My New Theme Song

I heard this on the radio for the first time tonight (and thanks to the song identifier app on my droid I was able to figure out what the name of it was!). It's now on a couple of playlists, and it's my ringtone. Let's just say I kinda like it.

I read a few of the comments on youtube about the video.
My favorite one:
'Everything about Darius Rucker says chill.'
Love it.
And I agree.

This song kind of reminds me of the broken
road song by Rascal Flatts,
I've never really liked that one though
(I have my reasons but they'll take too long to explain).
If you're interested, ask me sometime. (:

The Legend

Last week Wednesday I was able to use one of my parents' basketball tickets and watch BYU play CSU - or, in other words, I got to see 'The Jimmer' live. It was awesome. BYU has had such a great team this year.

before the game my dad and I saw LaVell Edwards (BYU's legendary football coach - renamed the football stadium for him when he retired), and then Elder Bednar came and joined them.

i wonder what it would be like to see such a large version of my face...

It was so fun to be there. I'm so glad I was able to go. The reffing was pretty terrible that game (the ref's weren't seeing any fouls from CSU... well, maybe a few), but we still pulled out with a win. Which is always nice. My dad's comment on the reffing - 'This is Obama-reffing. It doesn't matter how good you are, or how hard you've worked, we're going to make you all equal.' I must say I agreed with the statement.

BYU playes SDSU on Saturday, and if you missed the game, that's really too bad. It was a great game, and showed how many awesome players BYU has this year - it's not just Jimmer... (:

update: Oh, and apparently I was on the jumbo-tron in the arena. I totally missed it, but during the 2nd half I got a text from my friend Jane saying that if I was at the game, I was on the jumbo-tron. Jane, thanks for letting me know in the first place, and thanks for the reminder in your comment!

Love It!

I heard this song on the radio tonight and forgot how much I like it.

They do kind of a weird key change thing, but I really like the dancing guy.

And here's the no key change version.

Photo Catch-Up

some random pictures:

it happened in the middle of the night after Dingo woke me up to go out
they both misbehaved (somehow) and after I got mad at both of them,
they decided they needed comfort against their common enemy

a triple-cab truck
never seen one of those before.

Polar Bear Plunge

Tonight for my ward home evening, the activity was the 'polar bear plunge'. The first counselor shoveled the snow off the pool cover, opened up the shallow end, and a group of us gathered around in swimsuits, shorts & t-shirts, and in one case - jeans & a t-shirt. I was one of the group.

I had done this while living in Vegas a few times, but didn't think I could use that as a way out while living in Utah.

Verdict: cold! But not as cold as I thought it would be. As soon as I got out I was feeling warmer and tempted to go back in and try it a second time. But I didn't.

I would definitely do it again.
