Glenn Beck

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 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!

Happy Anniversary!!

Jordan and I have officially been married for two years! Monday, the 6th, was the official date and I can't believe it's already been that long. At the same time it seems like we've always been us. So Jordan sent me these beautiful red roses to my work, which are my favorite. I got to leave them there on my desk all week since I am there more than I am home, and I received many wonderful compliments from our many patients. Now they all know what an awesome husband I have!

To celebrate our anniversary, I had booked a room at a resort in Park City for us to just spend a night away from the norm. We didn't get to stay long, but it was nice to get away and spend some real quality time, which is hard to come by these days for us. Friday night we went out to this pizza place in downtown Park City. We were very impressed, and highly recommend it. It was however starting to get very cold and I was not completely prepared so we didn't walk around much!

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!

i love fall

So I don't know about anyone else but fall is my absolute FAV time of year. I love the crisp air, wearing sweaters, football games, leaves, pumpkins, Halloween, peaches, pies, and many other things. This fall has started off great and I loved spending this last conference weekend with some of our family. We got to have Ciara and Kent stay with us and we met up with Shandi, Elizabeth and Kenny for dinner after the boys went to the priesthood session. Us girls got to share some quality shopping time at the Gateway while waiting for the boys. Afterward we introduced Kent, Kenny and Elizabeth to the amazingness of Cafe Rio, I'm sure their lives have been changed forever! I am extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful family on both sides and I love them all so much! Thanks for the fun weekend everyone and Happy Fall!
