A Beautiful Thing...

Recognize this?

It's a brand spanking new water heater. Let's be honest, in reality this isn't very exciting. But after taking cold showers for 2 days...I'm in love!!

Back in January my friend and I made a goal to make a quilt this year! This is quite ambitious of us, because neither of us have made a quilt before nor are very good at sewing. But we figured if we just worked on it together for a few hours every month, we could finish by the end of the year!

Last night we got together at May and cut our blocks. It's starting to look like a real quilt (its a chevron quilt)!

This is mine starting to come together - a blue and brown color pattern. Erin's is shades of yellow.

Erin is domestic!

Hooray for Friday! It's almost the weekend (and a 3 days weekend too)! Can't wait to spend it relaxing, BBQing, and hanging out with family and friends.

I think I have unknowingly become a crazy cat lady. I was looking through the pictures I've taken on my phone and the majority are of my cat, Lily. By the way, most are of her sleeping because when she is awake she doesn't hold still long enough to let us take her picture!

She has grown a ton since we first brought her home.

The moral of this story is I better figure out other things to take pictures of before I become a crazy cat lady...

Sometimes Matt wears similar things to his co-workers. Apparently they think alike. See this below picture? Similar, but not the same.

Last week Matt went to went and was matching one of his co-workers. Literally matching. Hilarious (and awkward)!

Secret Agents Anyone?

Do secret agents ride wiggle cars? Not sure...but we did last night!
Our friend Ethan (Matt's boss' son) asked us to help him make a music video for one of his classes (he's in jr. high). It was to Weird Al Yankovic's 'Party in the CIA' - a spoof on Mylee Cyrus' 'Party in the USA'. Hilarious! Now Ethan has to edit the video in his class. Stay tuned for the final edited version - our Hollywood debut! (I'll post it here when he finishes!)

Vegas Getaway

This has unintentionally become somewhat of a travel blog. That's not really my intention of the blog, but, it is what it is!

Last weekend we went to Vegas to celebrate our 7th anniversary (7 years flew by, I don't feel old enough to have been married 7 years)! It has always been on my bucket list to stay in the Bellagio in a room overlooking the fountains, and Matt made it happen.

That's the view from our 26th floor room. Awesome!

We didn't take a ton of pictures on our trip. We spent the weekend sleeping in, laying out at the pool, shopping, watching the fountains endlessly from our hotel room, and eating delicious food. We also saw Ka at the MGM, which was amazing.

Street view of the fountains. We just had to see how they compared on the street to our view from our room. We decided they are just fun to see either way!

This is supposedly the world's largest chocolate fountain. It's at one of the cafe's in the Bellagio. You can even buy the chocolate from it. We had breakfast here one day, and ended up getting free chocolate covered strawberries because we had to wait for our food so long (because someone else took it)! The chocolate strawberries were definitely worth the wait.

Just exploring the City Center. What girl wouldn't love a giant shoe?

Our last night in Vegas we ate at the Sugar Factory, a restaurant in the Paris hotel. This is our dessert. A giant red velvet sundae. It was delicious.

It was a great anniversary weekend!
