I wonder who it is

Fortune cookie from Pei Wei tonight reads,
"One who admires you greatly is hidden before your eyes."
I really hope this person wasn't hidden. I'd be ok with knowing who admires me greatly.

Ha-rrry Pott-ar (that's Harry Potter with an English accent)

I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows last night and right now I feel like I got hit by a train.

4 hours of sleep is NOT ENOUGH. I don't know how people with babies do it.

Gotta catch up on my sleep before I take off for Texas tomorrow. I don't want to end up splattered on the side of the road because I fell asleep at the wheel.

Anyway, back to Harry: There are some weird people in that fan base. Obnoxious almost. You don't have to clap because the movie is starting. I already knew that you're excited about the movie, hence you being at the midnight showing. I feel bad for those people that got tickets to the showings at 3 AM. Really? 3 AM? If you didn't get tickets for the midnight showing, what's the point? Might as well wait until the next day.

I hope I never become that obsessed with something.

I can save you

Being CPR certified is painful. Those dummies are hard and it kills the heels of my hands. They're bruised now, no big. At least now I can save your life. So yeah, pass out in front of me. I dare you.

Actually please don't, just because I know CPR doesn't mean I ever want to use it.
Yep. I can do it all.

what the.....

I want to meet the person that thought creating this was a good idea.

And then I would like to meet a person who would think it's a good idea/investment to pay $120 for this thing.

I would laugh in their face.

I want you

I finally went inside the Manti temple today to do baptisms. Another Utah temple to cross off the list.

Provo - check
Mt. Timpanogos - check
Jordan River - check
Salt Lake - check
Bountiful - check

I went to the open houses for Draper and

Oquirrh Mountain

but I need to actually do baptisms there. Still on the to do list.

On our drive down Zoe, my car, finally hit 1000 miles. The town of Fairview will always hold a special place in my heart (not really).

Let's take a moment to commemorate this event....and having gone to the Manti temple of course.

It really isn't fair for anyone to be this attractive.

I will take one.
Please and thank you.

Count your many blessings

I've never been one to have a problem paying tithing. It's always been one of the easiest things for me to do. Just write out a check as soon as I got paid, easy enough. But lately, I've got to admit I've been thinking more about it. Never enough to not pay it, but the thought of what I could pay off with it has crossed my mind.

Ever since buying a new car I've been a little stressed about money. Paying off school loans, car loans, credit cards for fixing my last car, taking trips out to Texas to see my family. It was all adding up in my head.

So I'm sitting at work today and decided to check my bank account, I look at the total in my checking account and notice it's quite larger than I knew was supposed to be in there. I click on it to view my transactions and I see a deposit by the US Treasury for hundreds of dollars.

Hallelujah! I have the money I need to drive out to Texas and not be stressed about it. I had told my mom I would be coming home for Thanksgiving and that I would be bringing Andrea. She was so happy, I was determined to make it work even if I didn't have the money upfront for the trip.

And this is where I count my blessings. Being a full tithe payer has always been a huge blessing in my life. The Lord always provides, always.

City Deals

I feel like I'd heard about this website before but never actually looked into it. It's kind of amazing. I got $10 gift certificates for Pizza Pie Cafe for $5 each. Um please and thank you. Now I hope I actually get my certificates and if I don't, I know who to track down. The guy I went on a date with this past weekend works there and he also happens to be friends with my sister's boyfriend. You should totally look into it, and if you do use the link below :)

dreams come true?

"So maybe it's the whole bad-a cop thing. Yes that could be it. A cop in a suit. Which makes him a detective, which makes him even more attractive.

Sometimes I wish TV shows were real life. Then I could move to LA, meet him, fall in love, and marry him."

Remember the above quote from my last post? Last night I met what would be the equivalent of the character in real life.

Andrea wanted me to meet Dylan so he set me up on a blind date with his friend so that we could all go on a group date. We had this date last night in which we went to Tsunami up in South Jordan. It's a sushi place and yes I finally ate sushi. Not horrible, but not my favorite thing in the world.

So we're sitting there talking and I find out that the boy I was with wants to be a cop, a detective. On the inside I got all excited. On the outside I kept it cool. If I had met this kid 2 years ago I would have immediately fallen in love with him. It's really too bad that he just got back from his mission in September.

Why are boys so young these days? It's quite disappointing.

good morning to me!

I came across this new show....Law and Order: Los Angeles......which I guess isn't really new since there's already a Law and Order, Law and Order: SVU, Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Law and Order: Trial by Jury, Law and Order and your dog......ok that last one is fake but you get the idea right?

So anyway, I came across this show and fell in love with this man
No, not the bald one. Shift your eyes to the right. Yup that one.

Let's look at one of just him........
just for kicks


I don't know why. Maybe it's the tall, dark, and handsome thing?

I don't actually know how tall he is but everyone is taller than me so he fits the tall, dark, and handsome category.

But then again I saw pictures of him out of character and he isn't as attractive.

So maybe it's the whole bad-a cop thing. Yes that could be it. A cop in a suit. Which makes him a detective, which makes him even more attractive.

Sometimes I wish TV shows were real life. Then I could move to LA, meet him, fall in love, and marry him.

Colored sugar water

Mango flavored Kool-Aid is delicious

Try it

Back to the homeland

I will be back in Texas in 3 weeks. First time since coming up to Utah that I'll be home for Thanksgiving.....and it's also the first time that I'll have driven back by myself. Well Andrea will be in the car with me but let's be serious about who will do all the driving.

My parents will have moved into a new house the week before so my vacation will be spent painting and helping with remodeling. I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of excited about it. I'm also excited to go shopping on Black Friday with my mom.
