Last Summer...August

Life is still crazy lately, and it's about to get crazier, but I'm two weeks away from finishing my first semester of grad school! And my grades are pretty good :)

Let's jump back to August for a minute. Quinn was sweet and chubby. 

Hallie turned 3! She gets the whole birthday present thing.

I got her all sorts of things, including this pink cup (her favorite color), some princess band-aids and a couple pairs of Peppa Pig pajamas. She was very thankful and sweet.


My ward Relief Society had a Spanish cooking night with a couple guests from Spain. I miss that place and that food, and I got on a real pan tomate kick after that. Bread, olive oil, garlic and tomatoes. Don't need much more than that.

Got my hairs did. Syndey is amazing.

More niece time.


You can't even tell what this photo is, but I think I won these tickets at work or Lacey had them, I went to see Culture Club. Wowza, wowza. I'll tumble for ya....

Back at Red Butte for Ryan Adams. Man, he's just so good. This marked two summers in a row of seeing him, and I've got summer 2017 tickets now too.

I forget her name, but I love Ryan's Dr Pepper machine on stage.




Olympics!! I should've watched way more synchronized swimming.

Taylor and Courtney went on a little trip, so I stayed with the nieces for a few days.


She's obsessed with dresses.


I even managed to take both of them to their cousin's birthday party without too many issues. Two kids, two carseats, a little drive.


This old guy was the security guard at my local grocery store, and he was the sweetest! Always greeted you and said thanks for coming in when you left. I was so sad to see this sign! I almost went to the funeral because I thought he was so cute.
Summer Corporate Games! We didn't do as well at trivia this year as last year. Oh well. Still fun.
My team did, however, win mini golf!


I think I was even sick that day and planning not to play, then a couple people cancelled last minute and I went in. Look at us, bringing home the gold.

End of August means September Issues! I love magazines.

Super random photo, but Miles has a lovely garden and had people over for make-your-own-salad-from-my-garden-greens night.


My parents came to town for August birthday celebrations (theirs and Hallie's) and it was also the first time they met Anthony. I was a nervous wreck. I don't do the 'introduce the person you're dating to your parents' very much. Or like, never. We had a great BBQ and a relaxed evening with some cousins who came over, too. And I shouldn't have even worried about the big intro, cause it's fine, and I think they liked him alright :)




I got a German chocolate cake for birthday celebrations.


I'm ready for summer nights to come back.








Her little braids :)


This was during her wedding monologue - talking about what dress she wants to wear.


Some random flowers that I don't remember.

He steals my phone and leaves me with these self-portraits.

Dinner out before the parents left town.
