last night

we went to Owl City instead of my high school reunion. And it was AWESOME!!!!!!! I'm sad I missed seeing old friends, but really I see most of the people I'd want to see anyways. (or at least read their blogs!) But honestly, the sound was amazing, and the venue was perfect for this show. It goes down as one of the BEST!
But the band before, the Scene Aesthetic, they were pretty good, but one of the singers was wearing that stupid Barack Obama shirt with just his face on it. What's up with celebrities (or wannabe celebrities) worshiping him? What's up with Barack winning the Noble peace prize? Wasn't he only in office like 20 days before he was nominated for it? And what's up with Barack saying Fox News can't have news feeds because they're not a real news station. I'm so sick of him.

dot you just love it!?

More Halloween Dots!
These "ghost" ones are a variety of fruit flavors. Basically they're regular dots, but you can't tell which color you're eating. So I really like to eat them and close my eyes and figure out which flavor I've got. Kind of like Rod (in Hot Rod) with his Jelly Bellies.
And the Bats, are Blood Orange flavor. These are great! The flavor is a more intense one than a usual Dot. Just like with the Candy Corn ones, it took me a while to get used to it, but now I love it!

back to our trip:

after our blood ordeal at BYU, we...

went to a pumpkin patch and Drake posed on tractors,
went to a Chump reunion show in Provo to watch Gavin (Ryan's bro) relive the glory days,
went to Temple square,
Drake learned how to use a urinal,
had lunch with our friends, the Stathams,
met up with my preggo friend Desiree,
went to SanFran and saw homeless people SMOKE CRACK!, pretend to be pregnant while begging for food, and went to Nike town to pick up my run stuff,
got a bed on Craigslist that we painted, (like Gwen's painting clothes?)
bought A LOT of gas,
almost fell off a cliff,
fed animals at a mini farm,
rode on a little STEAM ENGINE train,
slid down a cement slide on cardboard,
ate CHEESE BOARD pizza, oh baby was that good!
And got up at the crack of dawn (or before) to go run,
and this girl was inspired,
finishing the 1/2 and wishing I just did the full,
and then had a long drive home.
At least blue push pops make the time go faster.

nike women's

Tomorrow I'm supposed to run a marathon. But I tried running Thursday morning and was definitely feeling the stress fracture. So I'm taking it easy and am going to do the 1/2 instead.

That's my name on the windows of Nike Town.
It's for real now.
I'm so excited!

We're cheap. I mean really cheap. So when we went to BYU with the intention of getting new BYU shirts and saw that a blood drive was going on, and donators got free BYU shirts, Ryan and I signed up. The kids loved it. They pigged out on all the snacks available to donors while we were waiting.
Gwen was so cute while we were giving blood. She kept saying, "oh, mommy, I love you....mommy are you okay?....oh mommy...etc"
Once we were done, Ryan chilled on the couch drinking juice and eating cookies for about 15 minutes, and then when we got up to leave, we didn't get very far before he had to sit where he was, and then just laid on my lap for another 10 minutes. Poor guy. Look how pale he is!
Then we met up with Ryan's buddy from his mission, Ken Prince and his three adorable kids. Look at Drake and Stockton. Doesn't Stockton look like he could be Drake's brother?
We took the kids to roll down the hill that goes down to the library. They loved it!
Gwen and Brinley
The kids loved each other, it was so cute! We miss BYU so much. So we did a lot of brainwashing, doing what we can to make sure the kids go there. ;)

She's been at it again. This little girl loves photo booth! I love getting on my computer and seeing new pictures of her.
