My Tribute To Blue

This was actually taken at the concert that we were at, I was right next to this girl.

I just love Blue! This was the 2nd concert that I have been to and it was so great to be able to be so close to the stage. Their music is so inspiring and has so much meaning behind it. We saw them in Austin while living in Dallas and were so excited to learn that they would be playing in Salt Lake. During the concert Justin sang to me and then threw me a guitar pick. I told Rick that he should be jealous :). After the show I got to meet him, he signed my shirt, and then I got a hug from him. It was so great and I can't wait to see them again. Thanks mom, Jackie, and Cari for watching Bella and letting me have such a great b-day present!

Life in Salt Lake is good. The weather during the summer months here is so much better than the hot and humid summers in Dallas, but I REALLY miss Dallas. This statement is so funny to me because I hated it there for the first year and I really wanted to move home, but it was such a great place to live and the people there are so friendly! Not to mention all of the great things that there is to do there. I wouldn't be surprised if one day we move back :)!

The house that we are living in is great and we love our ward. We are right smack on the mountain and the views from our deck are amazing. You can see the entire valley. I am sure the winters are going to be a nightmare, but lets not think of that quite yet.

Bella is doing great and has almost mastered potty training. Okay so that is a little premature, but we are on our 3rd day and the accidents are getting fewer. She is now signed up for dance and gymnastics. She has been wearing her ballet slippers to bed at night, because she is so excited to start dance. She is getting so big and her vocabulary is just growing. Her funny saying now is when we ask her what her name is she says "Bella Dr. Larson". We don't know where she picked that up other than maybe from Rick's graduation, but it is so funny.

Rick is enjoying work and is keeping busy. I must say that I love his four day work week. He is staying active with soccer, flag football, and cycling, which can get a little annoying :) you Rick!

I am just busy with Bella and work of course. It has been great to be around old friends and especially have Rachel move here.

Hope all is well!

This was Yancy. We had him for one day and I am tempted to go get him back. He was such a great dog and I just wasn't ready.
