Here, we made a billboard outside a well-known apartment building in Madrid.
This is what the city life in Rome is all about. This is a shot of the happy couple owning the night skies.
The Annandale Advocate is a small publication in the U.K. I guess our engagement made the front page. Go us!
They really love us in France. Check out the display at the Louvre.
A sidewalk artist was recently spotted painting one of my favorite pictures of Tyson and I on the streets of Rome. Italy loves us. As you can see, he is almost finished with Tyson's face and has started on mine a little bit. Looks great!
I've always wanted to be on a poster. And I get to be on one with my fiance, I'm so lucky. This little stand was spotted just outside Barcelona.
Here we are showing off my ring in a London train station.
Finally, one of our favorite shots is being painted on the side of Hotel St. Georg in Hamburg, Germany. I love the view of the valley in the background.
I know what you're thinking. "How can I get in on all the fun?!" Just go to photofunia.com and go crazy!
I was lucky enough to see my photos all over Europe. Where will your photos end up?

And for Tyson's sake, I'm super duper excited for "The Office" to start as well, even though it is on at the exact same time as "Grey's Anatomy" and I won't be changing the channel at all. So you better record it for me, Ty!
For all you "Grey's" fans out there: enjoy tonight's premiere! And let me know what you think!

Yep, you've guessed right! This blog is about cakes that have gone horribly and hilariously wrong. Another of our clients went on KSL's Studio 5 to do a segment, and one of the earlier topics on the show was an incredibly funny blog about really crappy and funny cakes. I was in the audio/visual room by myself making a DVD for our client and I was just laughing my head off at some of the cakes they featured on the show. The owner of the blog goes on-line and finds pictures of cakes that have been screwed up really bad or are just plain awkward and hilarious.
To explain these three cakes:
1. The first cake with the fireman was a poor decision made by a really tired guy ordering a cake. He needed a going away cake and was told by the cake lady he could have a decoration put on it for free. None of the decorations they had were seeming to fit the event (teddy bears, rainbows...) so, being as tired as he was, he just checked fireman. Later that night when he was in bed thinking about his day it dawned on him what he had done to the cake. He was in a panic. The next day he and his wife went to the store and picked up what turned out to be a "Good luck in China" fireman.
2. The second cake (teen pregnancy) can speak for itself. Why would someone even...? You know what, I don't even want to know the reasoning behind it.
3. The last one is just sick. Congratulations, it a girl! Yep, it a girl and a horrible conglomerate of colors and shapes that have nothing to do with a baby shower.
I love this blog!
Every time I look at it I sit there and laugh out loud. I highly recommend it! Just click here and you're on your way to the fun! Let me know what you think! Have fun, you're going to love it!

I spent this last weekend in Idaho and it was a picture perfect weekend. My plan was to leave from work on Thursday night (I don't work Fridays, it's nice) and get to Idaho Falls around 8:30 or 9. Atleast that's what I told everyone I was doing. Instead, I left work at 4:00 (I had to get to Rexburg anyway) and drove to Idaho Falls to surprise Tyson after he got home from work. The plan worked out great, I even surprised Amber. I spent that evening in Rexburg getting some things done and seeing old friends. I miss them all!

My job at Richter7 has already gotten off to a great start, even though I've only been there three days. I was terrified the first day, but my nerves calmed down quickly. Everyone is really nice, and I've already started making new friends. I was immediately thrown into a lot of work, including writing and editing press releases, and meeting with clients. But today was a big day, and by far my favorite! It was so fun! Here's what happened:
One of our clients is the Dairy Farmers of Utah. The Utah State Fair starts this weekend, and we are doing a lot of work for this particular client. One of which includes advertising for the Butter Cow - a sculpting event where a life-size cow is carved entirely out of butter. Pretty crazy! Today, a nutrititionist with the Dairy Farmers of Utah was doing a segment on Studio 5 - the 11:00 news broadcast for KSL channel 5 news. At this time the two anchors do broadcasts about home and family living. Our client (her name is Rachel) was on to talk about nutritious lunches for kids and how parents can teach kids to eat healthier. My job, along with my supervisor Abby and my fellow intern Amanda, was to bring all the props for the segment and get them set up on the kitchen set. We had to arrange everything perfectly to look good on the camera. Nothing out of place! All labels had to be turned a certain way, and we pretty much had to make it look really good. So we did, and we pretty much rocked it. In public relations, we are there to help our client look good in any case. Even if that means we have to tell them what to say. We had previously e-mailed the anchors a list of questions they should ask Rachel, then we e-mailed Rachel the same questions and also ways to answer each of them. And she did such a great job! She was very relaxed and focused.
I've included our segment on this post, and I'm so excited to share it with everybody! My very first project as an intern...I can't believe it! It was completely behind-the-scenes work, which I know is silly that I'm so excited about it, but it was a lot tougher than most would think! Plus, it was my first big task for Richter7. Keep an eye on that fruit plate and how good of a job arranging I did ha ha. It took some time to get everything just right to fit in the lighting perfectly! Not to mention the Barbie thermos I got to keep. You'll understand what I mean when you watch the video!
I can't believe how much fun I had today! I worked closely with the producer and set people, and I learned so much from all of them. I know I'll have even bigger projects to come in the future. But this made me feel so good about being in the world of public relations and working with real businesses! I had a great time today, and I am really enjoying this job so far! Thanks to all of you for your support during this exciting time! It's been awesome reading such nice messages from so many friends and family!
