~Christmas Music is in full force and I couldn't be happier!
~Thanksgiving: was so gooood, I ate too much pie and enjoyed every bite! It's always so nice to hang out with family.
~My mom came in town and it's been so much fun hanging out with her.
~Black Friday Shopping: it was a bust, WALMART is the devil, but I had fun anyways!
~Temple Lights/Kidmans Singing/Bahama Bucks Sno Cone = perfect! oh and my hilarious nephews at the Mexican restaurant!
~We finished decorating the House/Yard with all our Christmas lights, it looks great! (i'll try to get a good picture)
~This weekend we get to go Christmas Tree hunting in Flagstaff, I can't wait to get it home and decorated so I can finally put the presents where they belong!
~This semester is almost over which means I will get to see my loving husband more, even if I only get to see him playing the new Call of Duty game 24/7, at least he's at home :)

My boss took me out to breakfast at Paradise Bakery, which i LOVE! I also got some sweet giftcards from a few co-workers.
Jared got me Snow White and i already watched it :) He also came to my work with Panda Express :) He drove from ASU all the way to my office and could only stay for 30 miutes because he had to drive all the way back to ASU for more classes....A M A Z I N G, I love my husband, he is the best!!! and he had the most beautiful bouquet of Daisies and Roses sent to my office!
My niece Gracie left me the cutest happy birthday voicemail, and my nephew Aidan called and sang Happy Birthday to me....so cute!!
Lastly I hosted mutual at my house and we played Gospel Feud, I love the young women and my calling and it was a fun way to spend the evening.
After mutual Jared got home from school and that was pretty much it for day, it was PERFECT.
Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes!!!

We are so exited to finally have someone to occupy the house next door. We are especially happy that you have little dogs that love to stand by the fence and bark all day.....so cute. We're also very thrilled that you leave your back yard lights on all night, mostly because all that light pours through my bedroom window and now I can see at 3am when i get up to use the bathroom. I also just love that there is almost always someone parked in front of our driveway, even when yours is totally empty, cars looks better on the street anyways. But my favorite thing so far has got be that your beautiful children use my back yard as their trash can. At first I wasn't sure but tonight when i took out the trash i was able to witness the airborne garbage. Welcome to the neighborhood, so glad to have you :)

July 4th Weekend : We will be spending it up in Parks at the cabin with some of the Tieman gang. Hopefully the weather will be wonderful, we're both really looking forward to a relaxing few days away from our daily schedules!
July 7th : is our 2nd anniversary!!! I can't believe it's been 2 years already, time really flies. We're not doing anything too crazy, probably just out to eat or something simple the weekend before or after.
July 6th - 9th : the reason we'll be celebrating our anniversary the weekend before/after the actual date.....I'm going to be up at Camp Lo-Mia for Girls Camp!! I'm really exited for camp, I'm sure it'll be tons of fun going as a leader, but mostly I'm exited because then it will be over and no more camp planning and prep!!!! Seriously I am constantly doing camp stuff, so it'll be nice to be done with that!
July 11th : My grandparents will be here that weekend, so we're all(Marble Family) getting together to have a BBQ.
July 15th : Ummm Harry Potter Midnight Showing BABY!
July 18th : Going to see Wicked at the Gammage with my Mutti, my Bro and his wife!
I will TRY to post after I get back from Girls Camp, but I'm not making any promises until after the 18th. BUT, there will be a lot of pictures, you can be sure of that!

I am pretty much the QUEEN of midnight releases, I LOVE going to them! I love waiting in ridiculously long lines for hours and hours and watching all the super nerds that are dressed in costumes be super nerdy! Yah, I know, I'm one of those super nerds! SO what was I doing at midnight, not watching the movie so what does it even matter?! After a long debate I decided it was best to forgo the midnight experience just this once. It sucks really bad, but it just wasn't really possible for my sweets and I to go. So after all this waiting, I have to wait one more day!! We'll be going tomorrow night at 7:45 and I can't wait, it's going to be complete awesomeness!
UPDATE: I was sick of seeing the counter saying 'countdown complete', because well, it's not complete for me yet, so i reset it for my personal showtime for tomorrow, ha ha!

ME: i can't sleep josh, tell me a story
jOsh_tieman: there once was a girl named Becky, who wandered through life with dreams of owning a big block nova
ME: i like this story.....
jOsh_tieman: but alas her evil father the king had promised the nova to her younger brother who showed no interest in it
jOsh_tieman: but it was at this time that a handsome young prince came into this fair lady’s life
jOsh_tieman: he was handsome, funny, smart...well ok maybe he was funny cause he was just goofy and maybe he was quick witted
jOsh_tieman: but hey i’m tellin the story
jOsh_tieman: so this handsome young prince came into the young lady’s life and swept her off her feet
ME: this is good stuff
jOsh_tieman: when he first came to pick her up he arrived on his fathers steed, the most expensive horse in all the land named Escalade
jOsh_tieman: however, this did not impress the young damsel
ME: hahaha, that's right!
jOsh_tieman: so the next time the prince came to get her he arrived on a horse named Camaro that his extremely handsome and beyond pimp cousin had first suggested to the young prince that he should purchase
ME: lol, yep can't forget that important part
jOsh_tieman: for you see his cousin was no ordinary man but in fact a wise wizard who proceeded to teach the young prince squire all he needed to know to survive in the land
jOsh_tieman: so this wizard instructed the young price that while this steed did not appear at first to be the strongest or best looking horse, that in time it would turn out to be far more desirable than even the young prince could handle
jOsh_tieman: the wizard instructed the prince in the care of this steed and showed him how to raise, nurture it, ride it, and help it develop into a mighty steed
ME: smart wizard
jOsh_tieman: at this point in the story the prince was called away on a special adventure by his father, the duration of which would be no less than two years
jOsh_tieman: it would be fraught with danger, exposure to new kingdoms
jOsh_tieman: people, places, foods, and all sorts of experiences that would further shape the young prince
jOsh_tieman: for the wizard had explained to him that this was how he gained a vast amount of his knowledge, of course he was born with a great deal of knowledge also but the wizard left that out
jOsh_tieman: so the young prince ventured into the cruel cold world, alone, left to fend for himself and learn those things that he was sent to learn
jOsh_tieman: and as the time passed he grew and learned and matured into a mighty fine young prince. it was during this time he grew in emotional stature to a point where one day he would be able to rule his own kingdom
jOsh_tieman: of course he shrank in physical stature but hey what do you expect eating rice and beans
jOsh_tieman: so his journey continued, and he grew and grew till one day he awoke and found that his time had passed
jOsh_tieman: for his adventure had grown to a close
jOsh_tieman: before he even had expected it, he had to return to his home land and tell tales of his adventures from the faraway kingdom
jOsh_tieman: so he rode home
jOsh_tieman: and as he entered the kingdom he began to see all of his loved ones, his parents, brothers, sisters, cousins and all those people who meant the most to him in life
jOsh_tieman: but alas! there was no maiden
ME: lol, whatev
jOsh_tieman: what could have befallen her in his two year time span?
jOsh_tieman: perhaps she was consumed by a horrible dragon?
jOsh_tieman: perhaps some other young prince had stolen her heart?
jOsh_tieman: nope, she was busy at the castle playing Halo with her brothers.... and behold the prince’s anger waxed strong against the fair lady
jOsh_tieman: not really
jOsh_tieman: i just threw that last part in for certain members of my audience…..
jOsh_tieman: so the prince returned home and found that his steed had grown further
jOsh_tieman: that his maiden had grown fairer and also matured much
ME: lol, thanks
jOsh_tieman: for she too had her share of hardships while he was away
jOsh_tieman: but behold the day came when they returned to each others embrace and had one of the greatest weddings in the history of the kingdom
ME: lol, alright!
jOsh_tieman: and the young prince returned to the wizard and thanked him immensely for the steed, the maiden, and everything else he had given him in life
jOsh_tieman: and behold the fair maiden and the young prince rode off on their steed and grew old and happy together and their kingdom prospered and they had a wonderful life together
ME: so they all lived happily ever after, even the wizard right?
jOsh_tieman: until a mere ten years later they attended the pimp wizards funeral after he died mysteriously in a hang gliding accident at the brutally young age of 33
jOsh_tieman: the end!
ME: lame ending!!! do-over!
jOsh_tieman: you know you loved it
ME: other than the ending, i loved it, it was a wonderful story
ME: i think i'm gonna have to save it, and show jared someday
jOsh_tieman: k the wizard found a young maiden of his own, had a amazing wedding, and had kids that would beat the crap out of the young princes kid all the freakin time!

We went up Mt. Lemon on Saturday afternoon for a little picnic, and who knew it looks like Flagstaff in Tucson???! Seriously, it was so neat to go from hot desert, to cool, beautiful forest in about a 30 min drive!! We also rented Bed Time Stories while we were there, which was surprisingly really good! Got to take a tour of the Campus where Josh spends all his time and have some good quality chat time with Claudia while the boys were beating a video game.....Yes, they started and finished an entire Xbox game while we were there.............It was a really great time, I'm glad they let us bug them for a couple days!!!

I'm listening to a couple of people talk about an issue with someone, and I kind of shook my head along with them and said things like 'really?'.....'wow, that's interesting'. I was totally blind to the fact we were gossiping until I figured out the person that they were badmouthing was someone I knew quite well!! At that precise moment I got very defensive, and upset that they would even be describing this person in such a manner. And then it hit me, WOW, how many times have i had participated in conversations just like this one, and I just listened because I didn't really know the person being 'gossiped' about! I wonder if ANY of those past talks were even remotely accurate!!!
I was so surprised by my findings that I think I shocked the poor ladies telling me the story. I might have even embarrassed them with how defensive I got, totally wasn't my intention! I don't even really speak to the person they were talking about anymore, but I felt extremely compelled to express my feelings.
I just really hope I don't forget how I felt last night, and I can recognize when gossiping is going on right in front of my face! I know it's something everyone could probably work on, especially me!!

It was at TheaterWorks in Peoria, and the play is called 'Signs of Sara'. Well since I hate going anywhere by myself I took my awesome little brother with me!!

He is a pretty awesome dood and has always set a really good example for me...lol, yah i know I'm older i should be setting the examples here, but seriously Dizzle you are the best, i love ya bro!

We are really busy people these days! And we've been trying to eat healthy, which is really time consuming and expensive!! But anyways, i can prepare all my meals in the morning, portion them out and at dinner time i just throw the veggies in the steam bag and *BAM* 2 minutes later they are perfectly steamed and ready to eat! You don't even have to add water or butter....all i put in with them is the wonderful Bruce's Seasoning (pretty much a staple on everything we cook) and they taste awesome! I will never go back to steaming them in a pot..unless maybe i have more time in the evening to make dinner. But for now, this works and it saves me major time, LOVE THEM!

one of the questions i'm asking in heaven....
Plot: An origins story centered on the centuries-old feud between the race of aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans
Rated: R - for bloody violence and some sexuality
First off, this is not Underworld 3, it is the 3rd movie to come out, but it is a prequel to the other 2 movies, placed centuries before Underworld.
If you like Vampire/Werewolf movies and lots of blood and sweet action then go see this movie immediately!!! I LOVED this movie, it match all of my expectations and more! I was very worried about how good or bad it might be, considering it was a prequel. Usually i feel like prequels spend too much time trying to bridge the gap between the movies. Or they have way too much or too little info for people who didn't see the originals. This one got it dead on perfect! It had plot and character references to the original Underworld movies, but it wasn't overbearing...it was just enough actually. They also casted perfectly for the part of Sonja...Rhona Mitra...she was awesome! I even liked her better than Kate Beckinsale in the other 2 movies. Granted they played different characters, but Mitra did a way cooler bad A vampire chika! I also thoroughly enjoyed watching Michael Sheen play the infamous Lucian. He was great in the first 2, but this one was all about him and he freaking rocks as a crazy Lycan!! Bill Nighy (Viktor) doesn't dissapoint either...he does the insane weird evil vampire perfectly! I love his reactions and facial expressions!! There was plenty of Vampire vs. Lycan death matches and tons of blood and gore to go right along with Underworld, and Underworld: Evolution. Oh and for all you ladies who are debating about seeing it because of teh violence...this movie has one of the most powerful and intense romance stories ever!! I give it 4.5 stars for pure awesomeness!
