29 Aug



What an amazing weekend it was. Saturday i put on my prettiest dress and my giant hat and went out on an adventure in the desert with some good friends. We explored abandoned places, got a flat tire, took silly photos, got a bit dehydrated and sunburned and of course got a little target practice in. It was nice to get away for a minute and forget about everything i am obligated to do. sometimes we need little getaways , even if it is just a few hours.

I am excited to announce that the new website will be launching on the first. We hit a couple bumps at first but no one is stopping us now and we are all so very excited. I think this first week with the new indie Ogden team has been fantastic and i cant wait to see what the future holds. From here we can only go up right?

10 Aug



I hope you all enjoyed yesterdays amazing guest post on how to survive the zombie invasion in Ogden Utah. Keep an eye out because this is an ongoing series and next issue will start to cover some in depth tips to help YOU survive.

If you are a friend of mine you have probably heard me squeal with joy at my recent good luck. I not only found a job but i have an interview for another one too. I may just have 2 rad jobs after searching for so long! Determination and a bit of creativity paid off and i can now let out a big old sigh of relief that i am done with my search and i can get back to work. On the downside, i start Thursday which means no wisdom tooth removal for me yet, it is once again pushed back BUT now i can afford to go under! Yay! So i am holding onto my tooth money for dear life and waiting until i have a day off to go yank these babies out!

In other news i am SO SO glad i started writing these posts the night before because Wednesday is jam packed full of meeting and happening and schmoozing and snacks. I will be out and about getting stuff done like a champ while toting around one rambunctious curly haired girl child on my bike. Yeah, life is feeling pretty darn good right now…but I’ll still need that coffee.

Have fun this Wednesday folks and soak up all that awesome because in a blink of an eye summer will be over. Yup you heard it, only 2 more weeks until school starts. Don’t worry, i will still be here to guide you through the back to school blues with tons of fun things to do after your classes. And if your like me and you don’t go to school then heck, summer can last all year long….Kinda.

>Wow was last night AMAZING. I went to the basement to check out “we are the willows” and was blown away.

Stay tuned for my full review later today/tonight! In the meantime check out his tour diary and website for tunes.After the show i headed over to the Sand Trap for some Karaoke with my good pal chelsi, her always entertaining hubby and their lovely friend Jordan who’s voice is Amazing.
