When I {almost} Cried Over an Ice-Cream Cone

Yep you read that title right. The night I literally got choked up over an ice-cream cone. It was last Friday and like every Friday its DATE NIGHT. (so married couple cliché I know) but Friday night is my favorite night of the week. Because Brayden and I get to go out with NO homework, No work stress, no nothing. Just us.

We decided that Dickies sounded good. (yeah we heard about the iced tea incident. we're over it.) we don't drink that stuff any who. But something that Dickies does have is a killer soft serve ice-cream machine. So while I was ringing up our food Brayden always gets the BBQ sauce and an ice cream cone for me. He brought it to me and said "Here ya go my Legs" and I took it and started eating it right away. And he walked back around the corner to get the napkins, forks, etc...

To my surprise the cashier guy looked me right in the eye with the most genuine smile I have ever gotten from a stranger and said:
 "wow... you really don't see guys do that everyday do ya. That was really sweet of him. What an act of true chivalry. You really got a good one there I can tell."

And I literally got a lump in my throat and about started to weep!

all I could choke out was: "That's why I married him. He's the best."

That awesome stranger swiping my debit card caused me to be over-flooded with feelings of gratefulness for the husband I have. When you've been married for (almost 3 years) you just kind of get used to each other! Stuff becomes routine (not in a bad way) but sometimes you forget to stop and think.... how sweet is Brayden that he went and got me an ice-cream cone while I was waiting for my waffle fries?? That's just SUCH a Brayden thing to do. He is so thoughtful.

I want to thank my Brayden for being honest, hardworking, brave, thoughtful, kind, and patient.

And I hope that everyone can slow down every once in a while and appreciate the loved ones we have. And even be thankful for even the little moments like when your husband hands you an ice-cream cone, because he knows you love them.

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!
