Murder Mystery

Photo: Murder Mystery Party 2013! Had a great time, thanks everyone! :)

We have such great friends, and they apparently trust us very much. We were invited to do a Murder Mystery (you know, you act out your part and play sleuth to find the murderer?) to replace a couple that couldn’t come. Brig and I didn’t know any of the other couples except 2- and I think that means that they must have trusted us to fit in with the rest of them really well! I don’t know why, but it made me feel really great. It’s nice to know your friends (and our new friends!) though we were “alright”.

Being newly married is so funny- we have almost totally forgotten what it’s like to get together with a bunch a friends! That may sound really silly, and that’s because it is! We probably get out to visit or do something with friends, like, once a month. I don’t know if that’s normal. But when we do get ourselves out- it’s always so much fun!

And so, to our friends: We love you dearly. Don’t think that our absence means that we don’t like you! We do! We just haven’t gotten over being married yet I guess. And that’s alright 🙂 We’ll break out of that I’m sure (well, not so sure. Just assuming :P). Thank you for always reaching out to us- we always enjoy our time with you!

FYI- I totally knew who the murderer was. I’m awesome.

Also, my husband is a scary good actor. Mostly because he acts like himself 😛

And, and special thanks to our new friends for letting us have so much fun with you!

5. I am grateful for my husband’s patience. He knows what I mean.

6. I am grateful for a working vehicle. Life is so much easier when you have control over your transportation!

 

Picturepalooza!

Because of our sporadic internet availability, posting regularly has been a little hard! So, may I present you with tons of pictures!

First! I gave Brig a haircut. I’ve never given anybody a haircut before… So it was an intensely scary hour for us both! haha. We could’ve taken 10 minutes and $10 to have someone else do it, but where’s the fun in that??

Next, we made a new friend: AJ from “The Chocolate Conspiracy” in SLC. We went to an organic, vegan chocolate making class there and had a blast! We got to taste cacao beans from all over the world (they all taste different by themselves!) and made our own ganache truffles. It was so fun and AJ was a great host.  The only problem now is that regular store-bought chocolate is no longer tasty or satisfying. Only premium artisan chocolate will do for us now! Sigh. 🙂

Brig and I have begun to “mass produce” our BBQ sauces! These pictures only show one of them, the original “Barb-a-hooah” that Brig has been making for a couple years now. It’s really good! We have 3 others too- a tangy/mustardy chicken sauce, a sweet BBQ sauce, and an amazing chicken glaze. YUM! And we want some taste testers, so let us know if you’d like to try some!

We went out with our friends Ash and Jordan to “Color Me Mine” for a Jordan concert! We loved being serenaded by lovely renditions of John Mayer, The Beatles, and James Taylor, and our favorites: Jordan originals. We suggest you all go listen to him play one of these weekends! Brig and I have lofty goals of having dogs in the future, so we painted ourselves some super cute doggie bowls… and are now using them as cereal bowls.

Tate’s school put on “The Wiz”, which if you don’t know, is the ghetto’s version of the “Wizard of Oz”- bursting with groovy beats and “don’t trust the white guy” themes. It was fun, especially watching our Orem, UT white kids try to groove bro-style.

Oh! here they are: The new bottles and labels for some of our BBQ sauces!

Basically, what this post is trying to say is that we are incredibly happy. We have so much fun together, we dream big, we play and are trying to ease ourselves back into society (you know, answering phonecalls, hanging out with friends and family; things like that). Life couldn’t be more wonderful together, and we are so pleased to see that each day gets better.
