Thanksgiving Week

So maybe I'm jumping the gun with the Christmas background, but I have been feeling the Christmas spirit lately! I can't wait to decorate! I love the week of Thanksgiving! It's just so fun and relaxing. This year we are eating dinner with my family at our house! I'm way excited to have everyone over and join in the cooking festivities for once. I'm so thankful for my family and friends!

Me and my sis, Stacey, look forward to the day after Thanksgiving all year. We just love getting up at 5:00 am and running around to all the sales. We have so much fun together.....we are dorks and that's the best part.

Also we will be getting our Christmas tree and decorating it over the weekend. I just love that! Our Christmas lights are getting put up on our house today too! Yeah! Dallan has big plans this weekend to get started on finishing the theater room in our basement. By Monday night a lot of it will be done! We are hoping to have it fully finished by Christmas. I love this time of year!
I will post pics next time.

November so far!

Can I say that I love Halloween? It sure was a fun one this year. Since we had some conflicts on Halloween, we actually had our Halloween party on November 1st. This is the first time we have had a Halloween party at our house with all our friends, and it turned out sooo fun! We played the donut game, the name game, (our group's personal favorite), ate, and had an amazing time. Everyone's costumes were awesome/hilarious, and I don't think I stopped laughing once all night. I don't know what we did to deserve our group of friends, but I love them all so much its unhealthy! :)

Here is a peek at the costumes this year.....

Us...the sexy hot plug and outlet! (Dall's mom made our costumes! I love her!) Dall always felt the need to do some hip thrusts whenever we took pics. :)

Matt and Martie... 80's Rocker and workout queen

Matt is wearing Martie's pleather leggings. Can't forget the leotard thong either.

Nerdy Dan and Super Shay

Brandon and Annnie were Iceman and the Starburst Berries and Cream guy! (Seriously Annie, most creative costume ever! haha how did you ever think of that!)
She even did the song and dance...."Berries and Cream, Berries and Cream. I'm a little lad who loves Berries and Cream!" hahahaha Love it!

Tyler the ultimate fighter and Karie the ping pong champ!

Dusty and Shannon as Dwight and Angela!

Brad and Bobbi as "Cody and Stacy" (Bobbi even stole some of Cody's real clothes!)

Cody and Stacy as a white trash couple! Love Cody's mullet!

Thanks for a great party guys!

I have been forgetting my camera wherever we go, so I had to steal some pics from Crystal's blog to put on ours. We have been having so much fun with Crystal and Tim on the weekends, and will have to keep hanging out even though football is about over. So, here a few pics from a couple weekends ago when we had dinner at the Arbon's and then went bowling! Woot Woot!

Crystal made us pot roast and it was amazing!

Us Bowling!

Crystals Balls!

Happy Day!

For the past couple of weeks, I have just been spending too much time having fun and have forgotten to post what's been going on! Some really awesome/fun things have been happening so I will have to catch you up. First of all I FINISHED EARNING MY FIRST FREE MARY KAY CAR! Yes that is right. I will be driving a brand new car, that I do not pay the car payment, tax, title or license or insurance for. Wow it's going to be fabulous. I officially finished on Sept. 24th and the company has now ordered my car to be made for me. I will pick it up in December! Yeah! I'm pretty sure I work for the best company in the world. :)

Oh, P.S. I know you are all wondering what car I got......I took the Pontiac G6 (charcoal), but the Cadillac is almost half way done and will be done in November. That means come February I will be rockin that sexy Cadillac CTS and you know you will want a ride! :)

My mom brought me flowers and a cake for finishing my car!

Other fun thing. Dallan is one of the football coaches at Ogden high school and so is Crystal's husband Tim. So therefore, Crystal and I have been having girls' nights out every friday if its an away game, or going to the game if it's home. Last week we went to the game and then out to dinner with our husbands, got icecream and watched a movie at Crystal and Tims. I love hanging out with Crystal every weekend! :)

Ok, Last but not least, my birthday was Monday and I totally got spoiled. I swear we started celebrating last Saturday, and I still don't feel like the celebration has stopped. Everyone is too good to me. Dall's partents took us to the Cheesecake factory for my b-day dinner on Saturday, and it was so much fun. I love them like they are my real parents. Sunday was the party at my family's, which was such a blast. I love them so much! Monday, I went to lunch with Dall and then he sent me on a shopping spree! (Thanks sweetie!) That night we went to the movie Eagle Eye (it's good) with my family. It was such an amazing birthday! Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes and the presents! I feel so lucky!

Me and my Dad with our cake(our birthdays are 4 days apart)

I adore my new sewing machine! Thanks mom and dad!

Jaren thought it would be pretty cool to switch sunglasses and he was right. He also thought it was pretty hilarious that I was wearing his spiderman hat too. :)

Tag! You're it!

The Rules:
• Link the person(s) who tagged you.
• Mention the rules on your blog.
• Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
• Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.
• Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged!

Tiffanie tagged me, so now you all get to know some more about me!

1. I have a bad habit of wanting to do EVERYTHING. I love so many things, it's just hard to choose! I love decorating, exercising, designing, playing the piano, scrapbooking, reading, organizing, working, shopping, hanging out with friends and family, and so much more. I've come to the realization that I can't fit everything in to one day or even one week. I have to just take one thing at a time, but it's hard for me cause it's all so fun!

2. I absolutely love getting to know people. I love hearing about other people's lives and being a part of theirs. I love catching up with people that I haven't seen forever and remembering fun things we did together. I like to stay in touch with people I have known forever, but I love meeting new people too. Luckily I get to do that daily and weekly in my career.

3. I love music, and I want to learn how to play the guitar. Dallan has taught me a little bit a while ago, but I want to get good at it. Dall is really good and we jam out together sometimes....me on the piano and him on the guitar. We both want to get better at playing each other's instrument...me the guitar and him the piano.

4. Traveling is one of my passions. I want to go absolutely everywhere! Luckily, Dallan shares that with me. We usually try to vacation every 3-6 months. Number one on my list is Italy (Rome especially, but pretty much the entire country). I am earning a free trip for us to go there next September. Next on the list would be all of Europe as well as South America (Peru, Brazil, Argentina....)

5. I have the biggest sweet tooth! Oh gosh I could eat treats all day long. It's not a good thing! It's totally a family thing cause my whole family is like that too. My grandma used to keep swedish fish in her dresser drawers in her bedroom, if that tells ya anything. Cookies and cakes are my favorites. Yum.

6. I love getting up early in the morning, but I love staying up late! If it was possible to not sleep, I wouldn't! I have been sacrificing my late nights and getting up at 5 am and I love it so much. I get so much more done, and have more time for fun stuff. It's amazing how much you can get done by 8:00 am!

End of August

Ok, so we did so many fun things in August, and unfortunately I didn't capture all of them with my camera. We went to some really fun family reunions, group dates with friends, our anniversary, and going to the cabin last weekend on Labor day. I'm sad that August is over, but it was an amazing month, and now I guess its fall! I love September though because of the weather, and of course because of my birthday! Here are the few pics (in random order) I have taken over the past few weeks.

Lola has been needing a friend, so we are trying out Chloe for a few weeks. So far, she is such a sweetheart, and perfectly behaved. Dall and I are already getting attached to her, so it might be a done deal.

The newest addition to our family! Miss Chloe.

Jaren LOVES Cars!

Our bedroom still needs a lot...curtains, a rug, some more pics, but the bed is done, and that's the most important part!

Flowers Dall gave my for our anniversary. My fav!
Caught Dall a bit off guard. Still very cute though.

Wow it's been a while!

Geez I have really been slacking in the blog area, but we have been so busy lately! I'm pretty sure that everyone else is in the same boat though so you all know the story. Tomorrow is our 4 year anniversary, and then labor day this weekend, and then Peach Days the next weekend, so there will be many pics to post soon! Until then, just know that we are doing great, and we hope you all are too!

I love this, hearing about memories and reminiscing about good times.
1. Leave one memory that you and I had together, as a comment on my blog. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

We're back!

We are back from Texas, and we had a fabulous time! I'm thankful everyday to work for such a great company that cares about women. It's amazing. So....we did go see the Dark Knight on Saturday and it was very entertaining/scary/disturbing all in one. Pretty awesome to say the least! And....yesterday was Dallan's birthday! He is 26 now! Officially over the hill! ;) I just have to celebrate him on his birthday! He is the best husband and friend that I could ever imagine! He is so thoughtful, patient, and so fun to be with. He is very very talented and SMART! He is a hard worker, but more importantly, a SMART worker. He is the person that I want to spend forever with, and I'm so glad he is mine! Happy Birthday sweetie!

Everything's Bigger in Texas!

We are off to Dallas on Monday for a week of Mary Kay goodness. We are so pumped! Can't wait to go and celebrate the last year, and get trained, fed yummy food and given lots of great presents! We will be back on the 20th just in time for Dallan's 26th Birthday!

Here are some pics of my new dark hair......this is what it was supposed to be last time, but we had to try again.

I heart the Twilight books and Edward Cullen

I just have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse...maybe more than I should have even. I highly recommend those books....but they do come with a warning that you might want to start them when you don't have a lot of other things going on cause you will read them like the dickens. I felt like I totally slacked on everything I was supposed to be doing so that I could keep reading, and stayed up WAY too late every night. So, you should definitely read them if you haven't yet. Oh yeah...and I think I'm in love with Edward. He's hot! Can I get an Amen?

Weekends are fun!

We went to Boondocks (in Draper) last weekend with my family and had so much fun! They have tons of fun stuff there including bumper boats. Just a little warning to all who think they will not get wet while riding them....you are very mistaken! I was DRENCHED after riding them. I probably didn't get fully dry till about midnight! ;) It was tons of fun though, and so fun to be with the whole fam!
