Another Good Burger

Some of you may have heard about an American Fork company that was sued by Inn N Out a while back. I don't know the results of the case, but that is not why I'm writing about them. A Chadder's opened up near our house and Missy and I decided to give them a try. Chadder's has a small menu hamburgers, fries, and shakes. I have their double cheeseburger and Missy had the single. Their french fries are fresh and their hamburger are also. I can see why Inn N Out was so mad when they found out about them. They even served their burgers in one side of a brown cardboard box. But there is one improvement on the Inn N Out experience. Fry Sauce! The new burger joint has not swayed me from the best burger in town but I thought that they we still good.

Lisel tagged me a long time ago. Sorry it's late, but I did do it.

EIGHT THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL GOOD: listening to Ellie laugh, watching the little light bulb turn on when I teach something, receiving compliments, finishing my "projects", spending time with Weston, when the house is clean- it's rare, when I have a good idea, spending time with my family.

EIGHT THINGS I DID YESTERDAY: woke up at 1:30 a.m. to comfort my gassy baby for an hour until she fell asleep again, took a shower, fed Ellie applesauce for the first time, taught school, made baked potatoes, soaked Ellie's clothes in OxyClean, had rootbeer floats with Weston, cleaned up the kitchen.

EIGHT FAVORITE EATS/DRINKS: chicken parmesan, orange chicken, homemade macaroni and cheese, Dr. Pepper, chicken salad sandwiches, cheesecake, spaghetti, Cafe Rio chicken salad.

EIGHT THINGS ON MY WISH LIST: time to scrapbook and make cards, I would also like a finished basement, new clothes and shoes, Ellie to sleep through the night every night, being able to travel more to places like Hawaii or go on a cruise, a Six Flags in Utah, students were more serious about learning and were more respectful, a maid that would come clean once a week.

EIGHT THINGS I LOVE ABOUT FALL: cooler temperatures, Halloween, bright colored leaves, decorating for holidays, wearing warm pajamas, things sort of slow down from the summer bustle- at least for a little while, eating cold weather comfort foods, new episodes of my favorite TV shows.

EIGHT FAVORITE TV SHOWS: Chuck, Gilmore Girls, Cyberchase, Word World, House, So You Think You Can Dance, CSI, and Law & Order.

EIGHT THINGS I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO: Thanksgiving, Christmas Break, Weston done with school, Ellie crawling, pedicure party on Friday, gas prices going down even more, seeing my sister, making cards with Mom on Friday.

EIGHT FRIENDS TO TAG: Kristan, Shelly, Melanie, Andrea, Carrie, Kathie, Melissa, Hayley (so I had to put 8, but I won't feel bad if you don't do it)
