much fun.. we are going to miss them so much when they all leave us. Me and Jake then went to night at the museum. I didn't get many picture but I did get some of Jake blowing out his candles, yes we did sing to him and he did blow out candles :)

Also I missed father's day so I wanted to post about my dad. I have such a great dad, I look up to him a lot. He married my mom when I was 7 but I still consider him my dad and he is the greatest. I couldn't imagine my life without his influence.
Happy Father's Day Chuck!

I am also lucky to have such a great father-in-law. I couldn't have asked for a better one.

Mother's Day

SO I know this is a late post but I just had to post about how great my husband is. I am not a mother yet but Jake was so sweet and spoiled my anyway. He got me tickets to go see The Fray and Jack's Mannequin in Salt Lake! I was dropping hints for weeks that I wanted to go and Jake had me thinking that we wouldn't be able to, so it was a nice surprise when he got the tickets. I am so excited to go!!

Salt Lake Trip

For graduation my mom bought me tickets to Wicked the Musical in Salt Lake so I spent the weekend down there with my sister. It was a really fun weekend!

Wicked was amazing!!! I have already seen it in L.A. with Jake but it was just as good the second time. My seat was so close only 10 rows back from the stage right in the center.

We weren't allowed to take pictures inside the theatre but here is me and Jodi outside the Capitol Theatre. We were so excited and couldn't wait for it to start.

On Sunday morning we went to see Music and the Spoken Word at temple square. It was really neat, we got to be in the tabernacle when the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was recording the show. Afterwards we walked around temple square, it has been so long since I have been that it was really fun and I was taking pictures of just about everything.


This past week I Graduated with my Bachelors in Child Development!!!

All the events were so fun. Elder Neil L. Andersen came to speak at the commencement and then attended my convocation so I was presented my diploma by him and President Clark. We heard Elder Andersen speak three times total this last week and it was really neat.

I still can't believe that I am done. I am so happy that I stuck to it and finished! Here are some pictures from that day.
I didn't get a single picture where everyone was looking at the same camera, so there are some funny ones :)
