One thing I am definitely not good at is eating breakfast. And if I ever did eat, it for sure was not something healthy. I found this really easy idea on Pinterest and I decided to try it out. I love it! I use a low fat vanilla greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of cubed fresh fruit, 1 tsp. honey, and 2 tbs. of granola. I make 4-5 at a time and put them in the fridge. Jory and I can just grab them and go! Click here for the link to the recipe.
And of course you have to choose to do something. Like me getting my butt up and doing that dreaded morning workout! I am really trying, and to help me keep focused I have made some goals. One of my goals is to loose just 1 pound a week for the next 8 weeks.....wish me luck! I'll let ya know how it goes!

Man I don't know how you Moms out there stay sane when your kiddos are sick!? I obviously only have what some people would call "pets" but in our house they are part of the family and we LoVe them so! My sweet Batman has been so sick with a cough/asthma for the last 3 weeks! It's been breaking my heart to hear him wheeze and cough! Plus it continues through the night so I haven't had a peaceful night of sleep for some time....... I can't imagine how I will feel when I have sick kids because the cat is killing me. So to all you mommas out there...I commend you! I can only imagine what you feel like when your little ones are sick. So until that day comes (and if you ask my mother, it can't come soon enough), I will continue treating the furry ones around this house as kiddies and worry and fuss over them ;)

So we haven't been up to much since my last post clear from last year! Things have been good at our place! We stayed busy all summer, played as much as we could. Things are starting to slow down for us now, I don't know what we will do? It drives us crazy to not have something to do. I guess we can start working on all the projects we've been meaning to start, the ones that we say we will do but never have time.... I think I will start a new exercise routine. I have not worked out in a LONG time and I AM a fatty now because of it. Sooooo I think that is going to be my new obsession. Hallelujah!
I will post a couple of pics of what we have been up to in the last year. Like I said nothing to exciting, just the typical summer stuff for us. I hope everyone has been doing fantastic. I am excited to reconnect with my blogging friends! Loads of LOVE xo
We didn't do as much boating as we would have liked to but we still made a couple lake trips to Yuba, Powell, Bear Lake and good ol' Utah Lake
We went to Yellowstone with my parents and had the most amazing weekend trip! We stayed in this dive of a hotel in Montana, ate fantastic pizza and beer, and got attacked by a crazy bird!
This was my highlight of the summer! I did my first ever overnight backpacking trip! Don't ask me how I survived with all these boys! This is something I have wanted to do my entire life. I guess you could say I crossed it off my bucket list. Seriously was so much fun. We are talking about doing another one here soon, and maybe one in early winter. I can not wait!
Jory and I got away together for a relaxing weekend in Denver. We've been there before but we just love that city! And of course we had to go to a Rockies game while we were there, Seth Smith is just as sexy in person as he is on TV! We had a great weekend together and made some really great memories that we will never forget!

Jory's dad took all the kids to Cabo for Thanksgiving for a week. The hotel we stayed at was gorgeous but not all that fun haha. The pool was freezing cold and they had NO hot tubs....whats wrong with them! Still it was a good time and we got to do some much needed relaxing. Here are a couple of pics from our adventures.Abby, Callan, Jace and Morg chillin the the pool.

great but good enough to have a good time. I seriously LOVE to snowboard. I did however find out that I am completely out of shape.....ugh! Luckily my foot is feelin much better with the screw out.... so I guess now would be a good time to get in shape?? Oh hell I hate being fat and out of shape it really BLOWS!
Trav finally can buy his own beer...man that means I'm getting OLD. So of course we loaded up and filled all our pockets with cans. Can't you tell in the next picture, my coat would almost not zip up. Jory had one in his pant pocket which decided to explode on one of our runs...it looked like he peed his pants:) Thank goodness for waterproof pants or he would have been one cold boy!
Havin a little fun at the lodge
It was a pretty good day as far as weather goes. There was a little fog up high earlier in the day but for the most part sunny skies. At this point in the day my legs were on FIRE. I didn't think I was going to make it down the mountain let alone another run. Thankfully Jesse and Justin came and found us and took us to play on some jumps they had found. Jory likes to race down the mountain....my legs not so much.
It was a fun day and I can not WAIT to do it all winter long!

1. Jory and I just got back from Cabo....it was fun but I would have rather had Thanksgiving with my family. We have been out of town for Thanksgiving for the last 2 years.
2. Had my final surgery on my foot! Hardware is removed, snowboarding here I come!
3. Jory and I indulged and bought ourselves season passes to Sundance. We can not wait to go!
4. My family is coming to stay at our house for Christmas! I can't wait to see them!
5. I have not bought a Christmas tree yet......better get on that!
6. We just barely took down our Halloween decorations, I know we are total SLACKERS!
7. I am attempting to make my first quilt with the help of my aunt Laurie. I'm sure she is regretting her decision.
8. Jory's truck is broken and I truly hate it! Hopefully he can get it working and trade the bugger in!
9. Hoss came to visit and he wasn't here long enough! I miss him so much everyday, I hope he will come home for the Christmas but you never know with him.....
10. Travy turned 21 finally! We took him out to Tavernacle and spent the night in SLC. Then we partied the night away with my parents out in Wendover. It was such a great time, I don't remember when I had that much fun last!
