Utah + family = A good time (who knew?)

I'm totally lame. I took 2 pictures the entire 48 hours I was there. Thankfully there were other cameras there and it looks like slowly those pictures are making their way into the blogosphere. Here's one of the pictures I took (and it's a good one, I think):

It's Andi!

I realized while I was in Utah that I didn't know a lot of my cousins. I don't think that I ever really did (I'm not blaming the lack of knowledge on living in 2 different states, though I know it didn't help), looking back there always seemed to be some sort of separation between me them even when I lived in Utah. I came home to Arizona really happy to have gotten to know them for the first time. I realize that this whole blurb is kind of corny, but I am very grateful that I was able to spend so much time with so much family (considering it was a short trip). I am sorry there weren't more of us there to share in the fun, you were missed. :)

I also got to have lunch with my friend Lauren while I was there. Can I say that the best thing about Lauren and I's friendship (and the same with Lorraine) is that it doesn't matter how much time has passed, we can pick up where we left off. :) I have truly missed both of these girls the last 9 years, I'm glad I was able to catch up, even if it was really short. I'll be back, I promise!

Fall Intersession :)

I have fourteen days off, that's two weeks. Yay! I think I'd be a little more excited if I wasn't sick. Seriously, I have the nastiest cold I've had in a long time. Boo! Anyways, you all know I lead an exciting life, so I thought I'd share my goals/plans for this break. Here goes:

1.) Read 8 books. Doable, right? That's less than one a day a piece. I actually have a bet going with Abbey that I can finish a series of 14 before her. I'm on 7 and she's on 11. Looks like I need to start focusing (in all fairness, she did just have a week off which is why she is ahead of me to start with).

2.) Survive Las Vegas. Also, doable. I just have to heal first.

3.) Learn my new Group Active choreography.

That's kind of it. Don't be jealous.

Happy Birthday Audrey! Yee haw!

It's Aud's birthday! I absolutely love this girl for many reasons I won't begin to place on my blog. I will say that everyone should be so lucky as to have an Audrey in their life.
Lisa and I were kind enough to ambush dear Audrey at Texas Roadhouse last Monday night (6 days before her birthday, she never saw it coming). She was a tremendous sport and hopped on the saddle. I love you Audrey!

Yeah, Katie's life? Not so interesting.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted, but I promise there is nothing interesting going on. Honest and truly. So, I've decided that in order to appease my fans (ha ha ha, fans...) I'm going to do a completely random post (as random is what I do best, heheheh).

So I have a total crush on an AFL player (Arena Football Leage). I'm not going to mention his name or what team he plays on (if you talk much to me during the season you know the answer to both of these questions) as I know his sister-in-law has a blog, and if I can find her than she can find me. Anyways, he's phenomenally hot; like, really, really, ridiculously good looking. My baby sister has mad hook-ups at United Airways Arena and got tickets to an AFL game this summer (box tickets, which are totally overrated, by-the-way), so we grabbed some friends and went. If you've never been to an AFL game you are seriously missing out, the weirdos come out of the woodwork for these. Case-in-point:

You can't see it well, it's a shame I have a crappy camera phone, but this man is wearing a popcorn bucket as a hat, for the entire game. $20 on popcorn is just too much, but if I use the bucket as a hat...

Random picture number two, guess who?

Yeah, that's Brian Urlacher. As in linebacker for the Chicago Bears, number 54. I don't feel right saying how I know him, but after seeing him numerous times over the last few years, I finally asked for a picture. Here's how our conversation went:
Me: Would you mind taking a picture with me?
54: No problem
Me: My sister and stepdad are such big fans.
54: You're not a fan?
Me: Uh, well, uh, well (face turning red), yeah, of course.
I have decided after examining this picture that I need to find myself a linebacker to marry. Do you see how little I look standing next to him? I was 10-15 pounds heavier then than I am now, too. He's massive.

Coming soon:
Parent-Teacher, probably have some bloggable moments
Utah visit, oh yeah, I'll have some stories
Vegas, well, maybe I won't talk about that too much. What happens in Vegas...
