Nope, not pregnant

Please excuse the title, but for some reason I have had a lot of people as me if I was pregnant lately... and first off, am I really getting that much heavier? because I have been running almost everyday and working my tail end off to get back into shape, and second... when does making a blanket mean I am pregnant?
So the lady I visit teach is having a sweet little girl soon and I don't think she has gotten to know people in our ward so I decided to make her a baby blanket.

The whole process was sort of fun for me but mainly that is because I had time to myself to enjoy the fabric store. Plus I found the exact amount of fabric I needed in the leftover stack so the soft stuff was half off! This is huge... no joke especially for 20 dollar fabric.

Here is the finished project ...

I thought it was snuggly, I hope she does... plus it was an excuse to use my sewing machine which is always a plus for me... I like sewing.
Voila... all done.
BTW she loved it and so did her husband... he liked that one side was blue, and she liked the pink and said its the one pink thing she will have since her husband refuses to have pink anywhere in his house but he did say that this was an exception!
See so its not me who is pregnant but a friend ... gosh but seriously, if I have gained that much weight please kindly tell me... however I don't think I have!

Somebody is gettin married!

So a while back me and my mister went on a double date with Niel and Caitlin. On our fun outing with our cousin/friends we went and had a scavenger hunt at Cabela's, or as Kasey's dad refers to it, the Lehi temple.
Our scavenger list included crazy things such as an obscured colored gun

And even a Squirrel

WE went and looked at the mini aquarium filled with tons of fish that can be found in the lakes in Utah, and this one fish WOULD NOT stop following Caitlin around, it was so funny because it kept staring at her.

We also had a little bit of fun with one of the mannequins who obviously was supposed to be holding something... so my arm it was, that way it could look at my ring!

We had a BLAST with these two, but more importantly...
Niel is Kasey's cousin and we are so excited for him and his fiance Caitlin... it is official.
Kasey also made Chorizo? last week, and some sauce called Ahi...
He was super stoked and it was pretty cute. I was just glad that I was not the one cooking.
And yes... that is cilantro in his teeth.

Spring has Sprung

So life continues to get busier and we also continue to get busier.
We decided to spice out the outside of our humble abode, or our house, so for the past several weeks we have done a ton of yard work. Especially my man Kase.
So the last week that we had put tons of work into our yard, we made sure to get some supplies for a flower bed.

I love all of the flowers, I was so excited to plant them... but Kasey reminded me that there were things we had to do first before we could plant the flowers.
The list included digging up tons and tons of rocks... with trick nasty bugs underneath...
tilling and adding soil to the flower beds, picking weeds, picking weeds... and picking more weeds.
I think when Adam and Eve were cast out of the Garden of Eden, and God said that they would be working all the days of their life, I think he meant picking weeds. I just want weeds to disappear, they suck!
But besides the lawn and flower bed work, we have put some work into fixing the tree in our front yard.

Here is my goof, watering the lawn and grass seed!
I wish I had taken a picture of our pitiful tree but I may save that for a later date. It actually has the small pink flowers that look like mini roses. 
And the final product, it is not Jana's garden but it is literally WAY better than the before.

Such a "sweet" surprise

So I came home the other day and went through my normal sit on the couch and finally take a break routine, and Kasey came in from watering the lawn and goes... "I have a surprise for you". When he said this I was a little hesitant to be honest, and that is partially because of the poop eatin' grin he carried on his face. But he did surprise me with these yummy treats.

A total of 6 chocolate covered strawberries, and I ate every single one of them!
I will not like but I was in some sort of heaven...

Thanks Kase!
