October Pumpkins

Micah came to play for a little while today.
I showed him about the pumpkin I bought on Saturday.
I think he liked it. He gave it a kiss.

Then for my ward's FHE we had a
Pumpkin Carving Contest.

Class Assignment

I am NOT a photographer.
I am NOT a person who thinks they are
talented in photography at all.

I am, however, in a photography class in school.
I needed an Art credit.
I can't draw or paint
so I thought this would be my best option.

I knew that photography was hard,
but it's even harder if you aren't creative at all.
I have a new appreciation for those with this talent.

My professor is always telling me,
"You need to push through more creatively, Lynae."
So here is my attempt:
My assignment was to take portraits of people.
My favorite part is everyone's
"Little Mermaid" hair.

{ Everyone getting ready. So fun! }

{ The Models and Myself. They're the best! And so willing to help }

{ Goofs :) }

{ Jillian }

{ Dorothy }

{ Brooke }

{ Amanda }

{ Becca }
{ haha, kinda dramatic but I like it. I have BEAUTIFUL friends } Thanks to all of you guys for helping me out!
I had so much fun with you all :)

I've been encouraged by my sister
quite a few times to join the movement
to participate in the
"30 Days of Blogging" Challenge.

ehh, I really didn't want to
but she wanted to hear my answers
so I emailed "Day One" to her.

Then I decided that I would post my answers
just for fun & for myself.

No, I'm not joining the movement.
I'm just doing this one post because I think
that it's the funnest out of all the
questions from the challenge.

I'm enjoying reading everyone else's
posts from this movement
but I just don't care to post
about my answers.

Oh and I'm skipping the part of the recent photo
because I just posted
the most recent pic two posts down.

So here it goes:
15 Interesting Facts about myself.
(Warning: Not that interesting.)
1- Sneezing is my favorite bodily function. It's exhilarating. When I was little and no one was around I would stick pens and pencils up my nose to make myself sneeze because it gives me such a natural high. I've also been told that I have "cute" sneezes which also adds to why it's my favorite.

2- I like to twirl. This only ever happens in the kitchen when I'm home alone. Sometimes I'll put on a twirly skirt just to make it more fun. I twirl while traveling around in a circle in the kitchen, hitting specific push off points: fridge, stove, sink, counter, repeat....

3- The one talent that I wish I had more than anything else is I wish I could sing. And I mean SING! I want to have a Whitney Houston voice and hit notes that no one else can.

4- I really do like having a clean house but my problem is getting motivated to clean. But I have been really working on keeping my spaces clean lately. I'm not perfect but I'm kinda proud of how well I've done. But as of right now I'm a little behind on my chores.

5- I love to read. I also like to discuss books with people. I wish that sometimes I had more energy to read. I know that reading doesn't take a whole lot of physical energy, but it takes me a lot of mental energy. That's why sometimes after a long day of school and homework I settle for the mindless entertainment of TV.

6- The older that I get, the more I've decided that I like caramel more than I like chocolate.

7- I'm not a big meat eater. I like chicken but not so much beef. Most of the time I have to talk myself into eating meat because thinking about what it is creeps me out. The meat I do eat MUST be super lean.

8- Since I work in a Library I try to read about something interesting everyday. Today I read about Sweden. Yesterday it was about Giant Squids. It just depends on what kind of books I'm putting back on the shelf that day.

9- I really love fresh flowers. If I was richer I would buy some every week. When I have my own home I plan to and then my children will remember how their mom always had fresh cut flowers on the kitchen table. Plus I think it would be so fun to own/work in a florist shop because you're always surrounded by a rainbow of colors. Flowers are always happy, they just make you feel good.

10- Shoes are my favorite accessory. Sometimes at large church functions like EFY or General Conference I have a hard time focusing because I'm too busy checking out everyone's shoes.

11- As I've gotten older, I've also become a crier. I used to just cry when something was wrong, but nowadays I cry over all sorts of "touching" stuff. I've cried during Project Runway, Say Yes to the Dress and anything (including commercials) that has to do with moms/kids.

12- I like to find/do things before everyone else does. Like I will love a song until it becomes really popular and then I'll really dislike it. I don't know if its because I get bored with it or because I don't want to be the same as other people. Maybe that's why I didn't want to post this on my blog. Plus, I don't want to assume that anyone would care to read this on my blog.

13- Heart Jewelry is my favorite. Not the cheap 80's style stuff, but the classy stuff. I think hearts are really pretty.

14- Even though I complain sometimes about going to college, I really enjoy learning. I think that where I'm frustrated with school is that I'm in classes that don't interest me so it all feels so monotonous. But I hope to never stop learning. When I get my teaching degree, I plan on continuing in my education but in other areas. Like possibly go to hair school, or maybe just get other degrees in areas that interest me.

15- I think about my future kids all the time. Sometimes that's my motivation for making good choices. I want them to be excited to be mine and that they will tell their friends in Heaven that they're proud they get to come down to me.

{ Kyli, Me & Dot about to ride "The Turn of the Century" at Lagoon }

This past weekend
I was able to have a getaway
from the stress of school and work
with my best friend, Dorothy.

We visited her family in Manti
(and all the little towns around there),

hung out with our friend Kyli,

partied it up at Frightmares at Lagoon,

locked the keys in the car &
waited an hour and a half in the Lagoon parking lot,

watched some crazy Youtube videos
with Kyli's boyfriend's roommates

ate a lot of fast food,

bought a Charlie Brown hot chocolate mug,

had lots of deep, best friend talks,

& had an all around great time :)

I Have...

Thee Best:
Weekend to have a Birthday,
Close Friends,
Loving Family.

My Class was Cancelled.
I got my work shifts covered.
I had a small appointment,
but that didn't take very much time.
Then it was off to St. George with the parents
for part 1 of the Celebration.
{ Dinner @ Texas Roadhouse }
{ Then it was off to the show @ Tuacahn }

{That's right... I got Tarzan Tickets for my Birthday! }

{ Like I said, I have thee Best Family}

{ The cute couples. Someday I hope not to be the fifth wheel...}

{ The following sequences of pictures are of us taking a cute picture,
and then having our true personalities take over.}

{The show was awesome! I loved it! }

Slept In.
Got to listen to both sessions of Conference.
Stayed in sweats all day.
Played with Micah in the evening.

Sunday: My Birthday
It was a GREAT day!
Full of great food,
inspiring talks from Church Leaders,
fun family time,
birthday surprises that I wasn't expecting
& memories that I'll always remember.

{haha, the same pose we have for every family picture we ever take}

{ Instead of a cake, I chose to have an Ice Cream Bar }

Thanks to everyone that made my day special.
Especially my Family.
I love you all :)
