Fall is most definitely in the air, my friends. The crazy thing about Provo is that Fall last for like 0.6 seconds and then winter is there for years!! But astonishingly, this year we've had a couple months of fall and boy am I grateful!! You know that's actually an interesting phrase: "boy, am i grateful" psh. especially for me. i am very male-sexist and can be quite bitter and yet... here i am thanking a boy. and boys are even worse then men. well in my experience thus far. well anyhow- moving on. i shall not get more distracted with males then i already do in my daily life. and when i say males. i mean chase. nice save :D alright.
so fall..... hmmm.... sigh. i love summer best but then it has to be spring. but then its fall. and fall is so much better then winter. i like spring second because that means winter is over! fall is great with the colors and nice weather and football season but it just mocks me with its reminder of winter. so if i can compartementalize (which is practically impossible for me, ask my mother!) then i'd enjoy it. but i can't. but fall does bring great pic opps!! and thats a high priority in my life :)
just enjoying a little bit of the good ole self timer!
i'm in love.... with this pic. and the man in it <3>
me sucking my boyfriend's blood. he smells sooo tastey!
this is the shirt i crafted and my brother wore proudly!
the whole clan. that's right ladies and gentlemen. urs truly snagged 12 tickets before they were all sold out! genius. great. amazing!
and we did wait for the movie for about 3 hrs. so the night and the pics got silly. and kelly loved every minute of me encroaching into her bubble!
cousin love snug as a bug in a rug!1 i literally cannot forget lauryn. because she is the lucky girl who sat next to the pathetic girl. me, chase, and taylor had aches in our side from laughing at her neighbor. a woman. with socks and flip flops. who was close to our age but unfortunately had let herself go so she was just one hot mess. especially when edward left bella in the forest and she was BALLING. not just a tear or tear. like full on convulsions and hysterical hyperventilating type of waterworks. oh hahahahahahah.
now New Moon ended at about 330. then i went home. showered. finished up packing and headed to bluffdale because at 6 AM it was rise and shine and out the door for vegas. this actually worked out quite well because it made me dead tired so i got some sleep in the car! i had the best weekend in vegas. these kind of memories seal the deal for me. chase and his family seriously feel like my second family. they are so amazing and loving and hilarious. the perfect combination to win over my heart. we had great memories and full days of fun!
this was the car situation. at least i got to snuggle up to chase for seven hours and giggle with ciara. jessica, bryton, dave, julie, ciara, chase, and me. what good company!
and we got to see the las vegas temple. its so unique and beautiful and up on a hill. beautiful!
and as soon as we got to chase's grandparents' house... we had to stretch out and lie down. i love the interaction going on over ciara's hilarious face! and funny thing is that we totally were all in bed by like 8 pm or at least chilling and watching tv cuz the whole night before, day, car ride was exhausting!
taking some sunset pics from her balcony of lake mead. pic perfect!
some good ole family time. chef cory and jess were reunited. presh!
for some of the sight seeing times i got to sit in a bucket seat in the middle. so nice! and chase is such a yellow with his love language being touch. hahaha insider. and i have come to love it :) he is so tender and such a gentleman! my gentleman. i'm glad i dated idiots to really really really appreciate him. he is so amazing.
we were on our way to see this mansion that had the whole theme of the exterior and house building as a pirate ship theme. it was hilarious and very impressive. and HUGE!
next stop... HOOVER DAM!!! i learned so much and got to see the new construction of the bridge/road they are building. it was awesome. and epic.
then we toured Cordon Bleu chef culinary school that cory goes to :) it was way fancy and interesting. felt lucky to tour it! we also toured the food bank of vegas! charity at thanksgiving is ideal! and then we went shopping at the outlet mall. that was cool and a fun time! hilarious. then we went to this cool casino and had a great buffet. and next- christmas light touring! beautiful. fun! there were two events. one was at the chocolate factory and we walked through the forest of lights and the next was a carride through this awesome decked out parking lot of christmas lights!!
we found our red-nosed friend in the car line for the driving light show!!
the next day was beautiful weather. like all the other days in vegas. and we went for a walk and explored the desert!!! lake mead. the begining of our adventurous trek of a trip. on grandparents' street!
this is seriously like my fav pic ever. it is perfect because with chase. i do feel like i'm on top of a mountain!!! and i know its sappy and nauseatingly cheesy but thats how i feel all the time. and i'm not ashamed. im just sooo blessed and happy about all this!
ciara is the most hilarious and strong and amazing 14 year old chic ever!!!! love her! and being on boulder city taking in the view!
so we forgot how zoomed in it was but i love these kinda pics where they actually turn out beautiful. gosh chase is man pretty ;)
another candid shot of our obsession with each other. its great to me. and it counts for a lot!
and here come the artsy playground pics!
flipping around vegas with ciara. and this was right before she mis-calculated how far the ground was and flipped over but landed straight up on her face and we were freaking out she was knocked out with a concussion. be careful!!!
he gets super competitive. my life was at stake!!!
and the strip begins. trevi fountain. bryton, ciara, me, chase <3
great view <3
giving some sugar..... right under chase's nose!
a hilarious rollercoaster shot! the new york new york. so fun! love this photo. gonna fit great in my scrapbook!!!!
chad and kina and charlotte arrived!!!!! i love this baby!!! she is precious. and we also all got to enjoy a delicious huge thanksgiving meal. delicious! julie is such a great cook. i have HUGE shoes to filL!!!! eeeek.
then that night bryton, chase, and me stayed at a great casino hotel. chase's grandma, joyce, is a high roller and often gets many many free things and free hotel rooms is one of the things. well the house was getting full so us three were taken to the hotel!! whoop whoop! party!!! we explored the casino, played at the arcade, raided the gift shop, saw a free hoover damn video, and went hot tubbing and watched hilarious tv shows!!! a great night to the best weekend ever!
oh the car situation!! tender!!! overwhelmed! and we stopped and in-n-out in st george on the way home. ps has anybody seen the provo new in-n-out. those gay crazy californians are out of control with their dedication to in-n-out. can't believe how long the drive-thru line is and the line OUTSIDE the building throught the parking lot. take it easy. its yummy but not THAT obsessable. psh. californians.
anyways. i know u prolly skimmed this anaconda long blog but its necessary. this is my journal and i don't wanna forget a minute of my life <3 hahaha ok thats not absolute but still. life is pretty great. now i have to work like a donkey this week for the holiday season and get a one DAY break to go to roosevelt with tii and chase and my mom's side of the fam. it'll be great! and of course i cannot forget the..... UTAH GAME!! we better cream those utes. other wise this blog will be very depressing for a while and since chase is a utes fan... we might break up. yikes ;)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, MY LOVED ONES!!!
