Sun Hats and Sundays

Hats, hats, hats...this is what we heard people whisper as we passed them on our stroll to church, I didn't know these hats would cause such commotion! The truth is every one wished they could be wearing their sun hats too because it feels so classy...

In the Summer

 Summer is here! The weather has been super nice this week here in provo and every day after I get off work I just head outside for a run, bike ride, or any adventure (go carts, miniture golf, abandoned treehouses, splash parks, play grounds, baseball games and more) to try and soak up as much sun as possible! One of these is growing this little garden with my friend Landon, I don't know if Summer could be complete for me with out a garden or with out some bloody knees and legs from biking! ha ha

We planted Pumpkins, Cantaloupe, corn, strawberries, tomatoes, cilantro, basil, and rosemary, it is so amazing to me that you stick such seemingly lifeless things as pumpkin seeds into dirt and a few days later, plants start growing and then a few months later you have huge orange pumpkins to carve and make pies with! What a miracle!
And just in case you are wondering I just crashed my bike trying to jump a little dirt pile...guess I need to work on my jumping skills!

Cassies Baptism!

Last weekend I went up to Rexburg for Cassie's Baptism it was a lot of family fun, despite the fact I was super tired from driving up from Salt Lake where I saw the Iron and Wine and the Head and the Heart play (which was really great but I think my favorite part of the whole thing was eating chinese food with my roommate Jessica before hand and then driving home with my friend Shae)

We all ate together afterwards, which included this beautiful and tasty rainbow Jello! Yum! then the kids played on the slip and slide at Mom and Dad's and we worked on planting the garden...which is probably a lot later then if Dad was here but we are working on it and hopefully we can still harvest some delicious food!

Cassie I am super proud of you for making this great decision and not only for that but for making it a wonderful day and being super happy even though both sets of your grandparents, both of which you are very close to couldn't come, I love you Cassie thank you for your example of cheerfulness!

O and also on Sunday Heidi made a Rainbow Cake like this one! It was also Awesome and Delicious!

Muse Music Cafe

The poster I designed for Muse music cafe, they just got new owners so I volunteered to design for them! I am really excited, I love to design, and I feel like these will give me a great chance to be extra creative! Also I am so glad I have a great roommate who helps me brainstorm, Thanks Jessica!

Work, Work and more Work!

What a great feeling, I was riding my bike to go eat lunch after a couple hours of work and the thought in my head was:

Wow I can't believe they are paying me to do this! This is what I do in my free time for fun!

I feel so blessed, not just for this Job but the one I already have and love! I mean I have two jobs I really love and both of them I are giving me such valuable experience: designing, customer service, the secrets of business, marriage, photography, even how to wrap gifts with tissue paper! Hopefully I will still feel this way after two weeks of this 8 am to 6:30 - 7 pm of straight working, I think I will though, especially with a boss like Justin! For example there is this song Justin and I both love so the other day we were working on a bunch of stuff and Justin stops, tells me to look up the lyrics, turns it on his computer, plays along with his guitar and we both sing, awesome right o and here is the song then next time you can sing along too! 

Also this is why I think Justin is such a great photographer he provides all his clients and acquaintances with a unique fun experience, phenomenal pictures and a memory they will never forget! Check out his website here or his blog here! (PS the link for to wrap gifts is one of the 30 Strangers, and her blog is awesome... O man the pressure is on now for when we send her, her prints!)

Some New Things

The Laundry Mat: 4 loads at one time pretty handy, now if only they were quarter machines not two and a quarter machines...

A New Year for me! O and check out the cake my friend Joe made this for me it is a five layer ice cream cake with funfetti cake and playdough ice cream (my favorite) this was the hit of the party. Also for the party we had the most epic easter egg hunt, thanks to Ashley! (Check out how we did our easter egg hunt here and how one way we died them here)

This is my new favorite breakfast, yep that is right breakfast... it is a chinese thing. I thought my roommate a bit crazy the first time she made it I mean it looks like dinner to me but this is one of the most refreshing breakfasts! And who said pancakes, waffles, toast and cereal is what's for breakfast anyway...

Also I will be starting my new job at the Y tomorrow doing graphic design work wahoo but don't worry I am still working for Justin too! I am just going to be one busy bee for a while, wish me luck! Maybe I will even learn to manage my time.... ha ha

Ya know how when life is hard or dull, you wish you could just go back to one of those amazing sunshine moments in life and just re-live it for a bit....


I wouldn't mind this again (and this is what I wanted all last week!) This trip with Jedd, Katie, and Shae was so relaxing and blissful, thanks guys for talking me into going! I loved it! And I am ready for another one!
