This weekend some of Josh's really good friends were in town from Ohio! The Sharples are kind of like Josh's second family! So you can guess they were just as excited for the Ohio State vs. Penn State game as Josh was. We thought we were going to have to record the game and just hang out with them during the day but we found out there was a little bit of a mix up with the time of Thriller so we were able to watch the game with some true Buckeye fans! It was a good night for the boys-- Ohio State played really well and beat Penn State 37 to 17!! Not only was it fun for Josh to have them here but it was fun to meet them. I had heard all about the Sharples and they were just as great as they were described! Brother Sharples thought me a new game that I think everyone needs to learn to play, it's called Euker! It's a strategy game that I think everyone would have fun with, and if you already know how to play let us know because were in!


So as tradition we went to thriller in Salt Lake. This year we went with Tate, Jules, Shannon, Jaclyn, Bryson, John and Emma. It was a lot of fun except the lady on the phone told me it started at 2:30 and it really started at 2:00- so we missed some of our favorite dances and I don't think John and Emma were able to get the full effect and needless to say they didn't like it(not that we really thought John would like it, but Emma did pull the we have been married for 2 years card and have never done this so he went). I still think it will we an annual tradition just next time I'll double check the time, so we don't miss some of our favorite parts!

So the other day Christy, Morgan and Kaden and I all went to Thai Pan for some Christmas decorations! Christy was trying to help me find what things I thought I liked best so we could put together a tree. We finally figured it our so we started finding stuff for the tree! Well lets just say Kaden and Morgan had it at this point but all we needed was like ten more minutes. So I grabbed my camera out of my purse and told them to take as many pictures as they could, and it was perfect because it lasted just long enough to get the stuff. So the other day I was going through my pictures and found the ones they had taken! I couldn't stop laughing so i had to make a montage out of it! Some of the pictures are upside down- this is how they were taken. I think they really liked the candycanes- oh and don't mind the random people walking in the store!


I was on my way to work the other morning and i thought this was so funny! I passed the truck and then slowed way down so I could take a picture- I'm sure the guy thought I was nuts. But I thought it was funny because I don't think I have ever seen a truck so full of stuff and so wide!!- I swear at least one of those things fell off before he got to where he was going.

You Are a Yellow Crayon
Your world is colored with happy, warm, fun colors. You have a thoughtful and wise way about you. Some people might even consider you a genius. Charming and eloquent, you are able to get people to do things your way. While you seem spontaneous and free wheeling, you are calculating to the extreme. Your color wheel opposite is purple. You both are charismatic leaders, but purple people act like you have no depth.
Not really sure how much this is true but i saw Shannon posted her color so i thought it would be fun! So yellow it is!!

This weekend Sandra came into town, with her boyfriend, Tyler! All Sandra wanted to do was show Tyler and do some of things we always did while she lived here. So like tradition we decided to go sit in Josh's section at Olive Garden. This week Josh was asked to work in the kitchen as a CA for those of you that know that that means and you can imagine how fast he took that offer- he didn't have to talk to customers and he got off first. So we sat in one of friends section and he came out to visit every once in a while. Sandra will be here for the weekend but its so much fun to have her here. It's always fun to reminisce and then to make new memories.
Just like the old times!
He looks so busy, huh? I think he fits in just perfectly! Sandra and Tyler

Loopy trying to make rice crispy treats- it got a little sticky!

Tagged by Christy What I was doing 10 years ago... This is so weird to think, but I was in seventh grade at First Colony Middle School! I was the only one at the school because John was already in high school and Loopy was still in Elementary. At this time was worried about basketball and volleyball- the 2 sports i played in middle school. I think the most of my worries at this time was making sure I got up early enough so dad could take me to school instead of having to ride the bus. That and i was going through a big awkward stage- we have the pictures to prove it! What I was doing 5 years ago... I had come up to Utah to work and go to school. By this time I had been working at Olive Garden for a few months, and getting ready to start BYU, where I would get my pre-requisites done for dental hygiene school. What I was doing 1 year ago... I was finishing up my last year of dental hygiene school... Close enough to national boards to where I was stressing about it. I think at this time last year Josh and I had been dating for about 8 months. We had both gone to each others parents house and 2 weeks later from a year ago this time, he asked my dad (in the sweet mustangs) if he could marry me. What I was doing yesterday... Watched Ohio State beat Kent State and become ranked #1, and spent too much money with Christy! We bought a few clothes at our new favorite store, Ross, and we went to Tai Pan (yes mom a decorating store), and I got decorations for our first Christmas together. 5 places I'd rather be... last year of Josh's law school Hawaii with the whole family a trip with Josh a beach 5 snacks/treats I love... same on G's chocolate cake! ice cream brownie Sunday great wall of china peach smoothie at taco amigo(that was easy, only 5) What I would do with 100 million dollars... I agree with Emma- Private jet to see family whenever Have a dream house, and a house for everyone in the family to live close by definitely help our parents retire give money to people to pay it forward like Oprah and mom Let us retire and not have to ever worry about money and just play 5 Favorite TV shows... CSI, Law and Order, Alias (even though it went down hill i gave 4 good years to this show), Extreme Make over(I cry every time), What not to Wear- i feel like this show helps me. 5 people to tag... April , Sam, Rachel, Kari, Shannon

Broken Essentials

So on Thursday my blow-dryer went out. I go out of the shower early that morning to blow my hair dry and it would heat up but wouldn't blow. So I went to work with my hair wet and of course this happen in the "winter" when it's cold outside. So today I figured it had been long enough, so i took my shower and used the fan! A little cold but I thought it was a good idea!

Conference Surgery

For some of you this may not be pretty to look at, but i know of a few of you that will be examining each picture. Josh's toe nails have been bruised ever since the half marathon. Saturday night when the boys were at priesthood- Emma, Suz, G, Christy and I were talking about every one's toe nails from the race. Emma finally pulled hers off and Suz was half way tempted until, G with disgust told her she couldn't. After telling Josh about how Emma pulled hers off Sunday afternoon he was sick of looking at them, so he finally gave me the go ahead to try and take them off. Most of the toe is dead but there is too much that was attached- so we didn't get them off, and as you can see we tried everything. Don't worry we will keep you updated! It's not really that bad but for those that have weaker stomachs you might not want to scroll down!

I told you we tried everything- this is how determined he was!

So I went into Olive Garden with some friends today, and my manager came up to me and told me I was terminated on Sunday. Which means I am no longer in the system, so 3 years 2 months and seven days of serving other people are all over! I felt like when she was telling me, she thought I would be sad, and I will admit I am a little for the sole reason that i can't go in if I wanted to. Not that i don't think i would have ever gone in but the fact that i can't is weird. But I will say it is so nice to say I'm done with that place! So I guess it's time to throw away all the shirts, pants, shoes, and socks that have the permanent Olive Garden smell and stain to them, and finally be done with that place.
