November 7th- The Day of Much Happinness

Today I received some AMAZING news. I met with my advisor to fill out an application to go to school in the Winter of 2012. As we wrote down all of my classes on a graduation plan we both realized that I was going to be done with school in JULY! I seriously cannot tell you how big my smile was, for the following reasons:
1. I thought I was going to be done with school in December
2. This is my last cold season in Rexburg
3. I will be graduating at the end of July, aka the most beautiful time of the year in Rexburg!
4. It is less than ONE year away

November 7th was not only great because of that. I usually forget important dates, but I remembered that November 7th of 2008 was the day that Jack asked me to marry him. It has been 3 years. CRAZY! I will save this story for another time. It is GOOD!



All Hallows' Eve

Childless couples in Rexburg usually have nothing besides a ward activity to do for Halloween. So I decided to do something about it. A week ago, we had a lovely All Hallows' Eve banquet with a couple of friends. The menu involved Bread Bowls, Salad, Shrimp and Corn Chowder and delicious desert made by my R2D2 friend Nicole. It was so much fun!

Nicole and Eric as R2D2 and Luke Skywalker, Ashley and Mark as the hot and rebellious Grease couple, Nathalie and Austin as Cleopatra and Quailman, Jack and I as Team Zissou from the Life Aquatic. I wish I could have invited a lot more couples, but our apartment is pretty small. 

I had so much fun putting this together. Improvised banquet table and some decor. Also the cutest caramelized apple bites made by Nicole in the pictures above. Delicious!

Can't wait for Halloween next year. I want to make this a tradition. I already have some costume ideas for next year.

How was your Halloween? Did you dress up? What was your costume?

Remember Remember the 5th of November

Quick update.

Jack's band, Old Money, sadly had to split up since two of the members graduated and one moved away.

Well, after gathering some talented young men. They were able to get a new band going. With a new name. No, not New Money, they are actually called Seminole Roots.

This weekend they are going to be playing their first official show together, and not only that, they will be playing with super talented, cool band Desert Noises and one that I have not listened to yet Lake Island.

Here is a poster I put together for the show.

Come come come. Come give me a hug, have a pie shake at Sammy's and enjoy some good music. AND last but not least, this show is a charity show; for every shake you buy $1 dollar will be donated to New Eyes for the Needy.



cat lover

I was once upon a time a cat hater. And don't you lie to me, I bet you are one too. Did you know that 8 out of 10 people hate cats? And 4 out of those eight people are haters due to being allergic to cats and the other 4 because of Lucifer from Cinderella? ( I just made all of this up, so don't quote me).

But I do believe that those two, truly were the reasons why I hated cats. Cat sitting Lili for 6 months made me realize that the reason why people usually hate cats (their personalities) is the reason why I love them (at least most of them). Well, let me introduce you to this little guy, and you might just change your mind:


Oliver is the cutest thing you will ever meet. My parents found him in their backyard and we have all fallen in love.

Don't worry, this blog won't turn into a cat blog. But since I don't have any kids I feel like I should/can brag about our first pet.

What about you? Are you a cat hater, or lover?




This is me trying to do homework as we speak.
Oh! This little guy? I will introduce him to you in my next post. ;) This was just too funny to pass up. Let's just say that he is very fond of my hair and earrings.
