Looking for a House...

Yes, we've begun the slow, painful process of first-time home buyers. If you know any great houses or deals around the Point of the Mount area (Highland, Alpine, Lehi, Draper, Riverton, Herriman, Bluffdale, etc.) let us know!

THE BED!!!!!!

So... this is our VERY LARGE bed in our VERY SMALL room! I know, it took me a long time to finally get these pictures on here. But it took me FOREVER to finish the bedding! So here it is, finally posted. Adam made the bed frame, isn't it amazing! He made it out of antique doors we bought a year ago in Scipio. Notice the door handle plate in the bottom? He did a fantastic job, and made our side tables to match. He is so talented. I'm so lucky to have a handyman around!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Babe! For real this time! Be safe on your trip, and if you get cold, just snuggle up next to Kevy :) Oh, by the way, Pete is so proud of his TV, he's showing everyone! So, instead of constantly sending him the pic i took for him on my phone, thought I'd just post a picture of his new plasma. He LOVES it!

Adam's "Birthday"

Since Pete is going to be hunting on his birthday, we decided to celebrate it the weekend before. I had an early day off at work to attend my friend's sealing on Friday, so I got to surprise Adam, which NEVER happens! I had worked out to get a 42" plasma to my parent's house that I had bought for his birthday and my pregnant little sister helped me get it to our house and set it up. I bought a yummy looking birthday cake and made him chili and cornbread, as per Pete's request. He was so excited as he walked through the door after work and saw his new plasma! He's wanted one since we got married and right now was the perfect time to get one. We rented a movie to watch on his new TV that night and ate cake and popcorn! Happy Birthday, BAB!!! :)

The funny voice you hear is me :) We talk funny to each other to make us laugh. Notice that Adam is a little distracted? Can't take his eyes of High Definition!!! :)


My poor dad has season tickets to the BYU games and my mom has to work every other Saturday! So, after my dad went to two games all by himself, I could finally go with him! It was freezing! I wore 4 shirts (two long and two short sleeve) long garms, two pair of long underwear bottoms, snow pants, two pair of thick socks, a scarf, beenie, two sweatshirts, ski coat, and brought a blanket! The only thing i din't use was one of my sweatshirts and I sat on the blanket. Luckily, it didn't rain! Or SNOW!!! BYU won and we went to dinner at TGIFridays after, to avoid traffic and get a bite to eat. Don't mind the weird face in the picture. I was trying really hard not to shake the camera when I was shivering and I have hat hair from my beenie. Thanks for taking me, Daddy!

I have long hair since 7th grade. So... a LONG time! Since being on the pill, my soft, flowing hair has become a course, tangled mess most of the time. I finally got so sick of it, so when Pete commented that I would look cute with short hair, I started thinking about it...so much easier to take care of.....get rid of bad ends.....still look cute..... I made my decision. After looking in magazines and online, I found the length I wanted and style to make it look good. I made Pete take these pictures so everyone can see the dramatic change this was. I almost backed out when I started freaking myself out, but I am so glad I didn't. The "after" picture my hair is a little flat, but it was raining all day so it got a little wet and flat. Hope you like the new look!

The Ginormous Quilt!

I've been working on this quilt forever! What seemed like a simple enough project has turn into a massive pain in the butt, but it's coming. I finally finish tying it last night (with no help, thanks Pete!) so I just have to finish the edging and the pillows. Give me a week and I'll try to post some pictures of the bed. Sorry!
