This past week I got to go with some of my family to see "Aida" at the Hale Theater in Orem. I LOVE going to plays there because of how small it is and how fun it is to actually see the faces of the actors. I never have enough money to get those kinds of seats at the big Broadway shows so it's nice to know what it's like! We go to shows there every once in a while and I think they always do such a great job, and for the price it's really good. So I didn't really know what Aida was about and it was a little different at first but they did realy good. Some of the costuming wasn't my favorite but I got over it. The girl who played Aida was incredible and she actually was in my brother Ryan's ward last year and she sang at Ryan and Lauren's wedding so it was fun to see her in an actual role, her voice is amazing! Before the play we got to go out with everyone to Goodwood which we love, most of them had never been so it was a good chance to introduce everyone to the goodness. I love these fun family nights!

As some of you may know, Celine Dion is my all time favorite singer. I have many of her CDs both in English and French and I just love them all. Jordan took me to her concert in Las Vegas and it was incredible. If it was still there I would go see it again! So I was really excited at the beginning of the year when she announced her world tour for her new CD and was going to come to Salt Lake. I convinced my two sisters to come with me for a girls night out and we have been looking forward to it all year. Then this past week we got a call saying the concert has been postponed from this Friday to Feb. 22nd, which is a Sunday. I was still willing to go but those sisters of mine decided it wasn't worth breaking the Sabbath, I guess they have to set a good example for their kids. ;) So we now have to send our tickets back for a refund and who knows if she'll ever do a concert here again, doubtful since I'm pretty sure she's winding down to try to have more babies after this tour. Looks like our fun-filled girls night is falling apart, but at least we have Twilight to look forward to. If that isn't perfect for a girls night out I don't know what is!

So this post is mainly for Jordan. Over the summer in his free time, he started watching a lot of Glenn Beck's show in the evening. It started with his recent obsession with CNN, the economy, the election, everything! I had no idea this side of Jordan even existed! It has been good for me too though, he educates me. :) So we found out Glenn was coming to UVU for a program because BYU was awarding him the first Pioneer in Leadership award. (Why the program wasn't actually held at BYU I don't know). Jordan really wanted to go but I was kind of dragging my feet...I can only handle so much political talk and I'm getting maxed out! Jordan's wonderful cousin Shandi called us the week of the program and said she got extra tickets and wanted us to come.
Now I have seen Glenn's show quite a bit but never really paid close attention. I have to say that I was very impressed. The speech was on "The Power of Choice." He is really entertaining and quite a crowd pleaser, the audience was just laughing through most of it. But what really impressed me was the 2nd half of his talk. He spoke about his concern for our country and for the citizens with such genuine concern. He got pretty choked up while he spoke about 9/11, John Huntsman Sr. and about the old America and it's unity. I was really moved by how sincere and heartfelt he was, it was really good. I came away really agreeing with Jordan, Glenn is a good guy. If you every have the chance to catch his show or go to one of his programs, it would be worth your time. He is actually going to be coming to SLC touring "The Christmas Sweater" and here is the link for more info http://www.glennbeck.com/content/events/. We are going to try to go, so if anyone wants to join us, let me know! So thanks to Jord and Shandi for the fun night and the experience! Love you both!

Saturday morning we look out the window...and here we are! We knew there was a good chance of this happening, so we weren't totally shocked but I still couldn't believe how much was sticking to the ground! I'm just grateful this didn't happen the year we were married, I would have been so upset. But we actually kind of enjoyed it since that's the tone in Park City, we felt like it was appropriate.
After we checked out we got to spend some time shopping in the outlet mall, where neither of us have been. It was a little chilly walking between stores, but not too bad. We found some pretty good deals, but a lot that we had to pass up! I think that's how it goes for me with every shopping trip though...Jordan was really good about letting me still get some things I wanted, such a good guy. But he knew what he was marrying so I guess it's his own fault! So it was a very succesful trip for us, a way to escape and really enjoy ourselves! Happy Anniversary to us, I hope this year is just as good as the last two, and hopefully even better!
