Shout out to Isaac and Camber!!

Dear Friends in Iowa,

Today I was listening to Ingrid Michaelson. Particularly her song "Everybody." It brought back some really fun memories. Here are a couple.

First, you guys introduced us to that song on our trip back from hiking around Nephi, which was a few weeks after Dave and I got married. I loved everything about love (such a newly wed!) and I also really liked Ingrid Michaelson, so I started singing this song all the time after that.

Second, Dave really likes to change the words to songs. I'm sure you've experienced this before. Well, soon the beautiful Ingrid Michaelson words "Everybody, everybody wants to love; everybody, everybody wants to be loved," became the somewhat morbid "Everybody, everybody likes to eat; everybody, everybody likes to be eaten." I don't know if you ever heard this version, but it has brought us a lot of laughs during the past year of marriage.

I guess the point is, we miss you, and can't wait to see you!

Your Friends in Utah (a.k.a. Your REAL Best Friends!)


  1. Whaaaaattt?

    You can't post an entire blog post about us, and not even TELL us that you're posting it!

    Man, I'm so flattered. First, glad that you like Ingrid. I decided to listen to it RIGHT NOW because of your comments. Love it. Love it.

    Second, we all know about Dave's fetish with cannibalism. (Poor, poor James. . . we all miss him so much. I hope he was worth it, Dave!)

    Third, we miss you guys, too! We'll be in Utah over Christmas, but I think you said you wouldn't be... depressing. But no fear! We'll be backing watching "First Daughter" again before you know it, eating Zinger Sundaes, and maybe playing a game of Small World. Good times.

  2. You know, I guess I just assumed that you guys followed our blog but weren't the commenter types. I've been commenting on your blog for a while now.

    But yes, you should be flattered! And I can't wait to watch "First Daughter" with you guys again!
