Ice Castles

The Midway Ice Castles are absolutely breathtaking. If you have the opportunity- GO! I don’t remember seeing them when I was going to school in Utah, or I feel like I totally would have gone. I’m so grateful I had the opportunity to make it out there. It is right near Park City, too, so we did the ice castles for about an hour and then spent the rest of the time in Park City. A lot of  people at work were asking about the castles. Check out their website HERE!

Tickets sell out online and apparently if they’re sold out online, you can’t buy them at the ice castles, so I would purchase them early. I would book it for earlier in the day than later. Once you’re in, you can stay as long as you want, but if you go earlier there are probably going to be less people. There are mazes and slides and even concessions you can buy. We were just in awe at the beauty of the ice castles, though. We had never seen anything like it! You really start to feel like you’re actually in the movie Frozen.

What I wore- I wore my beautiful red coat from J. Crew which is perfect for all things Christmas + clearly ice castles. I also love layering collar shirts under sweaters, so I have a collared chiffon shirt with little gray polka dots under a soft off-white sweater from Forever 21. Oh, and of course my pom pom hat from Nordstrom. <3

I hope everyone is loving love this Valentine’s Day! What a wonderful reason to celebrate.

XOXO,

To Grandmother’s House We Go…

We are on our way to Grandma’s house this week for Thanksgiving, so here’s a little throw back to last year around this time, when we went to Grandma’s house. Who else is SO excited?!

This past weekend was amazing. Nick and I popped into St. George to go see Mia in her high school play. She was part of the ensemble for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat, and she rocked it. She sang and danced with so much energy, and she looked beautiful on stage. It made me want to sing and dance more! Also, we had musical songs stuck in our heads all weekend, and we would all frequently break out into song. It was so fun. I love being home.

Also,I finally have a phone again, so I’m happy for that! Two more days of work and then more family time! Hooray!

XOXO,

Alyse

Fall leaves


After church, we headed for the canyon to see the beaUTAHful fall leaves. ???Like how beautiful is this world we live in? Seriously took a million photos, but every corner we turned was another breath-taking view. Not to mention the weather has been perfect! 

Also, I have been thinking about bloggers that I love to follow, and holy cow! They may be getting all of their posts sponsored, but the rest of us can’t afford that lifestyle!! I’ve always loved fashion… via the sale rack. So…if anyone cares I will occasionally say where I got stuff. ?

  • Dress: Ross under $20
  • Shoes: Walmart $10
  • Hat: Forever 21, $12
  • Liquid Lipstick: Revolution, Velvet, $5

Well, we have had the BEST weekend ever & are so sad to leave. Until next time, beautiful Utah! Thanks for dressing up in your Sunday best for us. ?

Xoxo,
