Slickrock of Death

We went down to Moab for the long weekend. My brothers were really wanting to do Slickrock and asked if Davis and I wanted to join. I was reluctant (because I didn't want to hold them back), but they talked me into it. I think it was probably the hardest thing I've ever been talked into. The first couple of hours were fun... screaming down the shoots, and pedaling my little heart back up, but at lunch (when we stopped and shared a granola bar and a couple of almonds because we were told it would only take us around 2 hours... it took over double that) my body was ready to be done, and we weren't even half way!! Then we ran out of water, and I started thinking about what would happen if I just sat myself down and died. Somehow we made it out alive, and it was actually a lot of fun despite the pain my ENTIRE body was feeling. My bros were nice and took good care of us while they were waiting for us. It gave them plenty of time to take millions of pics of the fancy sights....

The past week has been a little crazy with all of the running around I've been doing. I'm pretty sure Lyla and I cover more miles in the Prius than any other duo in the history of human life. The weird thing is even with all of the running around I'm feeling so fulfilled. In the last five days I've spent crazy hours at my TWO jobs that I am loving, attended a fun fam dinner, long boarded down the canyon, pumped the boys up for Duck over Sushi desserts, camped out with besties in the pouring rain, sang and danced my heart out at the best concert of my life, was on 2News!, had a girlie sleepover, ate a fancy dinner with my grandpa, shopped with my mom, gone on after-work river walks, AND caught up on TV homework with D Dawg. Ah! None of this is anything fancy but love being busy and spending time with the people I love. Here's to more of that in the desert sun this weekend!

Bad Angle

After a long day at work we went up the canyon and walked around for a few hours. It was kind of amazing. I wanted a fam pic so we asked a stranger. I gave her my phone and she immediately got down on her knee to take the pic. Ugh. I always hate that. I never want to be mean and bossy when randoms are being nice to take a pic but really... Aren't people aware that pics taken like that are always horrible?? It's a lesson everyone needs to learn just to be a good citizen of the world. Don't you think??

Here's to Hoping

That tomorrow is as nice as last Saturday. We went hiking up Provo Canyon and it felt amazing to get some sun on the shoulders. Lyla was in heaven.

A Favorite Treat

The remnants of the tampon I caught Lyla with. She can find them anywhere and she's obsessed.

sushi night

Since I've known The Eastmans for basically my entire life, I knew that when they invited us over for dinner it would NOT disappoint. Let's just say they lived up to the expectations. We made our very own sushi with ALL of the fixings. I wish we took better pics of the spread because it was so fancy with eel, spicy tuna, tuna, salmon, cream cheese, loads of veggies and a few sweet touches. I'm kind of obsessed and want to start making our own too. There's just something about rolling up all of the goodness that is so satisfying. I feel a new hobby coming on.

Ragnar SoCal 2011

A couple of weeks ago we ran Ragnar SoCal with our friends who all have connections to NYC in one way or another. Mary beat to posting most of the pics, but here are a few more... Our whole team, Van2, us at the finish line, and a well deserved dip in the hot tub once we were all done. Good times... can we just move to Cali now??
