Strawberry Jam

The Magleby's love their strawberry jam. Since Scott and I have been married (and even the year we were engaged)in late April/early May, we make up several batches of the sweet goodness. I don't know what happened last year-but the jam did not get made and we have been out for quite some time. Yesterday we woke up late (10:30- I guess that is one of the perks of not having kids yet) and decided that since we didn't have really
anything else to do- it was jam day.

The Jazz and The Landscaping

Monday night we had someone come and give us a bid on landscaping our yard. Because Scott has some connections, the bid came in not much more than we could have done it for ourselves (plus it was a lot less work for us). On Wednesday Scott calls me and says that something came up and they would not be able to start on on yard for two weeks. I was a little bummed- but not big deal, we haven't had a yard since we moved in so what was a couple of weeks. When I came home that night, I was pleasantly surprised to find they already had the retaining wall and the sprinkler system in. (Scott thinks that he deserves an A+ for that joke). Thursday night I came home and there was probably 15-20 guys at my house and they were planting trees, pouring concrete, and putting in my planter boxes. By Friday, I had grass. I was so impressed and the yard looks amazing.

This weekend we had tickets to the Jazz/Nuggets game so we decided to make it into a well needed weekend away. Scott surprised with me a stay at the Anniversary Inn in the Capital Retreat room. My favorite part of the whole room was that the bathroom was hidden behind a secret door in the bookcase. Sunday morning we slept in and then went and walked around temple square enjoying the sunshine and the flowers.

An Army of Paper Onesies...

Mom was able to come down for the weekend and so I put her to work helping me make baby shower invites for my sister Brittany, who is expecting a girl in July. I think the invites turned out really cute. Thank heavens there are creative people out there that I can copy.
