My life is an ongoing adventure. I am never in one place for very long and I’m always finding new magical places. I’ve lived in Utah on and off but we have been there a year solid now and I had never been on the ski lift.
If you haven’t been to Sundance … you are missing out. Sundance is such an amazing and breathtaking place. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be living so close to it. One crazy thing about me though is that I have never been skiing!! I live in freaking Utah and I have never been hahah. That’s my goal this winter, to learn to Skii.
What goals do you have for winter?!
My goals are
1. Get in the best shape I can…for a beach vacation in February
2. Learn to Ski
3. Keep up with the gallon water challenge
4. Read a book each month
5. Train for another half marathon
Although my life is partially glamorous …. I miss my husband so much and it’s extremely hard to be gone from him. This job has helped me to appreciate all the little things in life. I get so excited just to eat a meal with him and watch tv. When I was home…it was just a normal thing to do and now I look forward to it. Appreciate the things you would miss, if you didn’t see the people you love as much.

Hello Lovies, Hoping your week was as joyful as mine 🙂 Just wanted to clue you in on some awesome fall deals that I found and give you an update on our next vacation. SO I bought these velvet burgundy jeans at Costco this week and I am IN LOVE. They were only $20 and unbelievably soft!!! I want a pair in every color. Also my booties are only $32 — they are my favorite pair of shoes right now and go with everything.
Fall is coming to an end and I am so sad! I can’t believe snow will be arriving soon…. I loved being able to walk around yesterday and look at all the beautiful trees changing colors and actually enjoy what Fall feels like. Growing up in Florida, the only season you have is summer and semi-summer. I found this neat wall in Provo and HAD to stop and snap some pics.

Lately I have been preparing and researching for my upcoming trip to Cost Rica and could not be more excited. I can’t wait to try all the yummy places to eat, beaches to lay on, and fun adventures to explore. The only thing I am a little worried about is that it is rainy season — well it technically ends mid November, so we are crossing our fingers it will be over by the time we arrive. We will be flying into San Jose, and staying with my second cousin. I am tempted to take a surfing lesson while I am there!! I don’t have the best balance but I think it would be so fun. I am so happy that right as it turns cold here we will be headed to the beach. If any of you have recommendations LET ME KNOW:) ?
Thanks for reading and I’m serious about those jeans … they are amazing!!!

We had the BEST time at Cornbellys last night and wish we could have stayed a few more hours. There are so many exciting and lively things to do there. Its great because in the earlier hours there are a tons of things for kids but as the night goes on it becomes more of a teen/adult environment. At dusk it starts to get a little more spooky and there are plenty of fires (even smores pits around). We brought my friends niece and nephew so we were able to experience a bit of both environments.
We decided to get general admission and pay for smaller things as we went. I would recommended looking into the diiferent options.
You can get tickets Here and enter VALPAK1 for $3 off!!! (cheaper to go on a week day). Age 2 and under are FREE.

Autumn is here, which means Halloween is right around the corner!!! Now that I have started to pack away the summer clothes, I busted out my Fall/Winter clothes today and this Sweater vests will definitely be my go to this season. Also these Rockport boots are the most comfy, stylish, and versatile boots —I would absolutely recommend them.
Some updates on our lives ~
Now that we are back in Utah, I am finally able to enjoy all the seasons and not just summer. I’m dying over these adorable fall decorations and everything pumpkin flavored. Now that I know we are staying here, I have started making a list of all the fun date things I want to do this fall/winter and I’m also making a dream board!! I feel super motivated and want to spread happiness around:)
My husband Michael found a job, so we will be moving a little more South to Provo. We are super thrilled about this new opportunity and can’t wait to get our life back in order. I joined a local gym, started some new workouts (which I will share in an upcoming blog post), and made some new fall recipes. My favorite recipe right now is Taco soup, we had it last night and it was magnificent — Taco Soup. This time has been a little crazy but I am happy that we moved when we did because it will be easier to acclimate before winter is here. If you have any suggestion how a Florida girl can survive through winter please let me know??
Thankfully we have decided to go to Costa Rica for Thanksgiving — I mean who wouldn’t want to be on a beach soaking up some rays while everyone back home is frozen??? I know I would. If you know of any great places to see there, I would love to hear about it?!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back soon!
