BIG Orange

Reed has been wanting an older truck for some time now so we started looking around for some good deals. We found one that we both really liked but the guy sold it without ever calling us back, Reed was bummed. That day we were driving and saw one just like it in someone's field. It was in better shape, however it didn't have a for sale sign. "Mr. Bright Idea" {as our families like to call him} decided to go knock on their door to see if they wanted to sell it. 

I thought Reed was crazy and told him not to but.... he did anyway and much to my surprise they did want to sell it. I liked it, Reed loved it, it was in excellent shape and best of all it was a sweet deal. Meet our new addition to our family. 
A 1978 Ford F-150 Ranger. 

Our intentions are to put a little work into it here and there and get this thing in tip top shape. Reed was doing just that on Tuesday night when this happened...

This picture was taken at 2 AM when we got home from the ER.
Nice huh...
More to come on that later.

We are trying to come up with a name for our new ride. Reed likes Big Orange, I like Orange Blur. Anybody have suggestions??

 Hello my name is Kaitlin and I was addicted to coke..

Yep that's right its official. I've been off coke for 3 weeks now. My closest friends and family all now how much I love it and I'll tell you it wasn't easy that's for sure.
 After I got past the migraines the first 3 days it was easy, until I went back to work where I was serving people coke all day. Now I'm past all the cravings and I feel good! 

Now my next addiction to quit, chocolate.. haha yeah right!

Coffee Table

When Reed and I were newly married we found a coffee table at a yard sale for $10 so we snatched it right up. The only thing it needed was a paint job. Reed decided he would be the one to take on this task and lets just say his finish on the table wasn't to my liking, but he LOVED it! Every time someone would come over and comment on our coffee table he would just look at me with the biggest smile. I finally decided to "fix" Reed's job, even though it wasn't that bad I just wanted it to go along more with my taste. Unfortunately I do not have any before pictures cause I'm forgetful cool like that.

I'm very happy with the way it turned out! Now I just need some cute decorations for the top, I already have a plan. Plus Reed said he likes my job better than his :)

This weekend Reed and I were able to go to Salt Lake for General Conference for our church. We went to go to Reed's mission reunion and hang out with some old mission companions. We were also able to hook up with one of my best friends Missy.

We had a good weekend being away from our normal routine, plus there's nothing like being in the same room as the prophet. <3
