It has been a long and varied couple of days.
Sadly, I found out my aunt Regina finally passed away last night.
The news came toward the end a really busy and fun couple of days. I met with three awesome Bloggity Friends in Salt Lake and had a GREAT time that included finally going to IKEA. (Mmmm. Meatballs. MMM…) and ending up on the news. (Don’t worry it was good. You’re not going to find out I am really a man or anything.)
I will write about it all a little later, because JAMES HAS SUPER GLUED CHRISTOPHER’S FREAKING ARMPITS TOGETHER! Apparently, I now have to figure out how to unstick them without ripping off his entire epidermal layer. Yay.
Update to the Update
The acetone worked. Christopher (And his armpits) are recovering with IKEA Sweet Oat cookie crisps and Cartoon Network. I’m still pretty much numb about my aunt. I know I’ll deal with it later, but for now I’m just going to move on and talk about happier things.
Mandi (Center), Jen (Left) and I met in Salt Lake and had a ‘Girly Slumber Party’ at a hotel. I kept calling Mandi, “Erika” all night because way back in the day when I first started reading her I got her and another fabulous blogger mixed up. It is rather embarassing. Sigh.
After dinner and searching for an hour for our lost, parked car in the gateway parking complex, we headed back to the hotel to have hours of laughing, pedicures, “Midnight Margaritas”. They were virgin of course. They’re active LDS and I think alcohol tastes like ass.
As for the news and our “Three Seconds of Fame”:
After acquiring about 3 refreshing hours of sleep, Jen (Who I only got 2 photos of on my camera. We mainly shot with Mandi’s. EEK!)went to work and Mandi and I headed up to foothill village to watch my fabulous celebrity chef friend, Bryan do a cooking segment on the news. It was awesome. The cameraman, Kevin, was hilarious and let us feel special by wearing his press credentials and suggesting “Action Shot” poses. He’s a camera man. He knows the value of a great pose!
Bryan being Bryan he managed to work a shot of us into the broadcast. Apparently, Mandi and I are the sort of people that infiltrate newscasts because we smell good pot roast on the street. Bryan is such a loveable dork sometimes. I heart him. You can see our 3 seconds of fame here .We’re around the two minute mark. Don’t blink. You’ll miss it.
After chatting at Starbucks with everyone, Jen met us and we went to IKEA. It was a really overwhelming experience. Fabulous and amazing but it is so huge and there are so many great things at such great prices that it sort of fried my brain with over stimulation. By the end of it we were totally worn out.
Teals and blues seem to be the color of the season for both of us.
I bought both of us these fantabulous matching earrings as a gift to Mandi and she bought me a stuffed DODO bird from IKEA in homage of the restaurant we ate at. We noticed the mural with the dodo’s wearing bling in the first place when she turned to me and said, “I am not saying that you remind me of a turkey or anything, but you and the turkey on the wall are wearing the same ring”
I know I’ll see these two again. Mandi may come up to Logan before she leaves and as for Jen I FINALLY HAVE SOMEONE WHO WILL GO SEE NEIL DIAMOND WITH ME!!!! Woot.
I had a total blast.
