So You Think You Can Dance...

I am totally addicted to any TV show that has pretty much anything to do with dance. But my favorite is I got an email that said that tickets went on sale, so I got on and bought tickets on the 21st row!!! I'm sure we could have got better seats, but it was still good seats. Lights went out and the opening number began... I was super excited and started cheering. They performed all of my favorite dances, addiction, battlefield, calle ocho, bank robbers, the necklace, paso doble, and my personal favorite and touching breast cancer routine. Here are a couple of pictures that I happened to get.

All too soon it was time for the last number. I had a great time with the girls! I love these women and the only thing that would have made it better is if my Grams, sweet Cassidy and Aunt Shelly could have made it with us. I know they would have loved watching the performances. Here is who went with me. My mom, Megan, Susie, Christy, Lindsey, Jennifer and Emily. We have to go next year for sure!

Very Interesting Concert

Two of my best friends and I went to a concert on October 30th. I was super pumped and we bought t-shirts before hand so I didn't have to worry about spending an arm and a leg for a shirt or anything else they had for sale. There were two opening bands... and they were uhm... weird! But I wasn't going to let anything stand in my way of having a great time with my friends and listening to The Sounds. While the performance was happening I happened to catch a glance of someone I thought looked familiar. Not like a person I know personally, but someone I had seen before. So I asked my friends if they had seen the guy. They looked close and sure enough, it was Chet from the Real World Brooklyn! He was there in the front row, taking some pictures. We got some far away pics, but we really wanted to go down and get one with him. The place was packed and hard to leave, so we just hoped that we would see him when it was over. Sure enough... HE WAS! And we got a pic with him. He is from Utah originally and we asked him if he traveled with the bands. Turns out he was friends with one of the singers of the opening bands and met up with him in Salt Lake and came to the concert for fun. It was great! I had a good time with my friends and was glad that I got to spend some time with the girls.

I love to see the temple...

About a month ago, I was in the Salt Lake area and I was a little bored. So I thought that I would take a little drive to a place that always seems to bring me to what the meaning of life really is. I sat at the temple grounds for nearly 30 minutes. Watching wedding pictures being taken, engagements happening, people going in for a session, and just looking at the scenery and loving how beautiful the fall is and the temple in the background. I took a few pictures. I was nervous about getting out and walking around because I didn't want to disturb the events taking place. But here are a few of my favorites.
