Blue Light Special

Well we went to Flagstaff on Saturday and Sunday it was a blast. We were so stoked to have a little weekend get away, thanks to Tim, the CEO at Performance Software, we didn't have to pay for our room which was awesome.

On Saturday night we met up for the cocktail hour before our dinner, they gave out awards and Chris got an award "The Blue Light Special 2008" they gave him an engraved thumb drive, it was hilarious, go Chris, way to be a good intern and cheap labor for them! After the awards they had a raffle and are table was so lucky, we all won something, it was super fun. We got a nice performance software jacket.

On Saturday we woke up to 6 inches of snow and it was beautiful, since we didn't want to rush back home in the snowy weather we decided to check out Sunset Crater and Wupatki Pueblo ruins it was so fun. When we went to the visiting center their was this family there and they were Danish I heard them speaking and I just had to talk to them, so I was a bit nervous but I went over and tried to spark up a conversation, I told them I lived in DK and heard them speaking Danish and I had to come over and talk to them, I guess I forgot that Danes can sometimes be more closed and reserved than Americans and The converstation was extremely short and I was so embarrassed because they weren't very friendly. But hey at least I got to speak Danish for like two seconds and I got a small reminder of what it felt like sometimes as a missionary there, trying to talk to people on the street. Anyway after my brief encounter with the Danes we were on our way to check out the National Park. We had a blast visiting the ruins and the volcano, it was a great weekend!

Life or something like it

Life has been so busy the last couple of weeks, Chris is counting down the days for the semester to be over...if you're asking yourself, "didn't the semester just start?", the answer is yes, yes it did. But I can't blame is a drag. I have been busy with projects at work and also from Church, I don't think I am alone when I say that there are just not enough hours in the day. These days there is always something that has to be put on the back burner, today it was my hair...I look like I just got back from the gym, I hate when I don't have time to get ready, but at least the dishes are done. Tomorrow we will be going to Flagstaff for a retreat put on by the CEO of Performance Software, Chris' employer, It will be fun we're staying overnight at a hotel and we get a free dinner out of it so we can't complain. Chris is pretty excited to have me meet all of his work buddies, and I will finally be able to put faces to the names I hear all the time.

Our new obsession is Lost, but honestly, can you blame us? It's such a fun show to watch and we are kind of dorks about it...well Chris is...haha, he comes home some days telling me all of this deep stuff that he read online about the plot and I eat it up. I just am so glad that Jin's alive...Chris had told me that he didn't die and I was so glad that it was true and it's so crazy that he is with Russo, when she first came to the island OMG it's some crazy stuff! It's so sad that I just wrote a paragraph about a TV show, but I am not going to lie I love it. I even requested that our enrichment committee meetings were moved from Wednesday night to Tuesday night so I wouldn't miss Lost, pathetic, I know. Anyway now that I have revealed a another dorky side of me it's time for me to go.
