Now that school is finally coming to an end we have a second that we should probably spend studying for finals but....won't. A lot has happened since our last blog. On Halloween night Josh and I went with friends up to the Off Broadway Theater in Salt Lake to see one of their spoof plays called Dracula vs. The Hunchback. And of course, as it was Halloween, I wanted to dress up and through my amazing persuasion powers convinced Josh to dress up with me. It seemed my convincing paid off because when we went dressed as zombies in full make up we ended up winning season tickets to the 2009 Off Broadway Theater season. We can't wait to go.
Thanksgiving was fun, we had two dinners which Josh compared to being on a mission (lots of food, very little time). It was a blast being with family and taking time off school. It really gave us a taste of what we have coming for Christmas break.
The weekend of Thanksgiving we had a chance to go see Coldplay live at the Energy Solutions Arena with my family. Coldplay has been one of Josh's favorite bands for quite a while now and after spending days calling in to radio stations to win tickets we'd found out my mom had already gotten tickets for everbody. Here's some pictures from the concert:

We're so cute while we wait for music
In the beginning of December, we celebrated Josh's birthday by going up to the Clark planetarium to feed Josh's space geekiness by watching a show in the dome theater called Black Holes. I also got him a model rocket, which he thought was just the coolest thing ever (besides getting married). He told me that, I'm not just assuming.
Christmas is coming now and we're real excited to end the semester and start relaxing. Last year at this time we were just moving into our townhome and didn't have time to decorate or get ready for christmas, so this year we started early. The day after Thanksgiving we set up our tree and we've been listening to Christmas music since.
As for right now, I have my last two finals on Monday and Josh will be done by Friday with his four. He's so smart, he'll do great!
Merry Early Christmas and good luck to everyone else with finals!
