Lonely Pumpkin Pie

I'm here blogging alone in my lonely house with a lonely coke in my lonely hand. Okay so it's not that bad, but Brevin's out of town and the dogs have been napping ALL day long. 

Brevin is in Las Vegas for a National Board Exam Committee conference. He's super excited. He along side 15 others will go through each question in the Funeral directors exam and check for errors and make sure it's up to date with the standards. He plans on eating everything I don't like while he's away. He visited Aunt Becky and her family today for lunch and had a swell ole time. He took a walk around and hit 10,000 steps! Here's some fun stuff he found on his walk. Now off to the $25 buffet!

Funnest news of the funnest news ever! 
We have a new niece! Arya Skye Parrish! That make 5 nieces! 
So much fun. We wish we could be there. 
Here are some stolen pictures from the fam....

Brevin gave blood for our blood drive. I would have if I wasn't a ghost without blood to give. He then treated himself to some pretty creepin' Reeses.

The art teaching began. I teach 6 classes: beginning photography, advanced photography, painting, abstract art, art around the world and photo editing. You can see some details about my first 3 weeks here, here, and here. It's so fun and sometimes stressful to come up with activities, but I love having the freedom in teaching my classes and the kids are so fun. 

As I've said before, I've joined a gym. I'm taking some of the easier classes to start off from being out of shape. So I'm in there with people like me and a whole lot of senior citizens. They're the cutest. We Zumba it up. One brings produce to every class to share. Others tell me how they hate being diabetic and just want pumpkin pie this time of year.

Speaking of pumpkin pie....

We went to McDonalds to order some of their amazing pumpkin pies, cuz yah know, fall. and I was like "Brevin I want 2" he looked at me like 'girl are you serious' then turned to order "can I get 4 pumpkin pies?" We then drove up to pay and he loudly leans back to our empty backseat and says "now only one each kids." I about died. Which is funny because he's a mortician. hahahaha. I'm low blood sugared.
More mortician humor for you....Brevin says this person has to urns because they have split personalities. I don't know what's funnier, Brevin telling the joke or watching him giggle at it.

I've started school through pathway! It's very exciting and motivating to be going back to school. I'm required to take an institute class, so Brevin has joined me. We're taking the "Eternal Families" class. Then afterwards I have a gathering for school. So far the assignments have been cake, but I'm having fun getting to know people. 

We had a swell time going to the temple to do sealings for the family. We love our temple up here.

We finally figured out a pretty good laundry system, so we updated our laundry room. btw, there's like 5 people living here we don't know about by the amount of laundry we have. eek. No Christmas clothes palease. lol. I love having a silhouette machine so I can vinyl up the walls of our house.

I took pictures for the funeral homes to use on their websites, brochures and stuff. It was fun, not your average photography gig, but it's good to be well rounded. . . . like pumpkin pie. HA.  

I'm going to go eat now.
Have a great week ya'll!

the summer load


We've taken a couple trips to Utah this summer. Our first one was early June where all my nieces were together in the same place. Pretty rare. It was adorable to have them together playing, and I absolutely loved watching Brevin flip on Funcle mode. He's going to make a great daddy someday. 

We played at the park.

We went to Finding Dory.

We went to Cracker Barrel and Grandma came. I love this picture of Grandma and Gabby. Such a sweet memory. 

We rode the train at the mall.

and shopping

Probably the best part about our first visit to Utah was Taylorsville Dayzz. We had a blast riding rides with the nieces and Brevin's sister Rosie. 


We got our faces painted.

We watched fireworks and fell asleep on all car rides.

So we had a scare and couldn't find Molly. It's really sad to lose your dog in your dead grass.

Summer camp has been a fun adventure. It's really fun to enjoy the company of such crazy kiddos.
Brevin and I had a fun paint night. His turned out super cool.  

Alright, Pokemon Go.... fun way to get to the craft store without your husband complaining. lol. just kidding, he loves shopping with me. Especially since it's Halloween in August at Michaels. He loves checking out all the skulls, coffins, and hearses.

I had a fun time face timing my parents while Brevin's cousin, Quinton, cut my dad's beautiful white hair. 

The sweetnesses.

We had a fun mini photoshoot for our sweet little Parrish girlies. 

We had fun playing with Grandma's huge beach balls.

Brevin doesn't know his strength... he chucked one over the fence.

For our second trip down we took some fun pictures of the Clifford peeps before Ian left on his mission. 

We went to a fun King Singers/ Mormon Tabernacle performance. Great night. Before we got there we went up parking garage that was under construction. Immediately regretted that decision, it was creepy and at any given moment you could drive off the edges. Sticking to the City Center underground parking from now on. 

We celebrated Stella's 3rd Birthday. 

We got a doll that looks like her

We had a fun time celebrating by going to the aquarium. 


We went to Spaghetti Factory! Love of my stomach's life! ha. Had fun watching sweet Bayli being cute. We went to celebrate Mom and Brevin's shared birthday. 



Here's some fun activities from some of the summer camps.

Brevin's 26! He was spoiled with a new Fitbit and a model hearse.

Brevin surprised me with an awesome Bob Ross shirt. Pretty much the most epic thing ever. 

I was feeling depressed a couple Saturdays ago, so Brevin took me to Petsmart to see all the puppies for adoption. It took a lot for me not to adopt this cute scruffy face.

Anywho... that's our summer in a nutshell thus far.
