This past week has been pretty wonderful. Of course, it began with General Conference.

When I was younger, I remember just thinking it was a time for naps and we didn't have to go to church. Now I feel like I just can't enough. I think it's a really cool feeling to picture all of the members all around the world dedicating their time to hear from the brethren. I am greatful for the opportunity I had to be edified and to learn.

On Tuesday, we got to go see our FAVORITE band:

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nate and I have always wanted to see these guys in concert and both never have had the chance. We bought the tickets back in the summer, and have been so excited! It was by far one of THE BEST concerts I have ever been to. They were such entertainers, but of course, we didn't expect anything less. My sister Stacey was there too, and I always have a good time when she was around. I havent been to a show in a long time, and I'm beginning to think I am too old for this stuff; I am still recovering from not getting enough sleep that night. Wouldn't take it back though!

I still love my job, really. I don't know if there is a better way to spend the hours in the day and get paid for it. Every day is a good day, and I look forward to going, just not getting out of bed in the morning cold!

Nate is working really hard in school; there are jsut not enough hours in the day. So of course, what does he take out of his schedule so he can spend more time with schoolwork/research? Sleep! The guy never sleeps, I swear. But I sure do, cause there is no point in me waiting up for him at night and I have nothing else better to do. Last night, I think I was in bed at about 9:35; I am awesome!

I am excited for the weekend. The plan is to go to the Temple, go see a movie, grocery shop, winter proof our house, and complete the decorating of our house-finally. :) Hopefully, we get to do it all (or I get to do it all, cause let's be honest, Nate will probably just be doing homework). Enjoy the weekend! All you Loganites, watch out for the coming snow.

PS anyone have any really great, simple, nonexpensive ideas on what I can dress up as for Halloween in my office???

I'm so glad you guys had fun! That's awesome you got to go. I miss our concert days. Good times!

Do you have a Savers in Logan??? Rob and I got our costumes there for super cheap.

Weezer??? Me jealous. Our last 'real' concert was a bunch of french pop stars who apparently rose to the ranks through their equivalent of american idol called 'star academie'. Oh, and james blunt was there, but I can't stop laughing at him long enough to enjoy the music.

Thanks for going to cold stone the other night! It was GREAT!!! We should make that a tradition....once a month...Sara, Kym(and Riley?) going to cold stone. For some grand Halloween ideas that would be cheap check out my sis-in-law's blog...www.tsasmith.blogspot.com She is the QUEEN of Halloween. Hopefully I'll have some fun news to share with you this week!!! Have a good one yourself!

The fact that it is snowing already is lame. But what is more lame is that I did not join you at that concert! Weezer is one of our fave bands too. I told Ross we should get tickets, but he spent the money getting me tickets to SYTYCD instead. What a sweet husband....sort of...I would have really liked to have seen Weezer! Oh well. Hopefully we will have the opportunity again and we will be the old weirdos there listening with ya ;)

Tape quarters on your back and go as a 'quarterback' OR saran wrap a paper plate to your belly and go as 'leftovers'. Love you! Chris
