Fun Fall Festivities

So this fall has been really great. I've loved not being in school and having more time to do things I enjoy and not stress over school so much. Dan has been working really hard to do well in school and we have been having a good time. I love the fall weather and we have a great park right by our apartment that we walk and run at a lot. We went over there on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago and had lunch and enjoyed the gorgeous weather and colors.Dan is really funny and this was after our walk, on the way home.
Pretty leaves!

I love fall so much I'm leaping with joy!
This is a little weird...I was walking at the park one day awhile ago and I saw this big group of people dressed up in medieval-type clothes and they were battling each other with padded swords, shields and bow and arrows! It was so crazy, but I didn't have my camera! When we had lunch at the park awhile later, I saw this poster! Sweeeeet.
I went with Shelley and her sister Haley and her girls to the Witches Night Out at Gardner Village. It was the first time for all of us and we had tons of fun. We didn't really go all out, but we definitely want to next year! So many women were there and the atmosphere was just really fun. Afterards, we went and made caramel apples with heath bars! So yummy!
Me and Laney.

We also went up to Logan to visit Shell and Brian and Thad! I love this sweet little boy!

Hween Birthday!

Well I had my big 23rd birthday on Halloween (best day for a birthday ever!). It was a super fantastic day and I just had a blast. I dressed up for work as a witch on the 30th. Of course I was the only one dressed up in my whole department because I work with a bunch of old guys who are party poopers. Haha, but they loved that I was dressed up and it was still really fun because a lot of other people in the company were dressed up. It's just a fun day!

On my actual birthday, Dan sang to me about a million times throughout the day and we had breakfast together then opened presents! We went to West Jordan and went fridge shopping! Very exciting :). But we found a good deal on a fridge so yay! We went to my parent's house and opened presents there as well. Then we all went to dinner at Cheesecake Factory! YUMMA! My sister was able to come from Cedar City so I was really happy about that! We had a delicious dinner and I got some incredible Godiva chocolate cheesecake! And the best part was that I had leftovers for Sunday!

We went trick-or-treating with our nieces in South Jordan and that's always fun. I think holidays are so much fun with kids around. They make things so fun and their excitement is contagious! I love it and I love all my nieces and nephews and I love doing fun things with them whenever we can. The rest of the evening was spent with my family! A busy, but wonderful day!
My witch costume and Dan as....nothing? He's not big on dressing up but I'm sure we'll have coordinating outfits one year if we go to a party or something!

Me and the kiddos before we left to go trick-or-treating. Emily was a warrior and ran everywhere! They were out late and got loads of candy!

My super awesome cheesecake! It was so freakin' good. So what if they spelled my name wrong? No biggie. :)

When I came home from work on Friday, there were a dozen beautiful roses waiting for me at home! Dan is a sweetie and did great on my presents this year. I can't wait to spend all the money I got from him and my parents for house stuff and clothes!
