I'm learning so much...

Sidenote: I love school! If there was one thing I could just do for the rest of my life -- I would pick school. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I am a really great student (not that I am the smartest) and I make amazing grades. I have been known to freak out over assignments and cry over grades that I felt were "unfair" but, today... my knowledge has reached a whole new level.

Let me share:

As I was walking to class today I noticed something written in sidewalk chalk (this is not uncommon but, I actually read it this time). I felt like my eyes had been open to the world and this is what it said....


I don't know why I laughed -- but, the thought of it still being entertained in my mind and hopefully one day I can instill that fear in our children....(or not).

Happy early Halloween and remember -- if a monster comes knocking on your door tomorrow don't worry -- it could be worse.

The Pickles

The Chicks

The Roasted Corn

The (Maple) Cotton Candy

And the bright red candy apples

6 to 11

So, the poll had closed and the guessing is over.

6 of my wonderful faithful readers think the baby is a girl.

11 of my wonderful faithful readers think the baby is a boy.

If we all recall Dan was sure the baby was a boy and I just went back and forth.

Well, our ultrasound went great yesterday -- Um, except for the fact that the baby has feet like Dan's little brother (he wears a size 13)! The heart beat was great 144! No clef lip. Perfect umbilical cord. All looks well! We came home with lots of pictures (6 regular and 8 4-D pictures)!

Oh -- and Dan and the other 11 blog readers who said our baby was a boy... They were......

We are defiantly having a little baby GIRL!

So, as many of our readers know Dan and I have season passes to Carowinds ( a local theme park here in Charlotte). We bought them with our friends Peter and Sofia and (most likely) made our last trip of the year on Saturday.

For Halloween the "scary it up" and add about 11 haunted housed. The four of us hit up about 5 or 6 haunted "things" and it was -- fun... but, not scary. So, overall we had a great time trying to scare everyone else at the park. Sofia does the BEST scary/psycho voice and every time she walked passed a unsuspected person -- she would say something in that voice and then we would all laugh. (Not nice - -but, funny. )

The Capitol Of My Heart!

Dan and I were in Raleigh this weekend!

I love Raleigh -- which is good because it means if we can we will move back. I would LOVE to be one of those people who buy a house and live there forever.

While we were there we went to a BIRTHDAY PARTY! (Okay, so the capital letters were used to make it sound more exciting to the general public.) The birthday party was for a little boy turning 5 who I nannied from the time he was 6 month old until he was 2. I haven't missed a birthday party yet! He's such a cute kid too!

We ended up staying at the party for longer than expected due to craziness (which is always welcomed... ) a missed an open house ( Sorry, Ariel).

Saturday night we headed up to the outskirts of the world ( A.K.A. Dan's parent's house) and hung out with Dan's parents and his totally awesome SINGLE brother Brian!

Sunday we got up and went to church (of course the R2 ward). It was great -- I kind of feel like I big deal in the ward thanks to the YW and I secretly miss them like crazy (Are you having fun yet, Anna?)

After church we headed to my parents and had a great time! I had a friend over from high school and her family! She's got one of the cutest/smartest 2 1/2 year old Dan and I have ever seen. His name is Anthony and he's a brilliant little kid.

My aunt was joking with his and told him that his feet stink and all that fun stuff.... and he looked at her and said, "Well, do you want to come smell my butt"?

We laughed so hard I almost peed my pants -- but, that's another story!

There really is no place like home. Although we are getting along just fine in Charlotte, there is still tons I miss about Raleigh. It will all come together... Sooner or later!

Get A-W-A-Y!


So of my bestest (that means friends) are planning a ski trip. I have known about this for a few weeks and have since decided that I want to do something. I mean, "in my condition" skiing probably isn't the best idea... but, what about a day at the spa.

I think I totally deserve it.

Has anyone ever done this?
