I am so proud of my coworkers, not only did we kick butt with our amazing Thriller routine but we also won the competition out of the whole company.

The entire sales & marketing department (30+ people) dressed up like Zombies and we did the dance to Thriller. We even decorated our area incorporating the movie theatre, abandoned ally and of course the haunted graveyard which the zombies awoke from. I am in the front row in the multicolored green and blue dress.

We even had a professional make-up artist come and do our faces. They put latex makeup on our faces and peeled it back to make it look like we had crazy wrinkles. Can you tell that I work with competitive people if we had someone come in to do our makeup?

Happy Halloween!

P.S. I will post pics of Remy in his monkey outfit tomorrow.

No More Mini Vans!

I admit it--I do not want a minivan. And last night confirmed this for me, although this experience could occur regardless of the vehicle you drive, but today I am blaming it on the minivan. Michael, Remy and I were out for a nightly walk through the Sandy neighborhood that we can't wait to move out of when we approached a group of teenagers hanging out on the street. I guess it is the local hangout for teenagers that live between 114000 south and 106000 south--lucky us! So as we were walking past this group of teenagers a car approached and parked in a driveway about 5 steps in front of us without even paying attention to the fact that there were pedestrians on the sidewalk (thinking the car belong to the driveway) we proceeded to walk down the sidewalk when the next thing we know the crazy person driving the minivan proceeded to back out of the driveway without looking behind them. I was walking a little bit ahead of Michael with Remy in the shoulder carrier when the lady literally backed her minivan into my right side. It happen oh so quickly and as soon as we realized what was happening Michael banged on the back of the van and some type of sensor went off alerting the lady to stop. Do not worry--we are all perfectly fine. No bruises or scratches and Remy had no clue what was going on. As you can assume I was pretty shook up and a little angry (Remember: Never upset a Southern woman, disagree with her, stick your nose in her business and absolutely never try to run her and her 7 month over with your mini van whether deliberately or on accident). And to top it all off the lady in the minivan wouldn't even roll down her window to apologize after nearly making a Lizzie & Remy sandwich on the asphalt.

So remember...
1. Look both ways and behind you before backing up a motor vehicle.
2. If you do happen to accidentally hit someone with your motor vehicle, at least roll down your window to make sure the scared out of their pants victims are okay.
3. Ban all minivans from women in Utah who have driver's license.
