No one Mourns the Wicked

Show stopping number

I had the opportunity this past weekend to go and see Wicked the Musical at Gammage.
It was a fantastical musical. I went with my sister Jenny and her husband Shane and my parents.
Great set design, great costumes, great dancing, great songs!
If you ever have the chance to go I would highly recommend it.
It does make me wish that I was more talented though. : (

I give Wicked two big thumbs up.
Thanks for the memories!

keeps me entertained

Playing at the splash pad

It is amazing that Tori can keep me so entertained by not doing very much at all. I love this little girl so much.

I do have to apologize for my appalling appearance. I had just gone swimming and look awful. I promise I don't normally look like that. At least Tori is cute.

Special Thanks

I wanted to give a super special thanks to everyone who helped us move, paint, and get us into our house.
Special shout out to:
Vic and Joyce Gordon (the best in-laws a person could ask for).
They came down from Utah to help us paint, clean, lay tile, move, transported a moving van from Utah so we wouldn't have to rent one, bought and installed random necessities. I will be forever in debt to them.

John, Lilk, Nate, Scott, and Rachel
My family who came over everyday to help clean my house, watch Tori so I could paint, painted as well, moved my furniture over. My mother was a huge help in me moving so quickly.

Tyler and Kristin Feltner
Wonderful family as well. The helped us by lending us their vehicle to haul our stuff around, helped laid tile, and kept me entertained during the whole process.

Ron Jr.
Brett's Boss. Who came over an hour and half earlier then everyone else on moving day and helped us load up the trailer and brought his own trailer to fill as well. Thanks Ron. You're the best boss ever.

Tiffany Haynie:
Who drove all the way from Queen Creek to come and help me pack up my kitchen and move it over, even organized it for me and helped paint Tori's room.

Tami G:
My lovely relator who helped me find and get into my house.
Ryan H:
My finance guy who dealt with my annoying phone calls on a daily basis and got me a killer deal on a house. Thanks for putting up with me.


house projects

I've been quite busy decorating my new house and painting every single room, including trim and closets.
By popular demand I am now posting pictures of my progress. I will post many more soon as I finish the last touches on each room.
My house looks brand new now.
My nice Gordon Sign for my pot shelf.
This picture shows you just how big the sign actually is.
Drum roll please.....

I wish...

I wish Hogwarts and Harry Potter were real. Oh how I love the Harry Potter movies.
Nikki, Kristin, Austin, Jayden, Nate, and I went and saw the midnight showing of the Half-blood prince. No it was not crowded. Yes it was worth the lack of sleep today. Yes I dressed up. I am here to report that it is fantastic and everything I expected it to be.
Yes it was 2 hours and 45 minutes long but I wished it would have gone on longer.
I now can't wait until the next movie to come out. Thankfully I have read the next book and know how it ends.
To all the Harry Potter fans out there.... Long Live Harry Potter!!!

4 years BABY!

Only 4 short year ago we were first announced as Mr. & Mrs. Gordon
We have done a lot these last four years together. They have all been wonderful.
We have had a lot of change happen over the past four years. For example:
We have moved 4 times, 9 different vehicles, 9 different jobs, and a baby.
We now feel settled down with our new home, jobs, and Tori.
I feel this year will even top the rest... if that's possible.
Brett, thank you for marrying me! Thanks for all you do for our little family.
I love you with all my heart!
