The BIG (sad) GAME

Dear BYU, I regret to inform you about the absence of your football team Saturday night. Apparently you were unaware your team had a game. Please do not let this happen next year. Don't forget, Meg

One of the hardest things a BYU fan could possibly endure is going to a BYU/UTAH game, cheering in the student section at Rice Eccles. Not only were our tickets in the MUSS, we had to dress appropriately so we weren't heckled (hence all the red). Even though I attend the University of Utah, my love for the Cougs can't be surpassed by the U.Thayne, Lauren and I all watched the game amidst the drunken frat section. It was pretty funny at first, and then it just got annoying. It was a fun game to go to, and after we went to Cinegrill for dinner. Delish!The MUSS passing Swoop up the crowd in the 4th quarter!Thayne and Me, disguised as U fans.

Thayne and Craigy...such a stud!
I found Randi and Becca at half time while I stood in the longest line ever for hot chocolate.

For the past few weeks I have fallen in love with workout DVDs to do at home. Thanks to 'Shaun T', or should I say crazy ab man, I should be able to see my abs in 30 days...if I do it everyday, and eat right. Hmm..what a concept. But yes, I'm going to try it. The workout I did this morning was 40 minutes long, and it definitely burned! I loved it. The hardest part about the workout are the stupid/cheesy/motivating comments he makes the entire time...yes, I can't wait to have abs like yours Shaun T, and when I see you on the street I will come up and show you my abs...

Hopefully I'll start to see some results pretty soon. I still love running, but the problem is my knee hurts from time to time, and this is one of those times. If for some reason you walk past the workout room in my house, and you hear loud music and cheesy comments, it's just me and Shaun T, working out my abs. And now that I'm blogging this, I feel like I really can't slack off!

Halloweeners 5K

This year, Thayne, my mom, Adam, and I all ran in the East Millcreek Halloween 5k! Last year Adam won the whole thing, and this year he came in 2nd. What happened Ad (just kidding :) )! Dad came to cheer us on and was the designated photographer. What would we do without him?
If you look carefully, I'm just barely ahead of Thayne. Actually, we ran the whole 3.1 miles together.

Mom beat her time last year by four minutes!
After the race we all headed to Sharon's for a classic Saturday morning breakfast with Amy as our server. We love Sharon's on Saturdays!

Last Day in London

This morning we got on the tube and went over to Borough Market. Borough is home of the world's best cheese and onion grilled sandwich, among other amazing food. We shared a sandwich, and walked along the Thames eastbound to the London Bridge and Tower Hill. The Bridge celebrated it's 100th birthday in 1994. We went all the way to the top, and all the way to the bottom where the engines used to power the bridge up and down. From there we made some final rounds at Westminster, Regent Street, over to Carnaby and Oxford Circus, and ended in a little plaza for dinner.

I've had so much fun in London, and will definitely miss it! Having Mom and Dad here as been the best way to end the adventure. We've had so much fun together!


We LOVE Paris in the springtime!

In two days, and one night, we conquered Paris! We saw Saint Chapelle, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, walked aloong the Seine, consumed a few baguettes, saw the Royal Opera House, Galeries Lafayette, went to the Musee D' Orsay, The Orangerie, Walked from the Louvre up along the Champs Elysees, saw Napoleon's tomb in Les Invalides, the Rodin Museum, and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

We had so much fun on our little jaunt to Paris. The weather was perfect, and so was our hotel. We loved every minute of it!

Three Londoners

We started the day off at the British Museum where we saw the Rosetta Stone, Ram in a Thicket, Standard of Ur, and so much more. We walked over to Covent Garden and ate lunch out on the patio. It was delicious! After lunch we walked all the way to St. James Park, through to Buckingham Palace. It was such a great day we ended up sitting in sun chairs in Green Park. We topped off the afternoon with some shopping along Piccadilly and went to London Bridge where we enjoyed overlooking the River Thames. Lunch in Covent Garden

A Wicked Day at Cambridge

This morning we got tickets for the Broadway play Wicked. From there, we went to King's Cross station and caught a train to Cambridge. Forty Five minutes later, we were in the heart of Cambridge! Knowing Dad, I wasn't surprised when we ate a nice lunch, where we shared traditional fish and chips, and then went into each of the separate colleges of Cambridge. My favorite was King's College. It was such a nice day for walking around the city and soaking in the college life at Cambridge. We made made our way back to London, and stopped in at the British Library for a look. From there, we went back to Victoria and ate lunch at an Italian restaurant and made it to Wicked just in time. I love Wicked! We had a great day, and had so much fun, and walked ourselves silly!Welcome to Cambridge!Trinity CollegePunting at Cambridge, one of their favorite past times in the city, it's famous!Enjoying the view from one of the many bridges.King's College groundsGrounds at Trinity CollegeAbsolutely WICKED!
