What did you think?

So now you know where I get my craftiness! lol. Don't you miss mauve and blue?! On the bottom of the bunny is my name and 93! So that would make me 10 when I made this. Not too bad, right? I thought I definitely needed a picture before she finds a new home.
We didn't get a pic with mom and Becky because they came in a different car and were a bit aways from us, although Nat went and sat by Becky and my mom came over by me and Emily. We were sitting in this pic on the rail of the balcony which is why I look like I'm going to fall forward ;)
Here he is!! There were 2 openers for him. What?! Isn't one plenty? I certainly thought so, especially since it took the stage crew about 15 minutes for each one to set up. Not to mention that before David came on, we literally waited 30 minutes, no lie! It was ridiculous! The concert started at 7:30 with Benton Paul singing, then another girl sang and David didn't get on stage until 9:30! Good thing all the 12 and 13 yr old girls were chanting David and Archie. Ha ha!
Okay, now this part is hilarious! This is when he sang his famous song "Crush". If you look at the picture, the two girls in from the left apparently won a contest and got to be on stage for the song. David sang the first part of the song, then when he got to the chorus, he sang to each girl for a minute. It was the most AWKWARD thing ever! The girls got up on stage and had no idea what to do! They were kind of dancing, but I'm sure they felt stupid! Anyway, that was quite funny.
Here's a little recording I took. Enjoy!
It was actually quite fun to be there. The crowd was seriously going crazy all the time, jumping, singing. It was very entertaining to watch all these teenie boppers get soo excited about the songs. He was quite the showman. He wasn't all shy like in AI, but it was hard for him to say anything because the girls were always screaming!

Last year we were in the same position with them and waited all the way until orientation to find out they had no spots left. But this year we obviously have more options. I think Justin would really like this school, but unless by some miracle they find a place for him in a month, we're probably not headed there. Three schools left.

Happy Birthday to Justin today! The big 2-6, getting closer to 30! Ha ha. Justin worked tonight, so we didn't really have a great celebration this evening, but we celebrated in Star Valley over the weekend.
Molly and I love you so much! We are so lucky to have you in our lives. You are thoughtful, kind, funny, entertaining, smart, good looking and a great husband and dad to name a few. Thanks for all you do for us! We hope this is a great year for you.
Nicole and Molly

Today Molly has thrown up twice! This is the first time she's ever thrown up (besides when she was a super spitty baby!). We feel so bad for her but we're hoping it's just a 24 hour flu type of a thing. We're in Star Valley and she was in the nursery yesterday with about 10 kids, which is 8 more than she's used to (Molly is one of two in our nursery at home)! We think she may have picked up something there. Hopefully she's better tomorrow for the long drive home.

And for those of you wondering, we will ALWAYS bleed blue no matter what :) ha ha.

The other day I was at Home Goods/TJ Maxx. I was on the home goods side and was walking around and found this bag. I thought it was so cute and thought, how perfect would that be for a little over nighter or a weekend trip to SV? And you just couldn't beat the price. At that point I thought of Becky Bloomwood from Confessions of a Shopaholic.
“Luggage! Suitcases and holdalls and stuff like that. As I wander around the department, looking at Louis Vuitton suitcases and calfskin bags, I’m quite thrown. Quite shocked by myself. Why on earth have I never considered luggage before?”
Ha ha. I remembered that part of the book while checking out the bag and just had to laugh at myself.
Ok, this is too funny. Molly is at the age/stage where she thinks she needs to crawl over something that's at a different level. That probably doesn't make much sense, but watch her in this video and it will! We saw her do this and were laughing so hard! She did it every time!

Bad News: The bad news you can read in the pic below:
They're appetizer plates!! What?! I wanted salad/dessert plates!!
The most frustrating thing is that I specifically called customer service and asked what size they were because for some reason the webpage didn't list the size (weird, don't you think?). The lady told me she didn't know and there wasn't really a way to find out basically--does that make any sense to you? I said um, how about you call the warehouse and see if someone can go get the plates and check? She said they can't do that. So I'm waiting on the phone for her because there has to be SOMETHING they can do. She talks to a couple of people while I'm holding, takes my number and says she'll call me back the next day. She never does.
In the meantime I had already sent an email to the company asking what size they are (I did this before I decided to call). So the next ay or so I got an email back saying that they were salad sized plates.
So then I ordered the plates thinking they were the size I wanted to fit in my plate rack. Today when they arrived they obviously were appetizer plates. Now I don't know about you, but I have no use for appetizer plates! So I call customer service telling them this whole story and that if they will pay for shipping, I will gladly return them.
Good News: After holding, the rep tells me that they will credit the money I've paid back to me and that I can just keep the plates and do what I want with them! Crazy, huh? I said 'are you sure?' They said there was no way to have them pay for shipping so that's what they decided.
Anyone want to buy them from me? ;) ha ha. I'm really sad though because I think they are so cute, they're just not big enough to sit in my plate rack :(
Well, here's the shamrocks we made. The wood is from The Wood Connection.
And then here's the rest of the things I've collected for the holiday. The bouquet and candles I got at Michael's on sale. The pillow says Happy St. Patty's Day and I got it at the Quilted Bear on sale. And the pitcher and candlestick holders I already had. Now I'm somewhat festive :)

Here's the address if you are in the vicinity:
6680 S. 300 W. Murray, UT.
Essentially, it's located just southwest of Fashion Place Mall, right by the trax. I also picked up a flyer saying they'll have an "embellishment workshop" this Saturday, the 7th, from 11 am-3 pm anytime with their designer there giving her tips! I'm going to try to make it and I'd love company!
Oh and I picked up a shamrock that I'm going to decorate...I'll post pics when I'm done!
