the encore

so recently i attended the mae concert at the avalon theater in murray. somewhat haven't listened to them since high school but hey, i'm always happy to take a trip up to that lovely little venue.
annnyway, they play their set and then go off stage and what do we all do? start chanting, "one more song," over and over in breathless suspense....
wait. didn't we do this last time? and the time before...
but they might not come back this time, KEEP CHANTING!
i think it just may be the fakest little fake out in showbusiness.
we're done...oh wait!! we'll play one more song since you guys are "the best audience this tour. (did i mention the girls in utah are the prettiest i've ever seen?)"
my favorite was when we went to the bee gee's concert
one (very atypical...) loserish night freshman year brienne came to our rescue with her phatty nu skin connections and got us tickets to see the BEE GEE'S. or i mean the BEE GEE, since there's only one who still is alive/in operation.
they played stayin alive and trust me we were gettin down hard core with 5 billion asians, it was legit.
then they go off stage and we start chanting for more, naturally. but hold on, didn't he already do the only song we all knew?
why, yes, yes he did. so he came back and....played it again. and the crowd went wild! ohh one of the best encore moments of my life.

so next time i'm at a concert i think i'll start a movement to NOT cheer for the encore...just to shake things up. wouldn't it be fun? just dead silence. ok awkward fun, but fun nonetheless.
anyway, shout out to mae for their AMAZING encore: lead singer + guitar + sun. so great.

called to serve.

hermana groesbeck, leaving for the quito ecuador mission in less than a month!

ok this is somewhat late i realize, but i just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came and supported michelley last week!
it was so great to see everyone who knows and loves her.
it was somewhat of an emotional day for well as for my parents, if you didn't notice :)
she leaves june 10th and as of right now i'm secretly plotting evil ways to keep her home. just kidding i don't REALLY want to go to hell, but i'm going to miss her terribly. i don't want to think about it...

thank you friends for coming!
my mom's heel got stuck in the ac vent, causing some post-church stress. so awesome.
hezzy, aaron and baby ??
pretty sure every kid there had chocolate smeared on their faces/sunday clothes.
cute chasey cannot get enough of the water fountain, i love it!the miller girls are amazing! so many memories of dancing to mariah carey in lake powell and wishing i was them :)
amy on mom duty as usual
sexy singles
mom & nana
by the time we got to it, the chocolate fountain was broken and overloaded with the remains of kids attempts to use it. yes we still ate it.
beautiful people
blossom tree outside our house. how can you not be happy this time of year? oh yeah, when your sister is LEAVING YOU for a year and a half :) i think she'll have a blog when she goes so i will keep everyone posted!

so hughge right now.

remember when i saw him in london????? ahhh.

i saw WOLVERINE this weekend and once again am in awe of the hotness that is hugh jackman. as if the herbal essence-esque water dousing moment in australia wasn't enough.
when he bursts out of that tank? please!!! i could hardly contain myself.

so of course i get home and google the heck out of're telling me this guy is 40 years old? and married to HER??

oh hugh hunny, please. the least you could do was marry someone your own generation! this broad is 13 years older than him. but good, you know what, i respect him all the more for staying married, even after being voted what was it, sexiest man in the universe? something along those lines.
because we all know a nice, good looking married man is the WORST kind of man you can be around. all you can do is smile and be happy for his wife, which is no fun at all. which brings me to my next question for all you singlez out there...

why do engaged men NOT WEAR RINGS? why??

i take this as nothing less than the last trace of women's inequality in the americas. what, so they have some sort of lesser commitment than we do?
i can't tell you how many nice, friendly, good looking, ENGAGED guys i seem to meet. and you don't even realize it until the drop the F bomb on you. after a nice, ten minute conversation. "oh yes my fiancee and i blahhhhhh..."
the worst was the verizon guy. MARRIED and not wearing his ring....?

i go into the store to upgrade my phone and am just tickled when this total hottie walks up to help me. of course, i scam the 4th finger, NO RING. things are looking great.
he is legitimately flirting with me for probably ten minutes and then,
"oh yeah, my WIFE blah blah blahh"
"oh-uhh.haaha.yeah. WHAT??!!!!"

ummmm i'm sorry i just planned our life together in my head...
i'm telling your wife you flirt with girls to sell phones.

those of you who go to byu know what an awful abundance there is of guys like this. what do we do about it? if not rings, there must be some other solution. wristbands? brand their foreheads? dare i say it....ban them from campus?? ha sometimes i wish. anyway. i loooove dating!! it is just so much fun and i'm learning so much from all these experiences. can't wait for my eternal comp to just come and like whisk me out of the brimhall!
