I <3 Thanksgiving!

Christmas and Thanksgiving are my two favorite holidays. It was fun spending Thanksgiving with Matt's family, but I sure missed my family. Every year, we go to Dave's parent's house to eat. After we eat Thanksgiving dinner, we eat home-made pies and candy (I really missed the DELICIOUS desserts Grandmommy makes). At the dinner table everyone had to say one thing that we were thankful for. It was a really special moment hearning what everyone had to say. After dinner, we played Pinochle (a card game that I am obsessed with) and watched some football. The Cowboys won!
I am so thankful for my family and the hilarious memories we have shared. We are a very unique family but we all love eachother a lot. I am SO excited to go home over Christmas and see everyone. Christmas is a huge deal in our family. We go all out with a huge Mexican lunch and open presents. Hopefully I can find some more funny home videos that we can all watch. I get the warm fuzzies thinking about Christmas memories with my family. I can't wait for Matt's family to meet my family. We can be pretty loud and I hope they don't think we are too crazy =)

Tagged Again!

I'm supposed to post the 4th picture in the 4th file in my computer. Then, I am supposed to explain what the picture is and tag 4 people...since all the people I know have been tagged, I guess I won't do that =]

From left to right these are my friends: Sarah, Blair, Anna, Laura, and I. I'm friends with Travis Barker's assistant,Aquil, and he gave us free tickets that were really close to the stage for a Fall Out Boy concert. Along with the tickets, he gave us free Famous shirts. It was such a fun night!

I know it's not Christmas yet...

...but I absolutely LOVE Christmas, and I can't wait for it to come!
That's why I already have the Christmas themed blog layout! =]

Halloween..a little late

I didn't dress up for Halloween this year, but I helped Matt dress up for his halloween costume contest at work. He dressed up as one of his co-workers, Carl. Carl always wears these nasty flannel shirts to work, so we went to the thrift store and bought the ugliest one we could find. I helped Matt cut his wig to look like Carl's hair, dye his mustache, and pick out clothes to wear.
This is a pumpkin with hair that my roommates hung in the doorway of our apartement complex. When you would open the door it would swing at your face. It scared me every time I would open the door even though I knew it was there.
This is Matt at work...he looks JUST like Carl. Matt got first place and won this 8 foot tall blow-up witch thing! He said that EVERYONE loved his costume..he really does look just like Carl
This is the motivation behind the costume...the REAL Carl. Matt said that Carl wore basically the SAME exact ugly flannel shirt that we bought for Matt's costume the night before, so it matched his costume almost perfectly. It's hard to tell them apart!

Tag, I'm It!

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention rules on your blog.
3. Tell about 6 quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same.
5. Leave a comment to let them know.

My friends, Kelci and Anissa, tagged me. here is their page:
terryandkelci.blogspot.com, tellepa.blogspot.com

1. Ok, so I am totally weird about public bathrooms. If I ever walk into one and someone is already in there, I always go to the sink and just turn the water on untill they are finished. There's something about peeing at the same time as them that really freaks me out. Also, if I have a water bottle or any other drink in my hand I have to leave it outside of the restroom. I feel like all the germs in the bathroom will get inside whatever I am drinking! I know...I'm weird.

2. I LOVE scaring people. Ever since I was little, I would always hide around corners and try to scare my mom (it always worked =] ) I'm pretty sure I got this habit from my uncle, Michael. He always till this day trys to scare Edy, Granny, my Mom, Devon or anyone he gets the chance to. He would always scare me when I was little, and for some reason I like to do it now?

3. I LOVE to watch home videos. Usually on Sunday's when there is not much to do I like to pop in an old home video and watch it with the family. I really like going through them and finding really hilarious videos and showing the whole family. One of the classics is my twirling routine to the Lion King soundtrack with my silk panties on. Also, there's one where Edy is like 7 and she's holding me and she doesn't know what to do because I am crying. I am so glad that my mom recorded like every second of my life, because it's so fun to go back and look at old videos.

4. I really like the smell of fish food. Yes, fish food. I have no idea why, but I seriously love it. Michael used to always let me feed his fish when I was little and ever since then I loved the smell of the food. I would always just stand there for a few minutes with my nose in the fish food can just lovin every minute of if! I never ate it, I just like the smell.

5. I know that Edy, my mom, and I both have this weird fettish, but we love to pop zits. Not only on ourselves, but other people. LOL. I know it's really weird, but something about like watching the puss come out is so gross but so cool! We are weird.

6. I have to have 2 things in order to get a good night's sleep. 1. My stinky pillow(that doesn't really stink). I have had this pillow since I can remember. It was my great grandma's pillow when she was younger so it's seriously like over 100 years old. It's so soft and whenever you flip it over it is sooo cold on the other side! There's like 10 holes that have been sewn by Tami (Matt's mom) all over it, but it's holding up really well! 2. A fan. I have to have the noise of a fan blowing or else I can not fall asleep!

7. Ok, so I decided I want to add one more quirk of mine. I am a PYROMANIAC. I love to build fires and put sticks and leaves on it. I could seriously look/play with a fire for hours. When Granny used to live at her old house in Huffman, I would go back into the woods area and seriously stay out there for hours building huge fires. Luckily I never started a massive forest fire (hmmm..Michael?) I think my love for fire lead to my love for fireworks. It's been me and Michael's tradition to pop fireworks since I was little. Luckily, Michael has "lived a full life" according to Devon. LOL!

Car Rides!

So, one of my favorite things to do is to take a picture whenever Matt and I go somewhere in the car. Yeah I know it's kind of cheesy, but it's really fun looking back at pictures and being like, "Oh this is when we went and did this..." Here's some fun pictures we've taken so far!

1st trip to Utah together

Shootin skeet with the boys...

A few weeks ago, Matt, his two brothers James and Mikey, Daniel, and I went and shot skeet!
Shooting skeet is where you throw those red pellet things high in the air and you have to try to shoot them down before they hit the ground. The boys were pretty good at it, but not me. I didn't really know how to aim the shotgun, but I still had a lot of fun!

Matt showing me how to put the pellets in the thing
