I am not pregnant....

but I did just devour half a bag of Chips Ahoy Chewy chocolate Chip Cookies. Now before you go any further I must explain. I am a very strict organic eater. Maybe not "organic" in the definition we are used to hearing, but organic in the sense that I don't count calories, I simply listen to my body to know what and how much to eat. So you can imagine my shock when my peaceful relaxing during the boys' nap time was interrupted by a demand for Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies. I was like "Hold up, now you know I don't need dessert yet. It's only 2 o'clock." But the demands persisted and first thing I did when the boys woke up was go to the grocery store to obey my body. The demand was somehow confirmed in my mind when the cookies were on sale for $1.77. To prevent further emergency runs to Vons, I bought 4 packs. (Only to be disappointed when at the check out stand one rung up for $4.29 and I didn't notice til after the fact and didn't have the courage to tell them I did not want the expensive bag.) Anyways, I took the boys to the pool where I thought I would enjoy probably 3 cookies. That's about my normal portion size. But oh no, not today. Like I said, I am a servant to my body- and it wanted more. And more. And more. And was not satisfied til half the bag was gone. All in one sitting. What can a girl do? Obey.

Now b/c a "post isn't complete without a picture", a little more....

Guess where we were this past week?

That is right... Utah for the opening BYU game. (an extra feature "Can you find Sam Hickox?")

The boys and I went up early to visit Josh's family and then Yosh joined us in time for more hanging out and of course, the highlight- The BYU game. I think I ate out every lunch or dinner, which is a highlight for me. Nancy took me to Rumbi's, which I've been dying to try, along with other Utah staples. (Yes, I like being spoiled.) We also got to see Hailey's new house (pictured below are the kids on the newest toy- Devree's bunk bed.) We headed up to Midway to relax there and took advantage and went to Park City for the Alpine slides. The 2 year olds were insistent that we repeat the experience so, for $15 a pop, we did. Who knew Park City was such an in-demand place that they can charge so much for the slides. Anyways, it was a good time. Porter obviously got a lot of camera time this trip so here is his cute face!

Okay, so I think Porter looks just like Yosh. don't you think? So jealous you got to go to the game! Matt and I were listening to it on the internet. We CAN'T even get it on cable...for any amount of money...because of the stupid "Mountain" network or whatever the crap weird thing they've got going on.

Rock those cookies girl! Feed the beast.

So fun! Looks like the BYU opener was a blast. And, the Alpine slides, we've never done, but want too, so fun! Ahh, I LOVE BYU during this time of year. The excitement of school starting, BYU games and warm weather still, perfect.
We can't wait until you're here. One more day, can you believe it? We are SO excited to hit a Mariner game and BYU game, all in one weekend. Too bad, we won't see the Seahawks. That would give you and official Seattle weekend. :) C-ya tmrw.

So, I'm not saying that I blame you for this, however, thanks to your info about Direct TV carrying the BYU games, we are now the proud customers of Direct TV and are paying $80/month to get the BYU games verses the $40 we paid to have the Dish. That being said, I'm excited to finally be upgrading to HD. We've had an HD television for a while, but we've never paid for the programming so I hope it's worth it. Anywho, I guess it's not your fault, I'm the one who told Matt. But I kid you not, it took about 24 hours from the time I told him to the time he was telling me the Direct TV guy was coming over. We bleed blue too!
