Wicked Tickets

This is a delayed post. . . but I couldn't post till after Christmas Day because the tickets for Heather were a surprise.

On Thursday the 11th, Bryan and I headed up to Salt Lake City to wait in line for Wicked Tickets. We got there at about 9 pm and waited in line all night long until about 7 am the next morning. We were 2nd and 3rd in line! I couldn't believe we were that close to the front!! I have a very small interview on Fox but quite a bit of camera time.

It was such a fun experience - and it was even better that we could get enough tickets for everyone that wanted them in the family!!

I can not wait for Wicked! Just 4 more months

Incredible Movie!!

We went into this movie having no idea what to expect or even what is was really about. I was extremely pleased. I won't go into details, but I do recommend it very highly!!

Mom's Pearls

I got another good use out of my mom's pearls.

Last night we had Young Women in Excellence and we decided to make the theme: A Night at the Academy Awards. So, everyone dressed up in prom dresses and got all dolled up (I decided to wear a little black dress and pearls). We had each girl pick one thing they've completed in one value and we took a video of each girl explaining what she did. We played the videos of the nominees and then had all nominees walk on the red carpet up to the stage and announced the winner. Of course every girl was a winner and they each got an Oscar. I think everyone really enjoyed it! I love successful young women activities!!

Harry Potter

Bryan and I are one of those odd couples that had never gotten into the Harry Potter books or movies. I watched the first movie and didn't really like it, so I had no desire to see any of the others. But Bryan's always wanted to watch the movies because as he says, "harry potter is so huge and a part of not just our culture, but the worlds, that we probably shouldn't go through life not knowing what the whole thing is about. . . ."

Last weekend all of the movies were on TV. So. . .we watched the second, third and fourth. I have to say that I am a bigger fan after seeing those three movies. I actually was excited when we would start the next movie. I'm not saying that I'll be there opening night in July 2009 for the Half Blood Prince - but I am glad that I have participated in this important part of our culture :)

Time Capsule

I officially had to purchase one of these last night. I thought I could keep all my affairs in order (not like there's a ton) but I realized that I can't!! I'm hoping that now that I own one of these I will be so organized that I'll be afforded more time - we'll see

It was fate!

I regrettably forgot to add one of my addictions to the fabulous blog. . . So You Think You Can Dance!! Tonight for mutual we went to It's a Wonderful Life at Kingsbury Hall - and who was George Bailey - Matt Dorame!!! Matt was seriously one of my favorites from SYTYCD last season - amazing dancer!! I had to ask him for a pic :) I just wish I had my camera instead of my camera phone

Here is Matt's audition video for SYTYCD. Where the magic started!

My new favorite Holiday movie. . . for the week anyway

Bryan and I missed this movie coming out last year, but have wanted to see it. We finally rented it - and I L-O-V-E it!!!! It's kindof a little kid movie (so a little silly at times) but I loved the message. It seriously brought me tons and tons of holiday cheer :) Plus - no movie can go wrong with Vince Vaughn. Anyway, if you're looking for a fun and touch your heart kinda movie - watch this one!
