So i am a handmade-crafty junkie!!! I love to discover people who have taken their talents and turned it into something creative. I'm more on the creative side with scrapbooking and card making so I especially love people who can do things like this girl has done to furniture.

I have a bunch of antique furniture that i'm seriously thinking about driving out to Mission Viejo, CA so that she can finish it for me this beautifully.

I just wanted to give her a shout out and let her know how much i love her work! You guys can find her on along with so many other creative minds it will make your head spin!

Check out her stuff!!!

Only 7 weeks left...

Yesterday marked the 7 week mark of the day that my best friend in the whole wide world is coming back from his mission in Rome, Italy. He is having the time of his life and loves being a missionary so much, however i, along with his mother especially, am very excited to have him back.

The funny thing is that these past two years seem like they have just flown by, but whenever i think about everything that has happened and all the ways in which i have grown, it seems like he has been gone for forever.

It's crazy to me that it's so soon. I know that week will sneak up on me and i won't even know what hit me, but i can't wait!

Chris is so amazing and i don't know what i would do without him in my life!

I love you Chris and i'll see you in just a few short weeks!

Olympic Park, Park City

My dad had a convention for his company so on a Sunday afternoon, after we had already been to church, we went up to an event at Park City, Utah's Olympic Park to watch the aerial skiers jump off into a pool. I can honestly say it was one of the coolest things i have ever seen in utah!

If any of you ever have the chance to go i would highly recommend it. The performers were phenomenal and definitely way cooler than i ever could have imagined...

can you say, christmas card?
