Here, there, everywhere

Sitting on the couch at 2 am watching Doug while my husband sits on my couch keeping my feet warm and illustrating a childrens book.... I was looking through my photos on my phone and they may mediocre at best but alas here they are anyway photo

Photo1 taken sun it's Kate Thomas letting me brush up on my "updoe" speed slash ability

Photo 2 & 3 were taken today in American Falls, Idaho. we decided to drive there on my day off today... Boring to most but for bryndon and I? Perfect. We totally enjoy a drive with scenery we have never taken time to appreciate and tiny homes with unique architecture and vintage signage everywhere. A splendid day off.

Photo 4 is what I am looking at RIGHT now/

Photo 5 & 6 & 7 the cupcakes were the gift I put together for everyone that helped with the wedding. Photo 6 & 7 was the drive taking them around to said Helpers of wedding. So here's a little rant - I was surprised and disappointed at the lack of friends that stepped up to help with my wedding after I have bent over backwards helping So many of my close friends putting on practically their entire weddings. So to those who did step up wanting to help make my day special I wanted to show them how much I appreciated them. Katelyn Thomas did soo much to help along with my aunt Kathy and a few of my moms good friends.

Photo 8 was a fabulous sign from our drive today

Photo 9 & 10 babysitting my sisters kids for a few days... so naturally Halloween ghosts and tennis were in order... Coley being coley found it appropriate to weAr a leotard skirt combo since she didn't own a tennis dress. You can't help but love it. I know.

Photo 11 is from our drive today. If you can't tell what it is I will help you.. ...Spooky.. Thats what.

That's the end to my sharing and ranting for the day. P. S. I have 50 French vocal words under my belt thanks to a fab phone app and working on the next 50.

I'm aware...

I'm aware that no one actually reads my blog and I dont care. I like reading other peoples musings and like to think that maybe someone out there likes to read mine.

Tonight I made potato chowder from scratch and it was very tasty if I do say so myself. First time to make soup from scratch and it was so darn tootin easy. Let me set the scene sitting on my green couch watching exporting Raymond eating homemade chowder, the fire was a blaZing and my honey was next to pumpkin spice candle was burning behind me. Quite perfect.

P.s. Bryndon bought a project motor cycle this Maybe it will be up and running by spring.

Gooood night.

Something Borrowed, Something red?

To start off this post, i have to give fair warning... it is filled with photos. I received my wedding photos from Shuttergirl yesterday and wanted to share them with everyone. Photo credit also to Bryttan Kramer for the photos of the luncheon. They both did a FFFFabulous job. Lets start at the Very beginning.....

     The Lobby. Photos of our grandparents and parents.

Backdrop. Designed my my mom and I. Made by my mom and dad. I love the huge hinges.

                       Bryndon looking handsome as ever. In the grooms room waiting for the ceremony.

In the brides room getting ready.

I Designed my dress, Bryndon sketched it out, and my aunt Kathy made it for me. She is incredibly talented.
My Aunt Kathy the dress making extrordinare is on the right.

Coley girl in her Flower girl attire. In the beginning they were a plain pink dress with a white satin belt. My mom made the adorable belts out of the same fabric we made the backdrop for the ceremony. I changed out the bad ribbon on the hats for a seafoam grosgrain ribbon as well as the baskets, added all the buttons on the gloves, bascket and dresss to match the buttons down mine. oh... and made about a billion little roses. didnt love making them but looove the way they looked on the little dresses.

Just before the flower girls walked down the aisle. This is My dad and my niece Coley exchanging stalk market tips... im sure of it.

The flower girls  and I about to walk down the aisle
Bryndon and Taiger... talking guy stuff.

In order
The Groom

Bryndons parents 

My younger brother Clark walking my mom down the aisle

The Best man Taiger OR as we call him, the BEST best man (Bryndons nephew) and Alicia Olsen.. my "other" sister and bridesmaid.

Natalie adams the maid of horor and my sister and her son eric... a handsome groomsman.

Jeffrey My nephew and ringbearer
Coley girl.
Emily Rose

My dad and I.
Eric was bored pretty fast and decided it appropriate to take a sit down during the ceremony. Taiger boy on the right side  had the ring in his vest and decided to play a little trick on Bryndon when we exchanged rings... Bryndon asked for the ring and Taiger handed him the empty box... with a straight face. when Bryndon noticed there was no ring... Taiger started laughing and reached in his pocket to pull out the ring. he pulled the joke off like a champ.

You may now Kiss the bride

The bridal party


                                                                          The Everetts
