One year ago today....

I received this pretty little thing

From this wonderfully handsome man

At this gorgeously perfect lake

Hooray for marriage and love and engagements and pretty rings at pretty places from wonderful people. I love you Mark!

Under construction

All this home remodeling this summer has put us in the mood to "remodel" our little apartment....well me... it has put me in that mood. These couch pillows were our first step, because they were the easiest. Our futon no longer looks a little drab....hooray.

We have a lot of next steps. We cannot technically remodel our apartment, because it is not ours, but we can build more things to make it look awesome. Here are couple models of things we will build. Not only is Mark skilled at building, but he is skilled at modeling and building that same modeling.

This bench will sit at the end of our bed

This will be our new headboard.

We will also be building a new coffee table and some frames and a couple other things. It might take a while, with school starting and all but we will put the finished products up later.

Bear Lake is a really fun place

and we have been there A LOT this summer.

With friends, dogs, and a canoe

These 2 pictures are not at bear lake, we were testing out the canoe before we took it to the lake. Just as expected, it was fun.

Ben and Angella with their little Curie
Random man asleep on the beach?.... He literally slept the whole time his group was there. Is it creepy that I took a picture of him? He just looked so.....dead.
Dana, Jesse, and their pup Fritz

With family

Mud wars!

And you always need someone to bury.

We will probably go again next week, and do a sandcastle day. Literally just go and build a sandcastle all day. Sounds great doesn't it? We will let you know how it turns out.

50 years

Congratulations to both my grandparents this year on 50 years of marriage. We only hope to be as cool as them one day.

Grandma and Grandpa Hancock invited the whole family out to Logan canyon to a cabin for a couple days in July. We all had a blast! Grandma said it was the closest to the celestial kingdom she will ever be on earth.

Everyone came out to bear lake for Grandma and Grandpa Walker's 50th. They love getting to see their 42 grandchildren whenever they can, so this was great to be all together in the sun!

I am so lucky to come from such an amazing family.
