Once again, I have failed at blogging. Life just gets so busy sometimes! I really have been meaning to update this thing but just have not gotten around to it.

Nothing terribly exciting has happened around here lately. Just the same old school, work, homework, and (unfortunately) watching really sad Utah football games. (Side note: it is not fun watching your football team lose pretty bad game after game. The Utes need to get their acts together pronto!). We have, however, done a couple fun projects lately.  

For one, Sam and his brother Jon put bead board up on the back of our kitchen counter so it looks much prettier now!

One thing I did a couple weeks ago was make a cute Halloween runner for our kitchen table! And the coolest thing about it? I sewed it all by myself!! For me this was a HUGE accomplishment. I literally had never really sewed anything my entire life. Very sad, I know. Luckily I have a mother-in-law who is great at sewing and she taught me how to do it! Well okay, she taught me the beginning steps. She was very patient while I made the runner (probably took me a million times longer than it would take her) and let me/made me do all the sewing myself. For those of you who know me know what a perfectionist I am. This does not help projects like these go fast AT ALL. But I persevered and finally did it!

Isn't it so cute?! I must say, I am pretty proud of this thing. Hopefully my first of many sewing projects. (I am determined to learn how to sew well).

I especially like it with my cute pumpkin candle holder :)

As a side note, I just have to tell about something cute Sam did for me last week. Mondays I get home late from class and Sam is kind enough to make us dinner those nights. So... last Monday night this is what I came home to:

The picture doesn't do it justice (camera is still dead) but he bought me flowers, had a candlelit dinner, had romantic music on, and made some delicious food! Isn't that SO cute?!?! Seriously I was so happy I could hardly contain myself. I know I am a little biased, but I think I have the best husband EVER!!!!!
