Sugar anyone???

Sorry for my not updating the blog regularly like I should, however, we have as always been busy and sick! Kam is in the midst of finals, and is finally finishing his last one today. He took one yesterday and said it was HORRIBLE!! Also, unfortunately there has been a horrible stomach bug that has been ripping through the ward that Kam caught. This little bug made itself present in full force Friday night, Saturday and part of the day on Sunday. Kam also spoke in Sacrament meeting on Sunday...so needless to say we have been busy. I was looking at the calender and noticing we have had or do have something going on everyday last week and this week!
Since I have been so busy, I haven't had time to express my exuberant joy over the announcement of the Utes going to the Sugar bowl!! I love the Utes, they are my Alma mater, my dad attended the U and Kam graduated from the U. Kam's little brother Kory is a graduate and my little brother Ryan will be a graduate. We have the pride running deep and are growning in numbers as much of mine and Kam's family are all Coug fans. I know I may catch flack for expressing this, but I was so happy when they beat the ducks who beat USC, when the beat TCU and most of all when they went undefeated and clinched the Mountain West conference by beating the Y! AWESOME!!
So when we heard they were going to the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, (approximately 3 hours from Jackson) we were so happy, until we found out the cheap seats are approximately $100. So, we are trying to decide if that's something we can do or not. Irregardless if we are there or not, we will be cheering for our team!!

What exactly you ask? Well, online shopping. I love online shopping. As a matter of fact, I have completed my shopping for Kam's birthday, last years, and this years Christmas online. Don't get me wrong, I love going out to the stores and looking around, but there is something to be said for being able to go to almost any store with the click of a button. I find for the most part, I can get a better deal online, and if you look at the right times, you can even find free shipping (although paying some shipping doesn't bother me too much as I figure I spend that money in gas going to the store to make my purchases). I also made some cute Christmas cards online, and all I have to do is go to the store and pick them up. They will be printed and ready to go! So great!
I also have to admit that since finishing Ellison's scrapbook online, I have found that I am addicted to scrap booking online. I like the ease, affordability and the fact that I only have to pick prefab pages and click my picture in. I have also found that I can get a cute scrapbook done in very little time! I am in the midst of uploading all our other photos so I can start another book and get our pictures out in hard copy. So, I am now wondering how I ever lived without online scrap booking.
Anyhow, just a few random thoughts from a very random person! By the way, here's a random one for you. I have side swept bangs, should I grown them out or keep them? Just curious?! Hope you all are doing well!
