restoration project

This semester, Brig is taking a class on how to paint your own car (and he's getting school credit for it! so unfair). So, naturally he needed a car to paint, and instead of painting a firebird and racing stripes on my accord (I was all for that idea), he decided to take his grandpa's 1945 dodge job-rated pickup that was used for cherry picking in the Orem orchards and completely restore it. Brig's going to paint it a candy apple red, and because he's in an engine repair class as well, (I know, sounds like he's going to school to be a mechanic rather than a dentist...) he'll get the car running. It's going to be a lot of work, but it'll be a great restoration project. I'm super excited to see the process!!!
My life is so boring I have to post what my boyfriend is up to... pretty pathetic. That being said, I am really excited for this project and can't wait to see the finished product. More pics up soon.

For some reason, I have always had the worst luck with parking. Whether it be driving around the BYU parking lot for 30 minutes just trying to find a spot, getting a ticket for parking in a faculty lot (even though I was completely unaware it was a faculty lot), or getting a ticket from Provo city for parking in front of my own apartment because I was parked in front of an invisible fire hydrant (at least I swear it was invisible and appeared after I saw the ticket on my windshield), those darn Provo policemen seem to be out to get me. I think it's nigh time I start riding a bike.

Lake Powell

Powell with the Heaps: Best Labor Day weekend EVER. I was privileged enough to be invited to the Labor Day couples trip with Brig's parents and their friends and I had a blast. Even though I had a cold, I had so much fun. From paddle boarding to kayaking to tubing to wake surfing to even hiking a slot canyon, we did pretty much everything you can imagine. A big thank you goes to the Heaps for sharing their vacation with me!

Brig and I aboard a paddle board. Neither of us can make a normal face...sad.
THE most intense tubing I have ever experienced. Exerting all my effort to merely hold on so as to not skip across the water at 30 mph.
The following pictures are not altered in any way... yes I went canyoneering! I now have proof that I am not a complete wuss.
Were my feet dangling at this point? yes.
Yep that's me up top.
All in all, a very eventful but amazing trip! Definitely hope to go back soon. Ah Little Tahiti, while aboard you, life truly is one long, relaxing vacation.
