So myself along with my mother-in-law and two of my sister-in-laws are starting a new 9 week health challenge today! We participated in one last summer, but decided to change it up this time. Instead of a set list of goals for everyone we each got to pick our own. I like this because I think I will be more likely so stick to the dang thing! I mean you can tell me to keep a good journal as much as you want but I will fail miserably after 2 days of it. It's just not my thing. So by choosing our own goals hopefully we will have crazy success. The whole point of it is to get us started being healthy. 9 weeks is the time frame so that we can build these habits and hopefully they stick within after the 9 weeks is up!

So I decided for some extra motivation to stick to my goals I am going to post my list here so that everyone knows about it and I will be even more motivated to stick to it! 

Numbers one and two are my New Years resolutions... But since they are health related I included it... Because it is still a challenge! 

3. Werrrkkit! (At least 4x a week)
My goal is to work out at least 4 days a week. I know it might seem low to some people, but I know I can work out more than that but if I put 5 days a week on the list and don't do it one week I will feel so defeated! 

4. 64oz of water a day.
You guys don't even know how bad I am about drinking water lately. Horrible. That's right. Horrible. 

5. No eating after 7pm.
I am going to try for 6 but with devans work and school it is sometimes later and we really like to have meals together:) and I know some days it is out of our control (like if we are with friends or family) so that is why I put 1 cheat day. 

6. Go to the temple 1x a week! 
This one is more spiritual health but I felt like it needed to be included. We have been so busy that we have been putting this kn the back burned and I seriously miss it.

7. Get ready 4 COMPLETE days a week..
This one is super embarrassing. i know! but here's the thing… most days i wake up and go to work where i am just with kids all day. Then I come home and Devan is at work or school or studying all night. So I keep telling myself nobody will see me so it doesn't matter. So most weeks I usually only end up getting dressed up 2 or 3 times. SO. I know that I feel better and more productive when I am ready and looking my best and I am going to do it! (I think Devan will appreciate it too… even though he says he thinks I am pretty anyways).

So those are my goals! And of course eating healthy too! I am excited for the next 9 weeks:) You should all join in! Just make a list of the goals YOU want and start today. It's only 9 weeks and you can do it.

This post is going to be VERY picture heavy, but hey you are going to enjoy it! Yesterday Devan and I went with my sisters Taylor and Rachel to go to the Ice Castles in Midway and then up to Park City where the Sundance film festival is going on right now.  Devan has been wanting to go to the ice castles for a while now and was so excited to be going! We didn't know too much what to expect, but it was much bigger that I imagined! It's hard to explain so just take a look.

 Side note: from this point forward I just want to warn you… Devan HATES taking serious pictures. So you can count on him to be silly, inappropriate, and who knows what in most of these pictures.

These archways were so tall and when you look up you can just imagine one coming down and stabbing you… don't worry before we were allowed to go in we signed a release form releasing them from all responsibility just in case that happens;) 

We asked a nice woman to take a photo of all of us… she just kept going! So we improvised.

A miniature cave…

So what does Devan decide to do? ay ay ay...

It really was so breathtaking with so many cool and beautiful places to look.

I love him:)

NOTICE: at this point we went to Park City and got dinner. Afterwards we decided we wanted to go back to the ice castles because they light them up at night. So the Park City pictures will be later:)

As you might have noticed this fool I know named Taylor forgot her BOOTS! All she had were her flat ballet shoes… she might have gotten frostbite. If she is missing a toe next time you see her you know why.

Devan being a great brother-in-law and carrying Taylor to the car when her feet were dying.

Welcome to Park City:)

For dinner we went to Main Street Pizza & Noodle. It is seriously good. We go almost every time we go to park city. That or the Mexican restaurant there. I would definitely suggest it if you find yourself in Park City anytime soon.

This is the best we could get…

 All in all it was a fantastic day! Hope you all have had a fantastic weekend too!

Can I just say this view was like heaven to me after all of the cold and snow these past couple of months? Seriously. Words cannot describe…

 So this past week I went to California for CHA- which stands for Craft and Hobby Association. Its a huge convention where people from all kinds of companies come and buyers from all over the world come to see your product. My moms company is a scrapbook design company.

Here is a picture of all of us that worked the booth. Me, my mom, Sean the sales director, and Cheri the design team lead.


While we were in California we got to see Matt, Kayla, and the kids. It was so funny because every time a camera came out Zellie would immediately pull this face! 

Here are some pictures of her booth! Just in case anyone was wondering...

Anyways, it was a great week filled with some sun, lots of work, and getting to see some friends I don't see very often:)
