500 cupcakes

This post is a little late, how usual of me...

My sister in law, Hilary, got married a few weeks ago! It was a beautiful reception and I am so happy for her and Mead.

I didn't get very many good pictures, but here are some from the night...

Oh, and my sister in law, Cari, and I helped contribute to the centerpieces...

500 cupcakes. chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.  The baking was {cake}.  It was the frosting that took the longest to make.  Good thing we had two mixers handy.  We were happy to help and we had fun frosting, decorating and harassing Neal in the process :)

I am in the works of reupholstering a chair out of this lovely fabric...

It's very similar to:

Love the soft pale blue, and this couch.

I can't get enough of these - In every room of my house...

This is exactly the type of couch I have envisioned for my living room with the similar floral print pillows in the bottom picture...someday, dreamingly...

I love everything about this room minus the dream catcher....isn't Rachel Ashwell AMAZINGGG!? I am in love with everything she does.

I guess better late than never...

February, we celebrated Becca's birthday. She made a special trip from Utah so we could take her to dinner. It was a fun night and we were really happy to be able to celebrate her birthday with her.

Also, Kev and I took a little trip to Sedona a few weeks ago to celebrate our two year anniversary. It is beyond gorgeous! It is one of the best places to go for awesome views, and just to get away and relax. We were expecting it to be a little warmer, but we went during a chilly weekend. It was nice the first day and we were able to go out to the shops, play tennis, and go swimming, but the next day it hailed! It was still a really relaxing and fun little trip. On our way home, we found a few antique shops, and in Camp Verde they have the best antique store (Sweet Pea Antiques) I have ever been to. They had so many things I loved. I really would not mind making the drive just to go back.

Both of us have never really cared too much for this holiday, but we decided to go out to dinner anyways.  So, Kevin LOVES pizza.  His favorite place has always been Nello's...until now.  I have been trying to get him to try the pizza from BJ's for awhile now.  All of my friends know that its dang good.  Now, Kev is in LOVE...just in time for V-Day :)

No, not snowboarding, but sledding...haha. We were going to go snowboarding, but didn't have time in the weekend to head up to Brian Head (due to our heater breaking on the way up to Utah and kev having to spend 8 hours fixing it). 

But it was still a lot of fun. We just hung out in St. George and got to do a few fun things.

So I just trying to take a picture of the view with Kev in the picture, but...

I didn't realize he was trying to cool down and doing this in the pic til afterwards. Seriously, this boy gets so hot all the time, even in the snow!

One of the nights, we met up with Ward and Randi, Kev's brother and sister-in-law. We went to the St. George Temple, got some ice cream, and then we went up to the Dixie hill to see the view of the city.

We also ate at The Pizza Factory while we were there.  So dang yummy!

It was a relaxing and fun weekend! We'll have to give Brian Head another shot sometime!
