"Two"

I've been obsessed with a few things lately...


1. The Wilkinson Quints

Ok.. I think it might be seriously creepy that I just posted a picture of a woman I don't even know.. but she' s pregnant with over 20 lbs. of babies -- UNBELIEVABLE. Ever since Andrea showed me her blog I've been checking it like crazy, and she finally had the babies. I just can't wrap my mind around 5 babies at once. It's like a freaking litter.2. My new yellow flats that I got a killer deal on. I kind of loved going to Africa because everything I wanted before I left is now on sale... HOLLA!

3. Guitar Hero... So I haven't played since Sunday, but I honestly can't stop thinking about it. I definitely need to head over to Annie's for a big competition.

Hopefully if I put in enough practice time I'll get this good... This guy seriously cracks me up.


4. Yorkiepoos... I saw one yesterday at Jamba Juice, and I just really want one.
I NEED A DOG!

5. RYAN ADAMS...
I've been listening to this song nonstop ... I'm so excited for the show tonight I'm sick to my stomach.


6. Flight of the Conchords -- Business Time
This might be the funniest thing I've ever seen... Check it out...


7. J-DAWGS
Yesterday while I was in Provo I stopped and got one. I keep thinking about it. Not sure there's anything better than a J-Dawg with special sauce, onions, and pickles. I even talked Pinkie into eating some and I'm pretty sure she's sold.

8. The Simpsons Movie

WOW... seriously a laughed so hard I cried a few times. Spider Pig, Spider Pig.. I just can't get it out of my head...

And there's my list of random obsessions...


"Killing in the Name Of"

This weekend we went up to Star Valley... OH BOY... I love love love Wyoming. Seriously my summers aren't complete if I don't get to spend a few days up there. This weekend was especially fun -- We had a lot of people up there and there was always stuff going on.

Here's the rundown..

Peter and Tia brought Guitar Hero, and we were all addicted. You know there's something wrong if Suz is getting in on the video game action...

Here's Peter rocking "Killing in the Name Of"... I think even Pinkie and Rulon now know the lyrics to this pleasant Rage Against the Machine Song... I still can't get it out of my head.

Joe... Rockin' the Power Lung... It's so funny to watch people play this stupid game... We were cracking ourselves right up.

Here's me and my favorite person in the world -- Ferg Dawg -- at the Snake River.


Sometimes I wonder why we think we're professional enough to go down in inflatable kayaks...
After the river we headed up to Jackson to eat at Sweet Water... I'm not sure you can beat an elk burger and some bread pudding...


After lunch the boys left us stranded in the stupid K-Mart parking lot while they went in search of a second guitar and the 80's version for Guitar Hero.. Like I said.. we were seriously addicted.

We also squeezed in some time at the RV Park Pool... QUALITY...

Ellie and me in the pool...

I still can't get over how freakin' cute Ellie is...


We took the dogs on walks and Roco got attacked by some burs... He enjoyed the removal process...
At some point Olivia stole my camera and had a photo session... She's getting pretty good... Here are the results...
She did some modeling herself...
When I wasn't playing guitar hero... I knitted this scarf...

Roco really likes it...

And I got around to making another purse... SUCCESS.

Romey and I had some fun on the ride home...

I have to say.. this weekend is making me dread going back to NY... I'd rather just stay in Star Valley for the rest of my life.

"With or Without You"

So... a year ago Michele and I moved to the big city -- I've been thinking about that move a lot lately. When we got there we didn't have any friends so we watched DVD's of Friends like crazy.

This episode popped into my head the other day... It's the one where Ross makes the list... Just curious who you all sided with...

"Smush It"

TODAY WE WENT TO CHADDERS!
OH MY OH MY... I LOVE MYSELF SOME ANIMAL STYLE FRIES, A CHEESEBURGER, DP, AND CHOCOLATE SHAKE.. IT DOESN'T GET MUCH BETTER.. ALL OF THE CRAPPY AFRICAN FOOD SEEMS LIKE SO LONG AGO.. PLUS IT WAS FUN TO CHAT WITH DAVEY AND P-DAWG....

IN OTHER NEWS.. I SOLD MY FIRST PURSE.. THANK YOU TIA...

AND MY KIDS GOT A KICK OUT OF MY VIDEOS FROM THE SAFARI.. ALL IT TAKES IS LIONS, ELEPHANTS AND GIRAFFES TO GET THEM TO SIT STILL...

AND I JUST COULDN'T RESIST THIS ONE OF ELLIE.. I THINK SHE'S A PRETTY CUTE ONE..

"Fingers to Fists"

Davis gave me a fun camera for graduation... Since we were all clueless as to what to do with the camera.. we took these shots the day I got it... We were all looking pretty hot...
I didn't want to take the camera to Africa since I didn't know how to use it yet... it just didn't seem worth it. Today we got the camera back out and started experimenting...

First up, Grandma Pinkie lookin a little blurry
Next... Me lounging on the couch trying to recover from my inability to sleep


Olivia striking a pose

Mr. Jay Boy


Miles Baby

Matt went out and started getting some shots of the plants...
I have to admit.. I'm pretty excited about the camera... Hopefully my skills will improve...

Next we headed out to the pool party... MTV STYLE...

Miss O Working It

Jay getting ready to go
Speaking of pictures... I asked Nici to do me ONE simple favor and email some pics she has that I want. This is the one she sent me.... SUCKER. Nici.. be normal.. send me normal pics....

OH ya... Davis officially knows more about Italy than Peter.... He bought a Vespa! I think instead of "Peter Certified Facts" they will now be called "Davis Certified Facts". Some body's taking over Peter's territory.

This one cracks me up.. the goggles, the helmet... just the idea of Davis cruisin around, on a scooter, in NY is a pretty funny one...
But I will say this... The scooter spits da truff and gets us to where we be being at.. ya know wha' i'm sayin?

And just in case you weren't aware of Davis's star status it's certified here.

In other news this is one of my favorite videos from Africa. This little boy was following us down the street, and I just couldn't get enough of him.


I think that's enough random randoms for you... maybe more to come tomorrow for the big holiday!

"Almost Lover"

In the winter Nici, Heber, and I saw A Fine Frenzy open for Pete Yorn. She was amazing. At the show we got a free EP, but I've been waiting for her full album to come out. I got on iTunes today, and what do you know.... I've been listening to it for the last three hours... Here's her video...Check it out.

"A Day in the Life"

The other day we were sitting outside waiting for a ride that never came, and I got my camera out to entertain myself (please forgive the quality of the pics, I'm not professional like some of you)... Here's what I saw...

Missionaries
This is a very regular sighting... Three men crammed on a boda boda (motorcycle taxi)

Goats walking down the street...

The Church

Notice the woman sitting side-saddle... That's how you gotta do it in a skirt...

Look closely at this one... A man is carrying those logs on a bike and pushing it...

The mini-buses we take everywhere...

More random stuff getting hauled on bikes...

A load of people hanging out of a truck...

A boy selling bread...

Done and Done
