If you want to make my dreams come true...

Okay, oh my gosh. I am hyperventilating. Literally.

I. love. this. dress.

I have never, ever loved an article of clothing so much.

I've been searching for the PERFECT Easter/graduation dress. And I found this Zac Posen dress which fulfills all of my wildest dreams.

Unfortunately, it was produced in 2007, and even if I could find it for sale anywhere online... I'd have to sell my beloved Prius to even consider owning it.

Ahhh, I have to go wipe up my drool. And dry my tears.

Looking for a good book?

While visiting Duchesne, I raided their public library.

Jeannie, Dalaney's mom, is the librarian, so she signed me up for a shiny, new library card declaring my new surname, Hannah Mecham.

I reviewed the NY Times Best-sellers where Katherine Stockett's The Help achieved the #1 spot.

Stockett, a Mississippi native, creates unique characters to portray the social and political environment of Jackson, Mississippi during the early 1960s. Intertwining the perspectives of African-American maids and the privileged white women that they work for, I couldn't put the book down, and I finished it in just three days.

My mom emailed me the other day encouraging me to read The Help, and I chuckled out loud because I was going to recommend it to her.

Turns out, they are now producing a movie based on the book. I can't wait :)

And the madness has begun

Dalaney and I completed our March Madness brackets last night. Shout out to the insightful advice from my basketball-lovin' dad!

Because of all these unforeseen upsets, I'm only 4/7, so I'm no longer eligible for the $10 million dollar prize from Sobe Lifewater. :( And it's too bad because I'd already decided how I would have spent the much-needed money in my head. Two words: early retirement. Before even entering the workforce...

I decided that it would be simply foolish to drop out of BYU with only 3 weeks left. So, despite my acquired fortune, I was willing to endure. Very mature for a multi-millionaire.

And yes, I'd already decided that I was going to bequeath you each a beach condo in Hawaii. Yes, you!

On a different note, BYU dominated Flordia today and is advancing to the second round! Go BYU!

Awaiting the weekend...

As students who strategically schedule our classes, we're lucky enough to start our weekends on Friday :)

Ideas for this weekend:

The $1 theatre--The Blind Side. I've been dying to see this...
Michael Jackson tribute show in Springville
Make lasagna with the yummy recipe that I found and an Oreo pie
Disney on Ice (I snagged free tickets at work)
Finish season 2 of Prison Break

What are your plans for the weekend?

Serendipity Photobooth

You should have seen our living room this weekend. It has been transformed into a workshop. Lumber, 9 foot panels, saw dust, and screws are scattered everywhere. I feel terrible for the couple living below us.


We are building a
photo booth. We booked our first wedding reception, and we're sooo excited to be legitimate "wedding crashers."

Dalaney soldering the wires to our illuminated retro arcade buttons.

The finished product:
Yes, be impressed. My masculine husband built this incredible booth with his bare hands. It is sooo much fun! You can learn more about our photobooth at

P.S. Yes, this is our living room. And no, besides our photobooth, there is nothing in our living room/dance floor.

P.P.S. I promise to post CLEAN, CUTE apartment pictures this week.

Honeymoon Holiday

Our home for a week: the beloved Norwegian Pearl.

After two days of rain, we finally found sunshine in St. Thomas. And we got BURNT!
We enjoyed jet skis, dance parties, beach barbecues, and snorkeling across the Caribbean. In the Dominican Republic, just a day before the earthquake. Standing in front of the trash piles that line the city streets.

Hiking in the Dominican jungles to a waterfall. Our "tour guide" gave us giant umbrella leaves to block the rain.

Tortola, British Virgin Islands. The water was crystal clear and the sky pristine!
