Date Night

This past week I took Kyle on a date to see Brian Regan. He was here in Utah at Thanksgiving Point. For those of you who may not know who he is, he's an awesome comedian! His jokes are clean and pretty funny! It takes a lot to make me laugh he was great. Kyle loves him and thought it was great to see him live! Here are a few pictures.

It was held at the Waterfall Amphitheatre. We had to walk through Thanksgiving Point Gardens to get there. It was pretty neat. :)

Christmas in August?

I did it! I finally completed a project that I started way back in last November! I got this bright idea from my sister Christy to make and personalize our Christmas stockings. I searched for stockings when all the new Christmas decorations were coming out last year and didn't find anything I liked. I thought it was so cool how Christy had sewed all of her little family's Christmas stockings and thought it would be a fun tradition to start myself. How hard could it be, right? Well, it wasn't about how hard it was but how long it would take! I thought I could have it done by Christmas with my long Thanksgiving and Christmas break, but it didn't happen. So I have had these stockings unfinished just sitting in my closet for the past 8 months! I decided to make it one of my goals to finish them before the summer was up. And I did it! It feels good to finally have them complete. It was a huge project in my eyes, with every tiny bead, sequin, and fabric piece sewn on by me. I’m looking forward to stuffing these come Christmas!
