Celebrating the 24th

We don't do a lot of celebrating. Maybe its because everyone here in Utah is celebrating Pioneer Day, and we don't usually (there's a reason I don't, but Chase has steered me in the right direction - or at least he would like to steer me in the right direction). Chase and I first started off at his parents to wash the bike and to also let the Hurls run around. We are terrible at taking him out and plus its just so hot I mean 97 degrees probably is nothing compared to the heat out in Cali. But still. We should be better about it - it also sucks to keep him on a leash the whole time he's out.

Then we took the dog home changed into shorts and swim attire and headed out for the second annual Foam Day that Lehi City put on.


Had to show the legs! The foam was EVERYWHERE!

All foamed up!
Everyone was lovin it! Even the parents!
It was everywhere!
Then they had a place to get all the foam off. That's what I was standing in and getting all wet trying to get my icky legs cleaned off.


Then we were off to Kennecott Copper Mine. I found out they were having a free week or something, thought it would be perfect to check it out before it ended tomorrow. Gotta take advantage of all the free things in Utah!
The view. I think it's a lot different since the last time I went there when I was like 12 or so.

Such a stud!



After getting back Chase really wanted to start grilling. He suggested we make hamburgers, but I suggested BBQ chicken. So this is my man grilling on our little camping grill. 
He also wanted to make sure everyone knew we grilled on the 24th!
Such a hunk! Too bad he got super sunburned today! :(
The set up!
Isn't this a great set up!? Better than a stand up grill!
Hurley kept whining when we both were outside without him. Such a cute puppy!
Such a cute puppy! 

We had an absolute fun day, and I definitely wore Chase out! Even after we went swimming tonight! (We love having a pool at our condo!) 

Did you have a fun weekend!?

Anniversary Weekend



So Monday was our anniversary, (I know this post is a little late, but I haven't been feeling too good the last few days) but since it was my year to decide what to do I planned the whole weekend full of fun things for us to do. It started Saturday Morning because Friday night we had a ward BBQ and since we are on the activities committee we had to be there to help run everything.

I got all of my ideas from this blog. I have fallen in love with this blog it helps so much.

Saturday morning I had chase pick 1 of 3 envelopes.

The one he picked said this:

The other 2 said this:


Unfortunately there are only 2 diners that we know of, Denny's and Ihop. Chase chose Denny's. We also were dropping Hurley off at my parents place to let him play with Sam. So we had to coordinate with them, we didn't get to eat until about 11am, which ended up being more like a brunch. We had dessert and everything! Then we got in the car and I handed him 3 more envelopes
Chase picked this one:
Here are the other ideas in the other 2 envelopes:


So any of these would have been fun. We actually did two of them since one was "A trip to your favorite store", and we needed time to kill. Chase decided we'd go and see Iron Man 2 in the dollar theatre. I'll be honest it wasn't as good as the first one. Definitely not enough action, even Chase agrees with that.

After we went to the movie we waited to open the next envelope.
Chase picked the envelope and this is what it said:
He actually wanted me to pick the restaurant. I thought of one that we haven't tried near where we live. But then I thought of Marley's at the Harley Davidson Place in Lindon. We were both worried that they wouldn't be open, because there was only 1 car outside. But sure enough they were open. The sliders were a lot smaller than what I was thinking for some reason. I actually was thinking that sliders were like french fries. haha I was totally wrong. We got 3 different ones, the fries and a drink. We really liked it and were glad that we tried a new place to eat.
 We did find this bottle cap in one of the tables and Chase had to take a picture of it

These were in the other 2 envelopes:


The final envelope was called "Lovin'"
  
Chase had me pick this one, since he had picked all the others earlier that day. But before I opened it we watched the netflix movie that we got earlier that day which was called Fireproof (I have a review of the movie that I will post later).
This is the envelope I picked:

I won't go into details, but it was very relaxing.

Here's what was in the other 2 envelopes:


Chase really enjoyed the day and was glad that we did things that we wouldn't normally do. We tried to be very frugal. Thankfully he got an extra $100 from his work party from judging. We didn't even spend it all.

Sunday was very relaxed. Slept in without a dog waking us up at the crack of dawn. Went to church, not too happy that I went because I walked into sacrament meeting and all the girls from girls camp were up on the stand and I thought if they have extra time then they are going to ask me to come and bear my testimony and share my experiences of camp. Sure enough they did, I hope everyone understood what I said. I am in no way a public speaker and for some reason I have the hardest time sharing what I feel. Anyways everything was good, and we had a good lesson on the Priesthood, and family history. After church we came home and relaxed I made this yummy dessert that I have been dying to make! Everything turned out great!

Sorry no dinner pictures

Monday we got to sleep in again, and ate lunch at Rumbi Grill, we wouldn't have gone if  I didn't have coupons. Chase said that he couldn't believe he had never been there before because of how good it was. I have been there before and remember that they used cilantro in everything and how gross it was for me. This time was SO good, and we want to go back again. Sorry no pictures.

After we went Bowling at the Jack N' Jill Lanes in Lehi. I had another "date" planned. Plus we had never been bowling together. First I bought a bag of M&M's, and each color was something different we had to do. I apparently didn't buy a big enough bag cause we only had enough to last both of us 9, and then bowled normal the last round.
Nice butt shot
Us before the game with the M&M's

This is a pretty funny picture. I think he might be a bit embarrassed by this picture. teehee
This is our score cards. Chase thought I was going to beat him at the beginning, but look he was 1 point off where I was 17 points off of my guess.
Final Score


For dinner we went to Braza Grill up in Murray it's a lot like Tucano's except they have actual people that work there that speak Portuguese! Amazing right!? Chase had a lot of fun talking to our servers. They also had things that they have in Brasil. I bought two $20 gift cards for $18.99 off of citydeals.com. It was great! No pictures! Sorry!

We had a great weekend and it was full of love and things that we don't normally do. Here's to remembering our wonderful day!

Motorcycle Ride - Around Utah Lake

One of the things Chase loves (and I do too) is going for a nice motorcycle ride. He has been wanting to ride around Utah Lake for a while now, and he finally convinced me to go. Seeing as I'm out of school and out of a job. It was really fun, we stopped by my parents and picked cherries. YUM! Chase gave Carolin a ride, and then went up to visit Chase's parents and had Ice cream. YUM! All in all it was a good long Saturday. You wouldn't think that you would get burnt out from taking a ride, but sure enough we were both beat and sun burnt!
Here's some pictures when we stopped in Eureka. 
This was a cool building we ran into and Chase really liked it the last time he drove around the lake with his buddies.
Me brushing my hair. It gets so knotty. 


After my hair was brushed.
Hot Chase! :) 

We had a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again... Maybe one of these day's we'll be brave enough to ride up to Jackson Hole. It's been one of Chase's dreams since we got the bike.

Or maybe one day I'll get a Honda Rebel and go riding with him!

Girls Camp

Yup, I was at girls camp this past week because the ward needed a nurse, and the nurse they had scheduled had to work. I know I'm not a nurse, but I have first aid background. During the whole camp all the girls including the leaders kept asking me if I was a nurse. It was quite frustrating, but I was totally nice about it. I only have a few pictures, from camp. I went on the zipline, and it was super fun. I was able to take a few other pictures from hiking up past silver lake in American Fork Canyon. I thought it was a pretty hard hike so did all of the girls. Only one girl from our ward got hurt, she slipped and fell on the way down from the hike. The nurse from the other ward took care of her. She definitely had a swollen cheek around her eye, and she didn't listen to me when I told her to ice it. I would like to say I had a good time, but I'll be honest, I really didn't. I did miss Chase, and he definitely missed me.





Cool waterfall on the hike
