A Summer Weekend

We live for the weekends (like I think most people do) and this one was exceptionally good. 
First, last weekend I attempted this braid and was pretty proud of myself. It definitely took a few practice tries. 
So ya, I'm addicted to puppies. 
I want one reeeeally bad, but I know it just wouldn't be possible for us right now. So Scott is basically the best and rents me a puppy. Let me tell you, even just an hour with a puppy fills up your internal happy tank.
I get a lot of questions about how you can rent a puppy. If you live in utah, check out this website. 
 This is frankie. And he's my favorite puppy of the three we've rented this summer. He was ADORABLE, playful and cuddly. 
 He played and played until he crashed. Then the three of us cuddled on the couch while he napped. Ya, it melted my heart. 
 Saturday we went boating with my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin. The water was a little rough, but it was sunny, warm and so fun to be out on the lake. We did a lot of surfing!

The 4th and Wicked

For the 4th of July weekend we headed down to the amazing Lake Powell with my family. There are so many wonderful pictures from the trip that I want to share, so I'll just post a few I took on my phone for now. We had such a wonderful time and I finally got a little bit of a tan!
I still tried to dress patriotic for the 4th! The red rocks against the blue water and the white clouds were pretty fitting for the day!
 My week days have been filled with working at the hospital (and loving it). So, we've been trying to fill our weekends with lots of summer fun. Friday night we went to see Wicked in Salt Lake City. My parents bought me tickets for my birthday and I was literally counting down the days! I've always had a love for musicals and this is one of my favorites. I was also super excited to take Scott to his first Broadway musical. 
 It was AMAZING!

Skirt|Agnes&Dora (they run a little big. I got an XS)  Tee|Gap on sale!  Wedges|VS, similar

Sorry for the crappy picture quality. I was lazy and took them with my phone

I have heard friends ranting and raving about Agnes and Dora leggings and skirts for some time now and so I finally got one to see what all the rage was about. OK. Let me tell you. This is skirt is AHHHHmazing! The fabric is soft, stretchy, thick but not too thick and did I mention the amazing print? Ya, I give it a 10 out of 10. I've always loved being girly and dressing up for church on Sundays, but for the last few months I have been working in the nursery with 18 month olds and my typical church dress isn't quite functional. This skirt was the perfect answer! I had no problem getting down and playing on the ground, pick up little ones and running around. So ya, obviously I ordered three more skirts in different prints:) Oh, and I think 26 bucks is a steeeeal for this cuteness and quality:)

Hope you all are having an awesome day!
