Update Coming Soon...

...until then, here's a pic of my lunchtime visitors today at work! Monster Claire is becoming quite a handful...she doesn't really like to hold still and when you try to get her to hold still, she makes this sweet little face:
It's kind of a mix between a grunt/growl/smile/laugh/let-me-go kind of a face. I. Love. It. And I love how big her eyes are!

Sneak Peek

Work has been busy these last couple weeks as we've been getting ready for a product release! The two new collections coming out are kinda baby themed...lil' buddy and lil' miss. Josh did an awesome job on the lil' boy one (it's way cute!) and I did the little girl collection. It's always a good feeling to be done with a collection. It looks like it'll be out at the end of June/beginning of looking for it!

Oh--American Idol finale = party tonight!!!

Good Times...

(image from Ballet West blog)
This weekend was full of ups and downs and everything between. Saturday night was definitely a high! We were at the ballet in Salt Lake...a fairly 'modern' ballet performance. One part of the program featured the men in the company. From the program:

"Those who have never seen a male dancer often have low expectations. Many expect the male dancer to be weak, feminine or just plain bad. They are the opposite. The men of Ballet West are strong, masculine, talented dancers that I wanted to show off to the public. They are strong but not stiff. They are fluid but never weak. The expectations for a male dancer can be dull and gray. With this piece I hope to create something that rises above that grey expectations."

I'm not sure how masculine the dancers were, but a funny thing did happen while they were dancing. In the middle of the dance, one of the dancers' pants ripped right up the backside...and there was no hiding it!! I'm not sure what the dancers had on under their pants, but it couldn't have been much. Poor guy. We laughed the whole way home! :)

BYU Intramurals

We decided to go watch our ward intramural kickball game tonight and I'm so glad we went! It was so funny watching people play kickball with such passion...I kind of felt like I was back in elementary school! The rules were kind of...weird to say the least. It took the whole game to figure out how to play kickball BYU style. Some rules from BYU Intramural Kickball:

• Outs don't really count; outs just kick you off the base. 3 outs ≠ end of an inning. Once you've scored 8 points, the inning is over.
• If you had runners on any of the bases at the end of an inning, they returned to that base when your team was up to kick again.
• If you kick a home run, you don't really get a home run. You only get to go to second base.
• Girls get two pitches, boys get one.
• It takes 5 refs to officiate.

I think we'll be going to more games in the future, followed by Frozen Yogurt. So, so good! Cheap entertainment, right?


So...originally I *REALLY* wanted Danny and Adam to be in the final two. I've changed my mind. I really, really, really want Kris and Adam to be in the finals!! My FAVE of the night--BY FAR--was Kris' second performance. Amazing. This is the first time I've voted all season! I can't wait for tomorrow!!

Out for a Ride

Yesterday was such a beautiful day and I couldn't pass up getting my bike out and going for a ride! I rode over to Katie's place along the Provo River Trail with my camera in hand to document the ride...
I love riding along the Provo river. Recap of the ride:
• There was a weird guy catching snakes along the river for fun and letting kids pet them. Weird.
• Two guys 'river rafting' down the river
• Almost hit 2 pedestrians (but it wasn't my fault!)
• Thinking about September 11th as I pass by the memorial
• Thought about joining the kids at the skate/bike park--or not.
• Got weirded out by the crazies at the KOA

I love spring in Provo!

Celebrating Cinco Ocho de Mayo

Didn't do much to celebrate the fifth of May, so we're celebrating tomorrow night -- aka, Ocho de Mayo! On the 5th, Claire and I spent the evening watching Joe's softball was actually a pretty intense game and Claire loved playing with, singing to, rolling around in and eating the grass. All the little boys that were there wanted to come play with her...she's already a total flirt and I love it!
