24th of July Weekend

We had a bit of an exciting weekend celebrating the 24th of July. (If you have a weak stomach I would advise you to not look at the pictures below)

We went to the Ogden Rodeo with my family & grandparents on Friday night.

Saturday my dad, Josh, & I went mountain biking. It didn't end as well as i'd hoped. We were almost done when I was riding around a corner and had slowed down because it was a rockier part of the trail. Unfortunately I was too far on the left side of the trail (on the left side there was a drop off to a hill full of rocks). Anyways, after slowing I had no stability and no where to put my left leg and ended up toppling off the side of the trail. Josh heard me yell and came back. Long story short, ended up in the Instacare to get my first set of stitches in my shin. Four stitches later I came out with a sexy pink bandage. Apparently, I still need to work on my mountain biking abilities :)
We spent the rest of the day with my family as planned, went to Raging Waters. This didnt' end up being much fun for me because I wasn't allowed to get wet due to the new stitches. Then we had a delicious rib dinner at my parents. Next year i'll try to enjoy the 24th withOUT the stitches:)

The witch is dead!!

Disclaimer: Many of you will have no idea what the heck i'll be talking about. With that said, I had to blog about it because this has been a momentous time in my life and I will need to look back and remember this day.

Ding dong the witch is dead, the wicked witch is dead!

After 6 years, Felicia is dead!!!!! yes yes yes! (Don't worry, Felicia isn't a person or an animal). I have fought with this Felicia for years and she has finally decided to die. I couldn't be happier.

The end.

Weekend of Randomness

This weekend didn't turn out like we expected. We had planned to go on a hot air balloon ride Saturday morning (we tried going on my birthday but had to reschedule due to winds). So anyways, Josh called the morning of (5:30 am, we had to be there at 6:30 am in Park City), and the man said everything was great and to come on up. So we listened, and drove up to Park City and met up with about 15 other people who were ready to ride as well. The man shows up, gathers us around, and tells us the winds are too fast-yet again-and it's cancelled. Josh and I were so mad! This was 2 times in one week, my hopes were dashed. So we were sitting there in Park City at 6:30am in the morning with nothing to do because we were meeting my mom & Bree later so we had to stay. We ended up walking down Main St and window shopping as well as checking out some of the super cool old houses up there, as well as shopping at the outlets. Didn't end up turning out half bad.

We picked up Bree to stay the weekend with us, we had a blast & she loved playing with Romeo all weekend. Saturday we went to the 16th Annual Llama Fest in Spanish Fork. Super random event, glad we went (Trev & Char tagged along as well). We knew it was going to be weird-I mean, it was a festival celebrating Llamas. Therefore, because of the weird event we dressed up in equally weird clothes. It made for a good time. Bree had fun, she fed the Llamas, we watched a Llama obstacle course, and a competition on which Llama looked the best. Oh yes, and I need to tell you about the Llama races. Those were hilarious, they lined all the participating Llamas up, and had a leash thing around their kneck & head with a volunteer holding onto the leash. Basically, the winner of the race depended on which volunteer could drag their Llama by the face the fastest. Oh man, those Llamas...

It turned out to be a good weekend-definitely random-but fun!

23 years ago I was born.

My brother and I celebrated our 23rd birthday yesterday. I can't believe we're getting so old...I still feel like a kid, and shoot-act like one too! My wonderful husband planned a whole day of fun for me. It started off with a hot air balloon ride above park city......NOT. Actually we drove up there and when we arrived they told us that the winds were too fast on the peaks to go. So, we rain checked that for this Saturday.
After that didn't go our way we went to the pool and relaxed in the sun after having a BBQ. Josh & I have a mutual love for this cute little food place in Provo called's a college student staple. He suprised me and got all of the supplies the night before and he BBQ'd it all up for me, delicious! We went down a few of the water slides at the pool and it reminded me of my wussyness. Oh yes, then before we headed out we got some AMAZING snow cones (Katie, Lauren-my hawaiian vacation friends....their just as good as the snow cones in Hawaii, maybe better-go try one!)

That night my family got together for dinner at Ruths Diner (Featured on my fav show, 'Diner's Drive-in's and Dives). It's super cute and super nummy. Then we went to Sugarhouse Park to open presents and have dessert. Trevor and I both got spoiled, like always! Now that i'm married I have two families and got the birthday treatment at Josh's Parents house as well! Spoiled, spoiled, spoiled.


We found a new little hike right by our house! The best part is that it leads to a waterfall. I think all hikes should lead to a waterfall.

July 4th

We celebrated the 4th the way we always do (the best way): watching the Centerville parade, going to the park afterwards, eating all-american BBQ'd foods, and finished it off with some fireworks. All in all, a good time, a good day, and I love my 4th of July traditions :)

Sharp Family Reunion 2010

This year the Sharp Family Reunion was at a big cabin right next to Brighton Ski Resort. It was a lot of fun and a great location. It was good seeing everyone too, Josh has quite the big family compared to mine so it's hard to keep in touch with all of them! I believe the count is 29 at this point (compared to 7 on my side) and 2 on the way!
While we were there we went biking, fishing, walked around this lake that was right by the cabin, horseshoe tourny (we lost), played The Amazing Race with the adults (I lost, Josh's team won), and went boating. It was a good time, I can't wait to see what they have in store next year.

My Twinners Wedding

Last Friday, June 25th, my little twin brother got married to the love of his life. The wedding turned out beautiful, I think it was perfect for them. Cheers to a life of happiness!

The rehearsal dinner.

The wedding.
