"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!"

Because of our lazy weekend last week, when we both finished Christmas shopping and watching TV, we have decided to have a fun filled weekend this week!
Ben and I got done with work a little early last night and headed down to the Jazz vs Magic game. Dwight Howard plays for the Magic and is one of my favorite players, (after Memo of course:) and we were very excited to see him in action. We hustled downtown after work and were able to get lower bowl tickets! This is the first game we were able to get lower tickets and were very excited to watch the big game. Now I am a Jazz fan, but when there is a great player in town, I get very excited to watch them. Ben thought that the Jazz didn't have any hope to win the game, but the second half really turned around for the Jazz and they were able to pull off a W.
Tonight we are going to lay low, gym and then supper and tomorrow again a full day of basketball. Being a big sports fan, Ben wants to hit up a U of U basketball game as they are playing Oklahoma, and as far as I've heard Oklahoma must be a top ranked team. After this game, we are going straight downtown to get tickets for another Jazz game, against the Laker's tonight! It's always fun going to watch basketball for me, and the Jazz Bear is my favorite!
Along with all the sports excitement for the weekend there is another huge snow storm that is suppose to blow in starting late tonight until Sunday. Now it's unusual to get Ben away from from the TV on football Sunday's, but we might have to make our first trek up to the ski hills with all the new snow. It may be cold, but it's time for the ski season to start!

Trip to ND!!

Ben and I went back home to Lisbon for Thanksgiving this year.
The whole family was together, well everyone but my brother in law. We had amazing food, great family time, we relaxed and not only that, we had a chance to get away!
We flew in on Thanksgiving morning to Fargo, with a quick layover in Minneapolis, we were on the ground by 12:30 pm. Heather came and picked us up, a pit stop at Ryan's place in Horace, and back to L-Town to get ready for supper.
Turkey, stuffing, potatoes and don't forget about
the pre-meal shot we had to take. My dad had a great liquor that we toasted and roasted before we stuffed ourselves full. Since Heather and I are now old married ladies, we helped with the cleaning up so no big after dinner nap for us.
The rest of the weekend was full of coffee dates, little bit of shopping, playing games and laying around.
We did make it out one night and met up with some friends. Nothing crazy but the usual Thanksgiving crowd and shots.
Ben and I left on Sunday evening after we were able to stop for a quick bit to eat with some friends at BWW in Fargo. We had to miss the Vikings game as everyone had to get home to watch it, so Ryan dropped us off at the airport and Ben and I relaxed before our flight.
It was a great weekend. We made it back to SLC before Desperate Housewives started, picked up our puppy we missed so much and then back to work on Monday. The only thing that we didn't get was some snow on the ground in SLC, we are ready to hit the slopes!

We found our old childhood hats!
