Wreath Making

I caught my crafting bug again, this time I decided to make a fall wreath. It's super easy, here is how:

1. Bend a wire coat hanger into a circle.
2. Buy floral leaves (fall colors or whatever you want), cut the leaves into smaller stems.
3. Place the leaves on the hanger and secure with floral tape or a brown string.
4. Continue securing more leaves on the hanger in the same direction.
5. Repeat until it's at your desired thickness.
6. Shazam, your done :)

Our 1st Anniversary

I can't believe it's already been a whole year since we got hitched! It's gone by oh so fast, but not at the same time.

Today we celebrated in style, visiting the SLC Temple where we were married and Memory Grove where our reception was. It was fun going back and walking down memory lane. We ended off the night with a nice dinner out. As you notice we took a picture holding up the 'number 1'. I decided that every anniversary we are going to hold up the number of years and put it in our 'anniversary album'. Then lets say, when we're 50, 60, 70.... we can look back and see all of the years that we've celebrated and how very old we have gotten ;)

With that said-marriage has been an amazing experience. Of course it has its tough times of adjustment but it is very rewarding. I definitely married my best friend and made the best decision of my life on this very day last year. One year down, a bazillion to come :)

This weekend some of the Sharps planned a camp trip up in Logan because some of the guys wanted to hunt for Grouse. My parents were also in Florida during that weekend, Josh & I were watching Bree for the weekend and so we took her along. It was A LOT colder that I expected, got below freezing in the night. Luckily, we got to sleep in this big tent with a stove so it kept us nice and warm. While we were there we spent a lot of time around the campfire, Josh showed us how to shoot some guns, and we went on a hike and looked at the beautiful landscape-you can see for forever out there!!

Labor Day Weekend

Who doesn't love a 3 day weekend? I know that I certainly have enjoyed it and the day off. Josh and I didn't go out of town so we decided to keep busy and plan some fun stuff.

Josh's old mission companion, Elder Pak, and his wife met up with us on Saturday. We went on a hike up behind our place in Pleasant Grove and then got some Korean food. I have to say, the more i'm exposed to Korean food the more I like it! Later that day Josh's mission president gave us some extra tickets to the BYU game, we were stoked! Although i'm definitely not a BYU fan i've been wanting to get to a game, as has Josh, so we were more than happy to accept them. On top of that his old mission pres is a season ticket holder so we got free passes to this VIP tent before the game, got free food and treated very well before and during the game-our day couldn't have turned out better!
Then today, Monday, we went to Hogel Zoo! It was way fun and the weather was perfect. I hadn't been to the zoo in years so it was good to go back. However, I sorta felt out of place being there without dragging 2 or more kids around in a stroller! ha, it was super busy but a good way to end our weekend holiday.
