Cinderella and wishing I was in St. Thomas


We had a fun girls night out last night. We all went to the Cinderella ballet! I love Cinderella, it was one of my favorite Disney shows as a kid. Dan and I were supposed to go last Saturday for Valentines Day-yes, I am a mean wife, I was going to drag my husband to the ballet. We had tickets and I was really excited, especially to get out (we had been sick and stuck at home all week.) But come Saturday night, we were still very, very sick. Dan was thrilled to have an excuse, any excuse, even being deathly ill, to get out of going, but I was disappointed. We gave our tickets to our friends, stayed in and watched The Godfather, one of Dan's favorite movies. See, I am not that mean of a wife, I am perfectly willing to watch these mafia movies.

Anyway, my sweet mom got me a ticket and we all had so much fun going together last night, minus the husbands. She was crazy, she rushed from work to meet us at the ballet and then caught a flight to St. Thomas at midnight afterward! Really, I don't feel that bad for her because she is probably lounging on the beach right now at beautiful Megan's Bay, soakin' up the sun, while we all freeze here in Utah. Is anyone else sick of winter? As a kid, I used to love winter, the snow, skiing, making snowmen, and sledding. But as I get older, the more I grow to dislike this season. After Christmas time I have had it with the cold. Now listen all of you sweater-lovers, if you were stuck in a snow storm on I-15 for four hours and had to drive around in a VW bug with no heater, you would change your mind about winter! Our solution, moving to Texas! Maybe right now is not the best time to make a decision about where to move for medical school, cause the sunny states are calling my name. It's like grocery shopping when you're hungry and all you want to buy are the sugary snacks. Dan just got an invitation to an interview at Cornell University in Manhattan, New York. It is a good school and a great opportunity but I just can't stop thinking about how cold it is there. Have any of you ever been to Manhattan in the middle of winter? Insanely cold, too cold. No thanks, it is sandal-wearing weather only for this girl. Thank goodness spring is right around the corner, and maybe then my judgment about where we should go to med. school won't be clouded by the snow.

What a fun evening out with your mom and sister! I love Cinderella and I am sure the ballet was amazing.
I am soooo jealous of your mom and being in St. Thomas.....NOT FAIR! I talked to her on Thursday and she told me she was going. I told her I wanted to be packed in her suitcase as a carryon. Didn't happen.
As for not liking the cold-I am right there with you. I am ready to move back to Vegas. The winters there weren't as bad and the summers were nice and hot. I NEED sun!
Oh ya,
did you get the photos I sent Ashley??

Ha ha... I cracked up when I finally figured out it was you (Dan).
Isn't it crazy how grown up we are!? You're right about getting
together, that would be pretty sweet. I'm glad to hear you didn't
sell yourself short by becoming a nurse, nurses are amazing, but
you're definetely a doctor. Anyways, it was good to hear from you...
I hope everything is going well. And if you need to take a little
vacation in the OC before you start Medical School, let us know...
haha (that felt so masculine to say "the OC")

Later

Lindsey, I had a blog stocking moment and found you through Melissa Latimer's blog. I didn't even know you and Dan were married! You look gorgeous, as usual. I just want to put my vote in for you two to go to UVA in Charolettesville. I live in Virginia Beach right now (my husband is in Law School) and we've been up to UVA. It is like heaven on earth. I think you two would be really happy there. ~Chablis Adams (Trinnaman)

what a fun evening! I've never been to the ballet, but I'm sure it would be amazing. as for school....DO IT!! I was really excited to get back into it. Its not that bad really...and the time just kinda comes. I'm really enjoying it. only 2 classes, so not too much time away from the kids.

Susan said...

Well lindsey, you can solve all your cold problems by putting on about forty pounds and you will be very comfortable. (You are probably freaking out at the idea) I am glad you got to see the ballet. I would love that but I cant even imagine Dan or his dad sitting through that kind of torture. You two be good and I love you.

Lindsay

Love Tara

Did you know I lived in NYC for a year? It was awesome! The winters are dang cold! But, you don't go anywhere without a nice coat, hat, and scarf, so you're prepared for it. So, it's not that bad.
But, yes we live in Ut. We're in Eagle Mountain. Lunch would be great before you guys move! Just let me know.

The Jensens said...

Well look who I found! I about fell off my chair when I found you on Mandi Taylor's page. You look beautiful and happy.

Devri said...

Lindsey- I am so sorry about lunch, I had just decided Friday night to leave Sunday. I wanted to go, but make sure you call me anytime, especially if you have more questions, or complaints!

The Jensens said...

Okay, you were stuck in traffic for 4 hours without a heater???! That's insane! Lunch would be fun. We should get together with Tara too!
