Janell’s Bachelorette Party

Here are a few pictures from my trip to Arizona two weekends ago for Janell’s Bachelorette Party. It was so warm and fun! We went out in downtown Tempe both nights. The first night we went to La Bocca, and the second night we went out to Caffe Boa. Both were sooo good. Then the second night we got all dressed up and went out dancing. It was really fun. I hate coming back from vacations, especially when it’s so warm and you have to go back to the cold 🙁

Anyway, Janell and Burk’s wedding is April 16! Yay! Love weddings!

This was the first night outside of La Bocca.
The beginning of second night at Cafe Boa. The rest of the night is as follows…

Brittney, Me, and Janell (the Bride to be)

Ten Day “YOU” Challenge – Day 9

Day 9 – Nine Loves
1. Shoes
My theory is that a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes. If I’m having a rough day or week, the thing that always makes me feel better is a new pair of fabulous shoes. Why? Because shoes always fit. You’re always same size in shoes, they never make you feel fat, and they’re usually more for fun that function. I buy shoes to make an outfit. So here’s to shoes.

2. Reading
I love to read. I could spend all night reading a good book and finish it. I wish I had more time! I’m always open to good recommendations too.

3. Vacations/ Trips
Love love love traveling! Even if it’s just for a day or two and it’s only two hours away! I love to go anywhere, and as I’ve said in previous posts, I hope to get to do more of it to many more places in the future. For now I just like to go on vacations whenever I can! Going to New York tomorrow! Woo hoo!

4. My Friends
I don’t think this one needs too much explaining 🙂

5. Shopping
Not sure I need to explain this one too much either. What girl doesn’t love shopping? Retail therapy anyone? It’s fun and it’s a stress reliever. Sometimes I just like to window shop even.

6. Music
I’ve talked about this before too. I’d die without music. I listen to it all day long. I love to sing. I love to sing in the car and blast my music as loud as I want! I love to listen to soft music at night while I fall asleep. I love listening to lyrics. I love Classical music when I’m thinking. I loved playing musical instruments when I was younger and hope to pick it back up when I can have access to a piano again. I love dancing, which goes with music…etc etc. Music is a part of my every day life.

7. Dancing
I love all kinds of dancing. I’ve danced since I was three years old. Mostly ballet, but like I said I love all kinds. I love to go out and dance with my friends, or by myself in my room (yeah I’m a nerd, who cares?). I love to watch dancing tv shows, etc. Kinda a sucker for cheesy dance movies too…Step Up…WHAT UP? haha. Just love it.

8. Summer
Sun. Sand. Beach. Boating. BBQs. Pools. Flip Flops. Dresses. Swim Suits. Popsicles. I could go on forever.

9. Taking Pictures/ Photography
I probably take more pictures than anyone I know. I just love to have the memories and be able to remember everything. It’s just fun to me. I might not be the best photographer ever, but I just like to take pictures. I also just like photography in general. I like seeing what other people have “captured”.

10. My Family
These photos are all from a trip my family took to Alaska two summers ago. My Grandpa and Grandma took our whole family (cousins, aunts, uncles, etc) on a Cruise. It was so fun. I love my family so much. I’m sad I only get to see them a few times a year since they live in Cali. But let me introduce them to you, since I haven’t really done it on here before.

This is my Brother Adam. He turns 22 next week and is working for the San Bernardino County Police Department as an intern. He graduates from UCSB in JUNE and then will hopefully start the Police Academy soon. 🙂

This is Taylor. He just turned 16 and got his driver’s license! Scary! He’s a sophomore in High School, is on Varsity Soccer for the second year, and just made it to State for Speech and Debate for the second year in a row too.

This is my mom 🙂 Most people think we look exactly alike. Everywhere I go I have someone ask me if I’m a Sharp. (her maiden name). My mom is probably one of my best friends since I’ve moved away from home. We definitely still have our moments when we fight, but I talk to her all the time and I’m not sure what I’d do if I couldn’t.

This is us with my Dad. He’s a dentist and the one that has taught me all about my good taste in “older” music haha. He used to quiz me in the car about Led Zeppelin and Stix, etc…while I’m tried to teach him the difference between N’Sync and the Backstreet Boys. I’m not sure that stuck though.

The whole family :

Each day you do the next thing on the list and today is just a picture of me. I just thought I would post a summery one, because I just want it to be warm already!

Trio and Takashi

Just posting some pictures of the past couple weekends.
We went to the downtown Trio for Chelsey’s birthday a few weeks ago.

Happy Birthday Chels!

This weekend I went to Takashi in downtown SLC with my roommates and Jenn to plan out the New York trip we’re going on in a couple weeks. Ah I’m so exicted! However, we had to sit through a 45 year old man with his stomach showing hitting on us, the table next to us blatantly talking about us like we can’t hear them (sorry you just weren’t cute…not to mention you were like 15 years older than us, and two of you were guys…wow), and Jenn getting spilled all over. At least the food was really good. Go there.

Lately

Just thought I’d post some photos from my activities lately.
These are from when we went up to Park City for the last night of the Sundance Film Festival. We went to Harryos and saw Method Man.


Jenn Barich came in from San Francisco for work so we went out in Salt Lake for the night…this is my 90 year old boyfriend who asked me to dance…awesome. lol.

Jake and I took Kale to that new place at Riverwoods that has the Surf Wave and stuff…well this is me trying to teach Kale how to bowl on the little kids bowling lane. I think I was trying to say good job and he was just sitting there staring….he got it later. He was actually really good. It was fun too…I recommend going there.
