Oram family, Jessica (Chad's New Wifey). We all went up after Christmas to get ready for their wedding. I did her bridals and their wedding pictures, and I don't think I have ever been so cold in my entire life. Since then it has been non-stop mayhem trying to get them off my camera and onto a computer and a disk. I still can't get these on a disk to take home with me (we are at my parents), and so I thought I would let out all of my frustrations with a blog vent!! I had to go to Walgreens to finally get them all on a disk, but it took several tries before hand and lots of wasted hours!! Then what did load on my mom's computer, I played with now, but now it still won't go onto a disk and I really don't want to redo all 98 pictures!!! AHHHHH!!! So....now I will probably have to go spend more money to get a jump drive to get them all off. Why is it that the photo sessions I do for free always take me the most amount of work and stress!! I always feel like they won't be good enough for the family/friends I am doing them for so I take way more time on editing, I can't get what I want because its hard to be forceful with family (who is more comfortable disagreeing with family) and there always seems to be a hang up!! Besides all the wasted time on these, I just looked through them and all of Eric's side of the families pictures at the temple their heads are cut off! Stupid me, I should have figured out my remote instead of having someone else push the button-the blasted camera got moved and it totally screwed up the pictures. So...needless to say weddings totally freak me out (and I think this could be my one and only), there's no way to redo them, and now forever I get to be guilty about my bro/sis-in-laws wedding pictures and all the flaws!! I guess I will be done venting now....if only I could get this computer to work.......
More on the holidays later, and the start of basketball, and the actual wedding, and pictures of Adelina my cute niece (sorry Kristina), and finally Clari--I can't believe I am sooo behind!!
Better computer work to all my friends!

WE WON!!! Pinedale played Lovell for our first playoff game and after a rough start we ended up winning. Unfortunately part of that is because we tackled their really good quarterback and he hurt his ankle. I know that sounds bad, but it really was the turning point for us. I felt bad for him and for their backup, you could tell he was feeling the pressure and totally not ready to be the man. They also had this huge guy on their team-number 72 (the only picture on their of only their team). To my knowledge he never got in, but man he was probably one of the biggest people I have ever seen. That's saying something too, because I have some tall friends :0). Anyways, I am super excited for the boys-Pinedale hasn't made it to the playoffs in years, and the fact that they won is even more satisfactory! We will play again next Saturday-either in Pinedale or in a city like 6-7hrs away. My vote is for playing in Pinedale-GOOD LUCK BOYS!!!
As the title says this is our Master and extra bathroom. I love this place for the sheer fact that our Master rocks. This will probably be the nicest thing we will ever live in, so I'm savoring it while I can (a walk in closet-who knew it could be so redeeming?). Because it had 1 1/2 more bathrooms than we've had before, I decided to revamp our room and do a new color scheme. My mom gave me this blue and brown bedspread for my birthday (but it's for a king sized bed that I am currently saving up for), and my mother-in-law gave me the towels for the master bathroom for my birthday. I won art lessons from a lady in our ward at our relief society auction so soon I will have some cool paintings to put in our room too. The hot pink and black in the extra bath we've had in our past places, but I think it is one on my favorites!!! I have found some cool stuff at different places to decorate with. Most of the stuff on our dresser is from our wedding-thanks Courtney for the picture frames! Well only two more rooms to clean and post-I hate moving! I get so burnt out that I always have one place that ends up with all the leftovers dumped there, so now I need to reclaim my scrap room from all of the leftover stuff.

So this is my happy birthday to me! I received 3 of my 4 boxes today! I bought an extra camera battery, and the brand new photoshop elements with my leftover business money. I got all this scrapbooking stuff and my soon to come baby legs (for my business-I am not announcing anything)with my birthday money. Seriously, I know it's sad-but I shopped all day online when the school was doing testing, and picked out all my goodies! Who knew that the shopping would be just as much fun as getting my box? Who knew that 1 little box of scrappin stuff could make my day-well I guess all of you who know me could predict that!
Enjoy your hobbies!
So....after a few requests of posting what our place looks like-here's the first floor. I will show the upstairs when I get a chance to photograph it when it's clean :0). When you walk in there is a sitting room (with the clock and stars), then a hall with a 1/2 bath, then the open kitchen-dining-and living room. Our furniture is pretty hodge-podge, but all I can day is thank you to grandparents and family who like to give us free things! The first pieces of nice furniture we have bought are these black leather couches. I love how modern they look, and surprisingly they are pretty comfy, but so slick that you slide right out of them. It has stopped us from crashing on the couches though :0). Next piece to buy-a lovely brown leather king sized bed-I am currently saving up! Wish me luck!!!! Eric and I will hate moving from here unless we get something new with as much space and a garage! We pay a pretty penny for this place, it's teacher housing though so we only get 1 year in it (it's cheaper than market value here even at $1200/mo, the others in the area that are similar are around $2500-3000/mo), but it's only 1 year old and so much bigger than anything we have ever had, that we feel we are really lucky-even though the money was quite a shocker!
Warm homes for all my friends!
Enjoy the warmth if you've got it!
This game vs Kemerer was painful to watch. I felt bad for the boys-they were working very hard, but Kemerer was quite possibly twice the size of most of our boys. We were on defense most of the game and just couldn't seem to convert anything into a first down. The fact that it started snowing the day we played didn't help, as our field acts like a sponge for any moisture, and it was freezing cold-needless to say there was a lot of fumbles. Bummer deal, but maybe we will do better this Friday in Saratoga! Good luck boys!
Happy games to all my friends!

I was out doing a photo shoot this afternoon (yesterday's weather didn't cooperate!) and as I was on my way out I stopped to take some pictures of this horse around sunset time-when it decided to check out the insides of my car! Soooo funny, but I'm not a big fan of horses. I mean I think they're beautiful, but they kinda freak me out because they're so big-thank goodness this one was nice. Yes, that is him inside my Pilot-next to my light switch-hahaha, only in Wyoming :0).
Close encounters for all my buds!
Happy birthday to me! I skipped out on school and went with our friends the Nelson's to the Pinedale Varsity v.s. Mountain View. WE WON, and will be going to the regional tournament for the first time in a long time. Although there was a game delay and a little rain-the game was definitely worth it, so thank you boys for the birthday win!!
