Emily's 20th Birthday!! And some good news :)

Emily's 20th birthday was on Monday!  A bunch of her friends went to Texas Road House for dinner and it was so fun!! 

 I decided I wanted to try and make a cake from the cute cake recipie book my aunt Jennifer gave me for my bridal shower.

Needless to say, it took me longer than I anticipated.  It turned out pretty cute (not exactly as I had planned), but it was fun!
Brady and I went to the BYU Cougarboard tailgate party last Saturday followed by the game.  That was a huge disappointment.  Especially since Brady is their biggest fan this season!  It was still fun though :)

Brady has been trying to find a job since we've been back, and let me tell's hard!  Everybody is looking for a job!!  I am lucky I got to keep my job at UVU with the developmental math department.  So Brady has applied everywhere.  He finally got a job one day a week at Blockbuster, but when he went to fill out his "New Hire" papers, they told him they were putting a hold on hiring people.  We were pretty sad.  Then I found this job on the UVU Job board for an on campus job at the testing center.  He applied and got a call for an interview the next day.  I had to go to the testing center for work and over the years, I've become good friends with the people who work there.  I told them Brady had an interview there and they told me 60 people applied for the job and only 8 got an interview!  I was freaking out.  Brady's interview went great!!  That night we went to the temple and I just felt like everything would be okay.  In the end, Brady got a call today saying he got the job!!!  It's so perfect!  It's great hours and when there is no school, there is no work.  Which is how it is for me too!  I am just so grateful.  Brady and I have been blessed once again!

Best Post YET!!!

OKAY!  So I know I don't have a ton to update on, but I do have a lot of pictures to put up!   Some of these are way over due, but the last month has been pretty chaotic.  

First.  When I was in Texas, I was dying to get my hair done.  But I didn't have my wonderful Jenny to do it for me!  I was also trying to save money, so I went to WalMart.  That's right.  I bought a box!  GASP! When I went to BYU Hawaii, I highlighted my own hair with a box and it turned out amazing!!  

While at WalMart, I met an older woman who was looking at hair color boxes too.  We started talking and she became my reason for completely doing this to my hair.  Brady was coming in town that night to visit for the day and I wanted to look extra cute!

This is my before shot....don't judge.  Seriously.  It's also very dirty.

As you can see...this is nothing a little baby powder could cover.  I needed something SERIOUS!

So after the box dye, my roots were slightly orange.  I cried, but got over it 10 minutes later.  My mom (who hadn't even seen it) convinced me on the phone that it was probably better than my roots.  TRUE.  

This is the after shot.

What are your thoughts?  I'm only wearing that red shirt because I didn't want to get dye on my cute tie dye shirt. HAHA

Ok next on the list of updates.  My last day at SeaWorld was bitter sweet.  I was so excited to get back to Utah to be with my sister, cousins, friends and Brady, but it was a little sad.

I was able to go meet a couple of the Beluga Whales!  I got to do some of the tricks the trainers get to do.  It was so fun!  I officially love these animals.  They really have a mind of their own.

When I got home from Texas I went to DI in search for some bedroom furniture.  You know what?  I love good deals and I love crafts.  That's why I love DI...sometimes.  But this time, it was great!!!  I found a nightstand for $5 and a tall dresser for $8.  Yeah...$13 all together.  Saweet.  My sister emily helped me redo them.  Here are the before and after pics.  I haven't put hardware on them yet, but you can get the idea.

So as you all know, I said yes to my apartment before I even saw it.  I had Amanda go look at it for me and she said yes, so I said YES!  Lauren came with me for the first time to see it and I was insta-in-love.  Cutest neighborhood.  Kids everywhere.  Safe.  And our landlords were out in their garden...precious.  Anyway, our apartment is the bomb.

This is Brady and all of our crap everywhere.  As you can tell by his face, moving is not fun haha.

The first night Brady got home we slept on an air mattress.  Hi--it was like deflated by the time we woke up in the morning.  So that day we went and bought a bed.  This is not our's some suede one that Brady has had his whole life and he thinks it's the coolest.  I am not really a fan.  Don't judge.

A couple days ago my grandma's husband was so nice to drive up all of our wedding gifts and some of our furniture.  We FINALLY have gotten everything moved in!!!  There are still some finishing touches, but it feels so good to be in a clean home without any boxes.  Here are some pictures!!

I love our couches!!  We got a great deal for with the Labor Day sale!! :)
We bought our tv on KSL and got a great deal.  Brady loves that he can watch football now!
I still need a lamp shade for the bedside lamp and a few more pillows :)

(Our real bedding...I LOVE IT!)

The bathroom...

This is by far the most intense post I have ever done.  Let me know if you enjoyed it!!  Hope everyone is having a great Saturday and a great 3 day weekend!

Update with the Fishes!

So I really need to put up some pictures of our new apartment!!! I feel like I have been moving non stop for 3 weeks. I love our apartment! It is huge and so perfect for me and Brady. We bought our first bed last saturday (king size baby!) and we are loving it!! Our mattress in Texas was horrible and the first night Brady got back to Utah we slept on an air mattress. So pretty much we are in heaven with our new bed.

We are going to buy our couches today and then we are pretty much finished with furniture, but we do need a tv. Does anybody have a tv or know anyone with a tv that they don't use or are selling? We are poor haha

Well I will put some pics up later. The internet is not very good in our basement :)
