Ever feel like this?

I have nothing else to add. Just thought this was so funny.

Film Fever

I know I've been MIA all week but I've been very busy volunteering with Sundance. Once a year Sundance descends upon the quiet town of Park City and turns it on it's head. The past few years I've spent my time complaining about the traffic and tourists and hating every minute of it. This year i decided to spend the time more positively by volunteering with the festival. I was really hoping that volunteering would be a good experience and i was right!

It has been a really fun week. I've met so many really nice people and I've seen some great films. I'm not really the star-struck type, i really couldn't care less, but it was kind of fun to see some celebrities.

Here's who i met:

Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development)

Emmy Rossum

Richard Branson

Chris Rock

Virginia Madsen

Jeff Goldblum

Michael Shannon (he was high as a kite at the screening. It was too funny)

The films that i recommend are Amreeka, The Anarchist's Wife, and Yes Men Save The World.

Have any of you been to Sundance this year? Any films that you liked or would like to see? Any celebrity encounters/sightings that you would like to share with the group?

The Perfect Profession

Do you like your job? Ever dreamed of doing something more? Well now you can!!! It turns out that you can combine two completely unrelated jobs and make a living.

Just like this man...

Can you not read that? Here...

I'm not really sure what else to say.

If you have a dream...

A Religious Experience

First of all, don't judge me. I really do love church. It was a great lesson. I just have some attention issues.

So i have this ring:

Yes, it's large, but i like it. It's fun. So i was sitting in church, listening intently of course, and decided to try the ring on my thumb. It didn't fit but something struck me like lightening from the heavens. i pulled out my pen and worked my artistic magic.

Tada!!!! Awesome right? What does this look like to you? The Pope? Hmm, that may be sacrilegious. Lots of men wear those hats right? Wait i know!

Pretty great eh? Need another shot? Here you go.

You're welcome.

Let's Go Trojans, Let's Go!!!!

Isn't funny how you still remember all of those cheers from high school but can't remember what you ate for dinner last night? Oh, is that just me? Hmmm.

The Trojan was my high school mascot, and yes, i know, i've heard all the jokes.

The point of all of this (yes, yes, i do have a point) is that i went to my very first professional basketball game on Monday night. I know that is absolutely shocking to some of you but it's just the way it is. I like sports, I enjoy the games, i've just never been to a professional game before. I blame this on not have a boyfriend (and not really having one for the last 10 years, but i digress...).

My friend Brittany has season tickets (she is much more normal than me) and her boyfriend (SEE!!!) couldn't go so i got to go! Yippee! It really was so fun.

They won, i decided it was because i was there. I'm their new lucky charm.

These little boys were so cute. They all had posters of the cheerleaders and they would stand up and shake what their mommas gave them. Quite good dancers actually. The boys, not the cheer leaders...

This is my new boyfriend:

Now i'll for sure have tickets to all the games. Not as good looking as Korver but darn funny. And that's what really counts... after size of his bank account.

Kidding! Egads, calm down kids. I don't care about the money. And let's face it. Looks are WAY more important ;-)

Happy Birthday Mom!!

I get a little stressed before parties...

Happy Birthday Mom and Dad!!!!

My amazing parents have the same birthday but this year was my mom's big Five Oh. We had a little shindig on Sunday and it was so much fun.

This is when she is happiest, holding her babies.

She was very excited about turning 50.

The bouquet of balloons i bought died before the party. I was really sad until Jayne and I realized that it was actually ironic and very funny.

We had tacos, my mom's favorite. Doesn't this look yummy!?

It actually turned out great we were just laughing at how amazing the canned beans looked.

This cake was made by Midway Country Corner Bakery. She does such a great job. Everything she does is beautiful.

This is LaLa's new Princess mirror just like Emmy's. Now she can look in it everyday and remember what an amazing person she is.

This beautiful girl is one of Julie & Jared's. She is a ball of fire!

And this beautiful girl is Jayne's sister Hannah :-)

She is very fond of See-Food. See food! Get It! Ha!

This is our favorite family activity.

Just look at the concentration

I was explaining the facts of life to Cami, she wasn't thrilled.

Thanks so much to everyone that came and I love you Mom and Dad!!

Happy New Year!!

Caleb, Jayne, Emmy and Jonah came up to the parent's house New Years Day and we had a great time sledding.

Doesn't Jonah look super excited?!

"I can't put my arms down!" (can anyone name that movie?)

Everyone else could actually move and had a great time in the snow.
