July isn't even over and it has been jam packed for us! A lot of working, studying, and time with friends and family. We spent the Fourth of July with our friends, Brandon and Stephanie, and had a little barbeque. I love cooking, and being in the kitchen with friends is the absolute best. We enjoyed a chill evening making dinner and hanging out. We then headed to the fireworks show in Sugarhouse Park. There were so many people there and we walked around the different vendors enjoying the amazing weather. Utah summers at night are the ultimate! We grabbed some giant lemonades and watched the fireworks in the grass. The best kind of evening.

We have actually been able to spend a lot of time with friends and family considering how busy Trevor has been with studying for the bar. His parents have been up here a few times, and we went to dinner with them. I went to dinner and a movie with a girlfriend while our husbands got into all kinds of trouble zip-lining. A friend from college invited me over for dinner at her place and we had a great evening of just chatting on the couch and enjoying her adorable little girl. We have attended several weddings this month, and my little brother and his wife had me over for a scrumptious waffle breakfast last weekend.

Trevor has a big group of friends he grew up with in St. George and they have all stayed close throughout college and getting married. A few weekends ago we all met up for dinner and lets just say, we were spoiled. Stanton and Billie are always the sweetest most generous hosts, and they made the most amazing dinner. We are talking smoked brisket, delicious fall off the bone ribs, and this chicken that was out of this world. I felt like we were at some 5 star barbeque joint or something but they had made everything in their backyard. Nothing better than some barbeque if your asking me! Everyone brought a little something to contribute, and what resulted was an all out feast. Trevor had the brilliant idea to bring some amazing donuts his office had brought in on National Donut Day. I hadn't had any yet but they did not disappoint. It is from a place here called Beyond Glaze. For years my favorite donuts have been from a little shop in the community I grew up in. Nothing has compared... until now! These are just like those donuts from my community but even better because they taste just like them but with crazy toppings!

There have also been so many blogging events going on the last few weeks! I have created a bad habit of putting way too much on my plate and I get burned out. I have really had to start creating a balance in my life and learning how to stay no to things. I have learned that even though I would love to do everything, I just can't. So I had to opt out on a lot of fun, but did commit to attending a Flamingo Fest party and the Bright Nights Event. Both put on by amazing ladies and friends. The best part of blogging has been all the relationships I have made. Sometimes it can be overwhelming the talent all the women I have met have, and when you put them all together in a room there is just much, energy! Both events were really fun, and it was nice to go out and do something different with my friends.

Can I just make a side note about how happy I am Trevor isn't at BYU anymore! The BEARD is back in my life and I have missed it :)
