Round 2

Shane and I planted our first garden together this year. We planted peppers, tomatoes, corn, strawberries, cucumber, garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley, and some other things. We planned on blogging about the success of our garden, but that will never be possible due to the fact that I don't have a green thumb and the garden is failing under my care. Fortunately, Shane gave me a "Chia Herb Garden" for Christmas, which I recently uncovered in a box downstairs. So, I'm trying again, and it says on the box that this will work if I just follow the instructions....we'll see.

I'm trying to germinate the seeds, and the plastic bags are to make a greenhouse effect. I will be so happy if I could just make something grow!

Saturday Thrifting

Shane and I went to the D.I. on Saturday to look around, and I found these beautiful vintage plates. There was a complete set of 12, all in perfect condition for $.50 a piece! I bought them, of course, and now I'm just trying to come up with a fun, girly occasion for which to use them.

The End Product

What do you think? Im done redoing my
74 Honda CB 550 Supersport...

Notice the new front fender, Thanks Grant!
I picked a blue that sparkles just a touch.
I painted the exhaust manifold matte Black

The pipe has an insert, without it is so amazingly loud.

The mirror paint matches the paint on the exhast manifold.
The gauges are chrome (switched from black).
I finally worked out an electrical problem with the headlight.
The blinkers are after market, (thanks again to the McCalebs).
New Clubman Bars, (cafe racer handle bars)

And its wicked fast...

Dont dry girl jeans...

This is what happens when Lauren's jeans get dried. (courtesy of the renters) skinny tight jeans are so in with the hipsters that in the heart hipster provo ( which is speculated to be within 2 blocks of our house) I actually get complements. I have meaty hamstrings. Notice the bulging forearm.. I swear I wasn't flexing... ok maybe a little.

Heart of Utah Award

Im just gonna be honest and say that I really enjoy the occational black tie event... whos with me? am I alone?

Haven J. Barlow Sr. served some 50 years in the Utah legislature and like half of those as the majority whip. We sat right up front at one of his assigned tables. It was alot of fun, the event was put on by the Heart Association in cahoots with a bunch of serious sponsers. It was actually a fund raiser, they did an empty auction/no items to buy just and auctioneer and peoples check books. my wife is hot.
