Tristan & Ellen's Day of Fun

I was finalllyyy in town this weekend after being gone so much this summer, and Ellen completely booked my schedule for the whole weekend!

We headed downtown with some friends Friday night

Saturday morning, we slept in a little bit, got ready, and then went to Red Mango breakfast that we've been waiting for forever! We got some smoothies with fro-yo, strawberries, bananas, granola, and honey and they were great!

Then we went down to the haymarket, got some coffee, and spent the rest of the morning walking around the Farmer's Market.

After that we went to the mall and shopped a little bit, ran some errands, picked up some lunch...

And spent the rest of the afternoon laying by the pool! It was an awesome, relaxing weekend!

  • Being addicted to watching Weeds, waffles, listening to City and Colour, eating chocolate covered peanuts, and Pinterest!
  • Wanting to start a new routine. I'm living my life like Groundhog's Day and I need something new!
  • Loving that I finally get to stay in town this weekend and hang out with my friends. It's the one weekend this whole summer that I haven't had something to do. I love being busy, but I really love the feeling of having nothing planned!
  • Looking for book recommendations. Now that I finally finished Harry Potter, I need some new ideas for great books/series to read. Let me know if you have any!
  • Celebrating a wedding with great friends is a really awesome way to spend a weekend. And I still feel like I'm recovering!
  • Shopping for some things for my trip next week, and noticed that every store has fall stuff out! FALL! Seriously, fastest summer ever. But, I'm so proud of myself, I got in and out of those stores buying only the things I needed...(except for a new purse) even though I really wanted to buy lots more stuff!

Join in on Thursday(ING)!

Wedding Fun

Two of my friends got married this weekend! It was such a fun wedding and great to see so many awesome people! Here's some random pictures from the night!


There's something about this this little boy in a backwards hat with those blue eyes that makes my heart happy! He's all boy, and so very naughty...but just sooo adorable and sweet!

Yellowstone 2011

My computer has really been acting up lately, but I finally got around to blogging pictures from my vacation. Me and my parents went to Yellowstone for the weekend and on the way we stopped at my Grandpa's grave, Chimney Rock, and Carhenge. We spent a full day in Yellowstone and on our 15 hour drive home, we stopped by Mount Rushmore. We saw tons of awesome stuff including lots of wildlife like bears, wolves, bald eagles, elk, and buffalo and the views were amazing! We ate a lot of good food and ice cream and definitely made a stop at the candy store where we filled a whole bag with tons of different kinds and ate it all on our drive home! :)

I love getting to spend that time with my parents and going on trips like this. In a little over a week, me and my parents, along with our entire family will be going on our yearly trip to my favorite place ever! And a few days after that I'm heading to Chicago with one of my best friends! Keep an eye out for those posts soon!

  • Hating that I'm already back from vacation and back to working everyday! But very soon I will be in my favorite place ever, and a week after that in Chicago...so I guess I can deal with a few weeks of work!
  • Wanting to go on a big-time shopping spree. I want new fall clothes...flats, cardigans, jeans, scarves! I want to come out of stores with my arms full of bags! That's so unrealistic, and will never happen. But I can dream right?
  • Recovering from sleep deprivation and not being able to catch up! Sleeping for an entire day is sounding like a great idea!
  • Seeing Journey in concert (outside) on Monday night. It was in the middle of our great Nebraska heat wave and even though it was a night show, it was scorching hot! We were all so sweaty, and couldn't help complaining every 30 seconds, but it was a great show!
  • Dealing with FIVE kids this week! Four of them are under age 6 and one is 4 months old...let's just say I'm sooo thankful that this week is almost over. It has definitely been exhausting!
  • Spending this weekend celebrating two friends getting married! It's going to be a fun wedding!

Heule Family

After trying forever to make a day work to take my sister's family pictures, we finally figured something out! It was probably the hottest day of the year so far, all of us were sweating like crazy, and these kids still had smiles on their faces at the end of the day! I hope you guys love them!
