On the hunt

I'm on the hunt for a new job. Unfortunately, I was laid off from my job on Friday the 13th (I know NOT too lucky) b/c of some changes in the office. It came as a total shock to me b/c I really enjoyed that job. So, while unemployment rates are on the rise i'm trying to stay positive that I will find something soon.

And since tomorrow is Thanksgiving I wanted to at least make a list of some things I am grateful for (you know to stay positive)... that Abe and I are healthy, we have two families to spend Thanksgiving day with, a temple session on Friday, Abe's new job, the BYU v. Utah football game on Saturday, and that we're now going to be going to our new ward.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!! ... now let's just hope that the pies and Lion House rolls i'm making for turkey day will turn out.

Since these two decided that they are not coming to Salt Lake tonight and are now planning on coming in February...Abe, my sister and I are going to see this!! In just 1/2 hour New Moon will come to life ... can't wait!!

a welcome surprise to the day

Yesterday when I got to work and opened up my laptop a white piece of paper fell to the ground... I thought to myself... hmmm what is this? To my surprise my wonderful husband had written me a love note and hid it in my laptop for me to find in the morning. I love notes from Abe!! What a great way to start off the day. What was in that note?? Just stuff, for me and him to know. Thanks for the note sweets! You're the best! And since I know that he merely blog stocks "our" blog and doesn't contribute, I know that he will see this post and hopefully see how much I appreciate those lovey notes and continue to leave white 8 1/2 X 11 sheets of paper hidden somewhere for me to find.

It came & went & left some candy behind

Well Halloween season is officially over. I cleaned up the last of the cob webs last night... I guess that means I have to start dusting again :) But while Halloween was upon us Abe and I dressed up and had a good time! Because Abe says he doesn't like dressing up it was my task of finding him a costume. Since I couldn't find a knight costume Abe went as a three musketeer and I went as a Renaissance Woman. We celebrated the goolish holiday by... eating yummy homemade treats, having friends over, going to Abe's Aunts house... Going to my niece Nicole's friend birthday party dressed in our costume (okay so Abe missed out on that party... I know who wouldn't want to go hang out w/ 10 four year old little girls!??!)
And then we were planning on going all dressed up to our ward's trunk or treat but missed out on that fun b/c of a last minute invite to the 2009 Governors Gala... which I must say was fabulous!
And on Sunday we officially celebrated my niece Nicole's birthday. Here she is opening the globe that Abe and I gave her. She loved it... what a smarty pants she is!! She's only four and already asks where places are in the world. I just love that girl to pieces!
