So... onSaturday, November 6th from7:00 A.M. to 9:00 A.M., the OremBed Bath & Beyond is having a 30% off your entire purchase event (including clearance, and 25% off baby items ordered) for employees, their families, and their friends. The only catch is that if you want to go, we have to all be there at the same time-- so let me know. Everyone is invited! Let me know if you're interested so we can plan an exact time to save big. :) ...There will be breakfast too!
On Sunday, Marcus and I went to the studio where he works to see if Fall was setting in there. Usually it's one of the prettiest places this time of year. The leaves are just starting to change, so we took a bunch of pictures. I guess this means it will be cold soon :(
I wanted to brag about Marcus a little bit... He made this flyer for his design class, and I think it's stinkin' amazing! :) His teacher is crazy picky, and I have no idea what she thinks-- but who cares.... it's great!!! It is small, to avoid becoming blurry after being uploaded to the blog, but I still wanted to share it with whoever checks our blog... It's for the last shuttle mission (STS stands for the Space Transportation System), obviously scheduled for June 28th, 2011. On the side, it says, "30 Years > 133 Flights > 700 million miles > 1 Last Time" (Click on the picture, it should enlarge.)
Marcus had a really busy Friday, but somehow he worked it out so everything was all close together... once we were in Salt Lake. Luckily his parents live there! He spent ALL DAY at a transhumanism conference in order to write an article for the Daily Universe, and he made it through the entire thing with only one bag of Skittles. That's dedication if you ask me. After a quick dinner break with pizza from The Pie, we headed off to his mission reunion. He saw his mission president and a couple former companions, but none of his "children." The funny thing is after the evening there, we only left with one picture...
Charlotte and Marcus
(she's the daughter of Bryan Stroud, one of Marcus' companions)
And then after a short nap, he took off for his work shift to help with General Conference, like he always does. That started at 3 A.M. Marcus is amazing -- I don't know how he does everything he needs to all day and then works all night. I fell right asleep and didn't even hear him leave. And I spent the day hanging out with Cozette and Kate. Cozette did help me finish my actual first sewing project.
For the record, the stripes are different sizes on purpose :)
I think it looks great ;) Definitely a great beginning project. Maybe one day I will get really good at sewing and think it's lame, but right now, I can't believe it's finished. And I did it! (I would take sewing a funky blanket over a transhumanism conference any day! :)
