they put pumpkins in our hotel rooms to carve for a contest that night bridesmaids @ the church...with our handy bags
yeah, go red sox, whatever. we felt extremely obligated to take this picture so our only event in boston wouldn't be stuffing our face with pizza.

october birthdays

happy (belated) 3rd birthday, tyler!

happy early 4th birthday, reagan!

adam is a little sad he won't be here for reagan's "princesses-only" party on saturday. he got the special invite via a handwritten letter (she told me what to write) asking him to come be the special prince in the kingdom and to protect them from "evil witch ruby"(her sister). funny sibling rivalry is already in full force at this age! adam won't be making it to the party because he is leaving tonight for ft. lauderdale. his friend from HS is getting married in marco island but it was too expensive for us both to go. i would LOVE a trip to FL right now, don't get me wrong, but i'm fine to stay home. i'm tired of traveling. i'll save my energy/tolerance for flying for the holidays.. which are creeping up on us! woo hoo! i thought i heard a christmas song on the radio the other day (it was just some ad jingle) and it got me excited... i LOVE christmas music. adam gets so sick of my christmas cds taking up all the disc space in the car. one of the funniest christmas memories we have is when i bought these christmas cds from target that i clearly did not evaluate properly and when i got in the car with adam i go, "ok, let's listen to this CD-- i'm sooo excited about it!" so i play it and turns out it's like beyonce's R&B christmas or something and adam looked at me in horror when he thought i was seriously "so excited" about a rap version of the 12 days of christmas. hahaa. don't worry. i threw it away.

i'm going to start driving everywhere

i seriously hate airlines. they are so stupid. they are definitely on our bad list right now... not that they were off of it before. anyway, after a huge fiasco with this brat from delta about changing my flight home from nyc from tuesday afternoon to monday afternoon, we finally get booked/confirmed on the monday afternoon flight. yes, this is after paying that idiotic $75 change fee. SO- adam and i are a little confused on monday in the jfk airport when we get a boarding card that says "seat request card." "does this mean i'm on standby??" i ask furiously. "NO- just give me a minute," says the delta employee. "OK." well, 3:35pm comes and goes, the door shuts and we have not boarded! basically the flight just left without us, and left several angry customers in our same situation demanding some attention. they had overbooked the flight and rather than let people know that they would need to be involuntarily bumped (is this even legal??), the plane just left! so we BARELY get on the 4:30pm flight thanks to some supervisor named taj. we had to hassle taj for our $100 vouchers too...which hardly makes up for this nonsense. especially since i was already irked about having to pay $75 the day before to get moved to a flight i shouldn't have been put on in the first place. i wouldn't have PAID to change my flight if i wasn't even going to get on. i am still planning on calling delta to get that money back. am i out of line here?

anyway, all of this aside, looks like the joke is on me because i am a moron. for MONTHS we've known (thought) that adam's friend's wedding in FL was this weekend...meaning he'd barely get back from maine and have to hop on another plane wed. night to get to FL in time. so tuesday night, the day before he's going to leave, adam randomly calls travis (the groom) to tell him something about the upcoming wedding, to which travis says, "wait.. you mean next weekend, right?" long story short- we had misread the invitation all these months and the wedding is NEXT weekend! yes, this means another fight with delta. we had already bought some outrageously priced ticket just days before so yep, you guessed it, we had missed out on the "24 hr risk free cancellation." needless to say i am still trying to find a ticket that won't require us to pay more and will just let us use the credit for the ticket he didn't use on wednesday. this will also require a $75 change fee, don't you worry.

i get that airlines have to have rules but it's just annoying when ALL they do is try and make it impossible to EVER change your mind. heaven forbid you have an emergency... or maybe you just want to go home a day early! is that too much to ask? even though it's a rough ride with lots of layovers... i'm starting to like southwest the best. you can change whenever you want, for whatever reason you want. and if you don't use the ticket you just have southwest credit for whenever. no stupid change fees. ok thank you very much, i'm done. i'll post some pics from our trip soon. i'm at work and don't have any.

miller time

yep, it's official. jessie and taylor miller got married on friday and it was fabulous. i had a great time with missy and amy parading around slc in the freezing cold weather! yes, freezing. but i guess that's better than really hot. anyway the sealing was really sweet and i was so glad i got to be there. it was a happy moment for everyone! the reception was at the 23rd floor and DBL (jessie's hilarious dad) pulled off an amazing event! love him and love jessie and loved spending time with all our friends that night. adam was a really good sport toting my purse around while i kept promising "5 more minutes" until we finally left at like 11. here are some pictures from the night...

mr. & mrs. miller
happy couple
amy & missy
friends...heather w/her bun in the oven!

me & missy at the reception

bouquet toss

first dance..no they are not booty dancing even though that's what it looks like

candy bar

adam & i at the reception..a rare moment when we were actually together. for some reason he wanted to hang out with a friend from school that was there rather than follow me around...strange.

cheesecake factory

did anyone else know this little piece of heaven on earth will be at fashion place on nov 1st? utah is catching up with the times.. and i like it.

the knot will be tied...

...tomorrow at 10:20am! so excited to see these lovebirds get hitched and to spend the day having fun with friends. this is from my wedding and i'm looking a little haggered but i'm pretty sure this was in between photo sessions and i was probably sweating off all my makeup.. august in FL is all i have to say. congrats jess! can't wait for some photo ops tomorrow with the two of us switched.
