{ An afternoon with Nan }

Nan and I had an afternoon together while pop was at a doctors appointment and I decided to take her downtown and walk temple square. It was such a { lovely } day and we enjoyed ourselves so much.

I love seeing things through her eyes because she has different perspectives than me and it is neat to watch her reaction and hear her opinions. She loved meeting all the cute sister missionaries and smelling the beautiful flowers.

This place is very special to me and brings me peace during the difficult times in my life. It stands as a firm reminder that life's problems will pass but that there are { bigger and more important } things that will always remain.

I am thankful for Nan and for the opportunity to spend the day with her. I already want to do it again.

{ German sunday }

On Sunday we roasted German bratwurst over the fire. I seriously have had a hankering for summer and cookouts like this so I was in heaven. I swear that if I closed my eyes I would be sitting around a campfire at bear lake. I wish. If you have never cooked bratwurst over the fire before you are { seriously } missing out.

{ Megan & Cody say I do! }

Our friends Meagan and Cody got married last weekend in St. George. It was incredible weather and we loved getting to see so many familiar faces and enjoy the celebration of their union.

Meagan made a gorgeous bride and I loved getting to share this special day with them. Their venue was the falls in St. George on the outskirts and had amazing views.

The night ended with a super fun dance party outside under the sunset. As Brian and I danced along with them we talked about how crazy it was that it has almost been three years since we did all of this. I can hardly believe it sometimes how the time has flown.

Congrats friends! We love you and wish you a marriage full of laughter, happiness and good times! Thank you for letting us share your special day :)

{ St. George and the Bear Paw }

I have a special place in my heart for this little town. I went to Dixie State College in St. George for two years after high school, and in some ways this place feels like a second home to me. I have so many memories here and it was fun to share lots of those with Brian. We skipped town for a wedding and were welcomed with the sun! I was excited because back in salt lake the weather seems confused what season it is.

My roommates and I used to brunch at this amazing place called the Bear Paw. I forgot how huge the portions were and we weren't able to even finish half of it. As always it was delicious!

{ would you like fries with that? }

In and out burger opened in our neighborhood during the summer last year. We finally braved the crowds { you should see how many people actually wait in line } and got a burger. The night we went the power was out in our city so we decided to go there for dinner. Yum-o!

{ Mini me }

It is pretty hard to be smaller than Bentley. She is four pounds of furry goodness but it happened last week. This cute lady brought me this toy yorkie to work last week just to be sweet cause she knows we love em! And this is the photo evidence that Bentley actually is bigger than something. haha!

{ Fancy schmancy }

I of course am referring to the desserts we ate in Vegas. Not me dressed up to eat them all! But if you thought we were both fancy I could easily forgive that . . . easy mistake :)

{ Recognition night }

In Vegas we got to attend some award dinners for Brian and his company. We got to see lots of familiar faces and celebrate all these cute talented hardworking guys!

Brian won District Manager of the year for his region and was the highest district in the company for overall sales and gross profit. He works so hard for his company and loves his job and it was so fun to see him get recognized for it!

I love you dearest. I am so proud of you and all that you accomplish. You are so amazing to me. xoxo.

{ A room smarter than I am }

We were fortunate enough to travel to Las Vegas for Brian's annual sales summit for his company. He did really well this year so I was lucky enough to go with him! They always take really good care of us and put us at this beautiful place called the M resort. It is about 15 miles away from the strip and is a lovely hotel. Apparently it is really high tech and I laughed as I tried to figure it all out. Here are some of the highlights:

When you first walk in there are no light switches right by the door like you would think there would be. Instead you see this little slot for you to put your room key in.

As soon as you do all the power in the room turns on. I thought it was pretty clever and had fun taking the key out and watching it turn all off then putting it back in and watching it all turn on.

Then you have the bathroom.

The bathtub had this little shade in front of it. I pressed a button on the wall and then it opened leaving the glass clear so you could see this view of the strip from the bathtub.

Yes I totally took a bath and looked out the window. . . But only before I walked outside and checked that you couldn't see in first!

Then as I was getting ready I clicked a switch in the bathroom by the sink and my mirror turned into a television. Fancy that!

Don't mind all my stuff. . . I am a messy little traveler.

But pretty funny huh? I thought so. I felt pretty clever for figuring it all out. I had never seen anything like it. Brian being all techno savvy like he is loved it all.

{ Room service }

One sleepy morning in Vegas we ordered room service. Spendy, but oh so worth it. I would be lying if I said we didn't polish it ALL OFF :)
