Fall Delight!

This past week we finally were able making carmel apples! I have been wanting to make them all season and we finally decided to buy the stuff and do it! We had a fun time making them and even better time eating them! They don't quite look like the Rocky Mountain Chocolates Carmel Apples-which I love-but they were cheaper and fun to make! :)
It was also my Mother's birthday this past week. It took her a while to figure out how old she was turning..45?..46?..its all the same once you get that age anyways I guess! ;) We surprise her with a little "Over the Hill" party! I love my Mama! She's the best!
On Saturday we went to Boondocks and hit up the arcades with the Jensen fam! We found a couple games that help you win quite a few tickets! 500 tickets can get you this little guy! :)
Jesse and I also did something we don't do very often. Saturday night we went to the movies.. a 9 o' clock movie..which is late for us! We went and saw Inception at the Kaysville Theatre. We enjoyed it besides the fact that we might of been afraid of going to sleep. I forgot how much a love the Kaysville Theatre. 
1. It's close by and it just makes you feel proud of Kaysville for having such a convenient little theatre!
2. It's cheap!-you can buy 2 tickets, popcorn, and a small drink for the price of basically one ticket at the other movie theaters.
3. The old school preview commercials are still there where everyone yells "EWW"
4. You almost always see friends you haven't seen for a while and it's so good to run into them! (especially when they let you come in line where they are..I don't want to call it butting in line...)

I am glad we are able to spend our free time doing things we enjoy-especially together! It gets me through school! Yes I am still counting down the weeks till the semester is over..

End of October..Wow that went by fast!

So I am a little late with posting Halloween but better late then never.
We didn't really think of a costume until the day before.
(But yes I have already bought my ugly sweater for Christmas-it's pretty good!) 
We decided to be a Biker Chick and Biker Dude. -something easy that we could throw together!..
We went to a friend party with Jesse's sister Brooklyn and had yummy food. Too bad we couldn't say longer but we were able to go to the family party at the Jensen's house and play games with the fam!
Jesse bobbing for apples. I attempted for a second but decided I did not want to get that wet when its cold. Good thing we had the boys to entertain us.
Eating donuts off the string. I might of gotten a bite off..but Jesse did the rest of the work!

We went up to logan for Halloween day and we're able to hang out with some friends up there. We went shooting..until it started raining. We had delicious chili and played games. Jesse and I stayed up much later than we are used to. I have to admit I haven't seen that late (or I should say that early) on a clock since we were dating. It probably wont happen again for a long time. We enjoy our early bedtime..and we will as long as we can! :)
I try to think of different dinners to make to mix it up but have a hard time with being creative. I tend to use allrecipes.com and it does me well. But if anyone has any good ideas for dinners that are easy, cheap, and yummy feel free to share! :) I enjoy cooking but usually find myself not having much time to think about what to make and actually make it. 

So this last week I decided to make pizza. Jesse and I both like canadian bacon and pineapple. I took my time to make it look good and have the canadian bacon and pineapple perfectly spaced so every bite would be great. I put it in the oven and look back on the counter to noticed I missed an important ingredient...the pizza sauce! Dang it! I had to scrap off all the stuff-that I put so perfectly on and just throw it back on AFTER I put the pizza sauce on. We still loved it and gobbled it up though!
