body movin'

Hi, I went to California for Thanksgiving. And I ate my way through 2 cities and 2 ten hour car rides. Then I came home and Hoon's mom had filled our house with candy.

And did I tell you that before all of that I ordered sweatpants that didn't fit me? SWEATPANTS THAT DIDN'T FIT. So it's going to be a long month around here guys...

Come sometime around May, this little Morgan face

will be joined by a little baby brother face! Kill me now cus I can't handle how cute 2 of them will be.

So far Clifford: The Next Generation would be a total hit in China (you know, cus only boys).

i belong to you

Hey whole world, I joined the throngs and I also saw New Moon last night. Janelle recently did some serious shopping at the teenage section of Nordstrom which got her 4 fancy tickets to an early showing at a theater in Orem.

So Janelle and Tasha and Michelle and I entered a strange land of rich teenagers and the rich moms who dress like teenagers where everyone was wearing too many things in their hair and also SO MANY UGGS. But wow, we had a great night.

And of course, I have some thoughts about the actual movie.
1. Did anyone else notice that Edward's vampire nipples are weird? Cus they are totally weird.
2. The Indian kid actually gives Bella a dream catcher. Hilarious!
3. Teenage love is REALLY serious guys.
4. Did the bigger budget somehow make the dad hotter? Cus he seemed hotter.
5. But why did the bigger budget only pay for Jacob's muscles and not the other werewolf boys' muscles?

After I couldn't help but think two things. You want like a really great surly teenager who is obsessively in love? Pleas watch My So-Called Life (Jordan Catalano!). You want a really great love triangle? Please watch Felicity.

spanish bombs

Aaron and I went to a surprise birthday party for our friend Zach last night. It was Mexican fiesta themed.


And I have two really good Mexican Aaron jokes from the party.

Okay, so after the surprise part everyone (white people) played a party game of Pin the Moustache On the Zach...

everyone except Aaron (the Mexican) who was in the kitchen cooking!!!

Then we went outside to do the pinata.

The birthday boy took a shot,

Kim took a shot,

Miaken took a shot...

but only Aaron could really break the pinata (its in his blood)!!!

Oh man, I crack myself up. was a great night.

happy kid

I love pizza. Like could eat it for dinner every night kind of love it. I also have never met a hot dog I didn't like. So maybe sometimes I get teased about having the taste buds of a 5 year old. And I like to think that's not entirely true. But then I was just looking at my afternoon snack.

Which apparently I'll finish eating before I take a nap on my floor mat.

natural beauty

Have you been missing Morgan around here?

Well now he does this face when he knows his picture is being taken.

And he can find his tummy and his nose and 2 out of 3 times he correctly identifies the adults around him.

Oh I love that baby-who-is-turning-into-a-kid.

money, money, money

Back in October on the way home from the Vegas Ragnar race, we listened to an episode of This American Life called, Return To The Giant Pool Of Money which discussed in a really understandable way last year's economic collapse. Like really, everyone should listen to it (and probably also the original The Giant Pool Of Money too).

And part of the reason it was so understandable is because of the Planet Money guys, who know how to take financial talk and turn it into normal people talk. I thought they were great and Aaron informed me that they have a podcast every week where they talk in normal person talk about whatever crazy financial stuff is happening in the country. And Aaron subscribes to it.

So the very next week when I heard an ad on the radio saying those Planet Money guys, Alex Blumberg and Adam Davidson were coming to Salt Lake for an interview I got us tickets. What a great girlfriend!

That interview was last week and it was very cool and informative and mostly filled with grownups. But we were okay because Aaron was wearing a cardigan.

Seriously though, listen to those guys.

I saw this bookmark at Barnes & Noble last week (when I went to buy a book that was in the New Age section...self roast).

Women of America, I am ashamed.

I think the internet just made me realize I can never be pretty with my current short haircut.

Feel really sorry for me please.

we live again

We're making Loy Krathong boats again this year to float anger and grudges down City Creek. And again we won't be making the beautiful banana leaf boats you'd see in Thailand,

but rather, we're making paper plates and construction paper boats like you'd see in an elementary school art class.
