XDS

After years of wanting to get a gun I finally bought my first one!  I decided to go with a Springfield XDS 9 mm.

A couple weeks ago I went shooting with my dad and Cindy to break it in. It was a fun afternoon and the weather couldn’t have been better.  It was also fun to improve my shooting a little.  We shot with my Springfield, my dad’s Smith and Wesson and then had a little fun with the .22.  It was such a fun afternoon and I loved getting to hang out with my dad and Cindy a little.  Can’t wait for the next time we go shooting!

Fall is in the air and with it come fall pictures!  I love watching them grow and change each year.  I helped my mom and sister take some pictures of the kids.  Here are a couple of my favorites.  Love these kids!

In October my BFF’s had a surprise birthday party for her dad who turned 70!  She did such a great job I had to post a couple pictures from it.  Thanks Jen for letting me be a part of such a fun family moment!

New Car

10 years ago I bought my truck and I have loved being a truck girl.  So many memories have been made with it and it was fun to drive.  Its crazy to think about how much my life has change in the last 10 years!  I would laugh at times because my friend John use to say how everyone in Idaho drove trucks and owned dogs, both of which I did.  I have thought about selling it a few times in the last year as I no longer really use it at a truck truck but wasn’t ready to let go of it just yet.  But a few things happened that I wasn’t planning on with the ex and so I made the tough decision to sell it.  It was hard to say goodbye.

Has hard as that was, I am also loving my new car!!!  I bought a 2014 Toyota Rav4 and love it!  It is smaller but not too small.  It’s a lot of fun to drive and I love all the new gadgets it has in it.  I loved the sunroof in my truck so that was a must for my new car as well.  I am excited to start new memories in it!

Sept Road Trip!

In September I headed out on a little road trip.  My first stop was to Pocatello to meet the newest member of the family, my cousins little boy Jett.  Babies are so much fun!  I loved watching Paige with him and her learning her new role as mother.  Loved baby time!

I also meet up with a good friend Jordan, his sweet wife Caitlyn, and their two little girls, one who was born the same day as Jett!  It was fun to catch up on life with them.

After Pocatello I headed to Burley to have one last B-Town adventure with one of my best friends Jeff before he moved back to Boise!!!  Our first adventure was getting to go on a ride along with him.  I was so excited when we got the approval to ride.  It was a lot of fun to see Jeff in the Trooper role as he is a really good Trooper.  We also made a good team and like every ride I get to go on I learned a lot.  I have so much respect of our Officers, they have a tough job and it’s one I don’t think I could do.

The rest of the weekend was spent eating out, exploring City of Rocks and the area around it, watching movies, laughing, talking, and just enjoying every minute of spending time with each other.
