What kind of sister am I?

Last night, I went to dinner at Market Street Grill in South Jordan. Our waiter was cute and seemed like a lot of fun. After finding out that he was 27, I determined that I really wanted to introduce him to my sister. Fortunately, he was very willing and even wrote her this note: How cute is that? I think my date thought me a little odd and couldn't believe I would do this. However, my motivation comes from a good place. I think Meggie is an amazing person; she does say, "I'm Megan, I'm amazing" and she's always right. She's beautiful, smart, talented, very creative and training for her first half marathon. (If you doubt me, check out her second blog here) She deserves a great guy! And, if I have to set her up with people I've just met, then I will. And, if nothing else, she'll make a new friend.

What a rivarly!

As the daughter of a die hard Yankee fan, I just thought this was funny. It's entertaining to see the lengths some fans will go to for good luck or to place a curse on their rival.

Did I miss something?

I really feel like I missed out on a part of my education; and all because I was born to soon! I had never heard of "The Oregon Trail" until my sister, Megan began discussing dysentery. I questioned her about this disease and she told me that when playing Oregon Trail, upon losing a player to death, a message stating "Johnny has died of dysentery" would pop up. Again today a co-worker mentioned Oregon Trail and couldn't believe that I had never played. Thanks Wikipedia for providing me with all the information I need and helping me prove that I was no longer in elementary school at the height of its popularity. According to Wikipedia, this game was popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s. How sad I missed out on all the fun. It seems the game is still in circulation and available for purchase.

Hagermann's Bakehouse Cafe

Today for lunch, Amy and I decided to try a new place. We loved it. Such yummy tomato bisque and and fantastic grilled turkey sandwich. And the cookies: num-licious!! They're located in Draper (684 E. 11400S.) but totally worth the drive. Check out their menu before you go. Be sure to tell Dave hi and ask him about the only Hagermann in the place. And if you're as lucky as me, you'll get a second cookie for free---I love cookies and free cookies are even better!

Smart Money

My friend's (Rhielle) little sister made a short film for a "Be Money Smart" competition. See the film here; then vote to help her win. It's all done with Legos (I know there are a few Lego lovers in blogger-land!)
