City Creek Center

Preston and I went to the new City Creek shopping center in downtown Salt Lake today. It was amazing. They have so many good stores and a beautiful stream running through the whole thing. I took a lot of pictures so instead of telling about it, I'll just let you all see our fun day shopping!

Prest excited to be there

Beautiful fountain

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So last Saturday I woke up early and remembered it was St. Patrick's Day, so I decided to surprise Preston! I always make something for breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays and he had mentioned he wanted french toast so I decided to make green french toast and milk! And here it is! Doesn't that look yummy??

If you can't tell I'm kinda bored haha.. But I'm so excited for tomorrow and Friday. We get to go see the Hunger Games tomorrow evening in an early showing that Preston's dad's company sponsors, so I'm way excited for that! And then on Friday we're going to the new City Creek Center in Salt Lake to shop and go to Cheesecake Factory! Preston and I have been so dang excited for it to open, it has so many great stores! 

Here's a link to the list of stores:

Exciting News!

No I'm not pregnant. But... We are moving to Arizona for the summer!!! Preston found out a little while ago that he got the internship that he's been wanting in Scottsdale, so we are going down as soon as school gets out. (We'll be back by the middle of July so it's not technically the whole summer.) Since my grandpa and his new wife live in Mesa, we will be staying with them which will save us a lot of money on rent and most likely we will keep our apartment in Provo.

I'm so excited for a change this summer. It'll be a fun adventure to go live down there for a while. I'm going to start looking for a job down there and praying that I can find one! I absolutely love being down there, even though this summer will be a big change with my grandma gone. It's going to be an adjustment, but hopefully it'll be okay.

So we're in for a HOT HOT HOT summer! But we're SO excited!

Saying Goodbye

One of my very best friends, Allie, left on her mission this last week. She's going to Peru where her dad is actually from, so she has some family there she has never met. She'll be in the MTC here for three weeks and then head off to Peru to the MTC and then to start her mission! I'm so excited for her but it was very hard to see her leave. It feels like a year and a half is a lifetime to not see her, but I'm just hoping it will pass quicker than expected. She is going to be an amazing missionary. She's fun, outgoing, personable, loving, and loves the gospel.

Last week was her farewell and the night before we got together with some friends and family for dinner at the Dock of the Bay. The next day she gave an amazing farewell talk, it really hit me that she was leaving at the end of her talk and I could not stop the tears. (Blame it on the birth control.. seriously though I'm a crazy person now!)

Monday night I saw her for the last time at McDonalds. She and her mom had been shopping in Provo, so she called me up when they were done to get some food and say our goodbyes. Somehow seeing her before she left and talking excitedly about Peru made me feel a little better. I'm so excited to hear about her experiences and see her when she gets back. I'm so proud of her for doing this and love her so much!

P.S. I saw these llamas at school the day she went into the MTC.. coincidence? You tell me...
