Yes, I'm a huge fan of the Twilight series. I was one of those people who went to see it at 12 a.m. showing on Friday. Cony has not read any of the books and probably won't. However, he has been getting girls (teeny poppers-or young college girls) asking to have their photos with him and compliment after compliment saying he looks like Edward. Seriously, I have lost count at this point at how many times... So this morning we were late for church but I found myself not being able to walk out the door without having my hair done, because I do not want to be one of those girls where others are wondering how I got such a good looking guy. You know the type? I'm ashamed to admit it but I have wondered that myself with a few couples. While thinking this, I realized I'm getting a slight complex. (Please note, I do not say these things looking for compliments or such words of ALL!)

But since reading the book I always felt Cony was my Edward. I would without a second thought become immortal to be with him.

Not much..

I hate when I think of a clever title for my post and forget it. Forgetting happens way too easily for me. Is it possible to get Alzhemier's at 28?

I love Halloween. Maybe because it's right before my birthday, or the time of year. I don't know but I love it. So when it was mandatory to dress up for Halloween I was thrilled! I didn't win the contest however I have a goal to win it next year!

I realize it's late but wanted to share my $.99 Halloween decoration we made.. I call it the 'Spider Tree'.. original I know.

It's been an emotional week. I turned 28 and that day was not easy for a couple of reasons. Mostly because mom called me and sang me Happy Birthday and it hit me that dad wasn't singing along with her. It brought up a lot of emotions that I was not expecting. I have some really great friends that cheered me right up. Even if they didn't know I needed the cheering. We got home from dinner and the house was decorated and filled with all my favorite people. Not only was that a surprise but so was my cake... the best birthday cake anyone has ever made me.

I also feel that Satan has been working over time on Cony and myself. Will we ever make it to the temple? I have hope that we will make it but we are both fighting our own demons and hopefully we will come ahead together. Through all my unstable emotions I feel very fortunate to have him in my life. We have a love that I feel some won't ever experience in life. Clearly we aren't perfect and I hope it hasn't seemed like I'm painting that type of picture.

Speaking of pictures, on Sunday we went on a walk on a secret trail that I found and it was gorgeous. It was a perfect way to spend the Sabbath.
