I did it! I threw a bridal shower all by myself.

for my darling younger sister Liz of course! I was too busy getting all the food ready to take pictures of it. But I will say that the chocolate covered strawberries went fast! Here are some pictures I did manage to capture:

You can't see it, but there is a veil on the crown :)
me and lizliz
we had a toilet paper wedding dress design competition
and of course she got some hot lingerie!

9 of the last 13 weekends

have been devoted to The Vibrant Sound and Cubworld. These are the two bands Aaron plays in. 

For 9 of the last 13 weekends Aaron has been in:

St George
Las Vegas
Austin
Logan
Rexburg

These shows require overnight travel (mostly because they have out-of-town shows booked on Friday and Saturday night) so I've been looking for new things to do on the weekends. So far I:

sleep in
go to the gym
go shopping
watch movies on netflix instant
watch tv shoes on hulu
play lots of solitaire

Any other ideas of fun things to do for one? (And by fun that does not mean cleaning, getting another job, etc) Maybe someone else's husband is gone a lot of the time too?

Some stuff you probably don't know

and probably don't care about... but I felt like outlining my "perfect day." It's fun to dream sometimes, right?

My day would begin without an alarm clock (this is important). 

I'd open the curtain to marvel at gorgeous green mountains and stunning blue ocean. 

Next I'd have a breakfast buffet with fresh organic fruit/juice/crepes/pancakes/waffles/french toast/fried prosciutto overlooking my favorite landscape with my friends and family. 

I'd then get ready to walk to a tennis court where I'd play for an hour or so with someone at my skill level, the weather would be sunny and 65. 

After that I'd get together picnic/bbq food and walk down to the beach. My friends and family would be there, the weather would warm up to about 80 and we'd eat/paddle board/lay out and play a little beach volley ball. 

After that I would go to the spa w/the girls. We would get massages, facials, pedicures, and manicures while watching the sunset over the ocean. 
 

I would then go home and get all dressed up for a fancy dinner out. 

After dinner we'd all go to a show - something like Wicked, Cirque Du Soleil, etc. 

For a late night dessert we'd have authentic Italian gelato. 

Just thinking about this makes me so happy! It's not too unrealistic is it?

Aaron knows this guy, Devin, who gets to travel and create these amazing videos. If you have time check out his other stuff. I love every single one... especially the ones he filmed in Hawaii...
