Mr. & Mrs. Smart

I went to Arizona over the weekend for the wedding of two of my very best friends :) Lindsey Barney and Greg Smart tied the knot and I couldn't be more happy about two people I love being together forever. The wedding, dinner, and reception were flawless. Needless to say, so were the bride and groom. Just look at them!

It's always fun for us girls to get together and be bridesmaids and support each other.

My parents came to the reception, and I was so happy to see them flirting it up at one of the tables.

And I was happy to have this guy as my date.

And last but not least, I'm known for forcing the family to take pictures with me EVERY time I'm around, but hey, that's necessary when you have to say "bye, see you at Christmas". By that time, I will have another niece, and Parker will be even more grown up!

My new camera

So have you noticed the quality of photos in my last months posts increase significantly? That's because I bought this guy.

I love pictures. I Probably spend more time looking at pictures than anyone I know. So I figured now would be a good time to get a camera that actually takes a decent photo. I love you Mr. Nikon :) Can't wait for our adventures together.

You know what I love about Utah? Seasons. I love fall. I love that Utah actually experiences fall. The girls and I went up to Big Springs, just passed Vivian Park last night, it blows my mind how pretty it is right now. For your viewing pleasure:

Bahahhaha I love you teddy. This picture makes me rofl.

I would not survive without these two

for Jacie - Jar of Hearts

I know you discovered the song, but have you seen this?

Yeah Christina Perri's lyrics may be a little teenage rebel pathetic, but I love the dancing in this video. I love when people go back to the basics and use real choreography.

Dear bank account

You make me want to throw up. Is there any way you could not take the 4 plane tickets I just purchased out of my total balance? Oh, and make sure my flights home stay reserved. That would be great. THANKS WELLS FARGO YOU DA BEEEEST

But man, was it hard!

I decided to hike Timp.
I work out every day. I figured, hey I'm in shape, I do the stair stepper for long periods of time daily, I love hiking. I can do Timp.
It was such a great experience, but it was really challenging!!

So if you're planning on doing it, here's the deal. If you leave from Aspen Grove, the hike is 12.5 miles round trip. Plan on taking 3 water bottles, lunch, and a lot of snacks. The summit is below freezing at night, which makes for chilly days so bring a sweater! The hike is very steep at times, and your legs will indeed fall off if you aren't in shape. The last mile or so, Jamie and I giggled and stumbled along because we were SO ready to be done!!

Mount Timpanogos: Check.

Mountains and Quotes of the day

"We have ears to hear so let us hear. We have hands to build so let us build. We have legs to stand so let us climb. When you hide in the dark, the light always blinds. Toil not, also smother not your advantage for the plant grows straightest with moderate influence from all things."

I was sitting on top of Mount Timpanogos today and I pulled out my phone, only to find that Evan had sent me this lovely piece of work. Thanks for the quote of the day, Ev.

More pictures of the hike to come

"Arizona, I used to love you"

Alriiiight so listen up. I used to have an obsession with Arizona. I used to have Arizona pride. But ladies and gentlemen, the only reason I love Arizona these days is my Family and a few select friends. It's been real Gilbert, but I think I'm divorcing you :)

These are the precious moments with precious people who made my visit so wonderful.

Rebecca Linae Stark.Sisssssy! (the rest of the fam too, just didn't get any pictures).
Glendale, only for juggling shows of course.

Wedding festivities with "the girls" for Lindsey
Dinner with Becca and fam. This girl rocks my world.
And last but certainly not least, Parker boy. I love him so much!
