a list of things on my mind

-casey and i saw the cutest couple in the temple the other day! imagine 2 super old, frail, wrinkley, hunched over, smiling people walking hand in hand, one with a cane, dressed beautifully in white. it was the most precious thing i've ever seen! as casey and i passed them i wanted to instantly be them so badly! all those years of experience, love, life behind them, time to go to the temple and not be rushed, and they still cherished each other- still best friends. i want to be them. i told casey probably 10 times during our little walk how i wanted us to be that couple someday! he smiled at me bc i think he secretly wants to too inside :)

-i've started playing flag football with some women in my ward this week! SO. MUCH. FREAKING. FUN. i'm no sports diva at all, but it's just so fun to get out there with other women in the ward to play sports, have fun, get a little bruised and just be together laughing! plus we've got some awesomely beastly girls on our team (which is a compliment) which makes us better and have more fun. i love love love love it. you can bet your bottom dollar i'll be doing this again. ps- another reason it's more fun to play sports like this than it was in young women's bc a) everyone wants to be out there playing together, not being forced b) people are better than they were when they were 12 and 14 :)

-i think i like the band never shout never so much bc sometimes they sound like my beloved format that no longer exists. listening to the format brings me back to jr high, which for me, actually had so many great memories. i love the format so much.

-i still love my carpet to be vacuumed like everyday, it's so nice to have our own vacuum again. i think that's what it'll feel like when

-casey, i'm sorry my feet are stinky :( it's not me. it's my dane shoes mixed with being very sweaty mixed with those one shoes i always wear lately bc they make my arches feel better, i sorry

-talking about shoes. In the past 4-5 months i bought my 1st 2 pairs of black flat shoes (i'm a brown shoe kind of girl but have most black jackets and no brown ones! it hasn't been working so well). i bought the 1st pair for my job. they're ugly-ugly old woman work style shoes to be exact, but they're incredibly comfortable and i love putting them on my feet. oh, and there was no breaking them in- they were miraculous from the beginning. the 2nd pair i recently bough were normal wear- closed toed black shoes to match my black jackets when it's cold. they sure are cute- but they sure do hurt! no arch support, super stiff, there's other problems with them too, i just can't think of them :) moral of the story: i prefer my ugly old work style shoes over my cute ones very much so. why can't they make oober cute comfortable shoes!?

-i love free samples. this week and last, i've gotten free samples in the mail everyday almost everyday! glad bags, kashi bars, laundry detergents, breathe right strips, ear plugs, granola bars, lotions, shampoos, pringles, chocolate, etc :) also, the free samples come with coupons which makes me happy :) you should sign up for them if you have the time bc getting free samples in the mail makes you feel so good!
-lately i've been craving fries! i've always loved fries but always stayed away from them because i know how bad they are for you (i'd rater eat unhealthy sweets than salts). for instance, i forgot to mention that when we picked up those ice cream cones at mcdonald's after nickel city last weekend, i asked for fries too...at that moment, they were so good!!!! they seriously tasted better than the ice cream!

-the color combos [red, white, blue], [green and red], [purple and gold] make me very very happy

-i miss my nieces and nephews so bad! thanksgiving and christmas couldn't come sooner! we are so lucky to have at least 1 of them here in utah with us who i still wish i got to see more often! (soon to be a 2nd!). 

-everyday i love trees, grass, shrubs, flowers, sprinkler systems, and fertilizers more and more everyday!

-i want to watch hocus soon

-isn't it so annoying when you have a version of one phone and then they come out with a 2nd version of that phone and change around a few very important keys (like space bars etc) and you can never text right on that phone?

-we bought our harry potter tickets yesterday. yes,  a month early. we are so happy with our decision :)

-fall is the best. seriously. seriously! the trees are beautiful: red,orange, gold, and even the green as the backdrop. the air is cool and crisp just right for playing outside and dressing warmly. i think one of the prettiest scenes is all the fallen leaves on green grass. it's my absolute favorite. i wish byu grounds didn't clean up the leaves so fast, i want to play in them!

-i still want a pet. i would either love to have a cute cuddly kitty- i love cuddly kitties, or a fun dog- casey would love a dog. it would just be so fun! (no worries landlord, we won't)

-not to self- never let the dishes get that far behind again.

-it rained for so long today- from 10 am til 5 pm. it was so nice

-we've decided we really love this stage in our lives. us. school. work. us. no set schedule, just us running to a bunch of things we want to do  (which is way too much) and laughing (most the time) as we go. we thoroughly enjoy playing with other people's kids and pets right now, but for the time being it's better to just be us. we love it.

QUESTIONS
- has anyone come across the problem with macs not uploading pictures very quickly (or at all) to blogger?
-has anyone come across the problem with arriving at the maximum amount of pictures allowed on your gmail photo account for when you upload photos to your blog? wondering what i should do bc i'm getting real close... (nicole i know you had this problem awhile ago...)
