For Leah!

Last night for the first time in my life I had Lobster and the entire time I was eating it and contemplating eating it I was thinking of my friend Leah.  To say Leah is addicted to seafood is an understatement.  This girl's got lobster bisque running through her veins!  I on the other hand will tell people that I'm allergic to seafood just so they know not to feed it to me.  So I wanted to let her know, because she would be so happy, that I actually liked it.  It didn't have a fishy taste at all!  Next on the menu is lobster bisque, and who knows?  Maybe I'll try scallops again... one day.


Who doesn't LOVE this game?

Yet another fun thing to do while your husband is still away.  Take 15 of your favorite movies, go to IMDB.com and find a quote from each movie.  Post them here for everyone to guess.  NO CHEATING!  Bold it when someone guesses the movie correctly!  Have fun!

*Mickey Blue Eyes*

5. -Tic Tac sir?

Utah Reception

Friday January 2nd me and the fam drove up to Salt Lake for Mack and Breana's Utah reception.  We had SO much fun, like always, staying up way to late, talking and playing games.

Collin found his thumb.

Mike and Kurt, extreme sledding.

Cherie at the Utah Reception

Tess and Drew so happy to wear their head wreaths.

Mack and Breana
The beautiful bride

Breana found this amazing idea on a website.  It's a candy bar!  For everybody's favors they would go and get bag(s) of candy.  She had rock candy, mints, watermelon sours, white chocolate covered pretzels, white chocolate covered cinnamon bears, almonds, black licorice, m&m's, chocolate macs, jelly beans, kisses and a couple of other things I know I'm forgetting.  Everybody forgot why they were there when they reached this table.

Brody was a wedding crasher!

Then before we left Collin was nice enough to smile at us!
