In celebration of mine and Kierstyn's birthdays we went to Salt Lake to see Wicked!!!!!! It was seriously one of THE most amazing things I've ever seen! If I used every positive adjective in the dictionary it wouldn't come close to explaining how awesome it was.

We made a stop at Trader Joe's specifically for my favorite Dark Chocolate Sea Salt almonds….and they were ALL GONE! Boo!
This is the one and only year I can say that I'm 39 and really mean it! :)
I had a wonderful day. It started off with a youth temple trip, I came home to a freshly baked chocolate cake and birthday decorations, painted in the shed with my favorite girl, and finished off with my favorite dinner (pizza) & my favorite show (SYTYCD)!
Got these beauties from my sweet friend Kim. I just love good mail!
Jewelee and Sadie decorated my van, filled it with balloons, baked me a cake and birthday-fied my house!
We were lucky to squeeze in a trip back to Tennessee for Heath's baptism and Kenco's Founders Day in early August. The kids were excited to surprise (most of) their cousins because they thought just Kyler was coming. Kelly and I dropped the kids off at Trip and Jen's house Friday night and headed to Chattanooga for the Kenco Shareholders Meeting on Saturday. As always it was nice to see extended family and walk around our old town. Sure do miss this downtown and walking bridge and trail!
The main reason for the trip was so that Kyler could baptize Heath. It was a super special day!
This sweet sister missionary is from Malta! She was my Zumba buddy before she left for her mission. She just so happened to be serving in Murfreesboro while we were home.
The kids had a ball with all their cousins!

I did the Advocare 24-day challenge this month. I really like how eating healthy food and drinking lots of water makes my body feel.
We held a Youth Wrestling Camp and had Andrew Hochstrasser come as our clinician. He was great and the boys really loved him. He stayed at our house for 3 days and after our camp was over he went to Mexico for the Pan-Am games…where he won gold!
My garden was pathetic but we did get a couple handfuls of peas and they were yummy. Next year...
Cleaning out an old folder I found some cute notes from days gone by:
My beauty all dolled up for a Vocal Camp recital
Youth Conference 2014 was so much fun! We only had 3 girls but us leaders had a great time too. I am so grateful for the amazing women I get to work with. It was also lots of fun to watch Kyler. :)
