And I've never loved my house more than I do right now! It's seriously SO CUTE! So, here are some pictures!
We have a blue garbage can, thanks to Cody and some spray paint. Best idea ever! And it's Cody's favorite thing in the house, literally. He says something about every time he throws something away or we go to other people's houses, he just has to make sure they know about it (:

New script art! And the garbage can matches it and our EAT sign!

Close up of the script art.. I love the colors and the message!
Moved the Proclamation to the World under the clock
I printed this "letter" out because it was so funny! And quite perfect for the kitchen!

Moved things around a bit, so the piano is now on the right! And once again, I love how open it looks now!

We have pictures behind our front door now!

"Choose your love, love your choice" above the mirror

We had to move the picture frames because this plant was covering them all, but I love it like this!

We put the Brunson sign above our book cabinet, along with some cool wall design/candle holder things I got from bunco a while ago! Along with a few candles and my little baby plant! Not sure about that set up, but can't think of anything else to put on top of the book cabinet.. So that might change in the future! So now the pump organ holds our picture books!
 Also, did you notice that the couch that used to be in front of the organ is gone?!?! Well, almost, it's in the middle of the room waiting to be picked up. I love how open our front room looks now!

I painted the words to Brad Paisley's - Then onto some cardboard. It's mine and Cody's song, also the one we danced to at our wedding. It's not perfect, or at all what I wanted it to look like, but not everything you create has to be perfect, right? And it's just a cute reminder of our relationship, since every single part of that song relates to how it went with us (:

Loved this saying, and it's on my craft desk for when I'm not feeling too crafty.. Let you're awesomeness free! (:

New additions to our bedroom!

Love this quote so much! 

So simple, but so cute

And we have a picture of us in our room! Finally!
Cody's night stand

As always, it looks so much better in person, so come on by, why dontcha! (:


This post has a ton of pictures, because duh.. we went to France!

I told Cody about it a couple days before so he could get ready for our "flight" to France, and he was so excited!!

 Once he realized that I didn't have a passport too, he decided that I needed to be added to his (:


We started the morning off with Kool Aid (which I know they drink instead of wine in France..) and Crepes with berries!

I'm just about a professional crepe maker (:

Our money to pay for breakfast! So yummy!

After breakfast, we decided to go to the Timpanogos Temple and do sealings on our 6 month anniversary... how appropriate! There were 4 brides out taking pictures when we got there, taking up every entrance to get into the temple, so we had to wait a few minutes just to get inside!

Then we went to Walmart and Cody was going to get me flowers, but I decided I didn't want them because they die too fast.. so we got plants instead! They're kind of a double whammy because the are my birthday present too! Pictures later in the post!

When we came home, it was cocktail hour! Grapes, berries, lemon bars, french bread, cheese and crackers (by the way, Laughing Cow cheese, the creamy swiss kind, is INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS! I had no idea!) I was going to get sparkling cider for this event, then remembered that I hate sparkling cider, so with a coupon from Target, I bought a 2 liter bottle of Voltage Mountain Dew! SO glad I did!

 Then began our tour of France! I researched all sorts of facts about France and acted as the tour guide, complete with pictures around our house!

Experiencing a hot air balloon event!

Haha the sun was in his eyes (;

 After the tour, we sat down with our language expert friend (Google Translate) and learned some romantic French phrases!

And here are the plants! I'm seriously so in love with them! I've never had plants before, and I'm so excited to see if I can keep them alive! I really started wanting one after my friend Taylor got one for her house and said it cleans the air.. Now I have 3 buddies in my house that are dedicated to cleaning our air and looking quite beautiful!

These plants also inspired me to re-decorate a little bit, so a post will be coming soon of the updated house decorations! All in all, our day was amazing! Everything went so perfectly, Cody loved it, and it was definitely fun to do something different!
