Day 57

I bought some awesome jam jams during the Black Friday sales. They're satin!!! I've never had satin jammies, and I LOVE them! Tonight was my first night with satin jam jams..... life-changing event. oh and it snowed a lot today. I love it when the snow falls, but I really detest driving in it.

Day 55

It's that time of year... Black Friday! Beckie and I have our annual tradition of going shopping. This year, Wal Mart's movie deals started at midnight! So we braved the crowds and set out. It was the most terrible Black Friday experience I've had. Everyone was packed around the DVDs like sardines. I couldn't see the movies or move my body an inch in any direction, and I was starting to feel a bit of anxiety. I didn't care about the movies anymore. I just wanted to get out of there. After we made our Wal Mart purchases, we had 3 hours to kill before Target opened, so we went home and played Super Mario! We passed 5 levels (1 level twice) only to find out it doesn't save any of your work until you beat the castle. We were a bit upset when we found out. Then we headed off Target for their 4 am opening. We got everything we needed there, including hat/glove combo for my nephew who's sporting them fabulously. We waited in a forever long line for an hour-ish. We got home at 6 am. I talked to my Mom for an hour, who had gotten up to go to work, and then I went to bed at 7 am. I slept until noon, but woke up about every hour due to a text message, a phone call, being hot, and a screaming child... twice. I couldn't sleep anymore. I just had to get up and face the turmoil caused by rambunctious nieces and nephews.

Day 54

I love this holiday! You have an excuse to engorge yourself with all sorts of delicious food! I don't like yams. However, Julienne and Jared made yams that were great! They didn't taste like yams. Instead, they tasted like coconut! ...thanks to the can of coconut milk they dumped in... I also had a piece of peanut butter pie. Oh it was good, but literally, it was JUST peanut butter and cream cheese. WAY too rich. I would have much rather enjoyed putting a dollup of coconut cream pie on my tongue and savoring every bit of that!
It's always a great day even without the food. All the family got together. Gabriel, Chris, and their super cute little boys.. one of which was the first time I got to see him.. came into town for the holiday weekend. I cut my sister's and my niece's hair. We played Just Dance and Super Mario on the Wii. We played the piano. Basically we had an awesome time.
Shout out to Brooke... Happy Birthday!!

Day 53

Ethan had to get his "5-year-old shots" today. On their way back from the Doctor's office, they took a pit-stop to buy Cheez-its. They came home with the Scrabble Cheez-its, and I found a "Q!" Any day that I find a "Q" anything is a happy day. Why don't they have more? When you do find one, it's even a higher quality because all the effort that would have gone into making thousands of that letter all went into the one "Q" that they produced. Yup. That's how it is.

Day 52

Reports said today was going to be a HUGE blizzard. Biggest one Utah's seen... EVER! I had been debating coming home to Sandy today so because of this big storm that was on it's way, I had to make my decision real fast. In my packing haste, I threw a lot more clothes than needed into my bag, I left my phone charger on my shelf, and I forgot to get my turkey out of the freezer!
~Mr. Norbest, I wanted to eat you tomorrow!~
I made it home safely and shortly after, Chris, Gabby, Max, and Morgan made it home. Just in time! It started snowing... a LOT. This ^^^ much. Too bad the snowman in our front yard is kinda dying...

Day 51

My keys went missing! I got home Sunday night and started putting some of my stuff away. I put my sweater back in my sweater box and thought to myself, "Self, you should check to make sure nothing else fell in the box. Nah." Then I shoved it back under my bed. The next morning, I was searching frantically for my keys. I had to go to work! So I grabbed my spare key, ran out the door, and hoped my roommates didn't lock the door!
When I got home, the door was unlocked! I checked EVERYWHERE for my keys! I looked all day in any spot I could think of! Right before FHE, I figured the one place I hadn't looked was in my sweater box. I pulled it out, and found my keys!!!! I should have checked there in the first place!

Day 50

I woke up this morning to a snow covered world. I got a ride to church and didn't have to use my car until later when I went to go Visiting Teaching. I was running a little late and had to scrape my car. My scraper is in my trunk somewhere.... I think. My trunk doesn't have a light in it, so I couldn't find it. I COULD find my windshield wiper blade (in it's carton waiting for someone to replace it for me), and so I used my windshield wiper carton to scrape the ice off my car. Didn't work too well. Good thing my defroster works!!

Day 49

Christmas is an awesome time of the year. I love Christmas! I love Christmas decorations! I love Christmas decorations that you make yourself! I made this wreath last year and it's great. Last year for Christmas decor, I also had a TON of ornaments hanging from the ceiling. I think all the pictures of how cool it was were deleted though!
I went on a super fun date tonight where we bought Christmas decorations to decorate Peter, Paul, Jeff, and Ben's apartment, and we made delicious pies. Peter and I were in charge of the ceiling and lights. First off, don't buy Christmas lights from Dollar Tree. They're not very long. They also might give you white lights when the box says "multi." Oh and you may also get a strand that just doesn't work.
We also bought ornaments to hang from their ceiling! And it's mind-blowing. Naturally we have a green "O" for the Oregon Ducks. Their apartment is now on the Parade of Apartments list for Christmas decor. Yup. We're that good.

Day 48

I was so tired today. After 3.5 hours of sleep, I was barely hanging on. Work was surprisingly slow, so I offered to go home early if they needed any volunteers. They had me do call-outs instead! Ugh. I just wanted to go home and sleep, but they wouldn't let me! When I got home from work, I turned the TV on to relax and snooze. Lo and behold.... the Snorks were on!!!! I haven't seen this show forever and no one I talk to has ever heard of it! This definitely made my day!

Day 47

Harry Potter 7-Deathly Hallows-Part 1!!!!!!
Midnight showing! Wha-what??
We had an absolutely fabulous Harry Potter group! We had lots of treats! Elyse brought her interactive Mr. Potato Head lunch box full of goodies! We watched a Jedi duel a member of the Slytherin House, and then the movie began. The movie was great, but now we have to wait for part 2!

Day 46

Angela and I went to The Patroni's Semi-Final Ultimate Frisbee game. The team they played were animals! and we're pretty sure the frisbee was lined with magnets.... as were their hands! Because Angela and I are the coolest people ever, we bought their favorite Little Debbie treats and paid the fellas a visit after their game. Wow they're lucky to have friends like us!

Day 45

Had the day off of work! Nice. Surprisingly, I was running around doing a lot of stuff. I did all my laundry and washed my sheets. I didn't have time to make my bed, but I had to leave! I went to Julienne's bridal shower and had a festive little time. It took me an hour to drive home, so I had a lot of time to sit and think. I thought about lots of stuff. I thought about how I was real tired and still had to make my bed. I got home, and saw this beautiful sight! Nice, tightly made bed. Thanks Bed Fairy!

Day 44

I was just buying nailpolish with K-Ro and Moe when my manager called me. "You've been such a good employee, we just wanna reward you and let you know you're appreciated. We have 4 tickets to the Jazz game tonight. Do you wanna go and bring 3 of your friends?"
"Uh, ya!"
Alicia and I were set to go to the game, but I had 2 more tickets! So, Jake and Brian came with us! $47/ticket, Free parking, first Jazz game: Priceless.

Watched this Sunday night... "Ska-doosh."

Day 42

Drove out to Salt Lake with my Mama. We went to a little boutique and talked with the sweetest gay guys who were throwing out compliments to me. I loved it! We went to a fashion show that Julienne was in. We went to Panda Express. I got the Kobari Beef, which was super delicious, but there were mushroom halves in it. I tried a mushroom. I popped it in, took a couple chews, and promptly spit it out. Still don't like the mushrooms.

Day 41

"Sink Me!"
Went to another Patroni ultimate frisbee game. It was so cold I literally couldn't feel my toes. I was even wearing 2 pairs of socks! I made me some delicious Pumpkin Spice hot cocoa and ran over to watch Scarlet Pimpernel. On the way over, I was running across the street, and it spilled :( What was left in the cup was delicious though! Scarlet Pimpernel: great stuff... except I totally fell asleep at one point and twitched awake! awesome.

Day 40

Another fabulous day off work! Started the morning off by going running with Kalyn. After we got ready, we went out to buy my rockin' nailpolishes! They're super sparkly. My favorite, that is on my fingernails right now, is called Sparklicious. On my toes, is Extra-va-vaganza! After our outing, we went up to campus, and look what we found in the children's section at the library! Is he dead? No. He's just sleeping, but I was laughing soo hard when we stumbled across this. Come on kid... at least find a comfortable couch or chair! The floor?? Amateur.

Day 39

Quite frankly, this was not a super exciting day. I made it to K-Ro's facebook status though! Awesome.
The quote is, "I love water. You know what else I love? Chocolate. You know what else I love? Sparkles. All kinds. You know what else I love? Boys. No, MEN."
hmm... I think I like me.

Day 38

Wow I had a great day!! I woke up early and went for a run with Kalyn and Catherine. I don't know how, but a bird pooped on my leg! I thought it was a grape and tried to flick it off. It stuck to my finger.... and it was disgusting! Then we went out to Ikea to take pictures for a photo scavenger hunt. After we realized it wasn't going to work out how we thought it would, we headed back to Provo. Then I got my hair trimmed and it's amazing. You can't tell I got it cut, but it feels so much more healthy! I had dinner group, which was an amazing ham and potato soup. I went to The Patroni ultimate frisbee game, which they won! and then I went and delivered Toy Story shaped Chicken Noodle Soup and these awesome Toy Story sugar cookies that I made to Matt. You will see Rex, Lotso, a cowboy hat, cowboy boots, and a star....which I was going to turn into a Sheriff badge, but that did not go so well. All in all..... best day off I've had in a while!

Day 37

On Sundays, I listen to FM100.. the Sunday music station. I got in my car this morning to drive to work and the radio was still on FM100. It was not Soft Sunday Sounds that greeted me. It wasn't Soft Hits that rang in my ears. IT WAS CHRISTMAS MUSIC!!! It made me so happy and ready to face the rainy, gloomy day.

Monday, November 8, 2010

Day 36

Fast Sunday is not a day that I am entirely chipper and enthusiastic... especially when we have to cook Ghirardelli brownies for our "Break the Fast" with the ward. The brownies filled my apt with the warm chocolatey aroma, and I just wanted to eat them soo bad!
Sunday, November 7, 2010

Day 35

Saturday! No work today! I went home to Sandy, played the piano, started updating my blog, and played with Cadence. Then Julienne, Jared, and I went shopping. I bought part of my top to wear to their wedding. Later, I went to a white trash party with them. No I'm not really pregnant.... it's just a pillow. and yes. that's blue eyeshadow. A girl can never get enough blue eyeshadow!

Day 34

David's birthday was on Wednesday. We all went out to David and Danielle's place to celebrate tonight. I rode out with Reub, Issa, and their boys. Eian was not happy. He was screaming on our way home. Very loud and shrill. The party was a blast as it always is when you get the Perry's together! Danielle found this fabulous idea of making confetti eggs, giving a birthday wish to David, and smashing the confetti egg on his head! It was rather fun!

Day 33

I didn't take a picture because my internet wasn't working....still. So I just saw this picture in my albums and it makes me laugh. Real hard. Sometimes I feel like this little boy in the picture. No matter how hard you try to dodge the crap in life, it still hits you right on the head. HAHA! But this picture just rocks!
Thursday, November 4, 2010

Day 32

Awesome day. Worked for 3 hours. Went shopping with Kacey and had an absolutely awesome time! First of all, I miss Kacey. Secondly, we went shopping.. everywhere. I bought toy story 1 and 3, a bunch of Halloween underwears that are sparkly AND glow in the dark, and tried on these amazingly creepy masks. No I did not purchase. We ate at Costa Vida.. for my first time, stopped in at Joe's birthday party, watched The Patroni win their frisbee game, and chilled with Kacey some more. I haven't laughed as hard as I did with Kacey for a long time. That was much needed.

Day 31

Tashie had yet another dance performance. That little ham can dance! She's such a doll, and it's always fun to go watch her. It's also fun to go with Peter because he brings oatmeal cream pies for snackies!
Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Day 30

It's dinner group day again! Time to cook for lotso peeps! I made honey-lime chicken enchiladas. Delicious? Yes. My future husband is one lucky guy because I'm a freaking awesome cook! Except that I was too lazy to clean out the food chilling under the burner. So that slight coloring you see under the pot is not the burner. It's a flame! I think it may have been a piece of pasta under there? One may never know.

Day 29

It's Halloween!!! I went home for our Halloween dinner and party! First off, I walked in to see my cute dad learning to play the piano! Then all the kids came over and I pulled out my costume bag. We all got dressed up and the party and chaos began!

Day 28

Apparently I also got a battle wound on my knee from the dance party. I remember dancing with someone and hitting my knee. I remember thinking, "Wow that kinda hurt my knee." I kept dancing my heart away. Later, I noticed a small bruise... by small I mean the size of my whole knee-cap... and it progressively got bigger and darker daily.
Saturday, October 30, 2010

Day 27

It was our ward/stake Halloween party. We had a giant dance party. A couple of my roommates and I dressed up as the Pink Ladies. I looked great. I danced, partied, and rocked the high heels... although I suffered a slight battle wound on my feet.

Day 26

I'm going to the midnight showing of Harry Potter. This is the first time I'm dressing up in full costume for a midnight showing, and I'm dressing up as Ginny Weasley! ..except a hotter version..

Day 25

It snowed a lot. I don't mind waking up to snow when it's not frozen to my car, and when it's not covering the roads. It's just so pretty.
Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Day 24

The first REAL snow-fall of the year. The snowflakes were HUGE! and I loved it :)
Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Day 23

I stole this picture from K-Ro's facebook and blog, but I had no other option! We had the most fun FHE. We played Quidditch! That's right.... quidditch. My team won of course, because we're awesome. This picture is after the game. We used hula-hoops for the goals, so we had to get the most use out of them naturally. I haven't hula-hooped in years, and I need a little practice.
Monday, October 25, 2010

Day 22

This actually occurred Saturday, but I've been slacking on my blog because I haven't had the interntet. So Saturday night, I went on a date to the BYU opera, The Magic Flute. It was awesome. I don't know if I like all operas, but I liked this one. I had a great night that ended with delicious coconut and raspberry frozen yogurt topped with walnuts. Yum...
Sunday, October 24, 2010

Day 21

Surprise! Krystal, Dylan, and Evan flew to Idaho and had a few hour layover in SLC! I was super excited to get to see them, and I'm positive I'm still Evan's favorite :) Unfortunately, all of us were here for only about 30 minutes because I had to leave early to go to an opera. I didn't get any pictures with them though... ARGH!
