Man I stink at blogging!

Once again, I am so bad about keeping this blog updated. A lot has been going on in our lives over the past few months. I finished my first year of coaching Lancelles, it was an amazing first year full of so many great memories. Now that the second year has started, I have forgotten how hectic it is, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. We have a very talented team and can't wait to get the school year started. Josh graduated in May with his Bachelors of Accounting and has started his Masters program. I am so proud of him and all of his accomplishments. Between jobs and school we don't see each other that much but having Josh get his Masters will be a great thing in the long run. Probably one of the most exciting things that has happened to us is we bought our first house!!!!! We have a townhome in Layton and absolutely love it! Just the right size for us now! We just got our grass in and Josh told me we can get a dog once we have grass...soooooooo....we will see what happens. Oh yeah and my best friend Michelle bought the home right next to me. Ha ha ha....we just can't live with out each other I guess. Our summer has been filled with work, school, and drill practices, but we did take some time to make a trip to Walt Disney World and to Universal Studios to see The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (which is AMAZING!). I took over 600 pictures, but I decided it wouldn't be a great thing to put all of them on here so I just chose a few of the highlights from our trip. It was very hot and very crowded, but it was a fantastic trip and we all had a wonderful time!
Me and Josh eating with our favorite dog, Pluto, at the Garden Grill restaurant at EPCOT.
Waiting for Illuminations at EPCOT, it was such a beautiful night!

Me and Pappy!

This picture is out of order, but this is us on our way to Florida!

Me and Dad enjoying Butter Beer at Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Let me tell you, this stuff is amazing! It's like a great mixture of cream soda and buttercotch.

Me and my wand! This is my birthday wand but I wasn't really in love with it so I chose to get Hermoine's wand instead. Josh chose Professor Lupin's and my Dad got Sirius Black's.

One morning, my Dad surprised us with a Segway tour that was at the Fort Wilderness Resort. we drove all around the resort and then to Wilderness Lodge. It was one of the funnest experiences I have ever had.

FANTASMIC! One of my favorite shows in WDW. I always get choked up everytime I watch it. I know I am an emotional wreck!

A look at Hogsmeade!

Alright, the ride that is inside Hogwarts is probably one of the best rides ever! I can't really explain what it is like but WOW! Everyone needs to be making plans to go see it for themselves!

I am horrible at blogging!

So I am horrible at this blogging thing and I haven't updated since I think October. Soooooo....Over those last few months I have been busy with holidays and drill team. Also me and Josh bought a house!!!!! We are hopefully moving in the end of April. We are super excited and can't wait to move in. Below are some pics of our recent trip to Nationals in Anheim where we took a 3rd, a 4th , and a 5th in our categories out of 22 teams. While we were there we went to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags, and we saw a produciton Dream Girls(pic below) at the Ahmason Theater. We had a blast and it was sad coming home to this cold weather.
It's crazy to see how this year has breezed by. We are already getting things ready for the new team! These girls this past year have worked so hard and I am so proud of them!

Catch up!

My last post has been a while so here is a little catch up.........At the beginning of October we surprised Josh for his birthday and took him to Disneyland. He was totally surprised and we had such a fun time. All the cute Halloween decorations were up and got to ride Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy, which is something new they do now for Halloween. We also got to see the new parade which was very fun!

In the middle of October it was Homecoming week, so here is a pic of the team dressed up in old Lancelle costumes for the parade. If there are any old Lancelles looking at this, see if you can recognize an old costume from the past.......

It's that time of year....FOOTBALL SEASON! Our Lancelles have performed at two football half-times and have done a great job at both performances! We have received a lot compliments and lots of girls saying they are going to try out next year! I just love these girls and I am so proud of them! GO LANCELLES!!!!! This was our first football routine to "Mercy"!

For the Lancelles second performance they rode onto the field on Harley's, it was soooo cool! The crowd was screaming and going crazy! The girls had a blast!

Summer '09

So it has been a loooooonnnggg time since my post and some of my friends have been asking why I haven't posted anything in a long time....well I have been very busy this summer and so here is a post dedicated to what my summer has been like. This summer me and michelle had fun going to the American Idol concert and seeing sexy Adam in his sexy vest. We also went to the Il Divo concert and ran up to the front of the stage and got to shake their hands! Ah it was amazing!

In June, me, Michelle, Sonya, Angie, Abby, and Christi went to Vegas for the IECSC which is a coference for esthetics. We had a blast going to the conference and buying lots of fun products, we went to a couple of clubs and danced the night away!, and we also got to see the show La Reve which is at the Wynn. It is an amazing water acrobatic show that is definitely worth seeing!

In May, me and Michelle were asked to be the new drill team coaches for the Layton High Lancelles. We are very busy getting up for 6 am practices everyday but we are loving every minute of it. We have darling girls on the team and couldn't ask for a better one. The pictures below are of our first get-to-know-party and drill camp.

What will you celebrate?

Back in April, me, my Dad, and Michelle went to Walt Disney World in Orlando. Josh was unable to come cause of school. We spent a fun-filled week visiting with some old friends who lived in Orlando, going to the parks, and eating some yummy food. The view from my favorite restaurant California Grill. At night it's a great place to watch the fireworks.

Toy Story Midway Mania! One of our favorites. Here is me and Michelle stylin' the 3D glasses.

Me and Michelle were chosen to be extras in the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular!!!!!!

Michelle got really excited to be in the show and broke her flip flop coming back to our seats. She had to go around Disney's Hollywood Studios with one shoe for a little while until we founf flip flops that matched her outfit.

Pluto in Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade! I love that dog!

On one of the days, we met up with Tim Goins who is one of my Dad's old students. Tim is a cast member down there at the Festival of the Lion King show.

Oh the classic "take a picture of yourself on a ride picture" I think the sun was just a little to bright for me and Michelle.

Michelle and the world's largest rice krispie treat. We were obsessed with them the whole trip.

Here we are at Whispering Canyons at our hotel Wilderness Lodge. Michelle wanted a Diet Coke to drink for breakfast and our waitress thought that was silly so check out the Diet Coke they brought her out.
