Midvale Harvest Fest Parade

 Every fall Midvale does a harvest festival and the parade goes right down a road at the end of our street. I had gotten up early that morning to wash and vacuum my car, get some breakfast and then Tony & I walked down the street with our chairs to find a good spot to watch the parade. Tony missed this last year because he was down at BYU studying so I was excited he got to see it this year. He doesn't care for parades much but I love them.
 These are just some pictures of my favorite floats

A small fire truck that could really be driven!

 We see these people in Albuquerque who can carve amazing things out of a stump of wood. So neat!

What is your favorite part about going to a parade?

CVX Live YouTube Convention

 CVX Live to SLC is what VidCon is to Los Angeles. I went to Vidcon (Youtube Conference) for the first 3 years and called it good. It got way too big and fan girl'ish for my liking. It's still an awesome conference I think, it's been a few years since I have gone and some parts of me do miss it. This year was the first time that Utah decided to have a Youtube Convention called CVX Live. It was held Friday and Saturday and I was only able to attend on Saturday but it was really interesting and kind of fun.

When I first arrived I volunteered for a few hours at the LDSBC booth, telling people about our Social Media Marketing degree. When the interest in that died down, I was able to walk around and explore the booths a bit. 


 Watched this girl perform and speak for a bit

 I follow this family on Instagram and Youtube. It was fun to see them again!
 Watching Devin Graham aka DevinSuperTramp speak to us. Always a treat! If you have never seen his videos, be sure to click the link and check them out. So fast paced and exciting!

Then the cast of Studio C! That was fun 

 I got to see and sit with Linda Graham and I am just now noticing the face of the girl behind us. Too funny! I haven't seen Linda for quite a few years so it was fun to catch up a tiny bit and reconnect. Lots going on so we couldn't chat a ton but it was still so awesome to see her in real life again.

 Next, Peter Hollens performed. I am liking his videos so much! Super talented acappella artist. Check out his YouTube channel if you never have.

I had to leave pretty quick to get back to SLC for the hot air balloons happening in Sandy that evening or I would have stayed longer at CVX Live
All in all a super fun time and I can't wait for next year (March 25-26) which will be even bigger and better!

Fire on Foxbridge

 We have our bedroom window open often with the nice weather and one night Tony & I were in bed watching a show and I smelled something burning. He didnt smell anything much but I got concerned and got up to check the office and the laundry room and kitchen. Nothing there.

SLC Lantern Fest

 I know this picture is hard to see but it's where we turned right to head into the open space where the lantern festival was happening. I was so excited because basically the logo for this event is a giant owl! Whooooo!

Sandy Utah - Hot Air Balloons!

 We all know by now that I am a night owl and I hate to wake up in the morning. It is super hard to do. One thing that helps me a bit to get up early is knowing I can see hot air balloons. I love them so much! Every August in Sandy, UT they have a little hot air balloon festival. Friday & Saturday morning and then a balloon glow Saturday evening.

Honey Harvesting

So you may or may not know that Tony & I have 2 hives of bees. One is a top bar hive that we have had for a few year and the other one is white square box hive that we were borrowing from the person we keep our bees in his yard at and we caught that swarm in the summer at the Hale Center Theater in West Valley. Tony decided to get rid of the bees and harvest the honey because we will most likely be moving next year and he didn’t want to deal with the bees on top of moving. He found a husband and wife who wanted the bees and made the transfer and started bringing the honey home to process. I don’t have pictures of everything but here are a few I took.

KSL Preview Night - New Shows For Fall!

This is my third year attending the preview night at KSL Studios in Salt Lake City. It's always a treat to go and I dont know if other TV stations do this, but they should!

 Walked in to find these fancy tables with cute orange boxes (there were gumballs inside) and you could put your name into a drawing to win some awesome prizes later in the evening.

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.

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!
