An EXTREMEly awesome week!

So, like I mentioned before, the school that Trevor works at got picked to be on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and have their preschool re-done. It was an amazing, busy, and tiring week. Trev and I got to go help some....although the real props goes to my dad in law and sis in law...they worked their booties off! The finished product is AMAZING!!!! I got a "sneak peak tour" of the (almost) finished new preschool and there are no words to describe how awesome it is! There are toys galore, state of the art technology, play stations and SOOOOOO much more. Unfortunately, there was no picture taking allowed so everyone will have to tune in on November 7th 2010 to see the episode air! As part of the process, Trev and I got to go to the grand ole opry last night and Carrie Underwood was the surprise guest.....she was so good to see in person--she is very down to earth and sounds just as good live as she does on her CD. It was lots of fun and I was so thankful to go! What a great week!!!! Here are some pics from the week....

I am such a bad blogger...Life lately

So I realize it has almost been 2 months since I have blogged. I guess all that blogging in July overwhelmed me so I needed a break :) Really, the truth is Trev and I have been extremely busy the last two months. Trev started back to school teaching and I started back to school as a student. I am finishing up my MSN program so I can be a nurse practitioner....scary right?!?! Anyways, all that school has left me with pretty much zero time! Anyways, to all you thousands of people who read my blog (ha ha) I am sorry for being such an inconsistent blogger lately....Ill try to do better! :)

When I have had spare time lately I have been working on my newest hobby of sewing. My awesome mom gave me a sewing/monogramming machine and it has become somewhat of an obsession/desire to learn how to make things. So far I have made several burp cloths, a baby blanket, and a nursing cover (aka "hootie hider). Most of these things were for my friend Brittany who is having a baby in November. My next project is a dress :) I am kind of a "trial and error" sewer rather than going by the books, so my projects often have some unique imperfections...but I am learning as I go. I hope that one day I can make my own kids some cool clothes! Here are some pics of the projects...

Hootie hider...for feeding your baby inconspicuously :)

Another exciting thing in our life is that Trevor's school...LCS got chosen to be the recipient of Extreme Makeover Home Edition! It was a really exciting time, and it is such a blessing. They have been building since Friday and will do the big reveal this coming Friday....Cant wait to hear them say MOVE THAT BUS!!!!

Lastly, we got to be a part of some of our dear friends, Aunna and Terry's wedding today. It was a beautiful day for a wedding, and we had fun sharing it with them!

Well thats about it for now...I will try not to let it be 2 months before I blog again. We got a new camera so maybe I will be taking more pics! :)
