I had a great birthday this year! 27 is not so exciting but I have a feeling it'll be a good year. :). Let's hope anyway. I went and visited one of my best friends Cindy that weekend. We only see each other maybe once a year. I have known Cindy 12 years. I count myself very blessed to have her in my life. We met in 9th grade. We were both new to the school. And the rest is history. I could not talk to Cindy for months or see her for a year but we seem to pick up where we last left off. She will be one of my life long friends. I love her very much! I arrived down in Orem on Friday October 3rd. We ate a delicious salad and reminisced! Her dear husband Bryan took care of her three kids and we had our "girl time". We went to a delicious sandwich shop and had a smoothie with our sandwich :). I purposely wore my University of Utah t-shirt to get a rise out of Cougar fans. I only got a few dirty stares :). We went shopping, and did more shopping and had a great time. On Saturday we did my favorite thing while I was down there. We went and visited her in-laws which was a lot of fun! :). Then we went to Gardner Village that evening with the kids. They have a lot of cute shops :). My favorite thing we did down there was we went on a carriage ride with a witch. It was so fun to see Erik, Grace and Kaden's reaction :). They had a fun time :). Then Sunday we went and visited Cindy's parents. That was a lot of fun. Everytime I see her mom she normally says how she thinks it neat that her kids still are in contact with their friends from high school. She didn't tell us the story this time :). We visited while the guys played Dungeons and Dragons :). I also got to see her brother Clifford and Cordell who were over there visiting. Cindy's parents and brother Clifford live in the most amazing neighborhood. It's so colorful and the houses are all so unique. We went on a long walk through the neighborhood. I told Cindy I would love to own a purple house in this neighborhood. I really want a house in that neighborhood! :). Then we went home. Monday morning people started texting me at 6am! My birthday was October 6th. I left Cindy's around 11am. She got new windows put in. :). (I am still waiting on pictures). I had an excellent time with Cindy! I can't wait to see her again! Then in the afternoon I went to lunch with Maryann. She took me to the Olive Garden. We split a piece of Pumpkin Cheesecake. It was delicious. I got my normal soup, salad and breadsticks like I normally do. We went shopping and I spent WAY TOO MUCH MONEY! I had dinner with my family that night. That was a lot of fun! That week I went to 7 different restaurants with 7 different friends :). And went 2 see the same movie twice! My favorites were going to the Pita Pit, The Greenery, and Red Robin (Thanks JESS)! I got very spoiled from my friends and family! I am very fortunate to have wonderful friends!
YAY! Football. As you most of you know I have University of Utah Football tickets. Currently we are 8-0! Woohoo! Go UTES! I am on Row 23 and have excellent seats. I am hoping that we go 12-0! I am a little nervous about playing TCU since they beat BYU! However, I have hope that they will win. I am looking forward to go going to the BYU vs. Utah football game November 22nd! The UTES ARE GONNA SMASH THE COUGARS!! :). My friend Felice got me into the games when she gave my family tickets to the game.
Okay, now onto the biggest loser. No, I am not talking about the TV show. My friend Maryann and I are going to do our own version of the Biggest loser. We are joining the gym and exercising every week 6 days a week! Then in May we are going to see who has lost the most weight and whoever does gets to pick where we are going on vacation to. It's time for me to get in shape. I look like a fat cow. :). So...yay for EXERCISE!!!
