Check out this guy

Ok, so VaRonica and I went out to lunch and as we leave the restaraunt I spy this totally random guy. Check him out: he is dressed as an old western cowboy. His paper, if you check close, is not designed to look like a modern rag. He was just hanging out…looking cool. So, VaRonica says she will “pretend” she is posing for a picture and I totally snapped one of this guy. He reminds me of Sam Shepherd, which gets my heart racing….just a little bit.

I found some photos from Christmas that I missed when uploading St. Pat’s pics. Just a few extra, but they are fabulous. Here is a stunning photo of my father. When I was little I told my teacher’s he wanted to look like Tom Selleck, but now I think he way better looking than that old bag of bones…love ya dad!

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day…or so the song goes. I went to the parade with my best friend VaRonica and had a blast. We took pictures, met interesting people, went to the Hellenic center festivities, danced a jig and had an all around great time. To see pictures of our fabulous day, just click on the pic and check them out.

I would have to say I was impressed with the Irish Wolfhounds of Utah. However, any child wearing a tutu and/or wings is probably in my group of pics.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY !!!!!

She walks in beauty like the night….and will damn well put out the fire raging at your house. This is my beautiful cousin Gretchen whom is an EMT and firefighter in Lafayette, IN. Wife, mother, daughter, friend, FIREFIGHTER….she wears all the hats well. And let me tell you, Indiana, still not a progressive state when it comes to women…way to go Gretchen.

I received my letter of acceptance from the University of Utah Masters of Social Work Program yesterday. So, that means I can breathe and plan for the next year….

I am blessed with greatest friends, who allow me to express anxiety and support me unconditionally. Thank you for supporting me and encouraging me while I waited to find out. I am blessed to have so many people to love and be loved in return.

The agency I work for is involved in this awesome recreation program called CHILL, sponsored by Burton, Sobe, Clif Bar and other companies. It provides, free of charge, use of equipment, lessons and lift passes to at risk youth to learn how to snowboard. I was invited to be a chaperone this year, which means falling on my bootie one night a week while I learn with my kids, and I am having a BLAST! Besides the kids getting to do something recreationally awesome, I am watching them grow as leaders, demonstrating kindness and patience, all things they struggle to learn in the classroom. So, give me 2 more weeks and I will totally be trickin’ out like the caricature above. And you better believe I have put up my skis permanently and started shopping around for the perfect board.

As my Utah friends know I am sometimes referred to as the “Vagina Group Lady” by my female clients. My favorite group to teach is women’s health and I spend a great deal of time researching and creating curriculum. So, I peruse several health websites to keep up on the current info and to see the awesome materials put out by others…..but nothing, and I mean NOTHING prepared me for what I saw tonight. teenwire.com a partner of planned parenthood has videos on their website addressing different issues. It would not do this blog justice for me to try and describe what I saw tonight, so I beg, no plead, all who read this entry to go to the link below and watch the How Pregnancy Happens video. Then call me or write me right away with a scale of how hard you laughed and how semi-disturbed you were when you really thought about what you were seeing.

 It is really creative….but way forward in thinking…or maybe I’ve just lived in Utah too long.
