Amazingness of Things.

This blogs title and topic was brought to you buy my lovely and wonderful sister-in-law Tiffany. :)

Now 'things' are indeed amazing - especially if you actually sit down and THINK about them. Such things as: plastic, words, why we think certain 'things' are funny (for example this picture:

which p.s. if I ever find this guy I'll make him my boyfriend haha), hair (see picture above), computers, clouds, wind, airplanes (seriously, if you sit down and think about airplanes, you will soon be thinking about their amazingness), magic tricks (especially criss angel - have yourself a look:

freaky huh!?), toilet paper (really people, think about it), books, TV's, DVR, some peoples athletic abilities:

(I really wish I could do that), water, rain, keyboards, iPod's, the ecosystem, some people's ventriloquist abilities:

(yes this was just another excuse to put some Jeff Dunham up), paper, the wheel, cars, laughter, peoples talking abilities, movies, Chinese finger traps, cell phones, and even peoples ability to be amazingly stupid:

There really is a lot of things in this crazy world of ours that are simply amazing. I suggest you all take a few mins and contemplate them as I just have today. :) I hope you all have an amazing weekend! :)

P.S. If you get bored and are a Twilight fan, go look at Stephanie Meyer's website and read the August 28th post - you might find some interesting news about Midnight Sun.

This website is a place where people post stories of things that have happened to them that proves that customers are not always right. Here is an Example of what you will find.

(I work in healthcare and am talking to a man in his fifties who is having angina for the first time.)

Me: “You haven’t had a heart attack, but this pain is probably coming from your heart.”

Man: “But I’m only 50-something and there are no heart problems in my family. Why would that be?”

Me: “You smoke 30 a day and drink 2 cartons beer a week. That’s not good for your heart. You should think about cutting down.”

Man: ”I’m sick of you people telling me that bulls***! It’s a scientifically proven fact that smoking makes your arteries smaller, and drinking makes them bigger! If I keep drinking AND smoking, I’ll be fine!”

Me: ”That’s not at all how it works, but I see I’m not going to change your mind. You’ll be going upstairs soon.”

Man: “I want to go out for a smoke!”

Me: “That’s really not a good idea…”

Man: “What would you know?!”

Me: *gives up*

Eight: The Office (Coming back September! Yay! )

Ninth: Strongbad E-Mails.

Tenth: Demetri Martin.

So there you go! Hope you enjoyed them! I know I did while putting them on this blog! :)

Keep laughing.

p.s. This blog was brought to you by Katie's boredom at work.


Crossfit 801

So this past Saturday I was able to go try a new place called crossfit. What is Crossfit you ask? Well here is part of the description they use when describing what it is:

"CrossFit is the principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies and tactical operations teams, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and hundreds of other elite and professional athletes worldwide."

They have these located through out the US and just recently opened one in Midvale. My sister in law's brother works at one in California and was down in Utah helping with the new open. So we got to go try it out for free. So me, my two brothers and my sister in law head over Saturday afternoon... excited but slightly nervous. (Okay so maybe more then slightly in my case... especially since I haven't really exercised this whole summer... lol)

So once we got there we fill out some paperwork (things like I will not sue you if I get hurt- which only added to the nerves) and then started a warm-up, which consisted of doing some squats, push-ups, sit ups, and a jog around the building. Then it was time for the real work out. Don don! ;)

This is what the work out consisted of:

1. 400 meter farmer carry (which is running with about 35-40 pound weights)
2. 40 wall balls (which is basically doing squats while throwing and catching a 15 pound ball)
3. 400 meter run
4. 40 Push Presses. (lifting a bar from your shoulders to above your head.)
5. 40 Box Jumps (Jumping to a platform about 1.5 feet up and then jumping down)
6. 400 meter run
7. 40 Burpee's (Which is a six count thing involving squatting to the ground doing a push up and jump back up with a clap.)
8. 400 meter farmer carry.

Since we were first timers they had us do the routine in pairs, allowing you to kinda split up the reps. So me and Tiff where a pair and Ry and Tay where a pair. They also timed how long it took to finish the whole thing so if you do continue to come back you can try and do better each time. Me and Tiff finished in 27 mins. which I was pretty happy with. But of course for those who have been doing this for a while had times of about 13 mins. Haha.

Anywho. It was super intense and really hard. BUT I loved it! I was extremely sore for the next two days but I felt strong and fit. I would really like to sign up if the cost wasn't too much for my budget. But thus is life. If anyone wants to check it out here is their website: Oh and here are some pictures of me working out (I'm the hot one in the blue basketball shorts. ;) Hahaha):

Ya I know I look pretty retarded but oh well! :) Anywho that's all for now. Hope all is well with everyone else out there! :)


Can YOU guess!?

I like quotes. I like quoting things even more... such as TV shows, songs, cartoons, movies, etc. I'm sure if you really know me, you probably already know this. So. This blog is dedicated to quotes. (Apparently I feel like every blog I write needs a dedication to something) But to make it more fun for all of you readers out there (*cricket cricket*) we're gonna make it into a game. If you can name what every single quote is from. I'll buy you an ice cream cone... or something else in the dollar range if ice cream doesn't tickle your fancy. And here we go!

1. "Yes... No... Wait, I want to change my answer!... Oh, now we'll NEVER know!" (If you haven't noticed this is also from my previous blog... but it IS from something else originally)

2. "So evil wins, Grandpa Borgnine?"
"That's right. Even your tiny soul is doomed, Billy."

3. "And by bunnies I mean stupid people..."

4. "We threw the racket up to get the birdie. "
"We threw Gödel's cane up to get the racket. "
"And I threw Podolsky's golf club up there... to get even with him!"

5. "Sometimes... wizards are so awesome, it hurts."

6. "Why is the car stopped?"
"It's frightened..."

7. "They come in pints?... I'm getting one!"

8. "Ummm, I've been turned into a cow. Can I go home?"
"Yes, anyone else?"
"No, we're good."

9. "Here's another curse, may all your bacon burn!"

10. "Where are we going? I am going to hit your head with a hammer thats where we are going."

11. "I don't dislike you, I nothing you."

12. "Could I be wearing any more clothes!?"

13. "Thats right. You saw what you saw. That's how we roll in the Shire."

14. "What's he trying to teach us?"
"To pay attention, or we die."

15. "There's that word again; "heavy". Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?"

16. "Boy, these pretzels are makin' me thirsty."

17. "Please! This is supposed to be a happy occasion. Let's not bicker and argue over who killed who."

18. "May your forehead grow like the mighty oak!"

19. "Okay, I got everybody smalls, but remember there's free refills, so small is really a large with a little extra walking."

20. "They just said Spencer..."

So there you have it. I tried to pick ones that I think would be easier to get... so let the fun begin! :) And even if you don't know where they are from... they still make me laugh, so hopefully you got a laugh from some of them too.


I Love. The End.

So I've noticed that say "I love __(fill in the blank)__. The end." quite often. I love many things. I'm also grateful for many things. There is a difference. For example, I am extremely grateful for toilet paper, but I don't necessarily LOVE it. Anywho, so this is a tribute to all those things that I love simply because I do. They don't necessarily need an explanation, I just love them. The end. Disclaimer: These are not in any specific order and not all of the things I love.

Drip Drop

I love rain.

The end.

Okay so I guess I have more. So I went my (okay it's not really MINE, it's my dad's parents.) cabin this weekend with some siblings and one cousin-in-law and his cute cute CUTE little baby, Kelly. (Mom was not able to come because of work...)

Exhibit A:

Anywho. There are many things I love about my Grandparents cabin. Just being away from everything. The smell. The beautiful scenery. The amazing gigantic swings they have there... seriously you guys, they are the best. swings. ever. :)

Exhibit B:

So as you can see there are man reason to love the cabin. It's fun to just go up and spend time with the family and enjoy relaxing. But something special about THIS cabin experience was that we had a nice big rain storm. It was amazing. I absolutely love the rain... and probably a lot more then most who say that. I really think I might have to move to Seattle or some such place in Washington someday sooner rather then later. :) It was so nice to hear the thunder echo through the mountains and see the amazing flashes of lightning. I couldn't just sit there and watch... so I went out and stood in it for about 15 mins. Just soaking in what I could. I felt so at peace sitting there in the rain, closing my eyes and listening to it all around me, mixing in with the sounds of the booming thunder. Perfect. It was absolutely perfect, and exactly what I needed. :)

So I guess that is the point of this blog.

I love rain.

The end. :)


Happy or not...

This blog is brought to you by the letter H and the number 8.

In all seriousness I want to talk about being happy and choosing to be so.

I would consider myself a happy person. I like to smile, and like to laugh even more. But while I may laugh and smile a lot... I still can use a lot of work on choosing to be happy.

I let a lot little things bother me sometimes, and though it may not effect me for very long - I'm not one for grudges - I still let those little things get to me, such as getting angry when someone cuts me off on the road. Granted it was rude but me being upset about it wont change that it happened. So it is my new goal to choose to be happy, even when stupid people cross my path. ;) I need to find those little happy moments, such as a sunset or my favorite song coming on the radio, and hold on to them. I need to let those little un-happy moments pass me by and to keep moving forward.

I am an extremely blessed person and loved by many (or so they say ;) haha) and I really really am grateful for those people in my life and those blessings. And yes there will still be sad times in my life and bumps in the road, but I am choosing to learn from those and to grow from them and to be happy for what they will have taught me. I am choosing.

And I am happy.
