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 airbnb.com 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.

Dairy Queen Free Ice Cream!


Do you ever go to free scoop night at Dairy Queen? It's something I can remember doing for a long time now! Tony & I first went to a DQ on Redwood Road. We were about to get in the drive through line when we saw a sign that said no free cones in the drive through. Bummer! We snagged a parking spot instead and stood in line for about 5 minutes to get our cones. 

We decided to go to 1 more DQ location and this time we were able to just go through the drive through to get our free cones and we ordered a meal to share as well. 

I love this tradition! What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

MeKong Cafe




There is a Thai restaurant down the street from us called MeKong Cafe. We have not eaten there for a couple years and decided to go again. We did like it a lot last time we went, so I'm not sure why it took us so long to go back.

Tony got the beef with a side of cucumbers, his favorite! Just kidding.

Texas Roadhouse Favorites

One of our favorite places to eat is Texas Roadhouse and luckily we have one down the street from us. We prefer to go when we have a coupon but they are great about letting us share a meal too. Here's what we got last time we went (with a giftcard I'd gotten Tony for Christmas).

 Frozen strawberry lemonade - so fancy!

A Trip To Idaho

 

My dad emailed my family on Friday letting us know he was going to get a new calling on Sunday in his ward if any of us wanted to come see it all go down. I'm always down for a roadtrip so my sister Laura, her 2 boys and I all headed out Friday afternoon to Boise.  Tony wanted to come but had too much homework and Rocky was still in Peru. So..girls trip! (minus the 2 boy-kids traveling with us).

School is Cool!

 So I am not sure how many of you saw my Facebook post or not about applying to LDS Business College in December to go back to school because believe it or not, school is actually cool when you find a degree you want to get so badly! This is what happened to me, I heard about a degree called Social Media Marketing and decided to apply ( a real college - not a community college! ) and what do you know...

 We missed being able to go last year to the ice castles in Midway and so luckily we were able to use our previous tickets on this years event. Especially because it was only going to be open for a few days since the weather has been so warm.

Vegas Blogger Meetup

My friend and fellow blogger Wendy, who lives in Las Vegas, told me about a blogger meetup going on during CES and she picked me up after I got done at the convention and we headed to a restaurant called Serendipity on the strip.

Consumer Electronics Show Day 3

Headed to CES for the last day! I snapped this as I was driving so it's not the best but you get the idea. This is a long post full of pictures and words so you can scroll and look at pictures or you can read as you go. I just have so much to share from the last day!
