Sunshine in San Francisco

We took a trip to San Francisco. Amazing. Artistic. I love a new place. We originally went for my sis-n-laws reception and to go through the temple with her. Yea for Ashley and Alden getting married tomorrow.... and yea for love.

The love birds at their reception

Besides the reception we had a few days for sight seeing. We drove around San Francisco. That place it an artistic haven. Every side shop and house and door was beautiful full of creativity. I wish I could have taken a picture of every shop I walked by.

Loven at the Golden Gate

We went and walked by the bay. Loved it of course. I love any body of water bigger than a bathtub. But it was beautiful. I could go for a morning stroll there every day.

breakers making so cash by the bay

R, Hayden, and I hiked down this huge mountain you'll see in the next pictures in sandals (scary) and walked on this beach. It was so much fun. There was so much metal and such washed up on the shore. There was a car, heaps of metal, legos, and more. Hayden was our explorer and made a sweet instillation. Go Hayden.

We climbed that and look at the art in the sand

The next day the whole family went to a baseball game at the Giants stadium. It was right no the water and had the most beautiful view. The game wasn't so bad either. They were playing the Oakland A's. My first major league baseball game but definitely won't be my last.

Me and Branae walking out of the game

Dear San Francisco,

I love you. You are beautiful. Hopefully we'll see you again soon!


His & Hers

At this very moment in time I am sitting in the basement of the spori (the art building at BYU Idaho) playing on the computer while R frantically tries to get his homework done. For a lack of anything else to do I will fill you in on our lovely lives.


*R is crazy with school. He's getting into his graphic and photography major now and has lots on his plate. He's doing good so far and hopefully won't get too burnt out before the semester comes to an end.
* R got a new pair of Madix jeans in the mail. Thank you Whiskey Militia for your generous deals.
* While I was in Bear Lake with my mum R got to have a little R&R with his guys which consisted of going out to eat and lots of rock band. It was good for him, but not much accomplished.
* R is in love with his new phone and the sweet application that will let him download any song for FREE! I love this 2 since I now have the new Jack Johnson cd to listen to and memorize.
* R is looking very attractive in his sweats and wolf shirt. I'll make him howl later tonight....
* what Ry wishes he could do all day is long board. We've always liked to mess around but he's become obsessed, in a good way, and wishes he could skate all day. I wish he could too.


* I started working back at Carino's since the finding a teaching job is nearly impossible. I was super sad, but thanks to all my friends there it hasn't been too bad of a transition. Thanks u all.
* I'm working on different projects, painting pictures, making books, fixing up old furniture and LOVING all the creativity time. I'm hoping to get my one big idea that takes off and makes me *RICH*
* for the time being I'm trying to get a booth at the Rexburg Farmers Market to sell my art for way to cheap, but would still be exciting to sell.
* I went back to my parents house with my mom in Bear Lake to help with yard work for the day/night. It was so peaceful and nice. I wish I could live there all summer.
* I bought some True Religion jeans from China... for $20. I'm not a huge fan of the jeans, but couldn't pass up the opportunity. I can't wait to see how terrible or wonderful they look. I'll keep you posted.
* R and I just got back from San Francisco. It was amazing. post coming soon I promise.


Memorial Weekend

I was waiting for to get more pics before I posted, but I'm just to lazy to get them all out. Over Memorial day a bunch of us went camping up by Grand Targee. Besides the snow in our camp ground and the 32 degree weather at night it was good times. Mostly our time was spent sitting by the fire, or if you're me sitting on the fire, chatting away.

The next day we all took our long boards and road down the Targee road. Everyone besides me is amazing. I'm a first timer and was really nervous. Ryley was super sweet and stayed with me the whole time helping me practice sliding and making me go faster than I really wanted to. I learned tons and it was actually way fun. I wish I had a picture of my pants because they are seriously shredded. Gone. Guess I'll be buying some patches and duct tape soon... sorry pants, but it was worth it!


To the Sea

Jack Johnson came out with his new cd this week. I know that some of you are sick of jack, but I won't ever be. I love his lyrics and his chill voice and the fact that he's a softie. He always has at least one song that is sweet and happy and it's my favorite. The lyrics go like this....

"From The Clouds"

Oh, you're such a pretty thing, I'll take you and I'll make you all mine.

I will steal you from this patient world that'll chase us, it could never take you back.

We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
It's not ours.

And I know you know me well enough to know I'm lucky to have you.
But all this just the little things, the words that I should tell you all the time.
You're so sweet to me when you beat me in doubles solitaire.
You're so sweet to me in a world that's not always fair.

We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.
We could watch it from the clouds
We can't stop it anyhow, it's not ours.

More that you feel
More your little heart will ache.
Love's the only thing that carries on
It's the only thing this world can't take.
This love is ours.
This love is ours.
This love is oooohoohoohoohoohoohoohooh.
This love is oooohoohoohoohoohoohoohooh.

Oh you're such a pretty thing, I'll take you and I'll make you all mine.

And the lyrics sound like this...
