I can’t believe it’s been so long since our last OurVie post….surry. We have had kind of a crazy summer with me being in California for a couple months with my family, Cees being in southern Utah for his geology field study, me being in Thailand for a couple months, and then me AND Cees being in Thailand haha (I know it’s crazy we finally got to be together for once). Then in September we started our final semester back in Provo. All the while, trusty Vie has been hanging out in front of our vacant house. I’m sure the upstairs neighbors have really enjoyed that darling view.
This semester is our last hurrah in Provo so we decided to keep our schedules pretty open. With an open schedule we can play with our friends, work on OurVie, and enjoy Utah in all it’s Utahy glory.
Anyways, back to Vie. I’m purposely keeping you all on your toes about the interior of Vie, because it’s awesome, but it’s not quiiiite finished yet. But stay tuned because the interior unveiling will happen soon! But I’ll give you a little sneak peak into some of the cool details we have been working on.
Cees being the swiper that he is, got a bunch of cool old topographic maps that BYU Geology dept. was going to toss. So we decided to put them up on the ceiling of Vie.
And can I just say how grateful we are to all of our amazing friends and family members who have been so supportive and so helpful in making Vie so majestic. We have some crafty, skilled, homies and seriously we couldn’t do it without you. It takes a village!
A shoutout to Sterling Hofman for making the sickest seat covers for our driver and co-piolet seats! We LOVE them! Sterling is an amazing sewer/seamstress? Haha I don’t know. But we love your Ster!
Haha Cees looks really scary, but really happy about these seat covers.
Also, everyone needs to go check out Sterling’s Silver shop right now. He can take any coin and turn it into the coolest coin ring. You will be so rad wearing these rings. Cees and I both have Russian ruble rings and we love them.
Now onto the next topic. Succulents. I love succulents. Unfortunately the succulents I buy at the store are the suckiest succulents ever and die in two seconds. Or let’s be real, maybe they shrivel up because we live in a dark basement cave and I forget to water them, but isn’t that the POINT?! They are supposed to be the fool-proof variety of all vegetation for plant killers like me!
So, whilst in southern Utah, Cees harvested some real succulents to take with us on OurVie trip. However, he accidentally left them trapped inside Vie and when we discovered them 4 months later they were………completely fine.
Finally, this week Cees installed the much anticipated SOLAR PANELS! We are SO pumped that we have solar power and we can pretty much live off the grid. In the next post Cees will take you through the solar panel process.
