Has this ever happened to you? : Got to talking to someone and then once they finally told you their name you get giddy like a little school girl and just start jibbering and couldn't stop?
Totally happened to me over the weekend. We were at Cortate looking at couches and this girl comes in changing her mind on the fabric she ordered for her couch (totally something I would do, that's why we are waiting till next week to make our final decision since I am  the worst at buyers remorse!) Anyway her, Levi and I got to talking, figured out she's in my sisters ward and then she hands me a business card because she re-does furniture. And as soon I read her blog address the giddyness overcame me. It was like for me meeting a celebrity. Haha, Levi got a kick out of my reaction. 
Check her out here, she is a doll and has some mad skills if you need anything done!

Here is just a tease of her taste, and she can do so much more!



It's true, we are OFFICIALLY home owners and could not be more excited!!! It's a whole new feeling of being grown-up. {if that's what we should even call it!} The home is perfect, fits us to a T, and there is no fixing up needed! The original home owners left it in the greatest condition, thank you H and S!! We will probably paint a few rooms, replace the carpet in 2 rooms {maybe...} and that's it! We however own nothing...so let the couch, bed, dinning room tables, area rugs, decor and kitchen table hunting begin!! I am so excited to unpack all of our boxes and put our kitchen together, since that's all we really have...sad! Our savings for our home is going to dwindle rather quickly I feel...oh well, that's the joy of it! One room at a time :)



Wow one blog post last month, really? Well I guess the title speaks for it self then...
It's true, we've been "Trippin".
We spent 10 days in Maui last month and ever since we've gotten back my life has gone in
in extra fast forward, times 4 (just like our DVR).
Anyways, back to Maui!! My sister moved there in February with her husband and 2 boys.
They have a cute little place, 3min walking distance from the beach, 2 jeeps and 
pure freedom. They are living the life and we were able to get a tid bit of the 
life they live. Ahhhh.....

Black Sand Beach, so cool!
 Big Beach where the waves were SOO high! My sis got munched big time...poor thing.
 Road to Hana
 Lava Rocks and Big Beach
While checking out the turtles, Levi decides to jump in to take a closer look. Cool, right? We apparently 
were standing on top of a cave and in that cave was a shark, I've never seen Levi swim faster! 
We also went and saw the coolest blow hole! But my laptop hates me, (the feelings are mutual) and the pictures wouldn't rotate. How I long to use my MAC again....
 Twin Falls Hike
 We went down to Kam 3 almost every night to watch the sunset, eat the best pizza or BBQ, throw the frisbee and watch the whales.

10 days very well spent. If I could do it all over again I would. So Hills and Ry, if you're there at the end of this year, we might just be back!!!
(I had so many other pictures from the trip, but again my laptop hates me...and I had A TON  on my iPhone and a recent backup deleted everything I had, I am pretty upset about it and missing those Hawaii pics very much so.)
