it recently hit me that i finish school in april and nick has just less than two years left. which means we won't be tied to utah for that much longer. while it is such a beautiful state and has both of our families here, it's not where either of us want to settle down and raise our own family. i've lived here since i was two and want a new adventure. and i think nick just misses the coast too much to always be so far away from it (he was born and raised in southern california). we're not looking to leave utah and never come back but i do really want to take advantage of all the amazing things to do here that i've taken for granted and never bothered to do. hence, the bucket list of things i want to do while i still live in utah:

+ hike mount timpanogos
+ visit the spiral jetty
+ hiking and rock climbing at zion's
+ go to the aquarium
+ visit arches national park

and for any newbies to utah here's a list of things i have done that i highly recommend:

+ attend a movie at the sundance film festival
+ snowboard/ski (out of the resorts i've been to brighton is my favorite)
+ boating at lake powell
+ fly fishing
+ go on the natural rock slide
+ hike to some hot pots
+ mona lake rope swing
+ free outdoor movies at the red butte amphitheater
+ hogle zoo
+ tulip festival at thanksgiving point
+ float down the provo river
+ attend a real salt lake soccer game
+ the clark planetarium
+ laser floyd (a laser show to pink floyd music)
+ timpanogos caves
+ temple square at christmas time
+ alpine slide and coaster
+ drive the alpine loop (preferably in the fall time or on a motorcycle)

p.s. if you know of anything i should add to my list please comment below and let me me know!
