provo date

last night b was a gem and took me to world of dance at byu. this show was one of my favorite things while i was in college -- i think i went every year i was a student, so naturally i wanted to go again now that we're back here.

each of the dance groups at byu participate in the show -- folk dance, ballroom, ballet, modern, etc etc. however, i recall that while i was a student the cougarettes were in it too and they were my FAVE...so i was disappointed that they weren't part of the show this year :(

regardless, the show was great. i was seriously reconsidering my decision to attend during the first half of the show, watching b squirm in his seat half the time [he is not a fan of male ballet dancers' tights] and watching boring kooky dance numbers the rest of the time. but, all was redeemed at the end due to a fantastic indian number -- i've always been a fan of bollywood movies and this song was right up my alley. [it was actually a song off bride and prejudice -- a movie that sayid from lost is in, randomly. the dude's got moves...watch the music video here :) ]

annnnyway. before the show we had some delicious jdawgs hot dogs for dinner. mmmm i love them. special sauce, onions, pickles, mustard, ketchup.



he was a happy boy:



we watched a really cool storm roll in over the mountains...



then we headed over to campus and saw a rainbow! we also saw these guys from the sword & quill club [similar to medeval times], practicing for their next dragon slaying no doubt. so i had to get them in the photo too :) classic byu.



we took a picture to document the moment. my myspace self-portrait shots are seriously lacking these days [sorry, half of b's face].



then we headed over to the byu bookstore to load up on candy for the show. i worked at the bookstore during my senior year of college as a cashier...it was the BEST job ever. mostly i just read books and occasionally helped people check out. plus i got a discount. anyway, it was kinda weird to be back in my old haunt.



then it was the show, and then we came home to watch the season premieres of the office and survivor [both of which were fantastic]. it was a great date night...for provo, i guess :)

JDawgs. Yum.

I love Fall in Utah. That rainbow must have been something spectacular because I saw the exact same one on a couple other Provo-ite's blogs!
