When I woke up this morning I came downstairs to see Kelsi playing with Norah... in her Halloween costume. Yep, she wore it all day and it was the most adorable thing ever!!!! The day was spent lounging around, listening to Broadway music, making my costume and getting ready to head over to Larsons for some trick or treating.

The trick or treaters :) Alex was planning on being Peeta. I told him I would have cried for joy if he had done it, so he is doing it next year. It's happening. But instead he was an Arab. What a guy!

Meet Jade (or Jay, they don't know if it is a boy or girl yet). She/he was enjoying climbing up my back. It was pretty entertaining!

All in all, a great Halloween. Hope you all were safe and enjoyed your evening!

This weekend has been go-go-go! I've been literally running around like a chicken with my legs cut off (Sons of Provo anyone??!). My parents are away for the week so Andrew, Kelsi and Norah moved in for the week. They call it babysitting, I call it entertainment. Anyway back to my weekend: Midterm on Friday, fro-yo, studying and apples to apples on Saturday, breakfast party, VT, church, and stake meetings on Sunday. I genuinely intended on working on my assignment that is due on Wednesday, but never got around to it. I thought I was going to make time to sew my Halloween costume, and it still hasn't happened.
Today was a good day though. Work was stressful, but taking a knife to a pumpkin is always a good stress reliever :)

Things I would really like to buy right now.
This Tshirt is just incredible. No arguments allowed.
I've been meaning to get the entire collection of James Dean for a couple years now. I just love him

I haven't bought a new charm from Pandora in a long time!! They are just all so cute!
Now this is actually an item that I need. I had to get rid of both of my winter jackets since I lost a lot of weight in the past 8 months. I'm thinking of getting this one in burgundy :)
Also another necessity. I need a pair of winter boots that are going to last me a few years. I'm sick of replacing my Uggs every single year!!!!

I've decided to hold off on the purchases for now. I need to focus on Christmas shopping and saving. Except for the boots and coat. I need those before the first snowfall!

I had midterms. I know I only have one so I shouldn't be complaining, but I would much rather do an assignment than take a multiple choice exam. I find I learn more when I am put in a situation to do my own research and write about it, as opposed to studying slides and notes for a test. Bleh.
On a better note I have officially found the songs on Taylor's new album that will constantly be on repeat for me.



(This one is obviously about Ed Sheeran. Awkward..)

Again I'm kind of bummed about her album as a whole, but these songs are definitely the saving grace for me!

My mom has worked at a used bookstore for the past couple years, and even though she decided to quit, she is still extremely close with the owner. So on Tuesday she got an interesting phone call from Diane. A customer came into the store with a box of books. While sifting through them she found a Book of Mormon from 1923!!!! She called my mom saying she wondered if my mom would be interested in having it. Of course my mom said yes.
My favourite part about it is the letter inside. This book was sent from a mission president to an immigration officer. I love that missionary work hasn't changed. Yes there is now technology and all that jazz, but there is nothing more simple and profound than sending a Book of Mormon to someone with your testimony inside.
I know I have said this countless times, but I love fall. The colours, the weather, apple cider, and boots. I just love it. Also can we please just talk about the fact that Christmas is 2 months away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't even handle this right now! Too much!!!

Ok I have a confession. I have only liked 3 of the 6 songs Taylor pre-released, but I just couldn't not buy her CD. Every other October I get excited for to hear her songs, but for some reason a few of them have fallen short for me. Maybe it's the fact that she collaborated a lot for this album, but there are just a few songs that just don't work for me. I mean she's 22 years old, and I wished her songs related to me the same way they did when I was in high school, but they don't anymore. They're just sweet songs, but I don't have the emotional attachment I used to with them.

Such a shame.

Today was Stake Conference so we came home from church at 1, as opposed to the usual 5:30 (YSA ward is from 2-5). We were able to spend time together, play games, and enjoy the company of the Symonds and Alex. It's been a crazy weekend, and it's going to be a crazy week with assignments, midterms, working and babysitting. But I am ready for it after the incredible conference we had! :)

He's home. 2 years and month to the day! Brigitte and I were not at all expecting him to be at institute tonight, so when my brother turned to me and said: "Ty-Ki is here", I looked up frantically. As soon as I saw his face the waterworks started. I just couldn't hold them back! I made a bee line for him and hugged the life out of him. And surprisingly there was zero awkwardness! It was as if he never left. Walking to class with him was complete deja vu. Even if he is off to BYU in 2 1/2 months, I am spending every free moment with him. I'm just glad to have my best friend home!
Today was just incredible in general. Goes to show that even when the weather is crappy, days can still be beautiful!! Spent the day downtown, was reunited with my best friend, kind of sort of went on a double date with my brother and his wife and someone else :) , then picked my dad up from the airport. So don't stop me now. Because I'm having a good time, having a good time.

One week. It's been one week since I was Eponine. Time has just flown by. I can't even believe October is almost over!!!! I just don't understand!
2 years. A long time on paper, and long time when it comes to the changes that have happened over those 2 years, but in reality I don't even know where they have gone!! 2 years ago I was dating a boy who just went on his mission a few months ago. 2 years ago I met a boy that would break my heart, but taught me so much about love. 2 years ago I was starting the hardest year of my life, but was able to learn so much about myself. 2 years ago my brother met his wife and now they have the cutest baby girl. 2 years ago I couldn't stand YSA, now I am in the RS presidency and loving every moment. 2 years ago I said farewell to my best friend, and today we get to say hello again.

Tonight was spent looking through pictures and videos of our missionary friends. We just heard the news.
Tyler is back in Canada!
After 2 years he is finally back!!!! I might be hyperventilating just a little.

My phone has some entertaining things on it. Pictures, conversations, quotes and notes from random times. These little things are some of my ways of coping with sad news. Last night was no exception. I was on an emotional roller coaster. I finally got asked something I've been waiting for for weeks. And then two bombs dropped. I find it ironic that only 20 minutes after my happy moment, I found out heart breaking news from two people that are so close to my heart. I'm trying so hard not to be bitter and angry. When someone hurts me, I get over it, but if you hurt someone I love it is so hard for me to forgive!
And to add my confusion of emotions, my best friend comes home from his mission today. I think today will be a "eating ice cream veg" day!

No matter what the season, I have always loved Ottawa. But there is just something special about Ottawa in the fall. The colours of the leaves just bring the city to life! I had a 4 hour break in between classes and institute, so I decided to bus to Parliament Hill and walk around. I have so many memories, with so many people. Jess and Charlotte, Tyler Laura and Derek, Kyle, Alex, The New Era photoshoot, Dayla and Morgan, Behind Sapphire boys, my 20th birthday, and so much more!
