Hot Pink Candy Buffet

Just a few weeks ago I had a bridal shower for my friend from school, Melyssa. I wanted to do a fun candy buffet where the guests could fill up treat bags with all kinds of pink, white, and black candy. It turned out so cute and I promised some friends I would post pics. I am also loving my new vinyl lettering that I am doing! Let me know if you want something made. Im not really doing a business but I do special orders for friends and family of course!

Team Ugly Retreat 2009

This past weekend my girlfriends came down to Arizona to have a team ugly reunion! We were nicknamed Team Ugly by two of our boyfriends in high school (I don't know why they called us that but it has stuch since then). We had tons of fun. We started out tubing down the Salt River, saw the movie "The Proposal", went swimming, went shopping at Scottsdale Fashion Square, ate some good pizza and pizookie at Oreganos in old town Scottsdale and laughed our pants off. I was exhausted today when my girls went home but I had so much fun and I hope we continue doing this yearly. Love ya girls!

Thrifty Craft Project

So in Arizona we have a boutique that sells the cutest things however it is a little spendy. Most the time when I go into Orange Patch I see things I like and I tell myself, "Oh I could make that for a fraction of the cost." But most the time I never get around to making the things. Well this time I did! My sister and cousin got these cute calendars from the store but I told myself I wouldnt pay $170 for the thing. So.... I made one for ALOT cheaper! In total my magnetic, wipe off calendar cost me $22. Awesome huh? Plus, its so cute!!

The $170 magnetic board from Ala Board which is sold at Orange Patch

The $22 magnetic board made by Ashlyn :)

Why I Love My Man

Three years ago on June 15, 2006 I married my best friend. It was what I thought at that time the best day of my life. However now that it is 3 years since then I have realized that everyday is the best day of my life cause I have my Jon Boy! I have made a list of the 10 things I LOVE about my man.... Enjoy!

1. The natural hard worker he is
2. The way he loves kids - He will make the best Dad someday!
3. His goofy personality
4. The way he calls me Frank (I don't know how he thought of that nickname)
5. His Determination
6. The love that he has for the Gospel and being a strong Priesthood holder in our home.
7. How he can eat 10 packages of oreos and still remain skinny (I envy him for that)
8. His hot butt (Its my favorite physical characteristic of his-I first noticed how Hot it looked in his "good" jeans)
9. His cowboy self
10. Last but not least I just love Jon. Everything about him is amazing and I am so happy to have spent the last 3 years f my life with him... I know the best is yet to come!

Love ya baby!
