On to the Super Bowl!

Lest you all think I'm only a fan of baseball, let me just tell you how positively thrilled I am that the Chicago Bears traded for Bronco's quarterback Jay Cutler. Ever since moving to Iowa all those years ago, I've been a big fan of "Duh Bears". I remember the Super Bowl they won in 1986, with a team that included Walter Payton, William Perry, Jim McMahon, Willie Gault, Gary Fencik, and Mike Singletary, and that was coached by Mike Ditka. (Now that was a heck of a team.)

The Soldier Boys have been in serious need of a punky QB (only a true Bears fan will get that reference) for oh, say 20 years. Sure, they may have gotten to the Super Bowl again a few years ago, but we all know it was not based on the talents and leadership of Rex Grossman. Kyle Orton last season was a bit of an improvement, but they missed the playoffs, so obviously he wasn't much of one. But Jay Cutler, now he will be exciting. The guy can certainly throw the ball, as well as orchestrate a winning 4th quarter drive.

So - Kudos to Lovie Smith and the rest of the Bears front office for working a trade for a real quarterback. It Cutler comes anywhere close to living up to his potential, I had better start brushing up on my Super Bowl Shuffle.

Now JOhn has to get a new Bronco's jersey! He just got that Cutler jersey last year!

Lol. He can still wear this one in memory of the one who got away.

What does "punky" mean?

It's a reference to a rap song the 1986 Bears put out. In the song, Jim McMahon referred to himself as a "punky qb".

New 'Do

For probably the last 10 years or so, I've had pretty much the same hairstyle. For the most part, it's been long, all one length, and I would eventually put it up in a ponytail almost every day, because I couldn't stand having it in my face. It drove me crazy, but I didn't know what to do with it, and at the same time, I liked that I could basically get up and go every day without a lot of effort. For the past several months now, I've been threatening to do something different and drastic, and finally, yesterday, I did. At the recommendation of Angel, I made an appointment with her stylist. It took several weeks to get in, but finally, the day arrived. Angel went with me, for moral support, and to be the photographer. I went in with some basic ideas, but after some consultation and looking at photos with Francine, this is what I ended up with. First, the "before" shot: In process: And finally, the finished product: I can't remember the last time
Hi, my name's Tracie and I'm a Mormon. That being said, I've provided enough context for the conversation I had with the receptionist at work today: Christy: (Showing me a photo) What picture is this movie from? Me: Mmmm, Serendipity maybe? Christy: should know this. Me: I should? Christy: (Finally) It's from the movie "Charlie"! Me: How would I know that? I don't watch Mormon movies. They're dumb. Now that I've let the cat out of the bag, I guess I should also confess that I also don't listen to Mormon pop music (other than the original recording of The Forgotten Carols), or read Mormon fiction. So sue me. Let's face it, it's not like most of them are of real quality anyway. When it comes to Mormon music, I'll stick with my MoTab and the hymns of Zion.

Triple D Divas Do Northern Utah

Last Saturday, the Triple D Divas met for a day trip get-away to Northern Utah - specifically Logan and Brigham City (with a little touch of Idee-ho thrown in for good measure). We started our journey with lunch at the Bluebird Cafe. Everyone knows about the Bluebird - it's about the oldest place on main street, and is tradition for anyone whose ever done a Logan Temple Trip. We went in to see the Logan Tabernacle, and I snapped this cool picture of the oragn pipes. (Of course, now that we're all in our 40's and have shrinking bladders, the Tabernacle also made for a clean and convenient potty stop.) ...Also a view of the Logan Temple spires from outside the Tabernacle...    From there, it was off to Glossner's Cheese Factory for some squeaky cheese. After that, we went to the Pepperidge Farms Outlet, and the girls all found some cookies and stuff.  But nothing really excited me there.  However, the outlet is located in
