The Muppets

I was having one of "those" days, so I decided to treat myself!
I convinced my roomies: Cassidy and Corinne, to come with me to the late show. 
We had a real good time.
I liked it!

(sidenote: if you expect this movie to be a movie put on by the muppets (ie: Muppets Treasure Island) it is not such. It is a movie about getting the muppets together)
It was good, it just wasn't what I was expecting. 

But the music does get stuck in your head, and we loved some of the great one liners:

"You gave us the greatest gift!"
"No... the third greatest gift..."
"Oh laughter!"

Update on the facts.

School Spirit

Facebook has been lit up by this article:

Everyone is so upset, and all in an uproar. Here are some of the posts:

This is why i left. BYU-I doesn't believe in free agency. They take it too far.

 the honor code is becoming an overgrown shrub that needs to be trimmed back. Students are speaking out against something they don't agree with, and it's their God-given right to do it. The "skinny jean" debacle is perhaps a tipping point for a lot of people who are growing tired of being treated like children.

 My wife's pants are skinny but not immodest. We have don't have the money to buy her a whole new wardrobe so she can wear MOM PANTS! This is ridiculous. I can't wait to graduate I'm all BYU-ed out now.

Sooo glad I peaced out of that school...I wear skinny jeans like, every day! Unbelievable...

It gets me all heated, and I have made a few drafts on people's posts, but don't think it is the appropriate place, and I don't want to cause drama. So here are my feelings, my thoughts, take them as you will:

For one second can I tell you how much it drives me bonkers that people complain about BYU-Idaho?!? Seriously it gets me so riled up! Especially when it is people who go there! YOU had a choice in what school to go to! Usually when I say that, the response is this was the only school they could afford, or their parents will only pay for school if they go to this one. Well then guess what buddy: 

As for the whole article thing:
I don't think the real problem is skinny jeans: it's people who classify jeggings or leggings as skinny jeans. It's not only the honor code that says that "clothing should not be form fitting." But also the For the Strength of Youth says "immodest clothing includes tight clothing and other revealing attire." 
So if you have a problem with that standard, you have a problem with the church's standard. 

And to all those people who say that BYU-Idaho is taking away their free agency, how is this any different from a private elementary school that wears uniforms?! 
You chose the school and that means you chose it's rules. 
They didn't come to you begging you to come get a great education through them. The school has a standard and if you don't meet it they don't want you there. 

Ok, I'm done. I've got it all out and you won't hear more on the subject. Thanks for your time. xoxo

Don't loose your pen.

No pen = no notes
No notes = no study
No study = failure
Failure = no diploma
No diploma = no money
No money = no food
No food = get skinny
Get skinny = get ugly
Get ugly = no marriage
No marriage = no kids
No kids = no generation
No generation = SUDDEN DEATH. 

(tip: don't loose your pen.) 

From my cute little Rollins girls. My favorite part is the ugly skinny girl. Yep, go eat a burger! By this logic it'll land you a husband!

After 21 years...

For the first time in my life I now fully understand Star Wars. It may have taken a two-hour-in-depth conversation with 2 well versed 11 year olds... But I now know who each character is and how they are connected from the first episodes to the last ones. I could also see the gospel connection. The whole story line pieced together. I can now see the obsession. I actually viewed it firsthand. 
 It was a breakthrough. You should be proud.

Everlasting Love

Last weekend we had an in depth conversation about proposals. My brother's friend is gearing up for the big day, and we were all discussing the "best" way for him to pop the question.

My suggestion was full of roses, and love notes, and ending with him in a tux. 
It was quickly shot down. The people I was with are more on the traditional dinner proposal side. Me? I say go big or go home. 

So when I saw this I couldn't help but share.
Love it!!

(this is kinda a long video, but it's the first few minutes -the proposal- is what I love!)

Weber State Student

Did you hear about the wind storm up in Ogden this week? 
I got 3 phone calls, 3 texts, 2 emails, and so did my mom. 
Weber State University apparently doesn't look at campus location when they send out their high alerts. 
It's true I'm getting my degree through them, but have only been on campus 8 times in the past 2 years. 
But if I was on campus there was a real threat. One student got sent to the hospital.

Look at some of the destruction: 






CRAZY huh! 
It would have been cool to see it in person!
