pretty tahoe pictures and my pretty puppy and a pretty big accomplishment

i dare you to tell me that dottie is not the cutest thing in the whole wide world. just kidding, cause if you tell me that i won't like you anymore. but seriously, she's beautiful and i love her. these first couple pics are courtesy of roberta, when they were here visiting. amazing pictures. tyler and i were dying and trying to pick which one of dottie we are going to blow up and frame. we're infertile... give us a break.

okay from here down is the big accomplishment that i have yet to blog about. tyler and i climbed mt. tallac a couple weeks ago. for those of you who don't know, it's real real hard. you basically climb up the face of a mountain. and i'm talking a tahoe mountain. i grew up hiking, but i never thought i could or would do tallac. and i did it!! i was so so proud of myself, but also couldn't walk for like 2 days after. i was on a 'i can do anything' high for like a week after. it was awesome. and for some reason the pics look blurry- but you get the idea.

on the way down, which you would think would be easy, but is so hard!

one of the two lakes on the way up.

this is the mountain we climbed to
the top of.

this is at the top... there are a million chipmunks that are not afraid of people and dottie was going nuts... notice ty's death grip on her. she literally would have jumped off the cliff to get one.

view from the top. b-e-a-utiful.

'merry christmas from the boice's!' there... now you all got our card.

this snuck in at the bottom.

ps- we are so excited cause cortney and ashley and fam are coming this week!! i blog it and it happens- yay! so i better get cleaning and washing sheets.

happy birthday to my mom

today is my mom's birthday... and incidentally it is also the anniversary of my baptism 20 years ago. i miss my mom, but i am not sad today. it is a deliciously cozy day. cloudy and on and off rainy. it has been amazing rainy/thunder/lightning weather the last couple of days and i am in heaven. i love love it. there is almost nothing i love more in this world than a thunder and lightning storm.
i feel so happy. you might think this is strange considering that i am on day 3 of low carb, but i am.
also i had an awesome birthday. we went to six flags, stayed the night at a cool hotel in berkeley, and went to san francisco the next day. i am officially 28. 28 feels good.
btw- i had to cancel my doc appt., but it's all good... more on that later.
i am also so excited for the holidays (including halloween). can't wait.
family: just so you're aware of our intentions, we will be in utah for thanksgiving and idaho for christmas. can't wait.
also, ashley boice... you have a sweet minivan now... there are no excuses for you guys to not be here. we miss you. remember, cream cheese is not a carb, so we're good to go. Oh!! i just realized that i can have stuffed mushrooms on my diet. yesssss.
sorry i'm rambling right now. there is more to blog, but i gots to get ready for work.
