Flowers and such

For those of you that don't know, before I moved to Cedar I worked at a flower shop for 2 years. I loved every second of it. I started as customer service but worked my way up to a designer. That was probably the best job ever and I miss it like crazy! Well since then I haven't had the chance to get my hands on some flowers, I think there was one weekend I went home and helped with weddings at the shop. But this past weekend a girl I work with at the salon got married and I got to do her boquet!! I was so excited..and a little nervous cause it had been so long, what if I lost my touch! But I didn't haha. I loved the way it turned out!! But it made me miss the flowers business a lot.

The Final Product!


I made a quilt! Yes, me. Well kind of, I could have never done it without my Aunt Kim and Grandma (and my mom was the best supervisor ever). A few weeks ago my Aunt Kim to visit and she tied a few quilts and I got the bug. So she said she would help me. We all know my grandma has enough fabric for the german army so I raided her stash. ha. We had a good time tieing and visiting. Thanks Grams for the fabric and doing the edges for me. I love it!!

Here it is folks.

Footloose and Fishing

This last Thursday night me, my mom, Lindsey, my grandma, and my aunt Trisha made a trip down to St. George to go to Tuacahn to see Footloose. I haven't even seen the movie so I didn't know what to expect. But it was so good!! I highly recommend it. Before the play we went to dinner at Teaxs Roadhouse..YUM! We had such a good time with just the girls..and special thanks to Grandma for being a good sport..haha. We sure got a kick outof her that night!

Pretty sure that drink was as big as her face.

Then on Friday I went on my first fishing trip! Me, my parents, my grandpa and my dad's friend Gary went to Otter Creek. It ended up being pretty fun. First of all we left at 5:30 so I was not a happy camper but it's ok I got to nap on the way. We finally made it there and started "trolling", I like to sound fancy and make you think I know what I'm talking about. ha. That part was way boring. I thought if this is what it's going to be like all day just shoot me now. But luckily it wasn't. The handy dandy fish finder led us to what was supposed to be a good spot and we parked it. Gary and my grandpa caught one. Then all the sudden I felt a bite. Pretty sure everyone on the lake could hear me..I made quite the scene. I was freaking out cause I didn't know what to do. ha. After that I caught 3 more. Anyway, it turned out to be a pretty good trip!

Reeling it in!

Our spots. I don't think we moved from them. haha. Good spot to catch a few zzz's too.

My first fish!! I was too scared to hold it. ha.
