You stay classy San Diego... we know we will

So, here's a little update for ya. If you haven't talked to TJ and I for a little while you might be surprised to know that we are back in Salt Lake...for good...for a little while. TJ had an awesome opportunity with his job to come back to Salt Lake and we thought about it for a second and I was on a plane 3 days later to find us a place. I was able to find us a great duplex in Holladay. Now here is the time line for these events. We found out about the opportunity in the the first week of September and we were in Salt Lake all moved in the last week of September. Kind of a whirlwind but I don't think that we would have it any other way.
Now this brings us to the present. I'm not doing my Esthetics right now because I am helping my mom with her store and I am starting a Consignment section for the store. So... if any of you girls are hanging on to any prom or special occasion dresses, let me help you sell them. TJ ran the St George Marathon for the third time at the beginning of October and he did an AMAZING job! If you have never ran a Marathon or if you have never been at the finish line of one I strongly recommend it. One of the coolest things. Anyway... we love being back in Salt Lake, but we miss San Diego. Who wouldn't. Now it's time to change the whole title of the blog. I don't really know how to do that. Remember I still new at this whole thing. I'll just wait for TJ to get home from basketball.

Nastia Liukin Eat Your Heart Out

Sydney sent this to me today and I enjoyed it enough that I thought I would share:

Dr. Ronald Chevalier

All of the fans of 'Flight of the Conchords' need to check out Bret's latest project.

He is going to be playing a Science Fiction writer in an upcoming movie and they have created a mock website for that character.

I think you will enjoy it, especially if you have ever read a sci-fi novel or know someone who reads them regularly as I do.

A Warning

Hi everyone... This is Alex. If any of you know me, you know that I'm not a huge fan of blogging and I have left it all up to TJ, but I have had some complaints. I have been hearing that no one knows what's going on in our lives and that we don't update our blog enough. I guess this is when I come in. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Let's be honest I'm not as clever or as funny as TJ is but I think I can do a pretty good job at keeping you all updated with what is going on. Don't worry everyone, TJ is still going to do an incredible job designing our blog and choosing the music and he will still make appearances. Maybe he will even start to post more often just to keep me from ruining the stellar reputation of this blog. Well I will update as soon as I can but for now I'm just waiting for TJ to get home from his Camping Trip with the Young Men so that we can hopefully go to the Knotts Soak City USA water park. Yeah... just a normal day for the Davis family.

The Fair Part Deux

When I told Alex we were going to the fair she was shocked:

Many of the devoted readers of this blog will remember last year's fair entry which was filled with excitement. For those of you who may have missed it you can find it by following this link

This year I got to watch the fair through the eyes of Alex as she was able to experience the joy of greasy food, ugly people, and carnies for the first time. Here were some of our highlights:

- Practicing being old people by walking through all of the exhibition halls and actually spending time at the home improvement booths.
- Trying out an 'exercise' machine that you basically just stand on and it vibrates your entire body.
- Signing up for a timeshare presentation with Wyndham in exchange for 2 nights hotel in San Francisco, 4 Padres Tickets, $100 gift cards towards concerts, and 2 movie tickets.
- Going through the dirtiest fun house I have ever seen.
- Learning that Weird Al Yankovich was playing in concert that night and getting in for free. As an added bonus we sat with all the lazy obese people in rascals and watched them sing along joyously to his famous song 'Fat'.
- The food. I enjoyed an Italian Sausage sandwich, a hot cinnamon roll, and an orange julius. Alex had a meatball sandwich with a smoothie for good measure.
- Learning about Alex's personality through the amazing, evil, handwriting recognizing, fortune telling machine. For those of you who don't know Alex, this is what I learned from the machine:

She has great investigative ability
Ambition is her driving force
She likes to be in control at all times
She needs to learn to relax
She lets her heart rule her head
She enjoys the attention of the opposite sex
She enjoys sharing her happiness
She is most attracted to Gemini's and Taurus' (luckily my birthday falls on the cusp between those two zodiacs)

Here are our favorite pictures of the day:

No, I was not pitting out during this moment, however I must have pitted out enough in this shirt that the fabric underwent a chemical reaction that is picked up by the flash.
Shakin' it
More Bubbles
A picture with the witch that runs the fortune telling machine
Yes, that really is Weird Al!

We're Going to Disneyland!

Okay we already went. Last weekend we decided to drive up to Orange County for the weekend and go to Disneyland. I had given Alex a 2-Day ticket for her birthday back in December and we finally used it.

Is it me or are Rascals taking over Disneyland and other amusement parks?

I don't want to come across as insensitive to people who really need them, but I guess if we need more proof that obesity is becoming an epidemic one only need go to an amusement park. For the majority of people I would actually think that not using a rascal might help cure their ailment. Since when did not walking while eating churros help someone deal with their obesity? I also don't understand why the majority of them need to be so grumpy. I would be happier if I got to ride a go-cart around disneyland all day. Again these comments are not intended towards people who really need them, only overweight individuals who appear to have given up on the world, but still desire to go to the happiest place on earth.

We went to California Adventure on Saturday. I was reminded that it really isn't that great of a park. Other than the Rollercoaster, Soarin' Over California, and The Tower of Terror there aren't many rides worth going on. I did drag Alex into see the live Aladdin Musical (I am secure with my sexuality). That was great. We also really enjoyed the Old School Light Parade. We had time to also go out and watch Iron Man in the middle of the day when we were hot and bored.

On Sunday we went to Disneyland. The new Submaries beat our expectations, but we recommend going there first thing in the morning before the line gets to be two hours long. The park wasn't crowded at all and we were able to go on pretty much everything multiple times. We ate more churros than we should have and had a great weekend.

Here are some pictures:
