Just finished this book.
Elna is a good writer...and funny too.
That said, I'm glad I'm not in her shoes.
She made out her life to be oh so different....
Like she is the only "one of a kind" mormon.
The only one who doesn't like Baptists At the Barbeque.
I started out enjoying the book...
and finished with a bad taste in mouth.

That's all I'll say.

This was date night last weekend.
We saw it at a dollar movie actually called "Dollar Movie."
Made us giggle...the theater and the movie.
I think we were grinning the whole time.
This was also a recent purchase.  If you haven't heard them, you should.  Cree and I kept putting their youtube videos on repeat....so we felt the next step was to buy the album.  Highly recommend it.

aren't they so cute?!
Just bought this album.  At first I was underwhelmed, but I'm liking it the more I listen to it.  Still not up to She + Him status...but pretty good.  The best song is Relator.


I got this album for christmas from my mama.  I just unwrapped it from the package this week.  I can't beleive I waited this long...it is fantastic.  We re-watched the movie with Tyler + Kenz when we visited...the music is just as fantastic as the movie.

Some of Cree's pals...then my pals by default...posted this new video.  I have watched it three times already this morning. LOVE IT!

The deadline for applying is February.
I might try and enter some letterpress....
just maybe. 



I've never heard of Boden before. 
I really really like it.  Very flirtatious.

this made me smile.  :)
This website is my dream!!!  I love ampersands!  It took me weeks to pick out the perfect one for our wedding announcement.  I only wish they listed what fonts they came from....

My mama has been cleaning out her computer files and found these.  She took them about three weeks after we started dating.  We were pretty smitten.  It fun to think about all that has happened since then.

A fun weekend in Happy Valley with Tyler + Kenz.

They have such a beautiful home.


Always a little thrifting...


Fantastic find. Circa 1971. Played it twice!



Also another fantastic find. Vintage needle point thread.


Tyler + Kenz found an abandoned drive in.
It made me want to rent a projector and play a movie.









What a wonderful weekend! The Sassers spoiled us with wonderful meals and the best homemade cookies I've ever had. We played games, watch movies, and laughed a lot. Can't wait to go back.

I love being married.
On my blogs this morning, I spotted these!!  Two new restaurants in Kansas City with fantastic graphic design.  Our next visit home, I might have to drop in.  The designer's website is here.

Everyday at work, I sit here (photo below) at my computer, working hard, being a great employee.
(yes that is a vault behind my desk...and yes, the walls are purple.)


But now all I can think about is our new vandercook press!!!  Cree picked it up yesterday morning.  He is so good to me. Better photos to come, but for now...these will do!
