Blog overload, but I just have somethings I wanted to say and some things to catch up on... Here are some of the happenings in my life. (in no particular order!)

Tomorrow is the day! Really, who is not excited about this movie? I can't wait! I am not going to a midnight showing, I have to be a responsible adult and I have school tomorrow so that would not be a very good idea! But tomorrow night at 5:45 pm I will be enjoying it. I saw Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson this morning on the Today show and I have to say, I was not very impressed by them. They were both pretty lame (I am sure that will offend people) but I just did not love them. I am just keeping my fingers crossed the movie is half way as good as the book.

Saturday is the day too! It is here, the BYU vs. Utah game! I am pretty excited about this! I sure hope Utah wins. Undefeated is awesome, a place in the conference is awesome, bowl game in Vegas (hopefully) is awesome! They really need to win! GO UTES!!!

I love the temple. I like to go there. I like to be there. I try to go often. This morning I went with my dad and the Young Men and Young Women in my home ward. It was neat to have my dad baptise me. Usually when I go it is just a temple worker that will do the baptising, but it was a nice change to have my dad there. He is great!

I love this CD! I love the Love Story song, but there are a ton of other good ones too! I wasn't sure if I should buy it, but I am glad I did! I heard on the radio this morning that it is doing really well in sales too. For sure a good purchase.

I love all things pumpkin! Pie, muffins, bagels, ice cream...This is the delicious pumpkin cheesecake I had this week at the Cheesecake Factory. A bunch of friends went there to celebrate Jesse Merkley's birthday. It was fun! Happy Birthday Jesse! Too bad I only took pictures of the food, not the people! Oh well, next time!

This is Shelby. I love her. Me, Sophie, Amanda and Shelby had a lunch date last week. It was so much fun! I love when we get together! It is always fun! We are planning on doing it at least monthly. I am glad!

After lunch we went to Sophs parents house to look at her wedding pictures. They were GORGEOUS! I loved them! Soph and Isaac looked amazing! Seriously, some of their pictures could be in magazines! We hung out there pretty much the rest of the afternoon. It was a fun day! Thanks girls!

Sophie's wedding photographer, Sy Snarr (who is amazing) gave her this picture of a cute little Italian man for a wedding gift! How precious is that?! Makes me wish I was there. (Actually I wish that pretty much everyday!)

Shopping in Park City. What more needs to be said!? Actually, 2 things...this is not ALL my stuff and, if you have not been to Park City lately you should go. They have 2 great new outlets that I love, J.Crew and Aldo. Amazing!

School is almost over! I have one day next week and then off for Thanksgiving. Then I only have 2 weeks left! I have 100 things to do between now and then, but I am excited for a little break. Then January 5th it will all start again! I am mostly excited about being done with my drafting class. Let's just hope I pass so I don't have to take it again!

Clark Time

I know what many of you are thinking with that title...but don't worry!
I saw a commercial last night with Chevy Chase in it and it made me so excited to watch this little movie. I love Clark Griswald!
Yes, I agree, it is a little bit raunchy, but for sure one of my favorite holiday movies!
Let's have a movie night and watch it!

Can't wait for Christmas time!

I love to make things.

All kinds of things...scrapbooks, journals, cookies, bread, color boards, cupcakes, dinners, parties, photographs...anything I can just do with no limits I love.

Suzi Bates, the creative mind behind my favorite creative company Just Be used an inspiring quote that I fell in love with on the spot...

The dreamers are the saviors of the world....Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage these are the makers of the afterworld, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; with out them, laboring humanity would perish.

-James Allen ' As A Man Thinketh'

I am ready to go make something!
