1. Scarves
I've never been a fan of scarves until this winter.  They not only keep you warm, but they're a great way to add spice to an outfit.  I just recently bought a black and gold scarf from Express that I'm currently IN LOVE with.

2. Boots
I love the winter because I get to pull out all my boots.  Lately, my favorite have been the crocheted uggs.  I've never been the biggest fan of uggs, but with these there are two ways to wear them.  High, or folded over low... I found red ones at Forever Young.

3. Pureology
I'm really picky when it comes to hair products.  Even though pureology is pretty expensive, it's well worth the money.  Their products are amazing!  My favorite is the shampoo and conditioner.  It's got the minty smell and leaves your scalp tingling.

4. Amika Straightener
This past summer I bought an Amika straightener and instantly fell in love.  Not only because it's red leopard print but because of how my hair looks after.  It leaves your hair looking silky and with the small 1 inch you can easily use it to curl too.  I used to have a chi, but there is no comparison.  The chi fried my hair.  I highly recommend an Amika Straightener.

5. Vests
For those of you that didn't know, I used to work at Buckle.  I continue to enter their store on what seems to be a daily basis.  They always have the cutest vests.  They're a fun way to dress up a boring long sleeve shirt.

6. Can Can
For Christmas I got Paris Hilton's Can Can perfume.  I've never been a fan of her scents until now.  It's got a sweet but subtle smell.

7. Acrylic Nails
Sorry for the horrible picture.  I tried to find a cute picture online, but I thought mine looked the best.  I've been going to this same lady for years.  She can do a double fill (like the picture below with blue and white) and she's an amazing artist.  If you're ever in town, let me know!  I'll make you an appointment :)

8. High Heels
For those of you that really know me, you know I love to wear high heels.  Yes, I probably have one too many pair, but I can't resist.  It's even hard for me to find guys I like to date because they HAVE to still be taller than me when I throw on a pair of heels.  Here's a pair I recently bought at the Buckle (of course!)...

9. Golds Gym
This past summer my mom bought me a golds gym pass and I try to go as many times during the week as I can.  I go to the worlds largest Golds in Provo, Utah and it's got just about everything you could need.  For Christmas I got a personal trainer and I can't wait to get started!

10. Jazz
Sure it hasn't been the best season for the Jazz so far, but I'll always enjoy watching the games.  They've had a hard time keeping everyone healthy this season as well.  I don't think we've played with the full starting line up once.  Carlos Boozer has been a BABY and missed his 20th game in a row tonight.  HELLO -- trade him!

Thanksgiving in Maui!

It was so much fun to be with the whole family this past week for Thanksgiving.  I've missed my parents and Kurtis so much since I've been out of the house.   When we first showed up, it was raining and after looking at it said that it was supposed to rain ALL week.  We were all pretty disappointed but knew to make the best of it.  HOWEVER, it didn't rain one drop after that first night.  It was over all a PERFECT week.  Ryan, Cortnee and I even got to stay an extra two days because our flight was cancelled due to some broken parts.  United paid for us to stay at the Hyatt. . .can't complain.  The only bad part was that we arrived at about 8 am on Monday morning meaning we had to rush straight to school.

Here are some pictures from the week...

They had a machine by the pool (like at build a bear) and Katelyn made a dolphin and they named it Maui.  How cute.

Kurtis and I at the Luau!

Worlds cutest nieces!  Whitney and Katelyn

The newlyweds. . . Cortnee and Ryan
