We had a good halloween--we rocked togas like nobodys business.
We had a few awesome...and a few bad football games.
And we (I) have been ringing in the holiday season by listening to as much Christmas music as humanly possible and eating the occasional chocolate orange (l.o.v.e.).
I havent been blogging because I let my sister borrow my computer for a few weeks so she could surf the web to find a house to buy back East. (lame. I'll forever blame Jeff for relocating them to the east coast).
Aaaand I hate blogging from Geoff's computer-so i've given up blogging all together.
I'd share pictures but its more bothersome to upload them to Geoff's computer too.
(I made an exception and decided to break my bond of silence from the blogisphere tonight)
Can you believe its already Thanksgiving week? Everything is going by so quickly!
I ordered a sweet little holiday dress from Ann Taylor--that wait however is not going by so quick.
I just want my dress already.
This Thanksgiving Geoff and I are spending it with 100 other large, hungry men--some people refer to them as the football team.
No exceptions for practice even on Thanksgiving.
Thankfully they are still going to feed them a thanksgiving feast at the Football Center.
Not quite your typical thanksgiving--but its a warm meal!
I'm so thankful.
for Geoff. Our family. My job. My religion, and all the little and big things my Heavenly Father blesses me with.
September has been good to me. On the 1st of the month I completed my last final. Ever. 8 days later my final grades were posted and submitted. And....I did it! I successfully had the lamest summer of my life, but I GRADUATED. From college. It's fantastic. As for right now I dont pity anyone in school, but come the end of this month when Geoff starts up again I know I'm going to be totally jealous. I really like school--not all of it--but most of it was pretty fun and engaging. But for now I feel relieved and can't wait to get settled into my new working woman lifestyle. Our insurance cards came in the mail yesterday and I felt just as accomplished, if not more, as when I got an A on my marketing plan. And that's a big deal because I poured my heart and soul into that thing.
Me, the day I graduated. Because you were just dying to see.
and this might have happened too.
We've managed to fit in some fun this month too.
Geoff and I went to The Dalles/Portland for a bit.
We both agree that this is the best milkshake we have ever had.
The conquistador: chocolate, caramel and carmelized hazelnuts.
To. Die. For.
We couldnt help but snag these little guys too.
Geoffs was a chocolate orange owl and mine was a chocolate hazelnut frakenstein laced with pop rocks.
We went to the farmers market in The Dalles too.
Poor Geoff didnt fit in the car.
Larry shows off his new flowers.
I bought Sweet Cherry jam and I'm saving it just for you Shellene.
Its crazy delicious.
A couple days ago I paid my brother with a mediocre dinner in return for painting my bedroom.
The whole family came over and Levi asked Geoff if he wanted to armwrestle.
Funniest thing ever.
As for now Im spending the rest of my time gearing up for the first home game! Im so excitied for football to start in Corvallis and for all the fun we are going to have this year. I love that we get to spend so much time with family this time of year.
Today is the day. The first day of camp. Hes had his physical. Weighed in. Fed a tasty meal of steak and lobster. Went to his meetings and hopefully will come home soon.
Sometimes I think, this is going to be really, really long. We've only knocked out one season in his football career. But then I stop and think "How cool is it that I get to experience all of this with him?"
Right from the beginning we've been in this together. Its going to be long, its been hard and its a huge blessing.
Im so glad to have his college years. wish us luck.
