Well, besides the fact that i've been a blogging bummer (sorry bout that)...I have a perfectly legit excuse: i have nothing to blog about. So actually, you should be thanking me because I may just bore you to pieces. However, I shall pull bits and pieces together to make a blog about randomness. So here it goes...

Yesterday, Lyla Jane Leavitt was born! A new baby cousin for me! Pretty sure she will be introduced into the blog-o-sphere soon...that post will happen HERE.

My WONDERFUL cuz Annie has agreed to accompany my sister and I to MICHAEL BUBLE! (enter girlish scream here) cuz i cannot wait to hear him crooning to me from the nose bleeds. Count down to August 28 starts now.

Besides working, I have been trying to have somewhat of a social life...which includes the singles branch. So we went bowling and my team may have had the most legit bowling names ever. From LtoR, Taryn It Up, K Rad, Willy The Kid & Saucy Aussie.

Pretty sure the fab 4 have been re-united after a small 10 year break. You see, the Willards and my fam were neighbors in the 90's. Those were the days.

GAH. im 20.

20 kind of seems like a big milestone. People actually do things with their lives in their 20's. I mean, my mom was listing off everything she did in her 20's: Got married, graduated college, had me, moved to NV, moved again, had my sister, built a house...the list goes on...and here I am at the beginnging. So i've come to the decision that the choices I make now will definitely make a difference in how i live my life...forever! So, just a few things I hope to succeed in my 20's: Keep going to school, go on a mission, get married, graduate (those 2 in either order haha) and from there i am undecided. Gotta leave some room for spontaneity, right? Because:

"If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything." -Win Borden

I like that...maybe it's because it gives me an excuse to procrastinate ;) So, here's to the next 10 years, planned out...with some surprises.

Now a few pictures from celebrating yesterday. Me and the fam headed to Vegas and hit up the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Fashion Show Mall, Outlet Mall, and MGM.

{i'm still taking applications for those who would like to attend Michael Buble's concert with me on August 28}

{oh Tiffany & Co. Someday our paths will cross}

I especially enjoyed all the facebook messages and texts form all of you. Thanks!

Happy 4th!

We celebrated our 4th of July on Saturday...celebration which included:

Early morning 4wheeler ride out to Wheelie Flats

{just imagine Ari bustin through that mud puddle behind them, trying not to get stuck, and you can hear Mady screaming}


{and glow in the dark apparel}

And of course, our own firework show
My favorite thing about the 4th: means my bday is only 2 days away :)
