Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

It is my very handsome daddy's birthday!!! Well, tomorrow (the 31st) but I wanted to get it up tonight because he is quite the early bird! I love this man, he works so hard and is the most humble, kind, funny, smart person in the world! I LOVE YOU DAD!

This girl...

I think this is the last in my series of this fancy lady (you cant tell how cute she is in this photo)...Not much has been going on as you can tell. I did get a flat tire today in the Joann's parking lot. I should have waited to tell Adam about it because he came right over and I didn't even get time to look around. I did have long enough to decide that I am going to start sewing. My Grandma gave me a sewing machine for Christmas last year, and I am going to make good use of it as soon as I get into my house...well, that and learn how to sew. But really I'm going to do it.

Goodies and things...

Can you tell what has been on my mind?

Happy Birthday Mommy...

It is my beautiful moms birthday!!! I love her so much, she is my best friend and the best mom in the world. I hope your birthday is the best. Your still as beautiful today as you were back then! Leggy McGee...

Sorry, another one...

I did this tonight, Amy and I hung out an painted all night, ate candy, drank the sodies, and watched I love New York.

Working on the house...

These are some photos from Adam and I working on the house...both of us have seen better days. I was sanding the mud on the dry wall and was literally covered in white powder. And yes, I put sideways photos on my blog...so what.


It has been so nice having time on my hands! These are a few more paintings I have done in the last little while.
We are going to be painting our house in the next couple of days and I'm so excited at how close we are finally coming. I hope every ones weekend was great! We didn't do much, but on Friday night we went out to dinner with some friends and that was fun...It seems like, since we have been doing the house we don't really do stuff like that much.

Happy birthday Mom...

Well, it isn't for another week but this is what she wanted for her birthday so I hope she likes it! I love you mom!

Last ones...

O.K. no more, I promise. I wanted to post o few more... The top 2 are from what Adam calls the "snow run", I personalty hated every second of it. Lets put it this way my idea of fun is not sliding all over roads in the dark secluded wilderness of the mountains in the middle of the night with your engine about to explode (which explains the bandanna, I couldn't breath from the fumes) and having to put chains on your car in knee deep snow...my Adam...what a sweetheart.
And The bottom 3 are Adam and I at Thanksgiving...sorry the one isn't flipped. The first 2 are in Jackson Hole and the other in Idaho.

I NEED to be in this house...

O.K. I know you cant make much out of these photos but this is our add-on to our house. (when we bought it there was no staircase, and it smelt like Top Ramen, basically a dive-pit.) It really is going to be beautiful.


I'm back in business...I have a connector cord to my computer so I can post photos again...I will probably post 45 times tonight because I have so many photos! These are from our trip to Cancun...our hotel, me and my niece Cecily, on the bus (Sarah you are not the only one to brave seedy public transportation) and us in front of the church building. (pretty fancy if you ask me, not quite what I was expecting)


I cant tell you how nice it has been to have some time on my hands to paint. These are a few I have done recently. kind of different from some of the stuff I normally would do but I had fun doing them.

Can't sleep...

I have been painting all day today...well, since 5:30 p.m. and I just got done and it is now 2:30 in the morning. I am writing this because I'm feeling brave at the moment and I'm going to post some of my paintings...my problem is I don't like to show anyone the things I paint...ever. So, I'm writing this now with a promise to myself that I will post some of my paintings tomorrow...as dippy as they are.
Why cant I be more like sister???

So get this...

I wasn't stuck here at the house they just didn't plow this street...so when I looked outside it looked like hell froze over. The reality of it was, all of the streets in town were perfect but when I looked out the window I KNEW I wasn't going anywhere. It wasn't until Adam came home and told me that I finally left my house and by that time it was like 3:00 p.m.

Anyway, when i did go out I stopped by the gate house here in Provo and they had the cutest Easter decorations I have EVER seen! Its this brand that I don't know the name of but everything looks very vintage...it seriously consumes my thoughts. Most of my Christmas decorations are by this company. There is a website that has the stuff to, its http://www.bayberrycove.com/ (I think this is one my sister-in law told me about) but click on Spring and I also recommend clicking on winter...you will die at the Christmas items. I think I will constantly have my house decked out in some type of holiday garb and this stuff is by far the most darling I have seen. (These photos do not do it justice and this isn't even close to how cute some of the stuff is but it is an example none the less!)

Snowed in...

Lets put it this way...these two photos don't mix. I'm stuck at Adams parents house today because my car DOES NOT work in the snow...I'm seriously frustrated. So, I'm still in my jamies and I'm painting, so that makes me happy, but basically what I'm saying here is that Adams car doesn't work and neither does mine. Seems like we need to get our priorities straight in the car department. Oh, by the way...Amy switched me to beta, and it seems to be O.K. so far.

So, Im in Cancun and thought I would drop a line and check the 2 comments I have received in the last month. Its been pretty fun but I have been so sick...My throat and stuff...Worse than ever. I mean bad, but Im feeling so much better today. Its only about my 50th time being sick this winter. Anyway, the weather has been really nice and we have just been hanging around on the beach and relaxing.
The plane ride was an obstacle for me (for those of you who don't know, I FREAK OUT when I fly)...Before we even took off they told us about 20 times that this was going to be a very bumpy ride. I balled and told Adam to let me off the plane...But I made it...So far...I still have the ride home. My positive way of thinking is, everyone will look at this post after my plane goes down and they will say..."She knew". Im working on this problem.
I hope everyone is having a very happy New Year!
