This is something that My mom would think is the CUTEST IDEA EVER!!! AND secretly I'd agree. How fun to create a cook book of all your families favorite recipes?! Neat right?!

Yup... It's One of THOSE day's.

You just have to love her. She Knows. Haha
It's one of those day's that I really miss Home. Not just the house, or my family. Home itself. I miss how I feel when I'm back home in Farmington. The feeling that it never really changes too much and its FULL absolutely FULL of memories. I lived in Farmington for 18 years of my life. I had the best childhood with the best friends and cousins. I loved my high school and had more fun than you are supposed to. It's also around this time of year that I miss being in choir, Christmas music actually makes me kinda sad because I remember all the wonderful Christmas Concerts my choir gave. I miss life when it was simple and I knew that Thanksgiving meant that all of us cousins and family would get to have dinner together. I knew that I would get to see everyone like I always did. Now I'm lucky if I get to see some of my family once or twice a year. And It's not any ones fault. Things change, life happens, we all move away. I guess I am feeling that I took ALL my family for granted because they were so close and always accessible. But now I'm lucky if I get to see my own sister once or twice a year and my cousins even less. The Holidays make me very sad. I love ALL of my family so much and I wish we would all stay in contact better. I'm just as guilty and I know its a 2-way street. I just miss my ENTIRE Family During the Holidays.
I'm So excited to be seeing my Older sister for Thanksgiving! I can't hardly wait. I really wish she and I were closer together(distance-wise) She is someone that I have always looked up to. And I have missed her a lot recently. Can't wait! :)

Then came 2009....... I was still in Farmington during this time because this was the year my got sick and all that jazz. THUS... For the ward halloween party I was just a AZ Sun's Fan... but for some kooky Family party... I was a all the random stuff I could find in my closet thrown into a futuristic outfit.. lookin... thing.. :)

Then last year(2010) as previously reported we went to VEGAS for Halloween! We went to a Rachel's Families party and then the FRIGHT DOME... which I can tell you was probably the scariest thing I've ever seen... like seriously! I was a Warrior Princess I guess hahaha anyways it was FUN!

Its getting CHILLY!

I grew up in Northern New Mexico. We get snow all the time in the Winter. Growing up I was totally used to the snow and cold, so much that I used to walk to the bus stop in flip flops in December when it was freezing and there was snow on the ground. I would have to go out and start my car in the morning to defrost my windshield (Or my Daddy would hee hee) and when worse came to worst I would have to scratch the ice off. Now I'm sure you're all wondering where this is going. I'll tell you where.
I have lived in AZ for the past 5 years. I used to go home for the summers and winters so I wasn't too much of a baby... Things have changed. I officially live full time in AZ and am working on getting all my stuff changed to AZ. Going home now is TORTURE! I have no idea how I ever, EVER even thought about walking in snow in flip flops?! what was wrong with me?! haha I have become totally and 100% acclimated to AZ weather. And Although I LOVE the snow and Its fun to play in. I HATE being cold! I would rather be sweating and melting than to be freezing with cold toes and a runny nose. You may be wondering where this is coming from. WELL.....  THIS YEAR My sister and Bro-In-Law both work Retail.. thus for thanksgiving they both are REQUIRED to work black Friday.. THUS they can't come home for Thanksgiving, THUS we are going to them.. where you may be asking is "there" ... Hold on to your hats my fellow AZ heat seekers... WELLINGTON UTAH..... Yup Not only am I headed up to the FREEZING COLD! I'm going to WELLINGTON. I can say that I've never been there and maybe I have PREJUDGMENTS.. But If its smaller than MY HOMETOWN.... it's SMALL... there will literally be nothing to do there! AND my sister has to work both the Friday and Saturday.... what the heck am I supposed to do? I plan on staying in my pajamas and crafting and sewing all day with me mum. NOW don't get me wrong I am SUPER DUPER excited to see my sisters new house and see all the cute decorations she has done and all that fun stuff... I'm just not looking forward to the cold.. NOPE not at all. BUT that's okay because I LOVE HER! and its not her fault... Its her HUSBANDS fault... :P jk ANYWAYS I'm going to be searching through my closet for anything that constitutes as "Winter Clothing" SIGH!
This will be me.
