A Reorganized Bedroom

A week or so ago David had the grand idea to reorganize our bedroom. He's been talking about it for a while, but I always had dismissed the idea because of the two bookcases in our room. I DID NOT want to move the books, let alone our desk and bed and dresser...

But it's amazing how reorganizing our bedroom made me feel refreshed and organized. I love our new layout much better than our old one. For our third anniversary this year David wanted to get me a chair. Yes, a place to call my own. His name is Arnold. Arnold the armchair.

This next picture shows that while I made an effort to make our bedroom clean, I got bored and didn't want to put a few things away... that and I didn't shut our closet so now you can see how many freakin' clothes I have.

I love how this corner of the room feels separated and cozy. It's my own little book nook.

And I have to show off my new big pillows. I've been eyeing them for over a year now and finally ikea had them in stock when we went to look at chairs.

And here is a very messy room but it shows our old layout. Our bed was up against the window with our two nightstands on the side.

Julie, the beautiful

This post is dedicated to my beautiful sister-in-law, Julie. These pictures were taken at the temple.

The back of this dress is super duper pretty. 

I like my zoom function, thankyouverymuch. 

The awesome professional photographer. 

Can anyone deny that she takes the medal for most beautiful?

Reception prep

The pictures below is a testament of our business. But I can't deny it--I certainly had fun. I think a small (very small) part of me misses the harried feeling of school.

By the time I got to Eagar, most of the food was already made and frozen; all that was left to do was dip and frost. 

There were also doors that needed to be set up and painted. Brother Sherrow (sp?) was awesome and helped out. In the a few posts you'll see how they were utilized.

Kimberly and Melanie helped glue and cut out the labels I had made. We watched Sherlock and I got them hooked. :)

And the dipping begins. We utilized EVERYONE who had two arms. The first to be dipped was the rice krispy treats.

Next were the pretzels which were dipped in both milk and white chocolate.

And I was finally able to meet the famous Guthman's! They are even more cool than the Reece's said they were.

Outside proved perfect for the dipped goods to dry. 

David being David. Love him. 

Sean and Layne are bagging the dried cake pops.

However, the milk chocolate dipped items did not dry nearly as quickly as the white chocolate. I blame myself for adding to much shortening. A day later they were finally dry enough not to get on your hands...oops.

Sneak peek for tomorrow's post: The beautiful bride.

PS, that dress was couldn't be any more beautiful.
