Lets Camp

Filed under: family,for fun,my world — Kathy @ 4:40 pm

I thought I’d show you some hot hot fashion. My daughter Jo and niece Pi graciously agreed to help out at fashion week in Bryant Park recently and this is a backstage shot.

Jo came out of her shell in a turtleneck top and added a happy note with her accordian pleated skirt. The lastest news for Kathy is this black and white and red all over print dress. Kathy feels good about her pill box hat, and carries a snappy alligator bag. Pi turns fashion inside out with her slip-over sweater! These gals really know their fashion!

Now, you are going to have to look very closely to see some of these exquisite fashion details in this photo, so go ahead and click for a larger view of the genius designs. I’m sure you can find a fashion idea to use yourself at your next gala, dahlings!

Find the guy poking his eye out

Filed under: family,food,for fun — Kathy @ 1:33 am

Matt and I headed south today to watch Utah State get slaughtered by Boise State. There were probably more Boise fans there than Aggie fans. We did not feel like the minority in our blue and orange. It’s kind of painful to watch the Aggies. I feel sorry for them because they are on such a long losing streak. Our friend Van, who is a student at USU, asked us to bring him an orange hoodie to wear, but he still cheered for the Aggies. Matt, on the other hand, is a true Boise State fan, having been a student there.

This evening brought round two of “Adaptation.” A good mother goes every night to see her daughter in a play, right? Fortunately for me, this play makes you think, so a second and third viewing isn’t tedious at all. And when your daughter is this cute in her costume, all the better.


Rosie as the Mother

That vintage dress Rosie is wearing came from an estate sale of my sixth grade home room teacher, Mr. Boden, after his death. Maybe his wife or one of his daughters originally wore it. On Rosie, it’s killer. And she is killer in the production.

After the show, Dad and I decided to try out dinner at a new place in town. I give them credit at least for having a website. The place is decorated like a 50’s diner, and the food is not half bad, the veggies were fresh grilled, the mashed potatoes were real, and the butter was too. Plus, and this is a plus, I think they are the only game in town for breakfast. Ooh, I kind of feel like a food critic right now!

Top 10 Observations today:

10. That obnoxious guy rule applies in every stadium at every game.

9. If Boise State plays USU, I cheer for Boise.

8. Hardly anyone cheers for USU.

7. If Boise State were to play BYU, I’d cheer for BYU.

6. This town smells like a burning haystack.

5. A burning haystack might have more customers than the restaurant we were at for dinner.

4. Pressure washers can baffle really good attorneys.

3. A really good pressure washer-er probably doesn’t make squat.

2. Maybe the pressure washer-er should go put out the burning haystack.

1. I make squat.

We will fight, day or night

Filed under: for fun — Kathy @ 11:04 am

Two football games in one week at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Tonight it was a beautiful evening for football. Chilly but not freezing. A nice 27-22 win over TCU. And I scored a program so I can study those player’s names and numbers! Some in my family have accused me of being a casual fan, or not fully committed. Come, come now. I never used those words to describe myself. I’m perfectly serious and committed to my football shallowness. I’m a little bit fascinated by the ladies who sit directly in front of us at every game. I think they are so sweet and cute.


I hope when I’m a great great grandma I’m representing like this!



One likes the old school colors. The other has hair to aspire to!

Top 10 Observations at the game tonight:

10. One half the crowd came after kick-off.

9. The Horned Frog is the ugliest mascot on the planet.

8. Cougars eat fried Horned Frog legs for dinner.

7. The most obnoxious mouth always sits right behind you.

6. Camera men like to wear shorts even when it’s 40 degrees.

5. Wearing shorts will not insure that you get the shot.

4. Paper airplanes fly better at night.

3. The BYU players do way too much cheerleading.

2.  Maybe if mormons were drinkers they would cheer louder.

1. Those Texas cops could have carried water or something!

High in the Blue

Filed under: family,for fun — Kathy @ 11:26 am

Shallow. That’s the kind of BYU football fan I am. I don’t know the players’ names and numbers. I can’t remember all the teams in the conference. I’m very easily distracted watching an afternoon football game in that big stadium. Because it’s full of goofy mormons, jiggling cheerleaders, and tooting band nerds. (Their horns, tooting their horns.) But I like going to these games in spite of all that. It’s just fun, that’s all. Especially on a day like today when the sun shines, but it’s not too hot and the cougar players vanquish the foe, and it’s easy to forget about your problems and be a winner right along with those boys.

Here I am with my oldest son, Matt.


So, all you passionate sports buffs, that’s how it is for us shallow fans. And then we go to the BYU bookstore and shop.
