Anyway, this weekend Danny and I had to attend an Engaged Encounter retreat. It is one of the things we have to do as part of our marriage preparation process. I honestly thought it would be a lot more interesting and helpful than it was. We had to write like 8 love letters to each other over the course of the weekend. That was way more than Danny and I can handle so we skipped out on writing the last few and just talked to each other instead. The funniest part of the whole weekend was when Danny wrote me a letter (by letter I mean 2 sentence paragraph) where he wrote something about us being in a "We"relationship. We thought it was super funny but that is probably just because we had been locked in a room talking about our feelings for 8 hours.
On another note, this weekend I get to see all of my best friends in the whole wide world!!!! All of the Dallas bridesmaids and Ash (the lone Houston bridesmaid) are throwing Danny and I a wedding shower over at Jon and Shellie's house and my besties from back home, Alexis and Erica, are even coming into town for it! All of my faves in one place! My mom and grandma are also flying up and Danny and I are taking them and his parents to see A Christmas Carol (the play not the movie) on Sunday night. Danny and I went to see this production last year and it was so good so I am excited to see it again. Hopefully it will put us all in the Christmas spirit!
Stay tuned for the cutest Christmas card you have ever seen!

Yummy eye candy
Lately I have been contemplating one of life's biggest mysteries; do I think Jacob or Edward is hotter and which would I date if I could. That is a really tough call. I like Jacob's tan skin and he is def way more attractive than he was in Twilight (thank goodness he got rid of that long hair)but I don't know how I feel about werewolves. Ender and I shed enough as it is so I don't think I am up for the challenge of a werewolf. My roomba would not be happy with me. Edward on the other hand is the hottest vampire I have ever seen and he seems so sensitive yet manly at the same time. Great combo. And he can play the piano. Maybe he could finally teach me to play that keyboard I bought in a moment of weakness two years ago when I thought I wanted to become a piano player.
Hopefully the movie will help me make my decision, you know, in case I ever end up in the made up town of Forks, Washington and am forced to make a choice between the two.

Guy: Fee Fi Fo Fum you are still on the copier!
Me: Yeah this is my last one.
Guy: You having fun?
Me: Uhhh, yeah. (Seriously dude, how fun can making copies be?)
Guy: What if someone just walked in here and sliced their finger off on this (referring to the big paper cutting contraption in the room)?
Me: .....(I had no clue what to say so I just stared at the copy machine)
Guy: When I was in jr. high some guy wanted to see if the stapler would staple through his finger so he put it under the stapler and pushed it down and it did!!!
Me: I am all finished here.
This guy was seriously messing with the boundaries of acceptable social behavior.

Ender and Ollie spent the weekend with Danny's parents and were completely worn out when Danny and I got them back to my house. This is what they did all of Sunday evening:
Hope everyone has a great Halloween weekend!

The dogs ran around in their Halloween outfits while the rest of us carved our pumpkins.
Ender was a grey squirrel and pretty much hated life. He was too embarrassed here to even look at the camera!
Oliver was the cutest turtle I have ever seen. I don't think he even realized he had a costume on most of the time. That dog just loves life! He also loves this little lady.
Here is Ollie with his girlfriend Shiloh in her Halloween dress complete with matching bow.
This year we had some great first time competitors which included Eric and Lindsey, Jen, and Bear and Mallory.
The Freeds and Jen decided to go collegiate with their pumpkins.
I realize that this is a totally horrible picture, but here are the rest of the pumpkins from the night.
My pumpkin is the one on the far left and is a scary scarecrow. I won the award for "Scariest Pumpkin".
Jens UT Longhorn is next in line. She was awarded "Most Spirited"
After everyone left I put my pumpkin and Danny's pumpkin out on my front porch for the world to enjoy.
I am pretty sure these things will be rotten in the next two days or eaten by a wild animal but they were too pretty not to display!

Can you believe that? I can't, especially when he takes self portraits of himself like this. I can't remember where we were going after he took this picture, but I know he asked me if he could leave the house like that. Uh no, I don't think so.
In a few days we will also celebrate our 2 year anniversary, I can't believe that either.
Danny is my favorite person to be around hands down and he makes me laugh more than anyone I have ever met.
This year we aren't having a big birthday bash like we normally do. We had plans last weekend and we have plans next weekend so we are just going to do a nice dinner at one of our favorite restaurants tonight.
Hope you have a wonderdul day! You are the best thing that could have happened to us! We hope all your birthday wishes come true!
Mitzi, Ender and Ollie
All in all it was a good weekend/Monday minus the day I had to live in the dark.
Oh and today I start level 2 of the Thirty Day Shred, wish me luck!

Kick the dogs out of the kitchen.
3 egg whites
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water
In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites and sugar on high speed of an electric mixer until frothy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low, and stir in melted butter, vanilla, almond extract, water and flour one at a time, mixing well after each. Consistency should resemble pancake batter. Spoon the batter into 3 inch circles on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges begin to brown slightly. Quickly remove one at a time, place a message in the center, and fold in half. Fold the ends of the half together into a horse shoe shape. If they spring open, place them in a muffin tin to cool until set.
Pause for a trick
Eat your yummy cookies!!!!
