I love 'Glee.' I miss 'Glee.'

But we got a good taste of it the other night on the Emmys!
Can't wait for Sept. 21!!
Oh, and 'Castle' starts on the 20th!

Moving Right Along

Foot loose and fancy free! We're starting to get things together in our new apartment. Matt and I put up our engagements and one of my bridals in our bedroom. Next to come are shelves in the front room and more pics on the wall. Hopefully we'll get everything done soon, I love it when we can feel more like the place is ours.
We also had a birthday party for our friend Weston! So, here are some pics for you to enjoy!
This may look a little weird, but I really tried to make a good-looking cake. I think I tried to frost it too fast after cooling, although I'm pretty sure I let it cool for more than an hour. Anyway, it fell apart while I was frosting. I freaked out and then Matt came to the rescue. He said we should cover it with a bowl and then stick it in the freezer. He thought the the cake would mold to the bowl and then we could frost it. It didn't really work that way, so we just put it in the bowl and frosted the top.
Instead of candles we used a chocolate and peppermint stick from Maddox restaurant. Matt loved that!
I think Weston appreciated it anyway - and it was yummy, if I do say so myself.
Everyone else who came! Thanks everybody for helping us make this day special for Weston!
And a video of the surprise - there weren't many people there. Matt told him to come at 6, which is when we told everyone to come. He should have told him to come at 6:15 so we had time to get everyone in the set! Oh, well! I love my husband anyway!

We said, "Goodbye," to an amazing lady today!

Faye Rigby was my great-grandfather, Howard's cousin's wife. But to us she was much more than that! She was a woman with an amazing smile, fantastically magnetic personality and a remarkable ability to bring love every where she went. She also always reminded me of my own amazing grandma Margo, who passed away when I was 12. When I was around Faye I always felt my gradma around. She loved everyone!
Matt and I headed out to Wyoming on Friday to watch his brother, Scott, show his last 4H steer at the Sweetwater County Fair (he made $1.85 a pound, which came out to be just over $2100). We then made our way to Idaho for Faye's beautiful funeral. After a total of 588 miles traveled, we are home and ready to sleep for a few days. We love being with family, having adventures and celebrating the lives of our loved ones. 
We will miss Faye, but we know that she is keeping her husband, Max and my grandparents company! Oh, how I would love to hear the conversations they're having right now. Probably about us :) We love you, Faye!
Have a great week everyone! Don't forget to tell everyone how much you love them!
