Last Weekend

 Last weekend my mom had a margarita party and its taken me 5 full days to post about it!

 Peter from NZ has been visiting for the last 2 weeks.

 Sunday we went swimming at my mom's and then later in the day we went swimming again at my uncles house.  It was a really action packed weekend and I have been tired all week from not having any time off!  The summer has flown by and soon it will be fall and I can not wait for it to start cooling down a little.
Ryder and Dean are sooo funny!

Ready for Fall

I never thought I would say this, but I am ready for fall!  I am super sick of the heat and I would pay to feel a nice cool breeze on my face!  I love summer, but sadly I am just plain tired of being hot and sticky all of the time!!!
 We finally found a good place to hang our NZ!  This is a wedding gift from Peter and Rebecca and I just love it!
 I also sold another art work on my Etsy!  If only I could sell something every day or week!
Last weekend we went to visit my Grandpa and all the Bonneville guys and it turned out the my shirt matched one of the cars perfectly.

Now I am just waiting for that cool breeze...

A Whole Year

I never think  of a year in the way everyone else does from Jan to dec.  Most of the time I think of a year being the anniversary form one major event to a year later from that event. Ever since I moved from Ca to New Zealand I always thought of the year from May when I arrived there till the next May.  This year since we moved from NZ back to the usa in August 2011 it has now been one full year of living in CA again for the first time in 3 years for me and for the first time ever for Grant. 
I have compared this year to my first year of living in NZ and it is completly different.  I felt like the first year I lived in NZ took forever, it was the longest year of my life! It was fun, but long. But living here so far has flown by! I guess its because I am no longer missing all of my family and probably because we had so much going on, from getting married to finding jobs and so on.  It is so nice to be able to live my life again without having to be on the computer everyday trying to catch up with everyone from here like I had to do in NZ.
I feel like if I stayed living abroad eventually I would have had to give up on staying in touch with all my family because it just became very difficult to have 2 separate lives. Luckily for now I am back home and I am able to see everyone all the time!  There are plenty of things that I miss quite a lot about NZ, that I never thought I would, but that is life I can't have everything!
So in review it has been an excellent year of living in CA!

Kelly's Engagement

On Thursday night Grant and I drove into LA, which we never do, to help celebrate my friend Kelly's birthday and engagement!  The restaurant we went to is called Perch and the bar is on the roof top.
Driving into LA and driving home was a nightmare only because we don't know the city very well and its really hard to navigate with all the one way streets and unknown areas.

It was all worth it though to be able to share her joy and excitement at being engaged!

 The happy couple!

It was a really fun night!
