Food Blog

Ok, so I've had some requests to make a food/cooking blog. I haven't decided if I will make a new blog or have occassional food posts on this one. If, however, I decide to go ahead with this, just know that I will most likely make a new one because cooking doesn't go along with the sassyness of I'm Just Sayin'. Also, that the post will be few and far between, as I cook something worth blogging about. It wont be a Julie and Julia type thing because most of the recipes will be my own. When they aren't I will give the correct person credit! I don't pretend to be an awesome cook, to tell the honest truth before college I rarely if ever cooked anything, and often messed it up somehow to which my parents can attest. I just started playing with stuff and found that I love it, and am fairly good about it! I haven't had any complaints so far. Plus I would much rather cook for others than myself. So, all who are reading this please leave your opinion on the comments section. Thanks much!

Working Class Girl

So, as you might have guessed from the title of this post I am now a working girl. Who'da thunk it? Naturally I wowed them with my knowledge, experience, and speech skills. Not really. Maybe the whole knowledge and experience thing. Anyways so, there is a lady in both my phonetics and language development class. We talked but never really too much. She sits like 3 rows in front of me and always gets better grades than me. So obviously, I would avoid her because I tend to put my foot in my mouth and say the wrong things. I really do have a problem with this. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't have a filter. I say whatever comes, so the fact that they hired me after they spoke to me for 40 minutes is a miracle in and of itself.

Where was I? Oh. Ok. So the lady, Alisa asked me randomly if I wanted a job; to which my reply was yes. She gave me a brief job description, and another lady's email to send her my resume. I rummaged up my resume (which needed some twiqueing because I haven't used it since high school... don't judge) and sent it to her. She almost immediately called me and set up an interview for the next day.

I was surprisingly not nervous at the interview, and just went with the flow. At first I didn't think that I would get it. I received a call that same evening, that I didn't answer because my phone was in a different room, saying that they would call me tomorrow because they hadn't made the decision yet. I thought for sure that I was going to get booted. It was like the "I'm telling you I will call you tomorrow to tell you that we didn't pick you so it looked like we struggled over the decision to let you go" type call. ANYWHO, so she, Jami, called me earlier this afternoon and asked me if I would like to accept the position. I said yes. Inside I was screaming "YES! YES! YES! WOOT WOOT!!" just because this is almost what I will do with my degree so obviously I love it, and want some experience.

My first day is on Monday, Dec. 6th where I will be trained, go through a background check, and be fingerprinted. The process is so extensive because I will be working with kids. But not only that, I will be working with kids who have disabilities. I will be working as a developmental therapist to children, adolescents, and adults with any type of developmental disability, often one on one. Maybe they are afraid I would kidnap them or something? Doesn't matter 'cause I am too excited! I start shadowing with another therapist on Wednesday. I can't remember his name but he is around my age or older (20's for sure) and is a student, so we should get along great. Unless he is a weirdy. I seem to attract those.... hmm... maybe I should look into that....

So be very excited for me! Cause I get to help kids with disabilities! Which is important!

It's My BIRTHDAY!!!!!

So, as it is December the 1st, my birthday is coming up in 10 days! TEN DAYS!!!! So, I thought I would share my thoughts on birthday rules!

Rule #1. Just because it is called a "birthday suit" does NOT mean that you can wear it on your birthday....or any other day for that matter. Keep your pants on. Literally.

Rule #2..... hmmm.... it seems I have run out of rules. I guess it's just the one then. Don't run around naked on your birthday.

I'm just sayin'


Come on, seriously gentlemen. Why is it that when you touch a boy he automatically assumes that you want a relationship, and want to marry him? Is it not possible to be an affectionate person, and just want to be friends and take the time to get to know someone? Apparently, we ladies have magic cooties that scare a boy when we come in contact with them. No, we are not poisonous, and it is quite possible that we can be outgoing people. Also NO, this does not mean that we are coming on to you in anyway, shape or form.

I must have an issue with entitled men. What is it with guys that makes them think that they are so amazing and heavenly that it would be impossible for us not to want to bow down at his feet and be a doormat? Do I look like the type of person who would let you walk all over me? Use me? Dangle something shiny in front of me I'll follow you anywhere! NOT. GOING. TO. HAPPEN. Honestly, what self respecting woman would let someone do that to her?

BOYS: We are intelligent women. We have brains and our own thoughts, feelings, and views on things. We will not adopt yours just because you want us to. And more often than not, we really aren't coming on to you. We are just being kind, and friendly. . We need MEN!! Men who can handle a smart, beautiful, spiritual woman who can stand on her own feet. However, when we do show interest in you and you get scared and run away like a little sissy girl, that interest is gone. Well SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!  Heaven forbid we actually be interested in you. There is no need to be frightened by us, we don't have cooties. And we promise that we will not drag you to the temple and force you to marry us.

Trying To Play a Duet By Myself

So I know that most of my posts are funny, and jokey, and witty. But today, on a more serious note I wanted to talk about life. Life is....(insert word that suits your view). Serisously though, life can be a number of things. It's like a song. There are parts of a song that go really well for you. You hit the note, key, whatever, and you just feel fantastic about how your song is going right? Then there are also high parts that initially seem daunting, but when you finally hit them you feel soooo good! And you are quite literally high
(no pun intended) on life!

However, there are also points in a song that are low, and also difficult to manuver through, but have you noticed that it isn't the high notes in a song that make it rich, it is the low ones. Low points give a song, and life, perspective, richness, and meaning. I am so grateful for the low points in my life. I have become a better person and have come to understand and appreciate life because of them. The difficult part is realizing that low points, and high points for that matter, are necessary to fulfil our potential in life.

Another thing about fulfilling our potential in life is that our Heavenly Father did not intend for us to live life alone. He knew that we would not be able to do it. It's like sitting at the piano, staring at a piece of music and someone comes up and says, "Hey, why don't you play that song?" And you want to, you really do, but you can't because it is intended to be a duet, and you can't do a duet by yourself, obviously. So in relation to life, up until the point when we find our companion we are working on our part of the duet; perfecting it and making twigues so that when we find him/her we can blend. My mother always told me that you aren't a good singer until you can learn how to blend. And what a marvelous blessing, and experience it will be when we have to opportunity to blend our lives with another, making a new life, and starting the duet.

So, the point of this post is that while we need to work on our part, we cannot play a duet by ourselves.

This post is a tribute to beautiful men! Just plain gorgeousness, that I feel the need to admire. For beauty like that should be admired! I couldn't decide who should go in which order so they are randomly dispersed! Are you ready for this? Cause I'm not sure that you are!!
This is Ashton, and yes I think he is handsome! You can find this man in a number of movies! A few of my favorites are The Guardian, Killers, What Happens in Vegas, and others.
MMMMMMM This is Christopher! He is so handsome!! You can find him in Princess Diaries 2, Star Trek, Just My Luck, and a new movie called Unstoppable!
Oh goodness, this is Jensen. He is.... well just look at him! Mmmmhmm! You can find Jensen in Supernatural! Only one of the best TV shows ever! Special thanks to Keisha Rae for introducing me, and getting me hooked on Supernatural and Jensen. Keisha, I'm still going to name my fish Padeleski! :)
This is Jude, and I tend to have mixed feelings about him depending on what movie he is in. I do think he is handsome and I liked him in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, The Holiday, and Sherlock Holmes.
And this is Patrick, and he is in Grey's Anatomy. He is the handsome Dr. Derek Shepherd (McDreamy)! Yup he's an attractive man! Anyways, he is also in Can't Buy Me Love (a very old 80's movie, he's like 18 or 19 in this movie)  Made of Honor, Freedom Writers, and there is one more but I can't remember!

There are also real live handsome men, whom you cannot find in movies, but they are still handsome nontheless! This handsome little boy is my baby brother, Peyton Jones. He is most definitely a ladies man!

and of course the other men in my life! Dad, Travis (25), McKay (17), and Kody (16)! All amazing men!! :)

Oh and I cannot forget my beautiful nephew, Deacon Jones! He is a heartbreaker as well!

This concludes my tribute to the handsome men of my life, both directly and indirectly! Someday, maybe soon, there will be another handsome man in my life. Who knows?! :)

They Tempt...In A Wiley Fashion

Why is it that when you have things to do, other things that weren't as tempting before, nearly drag you away from whatever it was that you intended to do? Seriously, they are wiley tempters....they tempt in a wiley fashion( courtesy of What Happens In Vegas). For instance, when I should be sifting through research for my final research project, I am tempted to do laundry. I HATE DOING LAUNDRY!!!! Honestly, I don't understand why I can't stand laundry, I just don't like it. I like to clean. Especially vaccuuming.... I love that. It's oddly relaxing, which is why I clean when I am upset, but I just don't like laundry. It's of the DEVIL!!!

OOOOOhhh speaking of things that are of the devil, STATISTICS!!!!!. If I knew how to make that red I would. Ugh statistics is seriously the bane of my existance. Oh that ryhmes!! Also, sweaty people... ew... that is seriously of the devil. Especially when they feel the need to be close to me when they are covered in their nasty, smelly, bodily secretion. *shudders*. Ugh that makes me want to gag a little bit!

Wait how did I get here? I was talking about distractions. Apparently I distract myself! Haha! Maybe I am just easily distracted and that's why I can't focus... who knows!

Anyways back to the point. Things that tempt in a wiley fashion.... hmmm... Dang it, I can't think of anything now because I got distracted.... shoot...That's stupid!

Top Embarrassing Moments of the Month

So, I started this on halloween. Needless to say I became distracted and never posted it, so 11 days late, and in honor of October being over, I thought I would share withh y'all my top number of embarrassing moments this month. There is no set number because I wont be able to decide which to pick yes there are that many to choose from. It's part of my charm, don't judge.). Hmm.. that looks like a nose.. do you see it?! .). tehe.. ok seriously...

1. Ahh the coveted number one spot of the list! Well this earned it's spot today the 30th of October. Which inspired me to post this post thing. SO, I was over at my study buddy's house for a little stats party, and I drove myself there from FHE. It is freezing here in Pocatello, literally. The wind has been blowing non stop since yesterday and its attrocious! After our meeting, I got in my car and drove across the apartments to my building. I parked the car, ran up the 3 flights of stairs and into my apartment only to realize that it wasn't my apartment! *GASP*and some *BLUSHING!*. The first thing i realize is that my door handle is different, and the sign isn't on the door, and there is a boy in the hall.... only to realize that I only made it to building 4, which oddly comes before 5. Needless to say while they got a chuckle, I was embarrassed.

2. Number 2 happened in the laundry room. There was a guy who came to get his stuff out of the dryer and I was there folding my laundry. He was wearing one of those chain things on his wallet that were "cool" (not really) in the 90's. I sniggered to myself, and continued to fold. Well, a pair of his scooby doo boxers (no joke) fell and caught on his chain without him noticing. I thought I would be nice and tell him. So I said, "Hey your underwear is hanging out..." and to my astonishment he pulled his pants down a little further. SO the gloves were off and I said, "aren't you a little old to be wearing scooby doo?" He looked embarrassed and like he was going to say something but instead he just laughed and walked out. I thought I had won until I noticed my bra was hanging out of the dryer and a pair of underwear was on the floor... yeah...

Those are the most embarrassing, there were others but for the sake of my pride I will not disclose them.

However, I will tell you that earlier in November, I was getting off the bus going home and I looked up and saw the guy whose apartment I walked into in October. I saw him and he saw me, then he laughed and shook nhis head. Needless to say I was quite embarrassed, and blushed. For those of you who know me well, you would know that it is hard to embarrass me seeing as how I am usually the one to make other people embarrassed and blush.

Letter to the Cookie Makers

To whom it may concern,
It has come to my attention that the Keebler brand of cookies has taken in upon themsleves to start making "Samoas." Yes, Samoas as in the girl scout cookies. I have a few things to say about such a travesty!

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?! NOW I AM GOING TO GET FAT!!!

Gosh, those cookie makers only think of themselves! They are my favorite! Yesterday as I was stolling through the local Winco, I see them! So I proceed to put them in MY cart. Silently thinking to myself that they will be my "therapy treats." ** Do you remember the old Doritos slogan? You can't eat just one? Well let me tell you that there are 16 cookies in a box, and they were gone in 2 days....

yeah tell me about it...

Well now my sugar is all kinds of crazy, not knowing what to do with all the extra sugar so I crash! Rude! The problem seems to have an easy fix, don't buy them again. Well easy for you to say mister! Gosh!

Well off to the tredmill to run an extra 2 miles for the next week. (As if the 2 miles I run anyways are doin anything for me, and my veluptuous hips!!)

I'm Just Sayin...

** For those of you who don't know what "therapy treats" are, its pretty self explanitory. They are what girls have stashed or go buy when they are having troubles. Mine is (not counting these cookies) mint oreos with ben and jerrys half baked ice cream. :) mmmmm...

Fall? Fall what? Down?

Seeing as how the first day of autumn was 2 weeks ago, and it is still flippin hot I feel the need to whine and complain. I love the fall! It is my favorite time of the year!! Unfortunately, fall seems to be the shortest season of all, and winter is the longest... go figure. BUT, it is so hot I don't even know it is fall right now! Fall down maybe, though I do that more in the winter...and the spring... ok I fall down a lot. Don't judge, it's rude. Here are the many reasons I like fall

1. As mentioned before, I have an issue with sweat. In the fall, it is colder. Which means it isn't as hot. Which means less sweat! And this ladies and gentlemen makes for a very happy Mable. :)

2. Boys tend to wear their pants higher around their toosh!! It is so nice to not have to look at the ground when I walk, for fear of seeing someones bum!

3.The colors are so beautiful!! I feel so close to Heavenly Father in the Fall and Winter. Also in the spring when flowers start to bloom. In the summer it is too hot for me to see anything. :)

3.5 Not really 4 because it links to 3. The colorful CRUNCHY leaves. I love the sound of them crunching under my feet, and blowing in the wind.

4. I have a very good excuse to bake things more than normal! And make the house smell like cinnamon!

5. I can snuggle up in my blanket with hot chocolate and no one looks at me strangely (Yes, I snuggle in a blanket in the summer too... its a comfort thing...again, dont judge.)

There are more but I am having trouble deciding which ones to put in here... hmm... Well we will just say that this is the end for now.

The Hardest Words to Say

There is a phrase in the English language that no one likes to say, but inevitably, we all say it at some time. And usually to the same person.

Just cause it will be fun, guess what those words are...

Okay, time is up. For those of you who were thinking "I love you," (thanks I love you too! (: ) that wasn't it. The hardest words to say are "You were right." Seriously. I don't know if it is a pride thing that we don't like to be wrong, but those words are hard for me to say. Yet, I find myself saying them more and more now-a-days, and always to the same person.

My mom.

All those years growing up I thought that she was crazy. I knew best, and I wouls just smile and nod saying in my head that she had something in her teeth as she was lecturing me (mom, if you are reading this.... just kidding). I never thought that later I would have to tell her that she had been right all along. I always thought she would be the one to tell me I was right.

However, moms usually are right. Even when they don't hear it. If you are a mom and have a stubborn daughter like me, just know that she knows your right. So this is to all you moms out there with your awesome advice, you were right.

*Baking soda really does make your whites whiter!
*I do regret it when I don't get ready and see a gorgeous man.
*Red and white aren't supposed to be washed together.
*Clothes go in the closet, not on the floor.
*Smiling does make your day better.
* Someday we will need you (okay, everyday)

and just as an additional love note,

*Your advice is most important.
*Your hugs and kisses are sweeter than everyone elses
*We secretly love that you don't fix everything for us
*When you say something, we really are paying attention

I love you mom, and all those other mom's out there! There almost a whole General Conference session on how important you are, and trust me, we were paying attention.

The Trail..

One of my amazing MG friends has a hilarious blog! The other day she wrote a post titled "Lara Was Here." It was genius, and I thought I would to the same type of thing. They say that immitation is the higest form of flattery. Here's to you Lara.

You can tell when I've been in the

*Kitchen* by the dishes that I have most likely left on the counter. I am probably still in the room, but my dishes only made it half way to the sink.

*Bathroom* by the fact that my make up and hair things from my morning routine are not put away. My towel is probably on the floor where I left it.

*Living Room* by my homework that is strewn all across the floor, the table, the couch, the lovesac, or whereever I happened to start my homework that day.

and finally...

*Bedroom* This one is simple. My bed is probably not made, and my pajamas are in the middle of the floor where I changed that morning. Also, there might be a few outfit changes if i was in too big of a hurry to hang them back up after I decided that was not what I wanted to wear.

If per chance I happen to clean up after myself 100% of the time, (don't raise your eyebrows at me, it has been known to happen) there is still one for sure and certain way you can tell if I was there at some point. My roommate, and wubba, Keisha Rae can attest to this, for it bugged her endlessly. I leave bobby pins EVERYWHERE! This is no joke. Sometimes I decide to take my hair out whereever I am, and the pins never make it back to the bathroom. I even bought a cute soap box for them. Yet, to no avail, they are left everywhere.

I leave a trail of bobby pins. If you see this in the forest somewhere, folow it! I may have been kidnapped by a stranger and dragged into the forest to my death!

I'm Just Sayin'...

There are a few things I feel need addressing today.

The first of which being boys pants. Seriously, pull them up!! If you feel the need to wear them so low that your whole but is showing, why wear them at all?
** This is a rhetorical question. PLEASE continue to wear your pants. Just pull them up alright?

2. When someone makes the effort to smile at you, smile back. This is common courtesy. Learn it. Love it. Use it!

3. When you ask someone on a date, and then ask them to pay for themselves, be prepared for a dirty look. This is not proper dating etiquette. Unless of course you added the disclaimer that this date would be dutch.

4. If you have to cough, please do not cough on me. Turn your head and cough into your sleeve. This is also common courtesy. I was having a good day until you felt the need to besprinkle me with your nasty buggers. Thanks.

And finally, the epitome of all that is holy,

5. If you are sweaty....DO.NOT.TOUCH.ME. Please realize that I have a phobia of other people's sweat. Don't flippin' touch me when you are sweaty. Next time I might seriously punch you.

Stupid Doctors

I have been feeling sick lately, so this week I went to the student health clinic on campus. If I am paying 534 a semester for this insurance, I might as well get my moneys worth right? Well I am hypoglycemic (which I already knew) so they thought maybe I could be developing diabetes or something like that. They drew some blood and told me to come back Wednesday. I came back and the nurse took me to an exam room. She said she was going to go get my results and shed be right back. I was OK with that, just hanging out. Well... she came back with this serious look on her face and said the doctor wanted to talk to me. Naturally, i start freaking out!! I remember the dream i had Monday night about getting told i was dying...that flashes through my head and i really start to freak. The nurse takes me back to the other room and takes my blood pressure. Hmm.. its pretty high she says... WELL DUH!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm pretty sure i knew my pressure was high. so the doctor comes in and sits across from me, folds his hands, sighs and looks up at me. i swear at this point I'm about to cry when he tells me i have a sinus infection. I wanted to punch him in the face for scaring me like that!!! GOSH!!!! don't medical people have to learn to control their faces or something?!?!?!?!?!!?!?! stupid doctors! no wonder i get anxious at a Dr's office! well, i needed to rant and i feel better :)

Butterflies, and Seasons of Life

So, my language development sends out these emails with proverbs and such, and friday her little tidbit was this quote, "just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly," i thought about that and I decided that I really like that. I feel like that sometimes. Whenever I feel like I am really struggling, and I dont understand why the Lord would do that to me, I become a butterfly, and I get understanding. The world becomes new to me. Like the caterpillar, I leave behind the old me, and pick up the new life with a better Courtney Mae Jones. Different from a caterpillar,however, in that I have the opportunity to become a butterfly as many times as I want! Isnt that amazing!?!?! This realization got me to thinking about my sunday school lesson yesterday. The bishop taught and he talked about the seasons of life and figuring out what season you are in, and living withing that season while also realizing that there are seasons within seasons. I am happy to say that so far I am enjoying this new season of my life at ISU, and look forward to becoming a butterfly over and over again. :)

Day 4 In Pocatello

Well, here I am in Pocatello Idaho for like the first time ever in my life, other than passing through. I'm aware that its kind of pathetic but non the less it is my first time here. I have met all of my roommates but one, another Courtney (wont that be interesting). They are all really nice and I have a feeling that this year is going to be a really good year! I'm trying to keep perspective and not miss Logan, and Utah State as much, but this new experience will be good! Change is good.... right?

New Beginnings

This summer has been the summer of changes and new beginnings. I have done an inventory of my life and cut a lot of thing out that I used to think were importnant, but realized I was sadly mistaken. I had the realization that I will be 20 in 4 short months, and that I haven't done any of the things with my life that I thought I would. Sooo, welcome to the new CourtneyMae Jones! Life is too short not to live it! Almost everything has changed from my original plan. New school, new major, new roommates, new brother, new hair style, new friends, new calling, and most importantly, a new outlook on life. I'm determined to be positive about things in my life and let the Lord drive the bus. :) yay me!

Upside Down & Summertime

Well, I must say that I am a horrible blogger. My roommate Keisha did it and i though it would be fun, but my life is utterly boring. And, as soon as it gets interesting, my life gets turned upside down. I am determined never to plan out anything in my life again (not really) because everytime i do i get thrown for a loop!! Gosh! But i must say that it always works out better through the loop than i think it would have if i had done it my way. So I have been home for about a month now, and i am living with my grandparents on my mothers side. I am a nanny, which i LOVE!! Its the best job ever. Hard sometimes, ok alot of the time, but kids arent supposed to be easy. If they were, when would you learn? I have alot of time to read to. I love to read. I forgot how much i like to read, how obsessed i can get, and how many books i can read in a week! ha! I am also taking institute which i love!!!!!!!!!!! I have my old seminary teacher brother mcclure. it is the best class ever. So.. that pretty much sounds like a fun summer huh?! i think so!! ooo and im growing my hair out! its almost past the dredded awful middle stage!! onve it gets past there then i wont be so mad at it! :)

Peyton Barlow Jones

He's finally here! My baby brother Peyton Barlow Jones! Sadly, he has heart problems, and is going to Primary Children's next week to have open heart surgery. He has many heart problems, but as of now he is stable and it isnt life threatening. But he is the cuttest darn thing ever! He looks like my daddy! :)

Boredom, Borders, and Pita Pit (too bad that wasn't a b..)

Tonight i discovered that i, Courtney Mae Jones, should not be left alone for long periods of time. This is bad, very bad! For example, when you leave me alone, i become bored, and start to drive around in an effort to be out of my apartment. where do i go you ask? Where?! WHERE!?!?! I go to the worst possible place i could go.... a bookstore. Why is that the worst? Because i inevitably will buy at least one, if not more books. So i walk in and am perusing...Do i buy anything? of course not... ok maybe...yes i did! shoot! Not only did i buy A book... i bought THREE books.. shoot darn! oooh but thats not all! If only that were all... *sigh* thinking about dinner, and how (lazy i am) much i dont want to cook for myself, i go to panda, of couse they dont take checks!!! why on esarth would they do that?!? Because i wanted it, so therefore, they MUST deny my only form of payment because i have not recieved my new debit card, from a bank that shall remain nameless... so i go to pita pit (which i thoroughly enjoyed, thank you for asking) where i lose my keys. I get all the way to the apt and have to go back... for those who are wondering about the car with no keys situation... i am telepathic and can start the car with my mind... haha jk i just know a trick!! someone needs to learn to entertain herself... oohh that would be me!

a snowy day in logan town

ok so there is this guy on campus and whenever it snows he comes and builds stuff! there are like three octopus' on the quad (middle of campus)! its so fun! so keisha and i went up to take pictures but it was pretty warm that day (its so sad in logan when you wake up and say that its 36 degrees and everyone says "wow thats sooo warm!!!")and so mr octopus was melting! i had to introduce myself before he joined frosty and melted!
the "A" is a reputable place on the USU campus. its where you can become a "true aggie". on a full moon if you get kissed on the A then you are a true aggie. its a huge thing up here and there is usually a line. i am not a true aggie but its fun to take a picture on the A! :) kissing a stranger for bragging rights isnt my thing but hey, it is utah!

Fun in Park City

soo much fun! my roommate Keisha and our friends Cami and Kamille and myself of course had a random extravagnaza!!! we went to Park City for Sundance Film Festival and some fun shopping. Also, we just wanted to get away from school and Logan and everything!! it was suuuuper fun! we stayed in Cami's parents house in wyoming! it was the best ever! just with the girls watching Casino Royale with that beautiful man... Bond, James Bond! :) mmmmmm yummy
So we had lunch at a pizza place on main street in the heart of Park City. it was called main street piza and noodle or something! absolutely delicious!! i loved it! it was pretty spendy but hey, your in park city, expect to pay a little more! oooh fyi we have sunglasses on to keep the snow out of our eyes! it was so much fun! and pretty sure we might have seen kevin costner. very cute for an old man! :) hehe
