Top Ten Countdown

Time for a summer re-cap for the Miller Memo! As a special bonus, I'll even include a sneak peak at fall so far. This might take forever so leave me a comment or I may never blog again. Just kidding. But seriously... Let the countdown begin! {drumroll}

#10 Summer Weddings
...Am I the only one out there who feels like there was at least one wedding to attend every weekend this summer? I guess it's that time in our lives. We had a lot of fun seeing a lot of our good friends tie the knot.

#9 I had a BIRTHDAY!
... More like a birth week...or weeks. I turned 22 this summer and sure had fun. A few days before my day, lovely LeeAnn Hyer came down and took me to dinner and we grabbed gelato. The next day the Miller clan met up in Salt Lake to celebrate at dinner.

My good friend/practically brother Brock Francis got married to the beautiful Kenna on my birthday so we spent most of the day with them. We went to Bountiful for their sealing that morning and it was beautiful. For their luncheon, they served Robintinos pizza. Anytime we go to a wedding now, Jon always talks about how awesome that luncheon was. That's a man for you--enough of the fancy little wedding food--just fill me up with something tasty! After we stuffed our faces with pizza, we turned around a few hours later just to go to the Mandarin in Bountiful with my family for Chinese. Don't worry, I saved room for treats at Brock's reception too. {Its a wonder I didn't gain 22 birthday pounds this week.}

On the way back to Provo, we stopped at Kevin and Michelle's place. They made me a cake. Did I mention the treat overload yet? When we returned home for the evening, Jon sent me on a scavenger hunt around our apartment complex ending with some fun new shirts and a massage/spa package. A couple days later, Kayla took me for frozen yogurt too. Trrrrreatss...

#8 Fourth of July in K-Town
...There is no 4th of July like a Kaysville one. You Davis Darts know what I'm sayin! After a fun parade of floats, the whole city breaks it down in an all-out city water fight. It just doesn't get better than this. Complete the day with a bbq, nap time, and a patriotic fireworks show and you're good to go.

Loved spending the day with my sister

#7 Hangin with J&T
...Jared and Tonya were in town and I certainly wanted to take advantage of the time to hang out with them. After dinner at the Olive Garden, we girls tried to convince the boys to take us out for a night on the town. We settled for hanging out on Jon's parent's porch. Oh well-what can you do? Funny how we probably had just as much fun.

#6 The Next Food Network Star
...Our place was a hot spot every Sunday night this summer for the Next Food Network Star. Jon and I got really into the show last summer right after we got married and had to spread the word this time around. All the guys initially pretended that the idea of getting together to eat food and discuss the show at every commercial break was a dumb idea, but even they were converted after the first episode.

#5 New Members Of The Fam
...Congratulations to Jared and Tonya. T {aka superwoman} carried and delivered a approximately 13 lb. baby! I can't remember exactly how big our little man was, but wow! We were so happy to share a few days with this little guy while they were in town. Also very excited about the news of our new niece-to-be. Big Congrats to Josh and Val.

#4 SkyWest Lagoon Day
... When my dad mentioned his employee Lagoon Day, it took about two seconds to convince us. I haven't been to Lagoon for ages. It was a riot. Danielle brought her cute boyfriend Taylor Gurney and we had a blast. The last hour at the park, we sprinted from ride to ride to maximize our fun. Good times.

Love these guys


This is what happens when you line-jump

#3 Work
... Had another fun summer with Sugar Sweet Corn. I spent most of my days getting to know the construction workers and farm folk of good ol' Springville, Utah. It was a little creepy how many people knew me by name... I think that's probably a sign I've been at the little red wagon a bit too long. Nevertheless, I love it. Now thats the produce season is over, I am back to babysitting for these cute kiddos and now working as a TA for a couple classes at BYU.

Little man

Cute moment.

#2 Cougar Football
...You all know I love my Cougs. This year we were lucky enough to snag season tickets on Row One on the 40 yard line on the East side of the stands. We are loving it. We sit right behind the Defense and love to watch Logan and Eason getting the crowd pumped up. Sitting with the usual football crew {Nate, Briana, Phil, and Angela-we miss Todd and Jess} as well as Tyler and Paige. We also sold a set of tickets to a guy named Scott and his son Tanner who we already love.

#1 Witches Night Out @ Gardner Village
...This was a riot. Erica and I decided to get our girl on and go do some shopping! I wish I would have taken more photos of all the different versions of witch costumes up there. The place was so crowded! We got lucky and got there at the same time as Yvonne and Christina so we could mingle together and make fun of all the slutty witch costumes. Seriously ladies, this is an ALL WOMEN event. What's with all the cleavage? Sorry, I got sidetracked. Where was I? I ran into two beautiful ladies that I haven't seen for awhile and got to chat. My only sadness was that my attempts to meet up with Kimmy and Marley failed because it was so crowded. Still, between cheesy potato soup and the cackling emcees, I really just couldn't get enough of this night.

Love these ladies!
