Too bad suits and ties are not acceptable...

As a girl who has spent looots of time looking for clothes. (And been to what feels like every store in Utah). I thought it would have been helpful to know where to go, brands to look for, etc. There are about a million girls going on missions now that could benefit from this. Of course, I have not walked around hundreds of miles in my shoes yet, or walked the scorching hot streets or survived a freezing winter. The after review will have to wait 18 months. I did try to avoid anything overly frumpy or that may be mistaken for polygamist clothing. I know, I know...comfort should come first. (The pictures below only show a small sample) But here it goes.

Vacation woohoo!

What a drive. Good thing we are hilarious, and country music never gets old.
A few (boxes) oreos and Nicholas Sparks audio books never hurt a long drive...

That would be our hotel, the only one right on the beach.
Santa Barbara
Cutest little fatties ever. Sea otters are adorable.
Babe. Single and mormon.
Yes, we went on a sunset sailboat ride. Dream come true.
Biking along the beach and all over Ventura. Not to mention, the breaks were broken. And tandems are risky. It was a hoot.
Kite flying on the beach!
California with the best friend....Hotel on the beach in Ventura, biking, beaches, 65 degree weather (with everyone still in scarves and boots), fooood, Six Flags, more food, Santa Barbara, sailboats, more beaches, cute streets, prettiest outside mall ever, long rides, more food, sleeping, swimming, more warm weather, and a drive home in -6 degree weather.   
12 hour drives, 2 hour traffic jams in the middle-of-nowhere Nevada, LA freeways, ridiculous gas prices, and stale food at Taco Time doesn't stop us. 
Pretty much if she was a boy and I was a girl, we would be the cutest couple with the best adventures ever.

Happy December

Temple square trip #1 in December
Snowboarding #2
21 baby!

Argentinine (??) empanadas. Mmm.

Zoo lights. Our dream to finally go to the zoo came true. Even in 28 degree weather.

Snowboarding, 2nd time that week. I felt like a grandma.

Merry Christmas 2012

The little elves cutting cheese.

Christmas tree #3

Traditional Jesus dinner on Christmas Eve. Fish, pita bread, grapes, olives, cheese, hummus, fig newtons, grape juice, couscous.  

Christmas was a success. I wasn't even woken up at 4am this year to open presents. Christmas dinner was pizza. It was a prime day for sleeping. The elves made the delivery for left over gifts on New Years eve. Until next year...
