Here Goes Nothin'...

Ok. I have been thinking about this post for a while, and it makes me nervous, which makes me ramble. So as I am about to ramble, prepare yourself: In in the past eight or nine years in an effort to decorate my house, I have discovered that I LOVE a good project. Especially if it involves paint and a blank wall, or paint and a really ugly piece of old furniture. I've fixed up many DI finds, garage sale treasures and hand-me-downs. I've painted/refinished numerous sets of kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Some things have turned out beautifully, others not so much. I think my husband has come to the conclusion that I am a crazy person more than once. But I really do love to do it. I get a sense of accomplishment from it. Plus, as a mom it doesn't involve children or dinner or dirty toilets. Anyway, I'll try to get to the point. I've always thought that if I could do this for a living it would be a dream job. I'm aware that something like this will not support my family. I'm not that much of a crazy person. But lately I've seen a few shops and sites where other people are doing exactly what I want to do, so I decided why not give it a try. I'm starting out very small and I don't know if it anything will ever really come from it, but at least its an excuse to feed my habit! I created another blog- -on which to post my projects and get some feedback, which is the nervous part because normally I'm perfectly happy to not know what people really think. (Not that my house is the fine house, but isn't it a cute name? Plus I love that song and the very fine house was already taken in the land of bloggers.) So to finish my long-winded explanation, please take a look at my new blog and if you feel so inclined, let me know what you think.

I Heart Kyle Korver

I guess if Tyler can have a man crush on Deron Williams (or D Will-that's right, look at me, I know the lingo), then its ok for me to have a little crush of my own. My reasons for crushing on Kyle Korver are twofold: 1) um, he's pretty cute. Have you seen him? 2) For a few months now, random, unrelated people haved said things to us like, "we watched the Jazz last night and we think Asher looks like a mini Korver." Seriously, a lot of people have made this comment-at least more than two :) I got to see firsthand last night just how cute Korver/Big Ash is because Crae was super-duper nice and sent Tyler five tickets to the Lakers game that he wasn't going to be able to use himself. Thank You!!! We took Dax and Hayes and Grandma Jo and it was FABULOUS! Tyler so wants the boys to love sports, and I think last night might have sealed the deal. They cheered and boo-ed and jumped around and I am telling you-Hayes danced and clapped and bopped his head until I thought it would fall off. I don't think he can help it-he just feels the beat:) It was an awesome game to see, close scoring all night and in the end the Jazz won 113-109. Thank you again Crae, we loved it.

Super Bowl XLIII

While I'm sure that Tyler, Broc and Callan would disagree, I have to say that I think the two 30-second commercials in 3D were the most anticipated and appreciated part of Super Bowl night. They were extremely effective commercials as well: it is now imperative that we see Monsters VS Aliens in 3D as soon as possible:)

And because Camille is such a neglectful mother and I am such a shameful aunt/hostess, one of the twins-Oakley, specifically- snuck away and highly enjoyed this large dish of tasty, horse-meat based dog food as her Super Bowl after dinner snack. Mmmmmm. Ok, so I'm not totally sure that it's made from horse meat. Pretty sure it's not, as a matter of fact. And yes, it is a very large, yicky bowl. But then, I have a very large, sometimes yicky dog. But still. Yummy.
