Its the Start of Summer!

I know that the first day of Summer is really June 21st, but doesn't it feel like Memorial Day is the unofficial start? To start my Memorial Weekend, I went to see Sex and the City 2 with Sonia on Friday night. It was good, not as good as the first or the series, but good. There were definitely some hilarious lines. Saturday Shane and I went to a BBQ with my family for my cousins birthday. While we were there, Shane and my cousin Rusty were talking about Wendover....we all ended up taking a spur of the moment trip out there. We stayed overnight and came home on Sunday. I was supposed to go to Bridal Shower that day, but got sick on the way home from Wendover and was not feeling well enough to go. Monday my mom suggested that we go to the Park City Outlets. We went up there and walked around for awhile, buying a couple of shirts and just looking around. While we were at lunch, I jokingly texted Shane about a purse I saw at Coach. I asked if I found a Coach purse for $85, could I buy it? He responded with sure. After trying to call him, he finally answered and said that he wasn't joking. So back to the store we went. This purse was $358 original retail price, marked down, on clearance for 50% then I got an additional 20% off for their Memorial Day sale. I was stoked!!!!!!! I bought yellow because it is so summer and I need another black or brown purse like I need another hole in my head.

The following Wednesday I got an email about the Grand Opening of the Sephora store at Fashion Place Mall. I had marked my calendar and had been planning on going to the store once it opened. However, when I got the email it said that the first 100 customers in line would get a gift card. The amounts would vary from $10 to the lucky recipient of $500. I got up on Friday and was at the mall around 8am. I was lucky number 84! The picture below was how ridiculous the line was. Not only did it zig zag 5 times here, but then they had to start the line outside the entrance doors to the mall. As we got up to the store, there was an employee handing out the gift cards that had their amount written on them. I GOT $100!!!!!!!! I was stoked! I would have been happy with $10 because I wasn't going there for anything specific, but AWESOME!!!!

This is what I got with my card! I didn't spend all of it because it was super crowded and hot in the store. A Beauty Insider bag (free with my Grand Opening email), a bronzer sampler kit and Pink Sugar perfume.

Since we last spoke...

...I found some more pictures. So here they are!

Alli and I took a goofy picture over Memorial weekend.
I went snowboarding with Alli, Shane and Jessen. Right after this, I fell backwards down the mountain and hit my head REALLY hard!

Shane got his motor rebuilt TWICE and now has his car running and ready for the track.

Buddy cut his paw in our backyard and tracked blood through the house. Isn't his bandage so cute? He acts like he can't do anything with it on.

We dug out part of our lawn and made a bigger driveway. With cement, it looks quite bigger.

I gave a day to get a Disney Day. I volunteered with others from work at Red Butte Gardens.
We cleaned flower pots and transplanted flowers.

Say cheese Jessica!!!!

Life's a Beach card.

Inside says "Those who bring sunshine to the souls of others cannot keep it from themselves."

Griffin came to visit me and Shane. He's such a happy baby!

Alli made a face.

The Tote Gote Club showed up to the Thanksgiving Point Car Show.
It made me want to go to Kanarra for the tote gote.

My Poppys started blooming.

My friend Rachael had her first child, Sophia Elle.

On Shane's birthday, I spent time with my friend Megan's son Collin. His birthday is on May 22nd too! I got him a Spud Lightyear.

I tried to take a picture of myself walking down a hallway in Wendover.
