i’m behind. ooooooops
september was really great! i took a couple weeks off work and headed back east to see friends, go to a wedding, and see adele in concert. tyler came with me for a minute so i could indoctrinate him on the greatness that is washington, dc.
in the early part of the month, my family showed up on one weekend. they tend to do that. this is the good thing about living close by… lots of surprise visits. we hiked up to donut falls with just about every other breathing individual in salt lake city? anyway, lots of photos happened, obviously.
then we went to washington, dc! it was so good to be back and see my favorite people. we went to my friend from nursing school’s wedding in maryland, ate at all my favorite restaurants, rode bikes around the national mall, kayaked around the potomac, and took a little trip up to philadelphia to get a cheesesteak and see the magic gardens. it was a great trip
after dc tyler went home and i went to florida to visit diana in her paradise wonderland home of miami. we spent lots of time on yelp finding good things to eat, went to south beach and used a ton of bug spray because ZIKA, paddle boarded, played kickball and karaoked, AND i was in bed every night by 10 pm. it was so great.
last but not least i flew up to new york city to meet with a couple friends to see adele. new york in the fall will always be one of my top favorite things- perfect weather coupled with good company, great things to eat, and a hustle atmosphere. i am very into it. adele was so, so so so so good. she is an angel. plus i got to sit a lot during the concert. i might be old, but i think sitting at concerts is my love language.
and then i came home to utah and got engaged…. so yes, i will chalk up september as being a pretty great month. pics below. not for the faint of heart! there’s a lot of em! godspeed!
both my sisters in the same place! happy about that
i accidentally bought this shirt at crossfit without realizing it is very teaparty republican.. as pointed out by tyler. oops.
