What we've been up to...

A couple of weekends ago we went to go stay at the brand new Encore hotel. The newest Steve Wynn property. They were giving away killer deals for locals and so we jumped on the chance. The place is pretty cool so if you are ever in town, you should check it out.
See, it does pay to be a local around here.

I also had a movie weekend which I haven't done in forever. I wanted to see more but apparantly everyone thought that 2 movies was plenty. I guess I just need to start going by myself...

We saw Slumdog Millionaire. Great movie if you haven't seen it.
We also saw Revolutionary Road. A movie that made you somewhat think, but pretty depressing. The acting was good though.

Ellie has learned The Pledge of Alligiance, now I am just trying to get it on video.

Oh yes, and like I said I got suckered into joining facebook. And I have dreamt about the damn thing every night since. Freak!

That's about all over here. Sorry for the lame update but I figured it's almost February, I better get something else in before that!

facebook?

To facebook or not to facebook?
That is the question...

I have had a few people tell me I should join, but I have no idea what the flip it really is or how it works. Plus the fact that I feel like I'm too old to do it.
Anyway, is it basically like myspace, where you just have conversations with people so I could still do the blog? And keep in mind, I am not the kind of person who goes out and says please be my friend and thanks for the add (like myspace) so if it's like that, I don't think I want in.

Anyway, just inquiring, anything anybody can answer would be great.
And, another thing, is it going to be so addicting that I won't be able to get anything else done including this blog?

edited: just found this blog post, and yes it answered many questions. But I still need to hear from you people...

edited again: I took the plunge. I signed up. Let's see how this goes.

bored?

Apparantly, I am the only one.
No one on my bored list is updating their blogs!
Come on people, there has to be something going on???

January 20, 2009

yes we can.

I have to say that I am pretty excited about what President B.O. (as I like to call him) is going to do around here.
Only time will tell I guess.

And I'm sorry if I have eliminated all of my family members from reading this blog again by stating the above. But you should continue, you are going to miss out on good stuff!
Stay tuned...

One more thing, if Jessica does leave a comment on this, I am already laughing at what I think she might say!

And last but not least, a little video quiz...

as if you didn't already want to buy a coffee

or a delicious rice krispy treat for that matter.
Now you have an excuse to get your butt over to Starbucks!

guilty pleasures.

Does anyone out there watch The Bachelor?
Come on, you know you do...
Anyway, am I the only one who absolutely loathes Shannon?
Ugh, she drives me crazy, I'm writing this as I'm watching it, I can only hope she goes home tonight!

awkward.

So, do you ever have one of those awkward moments?
In one of those awkward moments, I really mean any awkward moment really.
Well, I had one today.
I called my friend Liz to wish her a Happy Birthday, when she informs me that her mom died a few days before Christmas. I was floored, shocked, and obviously had no idea.
While I was calling to wish her a Happy Birthday, all I could say was I'm sorry.
So, obviously, I should probably check in with my friends more often.
Who knows what they have to tell you.
With that, I challenge you - call, email, write a letter - whatever, just get in contact with that person who you haven't talked to in a while.
You don't know what they have to tell you until you talk to them!

Go Utes!

Go Utes. The next best thing to not being there is a party at the Bagley's. Party on where ever you are!
And Lindsi and Zach, I'll be looking for you...
