September Wrap Up

SIlent Dance Party at the Linq with Bobby and Chase. I heart these two. 

Triple date (Lyndsay was not my date, haha) to the High Roller at the Linq. My fist time on Las Vegas' newest addition to our skyline. It was cool, and fun. But once was enough :)

Chvrches on a Sunday evening. The next best place to be after Chvrch.

Had a minor surgery. Ingrown turned deadly. no seriously. I thought I was going to die. It hurt so bad it was unreal. Luckily our neighbor is a foot doc and saved my life before work. Alleluia. 

Morning commute across town with my cute little bubba stinks.

Girls dinners in place of FHE. Totally worth it. 

Family fun dates with our other halves.  These two are two peas in a pod. 

Secret presents from my secret admirer.

California, Baby

Sometimes you just need a weekend away with your best friends. For the longest time Leah and I hated each other. And that might just be an understatement. And unfortunately, our mutual best friend was often put in the middle. Not anymore! The three of us finally got to spend some quality time together, as friends. Best friends, really. And then I moseyed on down to Orange County to spend some much needed time with my Margo and Stephanie. Why do all the people I love the most live in freaking California!?!

As mentioned here, I made back to back trips to Utah to see my grandfather and again two weeks later to attend his funeral. The weekend of my grandfather's funeral I also got to see a few of my friends so that was fun! My friend Eric coordinated a ride and also let me borrow his car while I was there so I didn't have to drive up there alone. Then I rode back with my parents. Super sweet of him. So I got picked up at my doorstep by Miss Tatum. We spent the whole drive talking about anything and everything and it sure made the trip go quick! She's a doll. The first night in Utah I stayed with Jane in SLC. The next night I stayed with Anne in Provo and then a night with Brynn in Sugarhouse. I got around. haha. But in all honesty these are some of my three most favorite friends...

Jane: My dear Jane. I met her right after I got divorced but our friendship didn't really blossom until right before she left on her mission in 2012. She was going through a really hard time and needed a good friend. Luckily, I was able to be that friend. We wrote her whole mission and I even got to surprise visit her on her mission in NYC. When she got home, we spent most days together. Just her and I until she departed to Utah. I'm so glad we got to spend a whole day and night just her and I. We haven't been able to do that in a long time. Jane has such a good heart and really just tries so hard to be the best person she can be all the time. I admire her for that. I also snuggled her new dog Teddy and he came every where with us that day. Matix was in heaven and I became my own worst enemy :)

Anne: Anne was married to Devin's best friend when we were dating. We spent a ton of time with her and her husband going on trips and doing all sorts of fun things ALL the time. We got really close. And then right when my world fell apart. Hers did too. We both became single within about a month of each other. Luckily, even though our relationships ended--our friendship sure didn't. It bloomed. Anne is probably one of my favorite people in the world. She is genuinely always happy, always thoughtful and always down to have a blast. Plus she adores Matix more than anyone. They live in this whole fantasy world when they get together. We spent the night hanging out with friends, playing games and I passed out downstairs in front of everyone. The next day I went to my cousin Angela's baby shower, then the fineral and met back up with Anne and Lauren (another fave) in SLC to go to the fair. I'm glad I have young friends to go on all the spinny pukey rides with Matix. We had a blast!
Brynn: I have a million things to say about Brynn but I've said a lot of them before here. She is literally the nicest, funniest girl in my life and I feel so lucky to have her as one of my bests. After the fair I took off to her house and felt so happy that some of our old school Vegas crew met me there so we could catch up and reminisce while Matix slept. We even snuck out way past our bedtime and got some Denny's. It was so just like the old days. And perfect. Thanks Nate, Maren and Josh for the memories. And I'm pissed we didnt take a picture so here's some old treasures. 
These people rock my world. And as sad as it makes me that they live so far away. I'm grateful that our friendships just keep growing and and I get chances to spend quality time with each and every one of them. I really have been so blessed in the friend department. 

This trip was a perfect trip for the books.

The Westin--Again!

Anjali got jealous of my super fun weekend at The Westin, so she decided to book a room a couple weekends later. We couldn't pass up a second chance of fun. We invited a few of our other friends with kids and had a P A R T Y. Too bad I didn't get a picture of my friend Ellise and her son Drew. They stopped by too. Plus some of Anjali's friends also stopped by with their kids. And the guy on the end is Trevon. He's a fellow single parent and part of our newly created single parent crew. #singleparentsunite

The kids found a frog--of course they did. haha. 

It's so fun to have kid friendly fun! And us adults didnt have too bad of a time either :)
