Perpetually Unemployed

So, I have come to the conclusion that I don't think anyone will ever hire me for a job. Ever.

Now that that is out of my system, let me just say that I am smarter, harder-working, and just overall more amazing than I must appear in interviews. Seriously. Who knows, maybe they think I am just too good to work at their company. (sigh)

Well, any suggestions?

Anyways, new topic. Obsessions.

I am currently obsessed with thinking about, googling, reading about, talking about, and basically forcing Christian to listen to me about the following topics:



one. babies. I mean who is married, mormon, living in utah and NOT obsessed with them?!



two. buying a new car. namely buying me a car. I know that I don't have a job, any money, or even a reason for a second car. but I want one and I want it now, especially so that we can drive home for Christmas without dying on the snowy mountain roads.



three. pet-friendly apartments. basically the impossible dream. so far, I have found only 2 apartment complexes in provo that allow pets, and I have been looking for a while. I mean is it really that unreasonable to want a nice apartment that will let me have a small puppy. I guess so. unless anyone out there in cyber-space knows something I don't know, I guess we will have to wait until we actually own a place to live. sad thought.



four. puppies. i know, i know. practically the same as good-ole number 4. But i can't seem to get enough of stalking the cuties at the pounds. I mean look at this adorable little guy...


I think you see my point. or maybe not, either way... i want one.

Indeed, there are many more obsessions to add to this list but I will stop. Not only for brevity but also to preserve my appearance of sanity. So... what are you obsessed with?

Empty Nesters

Photos from when Mom and Dad came to release the last of their flock to Utah (aka Steve going to college) and officially become empty-nesters ...



Christian has gotten in the habit of stealing loads of toothpicks from restaurants and stashing them like a squirrel stashes nuts ... i think there is a pile of them in every purse I own.


Sad to see Mom and Dad go...



We love you, Goodwood

Just in Time for Halloween


actually, this was like a month ago but oh well...

The Greatest Show On Earth!



Here are some pictures from our trip to the Circus last weekend. I was pretty excited because I haven't ever been to the circus and it ended up being even better than I thought it would be. It was just so amazing ... I would definitely recommend it to anyone!



The flag for the National Anthem




I loved the elephants!




Us before the show started



This was at the beginning ... I love how the elephants hold each others tails when walking!

There are 7 motorcycles in here ... it was so crazy. It looked absolutely impossible after they had started with only 4 motorcycles but then they did 7. And no one even died!

Overall, I give the circus 2 thumbs UP!
