OneRepublic Concert

Saturday evening Austin and I headed to Park City for the OneRepublic concert. We are avid fans of the band and own all of their CD's.  They are incredible. I was ecstatic when Austin surprised me with tickets on our anniversary in June. He's still keeps me on my toes 5 years later.

Honestly, hands down one of my all time favorite date night with my sweet husband. We kicked it off with dinner at Reyes Adobe.  It was delicious authentic Mexican food, so yummy I'd drive there right now just for a bite. (Did I mention they had a huge gluten free selection too?)  After that, we hopped on the Park City lift and relaxed taking in the view and smell. (It had just rained so the pine trees smelt glorious.)

After our relaxing lift ride, we went to the concert and soaked in the music at the Deer Valley Amphitheater. Good entertainment, from both the musician and crowd, and great company. Can't wait to go again next year!

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles is all I hear from this girl. She loves them. She wants them in her bath, in the air floating around her at all times and to be blowing them by herself like a big girl. Its the first thing she says to me in the morning.  Now that I am working I love these little moments with her. These times just feel our hearts with so much happiness. Here's to more bubble-like memories with this adorable little girl.

4th of July Weekend

This year, we took off to the family cabin up in Oakley for the 4th of July Week/Weekend. It was such a nice relaxing time. We slept, ate good food, shopped til we dropped, fished, hiked, jogged, played at the river and just hung out with Austin's side of the family. It was a blast. By the best 4th of July in a long time.

To top it all off, we went to the Oakley Rodeo on the 4th, which Roo loved! She also got to see her first firework show. Saying that she loved them, is a complete understatement. She was in complete awe the entire time. ( Of course I forgot my camera at the cabin so I don't have any decent pictures of this to share, sorry!)So here are a couple of shots of our getaway when I did have my camera on me. Enjoy!

It was nice a hummid the first day up there. Every night it was thunder and lightening. We loved every second of it!

According to Roo, this spot has the only dirt in the entire world. Ha, I love toddlers!

I was just like her when I was little...naked at every chance possible. 
Cute Brooke braving the river. It was FREEZING!
Brooke and I about to head down the river. Then we saw a snake and I chickened out! I am absolutely terrified of snakes,
Watching Dylan and Grandpa fishing. Keep word..watching.

18 Months

I know I always say this, but its hard to believe Aubri is already 18 months old. Some days I feel like she's older than that. She is growing in every aspect of her life. She dances, runs, walks, spins and knows all her body parts. She is a babbling baboon that I can finally understand. Just the other day, she said bottle, and then went to the fridge and said milk. Its so cute. She's a little parrot. Says everything  we teach her, its adorable. My favorite word she says is bellybutton. She only whisper it. Melts my heart!

This phase is just so much fun. Aubri truly is such a well behaved little girl. She is obedient, listens and understands what we say to her and has a funny sense of humor.  She loves going swimming, going on walks, playing with her Daddy and aunties. Its easy to say that this girl has stolen everyone's heart!

Ander-fun Family Pictures

Oh my goodness, I have been absolutely horrible with updating our family blog lately. We moved, and then moved again, and I started working for the most amazing dental office out there. (More on that later.) But anyways, in the middle of all of that, Austin's sister Kate left on her mission to South Carolina. Which we are all thrilled for. But because she left on her mission, and Dylan will be leaving on his mission next summer, it will nearly be 3 years before the entire family is back together again. You know what that means right? Family pictures! They turned out fantastic. If you are looking for an incredible photographer, I have just the one for you. Sweet Lilacs Photography. Nikki is the greatest and has an amazing eye for photography.

So here is a glimpse at our family pictures we took with the Anderson side of the family:


This is mine and Austin's favorite. Its his family's front porch. Isn't it just perfect?

The biggest smile she would let us capture on camera. Love her!

Need A Workout?

I have been toying with the idea of doing cross fit for a while now.  I absolutely love working out. Especially strength training. Cardio, not so much. Before I had Aubri, I was hands down in the best shape of my life, thanks to my fantastic trainer, Dan.  I loved it and I was dedicated. Well, its been two years since I have seriously hit the gym hard. And I need to get back in shape desperately. Not just to look good, but to feel good! I love all that feel good energy, confidence and happiness that comes along with working out. 

Today, I finally took the plunge and tried crossfit. I loved it! While yes, I got my butt kicked. (Shows you how out of shape I am. Honestly though, its insane how hard it is to get back in shape after a baby!) I completed it 3 times. I cannot tell you how happy I was when I heard that timer go off. I literally laid on the ground for a good ten minutes after. Then I finally pulled my jello body to the bathroom to get ready for the day.

If you know of any other great crossfit workouts, send them my way!

Chicks & Bunny

We had Easter pictures of Aubri taken a few weeks ago, and they turned out darling! She loved on the bunny, but wanted nothing to do with the chicks because they just talked they whole time.  I wish we would have gotten more pictures of her smiling, but she wasn't feeling the best and wanted to play outside, rather than sit inside posing for pictures.


Its apparent that Aubri thinks smiling in pictures is a sign of weakness or something. She will be all smiles and giggles until she is expected to smile on demand. 
We are so excited for Easter coming up in two weeks. I've been buying things for her basket, as well as Austin's. Its hard not to buy her everything. Especially clothes, because she gets to excited and loves them so much! The necklace she is wearing in the pictures was a huge hit! She loves to wear and usually wears it from the moment she wakes up, to the second she goes to sleep. She is exactly how I was when I was little, just a little more overboard and not so tacky. lol
