A quote from today...

Today one of our students came in and said:

"Becky! I beat (insert boy's name here) again at Pokemon."
I turned to the boy and asked, "Did she really?"
With his head hung and in his monotone voice he said, "Yeah she did, 10 times..."

I also apparently have a new best friend. I gave her a pencil. That's what made us best friends.

Martha Returns...

Noah is not the only crafty person in this house. I have recently been feeling a bit drab when it comes to the old wardrobe. So, being as poor as I am and feeling quite put out by it, I took matters into my own hands. I did a little research and found some awesome necklines that I can alter. Here is my first, very poorly sewn, experiment in operation "Change Becky's Wardrobe."

And just to show you what a dynamic duo we are(yes I can brag, this is MY blog) we did a little collaborative project. This one requires a shout out to the inspiration, Jessica.

And to continue in my endeavors to become more like Martha Stewart, but on a very tight budget, I did this little number at the baby shower we put on this evening.

I'm crafty!

Noah's Jewelry

On another note, look what I've been wearing because my husband is talented!

We do sell these so if you're interested let me know. We do custom orders!

Shout Out to my 9 Faithful Followers

And so my faithful followers I will lead you through the events of this weekend.

Saturday morning dawned way too early and I went to exercise. I came home to find my husband cleaning. I'm sure that the spirit of the holiday motivated him in this act.

The afternoon was spent gallivanting around town. This included a trip to Costco where Noah bought me roses. I watched him do it. He tried to hide them, but found it unsuccessful seeing as I was the one swiping the debit card. I still give him kudos for actually buying the roses, they smell fantastic. Our evening was concluded by the following:

We attempted to go to Macaroni Grill at first where we had reservations. Unfortunately, somehow they misplaced our reservation. We're all still very puzzled as to how this happened. Luckily, one of our party used to work at The Old Spaghetti Factory and according to him, "It's always dead." We ended up going there. It was awesome!

The night ended with a fabulous stake dance.

And thus, Happy Valentine's Day to one and all.

A few Suprises

I was perusing Craigslist and found a listing for someone to paint store windows. I called and got the job! So this afternoon I did this:

Shawna, the owner, was wonderful to work with. They looked like their Zumba classes were a blast. If you're interested they're located in Spanish Fork and they have a website here.

When I got home I went to go to the bathroom and found the following in my bathroom sink.

An Excerpt from this Evening's Conversation

"Let's watch our money disappear!" exclaimed Becky as she scrolled to their bank's homepage. "Yaaaaaay, It's like a game show!" remarked Noah.

And this is why everyone wants to be us.

Today, Yesterday, and Always

I realize that I've not been an avid blogger. There's little to say on this end lately, thankfully.

Here it goes:
*My surgery is hopefully happening the first week of April. So far, no new attacks.
*I've joined an exercise program through BYU. Go Zumba!
*Our landlord fixed our light outside! No more wild animal scares slash it wasn't a scare at all, just Noah's scarf.
*Noah had a very successful show up in the HFAC. Next show coming Summer 2010!

And that's about it. Really.
