I Got Tagged! Geeze took long enough :) jk. I was tagged by Corie Green;
If you get tagged,Link the person who tagged you. Mention the rules on your blog. Tell 6 unspectacular quirky things about you or your family. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.

1. We are a popcorn family. And when i say 'we'... I mostly mean me. Everytime we watch a movie (or House Marathons) we have to pop the corn before we push PLAY. And according to me, no bowl of popcorn is complete without either m&m's or chocolate chips melting in it.

2. Speaking of House... WE LOVE THAT SHOW. House and The Office are our 'must see shows' every week. And lucky for us, every sunday theres a marathon of House on. He is soo funny. And if you've ever seen it, you know what i mean. He's such a jerk but it cracks me up. And the crazy thing is... in real life he has this sissy voice and an english accent! You'd never know it! Seriously... If i find the interview we saw him on i'll post it. Its weird. And The Office... well if you've seen the show i dont need to explain anything. Its usually the funniest half hour of the week. And I'm pretty sure matt has a crush on Pam

3. Matt IS the Dog Whisperer. Maybe its because he read 3 books on dog training/psychology before he even got Blue, or maybe its because him and blue have an unusually close relationship ( I know they're in each other's heads)... but He's the best dog trainer/owner ever. And Sometimes I wonder if he would choose them over me if he had to choose. The other night i was cracking up, Matt was of course, wrestling with Blue, and he said to me, "What if Blue is actually a person inside of a dog's body. Sometimes i really think he is... he's so... human-like. Seriously Heather, think about it". So i thought about. For 2 seconds. And now i'm thinking my husband is a little crazy :)

4. We have been extremely lucky our first year of marriage. Its been an AWESOME 7 months. March-Honeymoon (Mexican Rivera Cruise).... May-Costa Rica!!!.... September-Hawaii!!!!
But believe me.... we're probably not doing anything for the next 5 years. And i'm ok with that... We always enjoy a nice weekend at home :)

5. Because Matt went on his mission to Korea, we have korea in our office, our bookshelves, our livingroom, our restaurant choices, our kitchen cupboards, And i'm not complaining. I really enjoy it! Korean food is probably one of my fav foods now! Its awesome and everyone should try it at least once. But theres is no way you'd ever get me to sleep in our office for a night. He has freaky korean masks hanging up in there... and little statues. But i think its cool learning about a different culture. And i like hearing Matt speak it every once in a while.

6. We have the greatest family ever. We're so blessed. Matts family and my family are so different from each other, but both unblelievably awesome. After getting married, I gained 2 more sisters and 3 more brothers :) And Matty gained 4 sisters and 4 bros. And we both got lucky with parents-in-law. I've heard horror stories before from friends and family about the dreaded in-laws, and I consider myself extremely lucky.

So... I tag Jessica, Shauna, Brit, Becky, Kristin, Andrea and.... Whoever else hasn't updated their blog in a while :) Enjoy!

Blue and Lydie

Matty found this video of our neice Lydia playin with Blue and wanted me to post it.
Its pretty cute if I do say so myself :)

The other day we took a trip to the greatest place on earth besides Disneyland...
While Matt's brother Justin signed the kids into the 'Smaland Playland', I took a trip to the bathroom. And it was the coolest bathroom ever. So cool... that I was excited to get home to blog about a bathroom.

Cool thing #1-Toilet Handles

Yeah... Pull up if you went #1 and push down if you went #2... I wanted to try up AND down to see what the difference was but i figured that would defeat the purpose of the water-saving handle.

Cool Thing #2- Dyson Hand Dryers

I'm already in love with dyson vacuums, but their hand dryer is the sweetest thing ever. My hands were dry in 10 seconds. AMAZING. And I didn't even have to wipe the extra off on my pants because I was too impatient.


Oh and the rest of the store was awesome too :)

Zero Creativity

I love Halloween... But for some reason I spend way too much time thinking about what we are going to be... Heck, we dont even have any plans for Halloween but i'm going crazy not being able to think of any ideas. All of matt's ideas consist of him being something big and scary and me being bloody and usually dead...

Last year we were Jack and Sally from Nightmare before Christmas. They were actually pretty sweet costumes.

Any ideas?

Camping and Twilight

Well I wanted to post this a month ago when it happened, but i've been waiting for my sister to send me the pictures.... For Labor Day we went camping up around Show Low. My sister Jessica and her family and in-laws were camping so we set up kinda in the same area. And Todd and Kristin joined us for a couple days. The dogs had a blast, Jessica and Troy have Zoey's sister Tayah so it was kinda fun seeing them play together, and Blue loves being able to run around all day.And the boys got to feel like men chopping wood and building HUGE fires.And Todd let us shoot his gun. It was sweet.

So to explain the pictures below... I'm a Twilight freak. I was immediately obsessed with those books. Matt even started reading it with me ( and enjoyed it) until Todd informed him that it was written mostly for teenage girls. I still tell him that if he wants to read them I promise I wont tell anyone... My sisters all ordered these shirts that say "team Edward" or "team Jacob" depending on which character you liked more. So i had to get one... and I couldn't get me one without getting Kristin one. We had to be dramatic about it because we didn't tell our husbands about them before this trip... and when we took our sweaters off revealing the shirts we got the reaction we pretty much expected; eye rolling and "Are you kidding me"'s.

We're not ashamed

Anyways, Jess thanks for finally letting me have the pics and Matt, thanks for putting up with me and my obsessions.
