haters beware

I was reading something tonight and came across this lovely, frolicking picture. Thought I'd share my good fortune. Everyone HATED this little clip in the new Twilight movie and I can't figure out why. I mean, besides its obvious cheesiness. But, come on. It was so fun and cute!! And Rob rocks that vest! You can't deny it.

giving thanks

I am so thankful this year for so many things. I am thankful for my beautiful family, for good friends and neighbors, for all of the things that we have that I take for granted too often, and especially for awful, puke-your-guts-out morning sickness.

Teeny Tiny Tietjen baby #2 due to arrive this June.

Happy Thanksgiving!! xoxo

so you're the vampire girl

Here are some shots from my awesome New Moon-themed 25th birthday party!! I went to the premiere with the Chandlers so they came over beforehand to watch Twilight, revel in my awesome decorations, and just generally be super duper excited/nerdy (whatever you want to call it) with me. I love them all so much! When K got off of work he joined us at the New Moon midnight premiere. It was amazing!! So fun. Can't wait to see it again (well, I went twice on Friday, so... again again.). Friday was also my 5 year wedding anniversary- love you K. Such a good week. Be sure to notice all of the frames in my house were filled with NM quotes that I printed off from this site. Also our red lips and nails- all in honor of Edward, who was quite thirsty in this first pic. That's probably what makes him take his shirt off in the end of NM. That boy can't hold his strawberry soda. Also, my red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and blood splatters were a big hit. And I got to snuggle up under my new Twilight blankie that Mandy, my sister-in-law, gave me while I played Twilight Scene-It (Thanks Ashley!!) with the Chandlers. ...if you don't want to be my friend any more after reading this, I'll understand.

trick or treat

We went to Boise for Halloween with Klayton's family. Stayed with K's brother, Spencer, and had lots of fun. I let K come up with our Halloween costumes this year and... well... see for yourself. He's a mad scientist. I'm his victim. Pretty yucky but you have to love his imagination and ability to make all of that spending $8 at DI. He also did our pumpkins and he carved me an Edward pumpkin!! Yay!! It's gorgeous. What an awesome hubby I have. Avery had so much fun and still asks about trick or treating and wants to watch "Gawfield Haween!!" I just can't believe that we've officially rounded the corner and now Thanksgiving and Christmas are staring me right in the face! It's craziness. I can't wait.
