Life is great! Yesterday I was researching film noir for a project I am working on and I ended up watching the whole film D.O.A. on youtube. It was terrific, I was on my toes trying to get to the bottom of the mystery. So anyway that is what this clip is from. And why you may ask am I posting this scene on this night? Well tonight I went to Jessica's Luau performance it was awesome! It was the best bootie shaking and stomping I have seen in along time. After watching we had ants in our pants and we needed to dance. The Parlor Hawks were jamming in their garage so we stopped by and danced to our hearts content... 

Picture five girls,  in a cinderblock garage, low light, long shadows, the chill of spring and swanky jazz live in the room next door - idyllic!

Family Photos

Monday night is FHE night, right? So here are a handful of pictures from past adventures with the family some are funny and some are sweet...

1. The Mumms are singers... ha ha 2. These guys were inseparable this summer 3. REAL family pictures, mostly look at Jesse's face trying to tame the wild Zaders! 4. Caitlin loves senior pictures 5. Shae hurry! Katie is READY to go mtn biking! 6. The bag pedlar (Cassie made all these bags to sell they fit like a back-pack but look like a grocery sack!) 7. Cheese 8. I think I tripped...over Makena? 
DISCLAIMER: sorry I know I really am not that funny but they needed captions so I thought I would try :)

Also! My parents whom I love so much are on their way to Adam-Ondi-Ahmen to serve a full time mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints they embarked on this adventure this morning and they are going to do Amazing! I love you Mom and Dad! Thanks for the marvelous family and thanks for being my best friends! I am so grateful I got to spend so much time with you the past few months!

Kung Fu Fighter

This is Emily she loves Kung Fu Panda, the color purple and grilled cheeses. Also if you didn't notice we look alike not only that we pretend alike, we both like spandex we are both best friends with our moms and play with them as much as we play with friends and we both are happiest when our clothes sorta don't match!

Happy Birthday Emily! :)

101 things to do before you graduate...

"There are moments in life that make us say, "Aha!" those are the Eureka-type experiences that define who we are. They change us. They inspire us to do other things."

I found this little book while treating myself with a stroll through DI, one of my all time favorite places. I just liked #87 maybe mostly because it used the word epiphany but also I have had so many of these moments in the past while where my Heavenly Father took the time to teach me and where I have realized the things that I really want to work towards. I hope these moments will continue to change and inspire me!

After 7,612 days (minus apartments and driggs for a winter) of living in rexburg with the same address I am moving to...

that is right, Utah! I know it is not really all that far but I am thrilled! I do love rexburg though and i know there is so much I am going to miss such as: Heidi, all my family here, sled shed, my parents garden, my parents, running through the dry farms, evening mountain bike rides, horchata and a california from ramirez, snow cones all summer long, g's dairy, the river bottoms, Joy and all my friends, and probably a lot of other things. I am though extremely thrilled and eager for this adventure, o and to start off my venture I landed an awesome job working for the phenomenal photographer Justin Hackworth!
