Halloween at the Johnson home...too fun.

After a spooky day Me and Mike spent the day doing what we do best.  We went and got Chinese food, did the crossword, ate sugar cookies shaped like candycorn (complements of Katie and Joel), and then flipped between Pawn Stars, Cake Boss, and the Chargers/Chiefs game.

(Yes, that is my pumpkin from last year, but I like it better than our 2-face jack-o-lantern this year.)

Best part of all was the political conversation sparked from my book on educational reform in the US.

Mike: "I mean it's pretty impressive, two people from the movie predator became governors.  Who knows, maybe the predator himself will become a governor."  (proceeds to make predator noises and shake his hands)

Yep, married life is pretty glamorous.  Just for fun I'll flash back to one of my favorite Mike quotes:

Preface...Just saw a preview to the Twilight movie that featured Dakota Fanning.
Brittany: "That would be so awkward to be in a movie with Kristen Stewart after making out with her in your last movie".
Mike: "That would be so awkward being in a movie with Kristen Stewart."

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Why I love Mike...

I just told him to stop talking to me until I finish my homework.

Was he annoyed? No.
Did he object? No.
Did he silently motion that he locked his lips up and swallowed the key? Yes.

To that I responded: "You can't swallow the key if you already locked your mouth."

He "responded" to that by re-acting out the locking motion, and then snorting the key up his nose.

Wow I love that guy!

Cougar Attack

It's true, I was attacked by a cougar this weekend.

I'm sure you have plenty of questions for me...
Am I ok? I think so.
Was it sad? Not really.
Did my friends try to help me?  Heck no.
Did I almost wet my pants in fear and laughter?  Maybe.

I'm sure you know the name...

Yes, Cosmo invaded my personal space at the football game.  All I did was reach out to touch his arm...I wanted to touch a cougar.  Then he turned and pounced.  He put his paws on my head and shook me all around.  Mike was laughing too hard to offer help.  Then thank goodness the animal lost interest and crawled down the bleachers to another victim.

So there you have it.  Moral of the story?  Never trust a cougar with a football jersey on.
B-T-dubs, erin wore a killer babouschka.

What a wonderful couple of days

Aside from the many things I have to do, there have been some good things these past few days.  Let me start with:

1. It was rainy so I got to try out my new coat that it's been too hot to wear!
2. Because it was so rainy, we went to get chinese food.  Ok that's a terrible reason, let's be honest, we were too lazy to cook and my feet were wet.  HENCE we got chinese food. (ps this is a picture of a raindrop cowboy riding an H2O molecule...enjoy!)
3. The owners of our favorite chinese place just had a baby boy that morning!  And the pictures were adorable, and the dad was in a great mood and he gave me extra steamed rice when I took my leftovers.  What a man!
4. I woke up and I was FREEZING this morning!  How wonderful!!! I missed that feeling of death freezing like I miss a lot of stuff.
5. Me and Mike went to Target, one of my favorite stores alive!
5.2 We bought Stephen's hot chocolate, one of my favorite hot drinks.
5.3 We drank hot chocolate!!!  (for night and morning)
6. I ate leftover chinese food for breakfast this morning!
7. I wore boots to school and I loved it!!! I felt like my feet were sleeping in bed all day!
8. I heard a little bird in the math hallway declare it was snowing.  I promptly ran out of the computer lab and straight to a door in the hall.  True enough, it was snowing and I almost wet my pants I was so happy! (I love the first few snows!)  In true memory of my mom, I am listening to Christmas music now.
9. Snow is not on the ground, BUT it is stuck on the beautiful!
10. Provo tabernacle is turning into a temple and every time I drive by those burned-up ruins I want to sing the Hallelujah chorus!!  That will be my favorite temple alive!

few downsides: One of the coat buttons is not attached correctly, so it's about to fall off.  I didn't work half as much as I wanted to this week.  My fortune cookie basically called me a prostitute (you will be rewarded for the special gifts you give to others...clearly prostitution).  I almost slipped in the rain like 6 times.  My phone went off in class........I'll stop there.
