Grey's River//Alpine, Wyoming

Alan and I (and Huckleberry!!!) love the outdoors. So as soon as the weather permits, a camping we will go. For Memorial Day weekend we decided to head up to Grey's River in Alpine, Wyoming. It's only about an hour and a half from where we live and just out of cell service. It's just what we needed. Here's to a fulfilling and fun past few days....
 The drive there goes through Swan Valley which is where they are famous for square ice cream cones. I will admit, we stopped on the way home too.. haha. I love me some ice cream and my husband humbly obliges. 
 We found the absolute, most perfect camp spot right on the river with the perfect amount of shade. 
 Before dinner we went for a little walk up the mountain. Absolute stunning views.
 Huck is our trail boss. He is the best scout around. When we are falling behind, he will always stop and wait patiently. 
 For dinner our first night we had tinfoil dinners. I'm gonna say this style of eating is on my top five list. There is nothing like eating campfire cooked food.
We had potatoes, hamburger and veggies...All cooked to perfection. 

Sleep time and on to the next day. We got a late start, enjoyed our morning and had breakfast! 
Then we headed to go on a hike. We went six miles total. To be honest, we went about as far as the trail would let us go until we just hit too much snow and fallen trees. That was fun though because we felt we had the whole place to ourselves. Which is the truth, we did. 
 Huck cracks us up. He loves to just lay down in the water to cool off. And let me tell you, it was COLD water. 
 Lunch in a remote, beautiful spot.
 There were a handful of beautiful wildflowers of several different colors and kinds. Alan picked this one for me. He is the sweetest. 
 After our hike, we headed down the road to Water Dog lake. Huck enjoys retrieving sticks Alan will throw out into the water. It was so beautiful and peaceful.
 Headed back to camp for some relaxation, roasted hot dogs, and smores. I had to snap this pic of Huck because he was totally pooped. It was a great day.
 The next morning we had a yummy breakfast and closed up camp. A quick trip but so fun.
Grey's River!! We will be back......




I was recently introduced to this small company called R.Riveter and have to tell you about it. The company was started by two military spouses who met and shared the frustrations of how difficult it was to maintain a good, flexible income with moving around so much. So with a sewing machine in a small attic came R.Riveter. They wanted to create a genuine American made product. So each of their bags are hand made by a military spouse!! They have just 30 local employees and 27 remote workers on their team. A small company with a beautiful purpose. Not to mention their bags are amazing quality. I can certainly look at this gem proudly and see the love that went into it!! Read more about them HERE.
FYI: You can use code "runstylerun" now through June 30, 2017 for 10% off any of their signature collection bags!! My bag is called the Otto. It has several pockets which makes it the perfect everyday bag. Highly highly recommend. Go give them some love!

A Few Natural Skin Care Product Recommendation

It has been three months since my last review with Mad Hippie skin care. Want to know the best thing about it? I just this week needed to replenish just my cream cleanser. It has lasted me over three months. (When I did my first review, I had been using the products for two weeks already.) Mad Hippie has only gotten better for me. My skin LOVES it. I haven't had one bit of dry skin (I have really dry skin ALWAYS) and my blemishes have been minimal. 
I originally started using the Vitamin A Serum, which I really liked...but then switched to the Exfoliating Serum and I wouldn't use anything else now. I have blemish prone skin and I feel it really helps with that. I can literally feel it working when I get a blemish. Also, when I do get one, they're really small and only last a day or so. Please, if you're looking for a great skin cleanser, go no further! This is all natural and feels so great on my skin. It is a little pricy in the initial start of it. (Around $80-$100 depending on how many products you want.) But over the time I've had it and how a little goes a long way, it is completely worth it and monthly cost is really low. I would recommend starting with the Cream Cleanser, the Exfoliating Serum, and the Face Cream. These three are my everyday "go-to" products. I have a couple of others (the face oil and the eye cream) but the first three are my must haves.

In my journey to kinda switch my skin products to all natural products I have also added a new product called Lavido into my routine. 
Their products are all organic and natural. I got some of their body wash and lotion. Obsessed. Smells amazing. I feel super clean after using. It is light and never harsh to use.  The Tea Tree soap bar is PERFECT for traveling and smells so so good. My regular routine I have been using their Patchouli and Vanilla Body wash and the Aromatic Body lotion in the same scent which I have absolutely loved. In fact, I just ran out of the lotion so I need to restock hehe.  As with Mad Hippie, Lavido products require very little to go a long way. I have been using them for two months and am only needing the lotion because I got a tester size to make sure I liked it. Otherwise the body wash isn't even close to needing replacement. I highly recommend giving them a shot!
Side note: these are all fantastic products for travel. Easy to store and no problems with leaking. I took them to Lake Powell and they traveled well.



Lake Powell 2017

We just got back from the most amazing trip to Lake Powell with our Walker side family. (Not all of them... sadly.) It was so relaxing and fun. I put my phone away for the entire time there and it was heaven. The photos speak for themselves. It is a magical place that you're often pinching yourself that it's real and you're really there. It has become one of my favorite places on Earth.
 The most perfect road trip shoes from Emu Australia. Oh so comfy. 
 My husband is the cutest. He was captain of the houseboat most of the time.
 Our houseboat's name is Here Comes The Sun.
 My cute fly fisherman husband.
 Everyone loves Grandma and Grandpa. Thank you Frank and Traci for such a fun trip for the family!!
 Alan and my brother-in-law Colton going off the slide.
 Yes, I am aware of Alan's duct tape hat. He says it serves its purpose. hehe
 Stopping off for a little hike.
 ^^He is my all and everything and every happiness.
 Kya was cracking us up. She has such a fun imagination (as do all the kiddos.) She was playing doggie.
 Kya (3) and Maci (8) being brave going off the slide!
 And Kristin (24). wink wink
 This was the view from our houseboat. I woke up to this every morning. Surreal huh!
 Sunday Miracle Beach. We named it that. We got lost for an evening from a few of our crew. It was stressful to say the least but turned out ok in the end.
Definitely went by way way way too fast. Can't wait to go again.
