Two Tu-Tu's

After the wedding, I went home to spend the weekend with my parents, babies, and family. My brother Jason and his wife Jen were in Hawaii so my mom was watching their three babies (so I HAD to go home).

During the course of the weekend, my sister Sydney and I made Addison and Isabelle a couple of tu-tus. They were the cutest things you'd ever seen!

Neither of us had made them before so we underestimated the amount of tulle me needed but after a quick trip to Walmart (where it was "mush sheeper") we were able to finish.

It was the easiest project I've ever done and by far the cutest!

Mrs. And Mrs. Herget

Last Thursday, one of my best friends Kellie got married. She married Lindsay Herget in the Salt Lake Temple. The day was perfect it was a little chilly but gorgeous. She looked amazing - he was glowing - and now they're married!
She's the second of our group to get married and it was so fun for all of us to be there (minus 1). Diana was even able to fly back from DC for the occasion.

Their reception was at Heritage Gardens in Sandy. It was gorgeous. They had yummy food and a snickerdoodle cake that was amazing!

Congrats Kell and Linds! We love you!

Jumping Pictures!!
Even McKell got some good air and she's super prego. At the reception someone commented, "I was so afraid the baby was going to pop out!" to which she replied, "I'm glad it didn't because that would have been really gory." It was kind of funny.

Kim, Me, and Di. Di caught the bouquet so maybe she's next...I believe in bouquet magic.

After they left it took them another 20 minutes to get in their car, be able to see, and remove the inflated "balloons" from all over.

Her photographer was Mikki, an old friend from St. George (who is an most amazing photographer as well). Check out her blog soon for pictures of the big day!

Why Mormon Girls Stay Single

My friend Erica blogged about this blog and I had to re-blog it (whoa...what a mouthful).

It's a blog about single mormon girls and it's hilarious! Not to mention TRUE!

Whether you're single, married, a boy, a girl, mormon, or not you'll like it.

That's Not My Name

So my favorite song right now is the Ting Tings 'That's Not My Name'. Mostly because it makes me dance but also because it was totally written for me.

My name is CH-ana. A little different but NOT difficult. Maybe because its been my name for 20+ years I don't think its weird at all or hard to pronounce.

So then riddle me this: Why can't people get it?

I have been working at my job for a year and a half. I work as a Marketing Rep and am fairly involved in company schtuff and know almost everyone's name which isn't hard because there are only about 50 of us. But there are still many people who call me the WRONG name.

I used to correct them and other coworkers used to correct them but after a year it seems a bit excessive to have to correct them each and every time.

Shanna, Chauna, Chaina, or Shaina...That's Not My Name!

5 Loves

I was tagged by one of my oldest friends Lindsey and since I have been a bit out of the world as of late I thought I'd participate!

So here it goes:

My 5 loves:
1. I love Freddie pants. He's a nerd...I'm a totally works.
2. Family: I have the best family and also married into the best family. I wish the Wald's lived closer so we could see them all as much as we get to see mine. We have so much fun with both families, I'm really lucky. With Family is friends because often times our friends have quickly become our families.
3. Boot Camp. I know...who loves boot camp but I seriously do. I'm super sweaty and gross at the end but that means I've worked by butt off (if only it would literally fall off). I love to hate Shelley, my boot camp instructor.
4. Weekends: They are NEVER long enough. I long for Fridays and dread Mondays. I love doing anything on the weekends from nothing to crazy busy. It's nice to have a couple of days to just hang out with my husband, friends, and the cleaning supplies.
5. Event Planning: I love coordinating events, parties, dinners, etc. I love love it. Someday this will be what I do for a the meantime let me know if you want me to plan something for you!

I tag...Emily, Amy, Davian, Mandy, and Stank
