Let's Catch Up!

I feel like I've totally abandoned my blog. Lo Siento.
September has been a crazy and expensive month! With school starting there comes leftover tuition fees, textbook ripoffs, my car needing inspection and registration (500 bones, yikes), birthdays, weddings, a fashion show, lots of driving. We seem to be constantly swiping our debit cards. YIKES!
Anyway :) School started back up about a month ago. We decided to take "first day of school pictures." Yay!
School has been pretty good so far. I've liked my classes, mainly because my classes involve more projects than tests (awesome!) Jon is doing well in his classes. He aced his Chem test last night, holla! He's taking some tough classes, but I know he'll do great. 
We've had some hard times in our family. My little brother Paul was in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago. He broke his femur, tibia, & hip socket, crushed his lungs, and possibly tore his bicep. He was in the hospital for about 2 weeks and now he's home, receiving home school and physical therapy. Hang in there, Paul! We love you.
Jon's grandpa Feller passed away 2 Sundays ago. It was quite a surprise, but we know grandpa is happy to be with the love of his life again. The day before he passed away we had a little family reunion that was in his honor. He was such a great guy and an example to us all.
One of my classes is called Dress and Humanity. Our first project was to create an outfit made from something else, something recycled. The theme was months of the year, so I decided to make a wedding dress out of white garbage bags. I chose June. I worked with two girls and we created a "classy summer gown." I just have a picture of part of it. I have one of the full outfit on my phone, I'll have to get it on here soon.
Two days ago two of our best friends, Jamie and Jordan, were married in the Salt Lake Temple. It was such a beautiful day! We were so lucky to be a part of the wedding, thanks Mr and Mrs Smith! And Congratulations :)
We got to spend a lot of time with some of our dearest friends. We love you guys!

 Danielle's farewell was last Sunday. She's leaving to serve a mission in the Philippines next Wednesday. D has been one of my greatest friends for years and years, and I'm so proud of her! I'll miss you!
Silly boys! Missing Jord and Tycen.
We are just loving married life! Even with all it's craziness and busy busy days. We're so lucky to have the lives which we do and have the greatest friends and family around!

Jon and I discovered one of our favorite bands, Between the Trees, at a Mae concert in 2008 {they were the openers.} They seemed to have fallen apart in 2009, because I hadn't heard anything new from them, and their guitarist was nowhere to be found in any of the pictures on their website. 
Well, my bad. Apparently they've had 2 albums since 2008! Jono found this video a couple days ago. 
We are in love with their new stuff. Give it a listen, I think you'll enjoy :)
