contest!!!

well, the last time we had moisture was when it snowed in.... i think it was february? i don't even remember. but it hasn't rained since then. not one drop. it's always hot so that's normal, but it's so dry here that all the animals are really coming down into town and looking for water and food. i feel so bad for them, but such is nature. usually we've had a big summer thunderstorm with a huge downpour by now. but hopefully it will come soon. however, i guess i should enjoy the sun and warmth and dryness in this beautiful desert as much as possible because aaron got an awesome promotion which means we are moving to............. ?

now i want you all to guess! lets make this fun! and anyone reading this that knows, don't tell!
so, here's what i want you all to do. make a guess with your current address and favorite cookie and the person(s) with the correct or closest answer will get a batch sent priority mail straight to you! and brownies are fine too, but emil, sorry- no cheesecake! the guesses have to be in by thursday, so that's plenty of time. and here's one hint, it's not in california...

UPDATE
ok emil. you only get 1 guess. so figure it out. and your first guess is wrong, so there is another hint for all of you!
and only 1 guess per person!
out of california, and not in colorado......

I don't see why cheesecake isn't an option...but that's okay. I am a HUGE fan of white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, and would love to have you ship them to me when I guess right that you guys are moving to Colorado. Denver perhaps? Even if I'm wrong can you still send me cookies anyway? By the way...CONGRATULATIONS! I am so proud of you Aaron. Really, GREAT JOB! I'm not only responding because there are cookies involved, but because I love you guys and am ho happy for you. But...cookies were a great insentive.

Emily said...

Oh yea...and there were no rules on how many guesses you get...so I'm also going to guess Seattle, Portland, Spokane, Phoenix, Las Vegas, North Carolina (just trying to cover all the bases...I remember you saying something about NC). Oh yea, and in my previous comment I said that I was ho happy for you...what I actually meant was that I am SO happy for you. I need a nap.

Emily said...

Oh yea, and here is my current address:
2805 Comanche
Nampa, ID 83686

Darren said...

Please send your best oatmeal cookies to my house - oh wait, why don't you just drop them by when you move here, because obviously the correct answer is Seattle. At least it should be. Congratulations on wherever you may be moving to, and please send the cookies anyway (please).

Emily said...

Okay my official guess is Seattle then. FINE! You can't just make up rules whenever you want ya know! I'm fine with oatmean cookies too, as long as you don't put raisins in them...so go ahead and send some to Darren and some to me. Oh man this is fun.

Emily said...

oat meaL...seriously, why is there no spell checker on comments?!

Bryce & Brenley said...

OK, so what if more than one person gets the right answer? Do they all get cookies? Because my first guess was Seattle. I would really like it if it was Montana, but I am sure that that is not likely. So if I cant have Seattle then I say Dalles, TX.

When I told Bryce about this he was asking me all sorts of questions about Aaron's job, so he could figure it out. I had to keep telling him I don't know anything about his job. It was kinda funny.

Also, if I win then I will email my address to you, I don't want to post it on the internet.

Congrats on doing such a good job Aaron. And how fun for a new adventure and possibly cooler weather.

Bryce & Brenley said...

Oh, and I want chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. MMmmmmMmMmmm!!

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

so you're giving more hints than you originally meant to right?

My guess, just by emily's reaction to me on the phone today is.... Hawaii? And I WANT BROWNIES! No nuts, please!

Congrats Aaron! So happy for you and to Rose, Aaron's lucky to have your 100% support. You're awesome!

I agree with Brenley about the address. I'll send it if I win.

Emily said...

Oh man, I totally threw Brynne off...I didn't even mean to! Oh well, just trying to better my chances of winning...I have to be competetive!

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

Emily, you jerk! :) But seriously, I was thinking while trying to sleep last night and totally realized I had missed your hints of enjoying the sun, heat, dryness before leaving so the new place is totally different than what you have now right? I want to start over then since Emily tricked me! I'm leaning towards two places. One gets sun and rain and dry and cold all at different times throughout the year (Seattle) and the other would, I think, be totally opposite of where you live now and that's Alaska. So those are my guesses. I hate (j/k :) to be agreeing with Darren on one but smart minds think alike!

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

Dangit, I just reread your "update" cause I obviously forgot about it before that last comment. So to go opposite of total mainstream Seattle right now, I'm deciding on Alaska. I know, I'm crazy but just wanted to have a little fun!

Lizzie said...

I think back east somewhere. Pretty vague, I know, but that's my guess. If you need more specific, let me know. I want brownies.

I can't believe we still haven't gotten together and now your moving. Last time we saw each other we each had one kid, now two each!

Congrats on the job!
