HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!

Time sure does fly! I can't believe Halloween is already this Saturday!!! Seems like it's just the beginning of October. Steve and I haven't even decided on our Halloween costumes this year...I just LOVE the Holidays! I love this time of year.

Steve is SOOO cute he surprised me with these pretty little babies...what a great way to start off the week!

This last weekend was really fun. On Friday Steve and I went to Austin's (Steve's cousin) last football game, and spent time with the family. The Ford family is awesome, everyone is so supportive. All of the cousins, uncles, aunts and grandma and grandpa came to watch him play.
I'm not really a football fan, but I had a lot of fun supporting Austin and spending time with everyone. After the game Steve and I went to FROGURT with mom and dad Ford,Whit and Jason and Shannon. Frogurt is DELICIOUS! I LOVE frozen yogurt, and you can put as much topping that you want it!!

On Saturday, Steve had a test that he had to take. So, he was gone for the majority of the day. I got all the regular house work done, and then I was able to sew. I'm helping one of my good friends Carrie make baby leggings. They are turning out super cute. Her little guy is going to be a pirate this year for Halloween, and so we made him black and white leggings.
Anyway, my day was pretty relaxing, and then my sister Kartier invited Steve and I to go over to her house and watch the BYU game and have dinner.
The dinner was Deli sh! The game was pretty bad...Steve was disappointed. Kart and I went and rented "The Proposal" from redbox and had fun talking. After the game, we all watched the Proposal. It was a really fun night!

Sunday we went over to my brother Kody's house. Jade made us a really good dinner, and then we all carved pumpkins! :) We always have such a good time with these two, and with Lil' man Carson. Steve and I are super blessed to have such awesome familes, on both sides.

Work has been pretty awesome. I'm really happy that my company has been doing little incentives. It gets really hard some days working at a desk all day taking call after call. I mean, I'm SUPER grateful that I have a great job, that pays well and has great benefits, but it gets pretty monotonous. (I'm sure all jobs get that way right?)

This week they are doing a movie on the clock. How cool is that? Get paid to watch a movie! Everyone who hit there stats for a month is able to see "A nightmare before Christmas." I can't wait!! I LOVE watching movies.

They also did a contest where everyone at work nominates a Customer service King and Queen. I was nominated as queen! he he! I won a crown and some money! woot woot!

We also have been doing guessing games...for example: Everyone brought pictures of themselves as a baby, and then we guess who the baby is, if you get them right you win a prize! It's really fun to see what people looked like as a baby! We also did a smile guessing game, they took our picture of just our smile and we had to guess who it was.

Besides work...

Steve has been super busy with lots of school work and studying for exams. He's such a great husband. He does so much for me and I'm so grateful for him.

We've also been going to whit's volleyball games. I LOVE watching volleyball. Other than that, we have been taking it easy and spending time with one another.

We celebrated my cute mom's birthday this weekend. It was a lot of fun to get together with all my brothers and sisters (minus Kris). We wish he could of came, but he was still in Vegas after seeing the Football game with some friends.

We had a nice dinner, and enjoyed every one's company. Steve and I made desert for my mom. She LOVES pie. So, instead of making her a birthday cake we made her PIE POPS. My mom loves PUMPKIN, so we made half pumpkin and half Raspberry. They were a total hit. They are super easy to make too. I found them at BAKERELLA.Com

The guys all watched football, and all the girls in the fam hung out. I gave my mom a manicure for her birthday. :) Kart and KJ talked with us while I was giving her one.

Also this weekend,Steve and I hung out with Todd and Larissa. We had them over for dinner and then we went to the movies and saw "Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs." It was a really cute movie. Then we went back to there place and hung out. They have the CUTEST dog named POLO.

We had a fun weekend, and I'm super grateful for my cute mom. I feel very blessed to have such a fun, funny, caring, and thoughtful mom. I SURE LOVE YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Conference weekend was a lot of fun. We went to the Ford's cabin, like we do every conference and spend time with the fam. We play games, eat great food, and watched conference! I really loved conference. It always goes by way too fast.
I really loved when President Monson spoke on service. I thought it was awesome how he received so many cards and my favorite, was the "warm fuzzy" jar. How cute is that? I love how conference always brings me up, and makes me want to do better.
I need to do more service.

Steve taught me and my sis in law how to drive a stick-shift!! Ya ya! I'm so excited! Our Honda isn't automatic, and so I can only drive my truck, which is fine...but how nice is it going to be when I can go grocery shopping and take the civic and not pile all the grocery's on me! So excited about that!! Steve tried teaching me when we were first married, and I got too frustrated. I love driving the civic. It's a lot more fun, but I'm not willing to drive it in the snow (when that comes). Too scary.

I'm still not prego. Which is disappointing, I wish that I was. Hopefully soon.........

Steve and I bought our first big purchase!! New couches! I was seriously stressing over it. It's not like we didn't have the money for it, but it's a big purchase for us, and I just stress..it's how I am. I absolutely love the new couches, they are a GREAT upgrade from our last. I can't complain though, our last couches were given to us.

I'm already tired of the cold. I HATE the cold weather. I LOVE the Holidays though.

I'm really bummed that I have to work Friday's this month. I loved my 4-10 days. Steve has Friday's off now too. I loved having a long weekend with him.

I finished reading Twilight and New Moon again. I'm SOOO excited for the new movie! Can November come fast enough?
