The Hanson Fam

Fall is such a fabulous time of year. The air is crisp, pumpkins are carved, candy corn is is in full stock at the grocery store (some I've found are lacking in variety), and all sorts of apples are in season. As you may or may not know, apples are top on my list of favorite foods! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!! At one time in life, I fancied fuji apples. However, on my mission I began to fancy the more tart apples because that's what back east had to offer me. Therefore, my palate currently enjoys jonnagold, rome, jonathan, braeburn (only when crisp), and pink lady apples. Granny Smith are too plain Jane and Red Delicious are not so delicious afterall! Thus, one apple a day is an absolute must for this here cowgirl! Bon Appetite :)

It MUST be in the water....

As of this moment in time, I have 11 baby showers that I am preparing for. SHEESH-apparently I missed the 'get prego now' memo cuz none of these showers are for me. My time will most certainly come, but until then I am busy planning what to give who, writing down who is having what and when. This is quite the process I tell ya. I feel like I've completed all the shopping for the babies on the way totalling 17 outfits and some extra little tid bits. P.S. If you're one of the ladies having a baby get your eyes off the pic above because one of these little outfits will most likely end up on your baby!!!

The irony of a fun filled weekend...

Linds and Corbo

This past weekend one of my good friends from UT came out for a visit. I know what you're thinking, 'who visits Lubbock?!' Yes, I feel deeply LOVED and had a blast too. My friend Linds came out and we spent a couple days scummin' around local stores, painting toenails, eating candy corn, watching movies, chattin' up a storm, etc. All in all we had a BLAST!!!!! Thanks soooooo much for coming out to visit Linds-you are the BEST!!
Here's where the irony comes into play. We also had another friend from UT visit good ol' Lubbock this same weekend. My old bishop and pretty much a second father to me, Jack, came to town. He visited because he officiated the TTU vs. Nebraska game. Pretty important if you ask me. Any how, we spent a fun filled night with him at the local Rosas and caught up on some good times noodle salad!!! Thanks for the din din Jack Attack-sorry we didn't take a pic! Irony of all irony-I'm sure in the 3.5 years we live in Lubbock, we'll only have these two people (other than fam) visit and weird that it all happened on the same weekend!! The more the merrier aye?!?! P.S. Come and visit would ya!!!!
