I am currently in a cognitive development class and I am learning some really interesting things ... We do a lot of different 'experiments' to prove the professor's point and I would like to share one that was really fun, no cheating, scroll down slowly
Read the COLOR NOT the WORD
Not too hard right? Hopefully you got them all right... haha k again
Read the COLOR NOT the WORD
So, was the second one harder than you thought it would be? Should have been! :) The point of this being in the second one it is hard for us to say the color and not the word due to the fact that our brain processes the word so quickly that it can't help but spit it out! I thought it was pretty funny how hard such a simple task became.
I also found out that there are these glasses that make you see the world upside down, and after a day or so, your eyes flip the image so while wearing the glasses you see the world right side up. After your eyes have made the flip and you take the glasses off... you see the world upside down! And your eyes have to correct the image again. How cool is that?!
The mind truly is an amazing thing ... and a testimony of our Heavenly Father creating us

I have this habit of mine where if Woody asks me if I want something to eat or drink, I don't really think about it I just say ' no thanks!'. What usually happens is Woody will go get a drink or a cookie or whatever, he'll come back and it will look real tempting. So I eat some of his. With this he'll become a little disgruntled, mostly amused and go get himself some more. BUT last night he made a trip to the kitchen and asked if I needed anything, I responded my usual reply, 'no thanks' and off he went. He came back with a cup of water, which upon site I realized I was thirsty and drank some of it and he pulled out a thing of fruit snacks. I looked at it, and my eyes got real wide and I got a little smile on my face and so he said 'ok you can have it' and tossed it to me! Holy cow, I thought how sweet is he that he would give up his fruit snacks. And then, mischievously, he pulled out another bag of fruit snacks! Saying that he knew I would have eating his so he just brought two
hahaha what a smart man.

For valentines weekend Woody and I had the pleasure of venturing down to the b-e-a-utiful Las Vegas! Woody had to work Friday night, so Saturday morning we drove down to las vegas. The weather there was so beautiful it made me wonder why I ever moved to Utah... I know the reason I currently live there, just one, Woody. well and maybe brighton and Kherrington, and their parents but anyways... upon our arrival we helped out a little bit with getting the house ready for Heidi to have her party there that night and then pappa Albright took us frisbee golfing. What a perfect day for frisbee golfing. Dad and I played on a team and we beat woody!! Which is quite the feat because Woody is dang good.. he throws way too far! While we were playing frisbee golf we saw this group of kids in long flannel shirts, jeans and a few with cowboy hats and woody though.... what are all those polygamists doing?? And then he saw Heidi.... haha unintentionally we were spying on her during her date. Afterwards we hung out at the house for a little bit and then Woody took me to dinner for Valentines day to the Olive garden, which, as always, was delicious!! And VERY filling. On Sunday we went to Ryan's homecoming and it was sooo fun to see him again, he's still the good old Ryan a little matured :) he did great on his talk. We also snuck into Breyden's farewell and got to hear my cousins sing, which is always fun. Afterwards we hung out at the Newsons and played lots of games with the family!! IT was so much fun to be able to go home and hang out in the warm weather, I love the chance to go home and see my mom dad and heidi :) but now it is back to regular life
Our VaLEntInes DatE:Compliments to Heidi for my outfit.. her shirt, earrings, necklace, headband, and boots... love going home to a whole new closet :)
Yes, were still just as ridiculous taking pictures... but I love them and HIM mostly Him

Woody and I went to our first jazz game on monday and we had soo much fun! We were supposed to go last monday, however our tickets never came!! So we bought some pizza and watched it at home.. I am proud to say I am officially a jazz fan.. I have a shirt, went to a game, and can name all of the players and a few other trivial facts about my Utah Jazz team. Woody and I had a blast, and since the Jazz are so flippin cool, and got six blocks, we got free tacos at Taco Bell!! Thanks Utah JAzz
My welcome 'to the fan club' gameHe looks good with scruff and glasses... I married me a hottie

I am fully aware that I do not say everything normal. Woody is always telling me that I pronounce 'milk' like 'melk' and 'pillow' like 'pellow'. I recently made gheridelli brownies and was pronouncing that with a 'j' sound whereas Woody (and a few others) informed me that it should be with a 'g' sound.... I have recently noticed that I delte the letter 'l' in the word 'always'. And everyone's personal favorite I pronounce 'dangit' like 'dane-it'... The list is never ending I swear. I also have the Albright girl voice.. we all sound the exact same, high pitched and all. I have been told a few times in my life that I have a hint of an accent, and people are usually disappointed when learning that I am from Las Vegas (apparently that's not where my accent should be from) However, I had an interesting comment today that threw me off gaurd. I got asked if I was from Texas. Really? Texas? Huh that's a new one.. I had said one sentence to the guy and the only thing I can think of that he picked up on was that I said ' how can i help YA' instead of 'how can i help you'... I guess I'll need to be more proper from now on and watch my pronounciation, word choice, and pitch
