Friday Blog!

You guys - we made it. Here we are at yet another Friday. Oh how I love Friday's.

Happy List!

- Frightmares tomorrow. I honestly am so excited - it's a little ridiculous.

- I've been running again...and by again I mean I've ran 4 times in the last two weeks. But Braedon and I are back on schedule for exercising right after work. I really do enjoy it. Yesterday I ran two miles in 18 mins. Woot! (I realize this is probably not that great by most peoples standards... but for me it's pretty awesome).

- Braedon and I have gotten back into cooking a bit more this past week. The other day we made home made Country Fried Steak (with home made white gravy). We made a mess - but it was yummy! We also made yummy mini cinnamon rolls with homemade gooey icing. Mmmmmm.
Fried Steak with Green Beans

- Last week Braedon and I were over at his Grandparents and his sister and cousins were painting their nails. I haven't painted my nails (besides for the wedding) since highschool. I was bored - so I thought why not. I painted my nails and discovered that I actually enjoy painting nails... just not necessarily having them painting. I then did Braedon's sisters for homecoming.
Mine were gone after like two days.

- I have the cutest Nieces and Nephew since ever. I just so thoroughly love being an Aunt and am going to try my hardest to be the favorite Aunt. :)

Baby Aria - Oh the cheeks!
Baby C - who loves meat (we think she might be
a zombie). :)
Newest Edition - Baby Noah. Love the hair!

- It's Conference Weekend - I love Conference. Good counsel all while sitting in my PJ's on my comfortable couch (or possibly while in a bubble bath). Perfection.

- October is tomorrowThat means I get to decorate for Halloween. That also means it's still Fall. Win.

Happy Last Day of September and Happy Friday Internets!


Dear _______,

Dear Universe,
I'm back for another round of the random "letter's" people write to one self or other random objects. Last time I found it pretty entertaining. Hope you're okay with that.
Love, Me.

Dear Calluses,
Do you have to make our reunions so painful? Why can't you just be there when I need you... it always has to be this slow build up to a firm relationship. Let's speed up this painful process, eh?
Love, Me.

Dear Utes,
Even though your offense isn't that great, I appreciate your efforts in walloping BYU. Thank you for a fun night with the family.
Love, Me.

Dear Random Sir,
Thank you ever so much for listening to your son and putting that 'FREE' sign on your unwanted washer and dryer. Thank you also for telling me all your cute stories of when you were a pilot in the Air Force. I hope your bursitis eases up.
Love, Me.

Dear Braedon,
Thanks for marrying me. Let's be together for eternity, mmmkay?
Love, Me.

Dear Pinterest,
I am torn between gratitude for sharing your wonderful knowledge of recipes, house design, travel and innovative ideas - or guilt for spending so much time looking at your wonderful pictures.
Love, Me.

Dear School,
I miss you and am sorry for all the horrible things I said about you. Let's meet up again sometime, eh?
Love, Me.

Dear Facebook,
You are trying too hard. Stop it. You're ruining everything and making my love for Google+ even greater.
Love, Me.

Dear Books,
I know I've been neglecting you a little bit the past while - I apologize for that. I can't wait to come back to the warm embrace of your pages and promise to do so post haste.
Love, Me.

Dear phrase "post haste",
I just love to say you. Thanks for existing. I will try to use you again post haste. :)
Love, Me.

Dear Fall,
You are wonderful.
Love, Me.

Dear Babies A, C, and N,
Do you realize you are the cutest things since ever? And that I absolutely adore your ever squeaking, wiggling, cuddling, farting, cooing, laughing, grabbing, smiling, hugging selves?
Love, Auntie K.

Dear Life,
Could you be any better? I think not. Unless I so happened to win the lottery with out even entering...
Love, Me

Dear Legs,
I swear it hasn't been that long since I last ran. If you could stop killing every time I stand up, that would be really great.
Love, Me.

Dear Halloween,
I have my very own place this year to decorate as I want (outside and in). Are you as excited as me? I hope so.
Love, Me.

Dear Weekends,
Our time together is always too brief. I can't wait to meet up with you again in a few days.
Love, Me.

Dear Blog,
I really have enjoyed our time together the past years, and look forward to the many more years of useless ramblings. Thanks for always listening.
Love, Me.

Dear Readers,
It's been real.
Love, Me.


Things That Make Me Happy Right Now

I'm happy. Very happy. Here's a few reason's why:

- It's Fall. I had to use my heater this morning. Oh how I love crisp mornings.

- My fruit smiled at me this morning:

- I've been painting again. I've missed it. Finished these two over the weekend. They may not be anything special, but I have fun doing it. :)

- Walking down Halloween Decoration isles at the store. I love Halloween decorations almost as much as Christmas. It might even be a tie. I love Halloween. :)

- Speaking of Halloween. On Oct 1st Braedon and I get to go to Frightmares for FREE because it's his works' Lagoon day! I've never been to Frightmares and I've always wanted to! I can't wait!

- My nieces. They always make me happy. Any bad day is turned around with a kiss and a hug from either of these two.

- The fact that in 10 days or less I'll have a nephew to add to the mix and to get cute hugs and kisses from!

- I get to wake up next to this wonderful man every day. :)


Fall and Friday's.

Oh you know - just another update.

- First off. My lovely friend Kelci started a Google+ account due to my last blog - so in fair turn I started a pinterest account. Hooked. Love it. Don't have one? Get one. Don't get it? Talk to me. :)

- Football. I love Football. I love going up to my parents house to watch all the Utah games together. What makes football even better then it already is? My wonderfully cute niece:
Seriously? Who wouldn't route for Utah after
seeing this cutie!?
- I also started my first Fantasy Football team. I honestly don't have much knowledge of what I'm doing. Luckily I have an awesome brother that is patient with me and will teach me. I just know that the Ninja Dragon's are gonna kill it (cause honestly - what else do Ninja's and Dragon's do?).

- Did you know what else Football means? FALL! AUTUMN! Oh glorious Fall how I love thee. Changing leaves, cooling temperatures, Halloween, hot chocolate, beautiful mountains, wonderful smells... sigh. Perfection.

- Camping over Labor Day weekend was wonderful. So beautiful and actually lots warmer then last year. I love waking up to this:

- My wonderful sister Melissa is expecting. My first nephew could come any time between Sunday and the 23rd. Eek! I'm so excited to add a cute little boy to the mix! :)

- A couple of week's ago I got to take some really cute pictures of my niece Baby C. This week I get to take some really cute pictures of my other niece Baby A (pictured above). I'm pretty excited. Keep your eyes open to the photography blog for them - I'm hoping to edit Baby C's this upcoming week. :)

- Have I mentioned I love being an Aunt? Cause I do.

- It's Friday. And Fall (did I mention that already?). I get to watch the Utah game this weekend, take photos of my cute niece, and get to spend time with the family. It's gonna be good. :)

Happy Friday Internets. :)
