Going to St George!

Yes, we are going to St. Geezy (as my bro would call it) this weekend! After such a long and difficult week at school, it will be super nice to get away! I'm so excited because my sister Afton and I are going to Twilight Sat. night! We are both BIG fans of the books so we are really looking forward to it! It'll be a girls night out, while Trav, Rory, and Nick stay home. Of course the Utah/BYU game will be on the plans for Sat afternoon...Go Utes! Other than that, maybe a little shopping, some eating, and a whole lot of relaxing! I definitely need it...

Bond...James Bond

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!!

Sports crazy!

How about them Utes! Thursday's night blackout game was so awesome!! So to all you U-hating, fully vested BYU fans: What up now?! Haha I'm just was a great game and Rory and I can't wait for the BIG rival game!!

Friday night, we went with Isaak and Beth to the Grizzles Hockey game! It was another amazing win!! All game it was 2-0 Ontario lead. We were about to head out in the 3rd period to beat the traffic, then at about 2 minutes remaining, they scored! With the seconds counting down, we thought it was over. But then with only 15 seconds left they scored again to tie!! Neither team scored in the 4 on 4 overtime...Shootout here we come!! We scored one and our goalie completely shut out Ontario! The crowd was crazy there! Besides the amazing win, the fighting alone was worth the ticket!! There were like 3 different fights! And I mean full-out punching, throw-down fights! It was also Susan Coleman's Breast cancer awareness night so the entire team wore their pink jerseys and the ice was pink!! If you have never been to a's pretty fun and I would recommend it! Just buy the cheapest tickets and go sit where ever you want! We really had a lot of fun!

Saturday, we went to Jonny and Grace's home for Robby Swenson's B-day party! There was yummy food and great conversation! I apologize to Jonny and Grace's neighbors if we were too loud! We are a pretty wild bunch!!

"Because I have been given much, I too must give"

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!

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a fun and exciting Halloween! It is my favorite holiday after Christmas! And it is a VERY close second!! This year our friends Lizzy and Rob Swenson threw a HUGE party Thursday night! It was so crazy and fun!!

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)

On Thursday night, My mom cooked us a yummy Halloween dinner and we carved pumkins! I'm sorry, we are not that great at carving...

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!
