2011 List: 21.Clark Planetarium movie

This weekend we checked another thing off our list!  I bought a Groupon back in May for the Clark Planetarium because I knew we wanted to go there sometime this year.  We took advantage of it this weekend and headed up to The Gateway for a walk around the mall, a trip to one of my favorite stores and then to the planetarium for some fun.  We loved all of the displays and activities they had there.

Jordan with zero-gravity on the moon and me acting/ not knowing how to act like a martian. Jordan told me this pose was good enough.   After all of the playing we went to a Cosmic Light Show in the Hansen Dome Theater.  We had a great night!

10 Current Thoughts:


1.  Everyday so far this week (Sunday, Monday, and today), Jordan has asked for a treat.  "Can we make a treat?"  So Sunday I made No Bake Cookies.  My favorite kind of cookies.  They are long gone by now so tonight we made Brown Sugar Cookies.  The main reason why we made these cookies instead of any other kind of treat is because we are out of sugar. I wonder why we are out of sugar?  Could it be because of this question: "Can we make a treat?"  Anyway, they are delicious. [recipe found here]

2. I saw this pumpkin carving today and I thought it was so great that I wanted to share it with you.  Those cheeks...those finger marks carved into the pumpkin.  Wow.

3.  I recently subscribed to the Daily Herald and started following this blog.  I want to try my hand at couponing.  We'll see how that goes....I'll let you know.

4. This thought gets 3 pictures...all pictures of food...actually all pictures of earrings.  First we have a fried egg, second some buttered toast, and third corn on the cob.  Can you believe it?  This etsy shop makes jewelry out of small foods.  Jordan thinks it's weird, I think they're really cute, but I'm not sure how many of them I would actually wear...maybe some nice Avocado Bobby Pins?  Ok just kidding.  I wouldn't wear those.  I think I might wear the Blueberry earrings though.  What do you think?

5.  Remember how I already graduated from high school and have been in college for 4 years now?  Well then why have I been going back to high school you might ask?  Well that's because I might just be a high school teacher.  Or junior high.  I have discovered that high schools are so much more enjoyable when you are actually choosing to go to them, much more enjoyable when you aren't actually a high schooler.

6.  I am currently registered for a spinning class next semester.  I have always thought spinning would be fun.  We'll just have to wait and see how I feel about that in a few months....

7.  Every once in a while I get this feeling...a small emptiness inside, and that's when I know it's about time for another Ikea visit.  It's called Ikea withdrawal.  I'm having that right now.  I just want to buy thousands of Ikea frames.  and everything else they sell as well.

8.  I heard there's supposed to be 8-12 inches of snow in Castle Rock, Colorado in the morning.  Is this true?  My sources (facebook) may or may not be 100% reliable.  But all I know is that I'm glad that snow wont be here tomorrow.

I will apologize for these next two in advance. So, I'm sorry, but it really is on my mind.
9.  30 days until Thanksgiving.  That means 28 days until Thanksgiving Break.

10.  61 days until Christmas.  Oh and for those who are interested 49 days until my birthday. Woo!


Saturday afternoon we remembered that we were invited to a Halloween Party for that night. We texted, costumes?  Yes.  Dang.

So we headed upstairs to talk to Dorethy (our 82-year-old landlady) to see if she had anything we could wear.  She found this great suit for Jordan and coincidentally a perfectly matching dress for me.  We felt like we were going to the 70's.

Halloween usually isn't my holiday, but check out our pumpkin this year and our prom pose...Pretty good, right?

Some other notable costumes:

I just had to include this picture, because it reminded me so much of this other picture from our wedding.

What we can gather from this: Jordan and Jared are d-o-r-k-s.

It was a great night!  Happy [early] Halloween!

P.S. What are you guys dressing up as this Halloween?

Clicks - Fall Leaves


2 months from now, in the bleak winter, I want to remember what these leaves look like.  I love all of the colors.  Fall is a pretty time of year.



One of my favorite activities this fall has been riding our bikes to the football games.  I love it. But I guess I just love bike rides all the time.

Happy Weekend!

Do any of you like The Killers?  I have liked them since high school.  My friend Li-Sha posted this video on her blog and I thought I would pass it along because I like it so much.  Take a looksee...

Fall treat


The other night I made my favorite fall treat:  Apple Pie Caramel Apples.  They were delicious!  What's not to love about caramel, white chocolate, and cinnamon sugar?  Oh yeah and apples...

What is your favorite fall treat?
