Amazing Art

If you get the chance to see the Body Worlds 3 exhibit while it is in Salt Lake, you should definitely go! We went on Saturday afternoon, and it was amazing. There were so many interesting displays, and you learn so much about the human body. We wanted to go to the Body Worlds Exhibit in Los Angeles last time we were there, but Emily had no desire to see it and we didn't end up going. So when we found out that it was going to be coming to Utah we were so excited! I am happy to report that it was as fabulous as I hoped it would be.

Friendly Competition

Last Saturday night we decided to stay home and have a BBQ with our neighbors. We invited our friends Chaz and Shay down to enjoy the BBQ with us, but we were turned down. Something about the drive being too far, I think. So we went ahead without them. The BBQ was delicious, as it always is when Brett mans the grill (thanks honey!). We had fun hanging out with our neighbors, and the Collings family. Brett played football with the guys while I sat around talking with the girls. It was a lot of fun.

Later that night after we were done cleaning up, Shay sent us this picture in a text message:

I think they were trying to convince us that their party was better. I think I believe them.

This is a new one

We saw a license plate frame yesterday that had us both laughing out loud! I normally don't find too many of these to be funny, but this one was good! It said:

Yes, I'll see you at church....
....but only if you're sitting by a window.

What's the best licence plate frame or bumper sticker you've ever seen?

We Never Thought This Day Would Come....

On Sunday afternoon we decided we would take Belle to the park and see if she would play in the stream....I know what you are thinking "Belle? Play in the water....yeah right!" But we had never tried it, and we've lived by that park for almost two years now. So we thought what 'what the hell, let's just see what happens'.

As soon as Brett through her ball, she jumped right in! She didn't want to play with her ball or her rope bone, so Brett decided to break off a stick and see if she would chase was her favorite! We were probably there for an hour, and she was in the water most of the time. She even met a friend while she was playing, another dog named Abby, and they had fun! Don't believe me? See for yourself~

I was tagged by Heather! We have been friends for SO many years, but lost touch for a little while and were recently reunited through the blog world. Thanks for the tag Heather. :)

Here goes nothin'!
1. I really love to travel! I haven't been many places in my lifetime, but the places I have been are super fun! I think that my favorite vacation ever would have to be 2 years ago when Brett and I took the road trip of a lifetime! We started at our house in Tooele and drove to Reno where we got to hang out with his sister Tanya and her cute family for a few days. Then from Reno we drove over the Sierra Mountains into Sacramento, we continued on to San Francisco where we got to see the infamous Golden Gate Bridge! It was awesome. Then we headed down to San Jose where we took a tour of The Winchester Mystery House. It was so cool, if you ever get a chance to go you should totally do it! From San Jose we drove all the way down the coast of California (Highway 1) to Los Angeles, it was gorgeous!! I got a little bit car sick because of how the road winds in and out with the coastline, but all in all it was a great drive. We stayed with Emily for a few days, and had a lot of fun! We went to Universal Studios, the Santa Monica Pier, had dinner at The Geisha House (where I tried Sushi for the first time, and discovered it wasn't disgusting). Then drove back to Tooele. I think the whole trip lasted like 10 days, and we were in the car for over 36 hours. It was awesome!

2.It is my dream to be an author someday. I love reading and writing, and I have been writing poetry since I was really young. I am currently writing two books, a novel and a children's book. So watch for me at Barnes and Noble someday (hopefully sooner, rather than later). :)

3.I really like quilting. It's my 'old lady' habit, as Brett would put it. :) I think it's a lot of fun to start with just a bunch of scraps of fabric, and then by the time you are done it's a beautiful quilt! Thanks Gwen and Kristi for teaching me all that I know!

4.I love to walk through houses that are being built! I like to go back at different stages of construction and see the progress, and get ideas for our next house.

5.My favorite weekend activity is just hanging out with Brett and Belle. It doesn't matter what we are doing, just as long as we are together. He's my Best Friend in the whole world, and I don't know what I would do without him!

6.I used to make fun of people who had blogs. I didn't understand why someone would waste their time on a website about themselves. Then we started getting pressure from people to join Myspace or Facebook, and since we weren't really into the whole 'looking for new friends on the Internet' idea, I decided that Blogger would be a better way to go. So I gave in and started one, now I have three. :) Funny how things work out, isn't it?

Well that's enough about I want to hear about you! I tag Amanda, Anna, Brooke D., Gwen, Jodi, and Laura!

It's hard to believe that it has really been 7 years since the Twin Towers fell. It was a tragic day, and I remember it vividly. I was a Junior in high school, and all we did in our classes that day was watch the footage on TV. I first heard about it that morning on the radio while I was driving to school, I didn't believe it at first, so I changed the station. Boy was that stupid! It wasn't until I got to my first class that morning that I realized it was true. I was in shock. I didn't think that I would ever really see something like this in my lifetime.

The thing that sticks out the most to me about the day though, is leaving class to call Brett and find out if he had heard about it yet. I think we talked for 15 or 20 minutes, and when I came back to class no one had even noticed that I was gone. Not even my teacher. Everyone was glued to the TV. Nothing else that day seemed to matter.

It was amazing to see the heroic people of NYFD and NYPD trying to sort through the chaos, and help the residents of New York. They are brave men and women, and I think that even though it has been 7 years, they still deserve a big THANK YOU!!

I will never forget that day. Ever. What do you remember?
