My Christmas Projects

Second, I made a topsy turvy Alice in Wonderland cake for my sister-in-laws birthday. Never made one before, so it is a work in progress.

Meet Mr. Nasty

California must bring out the best in him, good thing we are moving there. . . . How I love my Mr. Nasty.

Reagan's always jumpin' the gun

For the last few weeks I have been thinking and debating with myself what to do after graduation. Though grateful for options, not knowing for sure was kind of not that fun, if you know what I mean. But I'm proud to announce the the verdict is out... San Francisco it is! I accepted a job with Cornerstone Research today. Apparently Reagan knew all along that we'd end up in San Francisco. How does she do that? I'm constantly amazed by her wisdom, foresight, and insanity.

Anyway, we're planning on three to four years out there, but that doesn't mean you can wait to come visit. We're probably moving in June, and we expect visitors immediately.

We are officially moving to . . .

See you next summer, I really hope we get along.

In the mean time we will be traveling the world. (Just as long as we graduate!)

A True Story

This is the story of a bunch of kids out looking for mischief.

So this is how they found it . . .They got into matching uniforms, and went out looking for something . . . not knowing exactly what this something was.

They saddled up on their long boards, hoping to cover more ground in their search.

But some of them weren't equipped to use such intense means of travel.

But before they had gotten really anywhere at all, they discovered what needed to be done in order to create the perfect mischief.

So they quietly (Shh, quietly Devin!), snuck up on their victim.

(The Victim)

And they attacked. I know it's epic. Please don't ask why there was about 50 couches in our parking garage. But you are welcome to ask who came up with the brilliant idea to cover the beautiful Mazda (the owner of the car is unknown).

And to celebrate they ate homemade, stabbed, delicious caramel apples.

Creepy Sam.

She's getting Married in the Morning!

I know, I know. I can't believe she is getting married either, she is just a kid!! But I think one of the ways of helping kids to grow up is letting them make their own decisions. So today I have decided I will finally allow Bryan to marry Dylan (I hope this decision has nothing to do with the fact that I found out Dylan's Family has connection to London-hook me up!)

Also I slipped that little number in of my mom, priceless.

How Seattle Went Down (our last moments)

LDS Mariners night with Seattle cousins

BBQ at some friends who happened to live close and had the most killer view

Free kissing lessons downtown. . . I'm in!!

Sam purchased me some fresh flowers from Pike Place Market

Spending time with family

Almost every night we watched the sunset

Feeding my friends' turtle

Me and Sam are attempting to hit up the top 10 donut places in the USA, ranked by Bon Appetite. We are officially 1/2 way done.

We would go check out homes and this one was one of my favorites. So cute!! I know you agree. I just know it.

Leigh and Ali come up to visit and we went blueberry picking.

We went Kayaking a couple times. This one was with Sara Argyle.

We had a last FHE with some couples from Sam's old ward that he grew up in. I learned a lot about Sam's Seattle life and how much the Nelsons impacted that ward.

These are the sexy wives of those old dudes.

Us girls went to Port Townsend to set Leigh up in her little apartment. Lots of cleaning to do.

Then we went to Victoria, BC for a day. Hello BC parliament.

Another beautiful sunset.

On our boat ride to Victoria Aly was accusing Leigh of have probably 18 lipsticks in her purse. So Leigh took them out to count them and we found out there were exactly 18.

Empress Hotel in Victoria with our sexy (and single ;) ) model Leigh Lauren Brown

Buchart Gardens in Victoria.


One last Kayak adventure.

The troll under the bridge.

We went out to Sushi our last night in Seattle with Leigh and Aly. Leigh was looking over the bar to see the chef at work and just happened to dip her hair in this little candle. Her hair caught on fire and the half the restaurant reeked like burnt hair. We were all laughing so hard. Leigh reeked for a couple days after the event.

My last view of my city.

Just a little glimpse for those interested in what a miraculous beauty can be created when I pose with flowers.
