One month to go, baby!!

In one month from today, my little brother, Aaron, will be getting home from his mission!! I'm so excited. I really can't contain myself! He is my best friend and I can't wait to have him back. One of my favorite memories of him is when he did the Napolean Dynamite dance in a school assembly. Obviously he looks a ton like Napoleon, so having him dance on a school stage just like in the movie... CLASSIC! He is such a funny kid. Love you, buddy! See you soon!

Gwyneth: Could you be any more fabulous?!?

For any of you that know me well - you know that I love Gwyneth Paltrow. I think it all started with Emma... but I'm really not sure. I think I'm just naturally inclined to love her! I can't help myself! She and her stylist combined have such classy taste! She's always looking fresh and beautiful and I want to be her!

I know what some of you are thinking: she's a weirdo! She named her kids Apple and Moses... but really, though? I think those names are so great! I am a weirdo when it comes to baby names, too.

And yes, she does dislike our government and the U.S. a bit. She thinks America is prideful and too patriotic...ummm ok. I think that people with such negative opinions on our country should stop whining and they should do something about it themselves or leave! And that's what Gwyneth did. She married a Brit and moved to London. So good on yah, Gwyn!

So when I came across this article on Gwyneth and her Hampton's home... I almost freaked out! She has wonderful design taste! I was very pleased to see that her home style matched her personal style. It's very modern and chic yet classic at the same time. Check out Habitually Chic's coverage on Gwyneth's place. You're great Gwyn!

Bangin' Bangs

I was kind of nervous when I first cut my bangs, but now I love them! They really work better for my face, I think. I love Heidi Klum's bangs, but I don't think I would go that intense with them. The straight across cut is rad, but a little too edgy. I have all the angles I need with my nose! Ha!

Utah Girl Am I!

Sad, I know. My first Utah game of the year was the Oregon State game. I went with my friend Mikey B. and had a great time... What a crazy game!! We were freaking out at the end! It's turning out to be a really good season!

I Heart Halloween!!

Seriously, though!

I think it all started when I was little - my mom would make it a big deal to put out the Halloween decorations and I would look forward to it every year. Love it! And since I'm a big nerd and interior design and decorating thrills me - I love collecting ideas for the future. Not that I'm not allowed to decorate my little house right now, but... as a starving student, resources are limited, you know?
Ok, so I must add that I am very particular on decorations. I really like all the cutesy stuff, but I would prefer a more subdued theme for Halloween. I think maybe when I have little kiddies of my own, I'll like the crafts and such, but for now... no. Here are some really cute ideas for different and/or unusual pumpkin decor:

I love this! Easy, simple and different.

Ok, this one is so cute! You use cookie cutters to make the shapes you want.

This one is really cool. I'm way into all things metallic lately, so this one is a fav. You can either spray paint the pumpkins with gold, silver, bronze, whatever or you can put actual gold leafing on them. I couldn't find a picture of the gold leafing pumpkins, but they are beautiful!

This one is so cute! You paint tin cans whatever color and then punch holes in for the faces. I love that they are a little bit robotic. And you can stack them like in this picture - Love this one!

Have any good ideas? Let me know!
