It was the best of times; it was the worst of times!

So this weekend Chase and I got into the Homecoming spirit at BYU. On Friday night we had a chance to attend the Homecoming Spectacular at the Marriott Center. I've been to a few Spectaculars over the past 7 years, and I must say that this one was the best I've seen. It was so well done! Loved all the performances!!

Saturday we watched Game Day on ESPN in the morning pumping ourselves up for the game that evening. Sadly, it was all for not! We had the closest parking spot ever--thanks to the scooter--and the best seats either one of us has ever had, but sadly we did not witness many a touchdown that night at Lavell Edwards Stadium. Our wicked awesome seats kept us at the stadium until the 4th quarter began, but by then it was just torture to stay and watch. It truly was the best of times and the worst of times.
Row 9 baby!

Our cousin Russell was able to come too! It was fun to form a "scooter gang" on our way to the game.

Not only was I impressed with TCU's playing, but I was also impressed with their tradition of praying before each half.

We started strong...

(Thank you to our good friend for hooking us up this weekend! We owe you big time :)!)

When stressed...run away!

I'm not really trying to run away, but a few weeks ago with responsibilities piling up and stress mounting, Chase felt I needed a vacation. Luckily, this week Alpine School District has Fall Break yesterday and today. So after checking my options we booked me a flight to Minnesota to visit the Gassin crew (as shown below)...so here I am in Minnesota braving the cold and playing with the kiddos! Being an aunt is the best. Thanks babe for looking out for me and my sanity. Stay tuned to many a picture of my adventures here.

The Video

So after complications, the video has surfaced. If you'd like to witness how I gracefully (yeah right) downed the nachos at our ward social, please check out the video I am tagged in on facebook. Just go to my profile page and you'll see the video. If we aren't friends on facebook, lets be friends! If you don't "do" facebook, eh, to each their own :)
