Warning! LONG POST AHEAD....

You think I'm kidding when I say long post? Well read on..

Life has been pretty busy around the MacDougall home! Work has been pretty intense as Sarah Palin came to Costco for a book signing. I had to be at work at 12am and worked until 8:30am!! What a night... needless to say, by the end of the night I was DONE. Bruce has been busy with school coming to an end and finals, plus working on top of it all. We both still have managed to find time to be with each other.

Bruce and I also had Birthdays. Yup we turned 26 I feel SO old. We weren't going to do anything really because we are trying to save our money, but my wonderful husband went out and found a super good waffle recipe on it was tasty! Seriously you need to look at this recipe and imagine Bruce at the grocery store trying to find some of this stuff! He bought me a waffle maker (which I have been wanting for some time) and got up at 3:00am just to make me breakfast before I went off to work. How sweet is that?! If any of you know my husband, you would know that first of all, he DOES NOT COOK. Second, he DOES NOT GET UP EARLY!! =)
That was possibly the best birthday gift he could have given me. Later he surprised me with a foot spa! AHHHH boy does it feels good after a long day at work to soak my feet. What a wonderful husband I have! On top of that his brother and wife took us out to this yummy pizza place in Salt Lake City to celebrate our birthdays. Holly got me this sweet vintage photo book from my favorite store, emiliejayne! Bless her heart, I don't think she really knows how excited I am to fill this beauty up with pictures! If you've never been to emiliejayne you must go! Better yet call me when you go I love going and looking for hidden treasures!
We also went to Michael McLean's The Forgotten Carols. This has been a kind of tradition for us, we've gone every year since we've been together. This year we went with my sister and her husband again, but we added a home made dinner and had cake since we are all having a birthday in December! It was lot's of fun!

I'll have to take more maternity pictures. I'll try and get some this Sunday with Bruce and I. My tummy is getting SO big! I feel the baby throw me some full on kicks and can actually feel her move around in my tummy. I think she will be a soccer player like her daddy, since she seems to have some pretty strong legs! Everything is still going good, my back is beginning to hurt some, along with becoming tired again. Work is becoming a little harder since bending over is becoming so much more impossible as the days pass. The other morning I asked Bruce to tie my shoes! That's a treat for me people! You wouldn't BELIEVE how uncomfortable this seemingly simple task has become!=) Man, I love my husband! He's such a great sport and does SO much to show me in small ways he loves me! I'm so lucky.

So I'm slowly but surly finishing up posting all my October pictures!
These have to be some of my favorite pictures!! I love being able to take pictures of family.

This is my brother and sister in-law's family. I think they are a super cute and hip family! I loved the colors Laurel choose because it went with all the different textured walls we took pictures next too. PEOPLE can you guess how many different face's I had to crop in to some of these to get a perfect picture??=) Photoshop really is amazing.=) Aren't they just adorable?! LOVE IT!

I stumbled upon your blog and thought your pictures were beautiful. I also wanted to ask which Costco you work at? My husband works for #103 in Clarkston, WA.
