So lately I've been doing my girly stuff.
First girly activity: Phil went on a campout with the scouts
so I got a weekend to do more job hunting and have a dinner/reunion with my dental hygiene class!! I'm so mad - we took pictures, but I don't see them on my camera so I don't know what happened to them! But anyways, it was SO good to see everybody again and catch up on each others' lives! It's still weird not seeing them all the time. It was a good refresher getting some of Summer's stories, talking about babies, trips, and of course work.
I can't wait for the baby/bridal shower in September!

Then my mom and sister and brother surprised us with a last-minute trip to Utah, and we had tons of fun with them too! Lunch at Red Robin=always good!
(that's right, Addison's looking at me)
Aside from the car breaking down on their way home, it was a perfect little vacation, and SO much fun to spend time with Addison, especially in the pool!
Boy does that baby love to swim!

My next girly "activity" was actually really difficult.
Something I haven't done since high school.
I like it, but it's not exactly what I wanted, so I'll try it out for a while and see what happens.

Next girly activity: DATING
Yes, I'm dating again. Phil said he wanted me to plan our Friday night date this week, so I busted out my coupons and got working! First we hit Wallaby's, where I officially decided I DON'T LIKE BLUE CHEESE (don't worry Dad, your steaks are the ONE exception) Gag. Plus we ran into my cousin Lachelle and her husband Nate while we were there! Go figure, Packards. :)
After some grubbin' Phil took me to Barnes and Noble to get a crossword puzzle book (cuz he loves me), and then we hit... dun dun dun...
The QUARRY! I have officially discovered a new life's passion. I LOVE ROCK CLIMBING. Neither of us had ever been before, but...I'm hooked. We got trained, demo'd, and warned, and we obeyed! (this picture is of us testing our hooks and knots before climbing) We took turns climbing and belaying, and I just loved it!
If anyone in Provo wants to go with us, I'm totally game! We hit Sub-Zero ice cream on the way home (Raspberry-Lime with citric acid...WARNING...don't get it!) and called it good! Pretty dang good date, if you ask me! :)

Last girly thing: Wife Duties. I woke up at 6:00am and drove with Phil and his friend Nate to watch them play in an Outdoor Volleyball tournament in Park City. ALL DAY.
They placed second in their division, and it was so fun to be that "Supportive Wife" cheering on Phil (plus I got to work on my crosswords book that I just got). By the time we got back, it was 6:00, and I was SO SUNBURNED on my legs! I wore long-sleeves, so my arms were okay, but holy smokes. It's hard to walk.
Or stand. Or sit. Or lay down.

But I love my baby! And I love being a girl!


  1. OH MY GOODNESS!!! You cut your hair. I. Love. It!!! Cute post. Sorry to hear about your legs. Landon and I have mentioned how it would be fun to go rock climbing! Maybe we should go sometime, if it isn't too expensive :)! Love you. Hope to see you soon!

  2. It's a shock to see your hair that short! But on a positive note... those date pics with it all curly, its WAY cute! Good job! On to the next adventure...

  3. Your hair is SUPER cute! :) I'm sure you're one of those girls that could have ANY hair style and look adorable! ;)

    Yay for Date Night! Nate likes Rock Climbing and I've never been. I'm thinking sooner than later we need to just go. He has a gift certificate to The Quarry even. :P Thanks for the inspiration! ;)

  4. Oooooh! Rock climbing. That looks way fun! Still love your hair too--long or short it's beautiful.
