My Mission Statement

Life is funny sometimes and I think we have to enjoy that. This is meant to be one of those funny things. My wife blogs, so I am going to make fun of what she blogs about. To learn the most about me you should learn about my wife.

11 Things


  1. I think a house with the outdoors, inside would be cool, so I could camp in my bedroom.
  2. I fluctuate between wanting to do art and wanting to just copy Jackson Pollock.
  3. Battlestar Gallactica is one of the nerdiest things I do, but cool nerdy.
  4. Sometimes food is unappealing, really only when I am asleep.
  5. Flexibility is overrated when I can just get one of those Gopher Grabbers to get something for me.
  6. I want a longer mullet
  7. I hate clipping my finger and toenails
  8. I am going to be in college forever
  9. I miss my beard, a lot. I have asked my boss at BYU to make it a requirement that I have a beard for the job, and both times she has just laughed at me.
  10. My fish is blue, but not in a sad way.
  11. I bought a scarf last month, which was probably the first item of clothing I have bought in 4 months. Which really isn't saying much.
  12. Extra!: I like bow ties, and not because they are ironic, but because I like them better then regular long neck ties.

The Burning House (literal)

Really though, who has time to grab all that stuff? So this is what I would really get:
Any pictures I can grab
A Coke for the road
And maybe the rug

The Burning House (mine)

I would bring, from left to right and top to bottom (besides Britt):
My mission scriptures
Phone (someone texted me in the picture!)
Mission Letters home
Bow Tie from Wedding
Mission name tag
All the photos that I can grab

The Burning House (interpretation)

What Britt is trying to say with what she would bring, if our house burnt down:
1) She would leave me
2) Our TV is not nice enough to save
3) She would most likely be taking pictures with the digital camera that is not in the picture, as our house was burning down. 

I am reminded of my wife...
and it also reminds me of Narnia.

Meet the newest member of our little family.

When Brittany says she is obsessed with our new fish, Magikarp, it is an understatement. She has sat by his bowl for probably 20 min. straight, just watching him. But who can blame her, he's cute. And it is very mesmerizing to watch him swim.

The day my hair was finally long.

Hey look Ma, my mullet is getting longer!

On growing.

I grow horizontally.

Uncle Sam's

Uncle Sam's had almost everything a man could want, except grills and meat. I want to get a tent, maybe some sleeping bags. The only thing I would change about our trip would be that I wouldn't rip my pants. It was kind of awkward.

Of Monsters and Men.

Thanks, Iceland, for being so green.
Thanks, block classes, for trying to cram so much into a shorter time.
Thanks, hot showers, for existing for my wife, and then running out for me.
Thanks, mountains, for being rocky.
Thanks, wife, for knowing when I need to buy more Coke Zero.
Thanks, Heavenly Father, for having a sense of humor.

Some Fish

The next few days will have a lot of posts. Yes, I'm spoiling you.

Oh wait, it's winter?

All I know is is that 1) something with this little fabric shouldn't cost that much and 2) I really don't care what my swimsuit looks like, but some one else does. I don't think I will be wearing any of these.

(some) Sunday Mornings

This only happens on days we roll out of bed before noon on Sunday.
