Its sad I know but....

So in case you didnt know, I Love Twilight. Ive tried to get Joel to love it as much as I do...but yeah thats not happening anytime soon. Ha anyways I am bored at work and stumbled across this new teaser trailer...and I wont lie I was about to die of excitement. Here is the link-
and here is another AMAZING one that I just found while writing this ha ha

I SOOOOO cannot wait for new moon! only like what...26 more days? AH!
ok ok so now onto real life happenings.

We went to a Halloween Party last night and it was so fun! The theme was famous couples so Joel and I went as Hercules and Meg (dont know if its historically accurate, but thats what Disney says so we went with it) Here are some pics taken on my phone (lost my camera in the move:( so they're kinda crappy)

Ha my sexy Hercules! We played a kind of how well do you know your spouse game and came in 2nd behind sean and katelin Bringhurst...not bad! ha ha then we had a pie eating contest! If you won you got to shove pie into your spouses face- so of course I reminded Joel that if he won I would kill him :) Luckily neither of us won (although I did put in a good effort and joel started getting worried i'd win towards the end!) But the pie was AMAZING so that was probably the best part ha ha

Look at him go! ha ha and on the next one you cant really tell but he has pie all over his face ha ha
Now its my turn- Ha I was really worried I was going to get pie in my hair

Now this was the last picture Joel took and as you can see still alot of pie- BUT I did get pretty dang close to that crust, and alot of pie in my nose.
After the Party we went with the Bringhursts to the Grand Stand of Terror in Blackfoot and it was so fun!!! Very good, I HIGHLY recommend you go!!
I Love Halloween!!! and Twilight!

The House Hunt is OVER

So we just accepted the counter offer on a house we LOOOOVE! Its been so discouraging these last 2 months looking at houses, and this one was such a breath of fresh air! I absolutely love it!

Only bad thing is we have to wait until November 20th to close :(

I have that same feeling that I did when I was little and I would go shopping with my mom and she would buy me something and say, "now you know you dont get this untill Christmans.." ha ha I want it now! But I guess that will give me time to plan how to decorate?

So here are some pics i stole off of the mls

Do you see that?? a DISHWASHER! ha ha none of the houses we looked at had a dishwasher- AND it has a giant pantry...not that I really spend much time in the kitchen, I just love having space to stick stuff! wahoo!

Change your life

So Joels mom rented this movie and we all (me, joel, his mom and dad) sat down to watch it the other night...joel and his dad thought it was lame and left to go play the wii and joels mom had to go pick up joels i ended up watching this movie by myself and it was a good thing because i was in tears! This movie is SOOOO good! I was a little skeptical because it is like a baptist/born again christian made movie (or something like that) but it was amazing. I was so blown away by the fact that all of the principles it talks about are all in line with what the church teaches. It is all about marriage and relationships and how to love others we need to serve them, and that to fully love others we need to love the savior and know his love...etc. SO GOOD! it seriously made me take a step back and look at my own marriage and made me want to be better! ah i really cant stress enough, YOU SHOULD WATCH THIS MOVIE.

Ok Ok ill admit the acting isnt the best, although it does have Kirk Cameron in it :) but if you can go into it excpecting that itll be even better!! I guarentee if you watch it with an open mind you will love it. ALSO is awesome. Im smiling just talking about it.

So we were supposed to close on our house today. But we ended up backing out at the last second. The whole time I had had bad feelings about it, but I kept telling myself it was because it was our first house and its a big step, that it was normal to have doubts. But there were so many red flags (things wrong with the house, things the seller did to cover things up..etc)

Joel and I have been praying to know whether we were making the right decision to buy it- and I was a little discouraged that I hadnt really gotten an answer. So I thought back to a John Bytheway talk about how sometimes not getting a "no" answer to your prayer is kind of like getting a "yes". So I figured it was a green light. But I couldnt shrug off all of the people telling us "there are too many weird things about the house..." "Too many red flags..." I found myself justifying buying the house despite those things. I would say well any house that old would have some things wrong, or we've already spent so much on the inspection and appraisal.....Basically I was looking at it emotionally rather than logically (which is what my dad and Joel kept telling me, but of course I said I wasnt.)

So Joel and I decided to go look at the house one last time yesterday evening. As we were walking through it we started talking about the things we did and didnt like about the house. AND started noticing some oddities. After Joel finished commenting on how when he walked through the center of the living room his head almost hit the bottom of the fan, he asked if I really thought we should buy the house. I immediatley heard, "No." Not from in my head- but like I HEARD it. Then as I thought, the word No, I felt...right inside. I cant really explain it- but when I said it outloud to Joel I knew that I had gotten my answer- I felt warm and good and relieved! and of course I became emotional and had to keep myself from crying. :)

This answer also put me into immediate despair as we walked back into our half packed, messy house that we have to be out of by Sunday.

But Joel, being the amazing man that he is, said we needed to get out of the house and just drive. So we did. And I cried. But the more we talked and started looking at other houses the better I felt. And when we got home it was like a huge weight of doubt that I had been carrying around with me was gone.

I still dont know how we are going to get everything out by Sunday or where its all going, but thats ok, I know we will figure it out. I am so thankful to have a loving Heavenly Father who KNOWS what is best for us and helps us get to it when we ask. I am also thankful for a husband who always knows what I need- how to get me back on track. :)
