Super Girl

Lyla has been at her grandma's this week and I have been missing her like crazy. It's weird how empty our place feels when she's not running around like a crazy in it.

"With Every Heartbeat"

It's my favorite time of the year.... SYTYCD!! I'd been dying that I hadn't watched at all so last night I took advantage of Davis being gone and watched the 6 hours of performances (don't worry, i skipped a loooooooot of the judges and the goofing around, ugh). I can't stop thinking about this dance.

Now that I'm all caught up I can watch the rest of the season without feeling stressed that I'm behind.

Jump, Jump

I've jumped off quite a few scary things in my life... bungee jumping a few times and many many cliffs. I always pictured myself taking a huge leap off the edge and flying through the air. Then I saw a video of the baby step I took off a bungee platform a few years back and realized that I am the biggest baby when it comes to jumping. I always take the smallest baby step ever. We went cliff jumping in St. George, and a little girl was watching us and right after I jumped she commented on me almost hitting the rock below because I didn't jump out far enough. Then of course Katie went after me and had to do some soaring leap to make my baby step look even worse. I don't know what it is, but I don't think I'll ever be a leaper. Baby steps have always worked out pretty well for me.

24 Hours

I feel like I have been going 90 miles an hour since I started working full-time, but last week just about put me over the edge. I literally worked NINETY HOURS. That might not seem like a lot to you crazies out there who work yourselves to death, but I am not one of those people, and it was a little out of control for me. Somewhere between those working hours I found some time to have some good times ... a movie night with Kristan and Coach T, a sleepover at my mom's, a bike ride with N&D, and then Craig came to town for the weekend so I spent some quality time with D and the boys... we even hit up RAGING WATERS, and I of course won our big game of Hearts... good times. Anyway, Saturday morning when I was heading home from work at 7:30am I realized I had been awake for over 24 HOURS. It's kind of crazy that you can actually have a plan for every minute of the day...

7am -- wake-up
8:30am -- arrive at work
2:30pm -- leave work to go meet D, Craig, and Ryan and Macy at Hire's for onion rings and root beer
4:30pm -- hit up P&T's to pay Romey a little visit and get ready for the night
5:30pm -- D picked me up to head to a reception with the other boys
9pm -- leave reception for dinner at Cheesecake. Blake and I shared because D is an impossible person to try to share with.
11pm -- leave SLC to head back to work in P-town. I was lucky enough to get out of the first 5 hours of my shift.
SATURDAY 7am -- finish up work and head home....
7:45am -- BED, finally!
I squeezed in 4 hours of sleep before hitting the water slides! Don't worry after working another 12 hour shift on Sunday I slept for twelve hours. You'd think that would be enough but I feel like I'm still recovering. Hopefully the four days of camping we have planned this weekend will be just what I need....

Wyoming Run

We just got back from a low key weekend in Wyoming. We made it out of the house for a pretty run on Saturday but that was about it. The most exciting event was Lyla getting into poison and going to the puppy ER at midnight. Now it's back to reality and my alarm is set for 3am. Just the right time to begin a 90 hour work week...

Pump Up The Jam

On our way to the pool this weekend in St. George, N & K fought over who got to pump me. For some reason I wasn't allowed to pump anyone.

Second Place

This run is almost as cool as the one we used to do around Central Park. Almost.

"I Wanna Hold Me The Puppy"

A couple of weeks ago we went up Provo Canyon for tin foil dinners and s'mores. It got kind of chilly so Lyla was up my jacket most of the night and Amelia was completely obsessed with her. Every few minutes she would come running over to me and say, "I wanna hold me the puppy." It's amazing that every little kid remains obsessed with Lyla even when she's not the nicest. Hopefully she'll warm up to Amelia....

5 Year Reunion

A few weeks ago Karen and Bryndee took a break from their fancy lives in London and NYC to visit the small-town girls in Utah. Bryndee, Kristan and I met for mid-week brunch to start the festivities off. Then Karen got in and we had a sleepover and stayed up too late catching up on all of the little things that we used to spend EVERY DAY talking about. We all moved to NYC around the same time and found each other instantly (along with a couple others). I don't think Michele and I would have made it through our first few months without them. I'm constantly trying to convince the rest of them to move to Utah, but I know that will never happen so I'm left with what I can get..... Days like the one Karen and I had after our sleepover where we slept then made our way to brunch with no other plans for ourselves. Then at the same time, we suggested going shopping, like we didn't already know that's what we'd be doing. After a few HOURS of shopping we left the stores with substantially less money than we arrived with because that's what we do, we talk each other into making crazy purchases that we would never make with anybody else and we giggle about it. As we make our next plan we both suggest at the same time AGAIN movie. Who were we kidding this time? We knew that's how we'd end our reunion because... That's just how we do it. For a whole day I felt like it was five years ago, and we were back in the city without a care in the world. Now if we could only make it happen more often.
