And, if this craziness did happen, what would I do every night in April and May?? I mean really, I would have time to be bored and maybe study for the DAT (only the test that determines what I do for the rest of my life). So, for my sake, I beg you (yes, you Jazz boys) to PLEASE pull it together and play like the team I know you are. You have worked to hard to let it come down to this. I am totally free to come and give you a pep-talk. Just call me. But, whatever you do, please don't break my heart like your comrades did about 10 years ago. I just don't think I could handle it.
Thank you and good luck.

You rearrange your church schedule to watch Jazz games!!! So the Jazz have a very RARE Sunday game vs. Minnesota at 1:30. It just so happens that I have church during that time. So, what's a girl to do?? Well, I went to church with a friend at 9:30 so that I could watch the game!! Oh, the things I'm willing to do for this team. They better win!
P.S. It totally snowed like a lot last night. And, it is STILL snowing. That is definitely unluxury.

So, since I have been told that I don't update my blog enough, I will try and do a recap of the last week.
Since last Friday I have taken 3 HARD tests in Microbiology, Biochemistry and Plant Physiology. And, it turns out that I have ANOTHER Biochem test this upcoming week. Ugh. But, I did get the high, AGAIN, on my Micro test, so that is very luxury.
I switched my purse over to one of my 'fun' D&B's. I felt that it was appropriate for springtime. Now, if only the weather would cooperate.
I found out that they are opening a new dental school in Pomona, CA. Just over the hill from Whitter. This is very luxury because I could totally hang out with Chrissi for the 4 years I'm in school.
We have a love of awkward YouTube videos in our family, and I stumbled upon this little gem:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0J7TPJAuMU
It is soooo funny. It's long, but watch it through the end and you'll see why it's even funnier!
I am slowly starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and within 3 short months I will be a college grad. That is luxury.
I am going to Cali again in a month, but just for the weekend. Peter, maybe you should call me, cause I'm pretty sure that there is governmental work that needs to be done in CA this particular weekend!!
And, did you honestly think I'd go through a whole post without mentioning my boys?? They played very well this week (after a heart-breaking loss to the LA Kobe's), and I expect them to have another good week. I still love that D. Will. He's so good, and CP3 has NOTHING on him. Don't get me started......

Anyway, on Sunday morning we went to 'Music and the Spoken Word' and then went back to the hotel and my parents made us a very nice Easter breakfast. Then we did a 'photoshoot'. For some reason this is a regular occurance with us. I don't know why. So, then Jac and I headed headed home, and did homework. All in all, I must say that it was a very nice weekend.
Lil' Jon getting the 'supposedly' getting the crowd hyped. YEEEEAAAHHH!!
Our new Russian exchanged students.
Disregard whatever I am doing, look how much taller Camille is.
Gabby set up her own little table for breakfast. Note the new 'Katie Holmes' hair-do.
Padre and Madre making breakfast.
Taking pics in the bathroom. At least it was a marble bathroom.
Awkward. Don't worry, Gabby will get braces.
Ok, camera's really shouldn't have automatic timers.
Ronnie Price was nice and stopped to sign a card for this little boy. Interesting enough, he still had Sacramento Kings license plate surrounds.
Memo thought he was too cool for school. Whatever, I have the same car!
No wonder Jerry loves Harpring so much. A good old truck driving boy. No glitz or glamour.
CJ is really young! Like, younger than me! He stopped and was nice to sign for this kid.
Jac was in charge of the recording. This isn't very long, but it is luxury.

Happy 27th Birthday Kyle!! Hopefully your birthday luck will translate into a win tonight. Here is a list of 10 reasons to love Kyle:
1. He can shoot a 3 with the ball in his hands for .1 seconds.
2. He can actually make free-throws (a new concept for the Jazz)!
3. He was born in California.
4. He's a good, church-going boy.
5. He holds an annual coat drive for kids.
6. He gives back to the community.
7. He's just really cute.
8. He wants to be remembered as a good basketball player, and not just for his looks.
9. He wears knee-socks.
10. He's an all-around good guy and a wonderful addition to the team.

Eating a Grown-up lunch (paying for yourself is kind of unluxury!). We like to coordinate our shirts with our eye colors.
Apparently I was a little nervous to go on Tower of Terror.
Just soakin' up some California sunshine.
Because 'CALIFORNIA' doesn't have a 'D' I did a 'L' for 'LUXURY'.
Gavin aspires to work at Homeboy Industries when he grows up. Haha.
Bronte is a Gothic Princess. But a very fancy one.
Pretty Haydan sitting in the garden.
Gavin just likese to be part of the action. Notice the 'hairdo.'
This is a little awkward.
I was under the impression that the submarines were really going to Hawaii. I was sorely disappointed when they didn't. And for the record, I like the old-school submarine voyage better.
Big Thunder Railroad was very exciting.
In the line of Indiana Jones it says that you aren't supposed to step on the diamonds, cause you will die. But, I like to break the rules. Note the Dooney & Bourke shoes.

So, what has the luxury life been like lately:
-Like I said, there have been many an afternoon ride in the Porshce listening to a mix-cd that I call "My jams." I have since been informed that it is no longer cool to say "jams." Whatever.
-My Boys have won 5 in a row, including a road win in Pheonix, and a blow-out last night against the Denver Thuggets (I personally love how A.I. and Melo wear matching headbands and arm sleeves.) Remember, points win games, but defense wins Championships. At this rate, we are right on track to take it all the way.
-I'm half-way through my last semester. That is very luxury.
-I saw 'The Other Bolyen Girl.' It was rather interesting. I don't think I would recommend going to see it at the theatre. Maybe, rent it from Blockbuster, maybe not.
-Jacqueline and I love to say 'Homeboy Industries' whenever we answer the phone with each other. I think I'm going to get Jac a Homeboy Industries shirt for her b-day next month.
-Ya'll should read Jac's blog as well. It is pretty funny. Last week she had the funny idea to talk into your iPod and pretend it is an iPhone. I thought it was hilarious.
-Without going into details, because it is a brain-dead experience, I will just say that I got my BMW back. I will however say this, DON'T BUY A BMW. You will have problems with it the second the warranty runs out and then you are screwed.
-We are now painting the house. It will be nice when it is done as the fumes are rather nausiating.
-Jac and I are going to CA on wednesday. We are very excited.
-I think I need Botox, just between my eyebrows. I have the inherited scowl from my Dad, and frowning so much gives me bad headaches sometimes.
-I love the T-mobile commercials with Charles Barkley and Dwayne Wade. Don't ask me why, I just think they are really funny.
-I really think that the Lakers have a good chance of winning the championship this year. While I love my Jazz, I think that Kobe is pretty unstoppable most times. And now with Gasol (besides the fact that he looks like a caveman), they are going to be a tough team to beat in the West.
-Also, I think Deron is THE BEST POINT GUARD in the league. Steve Nash is good, but he can't carry that team like he does. And CP3 is the media darling, and I just don't like it. Deron deserves much more National coverage than he does.
-I think I have Spring Fever. I can hardly concentrate in school anymore. All I want to do is be outside and__________. I don't think it's that hard to guess. Refer to above picture.
-I want to go see Semi-Pro. It looks funny. Let me know if any of you have seen it and liked it.
-I have been listening to 'The Sweet Escape' a lot lately. I think I forgot how fun it was.
-I still love KK, just in case any of you were wondering. Bad haircuts and all, he's just adorable.
-I'll try to post again before leaving for Cali, and I promise to take lots of pics while I'm there.

On his days off he goes to elementary schools and read to the children. That KK is such a giver. He also volunteers with 'Basketball Without Borders' during the off-season.
I guess we will go with a few songs of the 'week' since I've been such a slacker this week!
- Online, by Brad Paisley (it's really funny, I promise)
- I Only Wanna Be With You, by Hootie & the Blowfish (one of my all-time favs)
I will do a full report this weekend.
