Goosebumps & Palpatations

I saw this hip-hop routine on So You Think You Can Dance last week and it STILL gives be goosebumps all over. I've never watched a hip-hop routine that has made me almost cry until now.

A little background: They are telling the story of a boy who just received his deployment papers to Iraq and he's breaking the news to his girlfriend.

*Note: If you have a significant other, you may want them close by... cause you're going to want to jump their bones!*

The credit of this next tibit of YouTube.com goodness goes to my penpal, Kawika. He told me about this particular artist. Naturally, I "Googled" him and found this.

His name is Justin Nozuka. I love his sound ...and his face. Those of you that know me well will know right away one of the reasons I'm so drawn to him. He makes my heart skip a beat (just a little bit).

This song is called "Criminal". He also plays the guitar. Only downside--he looks crazy young!

This is a formal shout out to my MOST EXCELLENT SISTER KATIE! Today is her birthday and I want her to know how much I love her and look up to her!


She recently moved and is livin' it up in Kanab, UT. I miss her being up north with us, but I am so impressed with the way she so gracefully takes on new challenges and acts in COMPLETE faith. Within a year she moved to NYC for 6 months, moved home, and now lives in Southern Utah (how opposite can 2 places be).

Katie has always been one to forge her own path...she's fearless! I love that about her. Because she always strives to do the right thing, she's always able stand by her choices with integrity.

Katie is so wise! I feel really blessed to have my own personal life "guru" (for lack of a better word). Countless times she has been there for me when I've needed a shoulder to cry on, advice on a frustrating situation, dating advice, fashion advice, or just a good laugh. Whatever the advice, one thing is always there, and that's the spirit. She has this amazing ability to tie everything into the gospel. You can't not feel the power of here testimony when you talk to her.

Thanks for being such a spectacular sister Katie! I love you! Happy Birthday!
