Picture overload!

Finally we have pictures! That someone did bring the computer home, but then we couldn't get the Internet to work at home for the last few days. So, Josh put them up on while in class and then I took them off and put them on here! Crazy, I know! When looking at these pictures, please remember that I am not a professional by an means...and I was really just having fun editing them and they aren't suppose to look perfect. I did get lots more pictures, but I didn't want to totally bore you....So here they are!

Pictures of Karri and Jared:

Here are pictures of my nieces and nephews:

And random pictures of Logan and Christine:

Weekend in Oklahoma/Texas!

I had a GREAT weekend...I was going to post yesterday but someone left the laptop in their locker at school (but I'm not going to name any names here ;)) We even got our new power cord in the mail too! I can't upload any pictures from my work computer, so this post is going to be without pictures post, but I am going to try and post the pictures tonight or tomorrow if that someone brings the computer home today.....On to my weekend!

Friday: I got up at about 4:30 AM! Yeah, it was way early and I was WAY tired! I made all my flight just fine and landed in Tulsa at 10:10am! Pretty good, huh? Especially for flying stand by! My mom and oldest sister Christine picked me up from the airport. On our way home, we stopped at the best ice cream/burger joint out there, aka Braums! (The sad thing is that they are only located in Oklahoma and the surrounding states) My strawberry shortcake sundae with cookies-n-cream ice cream definitely hit the spot! Friday afternoon I pretty much just hung out with my sister, her kids (Stirling and Emmi) and my mom! Then we met the rest of my siblings and their families (minus Karri and Jared) at my favorite Mexican restaurant, El Vaquero! The food was good as always and it was fun to go with my family! After dinner, we went to watch the new James Bond movie! Shortly after we left the movie theater, Christine and I noticed that we had a flat tire! Logan and James were then our knights in shining armor and they fixed the flat tire. I was sooo exhausted at that point, that I just went back to my mom's, showered and went to bed.

Saturday:We got up quite early. We were suppose to leave at around 8am, but because of the flat tire, we had to wait around until like 9 or 9:30 in order to get the tire fixed...We made there in time to change into Sunday clothes and be inside the Dallas Temple at the appropriate time. Karri looked beautiful in her dress and even though she had green hair the day before, her hair looked beautiful as well. The rest of the day was filled with wedding activities! The whole day seemed very chaotic, but it all worked out in the end. I ended up staying in a hotel with my mom, step dad, brother and sister in Dallas. We took our time getting up; no one really got out of bed before 10am. Then they took me to the Dallas airport....It was hard to say goodbye to my family! I love and miss them so much! I can't wait til I can go back down and visit them all again. I sat around Dallas for a couple hours waiting for my flight and then sat in St Louis for an hour or so and finally made it home at about 10:30pm! It was a great weekend, but it definitely went by too fast.
Monday: Monday morning came WAY too fast that's for sure! I was totally exhausted, but work had to come but I did wake up to SNOW! I do love snow! It's soo beautiful (I'm sure come February or March I will want it gone though). I am totally not used to snow this time of year but I am enjoying it so far. The good thing on Monday was that Josh got up early to warm and scrape my car so I didn't even have to do it! Monday night, Josh went to a service project and what did I do? I watched Dancing with the Stars! I think I am totally addicted to this show! I REALLY like watching it! OK...well I better get back to work. I will post pictures soon though!

Yesterday, I did something that I have been WAITING to do for a long time! I am WAY excited! This is something that will not actually occur until next week though....On the 20th/21st of November. Do you know what it is??? Yep, you guessed it! I bought my ticket to go see "Twilight!" I am pretty excited about it! I am now officially going to see the movie on Thursday night at 12:01! I have heard that a lot of movie theaters have already sold out on tickets, so if you haven't already bought yours, you might want to asap!

I was planning on uploading some pictures of some of the stuff I have been doing, but our computer broke! It's very frustrating...The computer itself is ok, it is just that the battery is dead and our power cord is broken. We did buy a new one last night on eBay (right before the battery died), we just hope that we bought the right one! Anyways, that's really about all I got right now! I was just super excited about "Twilight" and felt like I needed to tell the whole world!

I just realized that I hadn't posted anything new on my blog for TWO WEEKS! Time is FLYING by, which is a total good thing! This weekend, my sister is getting married in the Dallas Temple!!! I am way excited to be going home even though it will only be for the weekend. I have a plan though to fit in all my favorite restaurants that aren't here in Ohio! Another cool thing is that this will be the first time that all my siblings Will be in the temple with me! I am way excited to go home...hopefully I will be ok coming back to Ohio on Sunday!

Josh and I haven't been up to a whole lot...I have been finishing up and starting a few new crafty projects, I will have to post pictures later. Josh and I got cable TV this last weekend! For most, it's nothing that exciting, we really only have the local channels. But the local ones are better than nothing, right? Maybe it's not though...we haven't had TV since we have been married (seven months) and so we are perfectly fine not watching it. In fact, it has only been on once and that was to watch a football game...If you are wondering why we finally got TV, it was to watch football games! I am sure though it is only a matter of time before we are completely glued to it.

Another thing that will happen this weekend, is that is will probably be the last time I see my younger brother before he goes on his mission! I am sooo very proud my Logan! He really is the best younger brother that anyone could ask for...of course we fought constantly when we were younger, but today we are good friends. I have been able to watch Logan grow in so many different ways and he was grown a lot spiritually these last few months! He is awesome...the type that will drop and do ANYTHING for his family. I love you Logan and I am very proud of you!
