My not so secret crush on Steve Carrel

If you refer back to one of my old posts I admitted to a not so secret crush on Steve Carrel. I think he is so funny and charming and I always joke to Curtis that if I ever met him I would ask him to father my next child. Well today I met him at my neighborhood Sugarhouse Smiths! I was just standing chit chatting with some friends from our ward the Lockes, when Tyson Locke said "That guy looks a lot like Steve Carrel." I looked up and sure enough Steve Carrel and his wife came walking towards us and I said "What are you doing in my grocery store?!" (I know clever right) he just laughed and I said I am a big fan and that I always tease my husband that I want him to father my next child and then he laughed and said "Meet my wife Carol" (remember his real estate agent on the Office Carol? That is his real life wife) Then he told us he was here to ski and we said welcome to Salt Lake. Can you believe what a dork I am? What is it about meeting celebrities? Lets hope I never randomly run into Jude Law I might propose on the spot! Hope you all enjoy how crazy I am!

Sophie! Annie!

When Annie and I first became friends her little niece Gracie thought it was really fun to say our names together, Sophie! Annie! we thought is was so cute and funny. Four years later we have shared so many experiences. Annie was my best friend through my pregnancy, we saw each other almost every day. Deacon and Alfie were born just a simple month apart and as you can see Deacon met Alfie within the first day of his life. The two little boys have a million of the same things because we shopped for our babies together so much! (their mommies also gained a million pounds while in our bellies because we ate so much together!) The boys have matching Jazz jerseys that Curtis gave them and Deacon has a cowboy blankie his Aunt Annie made him. I was a bridesmaid in Annies beautiful wedding and this past weekend I watched her in the sealing room as she and her husband Steve were sealed to each other and to that sweet little baby. My heart felt like it would explode because I was so happy for them. The whole time I was in the temple I just kept thinking how thankful I am to be sealed to my own family. I am so happy for you Annie!
