NOW I AM 22!

This weekend has been probably the best weekend and a horrible weekend at the same time. I don't know if that's even possible, but let me elaborate...Friday, Tyler took me shopping and I got some way cute things! I can't even believe how lucky I am to have him as my husband. He just knew that taking me shopping would make me happy. I got this cute tweed jacket and the beautiful cowl neck sweater (but in cream)

After church on Sunday we went to Ty's parent's house for a birthday party. We had the most delicious homemade chicken pot pie that is Kristin's recipe. There were a lot of people there and it was great. Thanks again Kristin for coming down with your family. I love the boys' cards. Jace and Braxton drew me pictures of me as a robot and said happy birthday. I love having nephews and little Ashlyn as a niece! I always thought I would have to be a mom before and aunt, but that is not the case and I love it!!! If you haven't seen the latest pics, look at Kristin's blog. She is a wonderful sister-in-law! Ok, well after the fantastic dinner, we had fantastic dessert and then present time. Rasmussen's got me a beautiful purse and sweater and jewelry. Kristin gave me a pampered chef vegetable steamer, pyrex mixing bowl and corn on the cob holders. They're fantastic. My family bought me a sewing machine and a little basket and pin cushion and stuff. My mom also got me a pastry cloth (I didn't get one for my wedding) so I can make delicious pies!! Yahoo for birthdays. I wasn't too surprised about the sewing machine because 1) I asked for it and 2) my mom basically begged me to get one when I was at home. I never have been too "crafty" and do not have the patience for sewing things. HOWEVER, now that I have been out of the house for awhile, and been able to sew a couple things on my own, I have learned that it is fun and can be quite resourceful. Now I can finish my curtains that I got for our house. Right now they are hanging in our bedroom quite drearfully.

Here's my sewing machine

And this is what I'm hoping my curtains will be like. This is the only picture I could find, so as soon as my project is complete I will post pictures.
Now to the somewhat bad part of the weekend. Tyler had this huge programming project that was due Monday that I swear he worked on for more than 25 hours (Mostly between Thursday and Sunday). We missed the BYU Football game because of my dance rehearsals, which is another part why the weekend was so hard. I had rehearsals from 4-9:30 on Friday and then from 11-2 and 3:30-5:30 on Saturday. My right big toe is bruised and black...gross and yes sooo painful. That's the price you pay for greatness I guess:)

Hope you can come to the show December 9 or 10!!!
