Mo-town Philly back again!

So my Manager at work had these tickets to the Boys II Men concert at the state fair that he gave to Derek and I! Totally awesome! I know, I know, you are thinking "I didn't know Boys II Men still existed" but they do! It was a sold out show! They are in their 19th year as a mo-town group and there are now only 3 of them but they have an album releasing in November or something. Anyway it was totally awesome! I had a blast dancin' and singing along and acting like a crazy teenager again. Derek didn't dance with me, but assured me he still had fun. It was like I was 10 all over again. I'm pretty impressed I still knew the words to many of their songs-just another testament that, though I can't sing, I'd still kick butt at "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" 3 middle aged men doing the same choreography and dance moves they learned when they were teens, quite entertaining!

Oh the excitement!

There they are...

Sweet moves yo!

That was awesome!

Even the Questar Gas man was there to join in the fun.
You know the tall skinny guy from the commercials?...The tall one middle top in the white shirt. He moved and I only had my camera phone but it's totally him!

Afterwards we stopped by the fair and saw the pigs...

This guy was HUGE!

Ahh the three little pigs...I wonder which one builds his house out of bricks?

For the beauty of the Earth

I've been noticing lately just how lovely the earth all around us is. (Maybe its due to the fact that my camera is currently broken :( so I can't take pictures) But it just dawned on me the other day how many sunflowers there are in Utah. I know, I know-Derek tells me they have always been there, but I was driving down the freeway the other day and was amazed at how many there were-and everywhere! Made my traffic time a little more bearable and actually pleasant.
Have you see the sunsets lately?! From our old apartment you could not see anything but now we are higher up on the hill side and we often get to catch the sunsets on the way home. The other day it was "fruit punch" red, I had never seen it like that! Absolutely beautiful. I made Derek drive around the neighborhood to find the perfect viewing point.
And then yesterday just after the rain stopped I was staring at the majesty of the Wasatch Mountains. They tower over our home, and I see them everyday, but there was no smog and I felt like I had just walked out of an eye doctor with an updated contact prescription. They truly are beautiful and can't wait to see the colors change this fall! God truly blesses us each day with beauty and love all around!
Here's to hoping we all take a minute out of our day to take notice of this blessing and thank God for it.

Thank you!

Kandis did a wonderful job planning our anniversary activities. We went go-cart racing at the Miller Motor Sports Park and then enjoyed some pampering with massages at a spa. Thanks Kandis for planning a wonderful anniversary. You did a GREAT job and it was awesome to be able to spend some time with you. I love you!
