Too Old for Sleepovers?

I should say not! Is there even such a thing? I love sleepovers and I hope I never feel too old to have a sleepover.

Last Friday night after a fun surprise birthday party for Kristi, I went to see Twilight with two friends from work, Jessica and Danielle. After the movie we had a sleepover at Jessica's CUTE house because her husband was out of town. It was so much fun and it brought back so many memories of my many many sleepovers as a kid.

Here we are at the back of the theatre for Twilight. We barely got three seats together.

Here's Kristi about to blow out her candles. Happy 26th Kristi!

The rest of the weekend was great! Amy is in town from Rexburg so we had lunch together on Saturday and made homemade individual little pizzas. It was a lot of fun. Amy and I made some homemade cards together and then I went home for some of the BYU vs Utah game. I fell asleep at the end. I was so exhausted from getting like 4 hours of sleep the night before (we watched The Emperor's New Groove at Jessica's after the 10:00 showing of Twilight).

Sunday we had dinner at our friends' Michael and Ashli's NEW house and then played a ton of Nerts at Brandon's parents house. Gotta love weekends!!! And this next one is gonna be 4 days long. Can't wait.

Twilight sucked by the way. Not totally, I guess, but it definitely wasn't very good.

Body Worlds

On Saturday I went to the Body Worlds exhibit in Salt Lake. It was so amazing! Totally worth the money and time spent to go. I loved it. Brandon gets grossed out by that sort of stuff so I went with Shellee, Brandon's little brother's girlfriend. We had a blast! You can't take pictures so I don't have any and I was gonna post one from the internet but I couldn't find one that wouldn't gross Brandon out, so this is a pictureless post. Probably my first one. Anyway, if any of you are trying to decide if you should go to Body Worlds, I would say GO! It totally gave me a new appreciation for Heavenly Father's creations and it also made me want to take a lot better care of my body! It was A-MAZ-ING.

Rebel Town

So...I took a quick trip to St. George with my sister Kristen last weekend. It went by way too fast but was a ton of fun. We went down there to visit a lady from her mission who is from Kentucky but was visiting in St. George. Pretty much all we did was hang out with my cousin who is going to Dixie, go shopping, and go to the temple. Then we came back. But it was totally worth it. Such a fun weekend getaway.

I LOVE the St. George Temple. It is so beautiful.
Kristen and Sister Pierce. I finally met this lady after hearing about her for like 5 years.

Eating breakfast (at lunch time) at the Bear Paw Restaurant. The food was amazing!
The BEST part about my trip was this CUTE note that Brandon hid in my purse for me. Brandon tried all day on Friday to give me clues, NONE of which I got (not a big surprise to a lot of you) as to where the note was, and then finally he sent me a text that just said look in the inside pocket of your purse. And I found this cutest note ever from the best husband in the world. Here's what it looked like on the outside. Yes, he went elementary school style.

I would tell you what it said inside, but you will all be way too jealous. So I will just sum it up here: My husband loves me. :) And I love him. Going to St. George was worth it JUST to get this note.

Bob the Builder

So, if any of you remember, Brandon and I built our sweet little TV stand. It was an assemble on your own type deal. I LOVED doing it and Brandon didn't so much. Well ever since we moved in to our new place we have needed a computer desk. Yes, for the past 7 and a half months our computer has been sitting on our kitchen table or on the floor. Pretty white trash, I know. But we finally bought a desk and I was SO happy that it was another Sauder assemble on your own piece of furniture. This time I pretty much put it together all on my own, Brandon helped a little, but he knew I wanted to do it. it is. I'm pretty proud of it.

Now I'm just wondering what else I can buy that needs to be put together....

Another one Bites the Dust

Well, another Halloween is over. I think the anticipation and the pre-Halloween activities were more fun than the actual day, but I guess it wasn't half bad. We spent the night giving out candy to trick-or-treaters (first time and I wish it was the last time) and then went to a really fun party at our friends Michael and Ashlie's house. The best part of the party, in my opinion, was eating a donut on a string, couple style.

Me and Bran going at it.

Ashli and Michael

Batman and Batgirl

My husband is so attractive...

We made our own caramel apples too, which was awesome.

My friend Jessica and I all dressed up at work.

PS. I was also picture tagged. I am supposed to post the 4th picture in the 4th folder in my pictures. Yep, here it is guys. Obviously one that should have been deleted. :) I'm sitting next to Dallin, and that's Jason in the back seat. Both are Brandon's brothers. We were on our way to go miniature golfing two summers ago.
