I have NO idea why...

One day, as Angela sat at home in her parent's castle, a fairy whispered in her ear to take a journey to a land far, far away. So, our Princess packed up her little bag, climbed on her flying chariot and rode all the way to the land far, far away.
After Angela set up her house in a large hollow tree, she went to a church to find some friends. As she sat singing with the other Princesses, the most handsome Prince she had ever seen walked into the room. Angela instantly fell in love with Prince Steve.
So our Prince took Princess Angela home to the most beautiful house of all.
And they lived Happily Ever After...
Congratulations Steve and Angel! It was a beautiful day.

First, the most amazing cupcakes I think I've ever made. I'm not really a fan of fruit with chocolate, but when I saw a recipe for these chocolate cupcakes with raspberry white chocolate frosting, I just couldn't resist! They turned out pretty well, don't you think?
Most of you have probably seen those fruit boquettes. They are so beautiful and delicious to eat. Everytime I see one I think, "I could make that." So I attempted it for my dear friend Mary's birthday. I think it was a success!

Until recently, I did not know that I can be quite sassy in my sleep. James says he adores this little tendency, but I don't know how long that will last.
The latest episode happened a couple of nights ago when James came to bed after I was already asleep. I was mumbling about something or other. He wasn't sure if I was sleep talking or not, so he said, "Honey, you aren't making any sense," to which I responded, "YOU'RE not making any sense!"
This is not a one-time thing. A few months ago when James asked me if I was sleep talking I got a little testy and said, "Are YOU sleep talking?!" Wow, I guess I'm not brilliant in my sleep.
I just hope I don't start breaking out the profanities!

On the first full moon of fall, my sweetheart decided to take me on a hot (well actually it was freezing) date. We went up to Sundance Ski Resort with a few other couples and rode the ski lift over the stunning mountains. We brought a blanket and some delicious hot cocoa, which turned out to be our saving grace I might add, and spent some alone time on the lift.
I just can't get enough of my James. It doesn't matter how long we are around each other or what we are doing, but I will never have enough time with him. I'll never be able to hold him close enough or decide I've kissed him enough for now. My family can attest to this. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Thanks honey for the great date!
So, as the first official "Purinton Family Halloween" we decided to go out and get a couple of pumpkins to carve with our friends Kevin and Rachel. Here are the results...
James and I with our ghost in a haunted house pumpkin...
This is what it looked like lit up.
Crazy how the smell of pumpkins can bring back so many memories. Today James asked if we could carve another one because it was so relaxing! I think this will be a Purinton family tradition too.

Today I just want to show my man how much he means to me. Sadly, it hasn't gone as planned. I wanted to wake up early and make him a delectable breakfast in bed (like he did for me yesterday). I slept through my alarm. I wanted to take him for his favorite ice cream at Coldstone. I swear the lunch hour shrunk. I wanted to treat him to a fancy dinner (in or out, I'm not picky)! He has a meeting at school tonight that he just can't miss.
So, tonight we will curl up on the couch together with some hot chocolate and our book and celebrate his Birthday the way we spend most of our evenings together these days. Not such a bad birthday afterall...
Happy Birthday James! I love you sweetheart. Maybe I'll get it right next year.
