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.

These past few days have been absolutely crazy, fun, and exciting! I was able to throw my best friends shower here in Utah with a few other friends. It turned out so beautiful and was perfect for her. I will be sharing the blog post later this week on her shower and some fun DIY project I did for it. I was also able to go to Cornbellies again with our group of close friends and we had an absolute blast. Then yesterday I was able to go to park city and spend some time with my best friend and her hubby before they headed back to Florida. I cant believe that the next time I see her she will have a baby!!! Super exciting 🙂
Hi Rise Flare Jeans
Lace cut out bell sleeve C/O Amethyst and Opal
Wedge Sandal Old but similar
Lipsense — Bella in Matte C/O Calli (I am obsessed with this stuff — it literally lasts all day)
You can order lipsense through the link above. I have never had lipstick that last so long and doesn’t need reapplying. I put it on at 10 am and it literally lasted until about 10-11 at night and all I did was reapply gloss 1 time after I ate. There are so many beautiful colors and it has helped to moisture my lips so much! SO grateful my friend Calli introduced me to it.
Now to talk about this rocking outfit!! First things first let me tell you that each piece of this outfit is under $40!!! I am absolutely in love with Bell sleeves right now especially ones with lace and detail. This blouse has become one of my fall statement pieces and goes with everything. I love that you can dress is up or down. You can shop more of Amethyst and Opals ADORABLE clothes HERE. They have so many cute and affordable options!
Flare jeans —- The 90’s baby in me is coming out. I am so happy that these jeans are coming back in. These are my favorite pair and I found them at the Nordstrom rack sale this year. Luckily right now I found a similar pair for under $35 dollars. They are the most flattering and comfortable jeans I own.
I just purchased this dress at the nearest Nordstrom rack — they still had a whole rack in various colors. Be sure to check yours out today!!!

Happy Saturday! So I did a big thing while I was here… I chopped off my hair and I am loving it!!!! It has been so exciting and eventful visiting my friends and family these past few weeks in Florida. I was so happy to have a little sunshine yesterday since the rest of my trip will be filled with thunderstorms. While visiting I have been able to see amazing white sandy beaches, visit Orlando, try new delicious restaurants, and go to the Nordstrom Rack sale with my Mom and friend Caitlyn. I scored this flattering and elegant dress for $50!! I surprisingly do not own a black dress so I was thrilled to find one that I loved and felt beautiful in.
I have a few days left here in FL, and I am going to try to make the most of it. If any of you have suggestions for rainy day activities I would love to hear them!! It’s always heartwarming to come home and spend quality time with the ones I love.
