So I've Got A Question ...

Does anyone else LOVE
Kent as much as I do?

He is my fav!

Thoughts ...

I'm putting together my book stack for my upcoming trip to Catalina,
as well as a great playlist for my ipod.

What are your fav "summer" songs?

Do you have any good book recommendations?

The Way To Have A Happy Day ...

is to wake up to this song playing on your ipod ...

(Have I mentioned before that I really enjoy Jason Mraz?)

and to have Tuesday be your last day of work for the week.

Even the sick nasty rotten seafood smell
at the grocery store tonight that
caused SERIOUS dry heaving
couldn't ruin my happy mood today.

I will now begin the weekend
with a bowl of yummy watermelon
and catching up on the last few weeks of
"So You Think You Can Dance".

Happy Day!

I Survived ...

I am now showered,
drinking a Diet Coke,
doused in "Viva La Juicy" because I can now smell pretty again,
lounging in my pajamas,
eating "Outback" take-out,
and enjoying technology.

It is good to be back.

I'm Going Off The Grid ...

I'm off to frolic in the woods
with my cute young women.

While I love to frolic,
and I love to pretend I am still a young woman ...

I do not enjoy the woods.
I don't like bugs, dirt, or outhouses.

But I know the fun will outweigh
my distaste for the great outdoors.

Pray for me.

Poor Kid ...

he's been born into.

Good thing we LOVE those

I Love Being Patriotic in Provo ...

Call me crazy,
but I LOVE the freedom festival parade
in Provo.

It is my favorite thing about living here.

Here are a few of my favorite things ...

I love feathered hats,
and I love marching bands.
Love them.
Like goosebumps on the arms love them.

Did I say I love feathered hats?

(BTW ... can this be the place where I discuss my serious
dislike for pageantry flags that don't match the
Why would you pick a neon orange and pink flag
while wearing forest green and white uniforms?
It seriously bugs.)

I love being able to thank Orin Hatch for inspiring
Conan O'Brien to write a Christmas song for Mormons.

I love watching tubas.

I get misty eyed watching rows of scouts carrying American flags.
I also cried when the crowds stood and gave a standing ovation
to some troops just home from Afghanistan.

I love when I can sing "Oh, ho the Wells Fargo wagon
is a coming down the street. Oh, please let it be for me."
and it be legit.

I love when people put a couch on top of a jazzy and ride around town.

I love feeling the "Y" pride.

"Go Cougars!"

I love singing "Riding in a Surrey with the Fringe on the Top"
and hanging out with people named Midge.

I love watching the whole Provo mission march in the parade,
and see the crowds go wild!

And I love that the Assistants to the President
got to ride in style in their own car!

But really,
I love llamas,

and flying pigs.

I mean,
if those don't scream
to you ...

Hope you had a happy 4th!

Dear Dan and Lisa,

I snuck a picture of my
neighbors' car window
just for you!

My Birthday Wish Came True ...

I saw Audra McDonald in
"110 in the Shade".

It was AMAZING to watch her up close,
and have her sing while standing 5 feet away from me.

She was beautiful, kind,
and INCREDIBLE live.

I couldn't help but tear up every time she began to sing.

And I loved that I was able to share it with my mom.

It was an unforgettable night!

Tonight ...

I get to sit 5 feet away from her,
and watch her perform.

I couldn't be happier!
