Catch up!

As promised, I have been doing horrible at blogging.  

Here is a quick update.

We had a marvelous 4th of July with Taylor's family.  I love fireworks, and the fourth.  Last year we were in Seattle for the fireworks and it was AMAZING. While Brigham City's fireworks weren't quite that grandiose, they never disappoint.

The next day we headed to Vegas with the Hennessy's.  We had a blast!

Highlights included:

New York New York Rollercoaster

Third row tickets to the Cirque Du Soleil show Mystere

Taylor getting called on stage and me getting spotlighted at the show

Wax Museum

Amazing balcony seat at Planet Hollywood restaurant

and laying by the pool!

Mmmm.  Lets go back today!

As I previously mentioned, we moved.  Everyone was so nice to come and help us and we couldn't have done it without you!  Thank you Thank you Thank you!

We are pretty much all settled in now.  We have enjoyed having friends and family over and having SO much more space.  As promised, I will post pictures later.  Moving takes a lot out of you!  

Taylor has been doing PR for the Cache Gran Fondo bike race that was in Logan this year.  The race was last Saturday and everything went so well! He has been enjoying a lighter work load since that is done.  He has also been enjoying driving his RC car around the acre field we now have to take care of behind our house.  He's like a kid in a candy shop! 

Tomorrow we leave for Arizona!  We cannot wait to see family and celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary.

Quick Update

Taylor and I have kind of been off the grid lately.

We had a wonderful 4th of July.  Vegas was AMAZING.  More deets and pictures to come.

We came home from Vegas and immediately started packing up our belongings... because.... we are moving.


We could not be happier.  We are moving just around the corner, but instead of living in a two bedroom apartment we will be living in a four bedroom gigantic house.  It is pretty old school.  But we are loving it.  Lots of pictures to come.

I can't wait to share all of our exciting adventures.

Get ready for the longest post ever.  I will try and keep things brief.

I did some more crafting! I have had this necklace for about six months and hardly wore it. 
Then I saw these lovelies in a couple stores.

So I made this. (Just ignore the stupid poses, it was surprisingly hard to get a picture of it!) I also got these mint leggings and have been having the hardest time trying to find something that goes with them.  This necklace and those leggings were M.F.E.O. 

 Next item on the agenda - Girls' Camp!  This was definitely a different experience.  I had no idea how hard girls camp is when you are on the opposite side of things!  Past YW/Camp Leaders, THANK YOU!
 Pedicures and pampering after the hike.

 Literally two hours after I arrived home from girls camp we went to Ogdentown for a surprise party for my bro-in-law, Jaron.  My sister Kristen made these adorable tennis ball cupcakes for him!  I still need to get the rest of the pictures from my dad!  We had a wonderful evening!  Happy Birthday Jaron! Sorry you don't get an entire picture post dedicated to you like Kara did :)

The next morning we left for a large Robertson family reunion.  It was so amazing to see everyone and spend time with family.  We love you all!  There were games and the longest slide EVER.  

My grandma was working the leopard spotted PJs!

Matching hair!

Egg Toss.  Shala and Adam Killed it!

I hope you can all see this - Jens had a bomb tan line.  My sister, Shala, applied a large amount of sunscreen to this child when he went swimming, but forgot to account for the sag of the trunks once they become wet.  haha

This was the valley that we stayed in.  It was beautiful.  Kyle, Taylor, and I even got to sleep on the balcony under the stars.  It was so great. 

 Prettiest drive home ever!

 Finally we are home!  But not for long!  Thursday we leave for Vegas with the Hennessys!  

Below is the new addition to our house.  This arrived at my work completely smashed to pieces.  I salvaged it from the garbage and glued it back together!  Boo ya.  It doesn't look that tall, but it is at least 24" from the base to the top of the head.  I love it.
