new car

Due to a recent series of unfortunate events that includes my poor little run-down Taurus,
I was "forced"to be this lil guy.
I had been looking around for a new car for a while, but then the process was sped up when I got in a bit of a fender bender.
I wanted something rull fancy and posh but given the limited time and limited funds....
I bought this beauty.
And I love it.
Also, now when Derek and I decide to move to the PNW we will look like we actually fit in.
Well, this car has been working out pretty nice for me but new stuff always takes some getting used to.
I mean, all of the gadgets are in the wrong places.
I keep thinking I'm in my old car and I go to turn on the windshield wipers and the headlights turn on...
So the other day I was driving down the road minding my own business when some punk pulled in front of me.
I wanted to warn the dumb that I was going to hit him if he didn't go faster but I could NOT find my horn in that moment of panic.
I turned on the headlights and the windshield wipers and the rear windshield wipers and...
Five minutes later I finally honked at him.
Needless to say, he was clueless as to why some BEAUTIFUL brunette in a hawt car was honking at him.
I think I need to take some time to study my car gadgets.

Little by little I'm putting our little apartment together.
Definitely little by little.
Because my nightstand is still a cardboard box.
But we're newlyweds and we're supposed to be poor and have no furniture so it's OK.
In other news, it's our 1 month anniversary and we haven't gotten completely tired of each other yet.
I think that the biggest thing we have learned is to...let the other person sleep.
Nothing like somebody without a nap to dissipate the love at home.
But, back to the wall...
Ain't it cute?

throwback thursday

It's not Thursday but it is a throwback.
This is our honeymoon video that Vimeo finally allowed me to upload.
PSA: This isn't a vlog.
We're much cuter than vloggers.

another wedding

Since we're on the topic of marriage...
My friend is getting married tomorrow in the building of righteousness.
I took her engagement pictures for her earlier this season and never posted them.
So now that the big day has come, here they are!
I don't usually take pictures of the living so straying from the inanimate was a bit challenging.
But, I'm proud and haters gonna hate.

This is the only thing in the world that has my new name on it.
Not even Facebook has changed...
I figure since the government doesn't know me as this name, the world shouldn't.?
Anyways, I went to Zumba.
And holy poopsicle.
I felt like I was in an 80's workout video.
And now at this time I would just like to share my thoughts on Zumba.

Thoughts on Zumba:
"OK this is my first time here and I'm a bit lost but I think this is the room."
"Oh boy, everybody from the class before me looks super sweaty."
"Back left corner is mine. I dibs it!!"
"This classroom is made out of windows....everybody in the gym can see me!!"
"OK we're marching. This isn't too bad."
"This is hilarious."
"Oh the pace is picking up a bit."
"How am I tired already?"
"My shoe is 'untied'. I better take a five minute break to tie it."
"No! It's a latin song! I can't dance like this."
"Gah I got the foot work down and now there are arms??"
"That grandma is doing better than me."
"Uh oh. I just farted. Good thing I'm in the corner."
"Oh I missed a step...I'm gonna be behind the whole rest of the class."
"Another latin song?? I might as well leave now."
"Does she feel powerful, knowing that she's the only one in here who can do this?"
"I'm rull sweaty."
"Ten more minutes."
"I am not even doing this right. Maybe I'll just march."
"Ya know, I don't need to dance through my workout to enjoy it."
"OK class is officially over."
"Wait, why are they starting another song??"
"Nope. I'm not doing this. I'm outta here. I paid my dues."

wood polish

Recently I made some hip baby teething rings out of wood and they needed to be polished up a bit.
So I made this natural wood polish to use instead of those toxin-laden chemicals that you buy at the store.
Which are probably of the devil.
Or the government.
Anyways, it smells delicious and hopefully tastes just as good in wee lil babe's mouth.
It was super simple to make but since I'm not about that tutorial life here is where I found the directions:

We went on our honeymoon a little late,
But we are still in the honeymoon stage so it doesn't even matter.
On Thursday we went up to Park City to spend a couple of nights away from our jobs and responsibilities.
It was a bit dreary and gloomy the whole time but it was beautiful!!
And made sitting in our private hot tub during a storm even more enjoyable.
So anyways, sights were seen and cookies were eaten and here are the pictures.
And keep your pants on while you wait for the video!
