Name that movie!!

Ok! Lets see who can get this one. These are two random quotes in the movie:

"I am the king of the echo people!"
"My cat can eat a whole watermelon."

Name that TV show!

I was watching a show the other day and I thought about the game we play in naming movies from lines that are in it. I thought i'd see who could name the TV show from the theme song. Here it goes;

"I'm not the kind to kiss and tell, but i've been seen with Farra. I've never been with anything, but a 9 so fine. I've been on fire with Sally Fields. Gone fast with a girl named Bo. But some how they just don't end up as mine. It's a death defining life I lead, I take my chances...."

Good Luck!

P.S. The lead actor also sings the theme song, it's kind of funny.

More SAHS Reunion FUN!!

Me at the slot machine! Michelle told me that her boss always has luck at those specific machines, we gave it a shot. I guess it wasn't our lucky night.

Me with Ashlee, Bret's wife!

Brynn Wolf and Me! Of course I had to strike a pose!

Michelle didn't seem to have any luck either!

Time! Where has it Gone?!?!

I can't believe that it's been 10 years since I've graduated from high school! This October my high school in Korea had it's 10 year reunion, in Vegas! Luckily it was the same weekend a mission companion of mine got married in St. George, UT. That made it a convenient trip. Most of you know that I didn't technically graduate from S.A.H.S. (Seoul American High School), but neither did about 5 of the others that were there that night. People from the classes of 97, 98 and 99 are invited, those who would have or did graduate those years. I had a blast!! I had a lot of fun getting back in touch with everyone.

Me with Bret Nelson and Heath Coles
I went to Bret's wedding, we've kept in touch with him and his family real well!
Me and Heath! He's a teacher in Dallas, Texas now. Who'd a thunk that he'd be a teacher, he was the biggest goof ball!

Carla Carrillo and Me! We played Volleyball, Basketball and Soccer together. She looks exactly the same, hasn't changed a bit!

Mike So, Mimi Jackson, Antonio Nieves, and Me!!
Mimi and I played Volleyball together. There was another girl that showed up later that play volleyball with us as well. We almost had the whole team there!

Me and Michelle Tarrant! I remembered who she was, but I didn't really know her back in the day. We became friends at the reunion. After dinner we went and played slots together. Don't worry I didn't gamble away my money. I just did a little for fun!

Bret Nelson and AJ Johansen!! I've see Bret over the years, but it was a treat to see AJ. I haven't seen him in probably 7 yrs. He's still living in Korea. In fact, my mom was up in Seoul, and was on the Post up there and this kid past here and said something to her about being a missionary. It just happened to AJ. What a coincident?!

Time with Aunt DiDi!!!

After 18 months of being gone, you'd never thought I'd left. Except for that fact that all the kids are all grown up, and there are 4 new ones that I'm just now getting to know!
Me and Craig's kids!!

Miss Chloe

The Stud Muffins!!
What's the Zoolander pose, Blus Steel? Hudson has a very good 'Blue Steel' pose going on in this pic!!

People that don't know me always ask if Kathleen is my daughter. Then I'm remembered of the time when she was about 4 or 5 yrs, and visiting in Utah. We were at the mall and as we were checking out, she made sure that she told the cashier, "She's not my mom." I wasn't sure where that came from, just said it out of the blue!

After Megan finally warmed up to me. I guess since that was the first time ever meeting her, it would be hard to go right up to stranger.

Always a party with Aunt DiDi! ROCK ON!!!

I just realized that I don't have pictures with Chad's kids. I have one of Olivia on my phone, I'll have to get that one on here. Hey Chad, if you have any with me and your kids, could you send it to me. Thanks!

Finding that E.C...Eternal Companion!

I got the opportunity to go down to St. George, UT, for the wedding of one of my mission companions. Pamela Wade!! She married an elder from our mission, Greg Price! CRAZY! It was a "nice day for white wedding." Actually it was a perfect day outside, i just wanted to quote Billy Idol!

"I'm going there someday..."

Me with the happy couple!!

President and Sister Batchelor were able to make it to the wedding as well. At the Luncheon, President just kept asking us which of our weddings they were going to attend next. We'll have to see!! :) :)

Mission Reunion!!

It's been 6 months!!! Wow time sure does fly by...("when you're alternating strength and cardio" - sorry inside joke, i had to put it in)! I tried to get more pics but I was talking too much and forgot about taking more pics. Another thing I noticed, I should have worn more make-up. There were too many former elders there to not wear more. Oh well, that's what I get for being lazy!

Me and Sister Batchleor!!
Me and Jamie...aka...Sister Jeffers!!

Me and Landon...aka...Elder Smith!!

Jamie I guess had to jump in on the action! Tungaa is an innocent bystander.

Sterling...aka...Elder Maughn and Me!!

Me and Austin...aka...Elder Calvert!!

Aubrey this one's for you!!

Me and Jaime...aka...Elder Conde!! We were MTC buds, in the same district!

...So many Elders, so little time... :) :) :)

"Some like it hot, and some dance when the heat is on..."

After serving in the South, there's one thing I love now...buffalo wings!!! There's a place that we'd eat at all the time, mainly after district meeting, Buffalo Wild Wings! I brought home a bottles of one of the sauces, so I could enjoy them at home. So upon returning home I fried up some chicken wings and dove right in!

Apparently I wasn't the only one who also dove in!

Look Who's Back! ...and ready to pArtY!

Christine's Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!! It's not a Cinco de Mayo if you don't have Dora!
Christine's sister, Jessica, and brother, Travis! The whole Andelin clan came out for the fiestivities!

It wouldn't be a fiesta without the famous 7-layer greeno dip!

Me and Ruthann! Me, Christine and Ruthann...Nebraska representin'... Go Huskers!!

I was invited to this party about 2 weeks after i got home from my mission. I had to start partying to getting back into normal life, so i jumped in head first!!

I'm finally doing the blog thang...!

Well most of you know that I just recently, as of 5 months ago, have returned home from my mission. For those of you whom I haven't talked to in quite a while, I served in the Arkansas Little Rock Mission. I should have started this blog a long time ago, because now there's a lot of catching up to do. I'll probably be posting random pics of the last 5 months, and also ones of my mission. Here are a couple of pics to get you started. The First one is of me and the missionaries I flew home with, Elder Waters and Sister Yura. Sister Yura and I were companions for 4 1/2 months. She's from Mongolia, but lives in Taylorsville going to school. It's great to be able to see companions after being home. The rest of the pic are of me since I've been home. Chloe's blessing, lunch with friends, and Nancy's LPN pinning ceremony.
