Feelin the Love

My parents always told me that people will tease someone they like. I tend to also do this. My coworkers have been going a little crazy with teasing lately. I've been feeling the love. When I got to work this morning I noticed my trophy had been changed to read "Cowtown Jambore Spelling Bee." For those of you who really know me, you understand how funny this is.

While I was gone at Jamborama they decided to give me a play by play of everything that happened while I was gone. I'm not going to include names or all of the entries because I want my blog to remain G rated. I also know most people will not understand these.

NON OF THE EVENTS are true but rather partially related to the truth.


1. Payday-everyone here received sizable bonus (sorry Viv) (must have been present to receive said bonus)

2. 3:59pm... B bursts into program area muttering something about Viv not having enouph vacation. Will be discussed upon return.

3. 6:15pm... L and G are still sitting out front waiting for their ride...

4. 7:36pm... Still Waiting

5. 12:23pm... Jitterbugs show up in flesh colored spandex costumes and saddle shoes. K very turned on, inquiring where to find a costume for J and herself.


8:30am... H announces engagement to C

4:45pm... K still talking about jitterbug costumes and (censored)

5:03pm... H never speaking to C again

5:04pm... Okay, maybe will go with C for coffee later on tonight

10:07am... Questions arise about gender of Elijah. Thought Elijah= male, after finding charting sheet from 8/24 and Viv writing Ellisha, not sure. And how did Viv find out?

Just as soon as I finished posting last night I noticed that Onionboy had his pictures up. I have to include the Corn Eating Contest.

I'm just starting to get warmed up

Onionboy is making sure his are completely clean

Again Onionboy making sure his ears are spic and span while I'm in the back kicking um... butt

Yes! Victory! I wonder how long it takes to get to the bathroom.

Chris got second place. He still can't stop his mouth from moving

Jamborama Part One and Beyond

Well we just got done with another Jamborama. I had a very different reaction to this Jamborama then last year. It just wasn't as much fun for me. It did however; have very good moments. I beat my record of 12 ears of corn in 10 minutes to 13 ears in 8 minutes, One of the leads from Minnesota said I was a good Balboa dancer (I didn't think I was), a friend bought me dinner, and I learned some ways to make some moves I already know more interesting. I tried really hard to have more fun. My mom told me my reaction could be because everything was new and exciting last year. Maybe that's it. I did enjoy seeing some of the out of towners come back. I took some of my favorite pictures from jittercliffs photos. I hope to steal some corn eating contest pictures soon as well. These will do for now.

Thursday night at Jazz on the Green

Two of my favorite people at after hours (dancing from Midnight to 5am)

Our instructors doing the Big Apple

I thought these two did the best in the Jack and Jill contest

Functioning on 4 hours of sleep

I'm sitting in the back. Can you see me?

The Weekend Continued

My parents also went dancing this weekend. I haven't seen them in these outfits since I was about 6 years old. My mom once again told me the story of my first steps and how much I was spoiled by all the dancers. I'm not surprised I love this so much. This was the best part of my weekend.

South Dakota

A group of us went down to the "Kleven cabin" last weekend. It was in South Dakota. This was my first time in South Dakota. At first I didn't think we would get there in one piece but after 5 stops we managed to get there just fine. We killed some wild animals and ate like royalty. It was a good trip. Here are some of the pictures.

Here is my dinner

One of the views on top of the tower we climbed

Hi Hugh!!

The celebration up top

"Are we going to have to climb back down"

"Look at that lovely wood", Have ever seen wood this wonderful" "Yeah and the bolts are equally amazing"

I think this is the first fire I've ever made!!!

"Now don't tell "Onionboy" we put this in the fridge." "Cheers!"

What happens when you put 4 mentos in a bottle of pop?

I thought this was one the cutest dogs I've ever seen. Next time I get dog they're going to have big ears.

The fearless crew! Where is Hugh?

We stopped at Sioux Falls on the way back

Did you guys take another group picture? What's taking you so long!

This is my favorite

Sara wanted to know if I saw her falling down

Sara- "I made it through my first camping trip"

Shoot! I couldn't put up any bad pictures of Jenny!

I'm Grace Kelly!

My roommate sent me an email quiz to find out what movie star you resembled the most. It's scary how accurate this is. I wish I knew how to put a link on so you could find out to.

(35-42 points) You are GRACE KELLY:
You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all
you need to enjoy yourself. You are serious about all
commitments and are a family person. You call your
Mom every Sunday, and never forget a Birthday. Don't
let your passion for romance get confused with the real

It would be cool if they had a quiz to find out what movie star you are most compatible with.

Cooking Peas

My friend called me up on Friday and invited me to go with her to the chiropractor. We went in Saturday morning. I had never been to a chiropractor before but it turned out I really needed to go. He aligned my back and cracked my neck. I appreciated this guy's honesty. I must have heard several times "you're in bad shape". I didn't think I could make so much noise. I've had a pain in my neck for a couple months and now it's gone!!
My back and shoulder however; are a different story. They feel worse then before. I've been putting a bag frozen peas on to get the swelling down and taking muscle relaxers. The peas are softer then ice but just as cold. They help it feel better. My friend told me that it's normal for me to be reacting this way so I'm not worried. Maybe this will help my dancing. :-)

Happy Birthday Flapper!!!

Flapper had his 15th birthday today!! I had his parent's when I was little. I can't believe that it's been this long. This little guy has been through everything with me. I gave him a honey stick to share with his roommate Baby.

Dance With Me

I've been listening to this song tonight. I thought my Christian friends might enjoy the words. If you are not a Christian you might enjoy it to. It's called "May I Have This Dance?" on Julaine's CD may i have this dance?

May I have this dance Lord with the one that saved my soul.
A lifetime of following your lead, Lord take control.
Take me in your arms Jesus. Let me hold the hand pierced for me.
May I have this dance following your lead.
Here in this place. I want to stay.
Were I can see your face up close and hear you breath.
Keep me in your arms Jesus. Let me hold the hand pierced for me.
May I have this dance eternally

May I have this dance, child with the one that I died for.
I'll show you many, many things and if you ask I'll give you more.
Come into my arms child, You'll be loved and you will be free.
To dance across this land just you and me.
