day after sanksgibing aka my second favorite day of the year

Time with the family equals LOL's but thats Lots of Laughs in this case!  We had a real good time hittin' up modern display and the Christmas tree lot!  Gee I love my family!

Every year we make Jordan stand by the tree and she misses out on all the fun..... she finally caught on this year and refused!  We had to get a picture!
I thought this might go nicely over Jordans bed.  With all the people who have slept in that California King, she agrees!
This year we were deciding between two dickens village pieces, the bookstore, and the violin shop.  Lets just say Jord has had a rough go with both books and the violin.  My dad once told her he would beat her if she kept practicing violin.  Needles to say, Jordan never made it past tucka tucka stop stop (lower skill level than twinkle twinkle little star).  Books..... well if you knew Jord it would all make sense!  Conversation between Jordan and Quin....
Jordan:  Two things I hate, violin, and books.
Quin:  Well Jord, there is no tanning salon here!
We are all just waiting for the day Jordan has her first baby.  She is going to apply leg makeup all over that thing the second it comes out.  Something else she told me on this trip, "I just love Orange!  I love the color orange, oranges, and orange skin."  You said it girl, you said it!

We never fail to get a five pound box of Cummings chocolates!  If you haven't been, you should go!!!

My family has this odd talent for making REALLY ugly faces!!!
Oh yes, and we also hit up this place!  If you haven't been there either, you should!!!

Great day.  Great family.

a game and a shot at fame.

Well.... the shot at fame was a while ago... you know... the whole Price is Right thing but I wanted something that rhymed with game.  Just trying to keep it real here.  Yesterday was the Utah State vs. BYU game.  Between camping out on the hyper field for days for tickets and having to get a wrist band to ensure you get in, Utah State makes a pretty big deal out of this whole thing.  Can't say the same about BYU.... but..... whatever, we won!  It  may have been freaking freezing, our toes may have felt like they were going to fall off, and I may have been embarrassed a bit at some of the cheers we yelled, but it was a very good time!  Yesterday was a good day to be an Aggie!

On another note, my VERY favorite part of the day was when Ben Kime came over and ate quickstop food with me.  Then Natalie came home and Ben, Nat, and I all stood in front of the mirror in the living room talking about working out and flexing our muscles trying to get JUST the right lighting.  We may or may not have gone around in a circle feeling each other muscles.  I guess that's what you do when you're 2hawt2handle... NBD

This morning we went to Kneaders for some all-you-can-eat french toast!  Oh. My. Word.  I have never had kneaders french toast and it is seriously AMAZING!  Worth all 500 calories for each slice!  Now its snowing outside and I'm heading to the gym to hopefully burn off at least one slice of the two and a half that I ate.... whoopsies!!!!

Does anyone else kinda feel like they just want to sit in the warm house and watch the snow all day I like I do?  NOPE gotsta hit that gym people!!!!!

hello snow, goodbye steam shower

Today I enjoyed the freshly fallen snow with my little sis Heather and also FINALLY sold my steam shower!

Yep!  Remember this?  This may or may not have been one of the greatest things that has happened to me in my life.  I remember the day after was unreal.  I couldn't stop laughing about the whole situation.... and to think we almost didn't go because we wanted to sleep in.  Thank you price is right winnings for providing me with the money to buy my beloved new camera!  Drew Carey, I love you!
