"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting,and autumn a mosaic of them all."- Stanley Horowitz

September-


The beginning of September I got my bottom two wisdom teeth taken out.......yeah it was as awesome as you're thinking! This was slightly uneventful other than one side of my face swelling larger then the other, so I looked sorta like half of Kanye West! Also props to Angie who gets the roomate of the year award! She was kind enough to take care of me, make sure I took my meds on shedule, and get me fresh frozen veggie packs for my face! Best Roomie EVER!




My buddy Callie came to visit and we had a little reunion with her, Crystal, and Lena (My old high school besties!)......so thankfully I have proof of my super sweet chipmunk face! Memories frozen in time!







Funnest part of the month.........Memorial day weekend in Seattle seeing the sights and hitting up Bumpershoot to see Drake and Mary J. Blige!



Sunday before the festival we hit up "Chopsticks" this piano bar Michelle told us about and I got to sit on the piano a sing a little diddy for the people! probably the greatest rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart  any of them have ever heard!!!!!......and i'm being completley sarcastic, it was pretty awful, but I gotta sit on the piano, so it was a win for me!


Seattle was typically rainy, so it was cold and slightly miserable at times.....





but once Drake hit the stage I think we were all ready to party!



Just thinking about this turns me in to a 14 yr. old girl......Drake is fly.... that's all I gotta say about that!

  and also can I just say Mary J is like one of the greatest singers of our generation! She was AMAZING!

I wish you could have heard Rachel and I singing along to "I'm goin' Down" which is one of my all time favorites, or us ladies gettin' "....crunk upon, have fun upon up in this dancery"

Singing and Dancing along to your favorite songs live, is the BEST!



Wisdom Teeth and all September was SWEET!



October.

The beginning of the month my Grandma Schaat passed away

My family and I road tripped to Rexburg for her funeral........ being in Rexburg again and reconnecting with my Mom's side of the family was wonderful, It was a sad time, but it was a good time.




I wanted to do something sort of epic for Halloween, so I set a goal in September to come up with 5 costumes and 5 different parties to attend.

Here is how I did...


Monday Oct. 25th (Family Home Evening Halloween Carnival)


Madame Chula- The Fortune Teller



I made the activities committee let me have a booth at the carnival to give me an excuse to dress up!


Costume #1 CHECK!


Thursday Oct. 28th- Big Bend Halloween Dance

tried my hand at a Snooki costume........think I pulled it off pretty well!



That's me with my buddies Haunani, and Hayley!




Let's play which snookie is which!



True story this picture does not do my fake tan justice!



Best part is also the clothes (including the gold chain jacket) all came from my closet.....not my dress up bin.....JEALOUS? Man I shoulda been from Jersey!




COSTUME #2 Check!



Friday Oct. 29th- Singles Ward Dance @ Today's Generation Dance Studio

America's Next Top Model inspired this next costume.



I was the designer Betsey Johnson






I realized it was a risky costume, because most people would think I was either an 80's chick or a Herajuku girl of somekind, but I thought she would be a fun person to imitate...plus angie dug it, so what other approval did I need! :)



Here's me with some of the peeps! Mike, Tom, Julian, Joe, Me, and Hayley!

Nette and I EXTREME CLOSE UP!



Costume #3 CHECK!




Saturday Oct. 30th- Saucy Hog Costume Contest

I hit up the Hog for 1 reason and 1 reason only! To win me some MONEY!

All these years, and all these costume parties I've been in charge which meant no reward for my sweet sweet get ups!


But not this year I vowed! This year I was gonna win something if I had to punch a baby to do it! I had hoped luck would strike early at the Big Bend Dance, but no such luck.....the bar was my last hope! SO I pulled out the big guns!



I was a Sushi Roll!



Let me break this down for you......this costume cost me all of 2 dollars! I got the idea from a magazine at work! I smuggled some supplies from the office, mooched some freebies from the safeway deli, hit up the dollar store for a headband and balloons and the rest was found around the house, then with some packing tape and a hot glue gun, my sister and I created this little work of art!





I made it in to the top 3, my competition was The Madhatter and Alice (rented costumes mind you :) ) and a guy in a pink leotard with a dog collar on and a mattress strapped to his back (it was a bar remember) and I thought I had lost it there, because I figured people where too drunk to think my sushi roll was cute and endearing.......but luckily with a little crowd hyping....... I beat out the S&M guy but still lost to the Madhatter and Alice! I guess people where too wasted to appreciate my 2 dollar costume, but Oh well I got 2nd place and a $50 dollar gift certificate to the BBQ depot, and truthfully I was just excited I won something! 


Mission Accomplished!

Costume #4 CHECK!




Sunday Oct. 31st- Church?

Ok so I didn't exactly hit the mark I was shooting for but I did attend 5 parties....the dress up was questionable.

I rocked these babies all day



And I had some friends over for dinner and games after church and we all rocked the shades and played scattegories





So was it a success....................I'd say YES!



One year Halloween will be a week long celebration....mark my words!





2 more months......too many good things to fit in this post! Can you hold on for 1 more?

Has anything ever bothered you in life? Do you
have any problem you need to solve? A pending
court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to
the world of miracles and wonders, there are
supernatural treasure and power to liberate
mankind from all afflictions. Why cant you live a
life of your dream? Why must you work so hard
and yet earn so little? Why cant you be happy
with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I
promise your life will never be the same
again.If you find no relevance in the help I offer
I solemnly appeals do not be vindictive and go
in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
angels guide you. All inquiries should be
