It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS

Well I surprisingly have several exciting things to post about.
In order of importance:
#1 Our Christmas tree is officially up and decorated! All 3 ½ feet of it.
#2 Finally got to put up all my Christmas decorations that I have been collecting for the last 9 years of my life. I have never seen so many decorations in such a small space!
#3 We live in a house with 4 Christmas trees!
(Switching gears from all things Christmas).
#4 I am officially employed… Dr. Elison, my previous orthodontist of only 9 months, has hired me to be the chair side assistant. I turned down their first offer to be the Treatment Coordinator, but a week later they called back and demanded I be on their staff. I think it’s the red hair.
#5 My full time job means working Monday through Thursday...Gives me all of Friday to sew!!
#6 Good news: I am finally getting over this week long sickness. Bad news: Steven Daniel just got it.
#7 Ate Thai food for the first time together last night. Great food. Got home and had 3 pieces of pizza. Thai people=skinny. Americans=not so much.
#8 Thanksgiving. 4. Days. Away.
#9 Shopping. 5. Days. Away.
#10 All my family will be here for Thanksgiving weekend except Bridget and her family. Lame!
P.S. Happy Birthday today to Jonathon Radford!

Life is good

Life really couldn't get any better!
Right now Dan is painting, I'm on the computer, and together we are watching "while you were sleeping" in our room that is totally decorated for Christmas!
Simple. Relaxing. Perfect. I've never been happier. Totally love Steven Daniel and I really don't think life could get any better this! I'm one lucky gal.

Monday, November 2, 2009 got some 'splainin ta do

Happy Halloween!
Well technically this was our second Halloween, but it was our first married Halloween and actually our very first holiday we've shared as a married couple.
We went to this cute Big Red Barn place to pick out the best pumpkin in Idaho. Steven Daniel is clearly WAY excited about it! :)

We chose a two-faced design for our pumpkin...Dan is the scary and I'm the scared.

Ok we're kind of lame, but Daniel and I aren't really the "Halloween party" type. (You know the kind where you don't know anyone and all the girls are wearing hooker costumes claiming to be dressed up -ya, not our style. ) We just wanted to spend it at home eating pizza and hanging out with family. BUT, that didn't stop us from dressing up. I have always loved the show "I Love Lucy" and have always wanted to dress up like her for a Halloween. Well this year I actually had a Ricky to dress up with so we went all out. It's kind of hard to look like Ricky Ricardo unless you're Cuban, but we parted hair and put a suit on my handsome husband. We went to Rigby and Idaho Falls to deliver goodies to friends and family and then we got Pizza Hut pizza.

"Are you sure you don't want to stay in the car while I go in and order the pizza?"
-Steven Daniel Radford
Hahaha who would be ashamed to go into a restaurant with such a hot lookin Lucy for a wife?! :)

My mom and I made the goodies that Steven Daniel and I took around. I wish we would have taken a picture of them because they were SO CUTE!! Took a whole day of baking and we didn't even finish all the treats we wanted to. Next year.

p.s. how cute are the Christensen kids?! (Would have taken pictures with the others we took treats to but they de-costumed themselves way too quick).

Even though we had a blast, we took down our Halloween decorations faster than you can say "52 DAYS 'TIL CHRISTMAS!!!" We are burning out cinnamon spice candle and I may or may not have put up a nativity set in our bedroom.....
