R Mountain

During the summer, Mark and I climbed R mountain with our friends Brandon and Malorie Pope. It was a gorgeous summer day and the view was amazing. Later that day we floated the river and that was an andventure in itself.

Figure 8 Racing

During the summer, we went to the Madison County Fair Grounds to watch some fugure 8 racing. We decided to dress up white trash and go on a date with some friends. Funny thing was, we blended right in. We looked like we belonged! There were many laughs that night!

Family in Logan

A few weeks ago, my side of the family all got together. It was such a fun trip. Mark and I really enjoy every moment that we get to spend together with family. I am so blessed to have such an amazing family. How grateful I am to know that our Family is Forever!


I am WAY behind in blogging but I had some time so sit today so I thought I would begin to catch up. This summer Mark and I went shooting with some friends. This was a special trip for me becuase I have never shot a gun! It was so much fun, I even shot a bottle. We are even looking to buy me a gun! Mark had never been on a 4 wheeler either so it was a first for the both of us! Thanks Breezie and Matt for taking us!

Trip to Arizona

A couple of weeks ago Mark and I had the opportunity to go to one of our best friends wedding in Arizona. It was a MUCH needed get away for Mark and I. Not only did we get to go to Arizona to see our friends Brandon and his beautiful wife Malorie get married, I got to see some of my closest friends from college.

While In Arizona we stayed at my Uncle Terry and Aunt Dawn's house. We had a blast with them and their children. We couldn't of asked for better weather while in Arizona. The day we left Rexburg it was literally a "white out." You couldn't see anything. While in Arizona it was 90 degrees, I miss that! We also got to go to the zoo with some friends the day after.

Here is how the trip went...
Tuesday April 16- Drive to Arizona with Brandon (A lovely 14 hour car ride)

Wednesday April 17- Went to the mall, had In n Out, Went and did a session in
the Mesa, Az temple.

Thursday April 18- Spent time with my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins.
It was a blast. We got to play all day and even went to
Cosco for a hot dog and drink.

Friday April 19- Went to the "Brandon and Mallorie Pope Wedding." followed by
the reception.

Saturday April 20- Went to the Phoenix Zoo with TJ and Brie Anderson, Bernie
and Brittany Farfan, and Joey Conway.

Sunday April 21-Fly back to Salt Lake City, Utah followed by a drive back to

Mark and I had an amazing weekend. We went in between school semesters so we both needed the break! It was so nice just being able to spend some time together, as this doesn't happen all the time with our crazy schedules.

We went to the Zoo on Saturday and the Zebra had just had a baby on Tuesday! It was so cute!

Back To The Singles Ward!

A few weeks ago we got a phone call that would change the course of our lives for the next few years. We got a phone call to meet with the Stake President of the BYUI 5th stake. We were really confused at first because we are part of the 8th stake at BYUI. After meeting with the Stake President he extended a call to serve as 1st counselor in the bishopric in a singles ward on campus.

We are very excited and nervous about this new change. Mark will do a great job and we are excited to see what the Lord has in store for us next.

Big Judds

In Idaho they have a hamburger place called Big Judds. It is one of those places that you must do while you live in Rexbur. Mark and I went with some friends last night and ordered the Big Judds Special, which is a 1 lb cheeseburger. Not only is it a pound of meat, it comes with lots of toppings and a massive bun. Mark and I decided that we would split one. It was a lot of fun. Here is a picture of the cheeseburger before we dove into it.
