Ok, so not to make any of you mothers jealous but my friends and I planned this trip to California in less than 45 minutes! We chose any city close to the ocean, booked a hotel room, packed and left all within 45 minutes. We left St. George at 7:30pm on Friday night and arrived in Long Beach at 2am. Our hotel room overlooked the ocean so we accomplished our goal of getting a room with a great view. The next day (after sleeping in a little of coarse...again, don't be jealous!) we started driving up Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped at a little mexican restaurant I think called "Rosa's" (or something like that probably?!?) hoping for some really good authentic mexican food. I'm not sure about the "really good" part but it was authentic alright! We really didn't care though because seriously we were just glad to be on vacation ...(and glad to have something to eat.)

After lunch we kept driving north (I think) passing through Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach (where we stopped to eat yummy yogurt at pinkberry) and ended at Santa Monica Pier. LOVED Santa Monica Pier! We had so much fun. For dinner we ordered take out from California Pizza Kitchen and took it down to the beach at sunset. The ocean was beautiful, the weather was perfect, the shopping was therapeutic and overall this trip rates as a top 5 on my favorite trips list!!

My advice to those who always have to have a plan.... CHANGE! It's great to just wing it sometimes.

It was AWESOME!!! Enjoy the pics...


A few of my girl friends wanted to go to Vegas so we decided to go to the show "Tournament of Kings" at the Excalibur. We had a great time! Just a lil' shout out to all the girls on this trip, "Pump, Pump, Pump it up!!!" ha, too funny!

Do they come any more cute??!!

Just a few pictures of my adorable niece's and all the cute little girls in our family! I love you all SO much!! Hopefully one day I'll have little girls as cute as all of you!

Havin fun in Costa Rica!

A few pictures from my trip to Costa Rica in August....

Just a little update... I'm living in St. George, UT. I live in a 3bd/2bath apartment with Brande (a girl that works with me). We turned the 3rd bedroom into an office so it works out well for us. Brande just moved from Salt Lake down to St. George in June.

Hope you all are enjoying your married and family lives as much as I'm enjoying my single life! :)

Love you all!!

Easter Fun!

For Easter this year I went camping up at Little Creek with all the family. I had so much fun seeing all my cousins and their adorable kids! Rhonda is officially the best partner ever to have when playing "sardines" so if you ever get the chance, don't let it pass you by! :)
