The tickets I purchased for our girl's night to go see Kelly and Reba have arrived. I might even post a count down to the concert, next to the BYU football one of course. Cheers!!

Is that a weird combination or what? BYU foot ball and Reba & Kelly concerts....That's who I am. I am a woman of diverse interests. j/k Ü

I have a kindred friend who always says cheers and I love it. So I might steal it from her....Sorry Jamie!

Birthday's in July

So my birthday is in August, and Taylor's is in September. Yes I am the "older and wiser" one in the family...anyways we decided to have birthdays in July. We got Taylor an Xbox for his birthday yesterday. He was so excited! I think his brother Eric might be just as excited. I've never seen such an intense look on his face while he was playing Nintendo or whatever you call it.

Well my mom and dad bought me a Cricut expression for my birthday. They can't keep a secret so they gave it to me early. I think they were so excited watching Taylor open his "present" that they wanted to give me mine too. So Tay and I celebrated our birthdays yesterday.

If you have never heard of the cricut expression just go watch the infomercial that the lady with the lisp does online. Taylor was laughing hysterically when he saw it! This machine does so much. You will just have to come see me sometime for a demonstration!

Head Board

So who knew that after getting married my new favorite place to go would be RC Willey. Yeah anyone who wants to go hang out there count me in! Give me a call because I will most likely always say Yes to go to RC Willey.

I went to the clearance outlet center because it's right down the street from my work. So at lunch I'll go walk around and look for killer deals. My newest "killer deal" was I found this head board in perfect condition for $67 dollars. It is for our brand new king size bed. I was thinking it would be years before I would get something. I thought we could go without something there for a while because it isn't a necessity. I found this great deal and couldn't pass it up. It really does just make things look finished. I've learned that if Taylor and I both really like something then we should buy it because it doesn't happen often. We usually agree on things to decorate with but only because Taylor thinks I'll make anything look good, he's not passionate about decorating...go figure.

Fun Game

This game has been making the rounds and I have LOVED it. It's so fun to remember things about other people, and also read other's memories as well. Feel free to participate, or don't.

1. Add a comment on my blog. Leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

If you don't know me at all or we don't have memories together, then leave a comment about Taylor.

Taylor and I planted a salsa garden a month or so ago, and I wanted to update you on it's progress. One of our tomato plant's has 8 tomato's on it. The other's are not far behind. Things have tripled in size since we planted them. Taylor's dad was nice enough to let us plant this over at his house, and I'm so glad he did. Our garden wouldn't be the same without his dirt. I really think there is something in the dirt over there. I also talked to the plants when we planted them so I think that has something to do with it even if Taylor won't admit it.
This is really exciting to watch things sprout up and grow. I can imagine this is like raising children, but on a much much much smaller scale.
We are so excited to have fresh salsa soon. It's one of my favorite summer things. Know any good salsa recipes?

So here we are... back to another monday morning, and we had quite the fun weekend. We went and saw The Incredible Hulk for the second time and I have to say, I love this movie. And more than that, I love the way that they are doing comic book movies now. It seemed like when they were doing the spider man movies, and it was just kind of joke (which is really sad because I used to like spider man as a kid) but ever since Batman Begins came out and was amazing, they have been doing a much better job with superhero/comic book movies. I can't wait to see The Dark Knight when it comes out this weekend, and hopefully it doesn't disappoint.

The next thing that we did this weekend was that on Saturday afternoon, Ashley and I went up to my brother's house in Kaysville and had lunch with his family. As a tradition that Eric (my brother) and I started a couple of years ago, we like to make new food when ever we get together up there. We made beer brats a couple of years ago and then followed it up with Argentine Empanadas. This time we decided to make Beer Marinated Chicken Tacos. ( They were amazing. We also did homemade tortillas and cilantro lime rice (like they have at Cafe Rio). Eric and Melissa have the funnest kids to play with. Kylie, who is 5, likes soccer so I told her that I would play with her. Kylie would only play when she had someone else on her team to block me from getting to her. Parker simply likes to run around and chase Ashley... He always has had a thing for her.
Last week on Wednesday, Kevin, Lori, Chris, Ashley and I (Grant and Jen came up later on) went up to Tanner Flats up Little Cottonwood Canyon and roasted hotdogs and marsmallows on the fire. It was quite fun just to get away from the city and just relax for a while. I always have loved sitting around and just relaxing...Basically, I love summer, even though I don't particularly enjoy the scorching hot weather, I do like the summer nights when you can cruise around with the windows down and go enjoy a snoasis!

Since U Been Gone!!!

Oh my goodness! I can only begin to tell you about my excitement today!! I've been looking forward to this day since the day I got married. Let's be honest it was only 1.5 months ago...but still....I'm so excited for today because I am going to cut my hair off! I've been growing it out for our wedding, but now I finally get to cut it off. I just feel like it is in that ugly stage where I can't do anything with it. My hair has not been this long in years. It's not even that long either! I woke up this morning and told Taylor I might be more excited for today then the day we got married! ....Just kidding.... I love Taylor more then I love my hair, (gulp) shoes, and cats. I hate cats.

So that is not the only reason I am so excited today. Today I got an e-mail saying Carrie Underwood was coming to town. I don't know why that made me think of Kelly Clarkson, but then I thought to myself I wonder when Kelly is coming to town. So I went to her website to find out. KELLY AND REBA ARE COMING TOGETHER OCTOBER 10, 2008!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If any of you know me at all you will know that my all time favorite song is Since U Been Gone. It was played at my wedding. I know not a wedding song, but I just love it! I had to have it.

Anyways if you want to go it will be friggin sweet, sick, off the charts, whatever you want to call it, I will call it AMAZING. I only have one word for this "Fancy". If you don't know what that means then you shouldn't be going!!! Ü

So let me know if you want to go! Tickets go on sale July 19th. That is one Saturday I will be up early!!

Happy 4th of July!

Thanks to all the service men and women who allow us to enjoy the simple freedom's such as eating BBQ while enjoying the company of friends, family, and fireworks!!!

Taylor found this picture for me the other day. It has now become my screen saver. With it almost being July 4th I find it fitting to post this picture. It's very patriotic. Lot's of red, white and BLUE!!!!
