Five Foot TROPHY!

Rocky Mountain Raceways Awards Banquet 2010!
This season of racing has been quite a ride! I have been around Cory and his bike/racing before (i mean our prom "day date" was down south at his desert race!) Plus in the desert racing you only see the riders for about ten seconds as they race on to the next mark but in motocross you sit on the bleachers and watch everything go down! Watching your husband out there is a different story! I was a little more attached to the man rounding the corners at 50 miles per hour.....But we made it through this season with no broken bones or cracked skulls!! At the end of each season they have a nice banquet where the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places are the only ones invited! Guess who got 1st place over all in the vintage class......Cory!! His dad placed 1st in the sportsman class! The 1st place guys get a free tux rental from Tuxedos by Lee. Cory in baby blue and his dad in mint green.....don't forget the ruffles!!

By the end of the night Cory had to lose the bow tie...but it didn't go far (Thanks to me!)
And did i mention his trophy is almost FIVE FEET TALL?!?!??!!

Batman and...Superman?

Nitro Circus Halloween race 2010

Cory and Cody after the race!
I never see the resemblance until you get them side by side!

Cory, mid race waiting his turn to be smart and skip the log section!

Superman=Steve...... Thor=Cody........ Batman=Cory
First time in years all three of them together on the starting line!

Notice the six pack in Superman's throat!!! hahaha

Would you believe that both of these costumes were size 10-12 (large) little boys!!

Tara and Wyatt dressed up like Wayne and Garth from the famous Waynes World!!! They nailed the outfits and hair! one said that during this race they had to go over.... tractor tires, logs, rocks, crushed cars!!!! Not something for a wife to watch! Thanks baby for riding "smart"!!!!

365 days of marriage!!!

For our anniversary we partied like it was nineteen sixty NINE!!! Or 2010! I cant believe my big day was a full year ago (ok so now its a year and one month)!! Cory and I have had a blast this past year! We have sure had our share of struggles but i truly think we've had it pretty easy!
Things I have learned this past year:
  • Check if the seat is down.... BEFORE you sit down in the weeeeee hours of the morning when you are half asleep! That's a rude awakening!!
And that's it!!! ha oh just kidding but this has been quite an adventure! I cant wait for the next 32093840129384 years!!

Aug 14th 2010 we played at Alpine days for the first part of the day! I love the feeling when a whole town gets together and celebrates where they live!!! We watched the parade, had awesome pulled pork sandwiches and walked around the cute vendors! I treated myself to a darling headband made by my friend Kyler! She is so talented and makes the greatest headbands! Then we relaxed at home and took a two hour nap while watching chicken run! We got up to SLC and attempted to check in to the INN ON THE HILL, (great little old fashion historical bed and breakfast on capital hill!) ATTEMPTED is the key word here, here's how it went down...

  • Walk in, I start snappin pictures right and left.
  • Cory walks back to the desk to check in
  • Rings the service bell
  • no answer
  • rings again a little harder this time because it says press hard..... no answer
  • rings one more time before coming to explore with me .....we think they are showing someone a room
  • I read a whole People magazine
  • Cory watch's TV
  • Cory calls the answer
  • I ring the bell...thinking I have magical powers that with my swift touch it will answer
Cory calls a second time.... LADY ANSWERS!!! It sounded like she just woke up, to our surprise she had! Cory, trying to keep her attention finally explains that we are trying to check-in (harder then it sounds apparently) She comes tripping up the stairs WASTED!!!! I could not stop laughing she was so funny! So after 30 mins we finally get to see our room!!! It was beautiful! Cory did a great job picking out the location and room (with some rather subtle hints from your truly)! We stayed in the Saltair room, queen sized heavenly bed, jetted HUGE tub, awesome view! That night we went to bucca di beppo (sp?) best part...we got a free brownie because it was our anniversary! We were on cloud nine! Its sad that something so simple could bring us so much joy!!! Seriously if you ever want to win my heart over....give me chocolate! After that we went and played on capital hill!I totally recommend the INN ON THE HILL.......even with the wasted lady! It just added to the experience!

Cory- Thank you so much for taking me out for a romantic night on the town! I have been so blessed to be married to you and i'm reminded of that every morning i wake up to you! I couldn't have asked for a more loving and caring husband! Thank you for your sweet spirit you bring to our home! I love you baby!

So Recap of the summer.....blogging has been last on my list! Sorry to say but this is the truth!!! Weddings up the WaZoo!!! Plus everything that comes with that, Bridal showers, Bachelorette parties, wedding dinners/lunch in's, and I have loved every minute of it!! My friends Meg and Lindsey got married (not to each other....:)) this summer along with Cory's best friend I'm just waiting for them to enter the blogging world, we all know it will happen sometime! All their weddings were AMAZING! Congrats you guys!
Well biggest news of the summer...................................I HAVE NOT GONE BOATING YET! This is a sin, I know! With jumping into real life (married life, grown up stuff, working everyday to pay bills) we have not had anytime! Well the weather has not helped much! Sniff sniff, hopefully we will be able to get out there at least once before the snow hits!!! Sorry to say it but we all know its coming, with this crazy weather and all!

Cory hosted the second BARN GOOD SHOW and it was a Hit!!! We had over forty people show up to this one! The barn was full, every bench filled, and even a few unexpected visitors... I guess a cat had a litter of kittens, probably sometime earlier that week, so they were meowing almost the whole show! It added to that great old fashioned barn feeling :) With seven performers, each with several songs, the show lasted an hour and a half! There was great music and great company! He wants to make this a summer event, so keep your ears open for the next show!

We also Celebrated our 1st ANNIVERSARY!!! congrats to us!! Everyone says that the first year is the hardest...if that's true we have nothing to worry about!! Pics coming soon.............

Barn good show!

Cory put on a "barn good show"! He had everyone play acoustic and either cover songs or just play something they have created themselves! It was a blast! Blake Hallock, Steve and Terresa Hulmes, Brian Walker and Cory played! They all did an AWESOME job! It was fun to hear all different kinds of music! Also this barn was so old and fun to shoot! This barn was perfect for this, lights were already up and seats already there! This time it was pretty small gathering, like 15 or so people were there, But everyone loved it and got pretty excited for the next one!
The next "Barn good show" is august 20th, I'm pretty sure it will be around the same time as the last, eight 0'clock! We are trying to get a bunch of people there this time! Let me know if you want more info about it....address and everything! Plus it would be awesome if you wanted to play something or you know someone that would want to! There will be a piano there and a PA to mic guitars and vocals!!

Thank goodness the weather has gotten warmer....I was about to move to Hawaii just to keep my sanity!! (hey not a bad idea huh?!) Well this summer we have kept ourselves busy with little projects around the house.... you know "Honey do lists"! (So this is Cory... editing Katie's post so that the spelling is right... WE by we she means ME...)We have a list of things we need to get done around the house before we can even think about getting a mac book computer !!!! P.s Cory bought me a new camera!!! What a sweet heart! He found my same kind of camera on ksl and surprised me for a late birthday present!! I love when my birthday celebration lasts till middle of June!! Anyways back to the projects....
  1. We are painting glossy stripes on one wall of our room, the wall backing up to our bed! Then we are going to put crown molding just around that wall to frame it in and put up an old door for our head board! Pretty easy project, if we just put our minds to it! This "weekend project" has turned into a month long EXTRAVAGANZA!! and we are still not even close to being done! haha Story of our lives!
  2. Clean out the garage, We are getting closer to this goal! Cory hung up our bikes we just need to actually clean out the thing and give the four wheeler back to his parents! Once again pretty easy but some how still not done!!!
  3. Hook up the salon sink (which Cory bought for me back in December!!) Finally the sink is mounted it just needs to be hooked up to the water! After our flood we decided we need a pro to come in and hook it up! We are not about to explore that ourselves!
  4. Paint the Office desk! I'm actually really excited about this! We decided to paint our roll top desk black and mod-podge on the indents old fashion news paper! Sounds weird but it will look way cool, Plus new handles will really help this poor desk look SEXY!!!(She forgot to add my modern touch!!! Fully automatic roll top, I'm installing a switch and motor to open and close it.. I guess that's the engineer in me.)
Plus many more projects to come......
We have started on the bedroom wall....clearly didn't get far!

For fathers day kneaders was giving out free french toast!!! YUMMY!!! We took our chances on them turning us down because cory is not a father...yet, but they were totally cool and let us pretend we were part of the cool father club!!! p.s this french toast is to DIE for!!!!!!!
Cory decided he needed a chef hat...This was the best we could do!! haha (actually I didn't decide anything, Katie smashed it on my head and laughed... naturally I left it on to keep her laughing)
