Lately

Dallin and I have been so busy lately. It feels like 2016 is flying by, it’s going to be over in a blink. We have been living in Brooklyln for 8 months now!! I can’t believe it’s been that long, it feels like we just moved here. We’re loving living here. Brooklyn is home.

I wanted to share some pics of what we’ve been up to lately and I realized – I need to take more pictures! I want to remember all the fun things!!!

I have a new baby nephew ^^^ We’ve been so excited for little baby Remy’s arrival and I can’t wait to karate chop those cheeks in January

We saw my favorite band play (again). Hive Riot is a Utah band! Both times I’ve seen them play have been in NY. I love them. Look them up if you haven’t, you’ll fall in love too!

A week or two before Halloween we went on a Ghost Tour of Greenwich Village with some great friends and I loved it! New York has so much fun history and I was eating it up. This is a picture of the ‘Friends’ apartment (although, not haunted or historical I just thought it was a touristy thing to do).

We learned all the parks in the city used to be graveyards – bodies still under there :/

We learned all of the brown street signs in the city signify that you’re in a historic district. Way cool!

We didn’t have Halloween plans until my cousin texted me last minute and told us to meet them in the city for the Halloween parade. Donna, my cousin,  her husband and two kiddos have been traveling the country in their RV for the past year. They show up every once in a while and we try to take advantage of it whenever they pop in. They are in DC now and who knows where they’ll end up next.

Our last minute costume ‘Peaky Blinders’ (literally put together in less than an hour). Thanks to my Aunt Bunny for the vintage gown and Great Grandma for the flawless coat.

While my parents were here we explored a few eats we haven’t before – I really liked the decor in the place below.

I was feeling super loved! Mom brought me some Swig cookies in her suitcase! I love a good Dirt Ball. Too bad a Raspberry Dream wouldn’t have survived the flight. I miss Swig too much!

Having my parents here was so fun. I loved showing them around Prospect Park, Central Park, Soho, China Town! I miss them already!

I finished Gloria’s new book on election day. A day that broke my heart a little. I don’t know when America will be ready for a female President, but I hope it’s in my lifetime. I want to see a President who looks like America! I want my nieces to see there are no limits for women.

I loved this book and highly recommend anything written by Gloria. She’s inspiring!

We attended NYCFC’s very first playoff game ever! They lost terribly, but at least we had this nasty bucket of chicken to comfort us.

Less than 2 months until I get to see this face tho!!!! (below) She’d kill me if she knew I posted this but that’s what she gets for leaving me for 1.5 years!

Washington DC

We had a blast in DC this weekend and as we are popping popcorn getting ready to watch the debate tonight I can’t help but feel grateful we had this experience this weekend. It was great to ‘get back to our roots’ and get some feeling for what our nation is founded on. I’ll be honest, I’m hoping this debate tonight is as entertaining as I think it’s going to be. I can’t wait!

Some highlights –

  • We saw a bunch of the museums and memorials
  • Played with our adorable nieces – Gabby, Rozzie and Coco 🙂
  • Dallin went to a BYU game
  • I went to the Peeps store with my Aunt Bunny (highlight of my trip)
  • I went to the Opera at the Nationals stadium, and LOVED it

I made a quick video to help remember the fun forever! Enjoy!! Stay tuned for pics to come.

A weekend with the Greenhalgh’s is always a party! 30 people in 1 house can get a little cray. I made a video of our trip, you can watch it here. I also wanted to share some of my favorite photos from the trip! Enjoy!!IMG_2390

I loved watched Dez cling to Dallin because she was nervous about petting the goats. IMG_2326IMG_2455IMG_2401
