The BIG Move

On June 14th I left my house on Stratford Ave...

said goodbye to my friends in Sugar House...

moved to Twin Falls, ID...

to work for...

I loved living in Sugar House. My roommates were amazing and although our little basement apartment was a little small and brought a few challenges, I loved living there. I still miss Salt Lake but I have enjoyed being back in Idaho where I am close to my family and surrounded by agriculture. I love my job here and after 8 months I am still learning new things every day at work. It is a great place to be right now.

I have been accused of not blogging (which is true). So, I am going to try to highlight some of the events that I have failed to blog in the past year. Lets begin in June 2011...

13.1 Miles : On June 4, 2011 I ran the Fight for Air Run Half Marathon in Salt Lake City. This was my first half marathon. A few years ago it was an accomplishment just to run a 5k so a half marathon was a kind of a big deal. I have almost forgotten how long 13 miles is and may try to train to run another one this summer. :)

This happened to also be the 25th Birthday of my friend Kristi. We trained together and then ran the race on her birthday. It was so nice to have a good friend to run with and motivate me to keep going. Thanks Kristi!

My roommates, Maryn and Lisa, came to greet me at the finish line.

Luckily I have a great friend who not only spent a weekend showing me around Vegas but also took all of the pictures and blogged about our weekend. Thanks Elise!

Weekends in Idaho

It has been a busy month with 2 trips to Arizona for work and two weekends in Idaho. Here are a few pictures from the Idaho trips.


BYU Freshman Reunion...and Happy Birthday Joelle.

Joelle's friends asked her if she was having friends over for her birthday. She replied, "No, Heather's friends are coming." It may seem a little strange but I think she had a great birthday! After 4 missions, 2 graduations, and 1 marriage between us, we all got together for a fun weekend reunion in Idaho. We ran, milked cows, made fresh cheese, kayaked and just had a wonderful weekend together.

Disney Vacation!

I forgot to post these pictures. So one month later here is a little highlight of my vacation to Florida!

We spent a day at Magic Kingdom..

Universal Studios
Which meant a stop in HogsmeadeEpcot...

And we had a few days at the disney resort...time for swimming and sand castles!

These are the 11 great kids I went with. Taking 11 kids under the age of 12 swimming...thank heaven for life jackets! I got really good at counting to 11 :) We had a blast.

My HAPPY BIRTHDAY week (or two)!

I am now 23! It has been a great couple of weeks of celebration so hear are the highlights...

Monday December 27th these wonderful people came to visit...

Mom, Dad, and Joelle came down the week before my birthday and took me to dinner at Olive Garden. After dinner Dad was really nice to chauffeur us around shopping. Mom helped me pick out a new black dress coat for my birthday and I LOVE it. You will see it in most of the recent pictures below.

Monday January 3rd I picked Brent and Kristen Ludwig up at the airport after their Christmas break and they took me to Zupas for dinner.

Tuesday January 4th (MY REAL BIRTHDAY). After a 5am trip to the gym with my good friends Wendy and Janae and then a good day at work I went night skiing with Lee and Ian at Brighton. It was COLD but it was a wonderful way to spend a birthday! I love the skis that I got for Christmas. Thanks Mom and Dad!

Friday January 7th was the day of the big birthday party. At our ward auction in December I bought a party planner :) My friend Wendy planned my party and did an amazing job. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Look at this cute cake and cupcakes. Fun decorations, great food, games, and lots of wonderful friends!

Saturday January 8th I went to Provo for an evening with Elise Kelly Call. We went to YoZone for frozen yogurt but not until we had spent over an hour looking at old Jerusalem pictures. I gave you a small sample below :) Thanks for the great night Elise!

Saturday continued...after spending time with Elise I stopped by David and Ryan's apartment. If you will remember, these were some of the boys that sang to me at my birthday party last year. See here When I told David that he needed to come to SLC to my party on Friday because none of my friends here would be singing to me, he responded, "I guess you need to find new friends." Luckily I still got my birthday song when I showed up at his apartment. I tried to upload the video but it might take all night. Sorry.

Needless to say I had a wonderful time celebrating my 23rd birthday!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes.
