Brooke HOgan.

"You know what? I am actually not that much into voting. I think it’s kinda crazy that a woman is running, because I think that women deal with a lot of emotions and menopause and PMS and stuff. Like, I’m so moody all the time, I know I couldn’t be able to run a country, ‘cause I’d be crying one day and yelling at people the next day, ya know?"

Project Runway Episode #1

I finally got around to watching the newest season of Project Runway's premiere episode and it definitely was not a disappointment! Its probably my favorite show on television! I have a tendency to pick favorites right off the bat, pretty much based on looks and the first few clips of their portfolio they show. Last year my favorites were Sweet Pea, Christian and Kat. This year I think my favorites are Kelli, Leanne and Emily.

None of the guys grabbed my attention at all. I thought the blue plastic cup dress, while yes, sure it was innovative due to being made out of plastic cups.. was a little over rated by the judges. It really wasn't an exceptional looking dress. Had it been made out of blue fabric it would have been considered boring and ill fitting I think. I was excited to see what Keith would come up with.. because he's the first person representin' from the SLC on the show, but his dress totally fell short too.. so many people used table cloths but at least the girls were smart enough to use solid colored ones so it at least looked like fabric and not a checkered tablecloth.. then all of the fishnet he added.. egh, i just didn't get it and the fact that he called it the most "sexy" dress out of them all was kind of funny. There is nothing sexy about a checkered tablecloth. Sorry!

My favorite ended up being the winner! Kelli made a rad dress out of vacuum cleaner bags. Everything about her dress was creative and innovative and she was one of the few designers that made me curious about her future creations. Kelli is seriously amazing, I have been following her work for over 5 years.. we were both in the LBG group, It was a small group of designers that mostly sold on ebay and she is definitely an inspiration.. She started out selling her stuff on ebay and now look at her! It kind of makes me feel like I can do it too...

Winner: Kelli
Sent Home: Jerry

did they get it right?

Giving Birth.

Sewing is weird. Everything is so ugly on the inside but the outside is pretty and looks effortless.

My favorite part is when you turn the ugliness inside out and it's almost like it gives birth to this cute thing thats been growing on the inside.

Pretty Cups.

I found four of these beauties on my last thrift store excursion. They are amber tinted with the perfect shade of orange flowers all over. When I saw them I instantly fell in love and they are getting my kitchen 4 glasses closer to being completely vintage.

4th of July

For not really caring about this particular holiday I actually had a pretty enjoyable 4th of July weekend and its not even completely over yet. I would have liked to spend the holiday with my whole family.. but even though that didn't pan out, the portion of my family that I did get to see made it all better.

Chris and I went down to my dad's house. He made really delicious food in a dutch oven and gave Chris a lengthy lesson on dutch ovens which in turn has sparked an interest in Chris and he thinks we should get one and cook our meals during the summer with it. I like stoves - they are fast and don't involve burning oil onto big heavy pot things.

I spent most of my time just taking pictures of the cute kids running around. It came time to do fireworks and the whole neighborhood is going to hell for lighting off so many illegal fireworks! Very funny that a whole neighborhood of mormons were enjoying breaking the law.. while drinking caffeine-free soda!

If you want to see more of the pictures just check out my flickr.. Im leaving to go spend the evening with my favorite girls in the world.

Aww.. <3

Today has been a little crappy. I feel kinda down and frustrated with a lot of things. Im trying to shake it off.

Watching this video helped.

I pretty much can't watch it and not smile. :)

Garden Update!

Our garden is doing soooo good, for the most part. If I had known what I know now.. I would have done a few things differently but for being the first garden I've ever grown I'm pretty pleased! The empty spot is where we planted cantelopes and watermelon but they both died for some reason. I had no idea that squash and zucchini plants grew as big as they did so they are all squeezed in with each other and are getting bigger by the day! They have almost overgrown my pumpkin and my onions are hidden within the zucchini leaves.

We still have to find some tomato posts, Chris tried to go to Lowes and get some but the lady there pretty much acted like he was retarded for not already having them and they were sold out. We have to find some soon though because I think our tomatoes are getting to the point that they really need them. I hope our corn produces something, I've heard from a few people that corn dosn't do well unless there is a ton of it. The corn plants are growing tall and look great but I guess we will have to wait and see!
