Thank you.

Some kind soul or souls left us a box of food on our doorstep. It was full of Ramen, macaroni, chicken noodle soup, Pasta-Roni, and corn. I just wanted to thank whoever it was. I have my suspicions of course, but I thought I should say thanks to everyone, just in case.
You are the best and we appreciate it very much! I guess we will be around for 8 more days ;)

It's raining, not pouring, and this blog is boring

I've been checkin' out my blog lately and realized it has been pretty lame. Our life is interesting, lots going on and all that, but when I sit down to write a post, nothing catchy comes out, so I usually delete it. I might have to do the same with this one. We'll see.
This is what we've been doing since I last wrote.
1. My little sister (Lexcellent) and her hubby (Scottastic) are being sealed together in the St. George Temple on 9.26.09. I am super happy for them! They have made a lot of great progress together and I am excited to see them make this happy step. I have been busy planning a smallish party for her, which has been really fun.
2. We moved. Many of you know this from experience and will know to come up with better excuses for next time. We are loving our new apartment though. There are no neighbors above or below us, there's a garage and a lovely little courtyard to look out on. Most of our stuff is in its place, but the decorating is far from done. Everyone that visits tells me that it "screams Megan & Thomas". We like it muy mucho.
3. I have been busy with {Persimmon Floral}. Tom has been busy with Kingbird Design (new site coming soon). I went to the Avenues Street Fair to advertise. I would have done about a MILLION things differently, but it went pretty well. I also attended a conference for women entrepreneurs, which was so great! Very inspiring. If any of you have considered starting your own business, let me know and I can get you in touch with the people who put it on. Tom just finished up a deck and is working on some other random jobs. We are both looking for other steady jobs so if you hear of any, let me know. We have however, been very blessed with work and talents that let us go out on our own. Even though we are struggling to make ends meet, we know we have been blessed. Thank you to everyone who has supported us.
4. Over Labor Day, we went up to Strawberry Reservoir and stayed at Daniel's Summit Lodge with my Mom and Bill and Scott and Lexy. It was a great trip, although no fish were caught. On Monday, we went up to Tom's family cabin and had a work party. We stayed there most of the day, came home exhausted, and went to bed. There is nothing like a hard day of work. It was very satisfying.
Okay...well I thought I had more than four things to write about, but apparently I don't. I guess it is hard to sum up all your busy days in one post. I will leave you with what Thomas just came into tell me and my new favorite scripture.

Thomas (with the whole block of cheese in his hands): This cheese tastes like fridge. Taste it. (offering me a slice).

It did taste like fridge, but did he really have to share? :)
