for the enjoyment of others

Just a little a me makin a fool of myself for you!




well, i skimmed over the ol half marathon in the last post like it was no big deal, but it WAS a big deal.  I'm just waiting on some pictures to post with it.  Soon.

While we wait on that, I'll share a good one.

The race was in Utah.  There were 7 of us driving down.  Someone thought it would be fun to have boys car and a girls car, so we did, and what a time we had!  We stopped in Idaho Falls for gas along the way. (met the strangest man at jack in the box there, but that's another story.)  I was showing the gals in my car how fun we are and I was tapping my leg to the beat while washing the windshield.  Like really tapping/dancing away.  You know, you do what you gotta do when you're in the middle of a 12 hour drive.  I notice another car drive up to the other pump while I'm jammming away, no big deal, we're in Idaho Falls, so already I'm cooler than everybody there and don't have to impress anyone.  I finish up the windows/dance.  I turn to receive my praise from the gals for the entertainment and see the people now filling their car, at the random gas station in Idaho Falls on a Thursday evening.

(this is my sweet basement bedroom where i now reside. just let me know if you want some paint colors)



It's one of our faithful babysitters from Cardston!  Right there holding back a huge laugh at me!  What are the odds that this 12 year old girl, who I have evidence on and am more than certain she has the hots for teacher (yes, the hot Derek teacher), is there at that moment?!!  I have no information to confirm that she was there stalking her hot teacher, but I am sure she now has lost all respect for the cool wife of the hot teacher.  (yeah, I'm the cool wife, or at least i was)  Therefore, she may or may not try to run me out of my position as the cool/hot wife so her dreams can come true.  Good thing we moved and she'll never babysit for us again.


(these happen to be the stairs leading to my sweet basement bedroom. don't think for a second i am unappreciative mom)

Which room are you in at your parents house? I was curious before, but now after seeing the pics of the room I want to know which room it is.
