A New Favorite!

In Huntington Beach, where we spent the afternoon shopping, we came across a restaurant which has become one of my new absolute favorites!  It is called BJ's RESTAURANT and not only did I scarf down both their BBQ Chicken Salad and a slice of their famous deep dish buffalo chicken pizza but just about died when the waiter brought out BJ'S FAMOUS PIZOOKIE!!!  
For those of you who don't know what a Pizookie is, I highly recommend you find out!  It is a fresh out of the oven cookie baked in a skillet with scoops of vanilla ice cream on top.  It was enough for the 5 of us to share, but I was secretly wishing there was just one spoon and I was the one 
holding it!  My dear friend Megan spoiled Kelly and I while we were down in Dallas for the last Cowboys game with her own version of the Pizookie. I've made up my mind that I am either going to have to petition they build a BJ's here in Utah or I might just have to fly Megan out here because I crave this sinful dessert at least twice a day!!

27 Dresses

I was craving a girls night and last night's Red Robin for dinner and the movie "27 Dresses" was the perfect night out I was looking for. I had been wanting to see it ever since the first previews had come out. It was the classic chick flick and being a big Grey's Anatomy fan, anything with Katherine Heigl was worth going to see. James Marsden wasn't all that bad to look at either ;) Katherine played Jane, who is idealistic, romantic and completely selfless – a perennial bridesmaid whose own happy ending is nowhere in sight.

I found myself relating to Jane in so many ways. Her inability to say NO made me relate to her even more so. I will also admit, that yes...there are times I find myself wanting my own fairytale or my own happy ending, but then again I continue to thrive off of the countless opportunities I have had to learn and grow from my travels and be inspired by the people I meet along the way. I am content with and being who I am NOW and for the moment it works for me. Someday when I learn to say NO, Life will be so very different for me...but until then, I'll keep being Sherry! That being said, is there anything I can I do for YOU?

Last week I decided I had had enough of the cold and decided to head west for some good old Californian Sun!!! I also volunteered to pick up some computers for the Rose Foundation in San Bernardino and my little cousin Bruce...who isn't so little anymore! got married on Saturday and it all worked out perfectly! I got my wonderful cousin Jose to come along and it was good times cruisin down I-15 South making a quick stop in St George to see my parents who were there and then heading straight to the reception. Get excited for some road trip pictures, but for can any road trip to California ever be complete without a stop
at the ever so tasty IN-N-OUT!

Oh how I crave their ever so naughty cheeseburgers and fries! My Uncle Julio treated us after the wedding and even though I was already full with wedding food and cake, I had no problem making room for this deliciously greasy/bad for you meal!!!
Here's to IN-N-OUT!!! can you resist this?? You know you want one. =)

DAVID the GNOME goes to the Caribbean!

Good Old David the Gnome has been with me for about 3 years now and has survived all my travels around the world.  Many of you have had the chance to meet him and those who haven't...I'm sure we'll both be knocking on your door one of these days.  He has climbed the Great Wall of China, played in the sand in Maui and Miami, attended Dallas Cowboys games in both Dallas and Arizona.  He has ridden the busy subways of both New York and Washington D.C., hiked through the jungle of Tikal in Guatemala, and backpacked through Italy and Switzerland!  Here are a few pictures from his latest trip in the beautiful Caribbean.

Snorkeling in St Thomas

Here I am trying out the new underwater digital video camera! What a fun little toy it is and
an even better way to share my experiences! In the video it takes me a minute to figure it
out but eventually I do. Just keep watching. =)

Happy New YEAR!

Kelly flew into town last minute and we (Scott, Stin, Kelly and I) were all invited to a "How to Host a Murder" Dinner. We each were given characters and it was set in a 1920's HOuse of Ill Repute. Stin and I had way to much fun with our wigs and Scott and Kelly both took home the prizes for best costume and best performance of their character. We had about 13 people all in all and it was a very fun way to ring in the new year!

I hope everyone wherever you all may be had a very happy holiday and I am excited to hear about all of your adventures in the coming year!!
