Back to the N.O.C.

That's right. I went back to good ol' North Ogden City. I love it up there...& I love the friends I got to hang out with until the wee hours of the night. We started off with a little dinner at Iggi's.

Dana made us get 'grape lemonade' claiming it was the best thing ever. It was ok....I kid. It was good.

We went back to Dana's darling house & played a little "pounce."

Jade showing us her 'Raptor' way of shuffling cards.

Marlee the Champ.

Not to worry...Dana & I came in dead last with a combined score of 80. That's how we roll.
After we got tired of being spanked by Marlee & her mad Pounce playing skills we decided to try our luck at Rock Band.

Jade plays on Expert...notice the determined look to get us all back in the game.

All in all it was a fun night back in the hood! I need more nights where I get a belly workout by laughing so hard.

My dear friend Dari made this headband & she make tons of other dynamite ones! She sells them on Etsy. To go look through her garb go to & you can get to her Etsy shoppe from there! She sells precious baby headbands too! You won't regret it!

As of late....

Hey everybody! Remember me? Yes I am still around. Just not by a computer....well one where I can sit long enough to blog anything worth looking at. (not that anything ever is worth looking at) But I am here to tell y'all what's been going on.

I cut my hair. It may even be shorter then this now. I'm a crazy person for cutting it so dang short.

Littlest brosif graduated. I feel old.

4th o' July

Our friend Nate got a flesh eating, terminal disease from Fiji.

Girls night's & cup cakes!

I camped in Moab!

I'm pretty sure it has been raining in Utah for the past, what 3 months? So when we went down to Moab & were CAMPING I was a bit leery. Camping, raining, camping, no showers, holes for toilets...but I went anyway cause I knew I needed to make myself a better/stronger camper. I done myself proud. & all you other campers out there too.

{Me being proud of myself}
So our friend Nathan road his bike from Highland, UT to Moab, UT. All by himself some 214 miles or something like that. Took him 2 days.

{Pretty sure this is how he felt most of the ride}
But we all made it & set up camp, made some camp fire food & talked about life & stuff. Skin walkers were ever brought up...creepy. Even though it rained a bit that night..just a wee bit. I did fine! I had 2 tylenol PM's in me & I slept like a babe!

I'm just glad I had a tent. That morning we decided we would hike. We knew it was going to rain, so we purchased some emergency ponchos just incase. The boys also got some hats.

You know to keep the rain out of their eyes. It helped real good.
We started with the 'Windows' Trail. I hate windows. I'm a Mac. Har.

Nathan's really good at YOGA ladies. That's why he & Mike are in a bromance. It's cute. After the Windows trail we headed over to The Delicate Arch trail. This is the arch you can all see on the Utah license plate. I've now been there twice. {go me.} On our way up we had to have a bit of fun with the boys hats & it seemed perfect that I wore a red hoody.

It a pretty hardy trail & it started to get hot towards the top we were excited to see some sun.

Good thing we brought our emergency ponchos!

It was a thunder & lightning freak show! I was running just to get to the car & I was soaked from the hips down & the elbows down. That's all that crappy poncho was good for. Plus I had to hold the hood up to keep my head dry so the rain was stinging my hands! My feet were all sloshing from running through the river that suddenly appeared from all the rain. It was crazy. I heard kids crying as I rad past them. Even though it was hard to hear through the thunder. We finally made it to the car & got to the Landscape Arch trail just as the storm passed.

So the Landscape Arch was suppose to be the Delicate Arch & vice versa. You can probably tell why, but the switched it on the map & kept it that way ever since. We hiked to other arches this hike & then took the 'Primitive Trail' back. That was a mistake. Well there were lotsa mistakes on this hike. We didn't take water cause we were just going to Landscape first then we just kept going for like 6 miles. No joke! & our shoes were wet with sand in them! It was crazy I tell you.

We hiked about 13 miles that day. 6 without water. We rewarded ourselves with mediocre Mexican food. But it was oh so good at the time! We slept well too! Even though when we got back from our hike our tent was all discombobulated from the storm. It had almost landed in the Colorado River. Thankfully the brush held it from floating away. & thanks to Whitney, Lindsay & Andie for saving it & putting it back together. The next day we packed up camp. & headed out to Canyonlands for a few hours. You need more like a few days to see this place. But we did observe all of it's glory. It was grand.

Isn't it bromantic?
