go UTES!

Here are some pic's of us enjoying the Ute game . . . even though we were freezing! Whenever we go to a game I have to get bundled up and I also take along 2 or 3 blankets! I don't handle the cold very well.

I am really excited about these pic's because a couple months ago (really probably 6 months ago) I somehow smashed our memory card ... oops, and somehow failed to mention it to Greg. Once he realized what I had done, he purchased another and these are the first pic's taken with it. Kinda depressing that I didn't do something about it sooner because we missed a lot of good photo opportunities, ex: U2 concert in Vegas!

Mrs. Gunn

I have decided to add one more thing to my schedule. On Mondays I am teaching a 4th grade class for 45 minutes for Junior Achievement. I didn't know what I was signing up for . . .

Yesterday was my first day, and I didn't know what to expect. When the teacher introduced me to the class as Mrs. Gunn, the kids either giggled, gasped and one student was even brave
enough to speak up and tell me "what an awful name you have!". From that moment I knew I had my hands full.

I had to answer the same question about 30 times, try and speak over them to regain their attention. I had students wanting to blow their nose, go to the nurses office for an itch, and constant pencil sharpening. A student even fell over in her chair breaking the scissor holder and scissor flew all over. Of course all the kids had to jump up and run over and swarm her. I left after 45min's with a headache and a complex about my name.

Overall, it was a fun new experience and I am looking forward to my next visit. I have a new found respect for teachers, they deserve a bigger paycheck!

back to school

I know, I know . . . Greg and I are really bad at keeping this blog updated. We have really good excuses though, so let me know if you would like to hear them.

"back to school...back to prove to dad i'm not a my bag packed shoes tied tight...i hope i don't get in a fight...OOO back to school...back to school..."

For all you Billy Madison fans, this is the song that I have been waking up to this week. Greg started law school this week and is really excited. For some odd reason, he really enjoys school and looks forward to each day. I on the other hand, look forward to the day when school will finally be over.

I finished summer semester about a week ago and just started a job with IHC, which I am really excited about. Greg has been doing orientation this week for law school and will officially start school next week. I too will be starting Fall semester next week, finally finishing up my pre-req's for nursing!

Did I mention we are really excited for Utah Football to start . . . GO UTES!

Peregrine Falcons

Check out the links below to see a live video feed of Peregrine Falcons living in downtown SLC. The mom has been sitting on three eggs over the past few weeks and I've been watching hoping to see one hatch, but haven't had any luck. As of this post two of the three eggs have hatched. Pretty cool. Let me know if any of you see the third hatching!!!

This past weekend Greg and I moved me back to Utah. He will follow shortly with the Uhaul and the rest of our belongings. This is a blog about our fun (long) road trip.

This is Greg and I ready and alert for the long trip ahead

We were thinking that this trip was going to be GREAAAT . . .

Some of the beautiful scenery in Arizona

We found a really neat bridge that went over the Colorado River before it empties into the Grand Canyon . . . . These pictures don't do it justice!

This was later in the trip, you can tell we were getting pretty bored

We had plans to stop in Mt. Carmel and spend the night to break the driving time in half. We stopped at our lovely hotel that promised a pool, hot tub, and hi-speed Internet . . . and they delivered none of those things. . .so we packed back up, checked out and continued our drive. We were feeling really good until the last 2 hours of the trip.

This is the sign for the hotel we were suppose to stay the night . . . too bad, we could have tried the "ho-made" pies!

And the decision is . . .

After many days of restless sleep, I have finally decided what color of mixer I am going to get. I want to thank everyone for their input, it really helped my indecisiveness. Kitchenaid should be ashamed of all the colors they offer, making it such a tough decision. I am now a proud owner of the Imperial Grey color Kitchenaid mixer. Thanks for all your help, and happy baking!
