My ol' Kentucky Home

(If you aren't from KY you probably don't get the title .. it's a song.)

So the weirdest thing happened today. I had to fly to KY for work - nothing unusual about that. The thing that was weird was that when I landed at the airport and was walking through towards the rental car area I heard people talking around me with their accents and the different phrases that you hear only in KY and ... I WAS HOMESICK. I felt like I was "home".
Why is this weird you ask? Because I am from Utah .. I grew up in Utah. Sure I have traveled a lot and I lived in KY for several years but it still isn't my "home" yet I felt like I had come home. Weird how things just happen to hit you sometimes.

I haven't had a chance to upload our photos from Hawaii or blog about our great trip yet. However, I have had MULTIPLE requests for the video of Chris's awesome Boss, Monica, showing off her secret talent - poi balls! Therefore, I am posting this separately so everyone can enjoy. Stay tuned for a later post about the rest of our trip!

"Twilight bug"

OK, so I know I am behind the times and everybody else in the entire Valley has already read the Twilight series AND seen the movie. HOWEVER, I kept putting it off because I was not interested AT ALL. I don't do Vampires and it just didn't interest me. EVERYONE kept telling me "It's different", "You will LOVE it", etc, etc but being my stubborn self, I kept saying "No".
My Sister, however, was not going to take "No" for an answer and gave me the first book for Christmas. I figured since I had it in my house, sitting right next to me, I may as well give it a shot. I planned to take it with on the plane to Hawaii next week. I figured I wouldn't have anything better to do. However, I picked it up the other night "just to check it out" and .... I HAVE THE TWILIGHT BUG! Ya know .. a BUG .. like DISEASE! I can't put the stinkin' thing down! I guess I am going to have to go get the 2nd one to take with me on vacation now! SHEESH! Now I see what all the hype was about!
