Lord of the Rings Marathon

Saturday, Todd and I had our Annual Lord of the Rings Marathon over at the Shearers! It was a lot of fun! Its a tradition me and my cousin Amanda started once we graduated high school, we had it every year between Nov-Dec for 3 years, then she moved away. :( But I'm glad to say that we've still continued it. Last year we had it at our apt, and this year we had it at Jen and Ro's. So yeah... it was my 5th LOTR Marathon and Todd's 3rd! Crazy huh. People might think its a little silly, but we love it!!! :)

1st Year Early Birds

On Thanksgiving day, Todd and I were up at his house looking through some of the Holiday ads with his family, when we spotted this really great deal on a digital camera! You may remember, I fell into lake Powell with my old camera- so getting a new one had been on our minds for a while. So anyways, we saw a Canon Camera for $129.99 at Inkley's which is usually $160 and it came with a free $100 value coat! Todd needed a coat, so we thought it would be good to kill 2 birds with one stone. We were a little hesitant at first because we had no idea what would be in store for us if we woke up early and got to the doors. The store opened at 6am and we figured getting there 15 minutes early was good enough. WRONG! People had been lining up since 4am! It wasn't a large crowed. We maybe had about 15 people in front of us and 10 behind us, but we were nervous everyone was going for the same thing! Well, we finally got into the store and thankfully we were able to get help pretty quick. We told them we wanted the Canon camera with the free coat. Then she asked us if we wanted the free printer that went a long with it. "YES!" we decided on the spot. Then we saw that they were also giving away three 4GB memory cards! For FREE! So we snatched them as well!!! When we left and added everything up, we realized we had gotten over $400 worth of stuff for only $130!!!! We were stoked! When we got home we were so excited to tell everyone about our great deal. I can see now why people like to do this every year- it was awesome getting the deal that we got and it was kind of like a mini high. Ha ha. But I was so excited that i wanted to post it on our blog! So enjoy! ;)

Twilight finally came out on Friday, and me, my sisters, and my mom woke up early to catch the first show. We all got pretty into it, which was fun. We each wore a Twilight shirt and some red hair strands in our hair! Lol. Call us nerds, but the night before the show we had a little party where we made Twilight bracelets and talked about our favorite parts in the book! We had a good time laughing at our obsessions, especially Chantel's with Edward! ;)

When we got to the show early the next day, we were confronted with a HUGE line. Luckily we were still able to find some good seats! Before the previews began, me and my sisters wrote some Twilight "art" on each other. Lets just say, some people looked at us a little funny... but we didn't care because WE ARE TWILIGHT NERDS!!!

We were a little nervous that the movie was going to be really lame and cheesy, but we left absolutely loving it! In fact, I saw it again with Todd that night up in Bountiful! Ha ha. Oh yeah, and guys... he liked it too! So if you haven't seen it already... GO!!!

So I haven't written anything for a while, because not a whole lot has been going on. However, this weekend turned out to be a good one! On Friday night, me and Todd invited some friends and family over to come down and have a bomb fire. We roasted marshmallows, listened to some music, told some stories, and then ended the night by getting in the hot tub. It was a lot of fun because it was something new! If theres one thing i hate, is doing the same thing every weekend. Then on Saturday me and Todd watched the the byu football game with my sister Tiff and Spenc. The game got pretty intense, which is always fun- when we came up on top anyways. :) Then after the game, we met up with Todd's sister Emily and Andrew at IKEA where we walked around and got some great ideas for decorating. (I love decorating!) Then we ate some dinner there and hung out for the rest of the time. It was a lot of fun. On the way home, me and Todd stopped at block buster where we got two movies. We got "Duplex" and "Fever Pitch." Drew Berrymore is in both of them, which we thought was pretty funny cuz Todd usually doesn't like her. We watched "Duplex" when we got home and it was really funny! If anyone hasn't seen it, and you like Ben Stiller and your looking for a comedy, I recommend it. Then today, Sunday, we just stayed here, ate a great ham and cheesy potato dinner with my family and watched Kunfu Panda! I was good. We liked it. :) I'm really excited for next weekend because of two things. Twilight is on Friday (Yes I'm a twilight fan!), and me and my sisters are going to the Celin Dion Concert in SLC! Lol. Its going to be awesome!!!! So yeah...... pretty fun stuff. But that's all that's been going on. Nothing too interesting, but SOMETHING! Hopefully next time I'll have something more exciting to post. :)

Makin' Babies...

So I saw this on my friends blog and thought it would be fun to try it out! Lol. I put in mine and Todd's pictures and this is "supposedly" what our kids could look like! I was a little nervous at first... "What if they are ugly?" I thought. But I was pretty happy with the results. So i guess in five years or so i can look back on this and see how close they were. I actually don't think these pictures look anything like either of us, or our baby pictures, but oh well. It was fun! :) Hope you enjoy!
