Girl Can Ski!

Special thanks to my sister Lisa and Bro-in-law for letting us join their family vacation. The water was amazing and so was the food my sister cooked while we were there!

Dang we're cute!

I have loved George Strait music for as long as I can remember. I think I can sing-a-long with almost every George song (and there are a ton of them). George is coming to Utah this friday night for a concert at the Usana Amphitheater. It is rumored that he hasn't played a concert in Utah in twelve years.

A bunch of buddies and I have tickets and we are all getting pretty excited. Sunday night we all sat on the porch and tried to think of what songs he might play and we have no idea which handful he'll pick. One thing is for sure we'll be singing-a-long in the cheap seats (but the cheap seats were pretty damn expensive).

Fishless Fishing!

My cousin Andy invited me up for an evening of fishing near Bear Lake, about two weeks ago. We fished Bloomington creek. It was a great time and really good to spend some quality time with my cousin. No fish for me, but Andy caught one and had a few on! Here are some pics Andy snapped of me flogging the stream.

Things We Do For Love!

I love anything outside, but if there is one thing I don't do it is golf. In fact I have not been golfing since I was twelve years old. It was so bad my brothers made me stop half way through 9 holes because we were running out of balls.

Anyway things with my best friend j are going pretty good and this morning I went golfing with her brother. I told him I would go if he needed a caddy or if he wanted a good laugh. He got the later today!

Par was 35 and I scored a very generous 58 and lost about 15 balls! Needless to say we laughed a lot. I think i'll stick with shooting birds and fly fishing.

The BEST Day!

Yesterday was one of those days that I could sense everyone who saw j and me wished they were us!

j is my best friend and she has been away for a year and a half and now she is back, and we are making up for lost play time.

Sick Day

I'm taking my first official sick day and the best part is I'm not even sick!

There are a few things in life that come before work on my list of priorities.... (okay let's be serious my "More important than work list" is pretty damn long. As it should be, right?)

Tomorrow I'll be heading to Jackson Hole.

In ode to my skipping work I want to include a snipit of a book I've been reading recently, and that was highly recommended to me by my cousins Andy and Shawn. The book is titled "Legends Legacy", by Mike Gaddis.

"... suddenly it was July. For grown-ups there was little escape. Maybe a few stolen moments under the shade of a maple tree, but there was livelihood to be won and always a thing to be done... One of the blessings of boyhood was freedom from such convention. We promptly stripped to cut-off pants, less when out of sight, and relegated hard soled shoes to the hall closet. For us the curtain was rising on another joyous season, and we answered it almost instinctively."

This is a picture of my Oldest sister Lisa and me answering the call of summer instinctively...
