Honeyville, Wicked, and the Fair!

This last week was spent in Honeyville with Brett's Family. He started his internship last week and was getting all the information he would need. It was neat to go with him to meet with the CPA - thanks to my Accounting 101 class I was able to recognize some of the big words they used!

We went to the fair a couple times during the week and enjoyed the rodeo on Thursday. Brett got me the cutest purse- thanks honey! At first he wouldn't even come into the little purse booth area but I gradually broke him down to the point where he would hold out both hands and hold different purses for me so I could compare them side-by-side. I know- such a great husband! We went to the fair again with Laura and Steve and there kids. Jack(3) was so brave going on all the rides I couldn't believe it!

On Saturday all the girls went to Wicked! For our birthdays this year (and next) Mary, Brett's mom, bought us tickets to see the play in Salt Lake. It was amazingly awesome, and we had a great time. The talent was amazing and it was so fun to see the story behind all the songs I have heard for forever. "Defying Gravity" was definitely my favorite song.

Hope everyone is well,

Broulims and the Haunted Swingset

Goodbye Broulims!! That's right. Saturday was Brett's last day at Broulims and on Monday he is starting his internship. We are very happy to be moving on to this next step- one that felt like it was never going to happen! Brett says that he is glad to be leaving Broulims but feels sad to leave some of his friends that are there.

To celebrate Brett's quitting of Broulims we went to Pizza Pie Cafe (more commonly known as Craigos here in Rexburg) and went out to "the haunted swing set". Shout out to those who know what I am talking about :)

Our apartment is being re-carpeted this week so we are trying to be the best engineers possible right now and think of all the creative ways of getting everything off our carpet and into the kitchen and bathroom. It has to be possible right?! We will make it happen! It is one of many many things that we have to do tomorrow morning. Yikes!

We are looking forward to a ward ice cream social tonight. It is so nice when everyone in the ward lives right next door to each other- ward activities can be just right downstairs!

Have a good week!

Whats the Dealio?!


I realize that my blogging has been rather inconstant lately. It's summertime, what can I say?!

This week Brett worked almost everyday. He is coming up on quitting day and it seems like Broulims wants to get the most out of him as they can! They have him training his replacement, which he seems to really enjoy, he gets to show them how to do things the RIGHT way (his way).

Color in Motion 5k has been busy. We are working on getting people to our social media sites and getting the word out about our races! There is a link on the right side of my blog that will take you to the website if you are still confused on what it is that we do.

On Wednesday I was at work and one of the race directors came in with this huge smile on his face and said- do you know what the dealio is today? He got some strange looks from some of the interns that had no idea what dealio is. (It is a texting/email service that offers daily deals at local restaurants.) The dealio on Wednesday was buy one get one free Calzones at 5 buck pizza and buy one get one free at Kiwi Loco. So guess what we did! Yep- we took both dealio offers! I like Kiwi Loco because it reminds me of the now closed down TwizzleBerry where me and Brett had our first date.

We also went and saw Men in Black 3 this weekend. It was funny and witty and cheesy just like the other 2! I will admit I am not the biggest fan of the gross alien things.

So that is our week in a nut shell! I hear that a lot of cousins/neices/nephews/siblings/etc are headed back to school this week, so Good Luck! Especially Doug- because sophomore year of high school can be awesome!

Take Care,

Bingham Bear Lake Reunion

This week we spent time with Brett's family at Bear Lake! It was so much fun seeing all the nieces and nephews... yep all 11 of them under the same roof! This doesn't happen very often and I am so glad we got to see everyone.

We spent a lot of time out on the boat, Brett loved the wake boarding/surfing and was getting pretty good at it by the end. I was content just watching. I did let the guys talk me in to some tubing, which was fun! Me and Brett got to watch some Olympics for the first time since they started... go team USA! Brett bought me a famous Bear Lake raspberry shake which was delicious. It was a quick trip, but packed with fun. Brett was not as diligent with the sun screen this time around and is pretty red. Between that and the sore muscles I can only imagine how much he is enjoying work right now.

It is nice to enjoy the summer with family. It has been a great 7 week break so far and many adventures yet to come!

Take Care,

Sheree Bingham

Brett and Steve are in the water trying to anchor the boat with a big rock.
