.pumpkin contest.

so my office had a pumpkin carving contest. i halfway carved a pumpkin that had random designs on it and decided that i needed help. i didnt technically cheet since there was no rule about where the carved pumpkin came from, we were just told to bring in a carved pumpkin. so i put others to the task! so the point of the story is, johns pumpkin won first prize in my office pumpkin carving contest! i love it!

crystal won second place.

ryan (from finance) and his son won third place. its not carved, but its cute. and creepy, it has a growth on its head and you cant see it but hes holding a tylenol bottle in his hand. hehe.

.K-9 relief.

John and i were walking around some shops the other day and i was surprised, slightly grossed out and amused to see this little potty stop right in the middle of the sidewalk. very unexpected.

.the office.

The little office that i work in is one of about 50 in a big building but we are the only office who decorates for every season. this is what we decorated for fall.Our office is on the fourth floor and bringing those bales of hay up left peices of hay and the smell of farm all over the elevator, halls and lobby. and then thay made us put flame retardant all over them which only intensified the smell!!

And lucky me, I get to work with my best friend!!

.the ponytail palm.

When i saw this plant at the store it reminded me of dr. suess' fantastical world. since i love all things fantastical, i bought it. even though i have nowhere to keep it.
im not good at keeping things alive so i did some research on it and oh my goodness! i found a photo of a 30 year old one that was in "bloom" and when i said the small one reminded me of dr suess it is nothing compared to this one!!!!!! soo cool and completely unique!

.my best friends wedding.

My bff Ali T. (lives in idaho) is officially engaged!!! YAHOO!! im so excited for her!! His name is Brian Childs. They are planning for the beginning of next year in salt lake. so keriann you can expect me to be visiting!

.i love getting mail.

I got my macbook laptop today, and Hayden got his desktop!!! Mine is black, i really like it! Its so different than microsoft and its frustrating to have to practically relearn how to use a computer, but im getting there. It comes with a video chatting program so hayden and i were learning how to use them together over video in our rooms. It was fun. everyone should get a mac so we can video chat together! Its exciting. We each got an ipod touch too. Those are super cool cuz you can have music movies and photos plus you can access wireless internet from them! geez apple should pay me advertising fees for this blog! anyway, im excited for my cool new toys!
NOTE: if you click on the name Springbrook Homes in my last post it will take you to their homepage! i think thats neat!

Finally a new post.
I started a new job on monday! Thats always exciting and scary! Im working for a company called Springbrook Homes. part of the time im a receptionist and the other part i do financial data entry. i almost cried my first day because i was so overwhelmed. I got more comfortable by the end of the week, but i still have a lot to learn! my favorite part is that i get to work with my bff crystal a few days a week! that makes it majorly enjoyable. Plus i get paid more than my last job!! kaching!

Florida was so fun! We went to the beach, and i attempted to learn to surf which lasted about 10 minutes, the water was super cold but naturally the beach was beautiful! We also took the boat out on a lake at night to stalk gators which was frightening! I already miss being around my cousins, i love the brutal honesty of saying whats on their mind no matter who is around! Westin is going to be a wonderful missionary, he already shares his testimony with people and everyone knows exactly what he stands for.

.favorite quote.

Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

this old house

My mom and i were driving around the other day and BOOM! all of the sudden i see the greatest house in the world! This picture does not do this house justice! Its smack dab in the middle of the city, yet it sits on a few acres of land. Its one of the few houses left that was built when phoenix first started to develop. there are wrap around portches, huge trees (one with a tire swing even. classic!) and a large guest house to the side. i was amazed to see this type of old house so close to the busy streets and corporate buildings. I love it.

The Best!

This right here is the greatest family EVER! I am so lucky to have such awesome and good looking siblings. Its difficult to think about what it would be like to grow up as an only child,or with even one of them missing, very boring. Its like having built-in best friends. I love it.

new calling...s

ive finally been released from my calling as a member of the enrichment committee after two grueling months! (i seriously did nothing.) Today i was put in as the young single adults ward representative alongside hayden, and also on the primary board as the SUNBEAMS teacher!! wow. I actually have to do assignments, talk to people and show up for meetings now! These are my first action callings and im pretty excited! Im guessing it will take some effort, which believe it or not i am willing to do, but im looking forward to doing it and seeing how this will strengthen my testimony!

P.S. in case any of my sisters were wondering, John had a missionary discussion on thursday. I wasnt present, but he and the missionarys both told me that it was enjoyable and such. YIPPEE!!
