The Witch Is In

That's right… my mom and Steff came to visit. (Two weekends ago now) Now don't get me wrong, I love my mom and sister and they are by no means a witch, but we got to do some real witchy things and she helped me get ready for Halloween! We went to go see the Witches up at the Gardner's Mill in South Jordan – How have I lived in Provo for 4 years and not seen the witches at Gardners Mill?? They were adorable!! The Mill is a little shopping place with cute old houses and cute cute stores. At Halloween, they decorate it with the most darling witches you've ever seen… Go see them!

Me and Steffi

Oh, Lucy.

We did A LOT of shopping, while the girls were here. We've been in our house for 2 months now and I've desperately needed my mother's decorative advice (Eric just doesn't have that creative touch she does). We decorated for Halloween and Fall time and even got things ready to be put out for Christmas! More than anything she helped me decorate our cute little apartment for everyday- I've had a pile of pictures, etc to put up I've just been at a loss at where. We hung curtains (Finally!), pictures, clocks, shelves… our place looks so cute now, sometimes I just stare at it haha. Now if we can only keep it clean! Besides decorating and shopping, we did some good eating, and just some quality girl time. I wish they lived closer so we could have more of these opportunities… maybe someday! Here are some pictures of our house!
The Dining Room - I love my clock!

Our front door! Happy Halloween!

Eric got away for the weekend- He went to Las Vegas with some friends to watch BYU beat UNLV... 59-21! Go Cougars! My only request from his boys weekend – bring me something back from H&M. Just like the wonderful husband that he is, he drug his friends to H&M and brought me back some scarves – Now I only wish the weather would cool off so I could wear them! It was good to have him back home from our first weekend away from each other.

In other news….. I GOT A JOB!! Yes, I am now a member of the "those who are employed" club. I'll be working as a receptionist at a local law firm – Philmore Spencer. I've done my training and tomorrow I start in yikes! It's a little overwhelming to learn the 13 attorneys, their assistants, and the quirks of each one, but after a little time, I think I'll get the hang of it. Thank you Courtney for helping me get the job!

Jess also came to visit – New Mexico played BYU in girls soccer so I got to spend a little time with her before and after the game catching up. It's been a while, especially since she wasn't able to make it to the wedding because of soccer. It was so good to see her, and Eric finally got to meet her! Good luck with the rest of your season Jess and hopefully we'll see you back here soon!
We just went to California for Kimi's wedding - it was beautiful, a post to come soon!
