welp, I'm a married woman. As such, I think its time to take the plunge to a married blog. Come read about our newlywed adventures over here...

Monday, July 11, 2011


we have been busy sending wedding announcements to the president, 
getting our first wedding present, 
celebrating with balloons and fireworks and parades, 
plus swimming, 
getting crazy sunburns, 
cheap movies, 
shaved ice, 
marriage prep,
and work-work-working
yay summer!

Flava felons strike again

Remember last summer when the Flava Felons set off to try every frozen yogurt place in the Provo-Orem metropolitan area and give our reviews?

Well, my fellow Flava Felon is now on a mission in Argentina and the new trendy thing popping up everywhere is shaved ice shacks. Luckily, I have a new accomplice for Flava Felons 2.0

We've been talking about this undertaking for a few months, but since temperatures have been over 90 degrees, we decided summer is officially here and we can start. After hours of cleaning a grimy boys apartment on Saturday, we rewarded ourselves with our first stop--that turqouise shack in the Smith's parking lot.

Overall review: refreshing and good, but not our favorite. Plus we don't have much to compare it to.

Pros: good size, flavors, service, they had umbrellas, good people watching in the Smiths parking lot
Cons: deceptive pricing, the girl promised I would like sweet cream on mine and I didn't, we felt slightly WT (white trash) sitting in the Smith's parking lot.

With one place, down we are ready to tackle the 948 other shave ice places. welcome summer!

as in, you'll gag we're so cute.

My dear friend Kylee is a budding photographer and took some pictures of us on the most beautiful spring day. Here are some of our favorites (but no announcement potentials because we're sneaky like that and like to keep it a surprise)

44 days, people!

hobby shopper

Although I started a full-time job this week (I have a retirement plan. what?) I am finding I had a lot more free time than when I was in school. Therefore, I am currently shopping for new hobbies. I've tried lots of things, even going so far as wandering the aisles of Hobby Lobby for some inspiration (hobby is in the name of the store and I came away with nothing.

currently my free-time activities include the following:
cooking real meals
wedding planning
shopping but not buying
reading Nancy Drew books

Any suggestions of things I can add to this (somewhat pathetic) list? please and thank you.

a trio of instagrams

this weekend, we...
played miniature croquet and had a picnic with friends on Friday, when Andre and I matched
celebrated the boy's birthday a few days early with a meat-fest at Tucanos
scouted engagement picture locations in a monsoon (too busy dashing to take a picture)
