Freakin' Twilight

Fine, I'll admit it. I have in the past been overly critical of movies. I refused for many, many years to see any of the Harry Potter movies, or even the Star Wars Trilogy. I made up my mind that I wouldn't, even couldn't, like these types of movies.

At 8:50 P.M. I entered a St. George movie theater to watch the movie Twilight with Michelle and my family.

I will never get those two hours back... I think that my favorite moment of the movie was also my least favorite moment... Only the ridiculous chatter and sniffles from the fellow movie goers kept me alive... Who cares about vampires.

Operations and Supply Chain Management

I can feel my soul dying.

Operations and Supply Chain Management is possibly the worst part of my week...

Actually it's the worst part of my education for the past 16 years.

It's a three-hour class every Friday. (And if you think there's no motivation to go to class by Friday afternoon, you're right. Only now it's worse). We learn or at least talk about what goes into production, shipping, etc. Except, I learn nothing. NOTHING. NO THING.

And to top it all off, my professor is not a native English speaker. Even if he did teach us something, I wouldn't understand him.

Not even the Supply Chain MAJORS like this class.

Help me. I'm dying here.

Why I Love My Husband

There are many reasons why I love my husband, but right now, just few to share.

1. He works so hard. Between his two jobs and school and callings he always has something going on.

2. He cleaned up the whole house for me so that when I got home from class, I didn’t have to worry about getting things presentable for my visiting teachers.

3. He watches Gilmore Girls with me. He’s spent the last 12 months trying to like it until finally he can stand watching it with me.

4. I can’t cook. I’m great at toast, cereal, and my specialty, grilled cheese sandwiches. But he’s so patient and good to me – even when he’s hungry.

The Other Side of Bob...

It fits him so well. It's a little scary.

A few days before Scott and I got married, my camera was stolen. In all the craziness, I forgot to borrow a camera from someone. So the pictures from our honeymoon came from a disposable camera. They're not great, but I'm glad we have something to document our fantastic trip!

California Adventure!

This speed limit sign was posted near the parks. It seemed to bother Scott for some reason...Seriously, though, why not just 15 mph?

It was WAY too cold to get in the water.

We had a blast. I could use another vacation right now. I'm bored of school and winter.

Six Quirks

So...I've been tagged. I'm new to the tagging world, but this one seemed fairly simple so I'll give it a go.

Scott might say I have a million quirks, but for your sake I'll only list six.

  1. I fidget. A lot. All the time. I hate being still.
  2. I get comfortable in weird positions - one of my favorites is to have one of my legs up on the top of the couch with my head hanging off the front.
  3. Most of the time I need a TV on to fall asleep. Old re-runs of Gilmore Girls work best because I've seen every episode 100 times.
  4. I love sports but I don't like going to games very much. Poor Scott didn't know this until after we got married. He claims I tricked him. He should have realized long ago that I'm perfectly content to be at home at watch it on TV.
  5. I make a lot of jokes, but Scott is the only one who seems to think they're funny. I'm lucky he married me.
  6. Out of habit, I put my seatbelt on immediately after I get in a car...even if I'm just driving to down to my parents' house (three doors down).
