We had my dad & sister Jeannene over to watch the BYU vs Air Force football game last Saturday. My family has a lot of superstitions about football, and I spent most of the morning doing super productive stuff! My mother in law Wendy & I went to Tai Pan Trading in Salt Lake for my first time - OH MY GOSH BAD IDEA! I am so in love with absolutely everything there! 3 bags of stuff later, we escaped the store and got home where Jeannene (my sister) & I set everything up and cleaned up as quickly as we could before we drove back to Salt Lake to pick up my dad. During the commercial breaks, I would get up and clean something - the dishes, the laundry, make the bed, anything - because a clean house means a BYU win! Unfortunately it didn't work this week, but hey I had a SUPER clean house and all of my Fall Decor put up so its ok!
We had a veggie tray, 2 different kinds of chips & BBQ Ranch burgers (Jake is the best BBQ'er EVER)
Because of our loss on Saturday, I made a goal on Sunday to be as productive as humanly possible this week. I made a VERY long To Do List and set off to run errands Monday morning after I got Jake tucked into bed (he works graveyards, so he sleeps when I am awake). I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond, Wal Mart, made a deposit at our bank and then a payment on the Jeep at a different bank, went to Tai Pan to return a few items that I had purchased too many of, went to IKEA to get some throw pillows for our couch, and then went to the grocery store to do the weekly shopping. It took 7 trips in the house to get everything in - the back seat and the trunk of the Jeep were SO full. Then, Jake & I went to Kjell Gerber & Paige Johnson's dinner they were having for family and friends the night before their wedding!
Jake was sooo tired, but so excited for Kjell
These flowers were the centerpieces - I LOVE Gerber Daisies!!
All of the water bottles had a pink label wrapped around them with green font that said "Paige & Kjell" - so cute!!
They had catered Cafe Rio - SO yummy!!
The next day, after making sure Jake was asleep, I ran a few MORE errands - I went to cash Jake's bonus check, go make ANOTHER payment on the Jeep (we are making SERIOUS progress!) and go to fill out some final paperwork at Bank of American Fork BECAUSE I GOT THE JOB!!! They called and officially offered the position the next day, but I knew Tuesday that I had got the job. I start on Monday (September 20th). I came home and cleaned up the house a little bit, then made home made Fajita's for dinner (and accidentally woke Jake up between the slap chop and the smell of sauteed onions and green peppers - oops). Then, we picked up our good friend Kyle and went to Kjell & Paige's reception!
Mr. & Mrs. Kjell Gerber!
Super cute sign in table - scrapbook pages with their engagements and bridals on them!
Their ADORABLE cake - I absolutely LOVE it!!
Kjell's grooms cake - it had coconut sprinkled on it for "powder" and a styrofoam of him snowboarding down the mountain!
The 3 high school buddies - Jake, Kjell & Kyle
All 3 buddies showing off their wedding bling!
The rest of the week was nowhere near as exciting - just more cleaning and running errands so that I can have as productive of a week as possible. We went and had the power steering on Jake's Mazda fixed (since its part of the recall) and are in the process of buying new tires for the Mazda as well (I HATE TIRE SHOPPING FYI). Hopefully we can finish up all the last minute errands today and that way BYU can slaughter Florida State tomorrow (not likely, but hey at least I will have a SUPER clean house and have had a way productive week!). Gotta love BYU superstitions...
