So here is what my peeps and I have been up to for the past few months. For Halloween had some friends over to carve pumpkins.
Trevor, Staci, Tim, and I
Not bad, eh?

This year I decided to be Marilyn Monroe. I was so lucky, cause my costume only cost me $13. I got my dress from my work for free, along with that my employer Tonia let me barrow her jewelry and gloves! All that I had to buy were my eyelashes and faux fur to add the finishing touches to the perfect Marilyn.
Alison, Emily, and I
Halloween night I stopped by Tonia's house where I continued my family tradition of having chili for dinner! Next my lady friends and I hit up a bumping party at an airplane hanger! There we met up with friends from the ward and got hit on by drunk guys! Good times!
Arizona State Fair
Well it was the last night of the state fair, so my friends and I decided we should go! When we arrived we walked around to scope out the different festivites. Our first adventure was the ferris-wheel. Which turned out to be scarier than we were expecting. The one we got in line for had no doors. So when we climbed in...which of course I was on the edge... there was nothing to keep us from falling to our deaths.
Here we are a bit freaked out!
A few views from the top!
After we realized that it wasn't too bad we moved on to the next adventure, the swings! I know that some of these photos aren't the most attractive, but they are in action!
One ride that had us all in a tissy, was the...big twirly ride, which the name of I can't recall. That was my favorite!
Here we are getting off that crazy thing
Because the fair overcharges for their rides, we could only do it once. You can only buy 5, 10, 20, or 100 tickets at a time and all the rides require an odd number of tickets, so after one or two rides you don't have enough to ride another. So my friends and I decided we weren't going to put up with this crap! So we untied by putting our tickets together and found the solution was that only three of us could ride one last ride. Valerie, Alison, and I were the lucky ones that got to ride the merry-go-round! What fun it is sticking it to the fair! Take that!
For Alison's birthday we had the privilege to go up to Flagstaff for the weekend! Thanks to one of Alison's co-workers we were able to stay at their cabin. When we got back, everyone was asking us what we did....the answer: absoultly nothing! It was fabulous! We laid around eating, watching movies, eating, playing games, laughing, eating, shopping, hanging out with Emily's old friend, and did I mention eating? It was so hard coming back to life after such a relaxing weekend! Life was good!
We thought we'd start the weekend off right, by digging right into the
cookie dough on the way up!
Alison's birthday cake... created by Emily... Yummm!
Shopping in downtown Flagstaff
To end...a little treat! Enjoy, this is a rare art you don't see everyday!
