Updated list of Christmas movies I watched: A Christmas Carol, Christmas in Connecticut, Scrooge, A Christmas Story, The Grinch, Polar Express, The Bishop's Wife, Santa Clause is Coming to Town, Miracle on 34th Street, Muppet Christmas Carol, Frosty the Snowman. There may have been more, but I can't remember.
Christmas activities: We watched two houses with dancing Christmas lights and went to Festival of Trees. Tomorrow we are going to the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert in Salt Lake and we are going to look at the lights on temple square. I also went to a work Christmas party, but that doesn't count because it wasn't technically invited. I was just there to clean up the decorations. But I did get to eat the food!

It seems though, that they are offering a new service: Dating! Yes, it is true, Cougar Creations is now a great place to meet people. As of yesterday, another couple has decided to tie the knot after meeting at Cougar Creations!
Congratulations to my brother Dave and his fiancee Amanda!

I have been working at the BYU greenhouse this semester. I was planning on getting another job after I graduate, but I never really got around to it partly because I really like my current job and partly because I hate looking for new jobs. In addition, because Evan may take an internship somewhere else this summer, I may have to leave. If I were an employer, I would find it annoying if a full time employee left after four months. Because of this, I am keeping my job at the greenhouse, even though I am overqualified and underpaid.
Because I am graduating, I am getting kicked off the BYU health insurance. This means that Evan has to add me to his student health insurance (which will cost 350% more than we are paying now) or we have to find new health insurance. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to find good health insurance.

An old woman came down the extremely long line of people handing out said keychains with flowers in them (pressed flowers). She was just handing them to all of the girls. Right down the line. First one to the lady in front of us, then to my mom, then my sister, then Shanna,.....wait, hold on a second. Before giving one to Shanna, the lady stopped and asked, "Are you even old enough to drive?" Shanna looked really surprised and said, "yeah." Then the lady gave one to her. It was really weird. She didn't think twice to give one to my sister, but stopped and asked about Shanna. I guess I'm married to someone who looks like they are still a mia maid. That'll be great a bit down the road when shanna's 36 because she'll still look 29. The only problem is that now, people think that she's 15.

Also, starting on Friday, I will begin the annual tradition of wearing Christmas clothing every day until Christmas. I may post photos of that as well. We'll have to see.
Here are some of the Christmas movies I have already watched this year: A Christmas Carol, A Christmas Story, and Christmas in Connecticut. I checked out Scrooge from the library and I have White Christmas on hold, but let me know if you have any suggestions for classic Christmas movies.

Evan kept riding on the wrong side of the street and endangering Shanna's life so she got mad at him and took the lead. However, shortly thereafter (about 30 seconds by my reckoning) she missed our turn which resulted in a long "scenic" route. We eventually reached Utah Lake but since we had no money, we couldn't go in to the park and see the water. The ranger wasn't at the station, so Evan tried to ride in like he did last time with Shanna, but Shanna threatened to send him to bed without dinner if he did.
Shanna insisted on taking the Provo River Trail back home so that we wouldn't have to ride on the street and die from Evan's unpredictable bike riding behaviors. Evan remembered the trail to be a lot bumpier than it was this time. The trail was completely covered in leaves most of the way. We saw and mooed at lots of cows on the way. It was a pretty good 15 mile ride round trip which we completed in just under 2 hours, which made our average pace about 7.5 miles per hour. Evan and Shanna burned 569 calories a piece. Yay! That meant that for dinner they could go eat at Rumbi Island Grill. Delicious.
I love Walmart and Christmas. Shanna made me type that.
If you read this far, you may have guessed that this was just a November Fools joke on you!!! Ha Ha Ha. This bike would have cost $10,000 if we were to buy it.

P.S. Fooled you! He knocked over the plant on accident. But he really wouldn't shake my hand.

We were very blessed to have the tire pop when it did. If our tire had blown out while we were on the freeway, it could have been very dangerous. Fortunately, we had control of the car the entire time and Evan and Scott were able to replace our tire fairly easily.

19. He's got a really good pillow that he is sometimes willing to share.
18. He's good at writing poems.
17. He loves plants. (Okay, he doesn't. But at least he tolerates them.)
16. He doesn't like fruit, which means there is more for everyone else.
15. He has a blue hoodie that makes him very cuddly.
14. He's a good driver.
13. He won't invade your half of the bed while you are trying to sleep.
12. He'll fix your bike for you. And your computer. And the car.
11. He squashes bugs and spiders.
10. He'll dump a bucket of cold water on you while you're in the shower just to keep things lively.
9. He'll always drive when you're together. Even on long car trips. But he'll let you drive if you want to.
8. He lifts the heavy stuff so you don't have to.
7. He cuts his own hair.
6. He'll go to bed at the same time as you every night so you can fall asleep together.
5. He'll share his popcorn even though you said you didn't want any while he was making it.
4. He is financially responsible.
3. He was a cute little kid, so he'll probably make cute kids.
2. He'll always make time for you.
1. He's got a good testimony and is worthy to go to the temple. That means you can keep him forever.
Here are some things I was thinking of doing:
- Freelance landscape design
- Landscape designer for a company
- Nursery Sales
- Keep the job I have now for a little while
It is kinda tough to know what type of job to get. I feel that as a college graduate I should be looking for a job that pays quite a bit more than I am making now and gives me benefits. It should also give me more responsibilities. However, I am heasitant to look for one of those jobs because I don't know how long I will be able to work for the company. Evan graduates the December after I do so we'll be here at least a year. However, if Evan gets an internship out of state this summer, I'll have to leave my job after four months. In addition, we want to have kids some day and that would definitely affect my ability to work as well. So I'm not really sure what I should do.
I also hate looking for jobs. And people in the landscape industry usually aren't too keen on hiring people in January because the bulk of the work needs to be done in the summer.

On Saturday we decided to perform the much-needed task of cleaning our apartment. Evan was a great sport about it and we cleaned the whole apartment together in a couple of hours. He even took the stove top apart and gave it a good cleaning. Our apartment looks a lot better now. I've got the best husband!

We went to eat at Tucanos. It was delicious.
