Bear Lake {Fall Edition}

oh my heart.
I thought I loved bear lake in the summer. Turns out Bear Lake does an outfit change mid September and really shows you what fall is supposed to look like. It was a fashion show of yellows, reds, greens, purples, you name it. I was in complete aw. All I could say was "this is so pretty" and I don't know if it really was THAT pretty or if I just need to go outside more... (curse you Netflix!!) It was such a nice weekend up at Bear Lake with my Brayd. We went on hikes and went out to dinner. That's pretty much all we did and it felt like one of the best weekends!

The mountain air really does something to your soul. It didn't do anything to mine because I was stressed out trying to figure out how to get my camera to work. (its new.. first time I've used it outside of my apartment!) but it really was so beautiful. I got a few good shots but being the newbie that I am never having used a DSRL on manual there was lots of "over-exposed" and "blurry" pictures I had to sort through to get some good ones. But even some of those "oops" pictures are my favorite.
It was one of those weekends that remind you that life is good even when it sends you cow poop to step in. (which I actually did step in... wearing sandals...)

Here are some of the shots I have deemed acceptable to be on the blog! (photo professionals and mom... don't judge ;) I'm still learning!!)
 my adventure partner.
 Brayden decided that I needed a wildflower bouquet. He kept saying "this is right up your alley isn't it Legs?" haha and that's why I married him :)
 and that is the final product. so heavenly... melted my heart.
these cows were just walking in the road. and when they heard the car coming they all lined up like this to let us pass... haha it was so funny. and all of them had pretty epic snot strings for some reason...ew.
i mean have you ever seen such colors??!! If that doesn't make you crave over sized sweaters, pumpkin spice cookies, and the color yellow I don't know what will. 
.::such a great adventure::.

The Happiest Place {Round 2}

If you are new here. I'll just say....DISNEYLAND IS MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH. That place is magical. Its the definition of happiness and joy... and all things good. Last year my in laws surprised us on Christmas saying we were going to Disneyland. Seemed like it was forever away! But it was so worth the wait.

If you follow me on instagram you probably saw all my pics I posted. {Disney spam heck yeah} The video will show you just a small insight to why I love this place so much. So many old memories and so many new ones being made everytime we go!
(I used to be terrified of this thing when I was little. Called it the "scary ah" and so now everytime I pass it I send a pic like this to my mom. glad I overcame that fear... for the most part. hahaha)
 Yep that was.... OUR BEDROOM FOR THE WEEK?! I kid you not I got a little choked up when I walked in. And then I just started unpacking my stuff immediately. No one else could have that room ;) seriously amazing.
oh and to top off an amazing week? I got to go on a double date all of Friday with my best friend Charlotte. I love her so much. Such an amazing day. And her date bought me a churro! (trying to win my approval i'm suuuure) but it did the trick. Best way to end our Disneyland adventures.

And all the feelings and memories that words just cant express right.
Here is the video of the week:
Thank you so much Kelly and Annette. Everyone had so much fun and we will cherish these memories forever. Love you both!

Oh man. My lack of blogging lately has really made me sad! But I can explain. 2 weeks ago sick!! (bleh) 1 Week ago in DISNEYLAND!! I know your asking (again really?!) yes again :) and I'll explain later when I get that post done (pics and video coming soooon so excite! stay tuned)

But right now I just want to say HOLY MOLY BUYING A NEW CAMERA IS SCARY! I bought it from a girl I worship on instagram. And I'm so nervous and excited to learn how to use it! I have been filming around my living room... and that's pretty much it. But I'm already loooving this new thing. Who knew getting a nicer camera would make such a difference! I've already learned so much only having it a few days!

Its a new adventure I'm ready to take on. Ready to add my own pictures and videos to this camera.
i'm ready to {SHOOT} some people.
and annoy everyone by constantly having a camera in their face
cause I think i'll take this thing with me everywhere.
