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.

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!

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.

I love fall fashion and get so excited when the season comes around. Who doesn’t love putting on a cute sweater and boots to go to a pumpkin patch? I am more than excited for all of the festivities that come with fall!
Recently I have been looking for a few new staple items to add to my closet and came across a few favorites. I have been searching for a coat that is not too heavy and that can be worn with a number of different outfits.When I found this cute, army green coat I fell in love!! Everyone needs a jacket that they can wear throughout the season and this is great one because the sleeves can be rolled up when it’s too hot to wear a full on coat.
I also thought that this grey sweater wrap and pair of black jeans were items that I could wear consistently and pair with a number of outfits. It was time for me to get a few solid versatile items. I thought these jeans were extra cute with the slightly ripped knees.
What girl doesn’t love SHOES? I would wear pointed flats every day if my job allowed it. These flats are super cute, affordable, and have a strap around the ankle to add a little detail and support. I have found a few pairs of pointed flats that are adorable but really pricey. I go through shoes really fast, so I thought these were cute and even if they just lasted for the season, they were definitely worth $28! I also found these cute boots over at Forever 21 and absolutely adored the buckles. I have been obsessed with gold lately so when I saw these I was ecstatic!
My choice accessory is always my shades! I have found a few pairs of glasses over the years that I treasure but they are getting a little old and beat up. It was time to get a new pair and while I was looking, I came across these lovelies! They are a little different but I adore the round cat eye shape. Go out on a limb and try something new– maybe some cat eye sunnies for a change?!
Floppy hats are definitely in right now and are taking over! I wish I had every shade and color of floppy hats. I always find myself wearing my floppy hat when I don’t feel like doing my hair and want to look dressed up! Floppy hats can be worn as a casual accessory or a way to dress up your outfit. I have worn my hat with jeans and a striped shirt but I have also worn it with a dress and heels. I was really nervous to give floppy hats a try, but I am so glad I tested the waters and got one. I am thrilled about this new hat and the pop of color that it adds.
We bring our phones everywhere we go that it’s practically an accessory, so why not dress it up too? I have always been a fan of black and white because it goes with everything! This phone case it so classy and sassy and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Best part is that it is a charging case and you don’t have to worry about your phone dying before the day is over. I have always enjoyed having different phone cases to alternate with but when I get this case I may never take it off!
Thanks for reading… don’t forget to check back for some of my yummy fall recipes and activities!
