Saturday, I went back up to Midway to spend the day with my sister and mom. We decorated the house and went shopping to the Barn! Besides me catching this stupid cold, it was a great weekend!

Rory and I went with Danny and Annie tonight to see 007 Quantum of Solace! The movie was pretty good! I recommend re-watching Casino Royal before going to see this one. You can't go wrong with James Bond!! Your man will love the action and you will love....MMMMmmm Ladies, you know what I'm talking about!!

I want to share this life changing website/Video/Life style. A while back I saw this commercial on T.V. that brought me to tears (I am a big baby). It reminded me of how lucky Courtney and I have it and that there are more important things in this world than ourselves. It also made me realize how little I do for others. Well the other night I was board and I decide to find that commercial. I ran across one of the best sites on the Internet. I started to read their message and watch the videos and I broke down in tears. That night I made a promise to not always think about my self and to do more service for others. I have always been taught to treat others, as I would like to be treated. Sometimes it's nice to have a reminder when I'm down and fill like my life is so bad, I can go to this site. It puts things into prospective of how good we really have it and how the small things can make a difference in someones life. With all the bad news in the world it’s nice to get an uplifting message. Please watch the video below and go to the website. I promise you, It will lift you up!

We thought we were extra creative this year because we dressed up as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac with golden parachutes strapped to our backs and Obama bucks stuffed in our pockets!! Well, few people actually got it...I guess we are the only ones who watch the news! It was pretty embarrassing when we had to take 10 mins to explain it to the "uninformed"! I think even after that, they still didn't get it...Oh well, we thought is was good! Thanks to the Copingas for the pic! (we forgot our camera)
Rory wanted to wear his Fred Flinstone wig for fun!
Even Big Jake hung around for a bit before heading off to a party! My dad was also there, crackin' jokes over soup and talking politics of course! My sisters would recall his limo joke...oh yes, that came up! Rory had never heard it before, so it was a hit!
My parents' street was packed with trick-or-treaters because the neighbors across the way constructed this little haunted house in their garage. They had a guy with a chainsaw scaring all the kids! It was quite funny! We didn't get home until late but decided, since it was Saturday the next day, that we would rent a scary movie! Rory made us rent Steven King's "The Stand". I had no idea what it was about but dude...I'm probably a wuss but it was freaky! We only have watched half of it (it is about 6 hours long) but so far pretty good story line...maybe I'll read the book if I ever get time away from studying!
Overall, another great Halloween in the books!

With our natural gas civics, compost worm bin, and just recently, purchasing the Harmon's green reusable shopping bags, Rory and I have become quite the eco-friendly couple! Below are some great resources to research how your family can become green! Yes...I know, we are big eco-dorks...

School is tough but I'm managing. Between clinic and class, it is a lot to take in!! This week was especially draining because I was preparing for an exam like crazy!! I think I ended up doing pretty good though...

We also planned a dual B-day party with our friends to celebrate both Rory and Nate's Birthdays! We had all of our friends over, or those who could make it that is... It was such a great day, someone brought up the idea of sitting outside in the backyard. Unfortunately we don't have patio furniture, so we all sat picnic style on a blanket. It was fun to visit and eat the yummy BBQ!
Rory got golf clubs for his present this year! For the past two weeks, we have gone almost every day golfing! I tried a Par 3 at Mick Riley Golf Course and actually did pretty well (or so they told me)!! Now I have become hooked...not very good but we try!!
Happy Birthday Rory!! I love you!
It was fun shopping for all the candles, roses, chocolate covered strawberries...etc. I can't believe how great it turned out!!
It looked a lot better in real life of course...
Luckily, Danny, Annie, and Roy offered their help to decorate! We would not have been able to do it all without them!! Danny and Rory were little pyros!! I was praying that we wouldn't set the whole place on fire!!!
