Dancing with the Stars

I've never religiously watched Dancing with the Stars before, but I have always wanted too. And this season there are a lot of stars that I actually know and I really wanna get addicted! The celeb I am most excited for is volleyball olympian Misty May-Trainor. It starts in 28 days so I'm counting down and hopefully it will work into my schedule or we're going to have to invest in Tivo:)

White and Nerdy.

Let's be honest, I don't really know what the point of this post is. Mostly it's just that Jesse and I and his parents somehow got on the subject of Donny Osmond tonight. So I guess it's only appropriate that I share my DO moments with the world.

Last year, this man you see here spoke at the Orem Institute of Religion. I was listening to Soldier of Love the whole way there to get myself pumped for the experience. He had recently finished his music video with Wierd Al Yankovic (please watch it on the right of my screen!). And he somehow spent almost the whole hour relating that video to the gospel. ha ha it was nuts but really entertaining. It was a really big stretch, but I guess he tied his celerity moment into the church.

Anyway his whole thing was that he was so nervous to do the video with Wierd Al. But he decided once he got there to just let loose and everyone loved it. And that is how we might feel about sharing info about the church. We might be nervous but we need to just relax and do it. Like I said, kind of a stretch but look at that smile; it's an hour and a half of my life I don't ever want to replace.
These are pictures of Cat and myself in Donny's backyard a couple of years ago. And yes, those are his golden records in the background- he's a little bit country (jesse tells me he was actually a little bit rock and roll. what can ya do) and a soldier of love.

How did I have these connections you might ask? You will see Brandon Osmond to the right of me. Well there you have my celebrity moment I'm still living 2 years later. Jealous of all my celebrity action Annette? :)

Put this thing in my mouth.

It's available in Hamburg... so I guess I gotta find a way to get there.

They've done it again

Let's talk gymnastics

Remember when Nastia tied for 1st place with the chinese baby and then ended up with the Silver??? That was nuts and I understand how they did the scoring and how she ended up with silver, but I definitely feel for her. How crappy to get the same exact score as the girl who gets gold... but somehow end up with silver.

Let's take another trip down gymnastics memory lane.... Shawn Johnson rocked on the dance routine. She had to go first, and kept the highest score til the very last person. I might be biased, but I really thought her routine was better than the other chica. Sorry American girls, I was really cheering for you. But silver rocks too and you have definitely kept gymnastics as one of my fav olympic sports to watch.

One of my favorite surprises...

...When Google spices up their logo. They have done this all during the olympics and usually they do on other holidays. Love it.

I just love him.

You think this post is about Jesse?!! No Way :) ! We're talking about my boyfriend Michael Phelps here. I can't even believe this guy. This was my favorite M.P. moment- when the U.S. beat France (after France said they were going to SMASH the U.S.) by .08 seconds in the 4x 100 medley Relay, Phelps was so dang excited.

Charlotte Sometimes

I'm going to take a page from Jesse's book and reccommend one of my fav artists to you all! Her name is Charlotte Sometimes and well... she rocks. Don't be alarmed by the crazy picture above. I don't know why people do the things they do, I just like her muuusack.
On the side panel are videos of her songs, you might have already heard some of them. And actually the sidebar doesn't show the best videos, it's mostly just people recording at her concerts. So go look on itunes or something. Just check this lovely lady out. She doesn't sing about kissing girls (although I will admit that song is way too catchy!).


Today is the day I'm telling it all. It may be Wednesday but eh, what can you do?

Opening Ceremonies are in just a few days! Well like two to be exact! I can't believe it, I love the Olympics. We need Tivo so I don't miss everything while we are in Disneyland- oh well Disneyland rocks too. And there will still be lots of stuff to watch when we get back. Anyway the TTA for this week asks- Are you competitive? Which event would you chooseto participate in?
I think I am semi-competitive. Not enough that I am killing everyone to win, but I do like to win. However, I get over losing really easy... like the next day I have forgotten everything. I guess that's why losing every b-ball game in high school never forced me to try harder. jk. We didn't lose EVERY game.
If I was really good and participate in whatever event I wanted to, I would do the track stuff. Those people are so fast and it would be so awesome to finish a mile in 4 minutes or something like that. Second choice- gymnastics. You know how I feel about Keri Strugg. Love her.
