Wildflower Festival Alta Ski Resort


Headed up to Alta Ski resort for the Wildflower Festival. I was in Utah last year for this and it was so fun! I took my nephews and my friend Karina and we had a fun easy hike. This year was no different in the hiking category but the friends who were able to go with me were different this time around.

VidCon, CVX Live & My Favorite YouTuber's!

This post contains affiliate links


I went to the first 3 years of a YouTube conference called VidCon in L.A which was totally awesome except for when it wasn't...the 3rd year for me got too big, too fan-girl'ish and a bit too crazy. Then, a few years down the road, Utah started CVX Live - their version of a YouTube conference and I've gone every year since it started because I really enjoyed it even though I don't make videos on a consistent basis. Keep reading to find out who some of my favorite YouTuber's are and for a discount code to CVX Live!

Disneyland Fun Day 1


I can't believe I have not been to Disneyland since 2012. Tony and I had been married for 1 year and I wanted to go and so I saved up the money and we took a trip from Salt lake to  Anaheim and had the best time ever. After that we got really busy with school, work, weekend roadtrips and just life in Utah. Fast forward to 2018 and we've lived in California for almost 2 years but have never taken the opportunity to go even though we are a couple hours away. Oh the horror!

Turning 29 - Again!



Tony woke me up with breakfast on July 10th - hooray!

He made me an owl pancake, eggs, bacon and a side of strawberries.

What's next?!

Woodland Sunflowers


I don't remember there being SO MANY sunflower fields in and around Woodland ever before but it was quite fun to get some photos while I was in the area. I really couldn't get enough!

Why I Love Camp Ritchie So Much



Natalie, Leslie, me and Linda at campfire!

There are really no words to describe what it felt like being able to go up to girls camp in Pioneer, CA for the day on Wednesday, July 4th.

2018 Birthday Deals




I put together a birthday deals blog post a few years ago and tried to update it once but it is soo much easier just to make a whole new post. I've joined various email lists throughout the years and have compiled the deals from all of them for you. Some deals require an app, some just require showing the offer on your phone, a few you have to print out. I don't think all these deals are super great but some really are! Enjoy.

Fourth of July Traditions


I'm a big believer of traditions, especially when holidays are involved. Traditions include activities, food and of course, outfits. July is the best month to wear a lot of red, white and blue.

Eddie World Stop


See the moon?

Ever heard of Eddie World? I only heard about it / saw it when I was driving by on my way through Las Vegas. It's on the Calico Road exit and always looked like a neat place to stop. Well, finally made it happen! I really needed gas and Gas Buddy app said it'd be $3.15...

Seven Magic Mountains Stop!


I debated stopping here on my way back from Utah because I had food in the cooler and a cold bag but the ice was melting, of course, after 10 hours it would! But! I knew I would have regrets if I didn't..especially because the sun was kinda right where I wanted it so I took the exit and there I was!

Last Sunday in Utah


Laura shared her dessert from Last Course in Draper. It was pretty sweet, lemon 16 layer cake with white chocolate sauce and berries! I only had a bite but it was oh so good.

A Saturday Well Spent


Saturday was my last full day in Utah to really get everything done that I needed to.

Started out with yard sales in Daybreak and man, Laura and I only covered a small fraction before she had to get home so Rocky could go sell tires. I wanted to go back out, and could have, but I had a ton to get done and just until probably 9pm to do it.

Let's Go to Utah!


Yep..you read that right. After about a week and a half of being back in CA, it was time to go back to Utah. I got to make a fun stop on the way though to stay the night and hang out with my friend Kylee in Logandale and we took her Razr out the next morning for some fun desert views. Check it out!

Chinese Lantern Festival - Utah



My friend Karina invited me to go to the Chinese Lantern festival with her however the day we were supposed to go was crazy windy and the event was canceled for that day. I ended up being able to go at a later date but unfortunatley she wasn't - boo - so I took my nephews with me instead. This event was crazy cool, lots of photo moments and goes until May 6 so you can still have a chance to go!

Let's Create Expo Day!


Saturday I was at the Let's Create Expo from 1-6pm. The morning was spent going to yard sales with my sister and we found some pretty great stuff. I was also excited to be able to work at the expo again and this time instead of working at the Tall Mouse booth, I was over the VIP area. 

Sandy, South & West Jordan



I was able to join my family at the Jordan River temple open house on Thursday morning before I needed to head to the Sandy Expo Center to help set up for the Let's Create Expo.

Wednesday is the Only Day




Wednesday I woke up super stressed because I had a lot to get done and it was the only full day my parents were going to be in town. Where I was staying at, Tony's cousins house, they are working on putting it up for sale so Joey asked me to take Charlie and Daphne to my car so they didn't bother the lady coming over. Well..
