I went to the concert last night and it was truly fabulous. They performed all the hits from the season. Including: The Garden, The Door Dance, The Briefcase Dance, The Mia Michaels bed number and many, many other delights.

I thought all the dancers had such good chemistry together and I realize that Will just somehow didn't translate on T.V. If people would have been watching him in person there is no way they could have failed to be blown away.

If next year I can only pick one show to see between A.I. and SYTYCD the latter wins hands down. Here are a few photos from our fun night last night.

Here we are before the show from L-R

Christine and I getting excited for the "door" dance

I loved their interactions and the way they all introduced each others dances. The intermission was so much better than Idol.

Me and Alecia-still laughing about that guy with the sweet "throwing the dice" dance move. Ask me, I'd be happy to demonstrate :)

Gratuitous shot of the crowd-Jen I know you were in here somewhere, hope you loved the show as much as I did!

Training for the Thanksgiving 5k

I'm excited that the some of the fam are in for this fun run! In order to help some of the newbie's (and myself) I thought I'd post a website I love that gives you a training schedule so you can be ready for the big day. Click Here

As soon as info becomes available on registration for the run I'll be sure to let you know. In the meantime I think we should resurrect the running blog Really Running a Marathon Ok, so maybe it's not a marathon, but it could feel like it for some of us.

It's motivating to share our stories of training and to encourage one another. What do you all think? For those of you who want to add to the running blog and haven't been added to it I petition Lacy to add you and let's discuss.....after all if there is one thing we are all really good at it's talking about ourselves ;)

Random updates

It's been awhile since I posted and I thought I'd share some of the random end of summer fun I've been having.

As you all know I'm not what one would call "outdoorsy". This summer I've had the opportunity to camp quite a bit, and I've found that with the right pad to sleep on and some good company camping can be rather delightful.

Here is a pic of my view whilst enjoying a good fire.

Here is my friend Christine and I. Like I said good friends make all the difference to a fun camping trip.

A week or so I also got invited to a "sleep-over" in a friends back yard. The only thing that could have made this more fun, was if they had a trampoline to sleep on. Then we could have done it old school, like when we were 12.Camping, with all the comforts of home. I love having real "facilities".

Other fun has taken place this summer. Lexi's good friend Mallory got married, Lexi was the best bridesmaid ever. She got a tan that made us all wonder what might have been if HB would have married a Latina ;)No guys, it's not the Latin Oprah.......It's Lex

I've also still been running and doing a lot of hiking. I'm so blessed to live in such a beautiful area.

Jaree and I up Rock Canyon

Carol and I...same place

I've tried new foods....hello pink filipino delciousness
Jaree, my guide to all things Filipino

All in all it's been a truly fantastic summer. Filled with good food, friends and scenery. I hope the fall turns out to be just as fantastic!
