- 1 month Anniversary

On the 28th of October, Nathan and I celebrated our "Negative One Month" anniversary. For the past 3 years we have celebrated by going to Color Me Mine to paint our own dishes.

Here are some pictures from past years:

And this year:

I recently went to a Super Saturday in my ward and did the following, as well as learning a yummy recipe for Cinnamon Rolls. Hooray!

We also invited some friends over for Skookies! Yum!!!

As well as making homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu. SOOOO easy and SOOO delicious! If you want the recipe, you can find it here.

And that's what has happened lately!

Crafty, Crafty, Crafty.

I have been TRYING to get this done for a while... I'm getting closer, ever so closer! My goal is to have a least the top done by Halloween. I still have 5 day, right? :) These are the blocks that are mostly done:
Witch (without hair...):
What it will look like when it's done (hopefully!):

Also I took my first class from a quilt store. It was how to make a purse.

Yes, one day it will have handles too.

Heather's Baby Shower

On Saturday I threw my old roommate Heather a baby shower. It was fun getting ready for it. Thanks to Megan and Nathan for their help! Here are some pictures from the event:

The Food:

Chicken Salad (with croissants), chips and dip, peaches, pop...


How CUTE!!!!!


The 'melt chocolate in a diaper, have it look like poo, and guess what kind it is' game

The 'see who can drink their juice the fastest from a sippy cup' game:
(no picture from actual game...but you get the idea.)

There were also a unscramble baby words game, but no pictures of that either!

Blurry Prizes:


The fabulous diaper cake I made : )
Burp rag from Megan
A toy giraffe from Nicole and Julia and a blanket/hat/socks from Brittany
A picture of Megan : P

I had a really fun time. It was nice to get together with all my old roommates. Who's next?

The Fair

Nathan, Andrew, and Logan went to Colorado for the BYU vs. Air Force game, so Megan and I decided to go to... THE UTAH STATE FAIR!!!

It was HOT!!!

Now we had some low expectations (sorry to those that love the Utah fair...) but the Iowa State Fair is AMAZING!!!! and how could Utah really compete?

We walked around for a while trying to decide what food to eat. I really wanted a pork chop on a stick, but Utah isn't famous for pork chops on a stick, so they didn't have any. I settled on a smoked turkey leg instead. It was good, but HUGE! Megan, however, being the curious person she is, decided to get Alligator on a Stick. (ewww..) She said it wasn't bad!

We basically had a "Bushel of FUN"!

Another thing that the Iowa State fair is famous for is their...BUTTER COW!!!! But not only is there just a cow, but there are other sculptures as well, like Superman, or the landing on the moon. Something cool like that. Well, Utah does have a butter cow. But it's just not the same. : (

We had a fun time overall. Good try Utah. Good try!

Good News Minute

I loved having good news minute in Relief Society. Unfortunately my ward doesn't do that so much (what can you say for the Nearly Dead and the Newly Wed???) Anyways.... I just wanted to share a brief little bit of good news... We're having a BABY!!!! HOORAY! I had my 11 weeks and 2 days appointment and was able to hear the heartbeat. What a sigh of relief! We've been waiting until we heard it to officially spread the news on the web : ) Nathan said that the heartbeat sounded like a boy... whatever that means. : ) My sisters are convinced it's a girl. Nathan and I would love a boy (or a girl, but we want a boy first!) I'm thinking about making a baby blog, because I'm cool like that, so that those of you who don't want to hear about my expanding waistline can not hear about it. But for those of you who LOVE to hear about it (like me!) you can just pop on over there! I'll let you know when it's up and running. The 22nd of March is the due date. Hooray for babies!

Another cake. Is this all I ever do?

Well I tried a NEW cake! It was from the Kraft Food and Family magazine and it looks a little like this:

AND IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!! That is cream cheese, sugar, cool whip and oreos in that filling!
