little london!

Today Brein called me and asked me to babysit for her so she, Doug, and Jameson could have a date at Lagoon. It worked out perfectly for me because I was going to be home alone anyway!She woke up for a little while to eat and get a diaper change, but other than that all she's done is sleep - which is nice! She hasn't even cried so far, only been a little fussy. Even though she's only been here for maybe 4 hours, it kinda makes me realize how serious - and hard - having a baby is!
Yes, I took a lot of pictures to try to get some good ones - and I couldn't pick which ones I liked the best! They're all kind of the same, but oh well, she's just too darling.

the PO-lice

Yesterday Kristofor and I went to see The Police in concert. Kristofor's a big fan, plus, according to him, "you just don't pass up The Police." So we made it a date and started by going to eat at the Olive Garden in Layton. Then we went to Layton Hills mall, which was pretty cool because they have a Dairy Queen! I LOVE DQ Blizzards - they're doing one right now made out of Thin Mint girls scout cookies - so yummy! Anyway, we got lost along the way...

Which turned out to be because they renumbered the exits! We got to USANA about an hour before they opened the gates.
This is us, trying to be happy in the intense heat! waiting...
still waiting! When they let us in, we ran to the lawn to try to get a good spot - a mean guy kicked us out of our original spot, but we got one right next to it, and we were able to see the stage pretty perfectly.

Setting up

This is all the people - I think Sting said their were 15,000 people there.
waiting for the concert to begin.
Elvis Costello played for over an hour - Sting came out on stage and jammed with him! Everyone cheered like crazy!
Rocking out
Now we're waiting for what we all came here for - the Police.
Here's Sting! Look at that pretty face ;)
This is the light show they played during Roxanne.

It was a fun concert! They played for about 2 hours, and it was very well done. It was probably the mildest concert crowd I've ever been around, but there was more drinking than I've ever noticed at a concert before. During one of the last songs I felt something spraying up onto the backs of my calves, turned around and some drunk guy was spilling his beer all over our blanket! AND he didn't even notice he was doing it - his girlfriend had to tell him! I guess it's bound to happen (the beer cups don't have lids and they fill it right up to the brim) but still, I was peeved - it's the first time we've used that blanket. It smelled sooo nasty. =( It took us forever to get out of the parking lot and we were glad to get home, but ll in all - I'm glad we went. =)

Even though Kristofor and I are adults, we still get bored in church. Last Sunday we drew funny pictures of each other to keep ourselves entertained. This is what we came up with.

When Kristofor came to pick me up from my parents house on his way home from work he got out of the car and told me the engine was overheated - WAY overheated. The needle was way over the line, and a red light was on! (which is always scary - red lights can never mean anything good). Even though it was almost midnight, my dad came out and took a look at the engine. Turns out our coolant was non-existent, and there was a crack in the radiator. Eek! I hate car problems, mostly because I don't really understand them and they cost lots of money! My dad guessed what was wrong, and I thought we'd end up paying $500+ to put a new radiator in or whatever needed to happen, so I was pretty bummed! So we took it to the shop the next day and the lady quoted us a radiator price which was only $250. And even though they were booked solid, said she could try to squeeze us in. They ordered a new radiator from SLC, and by the end of the night, our car was fixed! I'm pretty sure the boy who always works on our car has a crush on me, which is why the service was so speedy and awesome. ;) Jk, but he did pump some air into our disabled tire, which was nice. So the total of everything, including the part, service, and whatnot didn't even end up being $300! I was sooooooo happy. Crazy how things work out, eh.

Anyway, surfing the internet today I discovered Circle Contact Lenses, which are big in Asia. They're just regular contacts, except they have an extra ring of color around the edges to make your eyes look bigger - I like them a lot, but would probably never get them. Pretty!

*On another happy note, I got a raise! I was so excited, I went and bought myself a new shirt.*
