Week Off

Keith turned 46 on Thursday. They say the key to longevity is to have many birthdays. So we choose to celebrate them all week.

Monday we took a day trip to Sun Valley, Idaho. This was our first trip there and I loved it. Took a drive up to a ranch in Sawtooth National Forest. After enjoyed lunch at the Pioneer Saloon on Main Street. Spent the afternoon playing tourist and getting a feel for the place. Definitely coming back for skiing this Winter. Even made reservations.

Pioneer Saloon in Ketchum. I loved this place. Historic Main Street and unbelievable food. If you haven’t been here this is the place to go!

Tuesday after the kids left for school we had sex and more sex. Played some racquetball, went to lunch and our youngest son had a flag football game.

Wednesday was our second day trip of the week. This time we ventured North to Big Sky, Montana. Another first experience for us. Montana is a place we are quickly falling in love with. We visited a property close to Lone Peak. The views were breathtaking.

Another discovery of a great place to eat that I’ll share with you is Lone Peak Brewery. We aren’t drinkers but holy wow the food was good. A bit slow this time of year but they took great care of us.

Big Sky Resort is another gem. I can’t wait to make it back for skiing. Reservations made and another afternoon of playing tourist. A lot of places closed still but I hear Winter comes fast in Montana. Home is less than three hours from Big Sky.

Thursday started at the Idaho Falls Temple followed by lunch at Costa Vida. We had planned to go see the new movie Ad Astra but the afternoon got away from us. Keith had some Bishopric duties and I had YW. Us girls had a fun night of indoor rock climbing, Scotcharoos and milk for dessert.

Friday was the day of the Party. Our best friends and their families came up from Utah and our kids made it up in time for dinner. Invited some of our closest friends as well. Had dinner catered and enjoyed a feast of ribs, wings, corn on the cob, rolls and funeral potatoes. He asked for cupcakes for dessert. A bit hard to put 46 candles on cupcakes so he got a cake too! The guys played video games in the arcade for awhile then watched the last of the ASU vs Cal game. It was a fun night with a lot of laughing and teasing him.

Saturday another big breakfast but not till 9. The kids were up super late playing video games I heard. Watched a miserable BYU loss after breakfast and then enjoyed some spa time with Mandy and Sara. It was time well spent. End of day included Suicide Squad and rootbeer floats.

Sunday was the end of the celebration. I really enjoyed having them and the kids home for Keith’s birthday. It is always hard seeing everyone off. They left today after an early dinner. I will end this long post with this. Halloween is coming and it’s going to be awesome!

Washington at BYU

After coming off the exciting overtime wins the past couple of weeks there was some hope that maybe BYU could pull off another exciting win in Provo. Unfortunately the Mr. Hyde version of BYU Football showed up. It was ugly. Turnovers, penalties and mistakes in all three phases of of the game. Washington is a very good team and a rough day for our guys. I am excited though by the positives I see with this year’s team. There are great lessons even in a loss. Go Cougars!

This week the boys each got to invite a friend for our trip to Provo. They were excited all week and definitely ready for the trip to start. Left around 4 pm Friday and made really good time. Stopped at Wing Nutz in Orem for takeout and headed to the Condo for a night of football with both Boise State and Utah playing. Our son and daughter at BYU both came by with some friends to say hello and have some chicken wings. Boys played video games late into the night.

Saturday morning after a run, prep for Game Day Brunch began. Waffles, bacon, sausage, grape, pineapple & orange juices plus fruit salad. Had a pretty big crowd of friends and family. Headed to the stadium after.

I love the improvements at LES. Spent a lot of time in the Southwest corner of the stadium getting pics in front of the oval Y and chatting with friends. It was fun to see the Cougarettes before and during the game. Always an epic performance.

Yesterday was really fun with perfect weather and the whole throwback theme. The game was a whiteout game but I am maybe a bit too rebellious. I went in my royal blue. Keith said I’m a dork. I just laughed.

After the game we waited out the traffic for about an hour, grabbed our stuff and headed up the 15. Grateful for these days. Win or lose seeing the kids. family and friends is priceless.

Together

This year’s dōTERRA Convention was the best yet! A full week for many of us and much love to dōTERRA for giving us such a gift of learning and opportunity. Not sure there was a bad moment in those three days. Bought two Convention kits. One for me and one to split up as giveaways. I think announcing winners from those not in attendance was the best. Many had followed our daily broadcasts and participated in the challenges. Our winners were so excited to get new products early. Grateful that those coming from the East Coast were safe from the hurricane and that didn’t become an issue.

The team party was incredible! The Game Day theme made for a fun night and our VIP Cosmo was a huge hit with the crowd. There was catered finger foods and desserts plus Karaoke, dancing, giveaways and at the end of the night the Big Splash for the daring. Not often you jump into the pool in your clothes. Glad the Resort had lots of towels for us.

The love and service I witnessed from so many inspires me. We truly cannot so this alone. Together is our culture and story. Can’t believe The week has come and gone, certainly the lessons and relationships will last forever. Moments!

Last Night

Okay first off BYU defeats 24th ranked USC. It was an awesome game. Insanely hot at 85 and had a bit of everything. The Cougarettes performance at the end of the first quarter is always epic. Three interceptions on the USC quarterback, the last in overtime for the win. Cougar Tails, need I say more? The fans rushing the field after the interception. I guess no one was really expecting the win and when it happened, the way it happened, it was an outburst of emotion for us all.

Insane game and the beginning of a really crazy night. Keith and I planned to leave after dinner with friends, but with the win, decided to stay in Provo. Took everyone awhile to exit the stadium after a prolonged celebration. Eventually we made our way to Tepanyaki for dinner up by University Place. One of our big things is the catching of the shrimp in your mouth. Good times and great food!

After dinner we had a private party. I will share this. There were three bedrooms, four men, five women, 20 minutes per round. It was a very wet and erotic evening. I think I had 8 orgasms by the time we ended around 1 in the morning. I also got all 4 cocks. After the past few weeks I really needed to let loose a bit. Nothing like a crazy win to get you excited.

Best. Post. Game. Ever!

Go Cougars!

We. Are. BYU!

Well all the men and boys in the family trekked to Knoxville, Tennessee for the BYU vs. Tennessee football game. Ten of them all expecting a fun time but not the miracle or impossible. I quote Keith “If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes I wouldn’t believe it.” I was in Park City watching the game with friends and I still can’t believe it. There was screaming and a FaceTime call from Keith and they were screaming. Insanity or Joy. Not sure, but it was awesome. The future only knows what the season will bring, but for this weekend Cougar Nation is enjoying a little pride. Heads up, eye contact and Hope. Definitely nice after the pain of week 1.

I am glad the boys had a great experience. They stayed at the Tennessean Hotel, visited Old City and Market Square. The city of Knoxville and the Tennessee fans were gracious and wonderful hosts. I am glad we won, but I understand the heartbreak. I wish them a successful rest of season.

Here are some pics from their fun. Neyland Stadium is huge and they kept saying it was so loud. Over 10,000 Cougar fans attended the game.

One of Keith’s friends was on the opposite end of the stadium and took this before pic during the game and a post pic after the game. You can see Cougar Nation in the corner celebrating. I think I see the boys!!! 😂

Plus my favorite pic of the night. Singing the Fight song and celebrating with the fans.

This is college football. This is why we play, travel, cheer. As is our tradition, if we travel to a game Keith always buys a tee from the other team and brings it home. Can’t wait to get it for the Wall.

As for me. A busy week preparing for Convention. I had a quiet night at home Friday evening. Listened to music and relaxed. Didn’t even realize there was a Boise State game Friday night lol. I’m not much of an Idahoan I guess. I feel some shame…not really 😂.

A few of us left for Utah after lunch Saturday and arrived in Park City in time to unload and order some food for the game. Watched it with close friends, dressed in navy and white and even cheered with my best friends. Lots of laughing and a bit crazy ourselves. It was a blast watching on a very large screen. DōTERRA Convention is next week and looking forward to seeing so many friends.
