I have the best dad in the world!!! I get to go home to Vancouver tonight!!!!

I haven't been able to go home for Thanksgiving for a long time because I've always been away at school. Now that I'm an adult (ha!), I can take time off work and go see my family!

I can't wait.

Yea Yea, I'm one of the nerds that read the whole series. I read the first three about a year ago, so I've been anticipating the release of the Twilight movie for quite some time.

My cousin Chelsey bought tickets to the midnight showing of the movie about a week in advance. I was pretty excited. Who cares that I had to work the next morning at 7:00 AM? So I took the journey out to Mesa, but I was not about to stand in line by myself with all the weird Twilight lovers. So here is a picture of me in the car anxiously awaiting for everyone else to show up...


I got bored, so here is a picture of my toes.

Finally, we got in the theater! There were so many weird people there. A part of me wishes I had bought a shirt. Mine would have been a "Team Jacob" shirt. I guess I'm not a hopeless romantic. All the other girls had "I love Edward" or "Team Edward" shirts.

Whitney finally showed up...and brought me a Monster (energy drink)!

So, at 12:01 the movie started....and so did the screams from 200 teeny-bopper girls. Annoying. They would scream or giggle everytime Edward would come on screen. is my reaction to the movie:

It was not what I expected. I know the book is really cheesy but the movie took it to a whole new level. If you haven't seen it, I wont ruin for you but needless to say- I wont be rushing to see the next ones that come out.

Better luck next time, Directors.

November Thus Far....

Random Thoughts N' Such:

- Time is FLYING by here in Arizona. It's hard to believe that I've already been here for about 8 months.
- Me and Heather are still working on our racquetball skills. We also have become very dedicated to a kickboxing class on wednesday nights. The instructor kicks our butts, but it's so fun.
- I might not love my job, but I love the people I work with. So, that makes it worth it....sometimes.
- I miss living with Kirk and Whitney and across the street from my Aunt/Uncle/Cousins.
- I miss my family more then anything in the world. Living far away sucks.
Here are some random things that have been keeping me busy!
Rita's Bridal Shower- My work peeps.
(Chelsea, Me, Rita, Rebecca and Heather)

Rita's Fiance is so wild.

Heather's Birthday!!!
They made me go to Sushi...I ordered Chicken.

The happy couple.

Chelsea Graduated with her MBA!!!

Sophia's Birthday!
(No, Sophia is not in this picture)

Twin Day.

Damien wanted to be my twin too.

That's all...for now.

Halloween was very fun this year! The weekend before Halloween there was a University of Phoenix party. It was actually ment for the "employee team"...but I have special hooks ups, so I got me and Heather invited. We threw together our costumes pretty last minute, but they turned out great.


Heather and Lisa- Friends from training!

I liked my "tattoo".... if you couldn't tell.


For actual Halloween weekend we went to Las Vegas!!!
Heather had never been to Vegas before and her boyfriend has been in Utah working for a little while so we met halfway! There were a total of 6 of us in one hotel room, but all the pictures are basically of me and Valerie. Heather was off with her boyfriend and the other people that came were kinda weird- so we did our own thing! Sadly, my camera died while on the trip, but I took as many pictures as I could.
(Just a warning, practically every picture is of me and Valerie.
It was the Valerie/Brannigan Show. )

Me and Val on the shuttle.

We're cute.
I was up a whole $5!

Valley B Duo.

People watching.

I was a cop and she was a school girl bully.

Cop & Gangsta Mafia.

We met up with my friend Jeremy!

True statement.

And this is the final picture my camera could handle :(
Vegas was great! The 5 blisters I have we well worth it. Hope everyone else had a great Halloween as well!!
