Shout Out

I just wanted to take minute to do a little plug for a very good friend, actually I would call him family.
He didn't ask me to do this for him I just want to help get the word out about his business.

His name is David Catmull and he is in the business of refinishing furniture. He has a great passion for working with his hands and it definitely shows in his work. He is an honest, hardworking person whom (or is it who?) I would recommend to anyone, anywhere.  I just wanted to take a second and let everyone who reads this blog know about his business. If you want to see pictures of pieces he has finished or want more info he has started a blog which has a link on my side bar or you can click on the link right here:
Five Star Furniture Refinishing

David refinished a cabinet for my father in law and it looks A-MA-ZING! He is an artist in his craft and if you look at his work you can tell he strives for perfection. If you or anyone you know needs something refinished please send them to David, he will not disappoint.

David, I hope you don't mind me bragging about you a little and stealing a picture of your business card. :-)

Thanks as always for reading,

So as a follow up to my last post here are a couple of links for the things you have asked about.

First link is to Asylum 49. They do a haunted house in October but they offer ghost hunts during the other months, you will have to contact them to see when they are doing tours again. It is $20 a person which sounds a little steep but it was so much fun and something different to do.

Ghost Hunting

Second link is for the recipe I used to make the cupcakes in the picture. I tweaked it a little bit to my liking but you can follow the recipe as is and should be able to get a pretty yummy cupcake.

Cherry Cola cupcakes

So lately my craft/recipe blog has been pretty much non-existent and I hate that. I am working my butt off trying to get some new crafts and recipes up there. Keeping track of two blogs is harder then I thought it would be so I may eventually just combine it all into one. As far as the Cherry Cola cupcakes, I didn't make a lot of changes but I will post the ones I made as soon as I get my other blog back on track.

So that is all for now. If you have any questions about the ghost hunting or cupcakes let me know.

First of all I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of my friends who commented on my post yesterday. You may not believe it but it helped to just have a few words of support. THANK YOU!! I am starting to feel better, I think I just need some time and lots and lots of praying. I decided to delete that post because I felt it was me saying things out of disappointment. I still have some pangs of jealousy and still feel a little disappointment, but it is what it is and I just need to work things out.

Anyways this post is not a post with a lot of words and it's not a pity party or anything like that. This post is all about pictures!! I have been promising pictures for a while so here are a lot of pictures of things that have been going on the past few months and some of our house that is finally starting to feel like home. Enjoy :-)

P.S. if you weren't able to make it to my coupon class this link should give you the basic steps to saving money with coupons. If you have any questions please just ask and if I don't know I am sure I can find someone who does.

These pictures are from when we went on a ghost hunt at the Asylum 49 in Tooele, this past May. It was a fun experience and pretty spooky. All of these pictures were taken in pitch black rooms and the only way you can see them is with a really good flash. We saw a couple of shadows and caught a couple of voices. It was fun for something different and we want to come again. If you want to join us let me know. It is spooky fun.

Adam celebrated his 26th birthday May 24th. He is a great husband and a big goofball but that is why I love him.

For Father's Day we went to Copperton Park to have a barbecue with my side of the family. We started doing these barbecues once a month during the summer last year and we are hoping to have a few more barbecues this year.

What do you do when you are waiting for the Manti Pageant to start? Take lots of pictures and be silly while doing it. This was my second year going to the Manti Pageant and it was awesome! Last year, my first year, going it rained and was super cold this time it was beautiful weather and so much fun.

At the end of June I celebrated my 25th birthday. I made the cupcakes and not to brag but they were delicious. :-)

On Saturday we went to Stadium of Fire with my parents and little sister. Carrie Underwood rocked and the fireworks were great! I am not sure why the fireworks picture turned out like that but it looks pretty sweet.

Last but not least...pictures of our house.

The stairs to the upstairs. I didn't get any pictures upstairs because I didn't clean it so you will have to wait for those picutres, they aren't very exciting.

So for now that is all the pictures I have I will try not to wait so long to post next time.
