Finally! Some Love From Thailand...

Haven't heard much from the honeymooners since the wedding but from the looks of this pic, I'm sure they are having a blast cruising around Thailand the last couple of weeks!

The end of an era, the beginning of a new life…

Kelly and Mark sealed the deal with a gorgeous wedding that took place on a sunny day in Zion overlooking the marvelous scenery that surrounds and makes up the Zion Ponderosa Ranch. She was stunning; he was handsome with a twist of sass (of course—it is Mark I’m talking about)!

In front of friends and family they had a short and sweet ceremony. Well, it probably could have been even a bit shorter if the bumbling bishop (sporting a toothpaste stain on his mouth, no less) wasn’t quite so long winded, but I digress. Anyway, Mark and Kel took their vows and made their love official and lawful. WooHoo! It’s about time!!!

The weekend was a great way to send off our friends. We got to spend time preparing for the big day, having bridal parties, talking, laughing, and a little bit of crying. It is a bitter sweet feeling when all is said and done. Kelly and Mark could seriously not be more perfect for each other. Although I am forever grateful and happy that my dear friend found the love of her life and I know they will be happy, the geographic distance will be SO hard for me and it makes me, selfishly, very sad. I guess on the bright side—their residing location will be an amazing trip to save up for and I can look forward to visiting!

So, off to Thailand are Mr. & Mrs. Neeleman and Brazil will be their home after that.
Congratulations my sweet friends, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

Kel's Bachelorette Party

What a Weekend!!!

The big day for Kelly and Mark is rapidly approaching. This last weekend we gathered the troops and headed up to Midway to stay at Zermatt Resort. The first night there we were able to even get most of our friends that are mom's to come and join us. We had a blast. We made all sorts of tacos, nachos and treats galore. We sat around talking, catching up and having fun. We even got a spur of the moment performance by Becca to her infamous "Like a Prayer" with a crazy costume she threw together for our utter enjoyment.

Saturday we went into Park City and ate dinner at Grappa. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmm they spoiled us with delicious tasters, app's, main dishes and more. We had a slight scare with a near choking incident but luckily a kind onlooker helped us out with a swift, hammer-like pound on the back to save the day. After that we headed down Main Street and finished the night off at a club with an 80's band playing. It was a riot.

Of course no trip is complete without a bit of drama, lots of laughs and memories that will last a lifetime.

Even though we are all getting sad thinking about Kel's soon departure from our home country in the U.S.of.A. We couldn't be happier for her and what lies in the future.

New Year, New Adventures...

Kel and I went to Napa to ring in the new year with our friends Justine and Scott. It was so great to hang with Justine, to go new places, meet new people and to be somewhere with NO SNOW!!!
On NYE we went to a fancy pants party called the Glitter Ball. It was very interesting, but a lot of fun.
Driving around and taking in all of the beautiful surroundings and visiting various vineyards was a blast.

...Coming up...

The next exciting adventure is the "official" news of Kelly and Mark getting engaged! So in the next few months there will be plenty of fun, stressing, excitement and planning going on. And after the love birds seal the deal...It's off to live in Brazil for the next few years. Crazy, crazy!

Directly following my office co-ed softball game one night, I had everyone gather at a fire pit for a little team building exercise. In order to flush out any leftover negativity from the Jazz season, I thought it appropriate to rid myself of the Boozer-supporting jersey that has been a constant reminder of the let down, dread, and anger from a toxic player infecting my team……….
