Rock Climbing

Last weekend we went rock climbing at momentum with my brother Chris and his date, and my cousins Ashley and Dan. It was a blast!! We learned how to belay each other which I had never done before. I was surprised with how out of shape I was. Being a soccer player my arms never really get a workout... but boy did this work out your arms! It was funny that I think belaying was actually more tiring then climbing itself!

Jon climbed the "Crack" and made it all the way to the top! we were soo proud of him! I have no idea how someone could climb that but he did! Dan had fun swinging while Jon was climbing. haha gotta love that boy!

Gotta love this game

We had an outdoor soccer game last night. The score was 0-0 and the other team kicked the ball over the fence into the parking lot. We picked up a different soccer ball, threw it in, dribbled and scored. Next thing we know the other team is crying "we weren't ready!" Seriously? What were you doing jumping in the mud puddles or looking at the birds?? Then the Ref asked how we would feel about not counting the goal. Um having that goal would make us in the lead, but since we are better human beings we decided to let them have it. We are now winning 4-1 with 5 minutes left in the game and after the other team complaining about everything they start doing hand balls and fouling us like crazy. Oh don't worry the Ref's let them do it "because we are winning." Wow. I know this is county soccer but seriously? I'm glad we can win games with our integrity and skills.

Saturday we had an indoor game in woods cross. We pull up to the building and are greeted by this awful smell. I get out of the car and Jon said "Bre don't step in the water"... oh? "It isn't water." Lovely. Their sewer is overflowing and is on the field. Yes... we did play on sewer infested soccer field that day. Never have I felt so disgusting in my life. But hey you just gotta love this game!

Day 9: A Place You Love


I cannot think of a place that I would have loved to be raised other than Seattle. It is an amazing city. I really believe it has shaped who I am and if I were raised in Utah I would not be the same person. Seattle has such an easy going spirit about it and non judgemental and I believe that is why I am the same way. It is easy being yourself in Seattle since everyone there is unique. I am sooo happy that Jon was able to see where I grew up last year and the placed that made me who I am today. I will always have a special place in my heart for Seattle!!

day 8: a hobby of yours

Hobby #1: Soccer

Ever since I started playing soccer in 4th grade it has been a release for me. Sometimes you just really need to kick something and soccer is perfect for that! I just love the game! Jon and I play on an Indoor and Outdoor team with our friends and it's what I look forward to every week. Being able to hang out with friends, play a sport I love, exercise, and get a good competitive attitude twice a week is what I live for! Sometimes I wish I was back in Jr.High and High School where my life was soccer and that's all I did... I miss those days but I guess we all have to move on dont we?

Hobby #2 - Anything water sports

I love water sports! There's nothing like swimming on a hot day, or hiking down to a water fall in hawaii, or wakeboarding surrounded by beautiful red rocks!

day 7: an animal you'd love to keep as a pet

I have always thought having a bear would be an awesome pet. When they are cubs they are absolutely adorable! And just like those tigers that live with monks, I'm sure if you have them since they were cubs they'd learn to grow up with you and be careful with you?? Either way it would be a dream come true to hold a bear cub!!

Day 5: Your Parents

My Dad:
I think I get alot of my goofiness from my dad. He is caring but then also just loads of fun. I know there's nothing that my dad wouldn't do for me. I'm a sucker for my dad; if I don't know the answer my dad surely does.

My Mom:
My Mom is my best friend. She's the first I call for everything and anything. I love going home to her house everyday for lunch and just hanging out. It definitely gets me through the day. Her cooking is also fabulous! Now that I have my own home and have to cook I appreciate her cooking much more. She does so much for our family and is always the one looking out for everyone.
