Shout Out To Greg . . .

. . . the BYU student who saved me on the freeway Saturday night!


First of all Saturday night was splendid! I was treated to a wonderful evening of fine dining and entertainment by my friend Jon. We went to Ballet West's production of Madame Butterfly. Talk about an amazing dance interpretation of that story! It was gorgeous!
My friend lives in Draper so I met him there and we drove to SLC together. That, of course, meant I had to drive back from Draper.

Hmm, as luck would have it, I got a flat tire. Now, I'm a pretty well rounded girl. I'm all about being prepared. I know how to change a tire, but let's be honest, I AM NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO GET THE BOLTS OFF! Stupid fancy tires that need a special key! Well Greg, came to my rescue. He used to work in a tire store so he had that thing changed in five minutes. I was SO SO SO grateful! Now, I just have to go buy a new tire! That's ok, I needed to go in to check my alignment anyway!

WAY TO GO GREG!

I had this genius idea

That I could come up with a themed blog that would catch everones attention and make me famous. It was to be called, " . . . for a day" and I was going to write about all of these amazing things that I was going to be or that were going on, for a day. I wrote one blog, then got bored. :) Therefore, the happiness of that blog I have decided to share with you below.

McDonald's Offers Free Happy Meals . . .
Have you ever seen that show, Supersize Me? I was going to watch it one-time. I had tickets and everything, but the day before I went to the theatre McDonald's announced that in two days they were offering free Happy Meals for an entire 24 hours. I knew the premise of the movie and I knew that if I watched it the day before I was to gorge myself on delicious hamburgers, chicken nuggetts, and french fries that I would forgo the opportunity for all the free fat I could handle. So, I gave up my tickets (I threw them in the trash) and anxiously awaited the first hour of Happy Meal Heaven. I entered the blissful fast food place and ordered a hamburger, cheeseburger, and two chicken nugget Happy Meals. Much to my dismay the cashier pointed to the sign on the wall that read, "Only one per customer, please." I was near tears when a stroke of genius came to me! I calmly asked for the cheeseburger Happy Meal with fries and root beer. I walked to an empty table, sat down, and enjoyed the lovely meal. I was happy, and that joy didn't leave as I drove to my house and pulled out my Halloween costume collection. What wig would I put on first?Brittany Spears? Hmm . . . Could I get away with that disguise? Oh, you had better believe it! I strutted into the golden arches like I owned the place, but I guess I didn't really look like Brittany because noboby even turned their head. Simple enough, I got Happy Meal number two, ate it to my hearts delight and strutted right back out. As I was getting in my car, however, this guy started chasing after me. I thought, "Yes! Somebody does recognize me!" He said, "Ma'am, you dropped your wallet, here you go." Doh! Well, at least I got my Happy Meal.I went back as Hannah Montana, Justin Timberlake, Denzel Washington, Donald Trump, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts. I really don't do look alikes well because nobody recognized who I was supposed to be, but I didn't care because nobody recognized me as the same girl who had been there hour after hour.It was the final hour of the day, one costume left, one last Happy Meal to enjoy. Steve Buscemi, it was the only option other than Barney the Dinosaur and Rainbow Bright. You know Steve Buscemi, right? He's the supporting actor guy from Armageddon, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, etc. Yeah, well I didn't think anyone would recognize me as him either. Boy, was I wrong! I wasn't even out of my car before people started flocking to me for my autograph! Really? I'm a girl dressed as a famous guy who you might recognize if you see, but do any of you really know him by name? I just ducked and ran into McDonald's. (I wasn't comfortable signing autographs for someone else) So, I enter the glorious burger joint and the line dissolves. I guess being famous means I get to go first. The cashier says, "What do you want? It's on the house!" WHAT!!! I told 'em I just came for the free Happy Meal, but they insisted, so I said, "I'll take one of everything." I started eating, and that is how I spent my last night on this lovely place called earth.

Now that it is February . . .

. . . I suppose I should blog about my Christmas.

I took a little trip with mom and dad down to San Antonio to spend Christmas with my brother's family. Let me just say, they have adorable children! We spent a lot of time doing fun things because the weather there was so warm. We went to the Alamo and the zoo, and got some great pics with the kids.



I also got a really good video of C.A. with a billy goat at the zoo.

It was fun to watch them open presents.



My other brother's family was in town just before we left for Texas so I got to see the new baby and the other darling children. Love them! Love my family!!!
