I think I'm in LOVE

Magical Day

For my Birthday this year I decided to be super random. SHOCKER!  =)
Anyways...I recruited my little sister and bought 2 tickets to California.  

Disney is doing a thing this year where you get in for free on your Birthday, so why not?  
Yes....We flew to Disneyland for the day!  We were in California for like 22 hours.  Disney gave me a pin to wear that said Happy Birthday Sherry so everywhere I went, every ride I got on and off, and even during the ride, I was wished a Happy Birthday!  

It was quick.  It was way to much fun.

My cousin Autie and her two kids picked us up at the airport and we went straight there.  It was a blast.   I wish I would have taken more pictures!!!   We were exhausted by the end of the day but made it to BJ's for their sinful Pizookie and just like that, I was 29.  

Wow I'm getting old.  Nothing like a trip to Disneyland to help me pretend that I'm still kinda young.  ;)

Thanks Autie for a wonderful day!!!

Love yoU!

My 2 A's--My cousin Autie and my little sister Ashley.
Max & Ivy
They were so GOOD!
Love them.

Ash and Ivy

Toy Story Fun FUn
This ride was crazy!

Classic Fishy Face
The "Opposites"

NYC Quickie

So I guess I didn't take as many pictures as I thought I had while in NYC this past weekend...but here is one of my favorites.  Sweet little McKay insisted that he take a picture of us and this is the result!

Here's one Noah took....
Here's Lyla eating a delicious burger from the Shake Shack  
If you haven't eaten one of their mouthwatering are seriously missing out!
Next time you are in New York, don't leave without going!!  It is one of the best
burgers I have ever eaten in my life! 

The weekend was perfect.  I didn't want to leave!  The cab driver, who was taking me to the airport to catch my flight home, had to hand me tissues I was so sad.  =(

Thanks for another amazing weekend Eyres

I sure do love you guys.

Dear BJ's

Dear BJ's,

Will you please open a restaurant in Utah so that I can eat your Great White Pizza and Chocolate Chip Pizookies whenever I want?? I'd be so very grateful and I promise I'd make everyone I know come eat with me.


P.S.- Thank you for my Free Birthday Pizookie last night. I was in Heaven. To bad I had to fly all the way to California to get it.

I am so thankful for SO MANY THINGS. In years past on this blog I've tried to focus on all the many things I am grateful for during the month of November. Maybe this will get me blogging again! So today, I am really thankful for
Delta Airlines
who took me to Washington DC last week and who will be taking me
to California on Tuesday and then to NYC on Friday.

Thank you for the Delta Biscoff Cookies that I absolutley love, and for giving me the ENTIRE CAN of Cranapple Juice
and for always upgrading me
to First Class.
I love flying with you Delta =)

(Have you ever tried these?? They are AMAZING!)

Lord of the Rings Marathon

A few weekends ago I watched the entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy-EXTENDED VERSIONS with my little brother and practically little sister Mackenzie. WOW. We started at 2:00 in the afternoon and watched all three back to back, no breaks ending at 2:35 in the morning!! It was intense. Especially watching it with obsessed fans who didn't have to read the subtitles when the characters on screen were speaking elvish!

Smeagol/Gollum drove me absolutely INSANE and I truely believed that HOBBITS were real and had once existed. I'm sure I'll never hear the end from that one.

I can't stop thinking about them.  I dream about them at night.  I wake up craving them in the morning.  I think about them all day long at work.  

What is with this weird craving??  and Pancakes??

I wish my body would crave more Fruits and Veggies!  
It would work SO much better with my Diet.

BYU Hawaii Fun Fun

We used Heather and her little family moving to Virginia as an excuse to get together for some delicious BBQ, swimming and LOTS of catching up! 

 It was so fun to see Kristie Babcock Stephens and her 4 kids!!  They are living in Logan, Utah where her husband Nate is teaching at Utah State University.  

Britney Nichols Aggard is the mother of 2 little boys and they live up in Kaysville, Utah.

MELISSA!  So so fun to see her!  She has 2 sweet little girls and a brand new baby boy.  They live in Utah and Melissa looks exactly the same!!

Heather Holt Ure, John (her hubby) and their 3 kids are moving to Virginia where John has been accepted to George Mason University Law School.  I will miss them!!! But, it's not like I'm not on the East coast several times a year already.  I'll just have one more excuse to go and visit!

For any Seasiders from Hale 5 in '99-'00 who weren't with us...we missed you!  Hopefully one of these days more of us will be able to get together.  

Swimming Pool Fun Fun
Corn on the Cob Cupcakes.  So YUMM!
The Chef--Thanks MOM for the GREAT FOOD!! =)

So when's our next Reunion???

Thanks Ash for the Pictures ;)

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Do you remember the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar??  You know, the one where the caterpillar eats and eats and eats through all sorts of stuff until he gets a stomach ache and then turns into a big, fat Caterpillar??

I was reading this book to my little cousin Millie today and I couldn't help but think of ALL the things I had eaten today...and how much I felt like him.

Gotta love the book's definitely a Classic.

My Brother the Hero

My little brother (not so little anymore) Randal, is a United States Marine currently serving our country in Iraq.  I sure do miss him and pray for his safety every single day.  

He is MY Hero.

I love you Randal.

My Sister the Snake Charmer

I am deathly afraid of snakes...Even just looking at this picture of my sister Lindsay holding a Python gives me the creeps!  Lindsay is currently serving a mission for our 
Church in Belem, Brazil and is constantly running into all sorts
of crazy things!!

I've included, in her words, her run in with the Python. 

"Funny story. Last week we had our district meeting in Abaetetuba, which is a 1 1/2 hour bus ride and when we arrived, the member who lives next to the chapel earlier that week found a python on top of the chapel! He captured it and kept it in a barrell for the fireman to come and take it away. When we arrived the Elders were joking that we would be having snake for lunch. The member pulled the python out of the barell and onto the ground as each of us took pictures. I then asked if I could hold the snake and take a picture. He laughed because not even the Elders, all Brasilian by the way, were courageous enough to hold the snake. But I was serious. So he handed me the snake, I took a picture and then.... the snake peed on me. And hollllly balogne... I stunk big time. Good times.. =p"

My Sister the Photographer

My beautiful and very talented sister Krissy knows how to take good pictures!
She is one of my favorite travel buddies and has captured a lot
of our world wide adventures together HERE

Moscow Pictures

These great pictures are courtesy of my 
ever so talented sister Krissy
who was the photographer on the trip.  I forgot to bring my camera!  

St Basil's Cathedral at night.  
No photoshop...I promise.
It was gorgeous!
The Mall all lit up.
St. Basil's during the day.
We had the opportunity to see the Bolshoi Ballet Company
perform the ballet The Golden Age.  It was amazing.
Christ the Saviour Cathedral
One of my favorite views in the city.  
Sweet Olesya...A new friend and one of the
 sweetest people I've ever met! 
  Here she is making me proud with the classic Fishy Face. 
Another view of the Cathedral.  We happened to be there during
the Russian Easter so while inside this church we saw
many people going in and out having 
their eggs and special sweet bread blessed.
We did a lot of walking these 3 days.  Sometimes I'd stop
to rest and look up and it would hit me again that we
were in Moscow.  So fun!
It would randomly start snowing.  Here we are
outside of Lenin's Tomb.  We saw his ACTUAL body
laying there.  CREEEEEEPY!
Fake Cherry Blossoms inside the GUM Mall

The days went by to fast.  I really want to go back.  Maybe I'll wait until 
the weather warms up though.

Thank you Moscow for a lovely adventure and an unforgettable
experience.  See you again someday.

-I love this city.
-The Metro is so clean, super reliable and BEAUTIFUL.
-In MOscow it snows while the Sun is shining the snow is PRETTY and not COLD.
-Apparantly, Purple is the new black here. Everything from tights to shoes, hats and purses! Purple is everywhere! It's a good thing I brought my purple Puma's, my purple scarf, and my purple blanket!! =)
-What is it about finding a Hard Rock Cafe in a foreign country that makes you feel so at home? Good times and yummy food were had tonight at the HARD ROCK CAFE MOSCOW.
Disclaimer: I always seem to forget how expensive they are though.
- Lenin's actual body displayed for all to see is very creepy. And! Don't get caught with your hands in your pockets while you are in there...the russian guards will yell at you.
- You can put a scarf over your head and blend right'll look just like a little russian old lady.
- Potatos just taste better here.
- Being in Moscow with my sister Krissy is the best. She makes me laugh and the random, crazy adventures we are experiencing together are so much more fun!
- We met a new friend. Her name is Oleyesa and she looks like a little porcelin doll. She has been our tour guide in exchange for a big jar of Peanut Butter.

More pictures and stories to come...just a little sampling of the 2 out of 4 days we will be experiencing in this magnificent city!
