Still #1/Broken Record

I still want a garage for Christmas. Just like I did in 2008 and 2007. Apparently I never get sick of complaining about the same things!

I don't wanna get over you

If I never take the streamers down then my birthday never ends, right?

Don't tell Matt/all my friends/my own self

I saw Brandon Flowers last week and enjoyed it more than when I saw Sufjan Stevens 2 weeks prior. Some factors for such a statement:
I didn't have a headcold
I didn't know everyone in the audience
We were closer to the stage
No auto-tune
Stomach full of Sawadee
Sister Sarah as my very excited concert partner
He's from Henderson so we felt cool knowing about things he talked about
I didn't have to miss the World Series to see it
Fran Healy opened for him
He wore suspenders
Free ticket
No expectations

Sorry, Suf, never thought I'd say it either. But it's just how I feel. I mean look at this guy. And he's got a pregnant wife. That's just hard to compete with.

Today I'm Thankful For

This guy. Far away in Brazil where it's really really hot living a life way harder than mine because he wants to and he knows it's the right thing to do. Happy Birthday, little brother! See you in a couple months!

Today I'm Thankful For

- Non-smoking bowling alleys
- A working furnace
- Rice cookers
- Sisters who assure me that eating potato chips while my vegetables steam is not as despicable as wearing uggs on an elliptical (real conversation)
- Photographs

My kind of weekend

- House cleaning blitz
- Pumpkin Coconut soup- kinda like this but I added tomatoes, carrots, celery, pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts. Trust me on this one.
- Wait Until Dark- so much scarier/better than I remembered even!
- Park City-ideal dark jeans for him, ideal fur-trimmed coat for me
- Most glorious fall weather/leaves blowing everywhere
- RSL game
- An extra hour of life
- Lots of sewing
- While listening to lots of this
- All topped off with some Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
- (And a round of Sorry!, obviously)

(they did it!)

Andersons have been Giants fans for a very long time. As a person without a lot of concrete favorites, it's always been comforting that 'my team' was set out for me long before my birth. Relieves pressure, ya know? And really it only matters when they're in the playoffs or I need to look cool in front of a bunch of guys. Anyway, it's been fun to care about this postseason and have a reason to yell at the TV. My favorite part of everything was that Grandpa Robert (and some uncles) were in attendance at game 5. New life goal-go to a world series game. Even if I'm 80 by the time I make it.

no offense, nellie

We went to Wyoming last weekend. Cuz why not? Plus we needed to see these mini horses and check up on the pygmy goats. In the end though, we spent most of our time with the mini people. That's how awesome they are. (You should have seen the lego treehouse Jake and Regan built. "Best quiet time" of Jake's life.)
