Fine, Seth ...

At Seth L. Marek's request, I am talking less and putting up more photos. I guess I will document what I've been up to for the past little while (for those I haven't been in contact with) through photographs ... Warning: I rarely do anything in moderation:

Yes. I still run. That seems to be the one question most people ask me. Instead of asking, "How are you doing?" They ask, "Are you still running?" ... And, yes. I am still obsessed with USU athletics. I put up that photo of Jaycee Carroll to show you that his muscles have muscles!


I actually moved to Provo for six whole months! While I didn't enjoy living in Provo, I absolutely loved the people .... Here are just some of the people dear to my heart who live in Provo.


Even though I quit Provo, I still visit there a lot {a lot!}. My most recent trip was actually to campaign for the BYUSA elections {yeah, I still can't believe I did that} ... While going door-to-door, one kid said he wouldn't vote for the candidates I was campaigning for unless I played with his snake ... Also while going door-to-door, I emptied peoples' trash. This garbage bag was literally only an inch off the ground. Stinkin' huge garbage sack! Sigh. The things I do for those boys ...

This is particularly for Seth and Mel: I also have found myself in NEW MEXICO a lot the past several months! While there I ride horses, shoot guns, go four-wheeling, and also: visit the Albuquerque Temple. :)

And, I might return in May, so maybe we can be friends while there! :)


What else? ... For the past four summers I have been involved with EFY. This past summer, I coordinated with Troy Aaron Smith and had the most amazing team ever. And yes, all the gals on the team did buy matching dresses one day. What was even better: a little participant at EFY happened to be wearing that same dress that same day ... she was so embarrassed.

On accident, while just trying to be a good and supportive friend, I got involved in politics ... It all started with a little Mitt Romney rally in Salt Lake and led up to traveling 22 hours on a bus {that was going 10 mph on the freeway at one point} to Sioux City, Iowa for the Iowa Caucus. We were there for about a week, making a bizillion phone calls, knocking on doors, making signs and then holding them up in -4* temperatures on street corners. I still cannot believe how many political debates I watched nor how long I would watch poll results come in ...



Still making the Disneyland trip about 1.78 times per year and loving it. A couple months ago we took my nephews for the first time. They thought we were going to Salt Lake to play until we got to the airport and then told them we were going to Disneyland!


And, just so you won't be disappointed, I am still doing randomly strange things, which include but definitely are not limited to: jumping into lakes in the middle of the night; having a nasty on-going hot dog eating competition; creating new ways to become a True Aggie; playing in random caves with glow sticks; learning where the tunnels underneath USU's campus really go; blowing up over 500 balloons for a friend's birthday; and jumping out of a plane, 13,000 above ground! {That puts all rides at Disneyland to shame ... except maybe Teacups.}

There, Seth. I'm done. I actually want to thank you for giving me a reason to get Lionel Richie's photo further down on the blog. Having his photo greet me when I came to my blog was kinda creeping me out. :)

Oh and we lived in albuquerque last the summer before last. We lived right by the temple. Oh and sorry about last weekend. I didn't check my blog until today. But yes i am coaching the distance runners at viewmont. It is really fun, I didn't make it to the usu meet did you, and if you were at the logan meet I am really sad that I didn't see you.
