Laura and Ashley Blog - RETIRING

Hello fellow bloggers, as you probably know, Ashley and I have decided to "retire" this blog, archive it (for memories) and move on to separate, but equally entertaining blogs. Keep this on your blog roll, for just like our love for each other, it will never go away. When you "google," Laura and Ashley - this will still be the first website that pops up - and we want to keep it that way. 

new blogs:

Laura's food blog -

Thanks for reading.

Ashley's one and only contribution to the blog...

So I broke down and started my own blog. If ya'll are interested, feel free to check out my blog @

Love you all.

The start of a new blog....

I've started another blog, and its all about food. I've wanted to put a "recipe blog" up for a while now, and so now my obsession with cooking and all things food-related is being put out into the world. Check it out, comment, post some recipes of your own, etc. etc.....

The name was Cort's idea - so you can thank him for its awesome-ness. Also, I kind of dedicate the blog to him because he eats all my experiments with a smile on his face whether they are horrible or not.

I miss Ashley.

And that's all I have to say about that.

My parents are so cool.

My mom and dad have spent most of the summer in Canada, at Campbell (ironic, huh?) River and Rivers Inlet in British Columbia. They are such diehards.

True Life.

I've been back home in Utah, "on break" before I move again for a few weeks now. Is it ironic now that I have all this time on my hands, I have no time to write? Yes, I've posted a few pictures here and there, but a friend of mine pointed out that she still has no idea what is going on in my life.

I have two reasons for this, neither which is a good excuse, but true nonetheless. One being, that is is almost as if I can only function when my life is moving a million miles a minute. The more down time I have, the lazier I become. I push everything back to the point at the end of the day when I ultimately say, "Eh...I'll have plenty of time to do it tomorrow." This has become a constant cycle, and a quite annoying one at that. Secondly, I don't like writing much about myself or my real life - I like to stick with stories with the main focus being on other people, or something funny that happened to me or Ashley.
I've gotten good feedback. So that's what I do.

In order to counteract this problem, I've decided to let you all in on my secret dreams. I'm having been thinking a lot about them lately, and thought I'd share. These are my goals in life:
  • Be a student...forever. I think we should all be students for life and continue educating ourselves for as long as we can. So until I run out of money, that's what I'm doing. In other words, I'm putting off a career as long as possible.
  • Learn to play the guitar. I have a recurring dream that I play the guitar while Ashley sings at Carlee's wedding. I really want to make that happen.
  • Speak Spanish, fluently.
  • Become a long-distance runner. A marathoner, of sorts. I can't seem to make it past 3 miles, but I'll get there.
  • Become a certified Bikram yoga instructor and open my own studio.
  • Open a bakery and win one of those Betty Crocker contests that they always play on the Food Network Channel. Better yet...become the next Betty Crocker.
  • Write a book.
  • Start a non-profit organization.
  • Get rid of my car and rely solely on public transportation/bike/scooter/feet.

Those are just a few. I figure if I write them down, maybe I will actually make some of them happen.

What are your secret/not so secret dreams?

I had the pleasure this weekend to babysit Erin and Miah's son, and my favorite little muscle man, Hudson. It turned into Hudson-mania once he came over, and my sisters and I decided that he is the cutest boy there ever was. We had so much fun with him, and I never wanted him to leave. Thanks Erin, for making my summer. 

It took me forever to get this shot. He was much cleaner when he got to my house then he was when he left. Sorry Erin!!
Hudson, beating me in chess. He loved the animal chess pieces.
Hudson, trying to call his mom to tell her that I was smothering him.

Hudson, now trying to text his mom to tell her I was smothering him.
