Schhhh-ool (Insert Megamind)

You know what's frustrating? After about a month of thinking you are enrolled in the classes you want, you realize they aren't what you really want. And what I mean by they aren't what I really want I mean I registered at the wrong campuses! Yeah, not Rocklin. Try Nevada and Tahoe. FAIL.

I had to drop all my classes. And let me tell you, I was so BUH-HUH-UMED. I had this planned out in my head to be done with pre-requisites by the end of Winter semester and that plan kind of got swept off the table... temporarily. LUCKILY, I got 2 of them back (Nutrition and Microbiology), but in the RIGHT location this time. Talk about pain in my rear!

Now, aiming for that second science class I still need to add to my schedule for the Fall... Anatomy, anyone?

America the Beautiful

Fourth of July weekend, we went to the Folsom Rodeo and watched an amazing presentation of the American flag, with a spectacular firework show afterwards. They did the fireworks right in the stadium, so they were literally shooting off right above us. It was awesome! 

It was also Everett's first birthday! He was born on July 4th, 2010. Little firecracker! Max had this great idea to get a Kings Jersey and iron on Jimmer Fredette's name on it. I LOVED the idea, but we couldn't find any King's memorabilia anywhere!!! So we found a white tank top from Old Navy and got our iron-on letters from Michael's. We also got him a "Baller" Basketball (because he's a baller, haha).  I think it turned out great and... he's the first to have a King's shirt with Jimmer's name and number!

I made Fourth of July sugar cookies. Num num num.

Our Getz family came into town and we had a blast hanging out. I didn't get very many pictures but I did get this one of Max and Mom. Max got a lot of sun! Making up for all that time he spends in the office :)

Bistro Challenge: Check!

 The paint color is a light grey.
 Can you see the detailed glazing?
The cushions are brighter than they appear here in the evening. The color scheme works, trust me!

I finished before this weekend like I wanted! And I'm happy with it!

The boards are still crooked which is why I decided to glaze it and bring out the nooks and crannies of the table and seats.  Bring out the perfection in it's imperfections kind of thing. Story: I was asking an associate at Lowe's about glazing products and he responded, "Not to be rude or anything, but that's going out of style." I couldn't believe he was saying that. Who thinks of saying that?! I said, nicely, that it actually STILL is a great technique, especially for beaten up, hand-me-down furniture. I didn't really take his opinion seriously... Neither should you.

The cushions are from World Market. Super cute and cheap!!! I love accessories. They make it so nice. The candle bird cage is from Pier 1 on clearance. It sets such a nice atmosphere in the evening. And I LOVE candles...remember I told you that? 

And the lovely white and red petunia flower box! I LOVE them. I cant wait for them to bloom and grow. It softens the balcony and contributes to the mood of the setting. I love projects!
