this week

1 - p has been pretending a lot lately. she found a little cupcake shaped picture frame and was pretending to take bites and would nod and say, "mmmm, cupcake!" i thought i would make her a few crocheted cupcakes and here is the first:

2 - we went to the zoo with ashlee and her boys. it was a great trip. we saw the african section of the zoo...we usually don't wander over there, so it was fun & we rode the skyfari (ski lift from the back of the zoo to the front & front to back) for the 1st time.

3 - i framed our diplomas. i think it is cool that we both got bfa degrees from the same school-our tassels our the same color and everything mine "07" & his "09."

4 - last night i made these pizzas from the family favorite recipes blog recipe here. i have been wanting to make them for a while & when i saw there was a sale on the domestic feta at Henry's market, so i thought it would be a good week to thy 'em out. they were so yummy! we used our indoor grill, because i was in the middle of a big project on out balcony & the grill was inaccessible. bryan wanted a pepperoni one, so we did one pepperoni for him.

5- i have been busy trying to figure out my display for the queen bee market. i left most of my display items in utah when we moved, so i am trying to figure something out that is new & fun. ashlee has been VERY helpful. thank you! hope to see some of you there tomorrow:)! i have also begun the making for the renegade.

weekend update...1600+ miles driven

i forgot to mention that we were planning a trip back to utah! well we were and we just got back. we decided that it would be cool for bryan to see his teachers and walk at graduation with his graduating class. go BYU ID!

bryan insisted that we take his car, a 2000 ford focus that has been totaled 3 times and we are still driving it. it has 1 operating window, the fan is broken (so no a/c or heat or air of any kind,) & it is a stick shift (so i can't really drive it.)

we left san diego on tuesday night and drove to primm, nv. we got to stay in a very classy hotel/casino called buffalo bills...very classy.

we arrived in provo on wednesday night. the drive on wednesday was pretty rainy and we were really happy to be out of the rain & the car. every time we decide to drive a long distance, it rains & it rains hard (ei. our trip out to NYC last summer, our trip to find and apartment in december.)

megan wanted me to help her make some flower hair clips, so we did a robert's run and bought supplies and threw some together.

i took bryan to one of our favorites spark in downtown provo on thursday, we picked up the cap and gown, and then bryan wanted to get the car's tired rotated and balanced. the brakes were also acting really weird i guess we needed to have some serious work done on the left axle...
of course we did! we were lucky enough to find a garage that was cheap, do good work and work at night. we dropped the car off at 7pm and picked it up at 10pm. we really lucked out on that and we were really glad it didn't die on the way home.

to make ourslves feel better we ate these:

on friday we got to wake up at 6am..happy face. bryan's graduation was at 8am and bry needed to get in line at 7am. it was rainy and cold. i didn't pack for rainy and cold, but i should know taking a spring trip to UT pack for every kind of weather!

bryan's graduation convocation was awesome. the keynote speaker was funny and interesting and the whole thing was quite short. i can't tell you how proud i am of bryan.

after the graduation we took like 1 picture and then ran to the cars...ooh and we grabbed a delicious cinnimon roll and byu chocolate milk on the way to the car. yum!

we ate breakfast with krystal, aaron, their boys & tami & kerry. it was a lot of fun to hang out and talk. p loved playing with her cousins.

we then drove up to hooper to have a pizza partay with the sparks, strong, hilton & lemmon crowd. did you know pizza is my favorite food?!?! i know i sound like a 1st grader when i say that.

baby graham is getting so big!

we came back to p-town on saturday afternoon and enjoyed an evening with the whites. they made bryan's favorite...lamb and magleby's chocolate cake.

it was a short and sweet visit.

we left early on sunday. it was a BEAUTIFUL day. if only we had A/C. we were all sweating like we'd run a marathon and we were stuck in stand still traffic in LV for 1 +hr. when the sun set life was SO much better. we pulled into our little apartment at 11 last night.

p in the car. she was such a good little passenger.

shop update.

i know i have already shown you all of these items, but i thought i would do a little preview of my spring/summer goods that are now up in the shop & will be making an appearance at the summer shows i will be a part of.

slate blooming headband

i have posted a few more colors of the blooming headband in the shop.

all blue cluster band
sunshine cluster band

cluster clips in pink, sea, citrus & violet

i took these pictures with a timer (i am too shy to ask anyone to model for me) it was tricky and tedious, BUT really fun. maybe by my next set of product photos i will have some san diegans willing to model for me.

have a GREAT weekend! xoxo e
