Devan and I have this thing... One time I asked him how much he loved me through a text. His response after a couple minutes was "mucho grande picante!" For some reason this saying has stuck! I know it doesn't make sense at all in Spanish, but it sums up our love. Direct translation: so much spicy!... Ya. I don't know why it stuck, but we say it all the time. It's kinda our thing.

Yesterday marked five months of marriage for devan and I. Honestly it has gone by so fast and at the same time I feel like we have been together forever already! (We have been together about 2 years now) So here is a little photo montage of a couple of our best times these past months. I have come to love him more and more every day! He works so hard for us and studies so hard in his schooling. So many days he comes home and helps me with stuff for my etsy business or other little things- and he doesn't complain! He is the best thing that ever happened to me! 

Have a happy day everybody! Do something nice for somebody:)

Yesterday I got an email from my wedding photographer Lyndsey Fagerlund and she let me know that MY WEDDING was featured on the Utah Bride And Groom Website!! How cool is that?! I was pretty excited. I loved my wedding (shocker I know), but I am so happy that so many others can see it now. I put so much love and time into all of the details- as did all of the wonderful friends and family that helped me. Lyndsey is an amazing photographer and definitely captured the day beautifully.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I am spending it sewing curtains, cleaning my home, writing up instructions for some classes my mom will be teaching soon, AND painting some signs for customers. Busy busy busy around here!

With Halloween being one of my favorite holidays I decided to have some friends over to carve pumpkins and have a little party. It was so much fun decorating our home and I love how it turned out.

First I decided to create my bat wall. About a month ago I mentioned this was on my to-do list and I finally got around to it this week. I love how it turned out!

It is so easy to do! first I just traced out half of a bat. I only traced out half so that when I was using it as a stencil I could just flip it over and the bat would be symmetrical. I had two different bat patterns because one was going to be 3D. After that I just cut all of the bats out and taped them to the wall!

For the party we had soup, homemade bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, caramel apples, and candy! 

The banner was so EASY to make. It took  three sheets of paper. the Letters were all from one sheet of my moms Halloween Collection this year. Then I alternated black and spiderweb as the background. I threaded ribbon through it and that's it!

Chicken tortilla soup and cheesy broccoli soup.

Devan is so cute and wanted to help decorate. He placed spiderweb throughout the rooms to make it feel "spooky". He personally requested that I posted pictures of his handiwork.

His comment as he decorated this picture is that it made us look old and dead... yay?

And now I will stop babbling and you can see the rest of the fun pictures from the night. We went to a pumpkin patch right by our house and had oodles of fun!

Ok. I'll admit it. I've been a COMPLETE slacker. I have been busy it's true, but if I'm being completely honest I just have not been motivated to blog. But I'm back:)  progress right?

First of all I want to say that while this blog is open for all to read and I love having people visit (I really do), I started it to have a way for myself to journal. I am not very good at writing on my journal every day but I think that blogging is a more fun journal! It's a way to include family and friends- even friends I haven't met yet- in daily adventures both big and small. I love knowing that family I might not talk to every day can come and see what is going on in our lives and feel close to us. So basically just thank you everyone for coming to read! I have been overwhelmed by the great number of people who visit this blog everyday to read and share in our life. 

The past two weeks have been busy, fun, eventful, had the ups and downs, and included and lot of family and friends. 

My dad and family came camping in the canyon right by our house and we got to go and stay with them for one night. It was mine and Devans first time camping together so it was exciting.
We even had a fun setup to watch the BYU vs U game:) 

The next day after camping I got the news of a neighbor, family friend, and one of my best young childhood friends father passing away. I was shocked and saddened and felt so sad for his family. The next weekend I was able to attend the funeral and celebrate his life. He was one of the greatest dads and was such a great influence. It was heartwrenching watching this friend go through this. I am so thankful to know of eternal families and the blessings of the gospel. This gospel brings so much peace. 

My mother in law Ann had her birthday and we got to all go downtown for dinner and then dessert. It was so fun:) I have seriously married into the best family. 

Sorry the photo is so blurry. I had a nice old man take it.

Oh I couldn't forget this gem of my brother in law Jordan..

Awkward photo of myself.. But my sister helped color my hair just a smidgen darker for fall. I Love it! 

I love my job watching three cute kids everyday! 

During coloring time I have fun too!

Ok get ready for this ridiculousness! Just look. Look at this beauty of a chair below! The real beauty of it you ask ( I mean besides the obvious)? It was 25 dollars! They were practically giving it away. The woman selling it asked if I was going to recover it. I just looked for a second and said NO! How could you even suggest it?

It is seriously so cute it our office and I can't wait to finish it to show you all. Devan got sick of all of my work scattered around the living room and I told him I couldn't work in the gloomy office so now it is getting worked on. My etsy sign business has taken off! So many requests! I can only handle one large sign a week and maybe two small. They take a while to make you know? But I have requests for the next month at least! It is great:) I also write up instructions for my moms classes she travels and teaches so I am quite busy! 

Last but not least it is general conference weekend. For any of you that are not LDS this happens two times a year and the whole church gets to watch the leaders of our church speak to us. It is a wonderful weekend:) if you want to learn more just click on the "I believe" link above!

Hope everybody has had a great weekend!
