Lady Antebllum concert...i forget if i already wrote about this...
24 hr trip to surprise Bee Larson and Kiel P for their engagement :)
Chocolate Show with DG at Orson & Gygi.

The greatest job ever!
I worked all weekend at a Chocolate Show hosted by Orson & Gygi, and got to serve fresh cookies out of a display kitchen. The workers there were so nice to us!! We got free Harry Potter tickets :) and got to have a nice double date! And they made us speciality coffee drinks every morning from the built in coffee maker in my kitchen!! You will be sick of reading this blog if I went on about how amazing this place just check it out yourselves :) ...Every girls dream.

Long, long drive to California...and we didn't kill each other :)

No Pressure to get engaged as the only dating couple at the party...HINT HINT ;)
We are so happy for you two and loved being able to share this special moment with you both!!

Water show in Vegas and Coffee break on the way back to Utah! The weather on the drive back started to feel more normal as we were hit with fog and snow. We had stayed a night at my brothers that weekend and woke up in the morning with near heat exhaustion from the great difference. Haha...we had definitely left my house with two pairs of mittens on, and drove away from California with a tank top and the windows down. I LOVE SEASONS

What does it say?!
At the time this was a good idea. We got off the freeway and couldn't read the sign...but I guess with a camera flash anything is possible.

Loved it!!

Natalie and her friend Rachel and I went to the concert together and had sooo much fun! Their friend Kimball met us there and we all just laughed and sang and had the most exhilarating time. This kid next to me (about my age) turned to me during one of the songs and screamed with excitment, "This is my favorite song!!!" and so of course i turned to him as well and just screamed with excitement for him!! :) hahaha...he made me laugh so hard, I couldn't resist going along with him!

Life since...a blizzard is coming tomorrow. This is definitely a year of new things for me. Graduation, Africa, Utah, New Home, Snow, Blizzards...what next?

Happy Thanksgiving!!! I'll be home for Christmas!

Soooo Coold

It was 36 degrees today....goodbye beautiful fall. We had a great weekend, and perfect fall weather before the big storm on Monday. Mom and dad (Frenken and Franks) joined Zack and I for a pre-Thanksgiving and some Utah exploration! We took the tram up to the top of Snowbird mountain (11,000 feet)...where it was something like 30 degrees with 35 mph winds. Light sweater weather of course. It was so much fun to stiffly run around on the top of the mountain, as all of our joints were quickly frozen, and see the beautiful city and valley below covered in snow :) Haha, I got off the tram and mom and I were instantly hit with tons of wind, and I felt a Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation moment coming fingers had already turned purple and lost feeling. We all had a great time together, joking and laughing, sharing stories, going to church, and being destroyed by the Franks in Yahtzee... :( I say it was beginners luck!

At the top of Snowbird Mountain :)

Monday = 1st snow at my new house!! Interior pictures soon to come!

Emigration Canyon...on my way to Zack's house. Don't worry mom...I was driving really slow.

Zack's Mansion of a house :)

Zack and I concluded the family weekend with a celebration of our 2 years together!! :) ...Let's just say I'm a blessed and loved girl.

**Lady Antebellum pics with Natalie and Rachel plus my new home will be up shortly!
Miss you all.
