It shouldn't cost almost $7 to make 2 dozen popcorn balls! Granted, I went to Randall's and paid my *don't have to drive to Walmart and stand in line for 20 minutes* convenience tax, so that probably added a buck or two to the total - maybe.
See you at Trunk or Treat tomorrow night! My PB's will be the peach colored ones. I made the sugar mixture orange, but when I poored it on the popcorn, it turned out peach! LOL
Oh well! :)

How wrong I was! For the past few months I heard people make reference to it and how much they loved it, so the other day I decided to breakdown and watch it and I'm so glad I did!
This movie is nothing like I thought it would be. I was expecting a funny haha movie, but instead was treated to a gorgeous, real story of a man raising his three daughters, his wonderful extended family, a beautiful house and his finding love again. The superb soundtrack was a character unto itself and I'll be buying it soon (music by Sondre Lerche).
If you haven't seen this movie, go straight out and rent it. If you're on a budget, you can borrow my copy.
I LOVED IT!

Could someone direct me to the Pro's bathroom?
Hopefully that's for the adult babies of the house!

Why is it that just about everyday I drive in cruddy traffic and it doesn't bother me, but along comes a day where I'm not about to let the guy next to me into my lane even if he has had his blinker on for a while? Most days I just let it roll off me like water off a ducks back when someone cuts me off, but then comes the day where I want to scream at the top of my lungs and smack the steering wheel as if that's going to make everything better.
Why is it that most days I'm happy and content with who I am, but then along comes the day where no matter how good my hair looks, no matter how much weight I've lost, no matter who smiles and says hi in the elevator, it's going to be the day that my friend gets on my nerves and I day dream of rear ending the guy who just cut me off?

I only had an hour so I saved my early voting for later and had lunch instead!
I'll stop by on the way home and see how things look.
For anyone interested, the Early Voting station is the Sheriff's office on Franz Rd. (link to map below).
Update: Who knew that Early Voting meant they closed the polling station early?!? I show up after work only to be told, "Sorry ma'am, we closed at 4:30." GRRRRR!!!

At the time, all the stations on Fry were around $2.79, but as I drove past the Volero at Eldridge and I10 they had it advertised for $2.69. I hadn't seen it cheaper than that anywhere, so I deteremined to look no further and make my purchase there. I pumped the gas and was pleasantly surprised that it cost less than $40 to fill up. I felt great! I had found the bargain and saved a little money. WOOHOO!
After working until 2, my co-worker and I decided to go to lunch at Chili's on Hwy 6.
Confound it if the VERY first gas station I drove past didn't have gas for $2.49!!!!!
Not 5c cheaper, not 10c cheaper.
A full 20c cheaper!!! I could have saved another $3!!
Case in point is a comment posted by "Mike Knight" on my Hurricane Ike - Galveston post.

I disagree, HEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!! DONT do things like this because it hurts the feelings of the innocent bystanders like myself. I am deeply hurt and plan on suing if I do not get an immediate and resounding apology.I am just sick of people treating others like this, with a complete disregard for their feelings.

Um.....what?? Who? Why? Huh?
At first I thought he must have made a mistake, but how do you mistakenly leave a comment like that on a blog?
How did he find my blog?
Why was he reading it?
Is he just a troll out in bloggerland who's only goal is to leave stupid comments on strangers blogs?
Does anyone else get spam comments?

Here we are gathered around waiting to see where they are going to send us. We had a Sacrament Meeting a little earlier. It was awesome.
Another angle of the trash lot. People mucked out their houses and large dump trucks and front end loaders would go down the road loading up all the trash. This is where the trash wound up. Mounds and mounds and mounds of what used to be people's treasured belongings.

I don't know why I'm surprised. I've been personally attacked because of my religion, so why not my political views???

President Christensen!! The BEST Mission President EVER!! You can tell from the picture that he was fun loving. :) The picture was taken July 24, 1997 at the This Is The Place Monument during the sesquicentennial celebrations while waiting for the wagon trains to arrive.
Sister Tipton and I at the Salt Lake Temple two days before we went home. Each missionary, the Tuesday before we went home, would go to the Temple. It just happened to only be the two of us going home that month. (Don't laugh to loudly about the hair!! I thought it was a good idea at the time.)
