The Dirty Dirty Dash!

On September 17, we went up to Midway to run in the 10k Dirty Dash with our besties! It was definitely one of the funnest things we have ever done!!! This was my first race ever, and I was super nervous the night before, and the morning of. I have never ran more than 3 miles at one time....and here I was expected to run 6?! oh man....the pressure was on.

 Luckily (for me) the race was broken up by obstacles. I was so grateful for these, I needed the breathers!


The boys were quite talented jumping over these

The Jello shot, (in my hand) was a lifesaver!!

Can you see the people clear out there?....yes, we had to trudge through the lake!!

I can't wait to do this again next year!!

Sanctify Yourselves

This is a very powerful video that was just posted by the Church. It is one of my favorites!

So...our very old ipod is showing this:

When I plug it into the computer, it doesn's show up. itunes doesn't recognize it, so then I can't restore it. Plus, I don't want to restore it, cuz then it'll erase all of our awesome songs!!! AHHH!!!
I wish I wouldn't known this was going to happen, so I could've had the chance to take all the songs off the ipod and put them on my computer.
dang it.
I have googled everything, and tried everything that I know how to do. I can't fix it!

Has this happened to anyone?!

Not sure why I'm blogging about this...I guess it's just something to blog about!!!
These are mine and Brett's favorite celebrities that we have some serious crushes on.

 Let's start with Brett:
Jenna Fischer
She's funny, and beautiful. Why wouldn't he love her?! Plus,
Brett's favorite show is the Office.
T Swift
After Brett's mission, I showed him a video of
T Swift singing "Run" by George Strait. That's
the moment he fell in love. And he loves her
awkward dance moves.

Julie Bowen
Modern Family is Brett's 2nd favorite show. So of course he
has a favorite female!

Emma Stone
Who hasn't fallen in love with her?! Seriously, she's so pretty,
awesome, and hilarious. I could never get sick of watching her.
And neither could Brett.

My turn!!

Channing Tatum
Hello handsome. I've loved him ever since I laid my
eyes on him. Look at that jaw line!

Ryan Gosling.
I know I'm not alone on this one! He's the perfect
romantic guy to put in a movie!

Christian Bale
He was my favorite boy in the Newsies. And ever since, I've loved
every movie he is in.

Liam Hemsworth
My newest obsession.
Yes, he is 3 years younger than me.

Young Women Retreat

A couple weekends ago, our entire department got together for a retreat in a small place called Wallsburg. (A few minutes away from Deer Creek.) It was such a beautiful day, filled with fun! Brett finally got to meet the people I work with, and talk about every day.
Here are some pictures from the event:
(I have Amanda to thank for most of these, I didn't take my camera.)

This Place was AMAZING! Seriously, it could be called paradise. I
couldn't help but think how long it would take to mow the grass.

this is to the right of the barn.

The other side of the barn.
Obviously I really like the barn.

Eating our lunch: Hot Dogs, salad, chips,
and home made Root Beer (my favorite).

Me and Brett going down the HUGE water slide.

You can barely tell that is me on the zipline. This was my favorite thing!
Once you get to the middle of the pond, you let go and splash in the water!
We might as well call it a lake, cuz I have never seen a pond this big.

organized the whole event.
