The Husband is Amazing

Yup, it's true. He was so bold to tell me that I should do a post just on how great he is.

He took time out of his busy schedule to help me switch up our blog design. It took a while, and after so many tutorials he just started playing around with it and then... WHAM! It was fixed. :)

So that's why he's such a great husband. Plus many many many more things.

The Election

This November, 3 city council seats were up for election as well as a bond to fund more schools in Alpine School District. Yup you guessed it! I totally voted! It seriously is so important for us younger folk to get out and vote. It is usually all those older people that go and vote. Nope not me. Ever since I was able to register to vote I have voted (except 1 election). I have realized how important it is to state how I feel. Voting for the right people in office (whether it is a democrat or republican- though some will argue with me on this) is what our country needs. Too bad nobody listened to me for the presidential election ;).

Here's proof today that I voted (yeah I guess the hubs did too, but he didn't want a sticker). So here's to me!

Hope you all voted! If you didn't make sure to get out and register for next year. Ya know it's gonna be a big one! :)

The BYU Doggie

Remember how I went to Swiss Day's (back in September) and found Hurley something pretty sweet but I needed to save it for it's own post? Well this is why...



We got it from woofware.com. They were so nice when I bought it at their little shop.

P.S. Does anyone know how to get rid of animals green eyes in photoshop? I have tried several tutorials and it looks super funny every time I finish. Please let me know if you do! :)

The Iron Man and Pepper Potts Photo Shoot

Yup.... That's who I got to be... Pepper Potts. 'cept I didn't have any red hair. But I tried to be as much like her as I could be. Our good friend Steph (Alexa) was kind enough to do a photo shoot of my "man" and me. Plus some other couples too, but I'd like to think that it was all for us. :)

The 4 questions people have been asking about his costume are:
1. Can you see out of it? Yes, he can see out of it, there are little slits.
2. What is it made of? High Density Foam (EVC Foam, PVC Foam, are some other names)
3. How long did it take? He says 6 months with the foam. I say since last November starting with paper, since he's pretty much been absent since then. ;P
4. Did you make it yourself? Yes he did. He is VERY proud of what he did and is going to be doing War Machine (Iron Man's buddy) next year. He won't start that till January... Hopefully it won't take him as long.

I'll add more photos when I get them, so please check back!

Oh and don't forget to vote for Chase's costume for a costume contest he entered: Hand made Iron Man costume




With the lights. Yes they all lit up, except the inside of the hands.
