Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful!

It is really hard to be a California girl and live in the Utah winters for so long now. I can't believe how cold it has gotten the past few days. I thought it was a little funny when I was working last night EVERY customer was thinking that the storm that was about to come was the end of the world. Obviously, it is important to be safe...but come on people, just be smart when there's a storm and stay home! Why are you out shopping when you are so worried about the weather? It was said on the news that this storm was supposed to be one of the biggest of the century. Luckily, Provo and Orem didn't get barely any snow, it was just absolutely FREEZING! I think the lowest it got to was about 10 degrees. Believe it or not I walked about 2 miles last night outside with my sister in law and her sister! We bundled up pretty snug, but our faces felt like they were going to break off! I was proud of myself for bearing through it because it felt nice! Stay warm Utah folks!

Yay for the holidays!

So I know that I am going to get a lot of crap for this, but I am willing to deal with it! Since I had to start celebrating Halloween, decorating and watching scary movies in September, I was promised that I could start celebrating my favorite holiday EVER in November. I know, I know, "Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet," but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the holiday and am grateful for Thanksgiving. I just get over-excited about the holiday about Christ, and giving, and peace. So bear with me! We just had so much fun getting everything at the dollar store. I think it turned out pretty good for how cheap everything was! :)

Eat, Drink and be SCARY!

On Saturday morning Ben and I started off our Halloween by eating breakfast and playing a game called "Munchkin' Bites," which is a type of monster card game. I figured it would be a good way to start off Ben's FaVoRiTe holiday of the year. By the time we were done it was 11:30 and Ben said, "Alright, time to get our costumes on!" Haha, I started laughing but he was actually serious. We ended up wearing our costumes ALL day! Ben was a "dead Jack the Ripper" and I was a dead rag doll. Ben is all about the scariness of Halloween, so I decided that this year I would be something a little out of my comfort zone and be something dead. Anyways, we ended up walking around the mall while Ben scared the little kiddies. Afterward, we went to the family's house to have a Halloween party with everybody. Ben hid in a treasure chest in the walkway and would pop out at the trick or treaters as they came to the door. It was pretty funny. One Mexican child got scared and said "No quiero! No quiero!" and ran off down the street. It was hilarious. It was a fun Halloween all together, and I know that Ben is ALREADY thinking of plans for next year!
