Wade and I are running a half marathon in Salt Lake on Saturday morning so to prepare we are eating a very large bag of Swedish Fish with Rebecca tonight (Thursday). Good friends sign up for endurance events with you. Best friends over-feed you candy right before those events happen.

And now, your Pictures & Distractions:

I've been sending threatening pictures from Annie's office, demanding that she return from maternity leave because it has been going on for an eternity or I'll destroy all of her things. Also I got new glasses. Hashtag selfie.

It snowed for 24 hours in Salt Lake City yesterday. When I got to work I found a snowball in my pocket. I'm not sure exactly how this happened. 

My poor trees. 

I posted this picture of this ironwood carving from Palau on the Instagrams. My friend Corey then texted me to tell me that this picture looks like the carving is sitting on the floor and is gigantic. Then @liveviaashley commented that it looked like "a large chocolate house . . . left in [my] doorway." I don't know. But I feel like this should be the new black/gold/blue/white dress picture.
