CHEERS and um...... DEERS?!?

This last Thursday we went to the Jazz game & watched them beat the Trailblazers! Go Jazz! And thanks Dad for the ticks! We had a blast! Krista, Jesse & sweet lil' baby Janie came with us ( I can't believe I didn't get a picture of all of us! My bad.)! But onto the big blue elephant in the room... What's with the deer you ask? Have I taken up hunting? No. Did I take a beautiful stroll up the mountaintops & watch Deers in their natural habitat? No. Did I look out my back window & see SIX BUCKS 20 FEET AWAY FROM MY BACK DOOR? DING, DING, DING... WE HAVE A WINNER! They were even closer than they appear in this picture, but by the time I got my camera, wouldn't ya know it, they had wandered on a bit! What in the world? But it was really fun to watch them, they were really pretty. I was just happy it wasn't a pack of wolverines or mountain lions.... You DO realize that when they were building our house is when they really DID catch a mountain lion out this way. Craziness! I didn't know we'd be living at a zoo, minus the security of, oh what are those things called again... CAGES!!!

Little Miss Obsessive

Okay, so maybe I shouldn't be admitting this, but when I decide I like something, I really like it! Like I get obsessed, as told to me by a doctor "You, definitely have O.C.D. Laura"! Thanks, I kind of already figured that, but here's your $100.00, don't call me, I'll call you! So I like my throw pillows to be EXACTLY how I like them, can't stand it if my Coffee Table books are even the slightest bit crooked, and I simply CANNOT fall asleep at night if the house hasn't been cleaned from the day's activities. I actually don't look at my O.C.D. as a bad thing.... it keeps my house clean & I feel like it makes me a wee bit more passionate about certain things. As previously mentioned, when I like something, I LOVE something (am I starting to sound psycho?, I don't mean to if I am, so recognize & let's all move on :)! Here are some of my latest obsessions....

* The band Safetysuit. If you haven't heard of them,
check 'em out! (Some of their stuff is on my play list below.)
*The Whiskey BBQ Wrap @ Red Robin- I highly recommend it!
*Bath & Body Works "Aloe Socks", Soooo soft & warm, put body butter
on your feet before you slip into these & your feet will be baby soft in no time!
*A Grande Strawberries & Cream Frapachino minus the whipped cream @ Starbucks! (Don't you worry family, there's no coffee in it, just a yummy smoothie of sorts.)
*Playing a CD called "Sleep Deeply" as I'm going to sleep, I bought into the idea that it scientifically is supposed to help you sleep deeply, as the title implies. Don't know
if it really does, but I like it!
*Britney Spears new song "Circus" I am not ashamed in the least!
*The Hills, this has been an ongoing obsession since the get go of Laguna Beach & then be still my heart they made a spin off with Lauren Conrad!
*The new music video by The All American Rejects "Gives you Hell"
* The Nordstrom Cafe (located upstairs), they have the BEST soups, sandwiches, & salads!
*The game Catch Phrase, we've been playing this game a lot at my parents house lately & have had some pretty funny moments because of it!
*Okay, another Bath & Body Works shout out, but their new "SHEA CASHMERE" body line, smells sooooo yummy!
*Arrested Development, I always try to decide which is my favorite character, but I can't! They are ALL so funny & play their parts so well. Oh, & I heard that they are making an Arrested Development Movie & I couldn't be more excited!
So, I will stop there, because as any fellow Obsession filled person knows, we can just keep going on & on & on & on, Oh & did I say On & on & on & on & on & on & on & on & on....................................
