One time I went to Paris with my fam. I love it there. Here's a picture I found that I love of Maffoo and me. I did a little experimenting with it in photoshop.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm so grateful for my amazing family including this little lady that showed up dressed for the holiday!

I'm a fan..

of being a fan! I've always supported the cougars through my college years- going to sporting events, wearing blue, belting out the BYU fight song at games... but the big game tomorrow has brought my school spirit to a whole new level! I think it must be the fact that I' surrounded by Utah fans everyday, all day at work. My manager and I are about the only cougars on our floor. Anyway, I've definitely had to stand up for my alma mater! To do this I decorated my cubicle and assisted my manager in writting on some of the Utah fan's windows. We may have written the entire BYU fight song on one window..haha. It has been an exciting week to say the least! Yeah BYU!!

Our CEO brought around BYU and U football cookies this morning to everyone in the company!
my manager's door didn't make it the entire day..

Did you know?

today I joined the gym, even though I don't really care for gyms, but my jogs have been determined by the weather lately so I thought I better have some options when the snow comes! Anyway, I was excited to be introduced to the cinema room at this particular gym! This takes care of all the things I hate about gyms- people seeing me red faced and sweaty (it's a dark room), getting bored (movie playing), people checking each other and themselves out in the mirrors (no mirrors).. this is a great invention!

I put together my costume one hour before going to four parties with Stace. Every year I say I'm going to plan something long in advance, but it never changes.. hence my history of last-minute costumes: snowman, Christmas tree and this year, drumroll please... candy corn..haha!!! (Stace, McCall and Steph looked amazing as you can see!)
this girl whips me into shape with her awesome skills and pilates machine and shares my love for delicious frozen yogurt (YES we drove around for about an hour trying to find Red Mango in SLC, there was lots of google texting and 411 calling involved and it was so worth it)! Red mango is up there with Pinkberry. This was after a great dinner at Trio and the Halloween dance show "Thriller".. excellent Saturday night!Jenny extremely excited to have finally found our frozen yogurt! mmmm!

.. now you know.

The famous Castle Rock (view from Jess and Nick's place)

this is what hummers do.. ahhh(that's me gripping onto the bar)! Nick only drove us up and down this rock about 6 times!
Other highlights include seeing Jess and Nick give talks in their branch of 10 people, eating yummy maverick frozen yogurt and playing yahtzee until we fell asleep.
It was such a fun, adventure filled weekend and the best part was just hanging out with my sis and the new husband! :) Thanks Jess and Nick!!!

Fall with McCall

This is my other roommate McCall. We met while working in Maine at Camp Vega a few years ago. We had two nights in a row last week of awesomeness- thursday mountain biking, seeing the beautiful fall colors and then trying out a new cupcake shop in Sugar House. On Friday we went on a ghost storytelling tour of SLC! It was more historical then really creepy... always a good time with McCall!

Okay, I know I've been complaining about being a grown up, but I really do love what I do for my job! I'm currently getting certified as a wellness coach and am very excited to start with new clients next week!

doesn't get much better than this..

more evidence..

that I don't like being a grown up! I'd like to introduce something we like to call "prop night". All you need is a camera, random items from around your room and awesome friends that make you laugh until you're hurtin'...

I'd also like to introduce my new roommate Stef! She tells me about cool bands and concerts...

and I tell her about "prop night"!
