Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging

26 October 2011

Don't really know what to blog about right now.  I don't have any cute pictures to post, nothing exciting has happened lately.....hmmmm.... I guess I'll just start typing, and we'll see where this goes! Today I woke up at 4am. WHY?  I have noooo idea, but I just laid in bed wide awake for half an hour tossing and turning, and trying to fall asleep, then I got worried I was keeping Jared awake too, so I decided to go in the living room and watch a movie...I always fall asleep when I watch movies! 
I put in a movie that I got at the library yesterday called "Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging".
Don't judge the title, it's Nickelodeon movie okay! I got it because one of my friends read the book, and recommended it.  Anyways, I thought the movie was HILARIOUS.  It's a teeny bopper know like: A Cinderella Story... She's the Man...etc. So if you don't like those type of movies, don't bother with this one.  I liked it though :)

Halloween Party and Cake Batter Bars!

22 October 2011

We went to our church Halloween party today! It was fun dressing up. We went as Nintendo characters. Jared was Mario, I was Princess Peach, and Kyler was Toad (the little mushroom). We didn't want to waste a lot of money on expensive costumes (that we would only wear once) So I decided to make them! Jared was such a good sport. I found his overalls at the DI in the Ladies section with Winnie the Pooh and Piglet patches all over them (nothing a seam ripper can't fix!) hahaha and then I made the rest of his and kyler's costumes out of felt and hot glue. Mine was a little more tricky, so I ended up just wearing my wedding dress and putting pink fabric on top of it.

They didn't turn out to be the cutest costumes in the world, but hey, for making all three of our costumes for under 15 bucks, NOT BAD!


This recipe will definitely be going under the "Recipe Likes" tab! My absolute FAVORITE ice cream in the world is from Coldstone, and it is called Birthday Cake Remix (which uses cake batter ice cream)  Anyways, so anything with the words CAKE BATTER in it always grabs my attention. I saw the recipe and decided to give it a try!  Mine didn't LOOK nearly as pretty as the picture I copied and pasted from the internet, but boy did they taste YUMMY! and the best part? SO easy to make.  Oh and I almost forgot to add: Sorry if you are on a diet. You may now consider yourself doomed.

This isn't Kyler's REAL Halloween Costume, pictures of that one coming later... This used to be one of Kyler's cousin's Halloween costumes. It is kind of big on him, but it still looks adorable. He is wearing it everywhere we go today  :)

I'm a little behind on blogging.  It's been a busy past few weeks!  I finally finished selling my products at the Rexburg Farmer's Market yesterday!  It was fun, and a great way to earn a little extra money :)  

Two weeks ago, Jared and I were able to attend General Conference in Salt Lake City! It was AWESOME :)

It was also fun seeing the nieces and nephews are growing up so fast!

Kyler is growing up too! It is like he is trying to turn into my little boy instead of baby. Shame on him!
