Utah & House Decorating!

So, on Friday Sept. 9th it was my sister Tianna's birthday. She turned the big 18! Every year on her birthday i have always surprised her and I wasn't going to miss this year! She lives in Orem, Utah now so Presten, Tanessa (my youngest sister) and I headed up to Utah to surprise her. My Aunt Katrina knew that we were coming and was trying not to let Tianna know about it. When we got there we rang the door bell and were so excited to surprise her. She opens the door, and the first thing she says as she hugs us is, "why are you guys here? Ha, you guys are so weird" hahah a typical Tianna statement haha. We took her to dinner at PF Changs with a whole bunch of people. Afterwards we went bowling and than she received a phone call from Olive Garden telling her she was hired! What more could a girl ask for, friends, family and a job! The next day we hung out with the Waite's and watched Mack's soccer game. Lily and sophie fixed Presten's hair for the game and made him look beautiful! All in all we had a WONDERFUL weekend vacation with the family! Wish we could have stayed longer.
We may have been a LIL' bored on the drive huh

After our wonderful vaca we came back home to School for Presten and work for me. Presten had a presentation he had to give on Tuesday to his class and he presented on newlywed finances. He thinks it went well but I felt bad because I was sick last week and got him sick, so he had to do his presentation while being sick. I know, what a great wife I am. Well tonight after work I came home and just had some new energy. I went through and cleaned up all the clutter and had Presten help me decorate! woo hoo! It feels so nice and is SO fun to decorate your own house! Who knew I'd like decorating so much? Here's some pics of our new lil' place! Well that's all for now! until next time!

Labor Day Weekend

This weekend we have had a blast! Friday was the first performance for the High School dance team here at Durango High School. My mom is the head coach of the dance team and the Varsity team girls were performing during half time, and the JV and Varsity girls were performing throughout the night on the sidelines. Presten and I went and supported my mom and the dance team and had a blast! We started the night off by going to Mama's boy with my cousin Staysha and her friend Melissa. We had a delicious dinner (pizza of course) and great laughs and fun. After dinner we headed to the football game. I was able to see all of our girls that I coached on the JV team when I coached last year and to be honest it made me SO sad to not be with them this year. I for sure miss them, we had some FUN times together. After the game we had a FULL house! Staysha and Melissa stayed the night with Tanessa and our family friend Mikayla upstairs; we then had a surprise phone call from some Elders that used to serve in our area and are now off their missions and living in Utah, they wanted to come for a visit and brought Tianna (my little sister that is now living in Utah); We also had our friend Keti and his friend stay the night and needless to say we had quite the fun house last night!
Today we were all able to go Silverton today and got to go riding and four wheeling. We went with the McBrides (my Dad's sister and her family), the Farley's (My dad's brother and his family) and my family (mom, dad, tanessa, tianna and mikayla). It was colder than last time but we had a great time. We were able to go and explore an old ghost town that was there and have some good wholesome fun while Tianna's visiting us :) Here's a few pictures of our fun....

All Ready with their AWESOME sunglasses from the 80's...STYLIN'!

An old abandoned ruin. Where we were camped out used to be a town itself, CRAZY!

Mikayla fell in the river and was soaked up to her knees so she had to ring out her shoes and try to dry off in the sun. 

Our spectacular lunch view 


Staysha, Mikayla and Tanessa jeepin' it with us

Random toilet in the middle of nowhere, just had to be documented ha

Old abandoned ghost town. We were able to go in and check out all of the empty houses. It was so neat!

They were afraid they were gonna fall through the floor ha!

This is where they put the kids that were bad....Well so we assume. These girls were naughty and were put in time out

Then it was us who got put in time out :(
