I just had to share this with everyone. Here's the backround story of what happened here. This is a talk show. The interviewer was interviewing victims of medical surgeries gone wrong. Normally, before they air, they have a little rehearsal. This time...they didn't.... The man being interviewed had his tonsils taken out and they ruined his vocal chords in the process. Seeing how that's not the funny part. Just think of a time when you were laughing uncontrollably and nothing could stop you. I've been there many times. This is probably my all time favorite, I laugh harder and harder, every time I see it. Not for the man's misfortunes but just because I know what it's like not being able to stop laughing no matter what situation I'm in. Needless to say, the show was kicked off the air, permanently. Enjoy! (get tissues to wipe the tears of laughter!)

San Francisco

I was able to go to San Francisco with Kristin, Dustin and Chad. We went down to visit Jessica and to see San Fran. We had a blast. A couple bumps along the road but it was still fun. We headed down Friday night, it was a little bit of a rough drive. We hit a snow storm in Truckee California so we had to buy chains. Well, later on the freeway was closed so we had to pull off. Where we then noticed that we only had chains one tire... Once the freeway opened, we started to get on, but they wouldn't let us until we had chains on both tires. So we had to buy more. Dang it!! We finally made it to Jess' after 12 hours of driving... man.... But it was fun! The next morning, we woke up and Jess made us breakfast. After getting ready for the day, we headed to the Hess Winery. It was pretty cool to see, even though the museum part was a little scary! haha That night was Valentine's so Jess made us a delicious dinner! Thanks Jess! The next day, we headed to San Fran down to the Wharf to see the Seals, and we saw Alcatraz from a distance. It was pooring rain, so we got umbrellas, it was pretty fun though. We went to Ghiradelli Square for a yummy Banana Split, then took the Trolley to China Town, well....Almost....The trolley broke down right before China Town haha. The next day it was beautiful! We went to San Fran again, we went on a Bike ride in Golden Gate Park to the Japanese Tea Gardens awesome! When we got back to the car, it had been beatin in, like someone body slammed the roof of the car. It totally sucks and I feel way bad about it happening. We then headed over to the house in Full House. It's really called the "Painted Ladies". Beautiful, then over to Coit Tower which overlooks the whole city. That night we ate at the Cheesecake Factory. The next morning, we left to come home. That drive took 14 hours. We got stopped for an hour on the freeway and then it was snowing horribly bad. Wow... We did have a ton of fun though, as the pictures will show you!! Hope you enjoyed my novel and my pictures!

Draper Temple

These next couple posts are to update a little. I was able to go to the Draper Temple open house on Feb. 10th. The Temple was beautiful! And I was able to go with my sister, Melissa, and her family. We had a lot of fun and it was really neat to see. It's beautiful!! But then again, would you expect anything less!?! I love Temples and everything about them. I just can't wait for the Oquirrh Mountain Temple to be finished to tour through that as well since it's so close to my house. Yay!

Alright everyone, I'm here to let you know, that I finally went Snow Skiing for my very first time EVER!! It was actually quite fun we went to Park City! Christy and I attempted to Snowboard but we had no idea what we were doing and didn't have snowboarders there to teach us, so we switched in our boards for skis. It was a lot of fun!! I was surprised I like it so much. But I wouldn't have been able to do it without Stan, he's a great teacher. I went down the bunny hill a few times :-D I actually prefer the bunny hill... But I attempted the great monster!! The actual mountain. I did all right for my first time, that's what they told me anyway haha. It was a little overwhelming and it took me quite a while to make it to the bottom. I did crash once! haha, everyone there would tell ya that it was pretty funny..... I was turning a corner and it was a little icey so I couldn't stop for the life of me. I was going too fast so Stan couldn't stop me, and straight ahead was a huge drop off into the trees.... That didn't look too appealing to me to crash into. So with my greatest effort, I turned to my right up a little hill on the side, I went flying up then landed and rolled, haha. I didn't get hurt one bit, which was quite amazing to me, but what a fall. The bystanders (friends) haha started laughing and said watching me crash made their day, they said just a puff of snow went flying when I landed and I looked graceful... Man, I would have to agree with them that it was pretty funny, I was sure laughing even though shooken up and scared the rest of the day to ski! But it was worth it, it really was a lot of fun. Here are a few pictures to share!
