Busy Bees

So I know my last few posts have all been about Salty Blondes (mine and Paige's new blog), but that's because I feel like that's ALL I've been doing the last few weeks. Working on this blog. 

We now have FIVE posts up, which consist of two recipes, and three outfits. Plus we have an ABOUT page, and a RECIPE page where all of our recipes will be available.

Exciting things are happening with this blog and we are having so much fun with it! I won't lie though, it's time consuming and tiring working all day, then blogging all night while somehow managing to squeeze in time to do photo shoots AND spend time with my husband. Daniel has been taking all of our pictures, so at least he gets to see me be a wannabe model.

We're making it work though. Daniel sees how much I'm loving this new blogging adventure and so he fully supports it.

That's all for now.

Happy Halloween!

Salty Blondes

Paige and I are loving our new blogging venture! 

We've really enjoyed creating the first few posts together. And we've gotten a great response from our followers...especially on Instagram!   

We've even had someone email us about doing a collaboration already - it's a girl who started a graphic tee company. She offered to give us some of her tees if we'd rep them in one of our blog posts! Nothing huge, but it got us excited!!

Exciting stuff happening on Salty Blondes :)

Be sure to check it out if you haven't already.

October tradition

Daniel and I really haven't developed very many of our own traditions since we've been married. I'm sure we'll have some once we have children, but for now we are usually visting our families during holidays, so the only traditions we have are the ones we've grown up doing with them!

However, the Alpine Loop drive every October is one tradition that we started the first year we moved to Utah, and have done it every year after! This was our FIFTH year. The fall colors up in the mountains are just SO gorgeous. If you live in Utah and haven't driven the Alpine Loop...GO NOW BEFORE THE LEAVES ARE GONE. 

 (LOL Daniel's stance kills me ^^^ {he's really into it apparently})

This here is an Aspen...you can tell it's an Aspen because of the way it is.
(Please tell me you've seen that YouTube video. So ridiculously stupid)


Once again we had no one with us to take our pictures, so we used a self timer. I'm not in love with these pictures, but I'm happy to have them to look back on each year.
Thanks Utah for providing me with at least one season I enjoy living here for.

A week long break plus exciting news!

Last week Daniel and I were fortunate enough to be able to take an entire WEEK off work and head down to San Diego. Don't ask how we convinced our bosses to let us take a random week off when summer's over, and it's not even a holiday or anything. We got lucky.

My brothers are juniors right now, and Daniel's brother is a SENIOR and his dad is the varsity football coach at the high school. So we were dying to head down and catch a couple of their football games. PLUS my brother Rhett got to start as the varsity quarterback for the first time the day we got there :) And to top it all off, he was also voted Junior Homecoming Prince, and Dan's brother won Senior KING! It was the perfect week to go down. 
^^^they are so handsome!^^^

We also got to spend a lot of time with my cute niece and nephew (close enough) who we are OBSESSED with! We missed them so much! Dan and Rio are best buds and Summie is the sweetest girl in the world.

 (LOL^^^)

Dan and I took Rio to the beach one day, just the 3 of us! We made sand castles, Daniel dug Rio a huge hole to play in, and after, we got ice cream. Best day ever!



 My cousin Beau also plays football for the U of Hawaii and they just so happened to be playing SDSU in San Diego the week we were there, so we got to see him as well.
 

Aaaaaand we got to see my adorable, handsome, studly brothers off to homecoming! I wish I had better pictures, but I was on camera duty so I here are pictures of pictures ;) I loaded them all onto my parents computer and then deleted them off my memory card :-/



They were looking wayy fresh.


NOW HERE'S FOR THE EXCITING NEWS

Paige and I started a style blog! 

Head over to SaltyBlondes.com to check it out and follow us on Instagram @salty_blondes :)

Happy Monday!

FALL

You know how everyone just loooooooves fall?

Well fall means winter is just around the corner. And winter in Utah means depression. 

So yes, I love the pretty fall colors, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the fact that fall means Christmas is getting closer, but I'm not one of those girls who just loooooooves fall. I will admit that I was excited to pull all of my boots out though ;)

NONETHELESS, I did give our home a little bit of fall spirit.









I even got a little crafty and made a fun Halloween banner
