Winter is flexing his muscles today in UT with a blizzard warning. A blizzard WARNING folks! Yeah that pretty much never happens here. We tend to just deal with what winter has to deal out...it is just what it is. So now we are all scrambling around trying to figure out what one does in the case of blizzard warnings. Schools are closing, people are leaving work early, 72 hour kits are being pulled out. It would be quite the disappointment if this storm came and went without a hitch...only time will tell.
If this storm is everything it's supposed to be maybe...just maybe we will get a free day tomorrow. One can dream of starting their Thanksgiving Holiday early, especially because we get to hang with the Lamberts (our UT family) tomorrow for a little early feasting. I plan on getting some tips on making the best mashed potatoes seeing as there is a small competition between me and my brother in law. Let the best potatoes win!
So besides sore backs, and impending doom all is right with the world!!

So sorry to drag you all into the mire, but it's an honest snapshot of what my Friday morning feels like. By Monday things will have improved!

I was recently talking to a friend about the frustration I've felt about wanting to do some of the things I miss and took for granted...like working out. I miss having that freedom to just move without thought or concern. I'm feeling completely motivated to get my butt in shape, but now is not the time to undertake anything major. So I will wait...hoping that that motivation is still there when I can do something with it.

The Sullivan Halloween party:
It was a great night filled with spooky food, dancing, slime, and family!Scary movie night:
I'm not a big scary movie person in general, but once a year I put aside my fear and get into the mood of Halloween by watching a scary movie. We like to make a night of it with dinner and friends. This year the Wards, along with baby Mikey came over for the festivities. Jill made her famous corn chowder, and we just enjoyed the company all around.
This past week Roy sold his mt. bike, which has been on KSL for the past 3 months. After several days of conflicting thoughts and ideas, we finally decided to buy Christmas early this year (we may have got this idea from G-ward and Hayley). Roy has been consumed with RC cars lately. Say what you want, but it's his nostalgic hobby...and honestly, even though I had envisioned a white trash hobby, I didn't have the heart to dash his childhood love.
The great thing about it though is that without fail, every guy he's shown has acted just like a little boy on Christmas morning. They LoVE driving it, and Roy can't stop smiling!
What with Roy enjoying his new toy, I was feeling a little left out. I have been wanting to get a bigger i-pod to hold all of our music, but we had never gotten around to it. We have always been fine with a shuffles for when we worked out. But we finally caved and got the i-pod touch. I don't think I've put it down since this past weekend. I keep discovering something new on it and I just get more stoked about it every time. We will just re-wrap these bad boys come December and be just as giddy then as we are now!
Sorry for the overload, but like I said, time was not my friend this week.
