I Love Love Love These...

You are going to think I am crazy. Well, I am a little bit. But these hats are so AWESOME. Have you heard of Philip Treacy? Maybe not, but you probably have seen his work. Does this crazy hat look familiar?

I was watching Project Runway and the designers had to make an outfit to match a crazy hat designed by Philip Treacy. I fell in love with his outrageous designs. Have you seen these crazy do-hickeys that my fav Lady Gaga wears?



Well, it turns out that Philip Treacy made these for her. (I know Lady Gaga is crazy, but I love her.) When I found out that he was the designer of these weird things it made me love him even more. I had to look up more of his creations. He has some down right CRAZY things and then he as other more elegant things that some royalty wear and other hats that would be worn at the Kentucky Derby. I told Mack I want one some day. I don't know when that day will be because his hats are like hundreds and thousands of dollars. Mack's first question was, "where would you wear it?" I said I don't know, around the house but who cares, thats not important. I've picked out some of my favorites from his new collection for you to see. Some are weird and some actually seem wearable.

Guess what else I found out ... he has designed some shoes!!!! Look at these lacey heels. SOO COOL! I WANT THEM!


Well there you have it. I could go on and on posting more pictures of these fun hats. If anyone feels like they are in a giving mood and happen to have an extra thousand bucks lying around you can feel free to get me a hat.

You May Take Your Seats

So we have been up in Ogden since the 12th of this month, which has been 2 weeks, and we have also been without couches to sit on this whole time. When Mack and I got married my sister Nikki gave us some Ikea furniture to use till we got our own stuff. We finally got our own couches before we moved up here but they were back ordered so we just got them today. Mack and I have been sharing a chair from Ikea that is at the bottom of the picture. We would take turns sitting on the chair and sitting on the floor. You might be asking yourself why we didn't just use the furniture my sister lent us until we got our own...the answer is that we didn't want to bring it up here and then have to haul it back to Draper when we got our own stuff. (I've been reminding myself of our reasoning often).

Anywho, today was like Christmas for us. We got our couches and they are comfy and make our new place feel complete finally. All we need now are friends to come over and sit on them.

Photo Frenzy

My sisters and I just started a new website-venture together. It is called Photo Frenzy, isn't that such a good name? I like it a lot (I came up with it). Anyway, back to the website, it is dedicated to photography and artsy stuff. Each week we have a different theme and each day of the week one of us will post a picture. We're also going to have guest artists and other cool things as it develops.

This is the first week and we are introducing ourselves with self portraits. The website is When my sisters came to me with this idea I was a little scared because I am not a photographer by any standards, but that's kind of the point of this adventure. My sisters and I are all using different cameras and have different levels of photography experience.

I've posted my self portrait today so I hope you go check it out.

So here we are again...

I was trying to think of a title for this long overdue post so I went to my previous post list to make sure I wouldn't repeat a title. I realized that Mack and I have had several update posts like this where we have month absences from posting. I counted about 5 time periods where we have stopped updating and that may not seem like a lot, but considering we've only had this blog for less than 2 years I think we have a pretty bad track record. Blogging for us is like one of those things that you consistently do and then once you miss a day it gets easier to miss more and going to the gym or working out. My new fall resolution is to be more consistent with our blogging. My sisters and I are starting a new blog in August that I am excited for so I think it will help me to be better with this blog.

I won't bore you with a ton of pictures from the summer because I don't have a lot. Haha. At the end of April I graduated finally.

We moved to Draper to live with my sister until we moved up to Ogden. It has been soo fun to hang out with my sister and her family. She has three cute kids that have been fun to play with. Mack was not employed for a while so he has had a relaxing summer. This is a picture of Mack who fell asleep at the table after eating lunch. He had taken some medication that made him sleepy and just fell asleep. My sister thought he was just joking. After a couple minutes she realized he wasn't and had to capture the moment.

My friend Cody got married in July. Mack and I were really happy for her and I was really excited for the chance to make my first wedding card. Don't let the white intricate patter on the card fool you. I bought the paper like that.

Mack and I will be moving to Ogden in a couple weeks and we just found our apartment. We're excited. It's a triplex and we will live in the back apartment. Below is the house and to right in the front yard is a giant viking ship thing...I know, weird. Mack went by himself to check out the place so I haven't seen it in person yet.
That is the latest with Mack and I. We hope you liked the mini update and I promise we will be more frequent with our posts.
