Ryan's sister Alyssa is on CSI's volleyball team. On October 23rd they played our alma mater, CEU at Price. Of course, I couldn't miss an opportunity to go to Price. I haven't been back since college 3 1/2 years ago and I miss it! I drove down with Jess and Aaron and I'm sure they got sick of me talking about a simpler life at college. I wore my CEU shirt which didn't make Ryan's family very happy, but I justified it because their school colors are the same and they're both golden eagles. Close enough, right? Both teams played very well, but at the end CEU won. This was a big deal for them because, let's be honest, they're not very good. It was pretty awkward after that around the family and Alyssa and the team were pretty bummed, but all in all it's OK because last weekend Alyssa's team won the NJCAA National Championship! That is CSI's 9th National Championship! We're so proud of Alyssa and got to watch them win live online. What a great accomplishment!

What a hottie!

Some friends in our ward threw a fun Halloween party. Some games included family fued, jeopardy, and fear factor. I participated in Fear Factor by eating SPAM, which was the best option considering the others had to eat ketchup, garlic, and sardines. Boys against girls, I blame myself for our loss. Have you ever tried to chew and swallow SPAM? I gagged while it was going down and it almost all came back up! 

Rogue and Wolverine

Buddy the Elf and Jovie

Optimus Prime and Cindy Lou Who

Fear factor. Right before go!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and lots of good food!

P.S. I'm watching the Macy's Parade and don't worry, a friend from High School is a Rockette. My friends are so talented!

Stampin' Up

Here are the cards I made for Oct and Nov. The gray 'love' one is my favorite!

Syd and I went to Thriller, a tradition I love! This year was extra special because Molly is on Odyssey Dance Company. (Yea, we danced together in High School. I'd like to say that I'm as good as her, but a girl can dream, right?)

I love me some Molly! She = amazing...

Lil P's 1st birthday was a smash! Oh, and my sister made the entire cake, animals and all! It was delicious but my favorite was the cat.

Don’t even pretend that you don’t hit Twitter, Facebook, and all your favorite budget blogs every day. Please, who are you talking to here? We’re all in the same boat. But what if you could make money doing it? One of the girlies who hits That Went Well every day told me about a new site called Be This is evil genius: you get paid every time you visit one of those sites or dozens of others!

Sign up for your account with Be Ruby by clicking here and then  click-through to Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and such. You’ll earn a little bit each time you click through to a website. Plus, you’ll earn $0.10 each day that you just log in to the site.

Small change may feel like chump change–until you realize how much time you’re spending online! This is such a simple way to make it pay for itself!

My friend Adria had a baby in July. It took me 3 months to visit her, but I finally did. Little Isaac is so cute! He's all smiles and is such a great baby, just see for yourself!

Thanks to my friend's recommendation we ate at Central do Brasil a few weeks ago. Ryan's brother served his mission in Brazil with her husband so we took them along. It was very authentic and we had to have Aaron order for us. The best part of the night was when they broke out the karoake. Have you ever seen Brazilians sing Karoeke? It was awesome, and I was this close to getting up and singing myself.
Saturday night's are all you can eat pizza, so we plan to go back again. In the back of the restaurant there is a store so I bought some Pao de Queijo. The cooking instructions were in Portuguese so I had to use Babel Fish to translate. Some of the words didn't translate correctly so I had to guess on some things, but I think they turned out great!

After dinner we went to the crazy corn maze in West Jordan. Jess and I huddled together through the scary part while we entertained the guys with our running and screaming. We rocked the corn maze by going from #3 to #7 and skipping a few other numbers, not on purpose, but Ryan has a great sense of direction.
