tis the season...

This time of year in Utah is certainly the weirdest. A little rain here, maybe a little snow here, oh and lets add in some sunlight here. :) This is the time of year when you turn your AC on during the day and heater blasting when the sun goes down. Many people love the beginning of Spring but for me it's just a confusing time.
You walk through department stores and see cute skirts, tanktops, and swim suits! Oh but then you walk outside in your boots, coat, and umberella. This time of year really pulls at my style ideas. I spend extra amounts of time standing in front of my closet wondering what to wear today! I purchased these super cute skirts at American Eagle but just can't seem to stay warm long enough to wear them around outside yet! And the tights style is still hard for me to get right Ha Ha.
I had these random thoughts on my way to Orem today to take a test....in my sweater, jeans, and slippers (I find it valuable to be comfortable while taking a test...this means no style intended). And I can't wait to spend next weekend in St. George where I'm hoping it's warm enough to wear my new skirts!
Bring on the Summer :)

afternoon card making

Thanks to attending Bobbie's Stampin Up party, Emilee taught us how to do this quick and easy layout for cards :) The heart one on the far right is the one we put together at the party and I made the other two today. Super Cute!

Cupcakes...Again!

Jerrica and I made cupcakes last night :) we were up to midnight having a blast. We put in the movie Julie and Julia, but ended up talking and making cupcakes instead! I did watch the movie just barely and it is really cute. It is one of those inspirational chick flicks...kind of like after watching Chocolat, Becoming Jane, or Last Chance Harvey. Maybe you guys have seen similar movies and understand what I'm talking about. By the way, I really like those movies I mentioned :)
Anyways...
these cupcakes are super duper cute. We made the little bees (yes that is what they are) with yellow jelly beans, wrapped with tootsie roll for the stripes and white spice drops for the wings. If you have been in the grocery store lately you may have seen the Family Circle magazine, these are the featured cupcakes on the cover. They aren't perfect but I believe we did a darn good job. Especially for these being my second batch of cupcakes I have ever decorated :) We continued our creativeness by adding little sprinkles behind the bees as if it's their little "buzz" path, I guess you would call it. And the random flowers were made out of the other colors of spice drops.
Now that I have decorated ladybug cupcakes and now bee cupcakes, I only have orange, white, black, and green jelly beans left :) What to do next.......................

Harlem Globetrotters

I bought tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters on Monday, February 8th. I asked on Smithtix for the best seats available and we got section 19 (courtside) seats 17 and 18, and row B. I was nervous about the whole "row B" thing. We have Jazz season tickets and we have never heard of this row B. :) It ended up being the second row from the court! As you can tell by how close we are to the players. This show/b-ball game was really fun. These guys are great and very talented! Everyone should take the opportunity to see them live. I posted two pics but you really have to see these guys in motion to really understand. so I will put a few videos too :P
