“Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”-William Saroyan


Whoa, excuse my absence please. But you are probably used to it. Arizona has been treating me well, I'm still not quite used to it, and I still have my bouts of wanting to move back to Salt Lake, but I'm trying to suppress those feelings. About a month ago though, I took a very last minute trip to visit a friend of mine in San Fransisco. And when I say last minute I mean he texted me at 1030 Friday night seeing when I was going to come and visit him, and I proposed that I get on the very next flight at 530am on Saturday. So I did. It was so much fun too. We saw two baseball games, went to Fisherman's Wharf and Pier 39, got delicous ice cream at Ghiradelli's Square, saw the Painted Ladies (maybe even played the Full House theme song a few times as well), and we got to celebrate the 75th birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge with hundreds of other people. Over all a pretty awesome trip, and I seriously can't wait to go back again. Well, here's picture time! Don't act like you didn't know it was coming.

We waited for an hour and a half for Mama's, and it was oh so worth it (see the huge line behind us? Can't believe we were at the end of that..)

Fisherman's Wharf

                                The seals at Pier 39. We watched them for a good 45 minutes

It's the Ladies!

Well guys, I finally moved out of a 45 mile radius of my parent's house. I'm in Phoenix, Arizona now! Guess it's time for me to come up with a clever little blog name again. Hopefully moving down here will give me some interesting stuff to actually blog about now.
But I drove down here last week. Started out the trip by myself and met up with my sister in Vegas in which she finished the ride with me. While by myself, I might have sung myself hoarse and possibly learned all the words to Bohemian Rhapsody. Definitely tried to be as cute as these kids but I'm not sure that's possible.
Shae and I did spend the night in Vegas, and had the time of our lives. Haha pictures below. We also might have stopped by the Hoover Dam along the way as well. Oh and funny story about that one. It was soo windy and I was wearing a short dress. Not a good combination. If I wanted to stop I had to tuck my dress between my legs, then when I wanted to walk again I have to verrry quickly grab my skirt and hold it down. But quite a few times my dress decided to recreate the Marilyn Monroe. I had a security guard come and tell me there was no dam flashing allowed. Ha clever little guy. But let's just saw that my cute little underwear was seen by more than just me that day. hahaha
bye mom!
Got our bling-bling on

It was a wee bit windy.

We mustache you a question, but we're shaving it for later.


I have missed listening to these girls play at Velour. So happy they're making music again


Just saw them live. I am so so in love. It's almost ridiculous.


Friday morning I got a text from my dad "Cali? Flight's @245" um.. okay! That is definitely one of the perks of having a flight attendant for a mom. But the not so great part, as soon as we landed my mom got called out on a two day trip. So it ended up just being my dad and I for the weekend, which was still great.
Oh beach sunsets, I live for you.

fuzzy pink beach cruiser? yes please.


Today was a beautiful day. I went on a run up City Creek Trip, and geez, it was so pretty! And I actually did run. I was quite proud of myself. It miiight have been just the downhill part that I ran, but hey, better than nothing. I will also admit that I listened to "I Like How It Feels" by mister Enrique Iglesias, on repeat as a sort of motivator, and it actually worked. Yay stupid tricks. But now it's picture time

 I then graced the new Harmon's with my presence, and I don't think I've ever been so impressed by a grocery store.
I mean come on, would you look at that ice cream selection?!
