Our new thing? Sitting in the hot tub while its raining or snowing. This means I run from our apartment to the pool as fast as I can, wrapped in my fluffy robe and use my towel as a scarf. I think it's going to be our new before bedtime ritual. This means I still smell like chlorine.

Luckily I found my new favorite body should help.

Our weekend via the iphone

I love the hipstamatic app for iphone, obviously. Here's our long weekend in sunny CA via the iphone.
I have a billion more pics I took with the 5d and I'll upload those eventually.

The reason we went to California? Brian + Moonsung were sealed in the Newport Beach Temple along with their sweet daughter Campbell. The whole family was together and it was wonderful. I also got to throw my parents a 25th anniversary party. The days were busy but we loved it.

Our 'Other' Niece + Nephew

Our three nieces (and one more on the way which we find out the sex of this week) all live in Southern California and we only get to see them every few months. Luckily to tide me over we have some cousin's kids that live in Utah county to love on. It's so fun.

Spring, spring, spring

You're supposed to sing the title of this post like in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. If you know that movie. And if you don't you should probably watch it. It's my favorite.

Things are JUST starting to get warm here (I plan on more snow days of course) so I'm taking in all the sunshine I can. I'm home sick with a cold today but thinking about future warm days and what I want to plan.

I need some easy simple skirts and dresses for warmer weather, like this:

I also can't wait to plan dinner parties with strung lights. So pretty.

I miss California fruit, ESPECIALLY strawberries. but spring and summer fruit are just around the corner. Let's see what you've got, Utah!

Happy Sunday

It's Sunday again, and I love Sundays. We recently started a new tradition with David's 4 cousins where we switch off making dinner every Sunday. It's WONDERFUL. I make dinner and then the next 4 Sundays I don't have to think about it.

On Sundays I also love watching classic movies after The Sound of Music.

Wasn't Julie Andrews lovely?
