That Time I Stuck My Foot In My Mouth. At Work

Okay fine--- I've stuck my foot in my mouth at work lots of times. But this one just barely happened.

Also, can we pause for just a second and acknowledge how weird that saying is? In reality, my lack of flexibility would never allow my foot to reach my mouth. And if I say something stupid does that mean I already put my foot in my mouth, or that I need to do that?

Back to my story. My boss came into work today all pleased about these new shoes he bought and asked my opinion. It was obvious he wanted validation and I'm usually pretty good and giving that. But for some reason I was struck mute. And then I kind of let out a prolonged "um?" that was an octave above my normal voice. What is wrong with me?

But I didn't stop there. I told him they kind of reminded me of polio shoes and I was half expecting to see a brace extending out the heel and up his leg. Seriously?! Who says stuff like that?

Me apparently. That's not only offensive to him, but quite possibly to the entire polio community. I'm sorry.

He told me to stop talking after that.

I'm Thankful Five

I'm so excited for Thanksgiving!! I thought it would be a good idea to run a 4 mile race in the morning which will probably be lame, but after that it's gonna be a great day.

I've actually already put up a few (very few) Christmas decorations and I may or may not be listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album right now...but I'm still excited for Thanksgiving!! Swear. The only reason I decorated early was cuz I got in major cleaning mode at my house and decided to get everything organized and set up at once. And I was in major cleaning mode cuz I got new furniture for my room and had to get that all put together. My room actually looks like a grown-up room now---not your average college dorm. Not that there's anything wrong with college dorms. But I have an actual bed now, with a matching dresser and even a night stand. Like I might actually be in my house semi-permanently or something. Weird.

You know what else is weird? This picture from our ward Thanksgiving party.
There are two boys that were cut out because the person taking the picture didn't realize they were leaning in and posing? At least, he looks like he was leaning...

Happy Thanksgiving!!
What are you Thankful Five?

So, this one time...

My cousin Becky thinks I need to blog again. I think she's crazy. Anyway. I was gonna tell you about all the awesome things for which I'm thankful---tis the season and all---but then I decided to tell you a story instead. I went to a gas station. To get gas. And the first pump I went to had a screen that didn't work. So after trying for a few minutes to figure out what to do, I gave up and pulled up to the next pump. Only I didn't pull up far enough. And after putting in my card and entering my zip code, I realized that the hose couldn't reach my car. Awesome. So I had to put the hose back in the pump, turn my car back on, pull forward, turn my car back off, get the hose back out...but then the pump started being temperamental and wouldn't work and I needed gas!! But also I was really embarrassed. So I drove away to another gas station. And this station wouldn't authorize my card till I went inside. So that's what I did. And I finally got gas. But it was a nightmare. The end.

I Feel Like Everyone Needs To See This

On a different note---when did blogger become super different? I almost created a new blog without realizing it when all I wanted to do was write a new post.

Memorial Day Fun

During Memorial Weekend we always visit the East Lawn Cemetery where my grandparents are buried. He served as a Colonel in the Air Force and she was the most patriotic women I ever knew. It's a beautiful cemetery and I love seeing the flags they put up on that weekend.
It was a wonderful, relaxing, not-do-anything-important weekend. I loved it! Little kids played outside, we had a birthday celebration, and enjoyed shish-ka-bobs. I wish there could be a weekend like this every month!
Cutest twin girls ever? I think so.
Grandpa feeding Macie her first cantaloupe and teaching her how to play Mormon Bridge. I love how tiny her hands are next to his.
Alli blocking Christian from blowing out her candles.
It was a little too cold to swim, but the boys loved it anyway

Because Nothing but Reality TV Could Make Me Wanna Blog Again

So, I'm watching the Bachelorette (yes I watch it) (and I like it) and I keep hearing the phrase, "Today could be the first day of the rest of my life." Well. You know what? EVERY day is the first day of the rest of your life. That's just silly. Also, please bless that the Utah boy gets different hair. What is that?

Cell Phone Saturday

Because I'm nothing I'd not a follower. Hunger Games with two of my favorite people. It's a crummy picture, but we were late cuz we got lost. And walked into the wrong theater. Without going to the ticket counter first. Cuz that's how we roll.
