So I decided it was time to post pictures of my baby.. Tavon!
WARNING: He looks like a mutt! The poor thing needs to get his spring bath and hair cut but the weather has not allowed me to take him... It NEEDS TO STOP SNOWING!! :)

So this is our "before" picture and next week when he gets his Easter present (Bath, hair cut and new toy) then we will post more pictures! Because he is so handsome once he is all shaved!! Tavon is my first dog EVER!! My family is more of a cat family!! But when Ash and I moved to Coalville we decided it was time to get us a puppy! But now we live in a basement apartment in Park City and the owners are more of cat people!! GRR.. So Tav still lives in Coalville with my in-laws!

While we were in Coalville Ash had to make sure his motorcycle was still there! Boy.. he is just itching to start riding it! But the snow is sort of an issue!! :)

So last weekend was the Scrapbook Expo!! It was a blast! I finished my wedding scapbook.. (2 1/2 years later!) We scrapbooked all day Friday until about 11 pm and then got up and did it all again on Saturday! I even stuck my name in a drawing (with about 100 other women) and I actually won! It was great! I won a T-shirt from a shade store! I didn't really care what I won.. I was just happy that my name was chosen!!

Time to Update... Today is the 6 week anniversary of Flight 3407 that crashed outside of Buffalo, New York on February 12th, 2009 killing everyone on board and one man on the ground. The pilot was Marvin Renslow, my Dad's older brother. The family was able to gather in Flordia a week after the accident to celebrate his life. He was a great husband and father and had a passion for flying! The celebration was wonderful! Kaley, Marvin's 12 year old daughter was able to sing one last time for her dad as well as tell everyone about the great memories she will always have. Tyler, 18 years old, also spoke of the jokes, and advice his dad would always give.

The Bachelor Finale / Bachelorette Party

Last night was the much anticipated yet mostly spoiled Bachelor Finale. My friend Kasey and I threw a little Bachelor Finale Party last night with some of our co-workers. We have been obsessed with the show this season.. Every Monday without fail we would discuss the outcome and take our picks on the winner! 2 of our co-workers are tying the knot this month so we threw in a Bachelorette party!

This is Marion and Jennifer wearing their Bachelorette sashes!!

I did the honors of baking the Fun fetti cake seen above... But on Sunday Ash decided to cut himself a piece of that cake!!

Needless to say we were all lined on the couch for at least 3 hours (thank goodness for DVR) watching the dumb ending!! It was a very fun excuse to get together outside of work and just relax!
