Let's Play Catch Up!

Although Cody did a fantastic job on our last post, he was pretty happy to give the reins back to me :) So our last month or so has been crazy/busy/fun/awesome. I started school at the end of August (my last semester ever!) and it has been kicking my butt. Postmodernism, Classical Reception, History of Rhetoric, Short Story, and Spanish. Believe me, they're just as fun as they sound. Except for short story, they're all the classes I've been putting off until now. Dang graduation....

So besides my mountains of homework, I have also been doing some volunteer editing for BYU's Leading Edge magazine, which publishes science fiction and fantasy stories, which is just as nerdy as it sounds. I enjoy it though :) Also, my last week was spent applying for an internship with the Church Magazines (Ensign, Friend, Liahona, and General Publications), which included two applications, an interview, a three hour editing test, and a portfolio with 8 writing samples and 6 editing samples. Yes, it's very intense and very competitive, and would be amazingly awesome if I got it! I don't find out for a couple weeks, but we're keeping our fingers crossed!

Cody's been super busy with work. In fact, he had his best month to date in September and he's been getting tons of calls and bids. Nice job babe!

In addition to all this, we've been having some fun on the weekends! A couple weeks ago we went to the BYU vs. Utah State game, which turned out to be a crazy and super fun game. BYU was down most of the game, but then we switched quarterbacks in the 3rd quarter and started making a comeback. Finally, with two minutes to go, we went almost 100 yards to get a touchdown. The crowd was going crazy! That was my type of game :)

Although it was an awesome game, the crowd had a little bit of an
overreaction. You'd think we'd won the national championship
 by the way they were rushing the field...

That Saturday, we had some family and friends over for a BBQ between conference sessions. Jeff and Carlie unfortunately couldn't make it; they were a little busy having their baby boy Max. Congrats guys!
Anyways, we had some yummy burgers and dogs and had fun chatting.

This last Saturday, we went with Carly and her boyfriend Josh to Lagoon for Frightmares. We had some fun with the roller coasters, ate some yummy amusement park food (fudge, mmmmm), and went through a bunch of haunted houses. Cody laughed through most of them, but I. was. terrified. I don't know what it is about enclosed spaces with creepy clowns, but I mostly freaked out the whole time. We had tons of fun with Carly and Josh!

Oh Cody...

Got myself a hottie

Cody can pull off a bumper car...

And finally, this last Sunday Jacque and Tyson had us all over to celebrate Mason's blessing. We had some yummy food and enjoyed one of the last warm days before it gets cold.

We got the little cutie to smile!

I've been meaning to blog more about the house, but I think I'll wait until the next time we clean it up. Till then, farewell!
