HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  So tonight is daylight savings yay an extra hour of sleep... I wish... I get to get an hour of overtime instead which I will take because that is better than sleep.  Brandon and I had big plans for Halloween we were all excited last night.  We were going to make cookies and carve pumpkins...  Well apparently when you live in Provo you can't wait until last minute to buy pumpkins.  We went to Maceys no pumpkins... so than we went to Smith's and the same thing no pumpkins well there was one left but that was way to depressing to even think about buying... so we went to Albertsons and again no pumpkins.  I was a little disappointed I really wanted to carve pumpkins.  So we went back home and had dinner than I went to get a couple more hours of sleep before work.  I was so disappointed that we didn't get pumpkins... But Brandon was a good sport because he still made the cookies while I was sleeping.

Mosaic Pictures

So I was on Facebook playing around and I saw that you could make mosaic pictures so I did a couple...

I like this one because it has a lot of the pictures of before we were married and after we were married on our wedding day.

Once again same concept of the pictures.

Same thing again just another photo...

And than I saved this one for last it's me, Erin, and Erica just before Erin left on her mission.  I got photo's of Erin, Erica, and me to be put in this one.  You can tell we won't know what to do with out her for a year and a half.  But I think it will only make us stronger. Miss you Erin!!! and Erica I know your married now but can you still come out to play every once and a while ha ha love you girls.

So I have been thinking lately that I need to share some of my favorite quotes that have gotten me through some hard times and good times…

“Do something every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do.” – Christopher Morley

I like this quote because it reminds me that you do need to do something that would make you happy. I think if you do something silly everyday that means you are going to either laugh at yourself or your going to smile because you did something that made you step out of your comfort zone. I like my little bubble that I have put around myself that when I’m in new situations it throws me through a loop. I become quiet and keep to myself. But the instant I do something that I think is awkward I loosen up and you get to see the real me come out.

“I have wept in the night for the shortness of sight that somebody’s need made me blind; but I never have yet felt a twinge of regret for being a little too kind.” – Unknown

This quote helps me to remember that when I’m kind I will never feel the regret after wards of being kind. It is when I do something to make someone upset that I start to feel guilty for the things which I did. So when we are doing good acts of kindness we know we will not walk away feeling regret for helping someone out even if we don’t have the time to do it we will always walk away feeling better. It is when we tell someone no after they have asked for our help do we feel guilty. I don’t know about anybody else but it takes a lot of courage for me to ask somebody for help and when it does happen it is really hard when somebody tells me no. But when they say yes that is the greatest feeling knowing that I can ask for help and receive it.

“God does notice us, and He watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.” –Spencer W. Kimball

I love this quote it has been one of my favorites for a lot of years. I think it is because when I’m at my lowest and I need strength to carry on and I have been praying to my Heavenly Father for comfort and strength. I always hope that it will happen right away so I start to carry on with my life and it is not until I start telling people about what is happening in my life that my answers to my prayers are answered. I have a friend named Tim he just got married in August and I was so glad I could be there for them to see them get married in the Washington D.C. Temple. It was an amazing wedding and it helped me to remember what was said on my wedding day in the temple and what the sealer said to Brandon and I that touched my heart ever so much. Also my friend Tim helped me out when Brandon first left on his mission Tim would come over to my apartment to see how I was doing. I never thought he would do that I thought he was making those promises to Brandon just to be a good friend to Brandon. I didn’t think it was going to be promises to be one of my greatest friends I have had. Brandon has also helped me out tremendously before he left to go on his mission I started feeling doubts I think that is normal when you are about to say goodbye to a boyfriend for two years. Brandon watched me cry for hours on end telling him that I will have no friends once he leaves because he is the reason why I was friends with his friends is because I was his girlfriend. So that first Sunday Tim showed up to check up on me I knew that my Heavenly Father was watching over me even with just a simple friend showing up to see how I was doing made me feel like He was listening to me. In July Brandon and I went through a hard couple of weeks together. We found out we were expecting a baby in March and then only a week later to find out that I had a miscarriage it was hard for me and I know it was hard for Brandon. With everything that happened I’m glad that I can look on the Brightside of this experience because if I couldn’t I don’t know what I would be doing right now. Heavenly Father had sent a lot of people over to our house to give us comfort and so I still know that my Heavenly Father is watching us and helping us by letting others know our needs.

Costume Ideas?

So I know what I'm going to be for Halloween but Brandon is not so sure now. I'm going to be a black cat because I like dressing up as a cat. Brandon is undecided last Friday night we went to shopko and we bought him a hotdog costume but he is not sure now if that is what he wants to be. The other night when we were at wal-mart he saw a blind referee and wants to be that... so we need help should Brandon be a HOTDOG or A BLIND REFEREE?
