Obsessed.

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!

My Birthday and More

It has been too long since I've blogged. I can't even remember everything that has been going on! 
Life has been so busy, but so awesome!
June 19th was my birthday and I really wasn't expecting much. I was excited to have finished my finals and have the day to do whatever I wanted. And it turned out to be my best birthday yet!
I came home from lounging at the pool to this setup^ I seriously have the best husband. Ever. I think he is well aware by now what my favorite color is. ha ha
For lunch, we picked up my brother from tennis camp and ate at Cubby's. It was so fun to be able to spend a little bit of time with him on my birthday. I wish I had taken a picture!
Once Scott got home from work he took me up to Salt Lake City to walk around downtown. We went to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (It's one of my favorites). 
The waiter offered to bring a cheesecake for my birthday and we were pretty full but since he offered (and we incorrectly assumed it would be free) we said why not. It was delicious though. I don't regret it one bit. 
After dinner, we took a carriage ride around temple square. It is my favorite place. I have so many wonderful memories there. It was the first time we had taken a carriage ride there since we left our wedding reception. 
Once we were home, Scott surprised me again with my all time favorite dessert- a apple pie caramel apple from rocky mountain chocolate factory. And he put sparklers in it for fun :)
Friday night Scott, Nick and I ate ice cream and  played with sparklers and the long exposure on my camera. We had so much stinkin fun. 
On Saturday some of our best friends came into town and we were able to spend the whole day with them. We spent time at their parent's house playing with the brand new, two day old, baby goats (they were probably the cutest things I've ever seen) and miniature horses. 
That's the boys taking care of the baby miniature horse. 
That night the four of us went to see the production of Mary Poppins at the Hale Center theater. To say it blew me away is an understatement. This is the only picture we all got together and it makes us all look chubby, but oh well. It was such a fun night!
Sunday we went up to Scott's parent's place to celebrate my birthday and my sister-in-law, Ashley's too. Three family birthdays in one week. Partay. 
My mother-in-law made these cute cakes (well mine was gluten-free brownies with frosting). We had so much fun celebrating together. 
 Since then, I started my internship at the hospital and I am absolutely LOVING it!

Phew, now I'm all caught up.

Summer is Here

Life has been extremely busy the last few weeks! Lots of crazy homework assignments, thesis data collection and stressful tests. But I'M DONE!! I'm done with graduate school classes and classes in general forever! Sure I've got two internships, writing a thesis and the praxis exam ahead of me before I get my masters degree, but I'm done with a huge part. It feels great! I really can't believe how fast it went and that I'm already to this point. We took these pictures with my cohort after our last class. 
I start my first internship at the hospital on Monday, and I'll be honest I'm pretty terrified and kind of excited too. Meanwhile, Scott and I have been enjoying the outdoors. We hiked the Y at sunset after class and work a week ago and the views were so gorgeous.
My little brother Nick came into town to stay with us for a few weeks while he goes to sports and youth camps at BYU. It is SO much fun to have him around! We have always been super close and I love that he gets to live with me for a little while each summer. 
He always seems so much taller every time I see him!
During the craziness of school work and finals I bought some gorgeous peonies that caught my eye at Costco.  It really is amazing how a simple thing like fresh flowers in your home can lift your spirits :)
Scott took me out to eat at Cubby's (the most amazing local place) for being done with grad school classes. Their salads are so freaking delicious!!
Saturday morning I picked Nick up from EFY (youth camp) and had a super fun day planned for us. We hiked the Y since Nick hadn't before, went to 180 tacos for lunch (obsessed with that place), hung out at the pool, played ping pong, and rented a puppy. It was a fun filled Saturday for sure! Summer is here!!
