VRx Summer Party 2015

I had so much fun at the company annual summer party this evening. 
I love working for Veridicus Health. I came to this company because of the company culture and I have not been disappointed. I feel so lucky to work with such wonderful people and be part of a great team. 
One of my coworkers is moving to St. George next week so we snapped a quick picture to commemorate our last VRx company party together. We'll miss you Rachael!!!

Our Vegas Weekend

W spent last weekend in Las Vegas.
We had a high/low trip where we started low at the $63 a night Golden Nugget on Fremont Street and the spent two night high at the $999.99 per night (don't worry, we had a massively huge discount to $200) suite at Encore on the Strip.
Both hotels were great and allowed us to lay in the sun by the pool and eat yummy food.
Vegas is always a good idea!!

Little Pieces of Heaven

We are spending a long weekend in Vegas with Cam, Vickie, and Valie.
Lesley and I LOVE to travel with our siblings and today has been filled with little pieces of heaven.
We started out lounging at the great pool here at the Encore Hotel. We got a nice spot right under an umbrella and spent the morning swimming and relaxing.
Then we got cleaned up and went to a late lunch buffet at the Wynn. We ate for so long that they turned over to the dinner menu and we got a whole new menu to eat from. The food was great and so was the decor. The filled the room with flowers and chandeliers in vibrant colors and arrangements.
Then we came back to the room and I took a luxurious bubble bath while everyone else went to M&M Coca-Cola World. I miss having a big bath tub to soak in and our bathroom at the Encore is my dream bathroom.
A low-key day filled with little pieces of heaven.

July 14

I made it all the way to 10 pm without crying, a new July 14th record.
My dad died on July 14, 1984.
Every year I try to pretend that it's just another day but it's not. It is a day my family was changed forever.
I am so grateful to know my family is a unit that will last for all eternity and this brief mortality apart will only be a short period of time in the giant scheme of things.
Because of the atonement of my Savior Jesus Christ, my family is eternal and we will all be together some day.
I am grateful for the blessings of the temple that help me gain an eternal perspective.
I am grateful to know how loved I am by Heavenly Father.
July 14 is a day of gratitude and a day to feel very blessed.

4th of July 2015

We had a fun evening with my favorite tradition with my favorite people. I love Independence Day and I love that it is a day filled with community, family, and friends.
My favorite part of the day is lighting sparklers and seeing large fireworks. It was kind of stormy today but we didn't let it get in the way of our fun. Even when it started raining during the firework show, it was still lots of fun.

Happy Birthday America!!!

June 6

I was baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 23 years ago today. Today is also my nephew's baptism day. I am so happy I get to share this special date with him (and my twin Lesley, and my cousin Jenny as we three were baptized together in the Tabernacle on Temple Square).
I am so grateful every day for my membership in this church and for the gift of the Holy Ghost. I feel guided and protected daily through my covenants that I have made with my Heavenly Father.

Other milestones to celebrate on June 6: I graduated from high school, D-Day, and my grandfather's birthday.
Grandpa turns 87 today!! We took a picture of him and his great grand children through his daughter Gloria. Grandpa is so loved!!!!

Happy Birthday to my Fellow Cat Lady!!!

Yes, our birthday was a week ago but I still wanted to document the occasion. :)
I am so lucky to be an identical twin and that my twin is my very best friend. We often joke that we are the same person in two bodies!
This picture was taken around Easter at our house on Scottish Drive when Lesley and I were 3 or 4 years old. I remember loving this dress and wearing this teddy bear necklace (I felt so grown up!!).
Lesley is holding our beloved cat Berkely. This picture is proof that we a love cats for as long as we can remember! He ran away while we were in Disneyland in 1989.

Birthday Brunch

For our 31st birthday, my mom hosted a yummy brunch at her house. It was all of my favorite food with my favorite people!
Mom made it really special with her fancy China and crystal glasses filled with fresh squeezed orange juice. It was really special.
