I have a love hate relationship with FALL!! It's one of my favorite times of year! I love the cooler weather... Getting to wear jackets...the colors...carving pumpkins...caramel apples...parties...dressing up....yummy food and much more! The down side is it doesn't last long enough!!

This was taken at Fish Lake! We went down to devin's grandma's cabin for conference! We were lucky and got to go twice this year!! I love it down there it's so pretty and it's so fun getting away from provo, even for one night!

petal to the medal

For the last 3 weekends we have been out of town! We have spent many hours on the road! It's been tons of fun and I'm sad to see the adventures end and to go back to work! But life must go on! Our first adventure was up to Logan. Devin and his dad, uncle, and cousin rode in a century bike race (100 miles around Cache County)!

Our next adventure was over Labor day, we went down to Devin's family's cabin in Fish Lake. We had Drew's eagle court of honor there as well as went fishing in freezing cold weather, went hiking, skipping rocks at the lake, eating our body weight in treats, star gazing, avoiding ticks, eating more treats, and many more adventures.

Then our adventures end with LOTOJA. A 200 mile bike race from Logan to Jackson Hole. Devin's uncle Norm rode in it and Devin was so sad that he didn't sign up early enough to ride. Our job was "support". We drove the bike route, stopping at the feed stations to give Norm food and new water bottles, all together we stopped 3 times and then met him at the finish! He did the race under 10 hours, his best time in 6 years! Then we stayed over night in Jackson Hole, which I love! While we were there there was a Taste of Jackson Festival with food tasting and booths. It was fun to walk around town. On our way out of town we stopped at the Snake river to dangle our toes and eat lunch! Unfortunately before we got out of Wyoming Devin's aunt's car broke down. So we had quite the adventure cramming 10 people and way too much stuff into the an already bursting at the seams SUV! We had lots of laughs and lots of whining, but we made it back in one piece and had a blast along the way!

helicopters...sailboats...and glowball...oh my!

Last weekend Devin and I went up to Beak Lake with his brothers. We stayed with his aunt, uncle and cousin! It was so fun!! We had quite the adventure this trip! We went to the beach a couple of times. Devin thinks he is better then sunscreen and got toasted one day and is super red!! One night we played glowball (glow in the dark golf) Devin's uncle owns a golf coarse so we went up late at night and took the golf carts out. We had glow in the dark golf balls and then put glow sticks on the poles in each hole! It was intense because there was a lightening storm right above us! I thought we were going to get struck with each swing!

We also went sailing one night. The wind was so wild the side of the boat was practically in the the water. I almost died a couple of times!!

We got to go on a helicopter ride over the lake! It was a rush because it was a small helicopter and there was no door! Luckily Devin had to sit on the outside!!

The last night up there we got to watch fireworks after the boat parade, which completed our grand adventures at Bear Lake! (The home of happiness) My only regret was not getting any shakes!! That is always a bear Lake must!! But overall it was a great trip and I didn't want to come home!!

Jamie and Darren got married last night! Everything was beautiful: the temple, the reception, the bride and much more!! It was so fun being there with Jamie and Darren on their special day!!

Gone Fishin'

A couple weeks ago Devin and I went fishing with Taryn and Kolby at Payson Lakes! Kolby has a canoe which was Devin is convinced we need one as well!! We caught a lot of fish and I am proud to say most of the catches were mine and Taryn's!! It was so much fun I can't wait to go again!!

Yesterday was our two year anniversary! I can't believe that Devin and I have serisouly already been married for two years! (Unfortunately this means that everyone is getting on our case about having kids! My mom can't get enough grandchildren and Cindy is dying to get one!) We both had work yesterday so we celebrated on saturday! I felt bad because Devin had some fun plans that got ruined by the rain but we still had a great day! We went up and spent the day in Salt Lake. Enjoyed some shopping, one of our favorite activities! Then we went to dinner at Tacanos...yum! After dinner we went to the Planetarium and watch an IMAX movie in 3D which was really cool! Basically we just got to hang out all day just the two of us and I loved every second of it!! Sorry once we got to SLC I realized the camera batteries were dead so no pictures this time! But I promise to get better at posting more often! I guess I'll leave a little run down on life for us lately becuase I have been neglecting our little blog. We have been super busy, we just moved out of our apartment and are living with Devin's family for the summer. Everyone thinks that it is so dreadful moving in with family but Devin and I have loved it! It's nice saving rent and having a big kitchen to cook in and always having someone to play with. The only thing I haven't worked out yet is getting Lucy to stop shedding. Haha! Devin is doing an internship at Novell this summer and working for Dad part time. I am working at Primrose Retreat in Spanish Fork so if anyone needs their hair done or wants a lovely day at the spa let me know! Our summer is going to be full of working but we are hoping to get away to Bear Lake and Fish Lake a couple of times and of coarse the famous Brady family reunion! So hopefully I'll have more to blog about soon!

Tulip Festival

On Saturday Devina and I went to to Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point with Devin's brother and his girlfriend. It was lots of fun! I think I enjoyed it so much because it was the first time I really spent time out in the warm sun! I am so ready to kiss winter goodbye. The festival was pretty there was some gorgeous flowers and landscaping but a lot of the flowers hadn't bloomed yet. It was still loads of fun!

Devin and I just got done doing ab ripper X and an arm and back work out with the P90X program. Let me tell you it is very pathetic when your legs hurt worse from the ab work out than your actual abdominal. Oh and my arms feel like jello! It is quite the work out. But the whole time you have this 45 year old man doing triple the work that you are doing so you can't quit!!! It's pretty fun though. I'm starting to get more excited about working out lately because I don't have to do it all inside! I feel way more motivated to work out when it is warm outside!! I can't wait until summer!!!

Dear BYU-
I sincerely wish that you would be kind enough to allow your hard working students to have a spring break! It is terribly sad that every other college allows there students the opportunity to go out and play in the sun for a week! I would greatly appreciate it if you would let my cute hubby have a week off so that I can go somewhere nice and warm with my best friend and enjoy some R&R!! Thank you for your time!
Yours Truly,
Kara Gagon

So life has been interesting lately. I'm done with hair school and still don't have a job! I was talking to Devin the other day, trying to figure out what to do with my life! I love to do hair so much but I know that's not all that I want to do. I want to get back into writing and I am toying with the idea of going back to school. I just don't know what kind of writing I am most interested in. I always thought that poetry was the path for me; I'm not quite sure anymore. I have been thinking about possibly journalism. I'm still up in the air about everything. Devin told me to just start writing. He said to just write until I figure out what i love to write about. So, this is me writing until I can figure out what grabs my interest. So I'm sorry if I bore everyone, but I am going to try and post regularly about...any and everything I can think of. I'm so happy I have an amazing husband who wants nothing more than to make me happy. He always gives me great advice!

i just love him!

My Birthday was this past week! It was fun because I felt like it really lasted all week because we celebrated Monday to Friday! Monday night we went to dinner with Devin's family! Then Wed was my actual birthday. Devin woke me up early and gave me my presents and took me to Kneaders for breakfast...yum! Then Kristen made lunch for me and Kate because it was Kate's birthday too! She made a delicious recreation of Cafe Rio pork salad! Then Thursday night we had dinner at mom and dad's with the fam and it was quite the feast! We had soup and bread bowls with yummy bread sticks and cheese fondue and for dessert instead of cake we did chocolate fondue! (Lets just say I got the wonderful gift of probably 5 extra pounds as well haha) Then Friday night Devin took me out to dinner and then we went and say the new Movie "When in Rome!" I've been really bad at taking pictures so sorry but my cute husband did get a pic of me on my new beach cruiser that I got! So now I just want summer to come even worse! But to sum it all up I had an amazing birthday! I have the most amazing husband and family in the world! Thanks everyone for such a great week!!
