B Y U!!!!

Oh Rise and Shout the Nielsens are out...

It's so great when the Cougars play in your backyard. Saves us a lot of unnecessary efforts to show our true Blue spirit. Jon met up with an old mission friend at the BYU vs. UNLV game last night. We took Scarlet along, after we found out that EVERY available babysitter in our ward was already reserved.

I'm actually so glad we took her along. She loved it! The minute we walked in the door she was just in awe over the lights and players. We were there for over 4 hours. She didn't sleep a wink but was the happiest most excited little kid you have ever seen. It was too funny.
The really pathetic part was we had absolutely no insignia to show our support of the cougars. I'm not sure how Jon and I both made it out of BYU without any apparel but we managed. Scarlet who at one point owned a little BYU onesie has long since grown out of it. We were pretty pathetic fans. But I guess they didn't need us cause they won!

My mom is in New York this weekend for a costume show. I'm pretty jealous. I loved my time in New York. I'm not sure I could do it again, I don't imagine NY with a baby would be as fun, but I just have the greatest memories from that semester. My long subway ride to work, all the crazy stuff they made me do at Letterman. I was an intern in the worst sense of the word most days. I would fetch dry cleaning, made at least 2 coffee runs a day, always had to run to the grocery store for his personal chef, I even had to return some clothes for Letterman one day.

But the fact that I could just take a stroll in central park, or wait in line for student tickets and see any broadway play for under $30, or just be standing in Times Square. So so fabulous.
