Nov. 21st is a Great Day to Get Married!

Happy First Year Anniversary to us! Its been a wonderful wonderful first year and we can't wait for a few more together! We decided that the first year of marriage was not at all as hard as everyone says it to be. We've learned a lot, and grown a lot, and love where we're at! To commemorate, we drove to St. George for MJ & Jordan's wedding! (MJ and I met doing shows together, and then were roommates for the year before I got married. Our birthdays are a day apart, both engaged within the same week, and now married on the same day) It was beautiful, of course. It was so neat to be in the sealing room with them on our actual anniversary, and almost exactly the same time we were married! We also were able to do a sealing for some family names afterwards--also really great. Then we stayed at the Anniversary Inn, which was so fun! Each room is themed super fun, and we got a great deal back in August. And as if the decor wasn't fun enough (notice the showerhead that comes out of the elephant's trunk, the waterfall in the middle of the room, and the lifesize alligator) the sparkling cider and cheesecake in the fridge made it a good investment!

Princess Jamie

Jamie commissioned me to make her Prom dress, and we designed it after the "Glinda" dress on Wicked. I'm sending it out this weekend, but now it has to sit in her closet until May.
I hope it makes the journey to Iowa safely!!!

For the sake of all the Nauvoo girls that missed Bleaky's baby shower last night:

Who Dunnit?

We got to experience the "Murder Mystery Dinner" up at Spring Haven lodge last night, where Travis played "Tom", the footman and brother to Rob, who mysteriously inherited millions of dollars and also mysteriously was murdered with rat poison in front of our eyes!
Sadly, Travis wasn't the murderer :( But good work, little brother!

Typical Tuesday

Since 5-Buck-Pizza started selling their pizzas on Tuesdays and Thursdays for $2.99, we've had a somewhat traditional Tuesday night dinner :) I promise I cook wholesome meals all the other nights of the week!

Ode to Chappy

Dear Chappy:
Thank you again for the banana split bowls! We love them and use them all the time! On Saturday, we had Adam & Kristen Buchanan over for a movie and we made the most delicious desserts.
The End.

The Berry Sisters

Another sewing job! I made some bridesmaid dresses for a wedding today and took Jason with me to the reception so I could take some pictures. Cute girls!

The Break-In

Just now I was returning some books to the library--36 in fact. (We read "Choose Your Own Adventure" books for the last 15 min. of class last week when we were talking about how your friends influence your future.) So I walked out and sat right down in someone else's car, thinking how odd that I left my car door unlocked. I didn't even realize it till I saw all the nasty candy wrappers everywhere, and thought, "Eeew gross, someone broke into my car and ate all this candy!"
Schroeder's license plate distorted for his protection :)

Captain Hook

My friend Bill hired me to make him a Capt. Hook outfit for Halloween! It was sure fun to put together, and gave me confidence that I can still finish something this extensive in 2 weeks on top of working two jobs.

Queen Bee & Prom King

I only wanted to spend $5 on fabric and one hour of my time, so this is what I came up with. Don't look closely, its somewhat poorly put together. Working in a costume shop proved useful when putting together Jason's ensemble!
