The Greatest Weekend

I am so excited. This is like the most awesome of awesome weekends in 2017.

Awesomeness cubed

So here goes. Friday morning we are headed to Utah early. We will be staying at my favorite place in Sundance this trip. We can ski in and out of the property and this will be our first stay we get to do that. Makes for a fun day and plenty of hot chocolate breaks lol. Friday night is our annual Christmas Movie with clients and friends. This year the movie is The Last Jedi. I can’t wait to see everyone and to see the Saga continue. I have been telling everyone there is some huge reveal in the movie. It is going to be EPIC!

Saturday we are having an early dinner at Tucanos then the BYU Utah basketball game. Rise and Shout Cougars! Beat the Pukes! Going to enjoy my 4 inches of Cougar Tail and milk at the game and we are going to make some noise! Sunday we will go to our old Ward. Will be nice to see everyone else. I can’t believe 2018 brings two years since we moved. Happiest of days reunited with friends.

Monday we will be skiing as I mentioned. Glad they have enough snow to finally open. Monday night we attend the Forgotten Carol concert at UVU. This is one of our favorite things to do. This is the 11th time but first in a couple of years. It will be a fun evening with friends and family. If you are unfamiliar with Michael McLean’s Forgotten Carols make the time to go see it. If you can’t buy the CD and Book. Uncle John will bring such Joy into your life. Here is a link to The Forgotten Carols.

The other thing I love about this concert is at the end everyone sings Together Forever. It is so powerful and such a way to set the stage for Christmas. Here is the video.

Together Forever

Tuesday we will sleep in, have a big breakfast and then head home. I can’t believe the stars lined up this way for “The Greatest Weekend of the Year.” But they did. Now if BYU wins it will be perfect. Go Cougars!

Catching up

Well it has been a crazy couple of weeks.  September flew by.  I tried to slow down but was wisked away by the whirlwind that life sometimes brings.  A few things, the kids are back in school and all that goes with that.  Convention has come and gone and dōTERRA rocks as always.  We had a great party in Park City for our team and loved the new product.



I also had my first experience with international travel and spent a week in Prague.  Some wonderful training and time with friends.  The Barn is under construction.  It is fun to see it taking shape.  Should be on the roof by early next week. We came down Thursday morning for Homecoming at BYU.  Another hard loss but fun reconnecting with friends, dancing, cheer stuff, Tucanos, climbing to the Y and the 5K this morning.  Tucanos was fun.  Keith sat 20 $1 bills on the table and told the Pineapple guy every time he came by he could take 2.  He kept us in pineapple lol.  I also got to hook up with Shaun again.  That was intense.  Needless to say I was very much into it and very assertive.  I think he missed me.  We took a drive this week through the back country of Southeast Idaho and it is incredible.  Loved the Palisades Reservoir and Caribou National Forest.  We live in a beautiful place.


BYU will rise again.  💙. The Cougarettes performance was awesome.  Did you see Cosmo dance?  FYI I taught him all his moves in case you didn’t know.  My cub has grown up.

Sold Out 

Well we made the trek south to see BYU came Gonzaga.  Gonzaga right now is the numbet 1 ranked team in the country you know!  So it was not just the rivalry game, it was an undefeated huge game with potential for an upset on Groundhog Day.  Plus it was packed.  We barely got a parking place and we were early!  

So here is how the trip and everything went down.  We left on Wednesday late afternoon.  Had Thursday to get some things done.  A friend came by and taught my mother in law and I some cool dōTERRA stuff.  We made some blends and on a very personal note we are grateful for her love and encouragement. Keith spent the day with his parents.  I went and had lunch with Sara.  We hit Tucanos and had a big lunch.  They made sure we got plenty grilled pineapple.  After lunch we stopped at Mr Mac and ordered some more shirts, ties and another set of pants for my missionary.  Love that Mr. Mac ships for me.  We then went to Deseret Book and got some new garments for Keith and I.  I needed to get back so gave Sara a hug and off I went.  Keith offered to take his parents to dinner and they wanted Chuck-a-Rama. I was so full from Tucanos I didn’t have much, just a salad and some jello.  Keith was crazy hungry, so they all ate up.  We got to the game early and Sara and I met up and went to find peeps.  She is quite the social butterfly.  We were back and forth all over the place.  Was fun to see friends and even got down on the floor at one point before the game.  I had 4 inches of Cougar Tail and some Kettle Corn.  I was feeling a sugar high like crazy.  Keith bought like 4 Cougar Tails and was sharing them with all the kids around us.  I think he was Mr. Popular last night.  Keith’s parents left when the game was over and we stayed for awhile chatting with friends then a few of us were hungry so decided on IHOP.  I needed some real food again so ordered eggs, toast and sausage with sides of bacon and ham.  This round Keith wasn’t hungry so he just had hot chocolate.  He and Todd kept stealing my bacon.  I ended up having to order like 3 sides of bacon.  Very bad boys.  We finally got home at a little after 2 am.  We had one final stop this morning after sleeping in.  I wanted Lehi Rollermills muffin and cookie mixes.  I told Keith I was going to get a bunch and not to complain after all the Girl Scout cookies he bought.  It was just like nope, don’t say a word.  He just quietly signed the receipt and I am happy again.  

The game was so fun.  Sara and I tried to get on TV, we danced, we played the air drums, we even held up this ladies cute baby.  Nothing worked that I am aware of.  The Marriott Center was loud, like insanely loud.  The Roc section was all the way to the top.  Most I have ever seen.  BYU got to within 6 with about 2 minutes left.  They just couldn’t close the gap.  The Cougarettes gave us their National Title performance of their Hip Hop routine.  Was awesome as always.  I had so much fun!  

Tucanos Joy

Ok this is one of my secrets but I hope some of you might enjoy it as well.  Ha it might even boost business at Tucanos.  One never knows.  Ok I do swallow.  Cum kind of has its own unique taste.  Not the most flavorable things in the world but OMG the turn on for guys is priceless so it’s worth it.  But there are ways to make it a bit more enjoyable.  My favorite is a trip to Tucanos and having the guys eat lots of pineapple and those fried bananas lol.  Strawberries are a nice addition to.  Almost like preparing a Cum Smoothie for later.  It’s so worth it!  A Tucanos day makes for a very fun 24 hours.  So guys knock down the citrus fruits and remember a dinner at Tucanos leads to unlimited pleasure, at least in my circle of friends.  A bonus…the Brazilian lemonades are an added delight to be enjoyed later in your cum cocktail.  

BYU Day 

We got up crazy early this morning to catch our flight at 6:30 in Boston.  Direct flight to Salt Lake.  Arrived at 10:18. Keith parents had dropped our Tahoe off at the Airport last night so retrieved that and headed to the BYU Football game.  Made it with time to spare.  First half I was thinking did they forget their was a game but no fear.  Half time adjustments and they won big 51-9.  Exciting second half.  Over 200 yards of rushing yards!  I was so excited to see our kids.  Love reunions at BYU games lol ❤️.  We went with friends to Tucanos after the game.  I so want Tucanos in Idaho Falls.  Like really bad.  Had a good conversation about it with the manager tonight.  He agreed that I needed one in Idaho Falls.  We came up with a list why and he said he would relay it along to the owners.  Oh and I had sooooo much grilled pineapple.  Delicious to the taste….very desirable.  It’s becoming a tradition for us.  When in Utah County we eat at Tucanos.  They would do so well in Idaho Falls.  After dinner went to the Marriott Center for the basketball game.  Sara and I visited with some of the girls on the squad.  Big day for them with both a football and basketball game.  They split up to cover.  They started with only 7 of them and the Cougarettes didn’t perform tonight at the basketball game.  By the second half they had 12.  They get to do it again next Saturday.  I don’t think I’ll get to go next week.  Too many family members that will be here for Thanksgiving that don’t get to attend often and only 8 tickets.  It will be fun though.  BYU vs Utah State for football and BYU vs UVU for basketball.  Great rivalry games.  At least not going I don’t have to make the long drive from Bear Lake lol.  Trying to find that silver lining.  It was a good day 😇. Excited for tomorrow to see old friends at church.
