I love Halloween! But when you are living in an apartment complex you don't get any trick or treaters. Also, Kyle and I are at that awkward stage where we are too old to go trick or treating, there aren't many options for married couple parties and we don't have any kids to take out trick or treating...haha...but we did go hang out with our friends, Forrest and Melissa. But before Halloween Kyle and I and Melissa and Forrest went to a pumpkin patch. It was real fun! Forrest and Melis took pictures...but they haven't posted any of them yet...just waiting ;) and then we carved them after that. haha, our pumpkins are still outside and they are looking pretty sad...
Not much to say, but it is the beginning of the Christmas season! :) It's a happy month.
IT'S CHRISTMAS TIME!! I LOVE CHRISTMAS!! I was working last night and Kyle surprised me with some Christmas decorations when we got home. He is so wonderful :) He bought lights and hung them in the window and got a 6 1/2 foot tree with lights on it and hung candy canes on it. It looks so beautiful and it makes me feel so happy! He's really good with surprises and he knows how to make me happy. :)
Things are going real well for us, we're both pretty happy and still so much in love! hehe...School is going well for Kyle also.
Anyway...that's about it. Hopefully some day we'll be able to post new pictures. I'm trying to figure out how to post a bunch of pictures on the blog without taking up a lot of space.

2. The hiring department from Questar Gas called me today to set up an appointment for an interview. I have it tomorrow morning over the phone, pray that it goes well!
3. So there's a movie out in dollar theatres right now called District 9 and we're suppose to card everyone that is looks younger than 25 (I don't know, it's weird...it's my manager's rule). Tonight when I was working I carded this girl that (from first glance) looked young enough for that age range...well she said she didn't have it. She said she was 30 and that's when I realized that she was a little older. Then right away she said, "well I have my Temple Recommend that proves I'm old enough". And hearing this, I was shocked and kind of upset that she would actually use her Temple Recommend to get her into a rated R movie. I don't know what I should've done, but I know I should've said something at least. I mean come on! That is ridiculous to use something so sacred and important to get yourself into a movie that the church and definitely not the Lord is for and okay with. It just makes me mad. This isn't even the first time this has happened...
And then at work we have this student discount for all those that have there college student ID's for a price cut for a ticket. So all these BYU students use there card to get the discount to get into the rated R movie. Now, I don't care so much about the fact that they are seeing the rated R movie, that's their choice. But it's the fact that they use their BYU card for the discount when BYU has a standard, and watching rated R movies is not one of them (but the standard is to not watch them). I hope that some day the theatre will get the "okay" to not accept BYU cards for the discount when getting tickets to rated R movies. UGH! And this happens almost constantly. Most of the people that go into these rated R movies are BYU students trying to get the discount.
People are ridiculous...

So today I got a call from ron Jipson, who is the president of Questar Gas and he said that he'll talk to the hiring people and make sure they got my application. Then they will call me to set up an appointment for an interview!! Yay! I hope this works out...it would be so nice. Although I wouldn't be getting home till about 8pm everyday, the pay is worth it. Plus I get the weekends and I believe holidays off! So that's a plus. :) yay! I actually get to spend time with Kyle! Oh, and prayers would be nice :) We really need me to get this job, it is very important.
Today started out pretty good...Melissa and I went on our walk and stuff...then when I got home I got this really bad pain in my chest and the area above my stomach. It was like shooting/stabbing pains. It wasn't too bad at first, but then it gradually got worse and I could barely stand it. I had work at 4, but was praying and hoping that it would go away because I was having such a hard time walking around, let alone moving. The ibuprofen worked for a little bit and the pain wasn't so bad soon after I got to work. Then a little before 6 the pain all of a sudden got worse. Ugh, it really was no fun. But yeah, I don't know what it was...but I know I never want to have that again. Oh, and I am feeling better, yay!
Well, love you all.

Tonight Kyle had an ultimate game, and it was pretty awesome. He won 12-4...and Kyle played so amazing! He's pretty good :)
Anyway, so yesterday I did send in my application to Questar Gas and I was suppose to hear from a guy about it...but I still haven't. So today I decided to call him to check on everything and make sure he got it. He didn't answer, so I just left a message....man I need a job. It would be a miracle and pretty much amazing if I got this job...I would feel so much better about our financial situation because I'm getting pretty nervous about the money thing. Alwell, that seems to be the case for a lot of newlyweds and/or college students. It's stressful though....
P.S. Kyle has a bunch of tests in the next weekish...prayers would be nice! Please and thank you :)

So I wasn't feeling very scared after that, I was feeling more glad I went. Well Kyle and I came home and watched a scary movie. I was still pretty fine after that. Then we went to bed. I had all these scary dreams with all these famous murderers from movies...like Jigsaw from Saw and...I don't remember the other names...the sad thing is that I haven't seen any of the movies, just seen pictures of the guys and previews. They did have little sections for each of them in the haunted forrest...but i didn't think it scared me that bad. Anyway...I was up a lot and was afraid to go back asleep after I had the first dream. Anyway...that's my story, haha.
So today is Kyle and my 4TH MONTH ANNIVERSARY :) yayyy! Exciting!
Love you all :)

Until next time :)
Anyway...so I have a calling now!!! I am the nursery/primary chorister!! :) All the kids are like between the ages of about 1 1/2 and 3ish...maybe there's a 3 1/2 yr. old..haha so yeah, they're like babies pretty much..and I'm not quite sure how excited they will be to sing, but we'll have to wait and see what happens next week. I'm pretty excited though, I get to work with the little children! :)
Kyle doesn't have a calling right now, they said that he's basically off the hook for now. I think Kyle's more relieved about that though. Not because he didn't want one, but with going to school full time and trying to get the grades he needs...it's really nice to have just one big thing to focus on. He has a little breather time until he does get a calling. But he seems to like the ward. He and the guys play basketball every Wednesday night and it is really good for him to go out and get to know some of the guys in our ward and just have fun. He is also on an ultimate frisbee team with Forrest (his good friend) and Forrest's ward. He has games just about every week...he loves ultimate, so I'm so glad he's doing this.
His friend Kalei plays ultimate too (he's really good) and they get a group together about once a week to every other week to just play for a couple hours. I wish I was better, haha...so then he can actually play with his wife too! haha..but me, being good at any sport? hahah..that's funny!
Anyway...I must go, the fruit salad is ready!! :)

The good things:
- I found 5 dollars in the theatre
- I found 2 pennies...
- I watched a little bit of the movie Up
- I love how I can get free popcorn and drinks
The down things:
- I worked with a girl that is very annoying
All in all, it wasn't too bad...
So does anyone have any ideas on how to get yourself in habit to exercise...because I stink at doing that.........
Oh, and today I made some wonderful spaghetti for Kyle and myself when he got home from school. I need to improve a little, but all in all it was pretty good :) It had flavor, although I need to add some more spice. Kyle & I talked about what I needed to improve on and we agreed on what was missing. We also had yummy toast with it.
Tomorrow Kyle doesn't have class, so YAYYY!! :) It'll be a good day...although I work 6 to close again. lame.
But I am so proud of Kyle, he is doing so well in school! So yay!
Well, I'm gonna go now.
P.S. Is there a trick to either fall asleep quickly or to atleast sleep well??? Because lately..it hasn't been working out well for me.

So Kyle and I had an amazing Sunday dinner yesterday :) We had roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, then some vegi's, toast and a yummy drink. It was deelish. (Just thought I'd share..and possibly make you jealous ;))
Last week we went to the park for dinner and had a picnic! It was so fun :) We walked around, saw some ducks and played on the playground. Hehe..It was a good day though.
I must go..I need to do some dishes, I am behind on cleaning. (oops!)

Sept. 3rd 2009
It's amazing to look back and see how fast time has gone. It almost feels like it was just January and Kyle and I started dating, how weird huh? But now it is September, Kyle and I are married and are moved into our apartment in Provo. He's going to school while both of us are searching for jobs....we are out in the real world now, paying our rent, and food, etc...it is the beginning of a new life for both of us.
I think back to when I was young, always dreaming of the day that I would be married. Well it's that time now, and sometimes it is still hard to believe. But I never knew how happy you could feel and be. I didn't know exactly the feelings that would come with it. I figured that yeah, it'll be all fun and exciting. But no, I never expected to feel so happy because I'm with my best friend all the time and it is a blast!

Read Aloud For Best Effect!!!
The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).
In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c." Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik emthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like fotograf" 20 persent shorter.
In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.
By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by "v".
During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.
After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech ozer.
Ze drem vil finali kum tru.
