Millcreek Canyon Potluck

 Thursday evening Tony & I drove up to Millcreek Canyon for his annual work company potluck. It's something I have enjoyed going to the past few years because it's really pretty and his coworkers are interested & fun to talk to.

 See that dent on my hood? That was not there before but it happened on our drive up. I told Tony to slow down because it was 30mph, not 40 and shortly after that, a deer jumped up from the right side of the road and tumbled across my hood. Landed on the ground for a few moments after we slammed on the brakes and then quickly ran across the other lane and up the mountain. Internal injuries? Probably so. I jumped out of the car as soon as Tony pulled over and saw the damage to my hood. So glad it wasnt worse though! Just gotta figure out how to get the dent out now.

Tons of good food! Tony picked up some 7 layer bean dip and tortilla chips and it was gone pretty fast once it was opened. It is one of my favorite things to eat!

 Got a hamburger, some ymmy salads and fresh peaches with whipped cream! I still am not sure about the big deal with Utah peaches, they are really good but I have had really good peaches in other states too.

Great weather, fun people to hang out with for awhile & it was nice to spend time with Tony!

Portland Oregon Day 1

I know I have other things to blog about but I wanted to blog about this trip while the details are still fresh in my head. Tony dropped me off at the airport about around 630. My flight was supposed to leave at 8.  I have not flown in 5 years so I was a little nervous about remembering to do everything correctly. Lucky for me, everything went perfectly and I boarded my flight, bought some wifi and the hour and a half passed pretty quickly.

Cockatiels At the Vet

Poor Oreo. I took her to the vet on the 4th of July because she had not been herself the last few days and I noticed she was dragging one of her wings. She must have hurt it in the cage somehow but I am not sure how she did that. It made me and Tony feel so so sad to see her miserable. Sleeping a lot. Not moving around much or eating. I'm glad we decided to take her in to the vet, even though it was on a holiday!

Neon Trees Concert at UVU

In June, my friend asked if I might want tickets to see the Neon Trees in concert because she was unable to go. I felt so sad for her about that but was happy to be able to go with Tony to enjoy the show. Here are a bunch of pictures from that evening and the cool things we did afterwards!

Mystery Escape Room - SLC Review

Team Flying Hellfish flew out of our Houdini's Challenge today! Congratulations on your time of 52:28!  Posted by Mystery Escape Room on Saturday, June 13, 2015

A couple weeks ago I was able to go with my friend Emily & a bunch of her friends to the Mystery Escape room at the Gateway Mall in downtown SLC.  I first heard about this place from listening to radio show, The Nightside Project, because they broadcasted live here at least once, probably twice.

Springville Balloon Fest

Last Saturday was so very busy but that's how I love my weekend to be usually. We drove down to Springville and 'camped' for the night so we wouldn't have to make the hour drive early the next morning. We signed up to volunteer at the Springville Balloon Fest which was an interesting experience.

Roll Up Cafe Review

Ohh my goodness. 

I have not been to Roll Up for a few years. The last time Tony & I went, I loved the huge owl outside but was not super excited about the food or the prices. I heard from a fellow blogger recently that I should go again so last Saturday since Tony and I were in the area, we stopped by to get some dinner. I love love crepes and I just loved what I ordered!

Waterworld Show at Universal Studios

Playing catch from our trip to CA for our anniversary weekend. This show was so much fun and worth going to! I am just going to post a bunch of pictures because I took some good ones that I want to share here. The show was fast paced and action packed. I didnt dare look away in case I missed some of the storyline. 

 Lots of fire and explosions ��

Some of the cast! Many have been on TV shows such as Bones, Revolution, CSI , Law & Order or are athletes - gymanastics.  So crazy cool!

Capturing A Swarm Of Bees

Huge thanks to my friends at Utah Sweet Savings that posted there was a swarm of bees in a tree at the Hale Center Theater about a month ago. To be honest, we've never caught a swarm before but have always wanted to, I guess? Bees are expensive and to catch a swarm, that's like hitting the jackpot! We hurried and got a few things together and almost didnt go because there were other people who wanted the bees but I said, lets just go and if someone beats us, we can watch them capture the bees.

The Cokeville Miracle

I happened to snag a couple tickets to a screening of a new movie coming out June 5th called, The Cokeville Miracle. Thank you to John Dye who let me know via Facebook that there was a screening at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi and extra tickets were available. Yahoo! I've been seeing the billboard for this movie and hearing little bits about it for awhile and so I was super stoked to go check it out and let you guys know what I think!

Airbnb House Review

Tony used to find the perfect place for us to stay. However, the day before we were supposed to arrive in L.A. the guy changed his ad to say we had to stay a full week instead of a minimum of 2 nights, and then he also upped the price a bunch too! That left us (Tony) scrambling to find something else last minute.  So much for a hot tub on the roof :-/ but we managed to find another place that worked for the weekend, even though it didnt have a hot tub.

Joe's Falafel - Los Angeles, CA

 We needed some lunch before heading in to Universal Studios. We were trying to find a mexican restaurant but it looked closed when we arrived. However, Joe's Falafel was right next door so we went there instead. I was not super hungry but we started by sharing some Falafel and it was pretty yummy! I love eating food that comes on a stick.

Anniversary Weekend: Universal Studios

Every single time I am in southern CA , I want to go to Disneyland. We did that together in 2012 so this time we decided to do something we had never done. We picked to go to Universal Studios to celebrate our 4 year wedding anniversary! It was a last minute change of plans because we were going to go to Gem Mountain in Montana but it was bad weather, so we opted for a trip to California instead. So nice because we both took Friday off of work to have an extra day for travel, etc.

Adventure Gear Expo

Tony got us tickets for the Adventure Gear Expo which was a couple Saturdays ago and I was so so excited to go! We have never gone to this expo before so it was going to be fresh and new.

Food Truck Food Review!

My food was from La Table Crepes.  I have seen and heard of them before but had never gotten to try their food. I LOVE crepes so Saturday evening in Provo was the perfect time to try them.

Smokey Windows Usually Mean There Is Fire

Saturday evening I was trying to find a few more cube cloth boxes that were on sale, 60% off! at Michaels. We checked at a store in Provo with no luck. Headed over to the one in Draper and I found 5! I put my bag in the car and got into the passenger seat. As I turned my head to buckle my seat belt, I noticed the car next to had flames on the passenger side! I said, "Tony! That car is on fire, move away from it!" and he said, "Call 9-1-1!" I only had 14% battery left on my phone but luckily it lasted for the whole call.

It's All About The Bees

Guess what time of year it is??!! Time to purchase a package of bees and try our hand at beekeeping again.  Last year was a huge fail, in case you dont remember...we bought a package of bees and they all flew away in less than 48 hours. Tried again with round 2 and the bees stayed about 72 hours and built a tiny honeycomb. Bees can be so frustrating!

Freetown Movie Screening

So...this blog post was supposed to be out a few weeks ago because this movie, Freetown, came out April 8. I got to see it a bit early thanks to LDSBC. It was a Friday night and I was still recovering from being super sick but all that was left was a cold so I figured I would be okay. I am so glad we were able to go!

The Habit

 Tony and I went to Rita's for a free Italian ice last Friday but the line was long and moving very slowly. Normally I dont care but we had a movie to get to downtown so we decided to step out of line (that was painful) and we walked over to a restaurant called The Habit to get something to eat for dinner.

Pie Day Pi Day

This is another tradition that I have had for as long as I can remember. As a kid we celebrated on March 4th but now that I know about the real date of Pie day, it's been the 14th. Last year we hung out with our cool neighbors Alex and Amberly, ate pie we made/bought , watched a math movie and ate pizza from The Pie.
