Dave Matthews Band Concert

So things have pretty much been a blur these past few weeks. I'm currently visiting my family in Arizona. I've been here for a little over a week, and before that, we had company staying with us from Oregon, and I still will be in Arizona another 2 weeks! So I'm trying to blog from my parents computer, which is a chore in itself. They have a PC, I'm used to my MAC so putting my pictures on here is a bit challenging. They are all out of order and I'm not about to try and spend 20 more minutes fixing them! Anyway, before I left for AZ, Tim and I went to see DMB in SLC. It was amazing, considering Tim has never seen them live and I'm pretty sure the last time I saw them was in Chicago in 2000.

We had lawn seats, but I have never been to this venue before. I was pleasantly suprised at how close we actually were!
Amy and Tim came with us

I enjoyed the concert A LOT, Dave is my favorite band and I LOVE to see them perform, and their music is AMAZING live. Can't wait until I can go again!!!

favorite project yet

I have been wanting to put something above my bed for a long time. I have found several versions of this that I really like, but can't afford. So I decided to make my own instead.
I bought some contact paper at Wal-Mart and cut some designs out with it using my Cricut. Then I arranged them on the canvas that I had found awhile back at the DI. Then, I used my favorite color for my bedroom and sprayed the whole thing.
Take off the contact paper, and this is what you get!
{I am in love with it}
here is the cost:
Contact paper @ wal-mart: $5.97
canvas from the DI: $2.00
spray paint: free (already had it)
for a grand total of $7.97!!
(I still wish we could paint, but being in a rental makes that a little bit harder)


We took the kids to the derby here in town on Saturday. They had a blast!

It was so much fun, I haven't been to one in probably 7 years!

It was a fun weekend, we also went to eat Sushi for my birthday before the Derby. And after all the cars were crashed up, they had a fireworks show. We had fun, thanks for a fun day!


Let it be known that I intend to be 29 Forever! This weekend was my birthday and I don't intend to admit to ever being older than I am now. Anyway, we had a great weekend starting with my cake! My husband made me a coconut cake which we tried for the first time last year and I {loved} it so I asked him to make it again for me. mmmm....
Then Tim lit the candles and I think we almost started the house on fire
Staci brought over her new soft serve ice cream machine too, it was yummy....
Brandt loved it too


The other day I found Chase playing with Kardyn's tree house....
and came upstairs to find Kardyn playing with Chase's cars
