It has been a reeeeallly long time since I posted and I have so much to talk about!...
First of all, our little baby girl turned one year old on November 4th! I can't believe we've had her for almost a year. She's definitely added a whole new dimension to our lives. Everyone says it is great training for kids, and while I don't know first hand, I'm pretty sure they're right. Potty training lasted FOREVER, supposedly poodle mixes are quick learners, but I beg to differ.
This Saturday was Apple Cup. My Mom came into town with some of her friends so I invited her to come sit with me so Nate could go help down on the field, and he did not object :) The first half of the game was a little slow. The huskies scored first, which was not surprising but still a little disheartening. Things didn't start to get interesting until the very end of the fourth quarter. The score was 10 - 7 in the huskies favor when Lopina threw a 60 something yard pass to put us in field goal range, which we made to tie the game! Two overtimes later, the game was in our hands after a field goal... the huskies could have had it if they had made just one of their 3 field goal attempts, but they didn't :) I love beating them!!! The huskies are still the only winless team in the entire country, talk about icing on the cake!
On Sunday, Nate took me to see Twilight. I am sooo not the monster/sci-fi/anything remotely scary type, but I am obsessed with these books. The movie was great, I was very happy with the cast they picked, but movie versions of books never completely satisfy... especially when you know there's more to come! My palms got pretty clammy during the intense make-out scene... for those of you who have not read the book, Bella and Edward do not fornicate because he could hurt her with his super-vampire strength, much to my dismay. I love a steamy love scene, but the make-out scene was still pretty hot! Alright, enough of that :)
On and end note, I cannot wait to put up our Christmas decorations. Since this is our first Christmas together, we had to stock up on some new decor. We went to Spokane to register for wedding gifts a couple weekends ago, and while we were at Home Depot, we loaded up on Christmas stuff too. If you are looking for a good deal on some really cute stuff, that is the place to go. I'll post some pictures after we get everything set up, can't wait!
