Down-FALLS (haha get it?)
- you can feel winter coming. winter is cold.
- It's hunting season. so Hubby Moon is missing on weekends. (I spent 3 1/2 days without him! that's a record since being married. yes I realize I am pathetic.)
- kinda related to the last one, I hate telling Casey to kill a deer fast, I feel morbid, but I want him to get one so that he stops leaving me! So instead I tell him to catch a deer. It makes me feel better to imagine him catching a deer with his bare hands.
Positives (sorry couldn't think of a whitty pun...)
- The colors of provo canyon
- playing in leaves. Which we need to do again Al, think your neighbors would mind?
- playing in rain
- the smell of rain
- the mud that rain makes. I love mud.
- Halloween (any axcuse to buy candy)
- Knowing that Thanksgiving is getting close (any excuse to eat food! :))
- Getting to go to lots of Movies since the weather won't permit out door wanderings. (Casey doesn't like movies, I know, what a weirdo, but this time of year I can get him to take me! Or while he's hunting I go with friends. Woot movies and movie theatre popcorn!!!!)
- The perfect temperature to curl up with a blanket in my sweats.
So I know this is a strange/lame post but I had to dedicate something to my favorite season and it kind of lets everyone know what we're up to; Casey, hunting, Me, same old same old. :) I hope everyone's enjoying fall!

Subject: Maxi Pads
This is an actual letter from an Austin woman sent to American company
Proctor and Gamble regarding their feminine products. She really gets
rolling after the first paragraph. It's PC Magazine's 2007 editors'
choice for best webmail-award-winning letter.
Dear Mr. Thatcher,
I have been a loyal user of your 'Always' maxi pads for over 20 years
and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core
or Dri-Weave absorbency, I'd probably never go horseback riding or salsa
dancing, and I'd certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach
in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your
revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough
to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can't tell
you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there's a little F-16
in my pants.
Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? I'm guessing you
haven't. Well, my time of the month is starting right now. As I type, I
can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just
a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I'll be transformed into
what my husband likes to call 'an inbred hillbilly with knife skills.'
Isn't the human body amazing?
As Brand Manager in the Feminine-Hygiene Division, you've no doubt seen
quite a bit of research on what exactly happens during your customer's
monthly visits from 'Aunt Flo'. Therefore, you must know about the
bloating, puffiness, and cramping we endure, and about our intense mood
swings, crying jags, and out-of-control behavior. You surely realize
it's a tough time for most women.
The point is, sir, you of all people must realize that America is just
crawling with homicidal maniacs in Capri pants... Which brings me to the
reason for my letter. Last month, while in the throes of cramping so
painful I wanted to reach inside my body and yank out my uterus, I
opened an Always maxi-pad, and there, printed on the adhesive backing,
were these words: 'Have a Happy Period.'
Are you f------ kidding me? What I mean is, does any part of your tiny
middle-manager brain really think happiness - actual smiling, laughing
happiness, is possible during a menstrual period? Did anything mentioned
above sound the least bit pleasurable? Well, did it, James? FYI, unless
you're some kind of sick S&M freak, there will never be anything 'happy'
about a day in which you have to jack yourself up on Motrin and Kahlua
and lock yourself in your house just so you don't march down to the
local Walgreen's armed with a hunting rifle and a sketchy plan to end
your life in a blaze of glory.
For the love of God, pull your head out, man! If you have to slap a
moronic message on a maxi pad, wouldn't it make more sense to say
something that's actually pertinent, like 'Put down the Hammer' or
'Vehicular Manslaughter is Wrong',
Sir, please inform your Accounting Department that, effective
immediately, there will be an $8 drop in monthly profits, for I have
chosen to take my maxi-pad business elsewhere. And though I will
certainly miss your Flex-Wings, I will not for one minute miss your
brand of condescending bullshit. And that's a promise I will keep.
Always. . .

Next was the wonderful Brad Paisley. Oh how I love this man ;). We went to the concert with Logan and Natalie (thanks for buying the tickets Nat!) and then discovered Casssie and Michael were there! So we had great company! We missed the opening act due to the BYU football game, but we got to see Dierks Bentley, Who was GREAT! He sounds exactly like he does on radio. He even did "What Was I Thinking" which always reminds me of speeding through unpaved areas with Mickey after fixing a broken down truck. And then of course there was Brad. The videos he played were unique and fabulous, and he sounded great as well! He sang most of my favorite Brad songs and the lightening and a little rain made the concert even better!!! We jammed out to "online" "I'm still a guy" "Welcome to the Future" and many more songs and listening to "Then" live made it even better!!! (I love that song. It had to be written for me and Casey.) Anyway, He was FABULOUS!
The concerts were so much fun Thanks Maeg! Thanks Logan, Natalie, Cassie, Michael, and Casey. And a big fat thank you to Keith and Brad for being dream boats.

- Ice Age the movie (1 and 2). Man it gets me every time.
- Pop goes the Weasel. (or Plop goes the fat weasel)
- Skills sleeping on her back.
- Ali. Any one who knows her knows that you will crack up at least once while with her.
- "My lasagne!"
- Batty's rap in Ferngully
- Thinking about Logans Gay Panguin belly flop.
- Thinking about Mom beating Logan while trying to act out "abduction" then peeing her pants
- "That chilli must be getting to me!"
- Nathan Baum wearing my shirt
- "The adventures of man hands and fluff"
- speaking giggle
- Baby bottle pops
- Ben and Jerry's
- Chubby hubby ice cream
- Sleeping on the street in LA
There are many things that make me crack up. These are just the ones I can think of today. And yes, I'm cracking up as I write this! :)

This had me cracking up hystarically! Casey was sleeping and Skills went in and this is how she chose to lay. I wish the tent was tall enough to get a full body shot 'cause Casey's hands look just like Skills. Crossed on his chest. She wants to be just like Daddy. Hahaha!
I'm such a fat kid with my s'mores! They were SO messy!
Casey with one of the cool red rock cliffs behind him.
Ooohhh sweet... the cute engaged couple spent much of their time staring deep into each others eyes. haha! we had fun making fun of them :)
I had so many good pics of these two that it was hard to pic one. But I think this one pretty much captures the "red-neck Yacht Club" theme that we were going for. :)
Here's the two best friends :) I tried to get both of there faces but man they wrestle too much. But at least you get the gist of how insanely dirty they were the whole time. They spent a lot of time digging holes and then fighting over who got to lay in it.

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.It is not just in some; it is in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously giveother people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear,our presence automatically liberates others.

So anyway, then we get into this little debate with the fam on Sunday; are all men physical touch? yes all men need sex, it's biology. But is that more important than anything else? Most of the family thinks that most or all men are. I disagree. I think a little physical touch is important to everyone, especially kids, but that doesn't mean it's the most important thing for showing love. I think my Dad's is acts of service, but mom disagrees (ew!). Any way it gave me a lot to think about and I recommend this book to couples. I think if you want to express love you have to be willing to do things that aren't for you; if not a void will form and love can diminish. I just wish I could figure out my mother in laws love language, I want her to know we love and appreciate her but I don't know how. I'll keep my eyes open. But yes if I randomly tell you "oh your love language is.... " now you know why. I'm only slightly crazy. I'm just trying to solve the "are all men physical touch?" mystery, I'll be psychoanalyzing everyone til I know.

So quite frequently Casey shakes his head at me for my childish behaviors. Mostly he supports them and just kisses me for being crazy. So here are the confessions for the day even though most people already know these things about me. I've always liked this picture from our wdding. I thought it was appropriate. :)
- I still sleep with a stuffed animal. His name is Hershey and he sleeps with me and Casey.
- I still have a "wubby" and I love it (my green football helmet blanket). Since I now have Casey I don't need it all the time anymore.... only when there's no Casey or I'm sick.
- When I have a bad day or I'm sick I watch Disney movies. And yes I have most of them memorized. And yes I sing out loud with every song.
- I still run and jump on my bed when it's dark. It's a habit from youth when I thought a giant rat was under my bed.
- I love to jump in puddles and play in the rain. Now many people will say this is not childish, just a good time, but some disagree.
- I wish I had a princess back pack. And I wish that grown ups could wear tee-shirts with characters on them. I think some ones favorite character shows a lot about there personality. I would wear superman one day, pocohantas the next and pinky and the brain would be tossed some where in there as well.
- This one I wouldn't say is "childish" more like pre-teen. I read books that are totally easy reads. I don't like books that make me think too much. Right now I'm reading "vampire Diaries".
Well that's enough for today. I'd like to do a spot light weekly of my heroes. I have so many, but I'd like to get pictures first. Hopefully that'll start soon!

I guess the main thing is we're now back to being so busy that we have little time to play or talk to anyone and little time to be together. Did you know the average college graduate remembers 6% or less of what they learned in college? And it's SO BORING! I really was excited and positive about my classes, and I still have high hopes, but man my life is dull right now. I crave social interaction; I'm not getting too much of that. I get to talk to Michelle at work, Casey nights before bed and my family on Sundays, I'm trying to fit some other people in but it's just not happening. Oh well... one more year! And I just realized this blog sounds like I'm depressed or something; I'm not! haha! my life is the best life anyone could possibly ask for, I have so many great people around me! I'm just complaining because I don't get enough time with those great people! I didn't even call ali on her birthday! she got a lame text! So that's my new years resolution I suppose. To use my free time to stay close to the great people in my life who I love, and to find free time in which to do it in.
I apologize if you wasted time reading this. But it helped me work out some things; so I feel better now... The world revolves around me!

Also, we have a new nephew, Jesse Brent Moon. He's adorable! I wish I could somehow get pictures on here because I'm so proud of Casey's bro and sister in law. They are so excited and such cute parents! But, as me and Casey don't have a computer I'll have to figure out how to get pictures to work.... hm... Any way, Jesse was born on Casey's birthday (which for some reason Casey has always wanted! I'm way too selfish to share my birthday. ;) ) And we are so excited to have him. Casey's nieces and nephews are so adorable! We used to fight over who's (whose?) were cuter but now I love them all so much! We just need Lance and Lexi and Robin and Brian to move to Utah so I can see my 3 nephews and Caseys 2 nieces more! But I am really glad that we have plenty close by!
