On the first day of christmas..

When i cam home tonight i found this cute
little thing on my back door

One the First day of Christmas
your true love gave to you:
A Partridge in a pear tree...
Sorry, but i couldn't find the partridge
so i am giving you some pears from the tree
that the patridge flew away from.

I am so excited and thankful that someone is doing this for us! and a cant wait to see what else we will get! Thank you to this wonderful person or family!

Hello! we are still alive and doing well we have just been super busy! Brady has now been working with his uncle building houses so he has been home all the time now which has been so much fun! I have started back up in school full time which keeps me really busy as well. In our spare time we have been painting our kitchen table red and watching all the seasons of house m.d. :) i will post a better update later but we are still here and have a new addition to our family.. a Laptop! so hopefully i can be a better blogger!

I had my 20th birthday in June, and my nephew was born the day before mine, so my awesome hubby and family threw a suprise party for me and him on Troy's birthday. On my birthday one of my best friends was married! it was so fun to be able to go to the temple and see them married for eternity. It reminds me how lucky we are to be able to do that and i was able to do that with Brady. Her wedding was so beautiful! i will post pictures later. but, here is pictures of our birthday party :)

I got my hair cut for my birthday and i love it! its hard to see it cause it is pulled back but i will post better pictures later!

Troy is such a happy little kid and he sure loved his blue cake!

updates and upkeeps

i apologize in advance for the long post(and the several smaller ones after it), i havent been a very good blogger lately and i am way behind on what has been happening. Brady and i are coming up next week on our 5 month anniversary! crazy! i can't believe we have already been married that long.. but as the saying goes time flys when you're having fun :) Brady has been working a lot more and is out of town most of the time (so i am free if somebody wants to hang out with me!) but that means i have lots of time to do projects and crafts around our house! i have loved watching our little house become a home to us as we personalize it to fit our style. My family has been so good to me hanging out with me constantly and helping me with my creative ideas. My dad made me some bookcases for my bedroom back home and now he just build us another new one to make a wall of bookcases since brady and i are book fanatics!

Here is the before: two bookcases painted yellow

and after: three bookcases, books, green paint, and other odds and ends. are bookcases aren't quite full yet but that means room to buy new books right? My dad did such a great job on our bookcases and we love them!

My awesome mom has also been helping me get things done she made me cute vinyl sayings to go on my wall (she is also wanting to start up a business making vinyl sayings so if anyone is interested you can just write on my wall and i can get the information to her) and made these cute pillows for my couch :)

i have also been decorating our bedroom, we got these night stands from brady's parents. we painted, and stressed them to make them match our bed.



We also traded some dressers with Jolene, since the drawers were painted and i wanted the wood to show i had to strip the paint on them, this dresser had been painted five times before so it took a lot more work than i anticipated but i think the outcome turned really well..

Before:Red dresser with cream drawers and silver handles

After: black dresser with wooden drawers and gold handles

i got a bunch of frames for real cheap at the DI and painted them different colors, and with some, i put fabric in them and hung it on the wall.

i had the t.v. stand that my dad made for my room at home, we just painted it black and my mom helped make these curtains for the window.

We were able to buy us this awesome bed with the money we got from our wedding(whiched worked out perfect because we had no idea what we were going to sleep on!) and my mom made us this beautiful quilt for our wedding present! we were able to do our own quilting for this quilt and it was so much fun! i would reccomend it to anyone who does quilting, the store we went to were so good to work with and it is WAY cheaper then having someone else do it.

i love that mirror (thanks Hatches!)and picture (thank you Brown's!) we got for our wedding it works so well in our room!

Brady's Big 20

So, Brady turned 20! I tried to throw a "surprise" family dinner party for him, but of course he figured it out.. (i am not very good at secrets) My parents and family gave him such a good gift!

They gave us both great tickets to see Tarzan! that is brady's favorite play he was lucky enough to even see it on Broadway! (so Jealous.) but Tuacahn will be doing it this year and we get to see it! We can't wait till June 25th!

Bike Rides

The other day Brady and i decided to go for a bike ride. We packed a picnic and headed off on a trail. i hadn't rode a bike since i was about eight and even then i only rode a bike long enough to learn how to ride it, but i thought to myself, we will just go for a small bike ride how hard can it be? wrong. we ended up riding about 6 miles and ended up at my mom's house so she could give us a ride back... We had so much fun even though i was sore for days, we also packed a fun picnic and ate at a park along the way.

Projects, Projects, and more Projects...

Hello! sorry i haven't updated in so long, life has been getting the better of me. I have been working on so many projects lately just trying to make our house i little bit more fun and colorful. I found this awesome fabric at quilted works and fell in love with it! is kinda a retro vintage fabric and the colors are so fabulous i decided this is what my living room colors are going to be. :) i haven't made the quilt yet but when i do, i will post it!

Also my wonderful husband, Brady, built us a new TV stand.
This awesome old stand was givin to us (holes and all).

we didn't have anything for our TV so we have been using it as a TV stand, but it was ready to fall apart at any moment, and we couldn't fit anything on it so.. He built us a new one!

we took the old shelves out of it because they were still good and built a stand for it.

it doesn't look like it but the color is kind a burnt red color(to match the fabric), but in the picture it loooks more pinkish.

my hunny did such a good job, and i am so proud of him! everything fits so much better and looks prettier too! :)

the honeymoon

so for our honeymoon, we went to Zion's for a week,
and we stayed at the Cable Mountain Lodge.
it was so nice and we had so much watching movies and site seeing.
we would recommend that place to anyone wanting a little getaway!

we had such a good view of the mountains,
and we ate at some really good resteraunts!
Blondies dinner was my favorite
(try their chicken strips and chocolate shakes!)

it was so much fun, but i wish it would
have snowed while we were there :( so close!
