Reality TV junkie

Tonight Kelly and I started watching the first episode of the new season of Amazing Race and yesterday we saw the first Survivor episode of the season. We like the top three in the first night the best. Then there's American Idol that I've been following (and don't even get me started on commenting on that...it would take too long), and add in a Biggest Loser (I like the Polynesian guys the best). I'm a sucker for these shows and don't think I'd watch them if it weren't for the DVR. Lately, we'll wait to watch them on the weekend when we have some free time because we haven't been watching many movies lately. Should be an entertaining new season, then when the weather is good, I'll be out in the pool again!

Thank goodness for DVR...Jody and I are huge American Idol junkies, too. This season looks like it is going to be really good.

I just can't get into those shows. I guess I'm a non-reality junkie.

Amazing Race cannot be categorized with those other shows- it is not junk!
I haven't gotten into Idol yet. I might once it gets narrowed down a little. But, I'm excited for the new season of survivor! I have caught a few of the biggest loser episodes. Trust me, compared to what i'm watching, your shows are not junk! But, I agree, I do love the dvr. Heaven sent for sure!

Kellybrie!
I was worried our mugshots would be posted on here... that does give me an idea...
I too like LOST, and we are into Survivor, watch Amaz. Race off and on,even though we think it's really good - must be a timing issue. Next food network star, design star, project runway, the list goes on and on. too Fun!

My fave team on AR is the mother and son that came in 1st last week!

I triple love Biggest Loser, and the Polynesian guys are also my fave, although I do like Kristin and Tara. They're so focused! I am truly inspired by them.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
