Goodbye for now Utah! Hello Oklahoma!

Now that the holidays are over my little family and I flew back to Oklahoma.  The hubby and I both grew up in Utah so it’s hard to leave those mountains.

Fun fact: even though he grew up in Utah by the mountains, the hubby has never been skiing or snowboarding! He’s actually part Hawaiian so he doesn’t even know how to stand in snow without falling 😉  This picture was right before he proposed to me in snow shoes, on top of a water tower, on top of a mountain….we aren’t always the most traditional.Image

Ok ok, he can stay standing in the snow, but only if he’s holding onto me for support because I’m so big and strong…ha!  Image

Now for a brief holiday recap: We had an amazing time camping out at my parents cabin living  the life of luxury at my parents mountain lodge. There were 10 adults, 8 children (all under the age of 7) and 5 dogs staying in one home for the holidays. Can you say chaos?! I loved it!

(I love this picture because my parents look like they are so overwhelmed by the craziness!) Image

We all got matching pjs with butt flaps which we all looked super sexy in! Throw in a nerf gun war and you have some serious cool-factor happening. (He might kill me for posting this picture).


It was good to be around family after spending 10 days home alone studying for my dental board exam *cringe*  Dental students take their boards during their second year of school and it covers general anatomy, dental anatomy, physiology, embryology, biochemistry, microbiology, and pathology. The thing is a beast! My cat, Moo, thought that I should just quit studying and start napping.  Image

I’ll find out in a couple of weeks if I passed or not.  Send good vibes my way pretty please!

With the stress that the holidays can bring and the stress from my board exam, I was so happy to have this little girl to remind me to enjoy the magic of a little holiday cheer. She makes everything better 🙂


She was really excited to see Santa… and then she cried when she finally got to sit on his lap. Typical.

Now I’ve gotta go watch my Oklahoma Sooners whoop up on Alabama in the Sugar Bowl! <<Knock on wood>>
