Not another BRA!!!

So, on Saturday morning Rhett's sister Bevin called and said that her friend Tracy(who is going to be wearing the same dress as me at the wedding), got her cute little Vikkie C's(Victoria Secret) package... and well she opened it up and to her surprise............................NO DRESS!!! She got a very large(DD) cream bra!! At first she thought it was a joke, but no someone person at the Vikki-C's factory made a HUGE mistake!!! Hmm... will i ever get my dress????
I am also so excited for arizona, because my Dad just called and said that they have announced that they are building another temple in Arizona!!! They are buildind one in Gilbert and one near Thatcher. I am so excited, for the members down there... however i do wish that they could build one in the west valley, but i guess we will just keep hoping and praying and doing some missionary work in the west and maybe one day we will be blessed with a temple that is not an hour away!! However i am very excited for the little mormon community called Thatcher, they have a longer drive then me! And they deserve it so much!!!

Umm.. Are you serious????

I know i just posted, but here is what happened today... remember the dress i showed you for the wedding?? Well, Rhett's mom kindly ordered it for me and i was so excited when i got home from work that there was a package on the counter!!! But i opened it up and... well i ordered this.... And this is what i got... hmm.. a little small don't you think?? Can you really picture me in this at the wedding??? To be honest it is definetly not the right color!! The packing slip says DRS: WRAP TAFFETA -MELON?? So I ask what happened???


Okay.. so i havent had much to blog about lately... i think i really need to jump on the "kid" bandwagon and then i can post cute pictures of my kids... as for me and rhett well it is just always school and work!!!! It seems like we have been really busy, with who knows what??? I really couldnt tell you, but we have been busy, i have been working like 6 days a week, had some good ole' cub scout stuff a lot lately it seems like, and rhett has had so many tests and he has been chosen to be a site coordinator for one of the clubs down here it is called UMOM. I cant ever remember exactly what that stands for, its like United Methodist Outreach Ministry (rhett just informed me). Anyway he has to go down to south phoenix(SCARY!!) twice a month and also organize volunteers to go with him... i am hoping to go and take pictures of this place after school gets out... Rhett says it is pretty Ghetto- i dont know if i really want to see it, it will make me nervous to know he is going there til 9-at night! Well, here is a quick update.. I having been searching and searching for something to wear to Rhett's sisters wedding, and i finally found it... at Victoria Secret online...who would have thought, after all those hours at the mall!!! I think it is cute, I was also excited because my new favorite website Brad's Deal's had coupons for good old VS!!! So how exciting.... glad that is done, since the wedding is in less than a month!!! I also have been trying to find a guest book for here and i finally found one of those at a bridal shop here... but i am not sold on it, if anyone has any other ideas... although it is pretty cute.. ill post pictures later....Here is the dress.... here colors are mango, green and purple, from all this shopping i know mentally noted that there are about 10 shades of mango! Mango w/pink, mango w/red, mango w/orange, etc.... this below is just mango to me... so hopefully it fits!! Oh, one more item of business, my house is starting to look like finals again...
I am not going to blame all this on Rhett though, we are moving to a different apartment next week, and i have been lazy also. I have been cleaning out, and organizing, and packing a little, and i figure why put it away to just get it back out??? So my house is quite on the messy side, which i am really a clean person as most of you know, kind of a fanatic about it... To be honest, i am feeling a little antsy with all this stuff out and about, i feel like i cant get anything done til i move. Because i dont want to make a bigger mess, or make another mess and then feel like i have to clean it out, or not pick it back up because we are moving.. Am i weird... hmm.. don't answer that! But this little weirdness explains my unfinished craft below...
Sometimes when i get bored, i wander around the Home Depot, by my house to see what i can find... i am actually starting to LOVE the home dep-o. Anyway i had seen this cute idea at a scrapbook store with canvas blocks, and i was at home depot and they had these wood blocks already cut... so i painted them and put these little hanger things on them, and tied them together with ribbon. It is pretty cute so far, but i dont know how to finish it... should i put the word LOVE or FREI, but i have a lot of things that say Frei, so i dont feel good about that, i also bought to more blocks and thought i would put FAMILY, with some pictures of us... but i think that is too long.... Any ideas????

I also drove to mesa last week for Creating Keepsakes scrapbook convention.. they have this one booth that is my favorite everything is $1- or $1.50!! All these items below were at this booth!! And if you scrapbook, you know this is a good deal! Chipboard for a dollar!!! They also gave out these pizza boxes, and for $20- you could fill the box with as much 12x12 paper as you want, and well i fit about 120 papers or so in my box. And it was cute card stock too, it wasnt the cheap stuff!! I was so excited!! And so now i am all geared up to finishing my wedding scrapbook!! I cant wait.. i just havent been able to use my fun stuff, because once again, why make a mess just to pack it up next week???

Shhh... it is a secret!!!

Okay, so i was watching the Today show, an everyday morning favorite of mine, i am not sure if i have a crush on Matt Lauer, or i like to watch Meredith make a fool of herself, or watch Ann grab every ones arm or leg at least once throughout the day, she is seriously a very touchy feely person- Rhett and i watch her sometimes just to see how much she flirts, actually lets be honest i think Al is my favorite!!! or maybe i just like it because they provide really non-bias(well, kind of)good news.... Who knows "Why I love Today...?" But on with my post.... during the Today Show today they talked about this website, http://www.bradsdeals.com/ it has soooo many online coupons!! That is the draw back though, they are "online" coupons. But if you are like me i LOVE to shop online! And they have coupons for everything, Target, computers, luggage, best buy, Barnes and noble, Michael's even has a printable coupon on there... oh my heavens it is great so I just thought i would share it for all you online shoppers out there!!!

Family Photo's

So, a couple months ago, Rhett and I had some "family" photos done... I am lucky enough that my sister 'n' law Amy....actually i don't like that word "n' law..." So we will just say my sister Amy, is a photographer, she does such a great job!! She was nice enough to take some photos of us when we went home for Christmas.... So, here are couple of our favorites! Thank you Amy!!!

Can you say Cocky???

I found this on someone else's blog and thought it was interesting... i wasn't going to post the one about my name.... It sounds a little boastful... i am not sure if these are really even close to our personalities, but thouught it was interesting none the less-

What Rhett Means

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are truly an original person. You have amazing ideas, and the power to carry them out.

Success comes rather easily for you... especially in business and academia.

Some people find you to be selfish and a bit overbearing. You're a strong person.

You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.

You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.

At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.

You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.

You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.

What Sarah Means

You are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.

You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.

You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.

You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.

You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.

You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.

You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

School & Work

Well, i have been really horrible about the blogging thing lately, so here is a little catch up on our lives...
School & Work
I feel like we are sooo boring, but everytime our families call that is about all that is new... or the same?
So here you go, here is some detail...

My family came to visit last weekend and sadly i didnt take 1 picture can you believe it?? It was so great to see them!!! My little brother had an ATV race, we made it to a quick dinner at P.F. Changs, and did a little shopping and JorDan ended up taking 4th at the race, way to go Stud!!! Well, like I said most of Rhett's time has spent at school and studying, however he did manage to replant our tomato plants in these cute pots, because they are getting BIGGER!!

And we have A tomato!!!
My poor little husband, this is him most nights, April is going to be a little crazy at school, two tests a week. And then finals are the first part of May. It is going to be a long six or so weeks for him. But that follows by three long months of summer!! We are SO excited!!!!

Nope, just Rhett's 'props' for teaching his class how to breathe into a Spirometer(an apparatus for measuring the volume of air inspired and expired by the lungs). Pretty creative i thought!!

Besides work, i have been doing a few crafts here and there, so here is an update...

A couple of my friends and I made these cute wall hooks, we got the idea from my friend Sarah, and so hopefully she doesn't mind that we copied(thanks Sarah!). We finished the hooks a while ago, but i just barely figured out a way to hang the picure frames, in a way that i sort of like...

Any suggestions????

I also made these cute frames, a couple weeks ago... I was a little nervous, but they turned out SO CUTE!!!!
It was my friend Criscell's birthday and this "was" going to be her cute b-day gift. But i left the house for an hour and the cute little rice krispy flowers were drooping off the stick! So, instead she got a plate full of rice krispies instead of this cute flower pot! It was sad... oh well next year we'll try again!!
