GO UTES!







So for the big rivalry game, Tyler of course had tickets. My fam who may be the biggest BYU fans alive were getting together to watch, (which I literally couldnt have cared less about) This game has always been a big game with Ty and my family. They are always teasing each other. In fact, I think my dad is the mascot (Cosmo the Cougar). We are always asking him if he is ready to perform at halftime and stuff. I showed up in my Utes stuff just for fun. Masen was in Utes stuff with red hair and I put Konner (since he doesnt have a say) in a blue shirt and used some blue hair gel on the 5 strands of locks that he has! It was a fun time. Utes win. And I'm pretty sure there were tears rolling down their faces.

Twilight? Yes Please!




So I have been thinking about how funny it is that I went to Twilight, and enjoyed it. I was laying in bed at 10:30 pm on premiere night (tickets in my back pocket) trying and hoping for a quick cat nap before the midnight showing... It didnt happen. I was watching the news laughing at all the nerds at the premiere wearing prom dresses! Ha ha. In my fury I hoped to set them on fire for acting in such a manner. We made hilarious jokes about babies breath for updos and to not to forget our wrist corsages. Anyways, my friend Amber had practically rented out a theater, (or bought like 20 tickets whichever was cheaper) and I was amongst the chosen to go! Me and sweet cousin Karah met at the Megaplex madness and went inside! I felt like I was doing something wrong leaving the house at 11 ish (it felt like sneaking out) I got all gussied up for a big night out with the girls. The truth is, I didnt have a car seat on my arm, a diaper bag or puke on my shoulder so I was thrilled. We got our popcorn and drinks and hurried in, it was like the first time ever I had walked in with the lights still on. Weird. So, the previews start and the Harry Potter garbage shows up (the crowd loved it of course) Witches and vampires are still on the same list I guess?? BOO! And someone yells out from the crowd "I love you Harry!" What? I almost stormed out. The show started and I loved it. I have spent my entire life making fun of those reading and watching anything with vampires propaganda and I am now one of them. I used to give my brother so much crap for loving Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and I'm like the next step from them. I cant wait for the next movie, (when that dreamy Jacob shaves his hair) purr... Im a creep I know, but at least I will never give in to Star Wars or other such nonsense because I still hate space.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
















SO THIS YEAR WAS PRETTY FUN. ALOT MORE WORK WITH 2 KIDS. WE HAD 2 COSTUME PARTIES AND THEN HALLOWEEN. I CANT PASS UP A THEME SO I DECIDED THE SIMPSONS WAS A FUN ONE. LOTS OF SPRAY PAINT, YELLOW FACE PAINT AND PLANNING, BUT I THINK IT WORKED OUT OK! I WAS HOMER (AS I HAVE THE CHUBBIER BUILD) AND TY WAS MARGE, MASEN WAS BART AND KONNER WAS MAGGIE (BINKY AND ALL). WE DIDNT HAVE A LISA, SO MAYBE WE'LL RESURRECT THIS COSTUME AGAIN WHEN WE GET A GIRL? (WE DIDNT WIN THE "BEST COSTUME" PRIZE THIS YEAR LIKE WE DID LAST YEAR, WITH THE 'OOMPA LOOMPAS') BUT WE WILL TRY AGAIN NEXT YEAR! AFTER DRESSING UP TWICE I DECIDED WE DIDNT WANT TO DO IT AGAIN, SO MASEN GOT HIS WISH AS SPIDERMAN! KONNER WAS OUR LITTLE PEA POD. WE HAD A GOOD TIME, AND IM SURE GLAD ITS OVER!
