Vida Tequila

Hi Friends. I have some exciting news! I got an internship with Vida Tequila. Check it out. www.vidatequila.com

I am so so excited!! It is one of the best tequilas on the market today. It's in all the hot spots around the country! I will be planning events for the Sundance Film Festival and other big events with celebrities. Yesterday I went to a presentation/tasting for a new vendor location (Fiddler's Elbow in Salt Lake. We are having an event there next Wednesday night and anybody can come!

Today I've been working on the invitations for the event. I am so excited to be working for them. I was told their last intern is now working in New York City for Elle magazine. Pretty sweet right? And don't worry, this doesn't mean I drink now. Who says you need to drink to plan the parties? :)

[sitting there trying to think of a captivating way to blog. following mental conversation ensues]

"This sucks," says negative Brady.

"Hey, knock that off. This is a good way to start," interjects positive Brady

"Whatever, people think this is a stupid post already. This blows and it is nothing but a pity read. I wanna go home."

"We can't go home, we gotta go to class."

"Ugg... class. Bleh." Blurted loud and obnoxiously.

"I know, bleh. Today is especially boring too."

"We haven't learned anything at all today, or ALL YEAR in this class. Why do we even go?Seriously, why don't we just go home a take a nap."



"I mean we physically cannot."

"Why?" impatiently this time.

"Britdawg has the keys."

"Damn it."

"Sucks. I know. Better luck next time."

[moment of mental silence as we pay attention to the teacher teaching for a few seconds]

"I'm hungry, are you hungry?"

"Yeah, I'm kind of hungry."

[we take a bit, deciding on what we want to get today]

"I'm thinking we should get that sandwich that Britdawg got us from Hogi-Yogi on Friday. That sauce was really good."

"Mmmm it was really good... or a chicken bowl. We like those."

"Yeah we do."

[we sit there smiling to ourselves like two idiots when the girl next to us asks us what is so amusing]

Said matter-of-factly and in unison, "food."

[weird look follows as girl turns back to the lecture in the front of the class]

"What the hell is her problem?"

"She thinks you're strange."

"How am I strange? She's the one staring at us and sticking her nose where it doesn't belong. We hate her."

"I like her, she's nice. She let us borrow her notes when we were sick the other week"

"Well I don't like her."

"You don't really like anybody, so that is not a big surprise. You're the rain cloud of this duo remember."

Said in a mocking tone, "you're the the cloud of this duo remember?"


"Can we just please LEAVE? We're not even paying attention, so lets just go already"

"I am getting pretty bored too... looks like he is wrapping up anyways."

Exhaling loudlly, "finally."

[quietly pack up our things]



"I'm sorry I snapped at you."

"Its ok, I forgive you."


"No problem."


"What is it?"

"I love you."

"I love you too."

Here I am trying to make my best witch face.  It didn't work out so well.  I just look angry haha

Halloween night we went to our friends Andrew and Alexis's halloween party!  It was honestly the best halloween party I have ever been to and will ever go to.  It was DECKED out!!  Their house even looks like a haunted house!  Everyone there was dressed up hard core, so that made it fun too. Here are Raegan and Joey as the bikers!
Andrew was a vampire and Lexi was the victim!  So cute!
The witch and her German husband.
Brady's best friends.
Here is a full shot of our costumes.  Brady's mom made Brady's one night!  Doesn't it look awesome!  I bought some corderoy pants from DI and she transformed them!  I love it.
Halloween was fun, but I am ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Although, it really doesn't feel like that time of year to me, and I hate it!  I've been listening to Christmas music at work, but it just doesn't feel right.  Don't you hate that?  Where are You Christmas?? :)

Mega Update

New York was amazing!!  It was so much fun being with my whole family, including my grandparents, and Brady!  We did so many fun things!!  It was perfect.  It was pretty cold, but we were lucky to never get rain.  
This is us all on our first night eating at a local restaurant!  I got the biggest sandwich ever.  It was so fun!

We ate at the coolest places!  This was just a tiny Italian place with really yummy pizza!  The picture doesn't really capture the ambiance.

Next we drove to Palmyra and definitely took the long way! :)  It was fun though.  We took the scenic route on accident, but it was gorgeous!!    Brady got this great picture of the Palmyra temple and the fall colors.  Did you know the temple is on the Smith's land?  It's pretty cool! The story is one big circle.
This is our family outside Joseph Smith's family home.  That is the actual fence that he and his brothers built!!  It was so sturdy.  The spirit was so strong on these grounds.  I couldn't help but cry most of the time.

This is at the visitor's center in Palmyra.  It was really pretty!
And last was Canada!  This is us at Niagra Falls.  It was definitely freezing!!!

Well, our trip was amazing.  Traveling with the Buckhannon's is the best!  I love my family.  More updates to come soon! :)

So I know I have a lot to update on, but it's hard because we don't get great internet in our apt. I just wanted to say that the post below this one was written by my cute Brady! And he is silly, because the website was created by him and his friends. They are all really creative.

Brady has been rapping since high school! He will only rap in front of a select group of people and luckily I am one of them. I remember the first time he did it in front of me and right after he was super embarrassed. I want him to perform at the Velour sometime, because he really is great!! I have a white, rapper husband! I love it! Brady's id on the website is iamfishious. Here is the link to their website: rapnerds.wordpress.com (This is the most rapper looking picture I could find of Brady haha)

Soon I will do an update with all our pictures from New York (so fun!) and Halloween...but here is a Halloween preview thanks to our good friends Andrew and Lexi!

Hot blog


Stumbled upon this blog the other day by accident. Apparently, a group of friends made a blog just for rapping to each other. Interesting stuff. They post hyperlinks within the verses that coincide with the topic or rhyme. Sometimes it is a video, picture or definition. Very clever! I wish I had thought of it! These guys are crazy good!

Brady and I are so lucky because we get to go on vacation with my family!! We will be leaving on Sunday and get home on Saturday. Guess where we are going...?!

New York City!!!!
I am so excited! I haven't been since I was in high school. Brady has never been and he has never been on vacation with my family, so I am even more excited for that! We will be in the city for 3 days then we are driving to...

Cooperstown, New York

This is our half way point between NYC and our next destination. It is a cute little town where the baseball hall of fame is. Brady is super excited because he LOVES baseball. He said he is going to wear his Boston Red Sox hat everywhere because everyone there loves the Yankees. I told him we are going to get kicked if he does that. Then we will drive to...

Palmayra, New York
This is a picture of Joseph Smith's farm. I have never been here before!! I can't wait to feel the spirit there and see the place where I've learned so much about! After our stay in Palmayra, we are going to...

Niagra Falls

This is going to be beautiful!! One of the seven wonders of the world. I just can't wait! The second half of the day we will be in...

Toronto, Canada

Canada!!! This is a definite first for me. I love my life!! I can't wait to see all the beautiful leaves changing colors for fall. I will post pictures when we return. Happy Autmn!

Emily's 20th Birthday!! And some good news :)

Emily's 20th birthday was on Monday!  A bunch of her friends went to Texas Road House for dinner and it was so fun!! 

 I decided I wanted to try and make a cake from the cute cake recipie book my aunt Jennifer gave me for my bridal shower.

Needless to say, it took me longer than I anticipated.  It turned out pretty cute (not exactly as I had planned), but it was fun!
Brady and I went to the BYU Cougarboard tailgate party last Saturday followed by the game.  That was a huge disappointment.  Especially since Brady is their biggest fan this season!  It was still fun though :)

Brady has been trying to find a job since we've been back, and let me tell you...it's hard!  Everybody is looking for a job!!  I am lucky I got to keep my job at UVU with the developmental math department.  So Brady has applied everywhere.  He finally got a job one day a week at Blockbuster, but when he went to fill out his "New Hire" papers, they told him they were putting a hold on hiring people.  We were pretty sad.  Then I found this job on the UVU Job board for an on campus job at the testing center.  He applied and got a call for an interview the next day.  I had to go to the testing center for work and over the years, I've become good friends with the people who work there.  I told them Brady had an interview there and they told me 60 people applied for the job and only 8 got an interview!  I was freaking out.  Brady's interview went great!!  That night we went to the temple and I just felt like everything would be okay.  In the end, Brady got a call today saying he got the job!!!  It's so perfect!  It's great hours and when there is no school, there is no work.  Which is how it is for me too!  I am just so grateful.  Brady and I have been blessed once again!

Best Post YET!!!

OKAY!  So I know I don't have a ton to update on, but I do have a lot of pictures to put up!   Some of these are way over due, but the last month has been pretty chaotic.  

First.  When I was in Texas, I was dying to get my hair done.  But I didn't have my wonderful Jenny to do it for me!  I was also trying to save money, so I went to WalMart.  That's right.  I bought a box!  GASP! When I went to BYU Hawaii, I highlighted my own hair with a box and it turned out amazing!!  

While at WalMart, I met an older woman who was looking at hair color boxes too.  We started talking and she became my reason for completely doing this to my hair.  Brady was coming in town that night to visit for the day and I wanted to look extra cute!

This is my before shot....don't judge.  Seriously.  It's also very dirty.

As you can see...this is nothing a little baby powder could cover.  I needed something SERIOUS!

So after the box dye, my roots were slightly orange.  I cried, but got over it 10 minutes later.  My mom (who hadn't even seen it) convinced me on the phone that it was probably better than my roots.  TRUE.  

This is the after shot.

What are your thoughts?  I'm only wearing that red shirt because I didn't want to get dye on my cute tie dye shirt. HAHA

Ok next on the list of updates.  My last day at SeaWorld was bitter sweet.  I was so excited to get back to Utah to be with my sister, cousins, friends and Brady, but it was a little sad.

I was able to go meet a couple of the Beluga Whales!  I got to do some of the tricks the trainers get to do.  It was so fun!  I officially love these animals.  They really have a mind of their own.

When I got home from Texas I went to DI in search for some bedroom furniture.  You know what?  I love good deals and I love crafts.  That's why I love DI...sometimes.  But this time, it was great!!!  I found a nightstand for $5 and a tall dresser for $8.  Yeah...$13 all together.  Saweet.  My sister emily helped me redo them.  Here are the before and after pics.  I haven't put hardware on them yet, but you can get the idea.

So as you all know, I said yes to my apartment before I even saw it.  I had Amanda go look at it for me and she said yes, so I said YES!  Lauren came with me for the first time to see it and I was insta-in-love.  Cutest neighborhood.  Kids everywhere.  Safe.  And our landlords were out in their garden...precious.  Anyway, our apartment is the bomb.

This is Brady and all of our crap everywhere.  As you can tell by his face, moving is not fun haha.

The first night Brady got home we slept on an air mattress.  Hi--it was like deflated by the time we woke up in the morning.  So that day we went and bought a bed.  This is not our comforter...it's some suede one that Brady has had his whole life and he thinks it's the coolest.  I am not really a fan.  Don't judge.

A couple days ago my grandma's husband was so nice to drive up all of our wedding gifts and some of our furniture.  We FINALLY have gotten everything moved in!!!  There are still some finishing touches, but it feels so good to be in a clean home without any boxes.  Here are some pictures!!

I love our couches!!  We got a great deal for with the Labor Day sale!! :)
We bought our tv on KSL and got a great deal.  Brady loves that he can watch football now!
I still need a lamp shade for the bedside lamp and a few more pillows :)

(Our real bedding...I LOVE IT!)

The bathroom...

This is by far the most intense post I have ever done.  Let me know if you enjoyed it!!  Hope everyone is having a great Saturday and a great 3 day weekend!
