more hiking more travel more work!
and a bigger electricity bill thanks to the necessity of an a/c unit on nearly 24/7.
we started off the month with a trip to santa barbara for the 4th of july. we spent time with family at the beach, took the boat out on the high seas, hiked around, ate great food, and relished in the 70 degree temperatures.
like… can we move here?
when we got back, my off work days were spend hiking with my parents, friends, tyler… some conglomeration. anyone i can drag to the mountains with me, i will. like… are you sick of all these mountain vistas yet? this particular one was sunset peak near alta. and let me tell you… banana bread on a summit is hard to beat! so are the wildflowers.
food wise, i just have to brag about the PEPPER i grew. yes, one, singular. hoping for more. also we eat so much fake mexican food i’ve made up, it’s a good thing we like random conglomerations of beans, eggs, corn, avocado, and plantains. oh, and here’s a shoutout to kodiak cake mix and our waffle iron. best wedding money purchase!!!
another hike! this time to red pine lake. it was a toughie!
here’s some pics of us being zen and sweaty doing yoga at the capitol. please notice tyler’s immaculate form… and headband.
most weekends are spent trying to escape the heat. one sunday we went up to brighton and saw a couple moose! i live for those 60 degree summer night temps!
and kourtni’s bridal shower! she gets married in a couple weeks, and it was fun to see all her byu friends in one place. living in utah definitely has its perks AKA all the parties generally come to YOU.
and here’s a blurry pic of the one thing i was looking forward to all summer! portugal. the man in concert at red butte garden. it was good, but i was hoping it would be a sitting concert, and it wasn’t. i thought i could count on the people with the tommy bahama lounge chairs sitting in front of us to stay seated the whole time, but no such luck. does this make me old? that i want to sit at a concert?? probably.
sheesh guys, i am all caught up! can you believe it? hope you enjoyed these blurry selfies! thanks for your time! catch ya later!
