- Slip on my way into Smith's (my feet flew out from under me, landing on my butt with an audience of customers and everything)
- Shatter my serving plate for the fruit on the parking lot pavement
- Shed a (little) tear of frustration when Josh wanted to put some snack bags of Fritos he found in the kitchen on my Cranberry Red and Deep Sage color-coordinated table. I'd put a lot of thought into how I wanted the table to look, and Fritos were not a part of my vision. Luckily, I got over the last little burst of stress and had a such a fun time.

It's already been worth it! (We're 3-way owners with his dad and brother)

Josh had the swine flu (so we think) and so we stayed in the whole weekend and carved a couple pumpkins. It was actually kinda fun to stay cooped in for a change.

Josh and I rode on the same bike (yes, at the same time) down this beautiful road.
I was a 'yittle bit scared to go down the hills, but it was a blast.
We had 2 new additions (baby William and baby Jack) to our family this go-around and I was in heaven! They are all way too cute for me to handle.

I found a new manager to take over at Green Tea HP and it feels so good to shed that constant responsibility. I have really loved that job and I will miss it. I've met so many great friends there.
Hello Allconnect- I'm ready to take on something new! I start a "regular job" as a relocating specialist at the first of October!

|Alexa was my little shadow through the night|
|My little brother Parker and his friends had a blast making everyone italian sodas. It was fun watching them!|
|This makes me tear up! Apparently, my dad cried for a couple hours after we left for the hotel...|
What a perfect day. We had a nice breeze for the dancing.
I hoped we could have dancing at our "mormon" wedding, and it worked!
|So, originally when I posted this I didn't write about this picture, but it is kind of funny, so I should write it out. So Chase and his band of decorators sealed up our car so much with packing tape that we could not get in! It was really uncomfortable having everyone watch us while we slowly found a way to open the doors and drive off. I'd envisioned everyone lighting the sparklers like we'd planned for our exit- that didn't quite happen- and I felt badly about the amount of work and mess that was left for family and friends to have to clean up. Just before we got the doors open my dress caught a gust of wind and everyone saw a full-on shot of my new temple garments. I was so embarrassed and had such a fluster of emotions, and so I cried on our way to the hotel. Sad, but true! I felt like we were so blessed to have such a beautiful wedding with so much support, but let's be honest, weddings are stressful these days! It was the best day ever because we started our family as 2 people that shared a perfect love for one another. And we were sealed together for ever, and it doesn't get any better than that!|

All of these pictures are taken at my great uncle Ray's property. We had such a good time biking all over the state. We watched this CRAZY mount marathon challenge for the 4th of July and got to see whales and icebergs on a sea tour. (On which, I vowed to never eat smoked salmon ever again...)
This is a wood-burining hot-tub! Rub a dub-dub :)

It was such a success! A storm blew in and it was freezing earlier today and I was so afraid that no one would come, but the sun came out and the weather could not have been more perfect. The dishes were so much fun- (so different!) and I thoroughly enjoyed playing waterballoon volleyball and badmitten? Ok, spell-checker, help me out here... Badminton. We had a the perfect sized crowd and I am so grateful to everyone that helped out.
The only thing that could have been better is if I would have remembered that I'm the one I assigned to take the pictures. I brought the camera, but I was having so much fun that I forgot to document it.

Time-tested beauty tips:

We live upstairs in a 8-complex. You walk in, and you see our living room. Those couches I picked up off my aunt-- They used to be dirty, scratched up white leather! It took hours and hours to stain them, but they're softer and in much better condition now. Worth-while project for the most part.
I got the fresh tree branch idea from a new friend of mine (Madeline Anderson) in our college married ward. She got some tree branches outside that were just starting to bloom and just put them in a vase. I used to have an ivy star plant on this shelf, but it needed more sun, so I adopted her idea instead. PS- her apartment is so "anthropologie-chic."
Josh is getting used to my cooking ;)
Down the hall is our bedroom. Thanks again to mom for finding all the furniture at RCWilley scratch and dent!
josh does most of the ironing. what a good boy...
When I first published this post, I didn't put pictures of the spare/office/den/guest/extra room because the pictures I took helped me realize how cluttery it was. I cleaned it up and now I'm finally posting it. Next job is to do something cute with our balcony.
