My new home

So my mom and I decided to start working out together. We are sick of being overweight and decided to join a local gym. I have to say it has been going well. We joined on Tuesday and have gone every day since. We have been trying to do some cardio and then lifting weights. I have to say for anyone in the area who isnt a member of a gym this one is really nice. No kids and lots of machines.

Seriously? ugggghh

Now I don't watch American Idol very often but all the girls at work do so I figured I would tune in last night to see the Salt Lake City auditions. I was sorely disappointed when the below clown came out with his stupid pink bunny luck charm and then told people he was from Ogden, Utah. Seriously, why do retards on tv have to make the whole country think of giant pink bunnies when they think of Ogden. UGHHHH!!!

Layton Christian Academy

High School Tag
I got tagged to do this High School survey thingy by Nate and thought, what the heck, it is slow at work and I have time. Why not travel back in time to my High School Days.

Layton Christian Academy

1. Did you date someone in high school? lol, wow I would really like to skip this question. There is always the question of what do you consider dating, lol, I dated a few.

2. What kind of car did you drive? Since my mom taught at the elementary school I rode with her a lot of the time in a Pontiac GrandAm. My senior year I was able to drive my lovely 2001 Honda Civic. I loved it and still do. (not fun when the idiot hit me in the parking lot when it was only 2 weeks old).

3. Did you pass your driver's license test the first time? Oh yeah, I took it at a local High School. It was funny to be in the same class with a kid that used to call me Ashley weird last name in Elementary School.

4. Were you a party animal? As much as you can be at a private school.

5. Were you considered a flirt? I don't think so. I think some people may have said that because I hung out with all the guys. But that was more because all the girls were moody and the guys were a lot more fun.

6. Were you in band, orchestra, or choir? None of them!

7. Were you a nerd? No, I may have gotten good grades but definitely not the nerd of the class.

8. Did you ever get expended or expelled? No, just kicked out of class a lot for too much talking.

9. Can you still sing your fight song? I honestly don't even think we had a fight song.

10. Who were your favorite teachers? I loved most of my teachers but Mr. Parker, Mr. Hembrock, and Mr. Martin were some of my favorite.

11. Where did you sit at lunch? I moved around from day to day. I enjoyed hanging out with the guys at lunch a lot. They were pretty funny.

12. What sports did you play? lol, the question more is what I did not play. I played basketball, volleyball, cross country, etc.

13. Were you on any varsity teams? I was on the Varisty basketball and volleyball teams. Regions Champs!!!! I miss my best gal pal in sports Megan!

14. School mascot and colors? An Eagle, Maroon and silver. GO EAGLES!

15. Did you go to homecoming and who with? I didn't really go to homecoming(we didnt really have on per say) but I did go to a couple of dances. I went with Matt and Robby.

16. If you could go back and do it again, would you? I loved High School but I am also glad that part of my life is over.

17. What do you remember most about graduation? I was the first graduate of the first graduating class. What, what!

18. Where did you go on Senior Skip Day? Didn't have one, I always was at school. I remember one day we skipped classes to meet this guy I liked at the time and then the principal found out and lectured us when we got back. But I got out of getting in any real trouble.

19. Were you in any clubs? Hmm, good question. I am sure I was but my brain is at a loss currently.

20. Have you gained weight since then? lol, yeah lets not talk about that.

21. Who was your prom date? Like I said I went to dances but can't distinguish who for what.

22. Are you planning on going to your 10 year reunion? I would actually love to that would be really fun.

23. Did you have a job while in high school? No, I was too busy with sports and Early College.

I tag: Melissa, Claire, Amy B., Tanya, and Natalie

I love it....

I have been wanting to post for awhile now about my new book club. Some of my sister in laws and my sister and some friends have started a book club. We are reading a book a month and then discussing it. The first book we just finished was "Three Cups of Tea" By Greg Mortenson. It is about a man who was a climber in Pakistan and ended up building schools for children(especially girls), in small villages there. I really enjoyed it. For this next month the book I chose was The Invisible Wall By Harry Bernstein. I am really excited for this book and have heard good things. The one thing I wanted to share on here was Many of my friends and I are on good reads. For those facebook/myspace haters you may like Good Reads. It is basically a social networking site with the sole purpose to discuss books you have read or are currently reading. You can also look at tons of reviews for books you are thinking about reading. I know many of you are big book lovers and thought you may want to check it out!

Some of my extended family came to visit from Texas. It was nice to see them and meet my cousins little girl Cambrie!

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas. We hung out at our house on Christmas Eve and spent some time with my cousins. On Christmas Day we went over to Thaddeus brother and his wifes house (Josh and Sarah). We had a lot of fun. Here is our fam in front of their tree. Here is a pic of Thaddeus brother and his wife(Caleb and Tanya).
Unfortunately my picture of the hosts(Josh and Sarah) refuses to upload. I will try to figure it out. It was great to spend time with family for Christmas.
