The beach vs. the mountains, I just can't decide which I love more. Who says I have to take sides anyway? Since there are not really any mountains where I am at in CA, I will go to the beach instead. I do miss the mountains in Utah a lot but luckily its just a 10 hour drive and when I go, it can be for longer than just a weekend, usually, so it's sort of like the best of both worlds in a way.

These are going to be an assortment of random pictures that I dont really have a blog post to put them in so they can all go in to one!
Hiked to "The Living Room" in SLC by the U on Wednesday night. Okay, I didn't make it all the way to the top but the view where I stopped was pretty legit!

Since Tony has every other Friday off from work he rents a car and drives to Utah to hang out and do stuff with me for the weekend. I love it! He usually can leave work in the early afternoon on Thursday and gets in by midnight or so that night to Salt Lake. I have to work on Friday but that gives him time to do errands or pack some stuff or take boxes to our storage unit.
Friday nights we've been able to go to movies in the park again.

I was able to go on a preview of the Parade of Homes for Salt Lake City last Friday before I went to Venture Night Out movie in the park with Tony. It was really fun to walk through some of the homes - these ones were in South Jordan in the Daybreak community.
Check out some of the neat things I saw!

Tony and I attended a few of these events last summer and have gotten to go to a few already this year. Millcreek hosts a night out at a different park each week for anyone who wants to go. They have food trucks, activities for kids and adults and an outdoor movie! These events are my favorite Friday night activity.
Here are some fun pictures from the ones we have gone to!

My main reason for going to Liberty Park on Pioneer Day was to catch Pokemon at an event happening at the Tracy Aviary. I have not been to the aviary for awhile and its one of my favorite spots in Utah - plus it has owls! We had just gotten to the park (its HUGE) and I saw a lady on a bicycle - she had a real live parrot on her bike too! I ended up getting to hold her guy, Medusa. The sweetest parrot! She got him from the day he was born pretty much and has raised him and bonded with him. He rides around everywhere with her. He doesn't bite hard. He doesn't fly away. Maybe if I raised a parrot from day 1 I would not be scared of their big beaks.

My birthday was July 10th and we celebrated on the 9th by going to Bear World in Idaho. So so fun. Each week I wanted to do something that friends could come to so one week was a movie in the park, nobody came. The next week was Draper Days and no one was able to come to that either. Next I did a night at Create Donut which is a new dessert place in Sandy. I actually had quite a few friends that were able to come. Hooray! Here are a few pictures from that night but sadly I did not take many at all because I was too busy talking to everyone!

I missed this event last year but it is so very fun and I'm glad it worked out to go this year. Tony's cousin Joey and I went together. You could buy tickets for $1 and got a sheet of paper that said all the vendors, what food they were offering and how many tickets each thing was. I think most foods were 4 tickets or less.

I've been trying to fill up mine and Tony's week with something fun every day/night. Tony has been really wanting to take my nephew Riley (age 4) to Lagoon for awhile and of course the day before he has to drive to California to start his new job is the only day that works for us to take him. In the end my sister came too and brought Reese (age 2) as well.

The 4th of July celebrations started on June 30th this year. There were hot air balloons flying on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. Tony & I decided to drive down with our teardrop on Friday night, stay the night at the field and watch the hot air balloons take off in the morning. The ETA was for 6am and we did not want to get up at 5 to drive down to Provo. Our plan worked great and in the end the balloons did not really start inflating until 630am or so.

Tony & I got to go together to view more homes in the Utah Valley Parade of Homes. I went last week with my friend Tiffany and was so excited to have Tony join me on the tour this week. We spent most of our time in Highland and Lehi.

Let me just start by saying, if you still have not been able to go see Cavalia behind the South Towne Mall in Sandy, Utah, take the time to go see it! A deal on the website is to buy 6 tickets and get 6 for free. The show leaves Utah on June 20th so you have a week or so left to go see how cool and amazing it is.

I got 2 tickets to tour the Parade of Homes in Utah Valley and my former coworker and friend, Tiffany, goes every year and so I immediately thought to invite her. We were able to go out on a Wednesday evening and started in the Alpine are because it had the million dollar homes.

YOU GUYS! I had an incredible time at a brand new conference yesterday and just wanted to share with you all some of my pictures and thoughts about the day.
But first things first - the conference is happening again next year and tickets are half off until tonight at midnight MST! Go to the Everything Food blog conference page to purchase tickets.
A friend had invited me to volunteer with her. She ended up having to cancel and I almost did too because my Saturday's are precious and I try to only do whatever I really want to do! I'm soo glad I did not cancel though because it was the most amazing day ever an I'm not even a food blogger!

My friend Celeste invited me to a benefit concert for the Early Light Academy in South Jordan and none other than Kirby Heyborne was performing! So exciting. I got tickets for myself and Tony on Thursday night and it was actually a pretty small crowd that watched him perform - lucky for us!

April was the craziest month of all months so far this year! I graduated from LDSBC and the next weekend Tony graduated from BYU. I was able to borrow my graduation gown from a friend so I could hang on to it for some extra time to get pictures with Tony the weekend he graduated....

Hello my friends! If you live in Utah or know someone who does, this is a contest you are going to want to enter! Have you drive by the South Towne mall and seen a huge ginormous white tent set up in the parking lot on the west side? Or billboards up and down the i-15 for a show called, Cavalia?
If you've looked at ticket prices, it can be pretty spendy to go but this is the status of a Vegas show in my mind - live horses, acrobats and lots of action!
It is going to be amazing!
