but its the only we've taken this month

Hey you work with what you've got.

Hope everyone has a wonderful 

Dear Santa,
This year I'm asking for 
In 'n Out gift cards
and elastic pants.
See what you can do.

You know you're pregnant when.....

You wake your husband up to remind him about that delicious burger you had 4 months ago!
You know you're married to Brandon when he just stares at you with a blank look on his face
because he's still half asleep and is not sure who you are! 

Dear Baby,
I love you a lot and i'm excited to see your cute face,
but anytime you want to stop craving fries, bread, and potatoes
I would really appreciate it.

Your mom

This year we spent Thanksgiving with my family in 
 (aka: pure joy)

We spent the entire weekend playing wii bowling,
eating lots and lots of food,
and visiting all the amazing sites Spokane has to offer.

 Our first stop was by my grandma and grandpa Mccain's home.
A place where my family spent many Thanksgivings.
Oh the memories!

Next a slide down the infamous
 Radio Flyer

visited the Clock Tower in River Front Park

 Took a few rides on the carousel.
We even got Gege up on a horse!
(Yay for her new knee!!)

Fed the Garbage Eating Goat all our leftovers 
from our delicious lunch at Dicks!

and last but not least...
fulfilled the long standing 
Family go see a movie on Thanksgiving tradition!

This year we saw
We Bought a Zoo
We loved it!!

(I now give Brandon permission to buy a zoo if I die.
However Scarlett Johansen can not be the zoo keeper.)

 I have so much to be grateful for,
my wonderful husband,
our loving families,
and most importantly...
that soon I'll be allowed to wear elastic pants and not even feel bad about it!!

Life is good!

Hunger Games

Yet another one of my favorite books is being made into a movie.
Even Brandon loved it.
We both read it in about 3 days!
(record for me...and probably him)
It will be out in March and we can't wait!

We watched the trailer last night and these were some of our thoughts...
It looks awesome!
Not sure about Lenny Kravits??
Brandon loves Woody Harrelson!
(news to me)
I'm a little (a lot) worried about the violence. 
I am still team Peeta!

I am a lover of 
Some people just skip it and move right onto Christmas.
But not me,
I love everything about it!
eating, shopping, eating some more....what's not to love?

This year I am especially excited!
I'm excited to see my in-laws and then head up north
to good old Spokane.
I'm excited to see my parents and some of my best friends.
I'm especially excited to share all of this with Brandon!

 I am very grateful for my hardworking husband.
He works so hard each and every day
and then takes care of me when i'm tired or not feeling well.
He deserves an extra piece of Pecan Pie!
(hint hint mom)

Well our Halloween was incredibly lame.
I had to work
and Brandon had to write a paper.
But don't worry,
 that didn't stop us from attempting to 
consume all the candy leftover from the trick or treaters.

I sure do love Halloween!

Here's me kissing the jack-o-lantern version of
 Donny Osmond, I mean my husband!!

Jane Austen

My mom loves Jane Austen.
Oh and by loves, I mean she's a little obsessed.
I bet you didn't know they made a Jane Austen action figure.
Well they do...
and she's got it.

In my younger years I thought Jane was a little boring,
but as I grew up I too fell in love.

This is one of my mom's favorite Jane Austen quotes,
and now, its one of mine.

Ps: Sorry if that was a little cheeseball for ya,
 but hey we're newlyweds, we're allowed to be cheesy for a while!

 Its beginning to look a lot like fall around here,
and I couldn't be more thrilled!

This week I finally got to break out my sweaters, scarves and UGGS!
So to welcome my favorite season back into our lives
we had a fall themed dinner.

Broccoli and Cheddar Soup
in a 
Pumpkin Bread Bowl.

If I had to choose a meal to might be this one.
(sorry Brandon)

Top 3 things I love about fall:
Its ok to be pale 
constant candy eating is acceptable
sweaters hide my fat!

Happy Fall!

Well the first official Moore Family Conference Weekend was a success!!

Now that we have our own little family,
its fun to start making our own traditions.

Growing up we always ate cinnamon rolls while watching conference,
but since I don't know how to make those I decided to try something new.
Something that would be "our" thing....
Biscuits and Gravy.
I'm very happy to say that my southern boy was happy, 
and so was I.

Moore Family Tradition #1

Between conference sessions I somehow convinced Brandon that it would be a good idea to hike the 
It seemed like a good idea at the time...

 This picture was taken half-way up the mountain.
I wish I could say that we had planned on it being the most unattractive picture ever,
however we were tired, the sun was in our eyes, and it was 150 degrees!
(darn altitude)

Well we finally made it, hence the smiles on our faces!!
I actually heard Brandon say that he was glad we did that!
(say what??)

Moore Family Tradition #2...well maybe?

PS: Conference was amazing!! Loved the talks. Love the Prophet. Loved it all.

little bit of this and that

We went to the Jimmer Show the other night.
Brandon was in heaven
and since basketball is one of the only sports I actually understand,
I enjoyed myself as well!

I made a new Halloween wreath this year.
I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out,
and I'm especially happy that it only cost about $8 to make!

Now that's my kind of craft!!

I am currently obsessed with artichoke hearts.
(is that weird?)
I make recipes based upon whether they call for artichoke hearts or not.
Very few do.
So we've been eating a lot of salads lately.

Brandon is thrilled.

Dear Mom, 
I know I used to hate AH's growing up 
and would get mad at you when you'd cook with them. 
You were right and I was wrong. 
Forgive me.

And last but certainly not least.
According to the US Government,
the State of Utah,
Chase Bank...
I am now officially Sarah Moore!
It only took 3 months to get here,
but it sure feels good!

Most people haven't had the same best friend since they were 2 years old.
I'm one of the lucky ones!

Happy Birthday 
to one of the greatest gals I know!

Thanks for choreographing 157 dances to Paula Abdul with me.
Thanks for teaching me how to flat iron my hair.
Thanks for being friend...even when I was fat!
(and not cute)

I hope we look like this when we're older!

But we're in....

I'm excited to get unpacked,
and turn our little apartment into our

texas, texas, and more texas!

My trip to Texas was amazing!
Playing with Ella and Piper was pure joy.
Doing P90X with Becca was pure torture.
Not doing my hair all week was heavenly.
Lots of shopping and eating was good for my soul, 
yet bad for my wallet and thighs.
Getting splashed by Shamu at Seaworld was memorable.
Leaving the Rodgers family was sad.

 coming home to my cute husband
was happiness.

 Here are some pics from the Lone Star state.

(This could quite possibly be one of my favorite pictures of all time)

Hey, life's hard when you're a princess and a super hero!

Next week i'm headed to my husband's favorite place on earth...
(he's never been to spokane)

I'm excited to head down south where 
 everything's bigger,
the BBQ is to die for
the humidity makes my bangs curl up like its 1987.

Although I will miss Brandon dearly,
I look forward to some much needed time with my nieces, sister and Blue Bell Ice Cream.

Clear eyes, full hearts.....

Tomorrow is our last day in California
and my heart is breaking.

I sure am going to miss our little apartment,
driving Brandon to and from work everyday,
sleeping on an air mattress,
eating on a card table,
and who could forget
 our beautiful hand-me-down couches from the 90's!

I honestly didn't think I would be this sad to leave our little temporary home.
But it was a our first apartment,
our first bed,our first couch
and most importantly,
where I first learned how to be a wife,
and that's why I love it.

I guess you could say
"I left my heart in San Francisco"
(get it, the song)

Goodbye sunny beautiful California, Hello snowy scary driving Utah!

I just couldn't resist.

Brandon's face in each and every one of these pictures is 

Tears were streaming down my face from laughter.

Life is not boring.

A Very Lucky Man

Let me tell you why I am a very lucky man...

Every single morning, 
I get to wake up next to 
the girl of my dreams

She tells me that she loves me
and then asks me what I want for breakfast
(even if we're running late)

After that, we jump in the car 
and I get go on a 15 minute road trip
with my best friend
(20 minutes if there is traffic)

At 6:30pm, I leave work and 
walk out to the parking lot
Even after 2 months 
(73 days to be exact)
I still can't believe that the
 beautiful girl waiting next to the blue Honda 
is waiting for me

I then get my daily dose of laughter
as Sarah tells me about 
all the crazy customers 
that come in to her work

We get home and then she fixes 
me whatever dinner I want
(the pulled pork sandwiches are my favorite)

We then watch episodes of 
of my favorite TV show (The Office)
 even though we have seen
 them hundreds of times already

We get ready for bed 
and she again tells me 
that she loves me

Right before I fall asleep
I always think the same thing...
I am a very lucky man

I scream!

I have a new obsession called...
 make homemade lemon ice cream and then eat it.
Its my sister-in-law Janie's recipe,
and its ah-mazing!

If you add fruit to ice cream that means its healthy right?
knew it
