It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year :)

Fall is finally here! I love love love this time of the year. Fall has always been my favorite season :)I just realized I haven't blogged since July, woah. I have just been working nonstop and every time I say I'm going to blog I end up getting busy. So a lot has been going on since I last posted.

I didn't end up getting that job that I really wanted :( they called me and told me they thought I would be perfect for the job but they had another candidate who actually had experience in that position so of course they had to give it to him. He did say that if they had another position open up they would call me, but those are hard to come across so we'll see. I am still working at the school as a teacher in training but I just don't know if that is what I want to do right now especially for what they are paying me. I really wanted to get that other position and I actually applied with a another company for a similar position and got a phone interview and have an in person interview with them on Wednesday so I'm excited for that and hoping it works out well. I am still working at OG on the weekends and I pick up shifts every once in a while during the week as well. You can imagine working everyday of the week gets very exhausting. But I am doing it for the extra money, especially with the holidays coming up, if I get this other position I am not going to continue working at OG for much longer.

Yesterday I had my first Saturday off since like July. I had originally requested it off because there was a pageant we were going to put Alexis in, but last minute we decided not too. We ended up going up to Snowbird for Oktoberfest :) I went to Oktoberfest when I was 18, when I first moved to San Francisco for college, and I loved it! If you know me, you know that I love anything German, so we had a good time eating some yummy German food. We took Lexi with us and she had so much fun, there was a little bit of snow up there so it was really pretty. We came home that afternoon and took a nap and wanted to go to the movies but couldn't find a babysitter so we went to Rodizio Grill for dinner and came home and relaxed the rest of the night. It was so nice to get out and do something on my one day off. We also went to a BYU football game Friday, since Derek got free tickets from his boss, so that was fun, even though of I am not a BYU fan ;)

As I mentioned earlier. I love love Fall. My favorite month is November but I have grown very fond of October, ever since I had Lexi. Halloween time is so fun when you have a little one, I'm pretty sure it's a tie between Halloween and Christmas. Last year was so fun because we took her to a pumpkin patch, I made her Boo costume, we had my work trunk or treat, and the picture contest which she won ;) and we did our trick or treating. Well this year we have a fun packed month as well. We're taking her to Cornbelly's again to pick out her pumpkin, there is a costume pageant at the end of the month, I am making her costume again this year, she is going to be a peacock :) Derek knows someone who owns a peacock farm so he is going to try to get me real feathers, and I would also love to take Lexi to a corn maze.

Side Note: I have to mention this because I think it's crazy how man hits my post,How To Make A Monsters Inc Boo Costume, has gotten; I'm almost at 20,000 and it's not even October yet! I've been pinned a gagillion times and have had some people leave such sweet comments about it. It makes me happy that so many people are using my tutorial to make the costume, because I remember when I was trying to make the costume and how little info there was out there. Plus it always feels good to know that your good at something you only had a small amount of experience in.

I mentioned before that I disliked Alexis' daycare; Well I put in her 30 day notice and her last day there will be the 17th. I am wanting to put her back in at one of the two daycare's she was at before, but just a closer location. I am working in Draper now and if I get the other position I will still be in Draper so I am looking in that area. Lexi has a dentist appointment this month that I am looking forward to. Lexi is getting bigger everyday and her hair is getting longer and longer, which keeps prompting Derek to ask if we can cut it, to which I always answer no lol. I love Lexi's long hair and want to keep it that way; Once it gets down to her waist I will probably give in but for now it is right around her mid-back, so I think we'll keep it long through winter.

Speaking of Winter... I don't think it'll be too long before it starts snowing. The top of the mountains are already covered in snow so this be be a very early winter, which is bittersweet for me. I love the cold whether because I love dressing myself and Lexi for Fall, and love the snow, but I hate driving in the snow. I guess we'll see how early it decides to make it's appearance.

I think that is all I have for now. Hopefully I will have time to update in the following weeks. Enjoy.
