okay, I know it’s not December. it’s most def March. (I would be so pissed if it was December again.. starting more winter.) but it will make sense in a minute.
but what a week it has been!
Sunday you already know about, mostly. see last post.
Monday after work was a lil family party at Gram’s house because my cousin was visiting from Texas. always a good time with the fandamily. they’re funny, funny people. I heart them.
Tuesday after work (like how everything in my life happens after work? yes, I noticed that too.) I went to the temple. but this time was special.. because my bro, Isaac, was going for his first time. this is because he got his mission call at the end of Feb. oh freaking yeah.
and he is going to….
Brazil Sao Paulo Interlagos!!!!!
folks, believe it or not, this is the same city my other brother went to.. just the mission that borders it. (there are like 5 missions in that ginorm city) and I don’t know who was more excited.. Isaac or Clarke
haha. oh hey Danny’s head.
aww what cute brothers I have!
anyway, the temple. there is nothing like the temple. walking into the Celestial Room and seeing my family standing in a smiling circle and feeling that peace so thick it’s tangible… that’s the only place in the world you can feel like that. period. I’m so grateful for that blessing.
Wednesday after work I had a special little treat. I got to sit 5th row at the Energy Solutions Arena to take in the beautiful spectacle that is the Utah Jazz, baby!! fifth freaking row! thank you, Scott.
and the following things happened while I was there:
1. we sat surrounded by old dudes who are season ticket holders. the one next to me was so cute and he kept reaching underneath his seat for his water bottle, clarifying that he wasn’t trying to get “fresh” with me. ha!
2. the old bald dude in front of us stood up EVERY time the Jazz scored with his 2 young teenage friends and high-fived. every. time. but he was amusing. and pretty popular. like.. everyone knew him. and then he started high-fiving me too.
3. the Jazz bear was walking down the sloped railing like a balance beam.. guess what happened next?
yeah, he fell. not to the right. not to the left. straight down the middle. of his legs, that is. o.u.c.h. but oh my gosh, was I glad I was watching him instead of the layup by the Timberwolves at that moment. so sadly hilarious.
4. some summation of River Dance, clogging, porcelain dolls, and square dancing happened during halftime. don’t ask me. I don’t know. it was weird.
5. I was so close to my boyfriend Paul Millsap, I think he could feel our future bond growing stronger. it’s so inevitable, I can just feel it.
6. I forgot my camera AND my phone. I, therefore, have no pictures. because I suck.
7. the Jazz killed the Timberwolves. because they are awesome at life. and I have to make a shout-out to Korver because he rocked it. it was his birthday AND St. Patty’s Day. he was jivin’.
(yeah I just said jivin’. what?)
Thursday after work (yep) I got to have a little quality bff time with Cam..
at the The Blow/Vampire Weekend concert. YEZZIR! let’s just talk about how awesome it was for a second. the girl from The Blow, as some of you may already know, is a total spaz… but amusing. she dances the whole time. and I love her music. it’s electronic but really unique.
not actually their music video.. but these dudes made a low quality video that is QUITE entertaining indeed.
the dude behind us did not share our appreciation… very vocally. and then we shut him up. and he tried to awkwardly apologize to us for disrespecting her later. haha.
but ohhh Vampire Weekend! often times… the moment I see a band perform live is the moment I truly fall in love with them. this was no exception. it was such an awesome show. and not only were their personalities cool, but they are so TALENTED! you can ask Cam, because I think I told her 52 times how much the drummer blew my mind. at one point he was playing 3 completely different beats at the same time with a foot and two arms WHILE singing harmony. I was so impressed. and all of them are talented like that. their music is complex but entertaining, and you can tell they are actually legit musicians with a comprehensive knowledge of music theory. and very innovative. here’s my favorite song of theirs. probably not the most musically complex, as I just finish raving about that… but freakin’ awesome. I give you.. California English:
and by the way, the title of this post is from their song “Horchata.” another beauty.
here they are in real life:
no, your eyes do not deceive you. the dude on the keys had 5 keyboards out at one point. I want his job. (I think I’ve said “dude” like 5 times in this post, alone. you know you love it.)
does one dare to think this week is not even over yet?
tonight (after work) is a movie + hockey.
and tomorrow (NOT after work! pah!) Cam and I are shooting a wedding.. as in.. photographing it. ack!! so excited!
my life is good. kbye.
