Fun Filled Fall

This weekend was so much fun!
Friday-My friend Jason was in town, he works for the Boise, ID hockey team. They were in town playing the SLC Grizzly hockey team and Jason was able to get me some tickets to the game. Friday night I went with my friend Carissa. We then met up with Jason after for some late supper.
Saturday-Sleep time! I feel like I am still trying to catch up on some zzz's from being sick and our trip to Portland. Ben and I slept in. I then picked up Jason as he had some time off in the afternoon. Jason and I went to a park so he could run and I walked Izzie around. It was a beautiful day out, until it started raining a little bit. We then ate some lunch and took Jason back to work. Ben and I then went and carved some pumpkins! I was so happy to be able to get a pumpkin carved this year. Ben and I didn't have a chance to carve pumpkins last year, and it was so much fun to be able to do it. It was raining for a while outside, but we managed to get them done. We then went to the hockey game that night. It was Breast Cancer night, the Utah team wore all pink. We also got to see a big fight, helments and gloves off fight! The Idaho Steelheads won, both nights, yay!
Sunday-Slept in AGAIN! So nice and relaxing. I have been wanting to make a potato soup that I found on the 365 days of crock pot blog. I woke up and then put together the soup, watched my TV shows and then Izzie and I took a nap. It was a beautiful day out, and I spent it on the couch. It was nice though, I got my cleaning and shopping done, then when Ben came back, we cleaned up the yard and ate. Ben loved the soup, it was a big hit! I also make some sausage and croissants. I got some wedding pictures ordered and also had a free wedding book to get together, which I did. It feels amazing to get that done!
Now just going to relax up for a week at work. It feels good to have a great weekend behind me and getting ready for a new week at work.
**On a side note, Heather is getting ready to get her new office open. I spoke with her and will help out as much as I can from here. I also had a chance to talk to my mom, and dad got a early present, he traded in his motorcycle and got a new one! My mom sent some pics of it and it is a very nice looking bike. I can't wait to see it on Thanksgiving.
Second night of hockey, Idaho won!

First trip after the wedding

Ben and I had our honeymoon!!
Actually just a quick trip to visit our friend Michelle up in Portland.
Ben and I planned this trip soon after our wedding and have been looking forward to it ever since. I, for one, could not wait to get some days off of work and do something different! I was so looking forward to it, however I was not expecting to get a horrible chest cold and plugged up head four days before we left. When I caught it, Ben caught it, and we both woke up early on Friday morning to head to the airport with our horrible coughs and stuffed up noses.
We put aside our sickness as best we could to get in a good mood for our host. Michelle picked us up from the airport and we headed out to see the Portland sights right away. First, we hit up the waterfalls. We went up some back, windy roads up to see some different sights. After, we headed back into Portland and stayed downtown, ate and saw the city...and a lot of bums. Portland is a very eventful place.
Since we live here in SLC and are around Mts everyday, we wanted to see the beach. We left on Saturday and stopped at a winery on the way out. We sampled some amazing wine and saw a beautiful place. We then kept on and went through some of the cutest towns on the way to the beach. We stopped at a little brewery in Cannon Beach and then headed back.
Before we could leave, Ben just had to see Nike Town, so we went back to downtown Portland and Ben and I did some shopping. We loved the downtown, it was small and easy to walk around with the cutest little shops to go into. We ate a late lunch and then back to SLC.
It was a quick trip, but Michelle was a great host and we got to see so so much! We also were very lucky. The weather report said 90% chance of rain each day and the sun came out everyday we were there. We are also still working to get over our colds, but managed to take care of ourselves while we were there and were able to see and do everything we planned.

The Goonie Rock, it was really windy at the beach!

Wonderful Wednesdays

For some reason I am always happier on Wednesdays. I think it is because it is the middle of the week, only two more days of the work week left, only one more day of dress clothes (jeans Friday is my fav!) and The Ruins is on tonight. The Ruins is a show on MTV that Ben and I love to watch!
The weather has changed again, it's a little more fall like right now. At least no more snow. I was checking out a snowboarding Web site and some resorts are opening on Friday. It's crazy, not even Halloween yet. I check the weather every morning, it looks like it will be in the 50s this week and next back up in the 60s. Very nice, I just bought a new dress for work and wanted to wear it before the winter! Looks like I will be able to next week!
Ben and I are going to a friend's birthday party this weekend. We are bowling! We went for work a couple of weeks ago, and let me tell you, they better have a bar at the alley or else we are in trouble;)
I am planning on getting my Halloween costume together this weekend as next weekend Ben and I are heading to Portland to visit my friend Michelle. I am so glad Halloween is on a Saturday, I just need to find a Halloween party to go too.

Welcome Fall

Picture Courtesy of, submitted by Julia Jeffery

Yep, that's snow. This was taken Wednesday morning, September 30. Hello fall! It went from 90 degrees, Monday and Tuesday, to 45 yesterday and today. At least it is not raining or snowing today, in the valley at least. The mountains still have snow on them today. Ben and I were planning to head up to Oktoberfest on Saturday, but I don't think we'll make it! It is supposed to warm up a little bit next week, at least back to normal fall weather.
