Sorry, boys. The lovely and talented Karly Jo got married this past weekend.
It was such a fun wedding and I was honored to be a Bride's maid.

I love it when someone from Fargo gets married because it is the only time I ever see the ol' gang I grew up with. It's crazy that most of us are married now. We are all growing up so fast! *tear*

Although, my poor husband has to endure listening to unfamiliar stories and inside jokes all night. Bless his little heart. Thanks for being my hot date, Chris.

And now for a little tribute for Karly and Tina. We made it, girls! Fargo love for life!

I am so happy for my Kjo. We have been through a lot together. From primary to girls camp to Nauvoo to X-files marathons to living together freshman year. I love you.

When in Rome....


So I have been tagged by the wonderful and talented Mr David. I will do this but I don't know how exciting it will be for everyone.

1. I collect garden gnomes. My secret obsession started when I was a wee lass and used to watch David the Gnome on Nick Jr. It continued as a secret until I randomly told someone and they stole one from someone's yard for me. The trend caught on and my friends started frequently stealing them from lawns to give to me. That doesn't happen anymore. But I do buy one when I see one. And I always take gifts...

2. I used to make up dances to the entire soundtrack of Disney movies and then make my parents pay 50 cents to watch me.

3. My mom and I swing dance in public places whenever we hear music.

4. When my husband is not home I blast The Black Eyed Peas and dance around my house.

5. I tried to dress like Punky Brewster and Clarissa from Clarissa explains it all when I was younger. I guess that explains my lack of ability to match.

6. My favorite T.V. show is "The Adventures of Pete and Pete."

7. I openly have a crush on Tina Fey.

There you have it. I am so interesting....

And I tag:
Kelly Greenwood
Mama Turley

Don't feel obligated to do this. It's just for kicks.

And if you care to check it out, I had to make a travel-type blog for my English class. It only has one post right now. Maybe someday it will have more but if you want to check it out it is here.

Back by popular demand!

After a 5 year break, I am finally back into the theater scene. For those of you that knew me back in the day, I used to be quite the thespian. From about 5th grade to 12th grade I was in about 2 shows a year. Coming from two theater major parents, I couldn't get away from it. But the older I got, the more political and weird the theater scene got and by my senior year I was done.

Well, slowly over time, the urge for the stage that runs through my blood has been creeping back into my life. S0, I decided to dip my toes into the Utah State theater program by being in their annual Halloween Show.
They did two one act plays. The suspenseful Monkey's Paw, and the comical murder mystery And Then There Was One. I was Emily Plain in And Then There Was one. Not much to brag about but it was really fun. Thanks to those who came physically and in spirit....or something.

And next on the calender is the annual Pumpkin Blow!! This is an event of a life time. Chris and I started going last year. The Saturday after Halloween, in Weston, Idaho, friends and family gather 'round to see a huge pile of pumpkins blow up. It's wonderful. Please enjoy the video.

God Bless America.
