I have recently become SO excited about two things...Quilting and Summer. Here are some of my recent quilting blog finds: OhFranson has great tutorials for beginners, Mama Stellato has some cute tutorials on baby blankets and little girl clothes. Cluck Cluck Sew has a TON of quilting tutorials, love this site! Ooo, one more, Dairy of a Quilter has darling quilt ideas and many other fun project ideas, plus lots of links to great sites!


We went to the Tulip Festival last month. However, the tulips were not really out yet. This crazy weather! Later though we went to the Salt Lake Temple and went through a session and the tulips were everywhere! I'm so excited for spring...but more excited about summer!

Cross Country Skiing!

Well, I did something this weekend that I never thought I would do...Cross Country Skiied...probably more like Back Country...12 miles, with a huge pack, and stayed the night in a Yurt. It was crazy, but so much fun! It was for Sarah's Birthday. Levi, Sarah, Clarisa and Mariah went. So glad Clarisa was there (we are both beginners at this). Luckily it was good weather. I'll post pics and tell more later!

Flip and Tumble

I was reading one of my favorite magazines the other day, Body + Soul and found a great website for reusable bags! It's called Flip and Tumble. I am a huge advocate of not using plastic bags. As we all should be aware by now that plastic does not biodegrate and will forever be in our landfields and ocean, therefore, we can do our part by purchasing reusable bags. For more facts and numbers about plastic bags and their damage to our environment go here. These reusable bags are awesome because they fold into themselves and are easy to carry in your car or purse!

Sittin' Around the Campfire

One of our friends had a birthday party up Millcreek Canyon. There was a fire, s'mores and really great people. We love the outdoors!

I'm still here...I promise!

So, I have been the worst at updating my blog. I still haven't bought myself a laptop, so it was a bit challanging finding a computer to work on during the summer (really just an excuse for my lack of updates). I thought for sure I would have tons of time this summer to blog and do art projects and go camping...well, things turned out a little different than I thought but it was still a wonderful summer.

I ended up taking a part time job at Youth City, where I worked full time last summer. It's a summer program for kids. I do love "working" with kids in the summer...if you can call it that! We did have so much fun. From art projects to playing dodgeball to going to waterparks and skating rinks! I guess it was worth it. :)

Also, my darling sister, Julie, was married in July to Andrew Nevin. The wedding was wonderful and she was a beautiful bride. It was so fun much to have all of our family out (including grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousins!) Oh, and seeing the boys (Lincoln and Ari) together was so cute. You have to see her wedding photos. It was simply fabulous and so much fun.

Now, it's back to school. I'm just trying to keep up and enjoy it. I've also been dating a wonderful guy, Levi Fifield. He has been so good to me and we have had so much fun together. I'm sure I will post some pictures soon.
