So halloween is almost a week away, and for those of you who dont know it, I LOVE HALLOWEEN!! Mainly because I get to get dressed up in a costume!! I have a slight dilema this year, though, I cant find anything I want to be..So i am asking for advice from all of my friends. Help me decide what to be for halloween!! Matt and I always do a couples costume so send your CREATIVE ideas my way!!

Fall is here, let the traditions BEGIN!

I love this time of year! We have a fun tradition to do dinner in a pumpkin and then carve pumpkins and watch a fun movie like Hocus Pocus! This is a fun activity if you have kids and it makes a great easy dinner. Try it you'll love it!!

1 onion

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 1/2 to 2 lb. ground beef

1 1/2 c. cooked rice

1 (8 oz.) can sliced water chestnuts, drained

2 tbsp. soy sauce

2 tbsp. brown sugar

1 (4 oz.) can sliced mushrooms, drained

GO SEE BODY WORLDS 3 Exhibit....I just got back and it was amazing! It was one of the most interesting exhibits I have ever seen, you are missing out if you dont go!!

Today is the day....

Body Worlds EXHIBIT!!!
I am so excited to go and see Body Worlds today. This is an exhibit of real people who have donated their bodies to science and have been preserved in a special way . All of the cadavers have been displayed in different ways to show the human body in a more interesting way than just looking at a cadaver on a table..Its at the Leonardo at the Library in SLC and this is supposed to be an amazing exhibit. I am SUPER excited to go and see what its all about!!
