Snow! Snow! Snow!

I was informed today that it has been awhile since I added a new post to the good ol' blog. It is currently snowing like crazy outside, so I thought that snow would be a good topic. The last big storm we had was on the day of the ward Christmas party. Because I was in charge of it, and had left most of the preparations to the last minute, I couldn't go snowboarding. I was in dire need of some "outdoor time" so I decided to go snowshoeing for a few hours. I headed to Millcreek canyon and started hiking on the Pipeline trail. It was soooo beautiful!

I did eventually make it snowboarding. I took a day off of work and headed to Snowbird. It was freezing cold, but a lot of fun. After a day of snowboarding, I met up with some friends and we headed to Driggs Idaho. We didn't get there until 2:00 in the morning. After a few hours of sleep we rolled out of bed and headed to Grand Targhee. It was pretty sweet! It snowed all day long and so we had fresh powder for most of the day.

In conclusion, I love snow!

My Favorite Gas Station

During one of my recent trips down south, I discovered a "favorite gas station". It's a Chevron in Fillmore that has a bathroom with tile covered walls and hand dryers that practically blow your skin off. In addition to the amazing bathrooms, there are these freaky porcelain dolls in the entry way. They range from 3 footers to little minatures. On the most recent trip down I discovered one more reason for nominating this as my favorite gas station.
These should really be sold right along with the following:

Let the Good Times Roll

I'm headed to St. George this weekend to run a race and see Joel in Sweeney Todd. Needless to say, I am pretty excited to head south to a warmer climate. The last time I was down, it was snowing in Salt Lake. We got to go hike around Zion instead. This is a pic near the Emerald Pools. All our pics our here (Some Wasatch Crest pics are there too):

Sweeney Todd looks like a slightly demented kind of play. Here is the trailer for the movie.

According to Joel, it makes him feel like he put pop rocks down

I Hate Sprint!!

Back in the spring of this year, I made a big mistake at work...I signed the company up for some aircards with Sprint. Little did I know that they have the worst customer service out there. After sitting on hold with them for the past hour and after being transferred to 8 different people, I decided to start a blog, while I still sit on hold. So for future reference to anyone who happens to read this - stay far, far away from Sprint!!!

I've never had a blog before, so this is a whole new realm for me. I feel like I have taken a small step for mankind, but a giant leap for me.

As I have been writing this, I was transferred one more time. This really is ridiculous.
