#CatchTheMoment365; Week 33

day228; aug16ab

Week 33, I made it! AND I think if I get it posted tonight it’s still within the “official” week for #CatchTheMoment365!  Yay me!

This week included the funeral of my Grandma.  It was a sad time of mourning, but also a fun and exciting time to reconnect with family I don’t see very often.  Flying out on Wednesday I never would have expected that this turned into a great trip with lots of wonderful memories.

One of the most memorable parts of the trip is when we headed back to the family farm to celebrate my Grandma’s amazing life!  I have blogged about the farm in the past and how it’s been in my mom’s family for nearly 100 years, but if you missed it you can read and see pictures of the inside of the farm HERE and the outside of the farm HERE!

The end of this post includes a massive mailing I assisted with at work.  Our new Communications Specialist, Stephanie, redesigned the quarterly Eastside Baby Corner print newsletter and it turned out fantastic!  Not only is it gorgeous, but it brings a new level of professionalism to EBC.  Everyone I have talked to is absolutely blown away by the new look!  If you are interested in learning more about Eastside Baby Corner and want to check-out Eastside Baby Corner’s 2014 Summer newsletter click HERE!

This week was a great one!

How does this work?  Everyday I am posting a new pic to Instagram, Twitter and my personal Facebook page with the hash tags #365DaysofCori and the official challenge hash tag #catchthemoment365.  On Friday’s I will do a recap of the previous week’s photos and *hopefully* give a little more insight into each one, why I took them and any history behind them.

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 32

day226, aug14a

I’m slowly catching up with the #CatchTheMoment365 weekly blog posts as I post Week 32 tonight.  My goal is to be caught up next weekend and post Week 34 during Week 34!  What a concept!  Stay tuned for Week 33 to be posted early next week!  In the meantime, Week 32:

This week involved a lot of car trouble for Brandi, maybe car trouble isn’t the right term, extremely bad luck might be better!  First her car is t-boned, then she has to deal with the other driver’s idiotic insurance company, she borrows my Grandma’s car and it completely dies on her and when the car is fixed (in record time I might add!) the mechanic locks the keys in the car.  It was a bad week for Brandi; the bright side of the story is she got a new car!

The other top story of Week 32 was heading down to Salt Lake City for my Grandma’s funeral.  This post covers the first couple of days of our trip including the stressful trip down, but then some fun family time!

Week 32 was definitely a memorable one for me!

Psst…tomorrow is my birthday!!  I’m so excited!!

#CatchTheMoment365; Week 31

post-day-215-august3_thumb.png

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind for me and my blogging took a backseat.  My Grandma passed away on August 7th after a long and courageous battle with cancer, leaving behind an amazing legacy and memories.

With the passing of my Grandma, an unexpected trip to Salt Lake City and her funeral, Week 31 never got written or published, actually at this point I’m late with Week 32 as well.  Family is much more important than my blog, but while I am delayed publishing Week 31 and 32, I didn’t miss a day of photos.  Stay tuned over the next couple of days for another catch-up post plus Week 33.

Memorial Day Visit {Final Idaho Post!}

My Grandma and Aunt have a yearly Memorial Day tradition, to visit the cemetery where my great-grandparents and grandfather were buried.  This year, my mom, sister & I were in Idaho over Memorial Day and we had the opportunity to tag along. 

This was the first visit at the cemetery, for me, since my Grandpa was buried eight years ago.  It was bittersweet going back.  I enjoyed being there to honor my loved ones and it was a beautiful afternoon to enjoy time with my family.

{OUTSIDE} At The Farm

So it’s been a few “tomorrow’s” since I posted the {Inside} At The Farm photos and promised the {After} At The Farm photos … well they are finally here and ready to be posted!!

After having fun getting reacquainted with Aunt Karla & Uncle Tom, hearing old stories about my mom’s childhood, we ventured outside to see the outside of this beautiful farm!!  It had been probably a decade, since my family’s last trip to the Farm, but I was happy to see that it hadn’t changed much.  In fact, according to my Grandma (who was born in this house) and my mom (who spent many summers visiting), the farm hadn’t changed very much at all!

So now for the long anticipated photos of {OUTSIDE} At The Farm!

Crazy Days of Summer *Refreshing*

Ahhhh … this quarter is so close to being done!!  I’m doing final editing on my last essay.  As soon as I submit it, it’s summer vacation and I CANNOT WAIT!

Just in time for …

 

This week’s theme is refreshing!  I figured most people were going to be posting water related photos, but being the “not follow the group” kinda girl, I once again looking at the theme slightly differently {I assume!} then other people!!  Again, I return to my Memorial Day weekend in Idaho!  On Tuesday I posted {Inside} At The Farm and promised the next day I would post the {outside} photos – well that didn’t happen, darn finals got in the way!  So now I’m sorta posting photos from that day, but there are a lot more beautiful photos of the outside of the farm – Did I mention the view is amazing?!  You’ll have to stop by again {maybe Saturday or Sunday} for more pictures of {Outside} At The Farm!

What is more refreshing then spending an afternoon in a beautiful local swinging and reminiscing about your childhood??  That’s what my mom, Alex, Aunt Leslie & I did for an hour last Sunday afternoon!

Memorial Day Weekend Crazies!

Going on vacation is always so much fun, but coming home is even better!!

For Memorial Weekend, I flew down to visit my Grandma and Aunt in Salt Lake City along with my mom, sister and another aunt. From Salt Lake we drove up to Idaho, to a small town where we had NO wifi, except at the hotel. We were there to put together and run a huge estate sale for my mom’s aunt who passed away a few months ago. We sold 80% of the items in her house and made a lot of money! It was sooo much fun! A lot of work, but so worth it!! I tried to pop into the media world in the evenings, but by then I was so exhausted I dropped!

I have a ton of photos that were taken while we were working and visiting family in the area, but it’s not going to happen this evening!  I’m just happy I got this post up!!  Hopefully, I’ll get the photos up over the next few days, but on top of a busy weekend, this week is finals for me :(  Not sure how much “me” time I’ll have, good news is this time next week I should be done! Bring on summer vacation!!

Canyon Day

Hello Everyone and Greetings from home! Not long after I posted my Seven Peaks Waterpark pictures, I ended up going to the ER to get my foot and ankle X-Rayed and for some medication for the pain. It doesn’t appear that my ankle is broken, but badly sprained and possibly torn ligaments. I’ll go back to my doctor this week to get it re-checked. Here are a couple pictures my mother took of me (& Alex) waiting in my room at the hospital.

I was supposed to fly home on Friday evening, but because of my ankle I wasn’t able to so I got to got to see Emily, Adam, and their adorable girls Katelyn (4) and Hailey (2) in addition to Aunt Penny and David again. Friday evening we went up to the Canyon for dinner…Thanks Alex for taking pictures because I was a bit drugged and out of it!
