Halloween Quilt

I finished this quilt back in August, and I am finally getting around to posting about it!  Times goes by so quickly. Making this quilt was a fun challenge for me because I decided to make up the pattern. In my head I thought it was going to be so easy, but I definitely made a few mistakes. Staying up until 2 am working on this quilt seemed like a...

  Happy Friday everyone! I am making it a goal to share more of my work here on my site, so here we go! This is a project that my sister Natalie envisioned and it evolved into an entire sewing poster project for our mom. By the way, my mother is a crazy sewing lady, and if you ever need anything quilted you should call her. She is the best...

Ode to Autumn

Hey everybody! Please forgive me for my absence. I started a new position at work and I am just getting adjusted to my new responsibilities. I now do social media for NordicTrack and it has been such a fun change, more about that later. I just wanted to post a few pics of what is going on around here.   This year I have really got into the spirit of...

Labor Day in the Country

We spend our holiday weekend in the country. It was absolutely beautiful. I hope someday we can live away from the city in a place like this.

The Tri Beast

On July 25, 2009 in Burley Idaho, a tri-beast was born.  I call her Bertha and she lives inside me.  It all happened at the Spudman. What is the Spudman you might ask? Let me tell you.  This is an Olympic distance race which consists of  a .9 mile swim, a 25 mile bike ride, and a 6.2 mile run. It is one of my favorite races of all time, and I...

Slot Canyon Project: Figure 8 knot

Hey everybody! As part of my Slot Canyon Project I am going to do a few posts about basic knots.  I’m starting with the figure 8 knot because it was the first one my dad taught me.  It is a very common climbing knot because it can be used to attach a rope to an anchor or harness.  It can also be used as a stopper knot or to join two ropes.   ...

Slot Canyon Gear List

  1. Camelbak: This is my preferred day pack for any outdoor adventure. It is just the right size to hold the food and water that I need. It's not too bulky or heavy. It has great little pockets all over to hold random necessities like Chapstick and sunscreen. You will not see me hiking around without one of these bad boys. 2. Camelbak Reservoir: Don't even think about attempting a slot canyon without...

If you haven't been, stop what you are doing, find your calendar, and schedule a get away right now. I promise you will not regret it! Zion is one of Utah's most stunning National Parks. There are lots of things for tourists to do like hiking, biking, and shopping at...

Made in America

I can’t help myself, I just love Independence day. This year we spent our first evening of vacation out on the water. There is nothing quite as American as some good ol’ canoeing and fishing. (more…)
