We love to Cruise

We booked a last minute cruise to Ensenada with some of our friends from Utah for this past week, it was only $99 dollars! How could we pass that up?? I had never been on a cruise and luckily didn't get sick at all. We had a blast, it was so fun to do a trip with our friends Jamie and Leo, we called this their "babymoon" since she is 18 weeks pregnant! They invited another couple who ended up getting engaged on the cruise! The weather couldn't have been more perfect, 80 degrees and sunny, which meant we were able to lay out which I love to do.

My favorite things about the cruise were:
1. Minature golf and volleyball on the top of the cruise ship and volleyball.
2. Ordering 2-3 entrees each night at dinner
3. Shopping for fake designer stuff on the streets
4. 24 hr ice cream
5. Having the boat rock me to sleep at night (this is Chads)

Last Weeks Outings

Last week we went to the first Dodger playoff game with some friends. I'm normally not a big baseball fan but I do like going to baseball games, get a dodger dog, nachos, and cotton candy! It was really fun and the Dodgers won, go LA!

We also went to the LA Temple (my camera died so no pics) which was great, that was where I went for my first time and I haven't been back to LA since. So it definately brought back good memories! After the temple we went to Westwood for CPK and stopped at Diddy Reise which has the BEST cookies!

On Saturday we went for a drive to Palos Verdes to check out Terrenea, a new resort up on the cliffs. It was SO beautiful up there, the weather was perfect, the landscaping and view are amazing, and there was a wedding set up that looked so pretty. I would love to work for a resort like that and be an event planner.

Randomly there was a lady up there with this beautiful owl, it had the orangest (if thats a word) eyes I had ever seen, very Halloweeney!

I think this pic of Chad and the owl is funny, it looks like the owl just posed with him like they were real friends.

I didn't know I married a mountain man!

Last weekend we headed to Mesa, Colorado with Chad's parents to visit his Aunt Brenda, Uncle Dave and two cousins Jeff and Gina. I was told they lived way in the mountains but I didn't realize how FAR out there they really lived. We flew into Grand Junction and from there made a 45 minute drive up the side of a mountain, then a 2 1/2 mile drive on a dirt road to their home. It was so GORGEOUS! I was thinking how I love much I love California because of the weather and the beach but besides that its filled with a bunch of freeways, cars and homes. Colorado was so different because it was beautiful trees, lakes, mountains and SPACE. Don't get me wrong I do love being in California but it was a nice change. The leaves were all changing which made the mountains looks so colorful, like a bowl of frootloops!

Chad was in heaven up there, he loved going hunting twice a day and fishing in between the hunting sessions. He had a great time with his uncle who it a real true moutain man. Chad wore camo gear the whole weekend it was really funny! I went fishing with him out on the lake and caught my first fish, pretty exciting!

Unfortunately the last day we were there Chad was shooting some powerful rifle and the scope kicked back and cut his forehead open! When I went outside and saw blood everywhere I was pretty nervouse, luckily his aunt is a nurse and cleaned him up. We ended up needing to go to the Emergency Room to get his forehead superglued back together. It was a bummer to have this happen but it could have been much worse. Overall a great trip, I hope that we can go back again.

Fair Food

If its not friend, it doesn't belong at the fair. Thats what I figured out when we went to the LA county fair last Wednesday. So many friend foods to choose from: deep fried zuccinni wennie, deep fried crispy creme chicken sandwhich (yes Im serious), deep fried oreos, deep fried sliders, deep fried twinkies, or deep fried snickers. These are just some of the choices. For dessert we got a deep fried s'more. It was pretty unhealthy I am sure but we had to do it.
