The Buried Life

'The Buried Life' is a new show on tv about a group of friends that are on a mission to complete their list of "100 things to do before you die". Not only are they checking off their list, but for every thing they do on their list, they help someone else do something on theirs. While alot of the things on their list aren't exactly things I want to do...It got me thinking about what I DO want to do before I die....
Dont worry, Its only a list of 20 things so far. (in no particular order)
1. Meet Reese Witherspoon
2. Swim with dolphins
3. Go to Italy..........(i'm checkin this off in March... WOO HOO!)
4. Learn to play guitar
5. Be a mom :)
6. Play with monkeys. (I'm trying to decide if being surrounded by them in Costa Rica counts)
7. Grow my hair out again. (I think it may actually take the rest of my life)
8. Adopt a child
9. Attend a talk show taping (Either Regis & Kelly, Ellen, Or The Doctors)
10. Visit Nauvoo
11. Scuba Dive
12. Be on a game show
13. Pet a white tiger
14. Go to London
15. Dedicate a week to just doing geneology (mom, your my hero)
16. Sky dive
17. Read the whole Book of Mormon, front to back, in a reasonable time period. (I know, its sad, I've started it at least 27 times, and jumped around, but I want/need to read it front to back straight through)
18. Design my own house
19. OWN our own house
20. Go to Korea with Matt
You?

Snow Day!

A couple days ago we went up Mt. Lemon with Justin (Matts brother) & Becky & the kids. I'm so glad we got to play in the snow before it was too late! The dogs love it. The kids kept throwing little snowballs at them and the dogs would search (through all the snow) for that one snowball. Snow days wouldn't be as much fun without kids so i'm glad we got to join them :)
And I got to use my new Flip video camera that Matt got me for Christmas. I love it. EXCEPT... I absolutely cannot stand how I sound on videos. Its so embarrassing. If thats how I sound in real life, I apologize. Its annoying.

Breaks over already?!

I've been a Blog Slacker. Even on my 2 weeks off from school I couldn't seem to find a minute between movies and naps to update. So here it goes...
Christmas was in Winslow this year with the Boyds. To put it in a nutshell-games, soda, movies, rockband, Super Mario Wii, shooting guns, dog heaven, family, presents, good times :)
Matt's new hunting knives. In case he winds up on some magic island and has to hunt wild boar for food. Watch out John Locke. P.S Cant wait for season 6! :S
I always love getting new sweat pants. :) Seriously, I do

Trying out Matt's new gun.
I can't believe its already 2010. But i'm happy about it. Its alot more fun to write than 2009 for some reason. Unfortunately I cant seem to find our New Years Party pictures on my computer. And even though Matt has shown me 1000 x's how to get pics from his fancy shmancy camera onto the computer, I cant ever figure it out. And its unfortunate because it was an 80's party and people went all out. Personally, I realized I'd love to crimp my hair everyday and wear big sweatshirts with leggings. The party was fun :) Happy New Year everyone!
Now its back to work for Matt and back to school for Me. Cant wait for our next break.... ITALY!!! I'm counting down the days and I keep meaning to learn Italian...
