Birthdays and Park City

So now to this weekend...on Friday night my friend Alexandra turned 21! I just had to give a shout out to her, we have been friends since Achievement Day years, which would be about 10 years! I have had so much fun with her over the years, I always know I am gonna have a good time when I am with her! For example, her birthday dinner was at Chuck-a-Rama only Alexandra could pull that one off and get all her friends to come join!

Here's the home town gang + Lisa's huband, Matt. They are such newlyweds I love it! (of course this is coming from me the pro-married for 1.5+ years jk)
Now on to Saturday, Chad and I just wanted to spend the day together, once again forget about work and school and act like we have no real responsibility for the day. We decided to go to Park City since the weather was going to be nice enough for flip-flops. We shopped ALL day long! We went through all of the outlets, walked the whole Main Street, ate at our favorite restaurant up there called Bandits, and then we even stopped at the mall on our way home. But guess what? I didn't buy one thing, I thought about getting this hat in the picture but ended up talking myself out of it, as usual. It was good to be outside, get some exercise and enjoy being together.
This is the best b-b-q ever! I'm not a huge bbq fan but when we go to Park City we always make sure that we stop in here!

Back to the old stomping grounds!

So it has been a while since I have updated the blog, but I have some extra time today to catch up on what we have been up to lately. I figured I'm gonna make a different post for each thing we have done its easier to upload pictures a few at a time. So two weeks ago we went back to Rexburg! We were only there for a few hours but that is all you need in Rexburg. This is a picture of the two of us maybe 2 months after we had been dating!

We walked around the gym where Chad used to get ready for football games, here is Chad stading with the Viking!
We then were able to meet up with one of my old and favorite roommates Dani! She is now married so it was good to meet her husband and see their place. I cannot believe how much has changed since we were actually going to school in Rexburg. The town is pretty much the same but campus is like a full fledged construction site. The other thing that hasn't changed is the weather. It is FREEZING there. I don't think I could ever go back, way too cold!

This is me and Dani at the end of our freshman year of college-April 2006
We went and saw the Rexburg temple and it is so pretty! When we were up there they had just put the Angel of Moroni on top, and now its been up and running! It was good to be back in Rexburg, its fun to go back and see how life still goes on even though we aren't there.

Weekend in St. George

We love to go on weekend trips to get away from work and school and just spend some time together. Even though I had four midterms to take Chad was able to convince me to put that aside and take off to St. George. Its so hard to say no to fun, I think about what am I going to remember more, studying for an exam or hanging out with my husband? Hanging out with Chad is always more memorable. So we packed up, got Chad a RedBull to give him wings to drive make the drive. We stay at his grandma's house there, unfortunately she wasn't there this weekend, so we ended up having the house to ourselves.
Of course In-N-Out was on the agenda (twice actually), it makes us feel like we are kind of in California. I felt like such a tourist though taking pictures at In-N-Out, hahah!

When we go down to St. George one of our favorite things to do is look at all the new homes. We went up to this area called Entrada, its a exclusive gated community that is literally built through the lava rock. The homes all blend into the surroundings it is so beautiful. I love the style of homes that are in St. George, I could see myself living there if we had to stay in Utah.

Overall we had a great weekend, it was a lot of fun to have Chad all to myself. He has been so busy with work lately it makes it nice to get out of our routine and forget about work and school for a few days.

Rascal Flatts Concert

Rascal Flatts came to Salt Lake City!!!! I was so excited because my sister Alyssa had never been to a concert before and I thought Rascal would be the perfect first concert they are so amazing! So we bought the cheapest tickets we could find, we didn't care where we sat we were going for the experience. So we get to the Energy Solutions arena and one of the country radio stations KBULL had a booth there and we heard they were upgrading tickets. We debated on standing out in the cold for this chance but Alyssa told me she is super lucky and always wins. So we made our way to the front of the crowd and Alyssa was screaming SSSOOO loud. Finally one of the guys got on the microphone and said can somebody please look at this girls tickets, she is scaring EVERYBODY! They looked at our tickets and realized they were horrible so they exchanged our for the 16th row! We were so excited, and I realized Alyssa really is lucky! SO here we are with our awesome tickets!

Alyssa didn't win this shirt, one of the guys that worked for the radio station dropped it on the ground and she picked it up and put it in her purse, once again though she got lucky!

This is my favorite Ice Cream and I can only find it at the Energy Solutions Arena, I was so excited for it!

Here's the band! They were amazing performers, and hilarious between songs! I never get tired of seeing them in concert! Jessica Simpson opened forthem so that was fun to see her too!

This is infront of the tour bus, too bad it turned out so dark!
