this weekend, B requested we check out the redwood forests.
there are so many forests to choose from and they are all about the same distance away, 
so we decided on big basin redwoods state park.
road was quite windy to get there but once we got there it was well worth it.
B believes it was the prettiest place he had ever been to (even claimed it was prettier than hawaii...)

of course he had to give a little love to the father of the forest

who wouldn't be upset? this tree was a beaut

there are so many hikes to choose from and was only $10 to enter the park!
i am sure we will be back again soon. probably next time on the bike

beach city

 there are so many beautiful sites to see so close to us so, we have made it a point to take advantage and use the weekends to explore! 
last weekend we headed to the coast of santa cruz to hike along the cliffs and bask in the sun. 
it was perfect. i felt like i was home.
after the beach, we decided to head to the crepe place to have a bite to eat (and indulge my nutella craving).
little did we know that there would be live belly dance performers to entertain us!
i was eating it all up (food, atmosphere, ladies doing their thing)
but B was a little unsure. 
it was a saturday we will never forget .

Guess what.
 I am now officially a college graduate!
I can't believe it. These years have flown by and as stressed as school makes me 
I was quite sad driving away from campus today. 
The University of Utah has been good to me and I will never forget the memories. 

But now I can celebrate the holidays stress free!
Well maybe not completely stress free... since we are moving to California the day after Christmas.

I am going to cuddle up and listen to *NSYNC Christmas
and prepare for our white elephant party on Saturday.

oh how I love this time of year...

Never have I ever been a brunette until this moment...

I am a wimp when it comes to change so this was a huge deal for me.
 Luckily I have the best hair stylist in the world who I trust with all my hair needs. 
And I would have always wondered if I had never done it. So I took the plunge.
I mean brunettes have fun too right?
