Utah and Family....love it!

So this past weekend Jordan, Laura, and myself took a trip down to Utah. It was great fun. We met my dad there, and my oldest sister and her husband their to play play play!!! So here is how our weekend went:

Friday: Plan to leave around 2:oo pm. Jordan decided we needed to make a quick stop at walmart to get somethings....little did I know he wanted to get Transformers to watch in the car. Well since he was getting a present I needed one too. YAY for Michael Buble's new CD!! I listened to it pretty much the whole way down. It is awesome and I love it, and you should all get it so you can love it too! We finally get to Provo around 7:30. We meet up with dad and brother and head over Brook Oven Pizza. Yum Yum. Carole Ann and Jon were getting in at 1030 so we needed to pick them up. Mission accomplished and we headed back to Provo. Jordan and I stayed at the greatest people's house...Erin and Kasey Johnson. We stayed up talking til about 2 and I had to get to early to take Jordan and my brother David to GAME DAY in the morning.....

Saturday: Alarm goes off at 6:30....kill me I only got 4 hours of sleep. We finally got up at 6:50 and I went to take Jordan and David to the stadium for game day. Got back to Erin's and layed back down..phone rings at 745...Dad calls and is ready for me to pick him up to take him to Game day. Do that...go back to Erin's and get ready. Now I am waiting for the boys to call so I can pick them up. Gee what am I everyone's shuttle? Oh don't forget how I get to take Laura my little sister to get her hair cut and then pick up my sister and brother in law to take them back to Provo. So by the time all of this shuttling is over it is only noon. Wow busy day so far. But I didn't mind it, it was fun and who needs sleep anyway right? So after the morning we decided we were hungry..cafe rio yep here we come. Then we just went on campus and that evening went to the BYU vs TCU game. We wont talk about that..I'm sure you all know how it went! That evening we went out for more pizza yes we like pizza....and then hit the hay I'M TIRED!

Sunday: SLEEP IN YESSSS!!! Went over to meet the fam for the last time and said our goodbyes took some pictures then headed home. I slept 3 out of the 4 hours I think. It was great! Got home around 6 ate french toast...and let me remind you how I did NO Homework this weekend. Yes don't you love that...until you find out you have 2 quizzes this week and 2 tests...oh crap. Maybe I should be studying instead of blogging....nahhh this is much more needed!!

Pictures will be coming soon. Hope you enjoyed my weekend as much as I did!!!!!

Pumpkin Weekend

So this weekend was Super fun!!! We actually did something other than homework. I was able to get all my homework for the weekend done on Friday. It was awesome. So Friday night we decided we wanted to carve a pumpkin so we went and got one. Obviously when picking out a pumpkin you have to find the perfect one....so I was looking for the roundest, the orangest then my wonderful husband insited we get this green one....because it was different and has character I guess? haha hes so funny, so we ended up getting not the orangest...but it was pretty round. After carving our pumpkin we watched the proposal. I love that movie it is so funny. I laughed so hard even though I have already seen it before. I made a big bowl of pop corn and we just had a great time together!!!

Saturday was another fun day. Of course I woke up early and headed to the gym. When I got home Jordan was still sleeping. He needs his beauty rest. :) Jk we did a little bit of homework and then we went out to Idaho Falls. We walked around the green belt got some lunch and just relaxed. It was a beautiful day. We had stake conference Saturday night as well. After stake conference I decided I was going to make my own pumpkin puree for some pumpkin bread. Now I didn't just randomly decided to make pumpkin puree, I have been wanting to do this for a while. Someone at work told me about a great website. (http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/) and I found that there was a recipe for pumpkin puree and I thought it would be fun to try. Wow its a lot more work than opening a can. Its not really hard cause all you do is roast the pumpkin and puree it. But number 1: I don't have great knifes for cutting pumpkin, and 2: I don't have a food processor so I used a potato masher. I tired using my blender but it was taking forever. So I just put some elbow greece into it and got the job done myself. Let me remind you I didn't start this project until 9pm and I also decided I would make bread and muffins also. I got finished around 11:30. It was a lot of fun, I will probably never do it again...well maybe if someone buys me a food processor (hint Christmas hint) I was actually thinking as I was making the puree "I will never do this again.." But then I tasted the bread and decided once I get better knifes and a food processor I'll do it. I am not sure if it was the bread recipe that was so good of if the fresh pumpkin made it that good? I just love pumpkin bread canned or fresh hands down. It was a fun activity and Jordan loves to eat so it was a win win situation. Oh ya and my kitchen kinda looked like a pumpkin bomb went off!!

I am really excited for Halloween. I don't think because its the holiday that I love, but because that means only 3 weeks until Thanksgiving break, and then three more weeks until the semester is over! This coming weekend my dad and older sister Carole Ann and her husband Jon are flying out to Utah so were gonna go down. I will be taking pictures for sure and will definitely post something after that. I'm trying to be better about posting more often. I look at everyone elses blogs and then I look at mine and its so boring compared to others. So I'm working on it! :)

Enjoy the pictures!

we put a candle in it just for this picture
I would feel bad if I burnt all four apts that are
connected to ours....so we blew it out after we
took the picture.

haha i thought this was funny.

Ended the night with popcorn and the proposal
(Jordan thought it would be cute to have popcorn
in his mouth while I took the picture...)
The beginning of the project....

After they were roasted...the house smelled so
getting ready to mash

I decided to freeze the leftovers...i probably wont
do this again for a loooong time!

and let me tell you...they were good

October Is Here!!!

I am so excited that it is already October!! The first month of school has gone by so fast, I hope it doesn't stop!! School is busy busy busy!! Its great though. I actually am enjoying this semester! Last semester I couldn't wait for it to be over. This semester is fun and hard at the same time. My health appraisal class is awesome. I get to have a client and help that person develop an exercise program and help her eat well and hopefully by the end of the project there will be a weight loss. I really like this class because this is actually what I want to do with my major. I want to help people change their life and meet their fitness and nutrition goals!! I get to work one hour a week volunteering in the wellness center on campus where I take peoples blood pressure, body composition, Vo2 max, muscular strength and endurance. Its pretty cool!

Jordan is enjoy the semester also. He is super duper busy! He has a lot of computer classes that he has big projects for. He is super smart so its a breeze for him. Well I don't know if its a breeze but I never hear him say his homework is too hard. So I just assume its easy peezy lemon squeezy. :)

We are very excited for October 23rd because we will get to see my dad, sister, brother, and brother in law down in Utah! That's only like 3 weeks away!! SWEET. I haven't seen my big sister and brother in law since Christmas and she is prego now so I am super happy I get to see her all cute and prego. She is due January 11, 2010 so she has a little more to go but def the cutest pregnant sibling in the Premont family...oh ya she is the only pregnant sibling in the Premont Family.

Well I just wanted to update the blog. I don't have any pictures because nothing has really happened where pictures were necessary. If we do something worth while I will bring the camera and post pictures.
