Oh, oops, we don’t really say ya’ll out here in LA…but we still have fairs! This was actually my very first time to the LA Fair. I’ve been to several in Utah and Idaho, but this was my first fair in California. Next on my list… the Orange County Fair!
Get ready for way too many pictures of ferris wheels, with plenty of sun flare (#sunflaredontcare).
My junior high buddy/new neighbor Brooke & I spent last Saturday at the LA County Fair (yes, it’s already over… I really need to post about these events before they’re already gone). We ate corn dogs (not the foot long ones–those were HUGE!) and AMAZING root beer floats, & didn’t eat the fried avocados or krispy creme doughnut sloppy joe (Brooke did–and said it tasted exactly like it sounded, not good!).
Look Utah, we have ski lifts too! ^^
^^ more ski lifts ^^
I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more fun adventures of Brooke & I, now that we’re practically neighbors (we live in neighboring cities, anyway!).
Note to self: don’t get a nice manicure right before you move!Above: we stopped at the temple in St. George, Ut
Firstly, it is hard to post consistently on here when I am constantly juggling family reunions, packing boxes, moving vans, loading furniture, 3 am road trips, and weddings. On top of it, we don’t yet have wi-fi at our new place in LA so….this post is brought to you by Starbucks! Been sipping on their Tazo iced herbal tea & bumming off their internet since noon today.
A silly thing I did was get a manicure about a week before packing & cleaning & driving & un-packing & more cleaning. I just couldn’t turn down a girls trip to the nail salon with the fam. I decided to go with a non-summer maroon shade and my niece chose a very summer-appropriate sparkly-purple. Still no chips (I got the shellac/gel polish)!
I’m hitting the road again, for my older brother’s wedding in Provo. I promise to post again on Monday, about the sad/exciting move from SF–>LA. You can always follow me on instagram!
In this desert city we were fighting 110 degree heat, so even getting up with the sun only bought us a few hours to climb! Before we knew it, the scorching sun was heating up that gorgeous rusty-red rock. We took my sister-in-law (and her hubby) rock climbing in southern Utah, before heading back to SF. Since it was their first time climbing outside, I did a lot of this^^ (belaying). My hands got so dirty from our rope! Almost time for a new one. That red rock is so delicious, you really cannot call yourself a climber until you’ve climbed on it. Megan is tiny and strong (this mama of 3 does Crossfit several times a week!), so she pretty much muscled her way up there like she’d been a climber her whole life. It took me a whole year before I climbed like that! I really need to hit the weights again…. ever since Taiwan & Hong Kong, I’ve gotten completely out of my routine. I’ve been so busy with weddings and guests and vacay’s and packing that it still feels like I JUST BARELY got home from Asia!! I honestly don’t know where the months have gone. Hopefully after the move, I’ll be back in sync with lifting & working out. Anyway…back to packing!
