What a bargain!
We want to dress Landon up for Halloween. Well, actually Sam wants to dress him up, but I know it's only so he can take him trick-or-treating and reap the benefits. I feel uneasy about spending $20+ on a costume for someone who will wear it for 3 hours, not to mention have no recollection of the event. We found these cute T-shirts and hats at Target for a buck! There you go, instant Halloween costume! I know Landon looks disappointed, but don't worry its only a matter of time before he is infected with the bargain bug. If my mom has taught me anything, it is the importance of a good bargain! She has instilled in us since childhood that digging through the clearance racks is far more thrilling than spending a little more money to get what you really wanted. So, when I come across a hidden treasure I can't help but snatch it up! Most of the time I really don't need it, but to Sam's dismay I insist. If it's on sale I HAVE to buy it. I just cant resist the urge to save money. I realize that in spending money I am not really saving it. I also acknowledge that this is a sickness. Thank you Mother.
We spoke in church on Sunday so we decided to dress Landon up, that and the fact that this "6 month" outfit is almost too small for our 2 month old. I don't mind speaking in church, if I'm prepared. For some reason I thought I could just wing it... NOT my best idea. Sunday morning before church I gathered some quotes and thought I was ready. Needless to say it didn't go too well. My talk was like 4 minutes and consisted mostly of nervous chatter, which seems to have offended a large portion of the congregation. Sam did great as usual, how do you sound like an adult at the pulpit? I seriously feel like I should be holding up pictures as if I was giving a talk in primary. Oh well, I hope to someday become a real adult. Or at least sound like one. We're lucky to have Monday nights together as a family. Sam gets 2 days off work a week so we take advantage of every minute! Monday we were invited to dinner with some of our friends. It was fun! We ate Mexican food at the Blue Iguana. Now, this place frustrates me. Sam and I keep going there hoping to be impressed. But for some reason their food fails to deliver and they continue to use mayonnaise on their "dinner salads". PLEASE, is it too much to ask for a decent Mexican food restaurant in Utah? Apparently so. Afterwards we got ice cream and played the Newlywed Game. Sam and I won! I think it's because we aren't afraid of offending each other so we tell the truth and get the points!
