Playing Pool...

So as it turns out...I am REALLY bad at playing pool! I love it and have a really good time playing it but I am not very good! Tonight we played for about an hour and a half...which was easily 10+ games...I won 3. That's it...3! Which actually when I say it doesn't sound so bad until I mention that the only reason I won those 3 is because he hit the black ball in! But I'll take what I can get! Very fun night...not good at pool!

Crystal Gayle

Tonight me and my mom went to the Layton Amphitheatre to see Crystal Gayle! Crystal Gayle!! It was a great great concert!! For those of you under the age of 50 who don't know who she is...she is a very famous country singer from the 70's! She has some awesome songs like "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" and "Talking In Your Sleep" and "Why Have You Left The One You Left Me For" and many more!!

Before the concert I asked my mom "What do you think the average age of people at this concert is going to be?" to which she replied "My age" and I said "Aren't you guessing a little young?" and I was right...the average age was probably about 60! It is very possible that I was the youngest person there! It was awesome!

Also for those of you who don't know...she has really really really really really long hair! She keeps it about 3 inches above the floor! I kinda have an odd obsession with long hair and I could not stop watching it all night! I took about a ga-zillion pictures of it but for your sake...I am only posting a couple! But make sure you check out how LONG it is!!!

Her sister Peggy Sue was there as a back-up singer. Also for those of you who don't know...Crystal Gayle is Loretta Lynn's baby sister. And for those of you wondering who Loretta Lynn is all I will say is "The Coal Miner's Daughter" and if you don't know what that it!

So between the fact that it was a FANTASTIC concert...I also saw some of my favorite people and my good friend Ashley sang the National Anthem and sounded freakin fabulous!!! It was an excellent excellent night!

Catch Up Blog!

Hello Everyone!! has been quite a while since I it is completely obvious from looking at the date of my last entry and also from all the wonderful comments I have received along the lines of "you really should update your blog" or "I'm really sick of looking at that Wicked picture everytime I check your blog" etc. So here I am! I'm back!!! And I have been very busy the last little while so although this is going to be a long is going to be a very condensed version of what I have been up to!!! I will hopefully be able to go into more detail on most of these things...but just in is a little of what I have been doing lately...

7. Our good friend Casey Myers got married! (No he is not in the picture but this was just a fun picture we took while there!)

8. Brandon & I got engaged! (Okay not really! Here is the story...I looked good since I just came from a wedding and Brandon looks FABULOUSLY SKINNY so we wanted to take skinny pictures...and what better place to do that then at the set of Whoopee!? So after the we were taking pictures...everyone kept saying they looked like engagement pictures...and so that is what they became!)

(We make a pretty cute couple, don't we!)

9. Leslie wanted to go see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and none of her family wanted to join her so of course when she asked me I said YES!

(This was painted on the wall by the dressing rooms at the Capitol Theatre)

10. Emily & I were the stage hands for The Miss Utah Pageant at the Capitol Theatre!! Thanks Brandon for a wonderful and scary new experience!

(My very favorite part was that I got to shoot off the confetti cannon every night! - also notice my awesome headset and that awesome clam in the background)

(Me & Emily standing outside our dressing room! Yup, we got a dressing room at the Capitol Theatre!!)

(Emily & I spent the majority of our time in this little nook! We kinda had our own little world stored here - treats, drinks, blankets, pillows, etc! Brandon took this picture during one of our 'breaks'! So so so much fun!)

11. Michael Jackson passed away :( Now I know that any of you who know anything about pop culture already know that...but I am kinda a HUGE MJ fan and so it was definitely a big part of my life.

12. It may have been 2 1/2 years late but I finally made Amy's quilt! And didn't it turn out fantastically?!?!

19. On my way to the Stott's cabin in Island Park I took a little detour to Jackson Hole to see 'Jackson Hole To The Max' aka 'The Reba Movie'!!! It's kinda a documentary on Jackson Hole and Reba is in it and narrates through the whole thing! It was FANTASTIC!!!!

20. At the Stott's cabin I found out that I am not that bad of a shot with a BB Gun!!! It was so much fun!

And I think that kinda sums up my life for the last couple months! Dang, I have a good life! So much fun!!!

And now that I have updated I am going to try to update more often! My goal is to update atleast 5 times in the next 7 days! Hopefully now that I have put it in writing I will feel enough guilt to actually follow through!!!!

P.S. Hi Brandon!
