RHCP - We have such an awesome life!

This week was thus far the busiest and best of all September!
Last Thursday Preston, myself and 7 of our dearest friends went to Denver Colorado for the day to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The concert was originally scheduled for March 3rd earlier this year but got canceled and rescheduled for September 27th (which worked out really excellent for me because I was admitted into the hospital late the night of the 3rd and I was really happy to have my sweetheart and friends come and be with me)!

The majority of our group drove to Denver Wednesday evening but because we had to be back in good time on Friday Preston, Elliot, Alyssa and myself flew out the following morning.
 here we are waiting for our shuttle - ironically the man who was waiting for the same shuttle and took this photo for us was in my photo class at UVU last summer
 waiting to board our lovely 61 minute flight to d-d-d-denver!

Our faithful friends Mike and Ben dutifully picked us up from the airport from which we picked up the rest of our group and with 9 packed (safely) into a minivan went into the city for some good old fashion tourism and photo taking.

After three hours of screaming songs, dancing like mad and gagging on our neighbors weed smoke we made a very fitting trip to a local Denny's and picked the food items that would make us feel most sick, which we were very successful at! 
We lucked out to have a place to crash for a couple hours (Ben and Taylors sister lives near Denver), and when I say a couple, I mean a couple! We got in at about 1:30 and slept till five, left at 5:15 for the airport where we shortly boarded our 6:17 flight to SLC.. was it worth it? INDEED IT WAS! 
Shuttle back to the car from the SLC airport in the early morning hours

BASICALLY it was the best 20 hours ever. 

Well all, look forward to a post from Presto covering the rest of the week and it's ventures!


Goodbye Summer

Amanda and I in Bear Lake for my family Reunion.

We care SO much about food
The beautiful summer is officially over and magical fall has just begun. I, for one, couldn't be more excited that fall is here because we have officially been engaged through all of the seasons which means our marriage is in the midst. We are busy little bees between circus, school, wedding, Crossfit and generally being radical dudes and that just makes time fly by even faster!  Surprisingly between the both of us we have only had partial mental breakdowns but we are really refining our time management/selective procrastination skills.  It has helped immensely to know there is a light at the end of our busy tunnel, we are so excited for the transition from busy bookworm workaholic circus freaks to hobo-esque world traveling eternal companions. But really Amanda and I have learned the very important lesson of making the best of anything. I owe a great deal of this skill to my sweet Amanda who on any occasion can make me laugh so hard my feet hurt. I am so excited to spend the rest of eternity with this sweet girl and we are so happy to share this spectacular journey with all of you! We will continue to stay positive and update this blog with our day to day escapades we love you all goodnight!

Our week

Thursday night we got to go to my cousin Mark, and his new wifey Rachel's wedding dinner. It was a great time with great food and great people. The whole thing went wonderfully and made us super excited for our own wedding to get here! Presto and I can't wait to be their neighbors in November!

Earlier this week we did some food tasting with a potential caterer. The photo below is of Presto teaching me to how to eat out of a cup.

Here we are studiously working on our registry at Target. Presto is the gun king/hog, this photo is one of the small handful of times I ever had the gun in my possession. 
that boy loves his sponges!

(Pretend the next picture is me holding Preston) Us at the circus!

Ok, maybe it is me and Amber, boy and I will work on getting more cute work pictures together..

xoxo all, and goodnight!


Not that I am counting..

54 more days to go!

For any of you who have talked to Preston or myself recently, you know that we love countdowns. We love that the numbers keep getting smaller, and smaller especially when we started out with a number such as 334. If you ask Preston, we are getting married in 8 more fridays (which really freaks me out because that is a single digit number, a whole new level of excitement!), but who's counting, right?

So as the first official post on our cute little blog I thought I would throw on some (fairly) recent photos.

More to come from our crazy wonderful lives, stay tuned!
