|Before the game--I was trying to think positively.|
On the long walk home from the game, I told Nate that he opened me up to a whole new world of pain when he started me watching BYU football. (I always went to the games when I was in school, but mostly for the Cougar tails--amazing.) Those cougars kill me.
And here I am talking about them when I said I wasn't going to. Do any of you do that? Nate will bring something up and I'll say, "I just don't want to talk about it." Then it's ALL I can talk about.
So besides football, life has been pretty good lately. I've kinda become obsessed with our ward. I have to admit that I was nervous about having my neighbors also be my ward members. I've never really been one to like having people involved in all aspects of my life. But I'm actually loving it. Our little ward/neighborhood kinda has a Gilmore Girl-Stars Hollow feel going on. Neighbors come drop off vegetables from their gardens and we swap recipes and we run into each other when we are out on walks and we have Sunday dinners together and last night we were even invited to a CandyLand luau. I'm not sure how those two fit together, but I think it's genius. Any way, we just really lucked out with our ward.
This weekend Nate and I (mostly Nate) finished a few projects around the house that we have been putting off for months. Makes me so happy. We tend to work in fits and starts when it comes to home projects, but getting something done just seems to give us more inspiration and motivation. (The only thing we really lack at this point is money.) I really love our home. I love the vibe. I love when people walk in and say how much they love the way it feels. (I think that is why I never post pictures--I am not a good enough photographer to capture the "feel.") Now if I could only tackle the yard. At this point I am just going with the fact that it will be covered in snow in no time. Ugh. That thought makes me cringe. Luckily for me it's only fall. I love everything about the fall--food, holidays (including my birthday and our anniversary),
Well that's enough rambling for a Monday morning. There are too many things on my to do list that I need to get to. But at least I can check off blogging. ;)
