I haven't blogged in awhile. Not for lack of blog-worthy events happening in my life, but because I am in the midst of so many wonderful things that I want a conclusion on before I write all about it. I guess. Not quite sure.
I did find these really awesome mystery bruises when my pants slid up at the gym the other day. I wonder what I did? Theories?

Oh February Tree, Oh February Tree...

I disgust myself.
My "January Tree," which was once a "Christmas Tree," is still displaying itself and all its glory in my front room.

*update* - I took down the tree February 2 in celebration of Ground Hog's day and the fact that I had help :-)

Old Year's Resolutions

I don't make New Year's Resolutions.
If I did, looking back on '09, I would have hit all of my New Year's Resolutions if they looked something like this:
1. Visit: Alaska, Hawaii, New York (twice), New Jersey, Washington (twice), Oregon (twice), Idaho (thrice), Nevada, Ohio, Kentucky, California (twice)
2. Lose 5% body fat
3. Star in two musical productions
4. Be a paid model
5. Go on an average of at least one date per month
6. Eat at a 5-star restaurant in a 5-star hotel
7. Quit smoking and drinking (ok, so I never started, but counts, right?)
8. Directly influence two couples towards marriage
9. Bake over 200 batches of cookies
10. Be a better friend to everyone around me and myself

Skinny Arms

Men wearing sleeveless shirts at the gym always kinda cracks me up.
Last night, I saw this man with little twig arms wearing a big t-shirt with the sleeves cut off. Really? Sir, who are you trying to impress? Cause you are failing...miserably.
Even if a man has masterpiece arms with every rippling muscle displayed perfectly, after I think about how Michelangelo would appreciate him, I still get a little giggle.
Put your clothes on, gentlemen!

The Dating Race

Some of my friends (Jon, Shayla, Eric) are doing a dating competition.
Eric decided to let me help his cause and he blogged about it.

The rules?
They decided to put together a little friendly contest to see how many first dates they can have in the month of January.
Once they've gone on a date, they will add a blog post about that date, along with a picture of the date. At the end of the month of January, they will ask for a vote on which date (for each of us) we think was best. They will then go on a group second date with the people we choose, and the winner (the one of with the most dates) will not have to pay.

What do you think?

Dating Statistics

24% of the individuals I have been on dates with in my entire life have been in the past 19 months since I moved to SLC.
44% have been in the past 3 years.
56% when I was ages 16-26.

As far as the number of dates, if I count a maximum of 3 dates with any individual (if I dated them for a few months, I can only count 3), then, ironically enough, the 44% and 56% still apply, but the number since I moved to SLC jumps to a whopping 26%.

Crazy that pretty much half the dating in my life has taken place in the last 3 years and the other half took 10!

Trailer Home

When I was home for Christmas, my cousin showed me this photo of a home in the area. How beautiful, right? Just a little old home nestled amongst the trees...

Then it hits you...In case you need a better look...YES, indeed, this is a house built around a trailer. Brings a new meaning to the term "trailer home." I'd say it was at this moment I knew I was home, but then I can't leave out the conversation I heard at the grocery store about kissing cousins and how kissing them is ok, but anything more just isn't right. Ew.
