Sunday School

Taylor and I have been teaching Sunday School since we got married and started going to our ward. We teach 12, 13 and 14 year olds... and there is 22 of them. Yup you heard me, 22.
Not all of them come every week, but we usually have anywhere from 15-20! Anyway, it has been a really good experience so far and we have loved it. I spend all of Sunday school laughing my head off, or trying not to cause it isn't always appropriate. I love watching Taylor teach because he is so great at it! There is a boy named Zack and I always tell Taylor that I really like him because he is just so cute and funny. Last Sunday, we were asking the kids about Valentines Day, what they were doing, and if they had a Valentine. Some of them said they did and some didn't. Taylor said " I have a Valentine." Zack replies, "She is way out of your league, man." Thanks Zack, I always knew I liked you!

My Masterpiece



My parents were throwing this beauty out and asked me if I wanted it. At first I thought no way cause lets be honest it was hideous, but then my creative thinking came out and I had all these ideas of how I could make it fabulous. I have also wanted a piece of turquoise furniture for some time now, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity! (Taylor has also been wanting a desk for his "office" He doesn't love how girly it is, but hey it was my project, he doesn't get to choose) See what a little sanding, turquoise paint, and cute knobs can do? I literally painted this desk MONTHS ago, but it took a long time to get from my parents basement to our little apartment. And then even longer for me to find the right knobs, take pictures, and blog about it! I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. It makes our little spare bedroom/make shift office that much cuter and its fun to have a statement piece of furniture!
