Bear Lake

This weekend while Nick was out of town at a conference in Las Vegas I went with the rest of his family up to Bear Lake for one GREAT WEEKEND!!! We had a blast! Such a great family and I am so glad that I get to be a part of it.
Family blackjack night... ( I won... no big deal.)

Some of my adorable nieces and nephews-to-be!!
Heading out for a day on the lake!

Jayci was my bud the whole weekend. She is the sweetest little thing.

It's Ya Burfday...

Today is the day that the woman I call my mother was born... She is the greatest woman I know. She teaches me daily and makes me want to be better. She has shown me that ANYTHING is possible--whether that is raising children on your own or getting blood out of something that has been there for 3 years--

We do go at it from time to time... which more times than not is because we are more alike than we realize. She taught me how to be independent, how to tie my shoes, how to make my own lunch in kindergarten consisting of a cheese and bread sandwich, cheetos, string cheese, and orange tang.

My mom is wonder woman (if you didn't know). She can pack a suitcase to perfection and make a mean homemade pizza.

She is currently helping me plan a wedding... which I do believe may be the largest challenge she has yet to face =) I can't think of a better person to help me do this.
Thank you Mom, for being the best person I know and teaching me to always love those around me... even if it isn't what I want to do. I LOVE YOU!

Bow to your partner.

This morning at the prime time of 7:30 am I had the lovely privilege of learning how to SQAURE DANCE!!!!

Not going to lie... probably the most fun I have had in a long time. I feel somewhat deprived that being from the south that I haven't been square dancing before now. I wouldn't mind one bit keeping this up till I'm an old lady =)

In my class, we will be square dancing for the next 3 weeks. CANNOT WAIT! We are also going to learn ballroom, the waltz, swing, and aerobic dance. This class is right up my ally!
