So, I have zilch excuses for my extended absence. But thus I have begun my hardest semester to date as of yesterday, 1-10-11. I have sold my soul to the dollar-eating, time-gulping ogre dressed in Ute red.. But, I had a great break, full of tinies, great parental doting, and.....oh wait, what is it that normally follows when I discuss going to southern Utah...? Oh yeah, the phenomenal weather. Well, sucks the weather was sucky balls, huh? I froze my non-existent gonads off. I forgive you Hurricane, but snow? Really? On my break?

I also don't have too many pics, or good ones. I always let the sisters take all the pics and then I always forget to steal them. Blasted wretch. But just make them invite you to their annoyingly private blogs and you can see cute glimpses of me occasionally.

Anywho, I am going in reverse order here. So, I am going to a Jazz game tomorrow!! Thank you senior and thank you Jesus for the celebration of your birth that equates in me receiving great things, pertaining but not specified to Jazz tickets. But, we did get some lovely $5 nose bleeds for the game against...(can't remember). It was great fun, Judy and BJD (Bradley James Herrara) came and it was pretty funny seeing Judy, sweet Judy explain the game and such to BJD. I love that freak, Judy, but BJD is neat too.

Judy attempting to be mad at the refs, or someone, she wasn't sure who she was supposed to be mad at.
Can't you just smell the sweat this close to the action? We couldn't either

Speaking of getting close to the action, as per usual Lee tried to sneak closer, which she succeeded in, initially. But, as brett bradley, BJD and Judy tried to follow her to the coveted 11th row a guard saw their nervousness and hurriedly escorted them back to the 10945th row. Soooo funny. Lee was pissed the rest of the game. She blames Judy, naturally.

Here we have my Christmas break. Meg, tons of her. She was my sidekick the whole time. I have a couple winner photos of this freak. Yes, she is showing crack in most of them. Here she is giving her best rendition of 'hanna tanna.' I hear topless concerts are all the rage these days.

Oh, well lookie who it is. Just me giving ya my cameo. OH!!! did I mention I got a new computer!!!!??? He's beautiful, polite, chivalrous and doesn't dose off when I'm telling it all my stories and feeding it my homework. I have named him Mumford. I hope this is a long, fruitful relationship. I'm now a MAC gal. I feel so trendy and poetic already. I can go to hip cafes in SLC and blog about political issues and feel legit. Too bad I don't drink the trendy coffee drinks. I guess it's not my time to fit in. Someday....

How cute is linnie. I thought she looked like such a cute grammy here.
My mother is great. She is the MOST selfless person I know. She is even funny occasionally, don't tell her I said. She will be insufferable for Bruce.
*Funny side note: (technically this whole thing is random side notes, but whatev) Linnie learned what 'narcissistic meant, well thought she learned, and called every person that did anything she didn't like a narcissist. No matter their crime, narcissism was the culprit.

The flooding was crazy. I know I shouldn't, but I do love a good flooding every now and again. Sorry all you peeps who lost some serious christmas cheer over losing your house in the river. I just can't help myself. Plus it gives all those siblings of mine some solid work, so 'don hate it!'

Oh that? That's just meg reading the National Geographic in her underwear and rollerblades. I, of course was joining her in my similar get up, but I just escaped the photo. Damn.

I got to finally play with my bff Eric boy. I love those shields. They make me chuckle, and even better they like my jokes. God love em. Erica is doing crazy good on her track team at BYU currently, FYI. So go watch if you're in the hood and don't mind being surrounded by a million flawless bodies who think you are scum in your jeans and flabby calves. Also there's the inevitable boredom watching the mile run waiting to watch her do her stuff. Other than that the track meets are neat. JK, I actually like em....and the flawless bodies.

One more tid bit. Remember how I'm teaching stuff this semester? I'm teaching indoor cycling, weight lifting and personal training. I'm nervous but sufficiently excited. So, if it interests anyone, I was thinking I would be willing to post the work outs I write up for class on this here blog if anyone would like some additional work out tips or lay outs. Good idea? Or did you slightly vomit through your nose. That hurts when it happens. But let me know, I'd love to hear feedback and such from my work outs and see if you like/hate them so I may improve upon my shhhkills.

I am excited about school, but I am already soooo tired from being on campus from 6 am to 6 pm. Disgusting. Besides teaching I am also taking
Womens Nutrition and Health (super excited about this one)
Advanced Human Nutrition
ESS 4800 (teaching class)
Aging and Exercise
Training and Planning - did my teacher make fun of me the entire period? PSSHH why would he? Yes, yes he did. Did I walk into the wrong classroom and sit in the the teachers literal chair accidentally on my way to this class? Yes, yes I did.

Rachelle! I truly think you and I have a lot in common... from roller blading accidents to switching to Macs, I’m sure we’re soul sisters. To answer your question, I am actually a Creative-Writing major, which is a sublet of the English major genre. So hopefully I’m going to be some kind of a writer. Kind of like Stephanie Meyer, except I’ll make sure they cast attractive people when they buy the rights to my book and make movies out of them.

But really, any kind of writing makes me happy. As an exercise expert, what are YOU planning on doing? Being my personal training for free? Because that would be awesome.

That is my girl!!! How funny are those pictures. She sure is full of it. Glad to see you are still alive. When did you get a computer and with what money? :) Can't wait to spend a week with you in paradise.

Nothing on Gus! More lesbian comments on Shields. No please on workout schedules unless it fits in my evening ritual of 3 double stuff oreos and a glass of milk. 6 if it was a long day.


Ty * April said...

p.s. I would like training tips. Although Kyle's evening routine would be nice. :)

Just remember, too much exercise is just as bad as people that diet or have eating disorders. Moderation, Shelby. Don't want you to overdue it. Mainly because I want other people to look as flabby as me on the beaches of Hawaii! Way to go on walking in to the wrong class - you are more like mother than you think. :)

I'd be totally fine chipping in a few grandiose ideas to improve the workouts you post for your readers. No problem. Really. Glad to help.
