garrett said that to his mom yesterday. when she told him to downshift because she could smell his brakes as we were driving through the mountains. later on i laughed so hard, it was like a delayed reaction. when it hit me though, i couldn't stop. it was such a juvenile, snotty thing to say, he's lucky he didn't get slapped. that's why i love him (he was joking... see, i love his automatic comeback abilities.) we went up to cascade springs yesterday, which is up american fork canyon. jared, liz & madeline rode in the car with us. between garrett's stellar driving abilities & jared yelling at pedastrians, i think someone is lucky i didn't mess my pants. we had a good time, to say the least.
oh yeah, madeline presented me with this (not an actual can of dr pepper, it is a little lip smackers thingy) when i walked in their house yesterday. apparently she'd been thinking of me on her trip to yellowstone. i love her. she's absolutely darling. you should see her in person, she oozes personality.
we came back just in time to stop by the "what a woman wants" expo at south towne. this woman only wants one thing... the funnyface photobooth at her wedding reception. funnyface was doing a giveaway and we just had to sign up for it! we did. and we had a chance to get in the booth and have a little fun. if we win, it'll be what i'm most excited about at our reception. (they're announcing the winners tomorrow... keep your fingers crossed!) thanks holly for the heads up! (funnyface aka deb has been holly's photographer - she's the one who did will's monthly pictures)
so the deal is, you cut the pictures down the middle (4X6) and then we'd keep one strip & the people would keep the other strip. is that not the coolest?
then, this was in my mailbox when i got back to school. yes, as a teacher, i still have to have my picture taken every year. not my favorite thing... but the note on my picture this year made up for it. i laughed so hard. i don't know who wrote it, but it sure tickled my fancy.
