We're Back!

Hey friends! We took a long break from good ol' True Serendipity but we are back! Here are the major highlights from the last year and a half.

We started a YouTube Channel (Summer of 2016) Then we stopped posting on it (just like here, haha). We did end up getting some really fun videos up for an entire summer though, so definitely check that out here if you're interested.  We're going to start working on this again. so stay tuned and subscribe! :) There's going to be a really exciting update on there very soon!




We took a family vacation to Hawaii Yep! Adrienne's best childhood friend, Kelley, got married and made the best decision ever to tie the knot in the most gorgeous location possible. Thanks Kel! So the Kolb/Biehl/Resh/Nelson Clan made a family vacation of it. You can see more about that trip in a blog post and some YouTube Videos. It was such a fun trip, and I think probably the first one that we've ever made all together!



We had visitors Yes, Adrienne's dad came to visit a few times, as well as her sister and Mom. Jason's parents came to visit, and brought with them our cute niece and nephews! Ariel and Kayla come to stay with us every once in awhile and we love that! We love having visitors, so come on by! (I'm sorry if I missed you!)


Jason graduated college! That's right, we're all done at BYU! We loved our time as "students," but we're also definitely happy to be done with that stage of life. And we're still in Provo, so we're still enjoying football games and Provo festivities. After a few stressful months of interviews and searching high and low for the right job for him, he got one with a great company and we're very happy with it! He's been at Bamboo HR for almost a year now.


Adrienne started her own business! I finally found what I'm passionate about and it's nutrition (food, surprise, surprise!). So I found the perfect program for me (Nutritional Therapy Association) and became certified as a Nutritional Therapy Consultant. I now see one on one clients and help them make better food choices and reach their health goals through real food. My company is called Hello Nourished Life. And I love it! (I'm also a nanny and love that as well.)

Visited *almost* all the temples in Utah! This was a goal of ours since we moved here, and we are finally almost done. It was fun because some of them were pretty far (looking at you, Monticello!) and so we made a weekend of it. Like for that one we visited the 4 Corners (Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona), and stayed in a cute B&B. We still have St. George and Cedar City.


We traveled quite a bit! Traveling is important to us, and we're looking forward to doing more and more. Over the last 2 years, we went to Hawaii a few times (once for our anniversary!), Sedona (also for our anniversary!), Colorado (for a nutrition training), San Diego (for a bowl game), Arizona (to visit family and friends) again, Oxnard, CA for the LaGrasta Family Reunion, and of course home to Sonora to see our families. Maybe a few more places. But you can see most of the places on Hello Nourished Life!


We bought a house!!! Probably one of the more exciting updates! Yes, we bought the cutest little (kind of little) home in Provo. It was built almost 100 years ago (99) and has so much character. Come visit, we've got lots of space!


Here's the best update of all, we got a DOG!!! MEET TANK! He is seriously the best. We knew we wanted a dog, but one day in January 2018 we just went to *look* at the humane society and the next day, Tank was ours. He was just too cute and sweet and absolutely ours to not take him home. He loves going on walks, car rides, and he needs all the attention (which we're perfectly fine with). We love him sooo much! He's a Chocolate Lab Mix, and we think the "mix" is Chesapeake Retriever.

Adrienne went to Girls Camp Earlier this year I was called to serve as Young Women President (for those who don't know, in the LDS church, the members are asked to serve in positions that are volunteer, not paid, in order to help things run smoothly). It's a small group of amazing young women that I already love so much. We went to girls camp which was 5 days of no showers, sleeping in A-frame cabins (no electricity or water or anything, literally just boards and nails). It was a wonderful experience! I even learned about snipe hunting (if you don't know what that is, I won't ruin it for you).


We have another exciting update coming, but I'll save that for a separate post soon :)

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for lots more to come from the IncrediBiehls!

Welcome Little Man!

At the end of the month we had a baby shower to welcome Baby Palmer! Kelcie and I have planned many showers together in the last year, so it was so much fun to finally be able to plan hers with the help of some amazing friends! 
Now as I type this, her due date is tomorrow and we are all anxiously awaiting the arrival of that sweet baby boy! 
The shower was a huge success :)

A New Year!

Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2016. It's crazy! Jason started a new semester of school and I started a new job working for Revere Health, a health clinic in our area. It's fun finally getting to use a little bit of all that medical terminology I studied for so long.

January also consisted of lots of snow, lots of friends, and lots of babies. None of our own, unfortunately, but we'll take what we can get.


We love that our friends will share their babies with us :) Aren't they so yummy?!

We also love our traditional Sunday dinners with them. We had this great idea of documenting each week, but we've only documented once. So here it is!
And we're missing the Ninows. We'll have to be better about that. 

Date night at home!

He's the best.

We also got to attend the Provo City Center Temple open house. It was breathtaking.
We are so excited that we have the opportunity to work in this temple once it opens up.

“In the temple, the precious plan of God is taught. It is in the temple that eternal covenants are made. The temple lifts us, exalts us, stands as a beacon for all to see, and points us toward celestial glory. It is the house of God. All that occurs within the walls of the temple is uplifting and ennobling.” - Thomas S. Monson

Vacation from Vacation!

Do you ever get home from vacation and feel so tired and exhausted that you feel like you need a vacation from your vacation? Well we decided we needed that. So we booked a trip to Monterey before we made the trek back to Utah. 
Monday morning after Christmas we left for Monterey. Jason had never been before!! I grew up going with my family and I love that place. 
We started at the Aquarium, because you can't go to Monterey without going to the aquarium. It was fairly crowded because of Christmas Break and all, but we got our fill and enjoyed the otters the most of course.



We had lunch at The Fish Hopper, thanks to Jordan and Magels for the recommendation. 
It was delicious! The clam chowder was the best I've ever had! And my view wasn't bad either :)


It couldn't have been more beautiful while we were there. It was perfect. 


This was just a short walk from our cottage. 






We spent one day in Carmel and it was the CUTEST! I couldn't stop telling Jason how much I loved the quaint little town.




For dinner we both wanted Italian food REAL bad. There were two restaurants we {I} couldn't decide between. We decided on a restaurant called Cibo Ristorante Italiano. And it was a great choice. They had live Jazz music, and the food was just what we were looking for. And we got a free appetizer for checking in on Yelp ;)
A relaxing few days on the coast eating incredible food was just what we needed. 

But wait!! Our trip isn't over yet! 
We took a pit stop in St. George on our way home to see Mark. He had to work some of the time, so we spent a lot of time watching HGTV. But we also got out of the house and explored Snow Canyon National Park. And I'm SO glad we did! It was beautiful!! 






We really ended our vacation with a lunch date with Mark and Dave. 

We had the best Christmas break! 
Family times are the best of times.
