Okay I guess I am not so smart...


Well for those of you who left a guess- you were all right!!! Maybe it wasn't so difficult after all, but I will still let myself feel smart for that moment. Sorry Sacramento-Whitney about the candy cane, but for Amanda and Darci- A little peppermint package shaped as a cane will end up at your door sometime in the next few days!!

I'm smart!!!!

I don't really ever say this about myself... but I feel like I should say it today!! Robert called me from work to ask a question. He was playing are you smarter than a fifth grader at work ( thanks for earning the big bucks honey) and called me for his life line and million dollar question!! ( I think that is a combo of a few different game shows) The question he asked was: What type of plant are Lilies, Orchids, and Grasses? Well I got it right and he won and felt smart in front of his coworkers- as did I (while I was stirring mac and cheese and wiping snotty noses.) Granted I was a Horticulture major but still - I graduated almost five years ago so I have forgotten a lot of useless information.

Do any of you know the answer???

If you get it right I will personally come to your house and give you a candy cane..if you live in Utah that is.

Good luck!

Hot Short Shorts on our Catamaran in Cabo

View of our ship off Lovers Beach
So no red ligh heels and slutty bikinis but it was a lot of fun and a lot of sleep- very relaxing- just in time for all the snow we are getting. I can't complain now....:) The highlight of the trip for me was Rob singing kareoke to Boys to Men -- I'll make love to you. I signed him up so he was suprised when they called his name. He went up to sing even though he was bright red. I don't think I have laughed so hard in a long time.
