I have updated my blog, so be sure to scroll down and see all the new posts!

So long ago, but still blog worthy

Before Halloween (so long ago, but our we finally got a card reader for our camera) we went to a corn maze out in Snohomish with our friends Soren, Kylee and Michael and Megan. We decided to not do the haunted maze, and just stick to the one you are supposed to get lost in. I think we went the 'normal ways' for about 20 min, then it turned into total chaos.

Bad picture, but this was taken right before going into the maze.

Taking a break before we started goofing off.

the guys decided it would be a great idea to see who could launch the corn husks the farthest. Minor detail, it was really dark and couldn't see them once they were like 5 feet away. But that didn't spoil their fun.

Soren jumping in on a nice self portrait

We decided to challenge the boys to a race to see who could get out of the maze first, Guess who won!!

Painting the kitchen

Cabin fever day 2! We didn't go to work again, all snowed it. But we wanted to do something besides watching TV, wrapping presents or staring at the walls. So we decided to paint some walls! We had gotten some paint chips from a walk to Lowes earlier this week. We wanted to get colors that would match our dishes. Here are some before pictures:

And here are some of the after!!

Not everyone can pull off a green and yellow kitchen, but we can!

We got cabin fever!!

Church was cancelled today, and we were inside all day yesterday. Needless to say we were getting a little bored. Nathan has been saying that I should straighten his hair before we get it cut. Well, we had nothing better to do, so while watching Its a Wonderful Life, I whipped out my straightener and created this!

He walked into the bathroom and started crying he was laughing so hard! I actually really like it, but he couldn't take himself that serious when he thought he looked like a member of the Beatles.

On the 9th day of christmas

my true love game to me

Nine Ladies Dancing
I must say, this 12 days of christmas person really knows me! I freaked out when I saw this! I was hoping to get it for christmas, but I got it before!!!

Christmas tree!

We have our christmas tree up, its actually been up for over a week now. Since we've only been married a year and a half, we don't have a ton of ornaments. So we get a smaller tree, but a real tree none the less. Nathan's mom would give her kids an ornament every year growing up so they would have them for when they got married. We have a lot of those ones on our tree. We have carried on a tradition that my family has and that's getting ornaments from places we go, or of things we have done in the past year. Also, we have colored lights on our tree. I have heard of a lot of people calling them ugly, but I like them. So they aren't ugly to everyone. And the 1 present under the tree? Yeah that's from nathan to me. Lets just say that christmas shopping is a little behind this year.....

On the 2nd day of christmas

my true love gave me:

Two Turtle Doves

1 bride is better than 7 if you ask me

Unless its 7 brides for 7 brothers! And that's exactly what my wonderful husband took me too last night!! (Actually last night, 12/4. This is an actual post of something that happened recently, surprising I know!)

If you have ever seen the movie, which is amazing, its just like it! But I would say way better because it's live. Nathan told me to not plan anything for friday because he wanted to take me to the play. But we were actually able to find tickets on Craigslist for thursday for 1/4th the cost of the face value!!

Our seats where on floor level on the right side about 20 rows back. They were awesome! Back far enough to see the whole stage and we were able to see over the peoples heads in front of us.

The music was superb. Did anyone else know the orchestra only has like 20 people in it at the 5th Ave? I had no idea! The amount of music they produce is insane! I had to keep telling myself that it was not recorded.

The singing was crazy! A few times I got goosebumps. I know that is kinda cliche, but I really did.

And of course, the dancing was great! They had I think like 4 or 5 big dancing scenes. I think I had the biggest grin on my face like a 7 year old during those parts. Actually probably through the whole thing.

Bottom line, go see it. It's a great production. And if you are going to see it, look on craigslist for tickets. You might be surprised with the deals that you can get from there.

Ok, so I'm a little behind

So I will (and have) posted a few make up posts for passed events. For all the work, I better get some good comments! ;)

I just want to be sure to have those memories saved, even if they are from like 2 or 3 months ago! Better late than never right? At least that's what i tell myself......

Chris and Allison invited a group of us over (before halloween) to carve pumpkins with them for FHE. We decided to go with just one pumpkin to carve, because I usually take about 3 hours to do just one. Here are some cute pictures of the evening!
