(picture on the top right, from right to left)
Bonnie Palmer, Alysia Thomas,

Bobbie Jean Shupe and Tami Ginocchio.
It was so fun thanks for doing this.
lets keep it up! Love you gals..

We had our girl reunion October 21st. There were so many girls that didn't get to come.. Im sorry you missed out.. Cause we sure missed you! Cassie, Amy, Jessie, Amber, Amiee, Just to name a few. Well just a heads up. We are planning a 4-wheeler camping trip in Moab this spring. I am going to make sure it happens! So girls keep that in Mind and try to plan on it we want you there...
In October we got to go out to a ranch that Bonnie and Benton run. It is always so great. Not to mention They are so great to let us do it there. Benton is so good, he lets us sleep in till, well lets just say late. But then again we didn't get to sleep until, was it 4am? Anyway.. we wake up to Benton making us food... Bonnie got herself a good man! After we got our Brunch done we went horse back riding over the most amazing trail. The one scenic picture is the view we had on our trail ride. Alysia, im sure, remembers all the horses names.. Not me sorry.. After we get back and unload from our horses and Bonnie losing her shirt on the sattle horn. ha ha.. we head back to go shoot some guns. Again Benton was nice enough to regulate that situation.. ha ha. Aren't we a group of cow girls.. ha ha.. We had such an amazing time. Thanks again Palmers.. I hope we can keep this tradition going.

Fall in Logan.....

These pictures where taken by my phone so the quality is not that great at all. Every saturday I try to go on a hike some where up Logan canyon. Ok so I haven't missed a Saturday sense I moved to Logan. Oh except the one when it was raining. Anyway, the colors are so amazing. This past weekend was so beautiful. I could get lost in those woods for hours. But I tell my roommates to send a search party if I'm not back by a certain time. So I can't really be gone all day, just most of it. I love to go hiking alone it's my chance to pray and think. Kind of my destresser. Some tell me that is not the smartest thing. Hate to tell ya I probably wont stop going alone. I know you are only worried cause you love me (thanks Mom and Alysia) Sorry I am stuburn but I can't give this beauty up!!! Anyway... I wanted to share a little taste of what I get to experience when I go on my hikes.. Wish I could share this with you in person cause the colors are so much more rich and amazing in person. Or with a better Camera...
I love the fall. So Long to September... Hello October...
Oh and Happy 28th Birthday Alysia Thomas and Chad Cannon Love you guys....

The picture below is just one great view I have found in cache valley. Trust me that is not even close to the best view. This valley is so beautiful every where you look. I hope I can get a few more of the valley here so you all can see why I chose Logan to live. I am telling you it is so beautiful.

Well there are a few pictures for ya.. I am loving it here so far. I miss the people I left behind. But this has been a great move so far. I can tell how much happier in life I am already. Keep an eye out for more to come.

MOVING TO LOGAN (bye St George)

It has been awhile sense I have written a new post. I guess it's been a bit of a busy summer. A lot has happened. However I have very little time to write even now. I am moving tomorrow to Logan Utah. I am sad and excited all at once. I am sad to be leaving all my amazing friends here. Also all my co-workers. I know that may sound silly but I will miss the place I used to work. Well today is my last day. I think I have gotten teary eyed once or twice already today. I am truly going to miss everyone. I am just excited to see how my life will change. So I'm sad, nervious and excited all at once.. I will be posting some pictures of my new place very soon so keep an eye out for those pictures.

Beautiful Zion....

Saturday the 14Th my roommate Meredith and I decided that we would go hiking up at Zion. mind you it was 103 degrees on Saturday. so you could say we where warm. It is a beautiful hike. That would have been my third time on that hike. I still love it. I love any hike that is mostly shaded. Now that's the way to go. If you notice in the pictures my face is red. That is what happens when I get heated up. I even had a guy tell me I needed to start wearing sunscreen. uh.. thanks dude! I'm not burnt. it's 103 outside and I'm hiking up a hill give me a break! Also, on the way down I eat it hard. I was laughing so hard at my stupid self. Mean while this poor little old woman was all worried about me. To say the least it was comical. We are always up for a good adventure outside. Keep a look out for more summer fun....

My first time at a Zoo, EVER... Yipee

On wednesday my roommate and I went to the Holgo Zoo in Salt Lake. We where supposed to meet my sister and her family up there but they dogged us. I guess they thought it was raining to bad. However the whole time we where there it wasn't raining. So I guess they missed out on a great zoo trip. Anyway here are a few pictures of just some of the animals we saw that day.

Thanks to Sara I was Tagged...

How to play the blogisphere's game of tag: Post the rules on your blog. List 3 joys, 3 fears, 3 goals, 3 current obsessions/collections, 3 random surprising facts about yourself. Tag 5 people at the end of your post by leaving their names. Let them know they've been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

3 Joys: Mountain Dew (which I have given up many times. It's a love hate thing) Beautiful spring outside wether, Family and friends, of course.
3 Fears: Failed marriage (could be why I'm still single) becoming extremely obese, and snakes. they freak me out when they are in a cage. The ones in nature don't bug me as much. weird I know but in nature they are happy and home. I don't bother them, they don't bother me sort of a thing. but when they're in a cage who knows how pisssssed they are... lol
3 Goals: Long term; to stay healthy. to get an interior design degree. Short term; become spiritually in tune...
3 Obsessions/collections: checking my email. It's almost a habit. Mountain Dew, off and back on. I just can't want to give it up. uuugg.. and uhhh... I love music. I always have to have it on.

3 Random surprising facts about myself: I played basketball with Woody Harrelson. (he is a nice guy) my favorite sport to play is Volley Ball ( is that Random?) UMM... I'm not very random or surprising.. but here is a little something funny. There has never been a guy that I kissed that ever wanted to end things with me. I am always the one who ends things. Once you Kiss the beegster you just don't want anything else. haha.. I really don't think that's it. However it is a true fact. but I have been dumped or turned down by boys. Just not by ones I kissed. So there you go...

I got news yesterday that my dear sweet grandma Ella Shupe passed away. It is a biter sweet time. She had Alzheimer's and lived her last few years in a nursing home. Which was no life. So as you can imagine we are happy to see her in a better place. However, thinking of the years we lost to her disease is making me feel a little gypped. She has missed so much of our lives and we have missed so much of hers. Anyway.. here are some things I remember about my grandma CB...
the smell of her pink soap, Bath time at her house, patty cake, her songs, how she loved birds and flowers, her wrinkly old hands how soft they where, her sugar cookies, her long black hair that she would roll in a bun, her lunches she would make for me. She bought some romaine noodle soup and didn't know how to make it so she made her own little noodle soup out of there already packaged soup. It was good too. I remember she liked to read the readers digest, hunting arrow heads, soft hugs, and many, many other things that I will not list here. But I just want to say that I love you grandma.. I will miss you until we can meet again.

weekend in Moab

This past weekend I got to take my roommate Meredeth to Moab for the car show. We had a great time. We hiked up to the delicate arch. Went to the car show (of course). We hiked up to a beautiful water fall called left hand. Then we went to one of my dads mines and rode the four wheeler all over. We had such a great time. It was so good to get away. Here are just some of the photos I took. However I forgot the camra on a lot of our adventures. But here is a little taste..

That is me under the delicate arch

This is my brother and roommate inside of one of my dad's mines

Me, a marathon runner...., WHAT?

Everyone invovled with the biggest loser contest was asked to run in the Marathon for kids. So that meant me. That's right ya'll I ran in a marathon. No one was there to take a real picture of me. I had to get some proof some how. So this picture is from my phone at a weird angle. So here is my proof. I ran the 5K which really is no big deal to anyone else. However, I was very proud of myself. I only have two more weeks reamining in this biggest loser contest. So I really have to work hard for the nest two weeks... I will let you know how it goes later..

If any of you know anything about me you know that this is a long time dream come true. I have been wanting a new SUV sense before I was 16 years old. I have to say I am posting this just to let you know that dreams do come true. If you are willing to pay for um.. hahaha...

So for the next six weeks no tempting me... I need all the support I can get. I want to lose the most out of everyone in my group on a weekly bases.. GOOOO... ME!!
