Jury Duty

I had a super fun weekend that kicked off with a Jury summons for Friday - YAY! This was my second summons in two months, i think i got 2 because the first one didn't go to trial.

I got picked to be in the first group of 10 to be questioned. The judge, prosecutor and defending lawyer asked us tons of questions about potential biases. I think my ship was sunk when i said i had a cousin who is a Cache County Sherriff, who even pulled me over once :) It was for a busted tail light that we had already ordered a replacement for.

Anyway, they didn't end up picking me and actually they only chose a jury of 4 people for the trial. I thought that was kind of weird, but the judge said that's how many they used for that type of case.

So in the end, i only was there about 2 hours. Good thing, because the daily pay for jury duty is only $18.50 in Utah. No wonder it's called civil service and they have to force you to come under penalty of jail time :)

What a Handsome Pair

Aren't these two some good lookin' men? It's Chris with his Grandpa Nelson last saturday. We went down to Sandy to visit his grandparents who moved there a few months ago from St. George. We hadn't been able to see them for a while since they were living so far away, but now that they're in Sandy, we should be able to visit a lot more. YAY!

Horribly Awesome

Warning! Watching this video may get you totally hooked and singing along, even when you don't want to be :) I have experienced this side effect, but i think it was because i over dosed.

What the heck am i talking about? It's Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, starring Neal Patrick Harris(Doogie Houser/How I Met Your Mother) and Nathan Fillion (the movie Serenity is a favorite). It was created by Joss Wheadon(TV: Firefly, Angel) along with his bro Jed. It tells the tale of a potential evil genius as he tries to take over the world, while also working up the courage to talk to his dream girl.

If you have netflix, you can watch it all at once through their instant streaming service. If you don't, you have to watch it a chunk at a time on youtube. It's pretty short(45 mins) but packed with great music and a suprise ending. Also there may be a sequel in the works :)

Here's the first bit (6 mins-ish), then you'll have to go get the rest. So take a look and laugh your pants off!

Lookie What I Made

I just finished this quilt. I started it before Chris and I got married, maybe even before we were dating. Then with moving and stuff I totally forgot about it. About 3 weeks ago when i was going through all my sewing stuff, I found it and decided to finish it.

This quilt has 60 hand appliqued hearts on it in a harlequin diamond pattern. I Hand quilted the diamonds and then decided to add squares for more visual interest. The lines aren't perfectly straight, but I'm kind of do the best you can gal. :) I just got done last night hand sewing on the red binding.

This was a lot of fun to work on and i never would have been able to finish it if Chris hadn't gotten me a quilting hoop for my birthday :)

Today is the Relief Society Birthday party and talent show and I'm going to display this quilt as my talent, which is why I was trying so hard to finish it. Now the only question is, what will my next project be?
