A New Frame

For a while now I've been wanting a picture of the Chicago Temple.   It's where we were married.  I've looked around and couldn't find one I liked.  (Those that get married in the western temples have a lot more options to choose from.  Not fair.)  I put it on my Christmas list but since I couldn't find one did I really think Mickey could?  Well, maybe.  He seems to find a lot more stuff on the web than I can but I didn't get one.  I was going through my scrapbook stuff to weed it out and came across this picture.  I believe we got it when we were married.  We used to have it in a silver frame long ago.  Somehow it had been stored away.  I pulled it out and stuck it in an empty frame and hung it on the wall.  It wasn't grand enough.  I don't know if grand is the right word but I wanted people to notice it.  I was looking at a few home dec things in some stores this week (I could have spent a couple hours in Hobby Lobby) and came across this frame (it's from JoAnn).  I knew I had to get it.  I picked it up today, put the picture in it, and hung it up.  I love the feeling of importance the picture has with it's new frame.  What do you think?

On a side note we continued our Friday tradition of pizza and a movie.  I made home-made.  We all get our own little personal ones because no one likes the same toppings.  This way there's no fighting.  There's always complaining but no fighting.  After dinner we watched G-Force.  I fell asleep about 20 minutes in so I can't tell you how it was.  I did hear a lot of laughing at times.  The reds thought it was hilarious.  Meg said it wasn't as funny to her because she's already seen it.

Oh, I like it! The frame really makes it stand out.



And G-Force was cute, the ending (if your family didn't spoil it for you) will surprise you.

love the frame! It is nice and bold, very cool. I am in the market for some 12x12 white frames, maybe I should look online...
