Thank you my friend, who ever you might be... you definately brightened my day!

March Madness

As crazy has this month as been for the two of us, we don't really have many pictures to prove it. Besides me working 3 jobs, Todd working 2 jobs and going to school, Stake Dance Festival which we are very involved with, church callings, and trying to work out… we never see each other so don’t be offended if you never see us! This is the kind of busy we have been. Luckily we have had a little time to do a few things we like to think of as fun and exciting.

Back at the beginning of the month one of Todd’s best friends was married in the Oakland Temple. It was a beautiful ceremony and the day couldn’t have been more beautiful.

The Tulips were absolutely amazing! They were huge!

They were married on a Friday morning so, in order to have a zero stress morning we went up on Thursday night to Oakland. The most exciting part of going up early is not the “awesome” hotel we stayed at in the heart of Oakland but for me the excitement of going to IKEA! Todd is always a great sport and puts on a happy face as I walk around IKEA for hours. It is always fun to day-dream and figure out each other’s likes and dislikes. I even was able to come away from the trip with a new bed headboard and footboard and dresser. LOVE IT!

I also have been working hard to perfect my pizza making skills. I know this is random but I was really proud of it. I have made pizza a few other times since we have been married but these were the first pizza’s that were actually round! This was Todd’s “manly” pizza with all the different meat on it (he doesn’t need to know that the crust was whole wheat). The pizza that actually turned out better I didn’t take a picture of, but it was my yummy Hawaiian pizza.

Next, since it is getting to be such nice weather here I decided it was time to decorate for spring. Here are a few of the little decorations I threw together. All this for under $10!

And finally today since I didn’t have to work and Todd had a break after class we decided it was time to set up the back patio for the wonderful weather we’ve been having. We pulled out all the patio furniture and washed it all off. It was gross but as always, turns out fabulous in the end. Now it’s time for a bar-b-q… who’s coming???
