the Strike is OVER!!

So I am sure that Shelly will be so happy to read this on the internet for anyone to see but I think that I may have more shows that I am addicted to than she does, which means with the strike ending I am super happy to indulge once again in all that crap that is on T.V. I do have to say, for the record, that between shows, music, and sports Shelly definitely spends more time on "entertainment" that I do/
That having been said.. Luckily I am a reality t.v. addict so most of the shows that I enjoy have continued during the last few months but here are the two that I have missed the most and that I couldn't be more excited that they are back.

When this show first started I would watch and episode here and there and I always really liked them but I honestly didn't think that the show would stick around for very long so I didn't invest too much time into getting to know the characters and story lines. Well thanks to my very persuasive friends and the changing from Sunday to Thursday I finally invested some time into watching Grey's and I have to say I don't have any regrets!!! I love Izzy and Meredith, they are the two characters that I relate to the most (depending on the situation) and I am excited to see what happens with the rest of the season.

GOSSIP GIRL (please don't judge me by my choice of shows!!)
Alright so I for sure think that the fact that Gossip Girl is set in New York may have a HUGE impact on New York Magazine picking them as the best new show but that's just my personal opinion.. Although I have to admit that it really is good. When I first heard the title of this new show I was certain that it would be horrible. I even told my young women that I couln't believe they would name a show such a degrading name. Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I found myself watching the pilot just to see what it was all about. The rest is history. I have been addicted to Gossip Girl ever since. I am also proud to say that I have drug my friend Jodi down the path with me ( although she didn't catch the feva till the re-runs started airing during the strike.) I am certain that it is only a matter of time until I can convince Shelly that it is worth her time as well ;) hint hint Shells!!!

I think that part of the reason I like this show so much is because it seems lately that so many shows have been centered around California and the wealthy out there... Those of you who really know me know that I LOVE New York and everything about it so to see a show that is based in a city I adore it is totally appealing to me.
Alright I will quit divulging secrets on the world wide web but for anyone who is interested in a show that is high drama and totally crazy and sometimes unbelievable, that your husbands or boyfriends will totally hate ( pretty sure Logan doesn't need to watch this one with me ;)) but that you and the girls can get together and watch it is on Monday nights at 8... Or you can totally Ti-Vo it and watch it at your convenience..
Let me know what you think or if you are already a fan feel free to let me know that as well..

Can a girl win Biggest Loser?!?

So I know many of you women have the same issue as I do... You work your butt off for weeks sometimes months and all you lose are maybe a couple of inches- sometimes as much a a whole pant size after lots and lots of hard work. All of this while the men in your life change one simple thing such as not drinking soda and they drop 15 pounds in 2 weeks.. So not Fair!!! Anyways I have been watching the Biggest Loser for a couple of seasons now and it is no wonder that a woman has never won... they have to work 10 times harder for comparable results.
Well this season there is some stiff competition between Ali and the boys. Ali dropped 99 pounds during her time on the show and is the first real woman contender to win the whole thing.. The finale is tonight and for any of you that get a chance to watch I am sure that you will be just as amazed as I am at the before and after of these people.
Below are some picures of the final four contestants... Can you believe how much their whole life has changed by losing all of this weight??? I am inspired every season as I watch these people become beautiful butterflies who have been stuck in the "cacoons" for who knows how long...

Me and my Gang

Alright when I say that the following pictures are in random order I mean it literally... I have been meaning to upload these pictures for sometime now and am just getting around to it. I figured I have a couple of options 1. Make an individual post for each picture or 2. Just throw them all in one post and blog about it!!! Obviously I chose the easier of the two options.

Brandee and I in our "Crazy" hats from the aquarium in south Salt Lake. I think we look pretty hot. I am sure all the guys would want us if we wore these out on the town.

Shellbell looking hot while jammin on the guitar hero guitar... I won't even tell you how many hours we spent playing guitar hero that night. (that's right I said hours, the game is freaking addicting!!)

The Hollis Girls.. Don't mind my chubby face I was retaining some serious water on Easter. Some members of my family thought I had gotten a boob job just to give you and idea of how bad it really was. I love my sisters aren't they all so beautiful?!?

Troy, Shelly, Me, Casey, and Jodi bowling last week. I just want to note that despite Jodi thinking she beat me and shelly in the first game she did in fact only beat Shelly.. I kicked both their a*s%S.

I could kiss those fish lips all day long!! Look where his hand in.. another great Hollis kisser in the making ha ha

Here's the front view of those lucious fish lips.. I swear he has the cutest stinkin face EVER

The guy in the back is Danilo, he was my professor in the MTC in Brazil... Not gonna lie it was extremely awkward going on a date with him.. I felt like I was totally breaking the rule ;) since when am I against that?

Me and my chicas!! I always have fun when we three are together!

Holy freaking cute babies.. Heston and Deegan are the first Municipal Elementary school babies and we all love them to pieces..

Carol, Alisha, Me... Alisha was my companion in the MTC who I hadn't seen for 5 years.. Crazy I don't feel like it has been that long since I was in the MTC
