My favorite font the last few weeks has been one called Miss Missy . . . which also happens to be one of my best friends! She came down to visit around Halloween and as you can tell we went all out on decorations this year!(when lisa gets an idea it turns into a PROJECT!) We put black lights in all the basement fixtures and covered the walls with black plastic bags and then all the decorations we put up glowed in the black light. It was pretty fun I have to admit I was really sad to take it down it turned out so fun, but Mike wanted his man room back to watch football so it had to go.
Cheesy I know but it really did look cool with all the black lights glowing. Also everyone's costumes looked tripped out in the lights. . . i will see if i can find any pics of that.
ANYWAY. . . thanks for coming down Miss I had so much fun and can't wait for you to break free and take a break with me again. . . Also thanks Lisa for turning the basement into many nights of GOOD TIMES!
This song came on this morning on my drive to work. It made me smile and definitely think of good times at DTP with Kirstin. . . Hope it brightens your day. I had never seen the video but it made my FRIDAY even better!
For all of you who voted for my in-laws in the worst kitchen contest . . . . here are the results. Beautiful! We are spending Thanksgiving in St. George this year so maybe we can put that kitchen to use! Here is a link to the before pics.
It was our turn this year to get the nfl TICKET. . for those of you, like me, that have no clue what that is. . it is a package we bought on our direct tv that shows EVERY nfl game EVERY week. What does that mean? Our house is packed on football days. So to make it fun for the girls we started betting on the games with the boys. The week winner gets to pick anything they want for the rest to do, for example Mike picked mini golf, Lisa picked our Halloween costumes (Ninja Turtles by the way!). I don't know what I am going to pick but it's only week 3 and I won the BOYS!! It was close but my Cowboys brought it home for me last night! I still am not thrilled about 12 straight hours of football every weekend but if I can keep winning maybe I can get my whole house cleaned!!
A client came in the other day and needed her picture turned to "pop art". I had never really tried this but ended up using Mike and I as the test runs. . .
Aren't we CUTE!
Another picture from the same day. This was actually Ashlee's farewell day but these are the only two pics I got. (I don't get Mike to dress up that often so I had to get him when he's all done up!) I had mom's camera all day so next weekend I'll have to steal them so you can see Ashlee's fun day. . We had a ton of family support there because it was the same weekend as my Grandma's funeral. Busy weekend but fun to spend so much time with family.
There are those days that all you need to turn your day around is your best friends and mini golf. Totally cheesy I know but well worth the LAUGHS! It's actually black light and every hole is themed. . I think that made it even better.
Lyndsie, Becca, Meggan, Lisa
We tried one without the flash to see. . You can tell we are not true blondes!
Thanks girls for a much needed escape from reality!
Our dear grandma Lovell passed away last Saturday. Although it is sad for us I can only imagine how happy her and grandpa are, finally reunited. At the funeral this weekend Katie and I will be sharing memories. If anybody has any they would like to share we would love the help to make sure all of our wonderful memories of our beautiful grandma are not forgotten. Thanks for all your help! Her sweet smile will definitely be missed.
How proud am I of all my siblings? So proud! For those of you who don't know Ashlee has decided to serve a LDS Mission. She will be leaving July 22nd for Oklahoma, and her farewell is July 19th. Ashlee I am so proud of you and know that you will do an amazing job! I cannot believe that I have two siblings on missions right now! I do feel really blessed and am so excited for both of you.
We aren't ready for our own but we sure love our Godkids!!
Lyndsie went and got pics done at kiddie kandids and none of them were super great so she brought them to me to make her a cute wallhanging and this is what we came up with. We ended up printing it 4' x 1' and mounting it to 1/2" black foamcore. It looks so cute, but why wouldn't it with these cute smiles!!
It's been FOREVER since I updated so here are a few pics to catch up . . .
DECEMBER Our friends Dave and Jodi got married in the middle of the Las Vegas Marathon. It was pretty hilarious with all of the Elvis' that got married with them. They had a part sectioned off half way through the marathon where the people getting married stopped. They all got married at the exact same time by one officiant. Then they started running again and finished the marathon. Dave and Jodi have been running marathons together for a while so it was the perfect way for them to get hitched! It was unusual but a very fun VEGAS trip!! It was fun to watch them get married even though we barely made it after playing all night before! Notice Elvis behind them!!
Next we came back to St. George for their reception. It was so pretty and Jodi looked amazing in her dress. I never thought I would see my firefighting friend dressed up but she looked great!
Becca and Jodi Becca and Shawna Jason, Mike and Corey . . Cheesy but at least it's a cute smile on Mike!! Usually he gives me a grumpy look when I try to take pictures. Corey and Shawna on their FAKE date since neither of their others could be there!
The Boys and Shawna Me and My Cute Boy! The happy Marathon Running couple!
