ski bum!

back when i was in high school i tried snow boarding. i hated it so much and had such a horrid experience i swore i would never try it again.. besides, i hate being cold, spending money on things that don't last, and feeling like i am stuck in a situation that i can't get out of... but then, my brother in law bryce, gets me some sweet skis, some sweet bindings, boots, coat, pants... sheesh! how am i supposed to say no to these things!?!?! i mean really i can't. i got them a year ago, and weasled my way out of going. so this year brad has been dying to go, and i have been carefully avoiding it, (to save my life). i was SO scared. he finally talked me into going and it was SO MUCH FUN! i couldn't believe it. we went up to powder mountain. we just got a day pass for the little hill, and that was plenty. and the best part was that i have friends up there who are ski instructors! yay! so i tried going down one run by myself. with the help of madi and brad, but neither of them are skiers, so they were just trying to get me down the hill alive. i made it.. and i insisted on getting a coke. luckily lisa (awesome neighbor/friend) was done with he lesson. so she went on a couple of runs with me and i think i only fell like 3 or 4 times the rest of the day. i am grateful for my hub. he made me go and i was really nervous, but it was such a good time i want to go more. it was a perfect little date. i am so grateful for lisa too! she is truly one of the most down to earth people i have ever met and i am glad to have her in my life, even if it's hardly ever. loves, sav

Tell Lisa "Hello!" for me. I love her too! Is she still working at Red Lobster?

How fun Sav. I will join you next year. I told Bry I wanted to pick it up again. Now that being pregnant and having infants are out of the way I think it will be a fun winter activity to try again.

How fun I am jealous!

I read at the bottom of your blog about the books your wanting to read. I have some really good books I have read as of lately. I just finished "Gone with the Wind" which is with out a shadow of a doubt the best book I have ever read. Also "These is my Word" is very good, the second book "Sarah's Quilt" is ok, I heard the third one is a lot better. Also "The Hunger Game", and "Catching Fire" very very good. Along the lines of teen reads (which I got into for awhile after finishing the Twilight books) "The Host", and "The Forest of Hands and Teeth". I got kind of burnt out on that theme of teenage love drama. I moved on to Malcom Gladwell and read "Tipping Point", "Outliers" and "Blink: the Power of Thinking with out Thinking". Along those lines "Freakeconomics" is awesome! Also I think you would like "A New World", or "The power of Now", both are very good, by Eckhart Tolle. Right now I am in the middle of reading "The Grapes of Wrath", and I am enjoying that one as well. I could go on and on and on, but here are a few I would recommend. I seriously highly recommend "Gone with the Wind", the best on my list.
