Don't even worry, I posted twice today....

So I am obviously quite behind on posting. Two months behind actually. I have yet to post about the So You Think You Can Dance tour, our last get together at Dell's house (which is the post below this, so please scroll on down to see that), New York, my nephew's birthday party, my little brother and sister's birthday party, etc. Yeah. But at least I killed 2 birds with one stone by posting twice today! Woot! Anyways, this is us at Katie's house for our October party. All but 2 were able to make it!! We had so much fun, her theme was "Favorite Things" like Oprah does on her show. So we all had to bring a favorite thing and then got to go home with someone else's. SUCH a fun idea. She also made taco soup in "pumpkin" bread bowls, hot chocolate, cookies, candy, the works. We ate, swapped favorite things, and then because there are so many of us (and we all talk over each other and have side conversations) we never get to hear all about everyone's lives. So she had these questions in a bowl and each of us picked out 2 questions and then thats how we talked all night. It was SO fun. the questions were like "Whats the most in love you've ever been?", or "what was the most courageous thing you've ever done?", or "What is the best thing you've ever spent money on?". So we went around the circle and listened to everyone and talked specifically with them about their question. I LOVED IT.

This is Katie giving away her favorite thing, which happen to be wearing hoodies. So she gave the cutest hoodie (hello $$$ Katie, we were not suppoed to spend that much, you punk) to Brooke who drew her name.
Sheena and Hadlee Jo. She was wearing the cutest little outfit! Sheena said she was excited cuz she is now just starting to fit into actual baby clothes. I need to eat her one of these days.


This is Tori giving her favorite candle and sent. I think it was citrus flavored. What, you guys don't eat your candles?



The yummy pumpkin bowl taco soup number. Seriously tasty. Kira made mine for me cuz I couldn't cut make my bowl without mauling it. Thanks Kir.

Hi Weight Watchers cookies that tasted like heaven. Thanks for being so delicious to my tummy, AND being low cal. Super nice of you.


Haley being inventive with bread. Always a plus when you can double your hat as a snack.

Miss Meg. I'm not sure what happened but at some point in the night she got crap all over her shirt. Oops. I'm not sure how she's gonna get that out, I hear it stains.... Hehehehehe (I tease, I tease)

Dell showcasing Katie's awesome Halloween cups. Seriously, every detail was thought of. Katie went all out ya'll.

Sheena, Tori, and Dell. Hot sexy mamma's.



So, a tid bit about Katie. Where do you start with this girl? Honestly, she is one of the most fun people I know. She is crazy and daring, silly and sweet, hardworking and dedicated. I have never met anyone as determined as her to meet a goal she sets for herself. She is also one of the most thoughtful people I know. Katie is always doing nice things for people and in any gift she gives, or party she throws, or card she writes, her whole heart goes into it. You can always spot the gift Katie brought because it is always so put together and elaborate. She is an incredibly creative person, and is always putting that to use. This girls got guts and she's not afraid to get up infront of a crowd of people. She is able to laugh at herself, and not take life too seriously. I have so many memories with Katie, it's hard to know where to begin. Tube socks, highschool cheerleading, camps, going on "crime runs", the beetlejuice mask, spying(hehe), the leprechaun, her rap music always blaring in her car (juan was it?), her talking herself out of 8 speeding tickets in about one year (even going as far as getting out of the car to "throw up"), boys, dancing, her being mine and my highschool boyfriend's therapist, Lake Powell, senior trip, Mesquite, her to-die-for 6 pack, her getting in trouble with our guys friends in Vegas cuz they were worried she looked too sexy (she was wearing shorts, she just has THAT bangin of a body), her witch performance in the 9th grade play, her eating cereal 2 inches from her face, her albums and albums of pictures, going to spend a weekend with her at her sisters in Cali with Brooke, the pinky toe, silver toe nail polish, silver jewelry, laying out and her getting tan and me getting burned, living a summer in Hawaii with her and Brooke, skydiving, running for 3 hours in the rain (ok that was just you, we all stopped at like 45 minutes), eating plate fulls of $.25 pineapple and making our mouths raw, doing her hair for her wedding, and watching her be the cutest dang pregnant chick out there. Needless to say, I love this girl. Thanks for your friendship Katie, for being such an example to me, and for all the fun memories we've had and the next to come. Love you!!!

And again such a cute idea. What did you end up with???

And the pumpkin bread bowls are genius. I love anything pumpkin and those bowls look delish!!

Now keep up the posting. Since I don't see you to often it is the only way to see what you have been up to.

Oh and I will pass the memo on to Jessie to add you to her blog. She is actually on an airplane right this second flying to Utah to visit for 3 weeks. YAHOO!!

Tremayne and Dellany Higby said...

Yay! That really was such a cute get together, and Katie! What a hoot, I love her so much, sometimes when she starts laughing, even if I have know clue what for, I start laughing. We continue to laugh our faces off if only for the fact that the other person is laughing. It is great! She is so much fun and such an awesome girl. Much love for her!!!!!

Joleen said...

What a fun party. Don't you just love those weight watchers pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They are so tasty and don't add a lot of calories!

Heather said...

Hooray! Finally some posting!! Looks like you guys had such a great time. LOVE the pumpkin bread bowls, and I am so stealing that favorite things idea. What did you get? Did you give that shaving stuff?

Okay! You need to not be talented at something, Annie! I knew you could write, but who knew you could make a girl feel like a Super Woman with the niceties you wrote! Then you post the best photography (another new talent I didn’t know you were holding back)! Such good photography that truly captures the essences of our cute friends and the night! Thank you so much for saying what you did about me! I made sure my husband, Mom and sister read it! Didn’t want to be self promoting, but it was so clever! They all were amazed with your gift of words and sweetness! My Mom wants to print it off and scrapbook it in a plastic page, that's how much she loved it (you know my Mom).

You're so genuine and talented! Good memories Annie and me have had and looking forward to much more to come:)! Thank you!

PS. Love the funniness of Meg's Obama shirt and the stains... "I tease, I tease" comment! Gotta love our friends and all of our unique and cute personalities!

Of coarse I remember you, I actually was talking to Heather about you, I need a hairdresser and she said you do hair so maybe one of these times I will have to come and have you do my hair it needs alot of help. It looks like you still keep in touch with alot of the girls you cheered with. Isn't it cool how those friendships last forever, the pictures you have posted of your parties are awesome, having theme parties is such a good idea. I might have to steal that from you. You should come hang out with us sometime

Jeff and Emily said...

Hi! I am so excited you left me a comment. It has been much too long. Things are going great! Jeff and I are just livin the life of an old married couple. We pretty much just chill with Calli and Mike which is great. How's life treating you? Anything new and exciting?

Natalie & Luke said...

I am so excited! I literally just peed my pants! We will have to talk Friday morning... I have no doubts about this movie. ;)

Stephanie and Levi (and Claire) said...

Hey. You know Emily, she's my sister-in-law! Small world. I guess not, though, since you all went to Jordan. Still, that is neat.

Tiffany and Bill said...

You girls always look like you are having the time of your lives, I love it! By the way, I have a invite for you to a baby shower. But I need to get your address.

Natalie & Luke said...

I LOVED IT! Yes, I was dissappointed with a few things. But, overall I loved it. LOVED Rob Pattinson... More than I even thought I would. We will have to talk more tomorrow at Meg's. I don't want to ruin anything for anyone.... You are going to Meg's tomorrow right? Oh and I am seeing it again tomorrow, I think. No long story, I just want to. It will be nice without the annoying crowd and to actually be able to enjoy it more without being so tired.

Tiffany and Bill said...

Yeah its probablly not a good idea to put your address out there.. scary... I will ask Dell for it today.
