family time

Family time is the the best time, in my opinion.

Last weekend we rented The Avengers and decided to watch it and have a sleepover in our front room. It was so much fun! We both ended up falling asleep half way through and it was perfect because we didn't have to wake up and go to bed - we could just keep sleeping! So much fun! I plan on doing it again. :)


I also went on a bit of a crafting spree last weekend. For some crazy reason I woke up at 630 on a saturday morning and couldn't fall back asleep! 
I gave up trying and got right to crafting. I might be crazy ;)

Burlap Fall Wreath

Polka Dot Pennant Banner :)

This is our "Thankful Banner" thanks to pinterest :) I love it so much! Each day we right a little something we are thankful for. 

On Friday my cousin Brendan was married in the Bountiful temple. He and his wife Lexi are so cute! They are very much in love :) 

It was so snowy on their wedding day and some of us forgot to bring an umbrella so we had to use our scarfs to try and protect our hair :) Love my sissys! I got to see all of them this weekend!! :)

In between the luncheon and the reception, we went and checked out Sheels, the new sporting goods store. The Hubby loved it! And I didn't mind it either. :)

Riding the Ferris Wheel at Sheels :)

Some of my cute nieces! :)

I finally got to hold this little bug this weekend!!! :) He is an absolute doll.
Beckham Mathew, my newest nephew :)


On Saturday we woke up to a winter wonderland!!!! Some little doggie loves the snow....

We took a drive up to Sundance with my parents and Emily to check out the deals they were having on ski gear. We found some steals :)

Anyone else think my husband looks a little bit like my dad? Notice their hats, fleece jackets....

They even walk the same! It was cracking us up! 

Cute sissy:)

My parents hadn't seen much of City Creek so we headed up there for the rest of the day. It started to snow again as soon as we got there! I love this time of year! 

I have the cutest hubby :)

We ended the day with that delectable caramel up there. Perfect ending to a perfect weekend with some of the ones we love :)

little sister visits :)

Every couple months Preston and I have the chance for my little sister, Emily, to come and stay with us for a couple of days. 

She likes adventure and experiencing new things so we really try to get our creative juices going when we know she is coming to town. This time around was easy. As much as she has visited us, she's never hiked the Y. So that is what we did.

Emily, Millie and I spent the morning hiking the side of Y mountain. Luckily, it's just a short hike but it was a little steeper than I think Emily was anticipating. She finished though and was so proud of herself! 

The main event of her visit was by definitely the Haunted House we went to. I'm so sad we don't have pictures to document it.

I'm not big into them and neither is Preston, but it is totally worth it to see Emily's reactions. We got a good ab workout from how much Emily always makes us laugh.

The rest of her visit was pretty low key. We did some shopping, ate some delicious pizza at CPK, indulged in frozen yogurt (always on the agenda when Emily comes) and visited with dear friends of ours that touch Emily's life more than they will probably ever know. 

Thanks for visiting, Em! We love you!

This was a halloween that went down in history for the Bishoff's....we FINALLY dressed up! 

Every year since we have been married I have wanted to dress up but every year we haven't had a good enough excuse to do it. 
Well, this year (thanks to our bro & sis-in-law) we had an excuse! 
We were crunched on time as far as coming up with a costume goes so we decided to be super traditional and go as MUMMIES!  

The costumes only lasted about half way through the party but I definitely have to say getting ready was the most fun part. (it's not every day you get to do your husband's makeup:))

So here you have it: 
The Mummies and.....the lady bug (random, yes. but we couldn't not dress her up!) 

This was such a quick and easy and CHEAP costume! We bought plain white fabric at walmart, tore it to shreds and wrapped ourselves up. 

If I had more time I would have made it look more old and tattered but I think it turned out pretty good for being last minute! Not to mention, my goal of dressing up as a couple on halloween finally happened!! :)

Girl's Day Out

This past weekend was spent with all the Bishoff girls up in Park City.

We literally shopped 'til we dropped. We spent most of the day at the outlets snatching up some killer deals, ate at a yummy pizza joint, walked the streets of downtown Park City, and finished up the day with hot tubbing and dipping carmel apples.

It was so much fun to get away for the day and be in such a charming place. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. 

Miss Sammie :)

Miss Makayla June :)

There is just something about those little mountain towns that make my heart happy. I just love everything about them - the old main streets, the architecture of the homes, the closeness of the mountains - i just love it! Every time I visit a place like that it just makes me want to live there. Who knows, maybe someday. :)

Thanks for the fun weekend ladies!

the nightly routine

Come about seven or eight o'clock every night you can expect to see the same thing going on over at our house.

Preston sits down to homework.

Millie sets to work on tormenting him. 

It's pretty entertaining, to be honest. She does this for a good hour most nights! And the funny thing is, she leaves me completely alone. I think she may have a slight crush on my hubby....not sure how I feel about that ;)

Some shots of Millie and Preston dukin it out! 

My loves. 

Eventually she settles down and snuggles in while he finishes up his homework. It certainly provides for some good entertainment every night. These two just melt my heart. :)

is it really october?

I seriously can't believe this year is almost over. Why does time have to go by so fast?? 
It makes me sad.

Remember a couple of months ago when I was all gung-ho(spelling?) on blogging again? 
Yeah....that lasted a good two weeks.
And then I fell off the wagon again. That seems to be a trend for me.

So, here I it another try. Just a few highlights of the past couple of months. 

One good thing about the year coming to an end: FALL LEAVES!!! I love Utah and being able to experience all four seasons. 

We happened to be in Moab for Homecoming weekend and got to see these little cuties give a member of they royalty flowers. It was so fun to see these guys do this and remember doing it myself years ago! I love hometown traditions. :)

While in Moab, we had the quickest photo shoot ever! I wanted a cute, updated picture of us and we were pretty limited on time so we literally pulled over, snapped a few pictures in front of this shed and called it good! 

It literally took like 5 minutes.

Husband was very happy about that. He's not much of a photoshoot kind of guy. (Especially when I dress him up in long sleeves when its like 100 degrees outside:)

I also took the plunge and cut bangs. I haven't had them since the 5th grade. I like them, but they do require some extra effort on my part. We'll see how long I make it before I decide to start the growing out process.....:)

Preston took a quick trip down to Blanding and spent some time on the ranch with his Grandparents. It is such a pretty place down there, I'm sad I missed it.
I was at baby shower for my oldest sister who will be having her fourth baby any day now! We spent the day getting mani/pedis! Such a fun and relaxing day!


Gorgeous, I tell you. (the picture below, not the cows:)

Preston's two favorite girls :)

One of our favorite places to eat in Moab.
{Albuquerque Turkey}
{Fish Tacos}

The Provo River had a TON of trout in it this year. The boys could literally stick their hands in the water and catch fish with their bare hands! 
It was nuts!
I was obviously observing from the sidelines during this activity. :)

The great houdini! 

We visited the State Fair not once, BUT TWICE, this year and had a blast! 

We got to see Lonestar (a country band) in concert and I was in heaven! I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that thoroughly enjoyed it....haha

Our dear friends The Evans, Taryn & Steve :)

I had my first official backpacking experience. We hiked to Pittsburg lake (at 9 o'clock at night, by the way...that's a story for another day). 

In the morning we were woken up by these beauties! A mama and her baby! SO COOL!

Our tent that is most certainly not meant for backpacking.

Good thing I have an extra strong hubby to pack it up the mountain for me :)

He's my favorite :)

Little Millie hiker!

Well that should be enough to bore you for one night. Way to go if you made it through that entire post! I will hopefully be back soon but I can't make any promises! :)
