Camelback Mountain

On Presidents Day a group of us decided to hike Camelback Mountain. I have always wanted to do it since I moved here. It was hard....but so much fun! As you can see it was a perfect day in AZ to go hiking. We met a ton of new people on the trail and got a much needed workout in the process! Good times.

I made it!!!!!

Ode to Andrew!

For those who may not know my little brother, Andrew, is on a mission for our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) in Fresno, California. Today is the Ode to Andrew because he only has 100 more days until he comes home! Horray!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited, I can hardly wait. He is having amazing experiences serving and teaching others. He has also had MANY learning experiences. While he has been gone we have been able to talk to him a few times, and e-mail every week, and it is crazy to hear him change from this little kid to a man (yep, I said it....he is a man!). Although I am so happy he decided to selflessly give two years of his life, I am very excited to have him come home. Let the count down begin!

A Wilson Christmas!

I know your probably thinking...really, another bread picture! You don't family actually let me make the rolls for Christmas Eve Dinner...that is huge since they l.o.v.e. Shirley's. As you can see, I made some good looking rolls...and they tasted delicious :)

My Parents are SOOOOO cute!
While we were waiting for dinner to be done we had a mini photo shoot...there are a ton of pictures of each of us in the kitchen.
You're so probably think this blog is about you!
My mom's Christmas present to Roxy....pretending to touch her!

Caitlyn got a pannini maker for Christmas. We ate pannini's everyday!

Roxy got a new pair of shoes! Let's just say she didn't love them!
It was hillarious watching her try to walk around.

Big Lights Will Inspire You!

My beautiful sister Erin had a few days off in between cities (she tours with the musical Wicked) and planned a girls trip to NYC for a few days. It was a BLAST! The Wilson girls love to be together no matter where we are...but we also love to visit New York. Although our trip was short we still did a lot of things.....
Me and Erin
During our stay I had the opportunity to go and see one of my favorite musicals, Bye Bye Birdie. I watched this movie all the time when I was young and know all the songs by heart. It was so much fun; seeing it made me feel like a kid again.
I love you Conrad, oh yes I do!

John Stamos, a.k.a. Uncle Jessie, played the part of Albert Peterson and since we have connections we got to go backstage after the show. As you can see Caitlyn got to meet him. He left by the time I got there on the night I went. I was bummed...I had a huge crush on him when I was a kid!

Me, Mom, and Caitlyn
Yeah for the Subway

Chirstmas in NYC is magical...and very cold. Burrrr!

I hear "Big" lights will inspire you...I am completly inspired!

"I'm happy to be here...I really am!"

It really is HUGE!


These star lights (that changed colors) were my favorite part. They were so cute! I had a blast with my sisters and mom. We really know how to have a good time. I love them so much. Thanks girls for a great trip and tons of memories. Lets go to Hawaii next!

Can you think of anything better than homemade bread?

When I went home for the holidays (I know, I know...the holidays were months ago! I am a little behind on my blogging!) I had yet another bread making lesson just to make sure I got it down. This time my mom and sister, Caitlyn, got in on the action. We had a great time working in the kitchen together. By the end of the day we had a lot of delicious bread, rolls, and cinnamon rolls....can you think of anything better? Now I feel confident enough to do it on my own.
Caution: We had just rolled out of bed and got to work so we are looking good in our pj's, hair a mess, and make-up under our eyes (0r no make-up at all!) You have been warned ;)
Caitlyn and I making rolls!

My mom and Aunt Helen love to eat the dough. Personally I think it is gross, but hey, to each thier own!


Let's just say those loaves of bread did not last long in our house!

Want some? Come and visit me and I will make you a loaf!


My Saturday Nights

Every Saturday I get to work with these AMAZING people at the Mesa, AZ temple. (a few people are missing) We work in the baptistry together and I love it! During the holidays we had a party to celebrate Christmas and we had a great time. The best part was the white elephant gift exchange. I almost got what I wanted...almost!
