Sneak Peek

Here is a little preview about what you can all see on my headband blog, in a few days or so. My beautiful friend Brit was willing to be my model (and often my muse) and her husband Michael took all the pictures. These are small, but eventually the blog will be full of tons of pictures showing what I can do.
I'm really excited that I'm finally getting this project from just a hobby to something that will hopefully become much more than that. I'm working on getting them on etsy, but I'd love to get some opinions and such once I get them all up. So enjoy Brit's beautiful face and hopefully my beautiful headband! (and all the headbands that are to come!)
Merci beaucoup!

Birthdayness. A word invented by the Smart's I'm sure.

Birthdayness. A word put into action by my husband.

Have you ever seen anything so

Wicker basket, leather handles and seat, pale yellow pant with orange accents, and...wait for it...cute little bell. It truly is... "Glory
and Manifestation in all it's essence."
I told Nick I might have to make room for my new cruiser in our bed because I love it so

Cheesecake factory, Nordstrom cafe, California Pizza Kitchen, Cold Stone ice cream cake, homemade lemon supreme cake and HOLY COW TIGHTER PANTS.
Don't worry I'm just stretching my stomach out for Thanksgiving.

Nick wants me to mention that, "Sports do not change with the season like clothes do." Such a wise man I married. Plenty of people ride beach cruisers in Utah during the winter months and guess what? ... I will be one of them!

Shout out to my hubby for making 22 the best birthday of my life! Who knew getting older could be so much fun!

Love Child

Let me just say, that I might be the biggest nerd on the planet. When Nick works at night, instead of doing my homework, (like a real nerd) I morph pictures of Nick and myself on the internet to see what our future children might look like.
Most of them look like aliens, Yoda or Gollum, so I'd thought I'd share a picture of our future love child.

I've always hoped my children would look like Samantha the American girl doll. She was my favorite.

Our first Halloween as a married couple was definitely a success. We started the weekend off with carving pumpkins and baking tasty treats. As you can see, Mr. Jordan was hard at work on our pumpkin with his "tools." He refused to believe that actual pumpkin carving tools would be better than his axe, buck knife, and a pocket knife. What a man.

Our pumpkin, Pierre complete with beret.

I tried to fulfill my wifely duties of domestication by baking treats for us. Mom sent me some really cute Crate and Barrel cupcake decorating supplies and I found a great recipe for a "Boo Cake," from Martha Stewart. The cake didn't taste that great, but overall, I think it turned out pretty well.

Here we are looking very French. It is easy to say that the best addition to our costumes was Nick's faithfully grown out mustache. Touche!

This is just a side note, but if you have never read the Pioneer Woman blog - DO IT. It might change your life. She is hilarious and among other things, she writes down some pretty great recipes on her blog. One I found was a way to spice up Rhode's Rolls. A Sunday favorite for probably every Mormon person in existence since they were created I'm sure. Anyway, Pioneer woman blogged about brushing the rolls with butter and rosemary and baking them to spice things up. I tried it today and it was delicious! Definitely not health conscious, but since Halloween is a holiday, I figured we can eat what we want! Obviously, my rolls will not compare to what the Jordans will experience in about 3 weeks when we get to go HOME for Thanksgiving and experience La Table de Shelly! Delicieuse!
