Sketchy Arm

Unfortunately, I can't embed this video, but it's a must see. It's "literal" lyrics to A-Ha's video, Take On Me. The Unc showed it to me late at night, and for some reason, I laughed and laughed and laughed and couldn't stop laughing. I had throat and chest pain the next morning.



The Killers

I did not shoot the show Saturday night, but Morgan snapped some shots with his Blackberry, so enjoy the mobile photo montage below. The show was awesome. The fire and spark showers were very cool, but I'm always worried that Ronnie will get burned. The confetti was eye candy, Ted was brilliant with his guest spot on Losing Touch (my fav), the after party was interesting but crowded, and I'm pleased that the loose spotlight didn't fall onto B-Flow. It was a very good night.


O.K. What's going on?

No joke. I had another rock 'n roll dream last night. That makes three nights in a row.

So last night, in the dream, Iggy Pop and Kate Pierson reunited to do a television performance of Candy. This, in and of itself is so random 'cause I barely remember this song and didn't care for it at all. So, there they were on TV and THEY WERE SO OLD. They looked like they were in their 90's. Which isn't hard for Iggy. And the both wore really thick, coke bottle glasses that made their eyes look 4 times their natural size. And neither of them were wearing their false teeth so their lips were all sucked in and weird. It was really bizarre.

In unrelated news, today is my birthday and I had a really great day. Even though I ate too much at Tucano's tonight (Thanks, The Unc). But that balances out with the bike ride to Bridal Veil Falls this morning. {Provo Canyon + fall leaves + biking to the falls + the mossy river smell = birthday BLISS!} It didn't feel like my birthday at all this morning when I woke up. Just been too busy to really remember or think about it. But that changed when I saw my doorstep after Miss Katie left for school. Amber and Commander Power plastered my door and porch with 'Happy Birthday' signs, balloons and a gift card. It was a really great way to start my birthday. It made it really feel like a birthday. So also did all the cards, emails, texts, calls, surprise cakes, and wall comments. I love it. Thanks for being my friend. Loves...


Another Dream

I don't know why I've had 2 celeb dreams 2 nights in a row. Big Connor (a.k.a. The Unc) says this is the house of weird dreams 'cause he's been having them too since he moved in.

On with the show....

So, last night I dreamed that my little family and I were staying in a huge, fancy mansion with a bunch of other peeps, most of whom were family. The Daines' were there. And so was Jack Black. And Brandon Flowers.

J.B. was doing some sort of appearance wherever we were, and stayed with us in the mansion. So, the night we were there, I took Baby Connor (who was a 2 week old newborn) into Jack's room so we could chit-chat in his bed in our pajamas. We talked about Neon Trees, about us being total Mormons, about how awesome I loved him in The Cable Guy, and other fun stuff.

B-Flow was there to be our family chef. He made huge, gourmet burgers that night, but for some reason they were all gone when I came down to eat. He was in a good mood and feeling very generous, so he gave me his burger. Then he gave me a pep-talk on what a strong, intelligent person I am and how I should demand the things I want out of life. (Should I tell him about this when I see him Saturday night?) It was weird. And awesome.



Last night I dreamed that Justin Timberlake lived next door to us with all his little brothers and sisters in a super ghetto shack. Something was happening inside their house and they all had to wear gas masks and chemical-protectant suits or something. J.T. asked me to go in my house and get him a hat and gloves and a bullet-proof vest, which I did, then he was going to try to go inside and help. Problem was, he had a disorder that's like the opposite of agoraphobia and he didn't like to go indoors. Ever. So, he lived underwater in a bath tub in their front yard.

Next thing I know, he's in a convertible shooting a video with a bunch of ladies. One was supposed to be J.Lo, but it was more like an SNL skit where someone was dressed up like her and acting weird and funny. It was very entertaining.

p.s. Remember this dream about J.T.?


Mt. Hollie

After church on Sunday, we decided to head down south to my parent's condo at Mt. Hollie for the night. Fishlake National Forest is beautiful right now. I didn't expect to see so much color, but this is what we saw:


Holly's Giveaway

If you want to win this kid's apron, you have until this Sunday to post a comment on Holly's blog: The Peas In Our Pod

You can also pick up some of Holly's crafty craftiness at Rock Canyon Park's upper pavilion tomorrow (Fri-18th) from 10:00 a.m.-7:30 p.m.

On a side note...I've won 5 blog giveaways in the last year, and NOT ONE of you have made good on the prize. Hmmm. You ladies know who you are. I had a giveaway as well, seen here, and my prints were all shipped out within a couple weeks. What's going on people? Do I need to write about you on the UnCool? I'm just sayin'...just sayin'.


Miss Katie

I had to do a quick shoot with Katie before her two front teeth fall out. I forgot how much I love shooting her. She's SO GREAT in front of the camera!

And I REALLY love this shot of her, but truth be told, she's super ticked at me in this picture because I wouldn't let her be done yet...even though we just saw 2 giant black beetles, about 500 grasshoppers (all over her) and a 4 FOOT LONG SNAKE!

Here's the snake. We keep finding snakes where we go!
I love Katie.


Baby Man

Here's where I found Baby Connor when I got out of the shower yesterday:

2 year old boys are much different than 2 year old girls. This is a whole new world to me. Holy terror.


Combustible Huxtable

I found a new way to get Katie to practice spelling out words.


My Boyfriend's Back

It's been almost 3 weeks since Bdog left but for some reason it felt wwwaaayyy longer this time. He's back for a couple weeks. I'm so grateful to have my nanny/house keeper/personal assistant/love slave home for a while. I'm also thankful that I genuinely look forward to him being here and that we have fun together and want to do stuff and hang out. I miss him when he's gone.


Domestic Goddesses

Last week, Mitzi, Amber, Kelly and I spent 14 STRAIGHT HOURS doing this:
We made over 100 quarts of homemade apple sauce.
Martha's got nothin' on us.


Cannon Family Pics

I realized I never posted my favorite pics from this shoot. It makes me so happy when people want to do family portraits in front of old trailers and dirty walls. I just LOVE IT.


Heaven Help Us

Here are these jeans that I have that I've actually worn outside of the house. Because apparently, Hell has frozen over.
